Peymane – La Cucina brings together two seemingly disparate cuisines under one roof: the ocakbaşı tradition of Turkish cuisine (a meat restaurant with an open grill in the middle) by Peymane and Italian cuisine by La Cucina.
Before merging in Beyoğlu, Peymane was located in Asmalımescit for ten years, whereas La Cucina used to be a boutique, homey Italian restaurant located in Kemerburgaz.
Take the road down from Galtasaray Lisesi on İstiklal Caddesi and you’ll see Peymane - La Cucina on your left.
Now, Peymane – La Cucina is housed in a 5-storey historical building that includes an indoor-seating area, a garden, and a bar where DJ performances and stand-up shows will be held starting November. A VIP room is also available for those looking for a private area for their special occasion lunches and dinners.
There are two separate menus available at the restaurant. If you’re a meat fan, you can order from Peymane’s menu, which ranges from kebab dishes and mezes to salads and desserts, while your pasta-loving friend eats a classic pasta from La Cucina’s menu, which focuses on classic Italian dishes like pasta, risotto, and pizza.
