Centrally located at a business district, quite close to Dedeman, The Plaza and The Point Hotel... Serves mainly Italian cuisine, tasteful and delicious...Also offer Daily Menu everday for lunch...My favorite were the salad and the veggie pizza...The ambiance and level of service can be improved for further guest satisfaction...Menu and prices OK, yet the Beverage menu a little bit overpriced..

I visited this restaurant with work colleagues as it was near to the offices. The restaurant was busy, however we were shown to a table that wasn't cleaned and we had to keep reminding them to come back to clean the table and give us menus. Again it took some time to come back and take the orders. Everytime long... More

I ate at Maci twice while staying at the nearby Dedeman Hotel. In both instances the service was friendly and efficient. The staff speaks English and the menus are also in English. Most important, the food was excellent. Unlike other reviews, I have no reason to complain. I enjoyed myself during both visits.

Large portions of average food as far as I could see. The menu is pretty extensive but the quality of the food I ate, mozzarella and tomatoe (not terribly fresh cheese I'm afraid) and fruti del mare spaghetti (a large portion of poorly flavoured sauce and fish) just wasn't great. The place looks good and the atmosphere is pleasant, but... More

Great food, great price. A "neighbourhood" type of place - simple, spotless - frequented by locals but with an English menu to hand. Oh and nice house wine.

One of the best, if not the best, pizzas in Istanbul! Baked in the oven. Pastas and risottos are very good too. Tiramisu here is to kill for. Cozy outdoor area. Another hall in the basement. The restaurant run by a family, one of the owner is always there to greet you and get feedback later. Gets crowded for lunch.... More

Staying in Besiktas

Neighbourhood Profile
In Besiktas, skyscrapers compete with palaces for space in an upscale vista replete with hilly green parkland filling in the margins. Step into this rather wealthy neighbourhood and discover a rich mix of opportunities to shop, dine, and be entertained. For folks in search of urban buzz, not to mention a constant reminder of just how important Istanbul’s waterways are to its rich history, there's the frenetic Besiktas ferry terminal or the city’s most vibrant fish market to explore. For a timeout of metropolitan proportions, head to the bucolic Yildiz Park or the chic Bosphorus-side fishing village of Ortakoy. Attractions such as the grandiose Dolmabahce Palace and a bevy of other stately residences await admiration. To be sure, this large and not overly touristy swath of Istanbul yields plenty of pleasure for all.
