Arka Restaurant & Pizzeria, Bodrum

Situated in a narrow alley among the souvenir shops of the pedestrian-only part of Cumhuriyet Caddesi in the center of Bodrum, Arka Restaurant & Pizzeria is one of the hidden gems of the area. Easy to overlook when passing by, yet well-known by locals, the place combines local hospitality and Italian flair.

Reasonably priced pizzas with a variety of toppings are the main reason for visiting the restaurant, but not the only one. The menu also includes classic Italian antipasti such as bruschetta, caprese salad, or carpaccio, and would not be complete without various types of pasta and risotto. Add a wide selection of soft Italian wines into the mix and you have a recipe for a great, casual night out. Dinner reservations are highly recommended.

Open daily, noon-11pm.
