This place has a great reputation in Nairobi as a date spot, but it's skating on that -- the food is just totally abysmal. Sticky, cloying pastas; cold pizzas with unmelted cheese; fish blander than you can get for literally 1/5 the price at unmarked roadside taverns. The ice cream, however, is great -- go for dessert.

Worst pizza I've had in a long time. I live round the corner yet it was cold. It was also not fully cooked, the cheese wasn't melted and was very pale and tasted bad. Worst of all there was hardly any topping at all. So basically it was over 1000 shillings for a cold, undercooked cheese pizza with no topping.

All meals are served with a free bruschetta on pizza bread as a starter, which is very nice. The food is well prepared (the best Italian in Kilimani) and the wine choices are good, but it's the true Italian artisanal ice-cream that it's worth coming for.

My experience is pretty much summarized by the title of my review. I expected the steak to come hot and steaming, for it to arrive lukewarm and overcooked. I guess my eyes were closed by the free (on-the-house) welcoming pizza that we were given in order to whet our appetites. They do have an impressive selection of wines. But please... More

The Ice Cream was great and the Variety was good The staff are always friendly and will always let you taste you different flavors in case you... More

I've been coming here for years. It's a nice little place, however it can get really crowded and a bit busy. The food is always good, the wine chilled. However they don't always have everything on the menu. Sometimes there is a live band on, which can vary in quality but always lively.

The osteria is a big, big restaurant. In the grounds it has a very good cake bakery and a ice-cream shop. The restaurant itself seats an enormous number of guests, indoors and outdoors, and even big groups will see their a la carte ordered meals served in one go. Very professional! The food is very good, though some of the... More
