Good pasta and a gym to wear out the kids

We were looking for a place with pasta and this fit the bill. The kids enjoyed playing in the gym while we waited for our meal. The wifi was some of the best we had while visiting Ethiopia. The wait staff was friendly and professional. I was disappointed that you can't order pizza at the... read more

The Juventus offers home-made Italian food at more than fair prices. The Gnocchi and the liver Venetian style are delicious.

I really like this restaurant, it has style, atmosphere and very good food. Staff are professional, friendly and attentive - they know the menu and wine list, so can recommend if you can't decide what to have. Great photos around the restaurant walls. Not far from Meskel Square, best to book if going in the evening. Can get very hot.... More

A limited menu, but very solid renditions of what it does. Had a very good, well-balanced, subtle lasagna. Portions are huge! Attentive staff, sweet old-school environment, kind of like stepping back in time. It took me forever to find the place, though!

The point of my review is this: if you would move this restaurant from Addis to Rome, it would be one of the best places to eat. The quality of the food is fantastic, unique ingredients, all home made at a perfection. Take the gnocchi: where do you eat gnocchi of this caliber? Perfect taste and consistency, just with best...

If the Brits had not invented pantomime, the Italians could have modelled one on Juventus - it is just outstanding enjoyment. The fresh bread and bruschetta are first class but do ask what is not on the menu that evening, or more exactly do ask what is on - it will save a lot of time in the long run!!... More

... Homemade zucca gnocchi with cinnamon a delight you do not find anymore in Italy. Excellent primi and secondi in a small and simple trattoria style place with able waiters. This is high quality.

Good place for simply Italian fare. Don't expect much atmosphere, it's within a sports club but worth a try when in Addis.

They open Juventus on Friday nights for the kids to ride their bikes or skateboards. There aren't a lot of places in Addis for kids to run around but this is a good environment on a Friday night. The restaurant is also very good and the pizzas available at the bar are decent.

This place is an institution in Addis: the club has been established during emperor's times and visiting the premises is some sort of time journey. Hardly anything seems to have changed since the 60th. The restaurant is cozy, waiters attentive and the food is good old style Italian. Recommended.
