Еда была жуткая. Причем еда во всех отделениях этого ресторана. И в Вилидж маркет и в Карен. Я заказала коктейль из креветок и они были недоваренные. Лазанья была пресной и невкусной, а так же не аппетитно выглядела. Муж заказал спагетти с креветками и нашел там кусок проволоки. Вместо того, как в нормальном ресторане не брать с нас деньги хотя бы... More

My husband and I joined two friends at Osteria del Chianti when visiting Nairobi. Even on a cold night, this crowded restaurant has an open feel. The restaurant has an outdoor seating area, but it was too cold to sit outside that night. The server brought us a bruschetta pizza to nibble on while waiting for our order. The tomatoes... More

During a previous stay in Nairobi, 2 years ago, I had heard quite a bit about Osteria, and during my latest trip - having read more negative reviews than new positive ones - I had been in doubt as to whether to pay a visit. Well... pay I certainly did, as the place is priced out of proportion. The service... More

... definitively the standard has gone down. Nice waiter, but with not much knowledge. For the Dry Martini he suggested black olives as they were out of green ones....The house white wine - he wasnt sure what it was. Food was ok, not fantastic, not bad. But of course the grilled salmon would have been better if the fishbones had... More

The food was very bland. We had ordered 2 Penne Osteria and a Margheritta Pizza, the portions were relatively small. There was no seasoning, there was no flavour. We were also over charged on drinks, extras, that we had not consumed. Only realised that after we had left the restaurant. The restaurant was busy and the service was seriously lacking,... More

The Ribollita had no bread (it's the main ingredient) The focaccia had no salt The lamb chops were basically raw. The chicken pate was ok but nothing to write home about. The asparagus chicken was bland, had never seen an asparagus not even in a previous life and promptly tipped the balance form "delicate" to "super bland". The "Chianti" wine... More

The food is typical Italian style comfort grub, pasta, real Italian salami and prosciutto, nice pizzas, the Snapper is usually good. Wine is expensive...but most people go for the romantic evening ambiance under umbrellas log fires etc...very handy for the attached and co-owned Moroccan themed Casablanca night club and bar next door!

Osteria has good pizza but the other food is very average. Nice setting, but lacks execution.... For better food, go to Salumeria.

We went there a group of 4 people after reading some good review of this place. The atmosphere in there was really nice and the outside area where we enjoyed our meal was really nice! I have to say that the prices were a bit higher (Kenyan standard) then many other places ive dined at but a main meal for... More

Used to love dinning at this place and the service used to be great. Over the last few months it has just gone from great to terrible. The waiters are confused, it os taking 45 minutes to get drinks and two hrs to get food. Order is even wrong. Today is the last day for me to come to come... More
