Osteria provides the best Italian food in Nairobi. In addition to their stunning chain of restaurants, Osteria also delivers to locations in Nairobi. The launch of Osteria takeaway in the city has received a warm welcome. The Osteria del Chianti restaurant menu is by many considered the best Italian in the region. With the launch of Osteria Warwick in Gigiri this year, Osteria now offers Sushi and Teppanyaki, arguably some of the the best Japanese food in the country. Visit us today for a slice of Italy.

I loved the setting of the rustic old cottage. The free Bruschetta to start was amazing and the extremely generous pour of delicious Chianti made the meal. I ordered the Seafood Tagliatelli and it was perfect.

I had spinach ravioli, which was quite good. Vegetarian lasagna with white sauce was rather tasteless. It was remarkably peaceful set among high rise apt. bldgs. We had good service, but we were the first ones there for a Sunday lunch.

Have you ever had those moments when you fall upon a treasure and you feel like someone has been hiding a secret from you? Well, Osteria is one of those. I dropped in for their famed ice-cream and ended up sipping wine by candle light much to the delight of the waiters. Obviously popular among the expat community and not... More

Terrible service: it took unnecessarily long for someone to attend to us once we had sat down. And our drinks (2 glasses of wine and a beer) took almost 20 minutes to arrive! Once we had ordered our food our waiter ceased to exist, and only appeared over half an hour later to serve our meals. Also be advised, the... More

Enjoy the sprawling outdoor setting and roaring fires because the food isn't much for what you pay (steak ordered rare came medium-well) and they sneakily add 18% to your bill, a trick you miss unless you read the very fine print on the menu. It's basic but ok food, nothing memorable, and the manager didn't seem to care much when... More

Pre-made frozen and defrosted garbage. I cringe when people invite me here. Terrible management who are essentially just thugs.

After standing around for five minutes, we decided to seat ourselves seeing as the waiters who were rushing past clearly didn't have time to attend to us despite it being half empty. Another 15 minutes and we got the menus thrown on our table and perhaps another five minutes later, someone deigned to take our drinks order. Things started to... More

We went here after I arrived late into NBO airport. We felt that although we had arrived late, having been accepted to eat and been given a table, we should have then received the same service as expected, rather than being rushed. The service friendly and efficient, but a little rushed. However, our steaks were great and the overall setting... More

We totally didn't have the same experience as the former reviewers Chetal and John. And I'm glad we went! :-) The dinner was very tasteful and the service was excellent too! The garden is so beautiful and in the city-life really a really welcome change from all the busy traffic etc. You hear the birds, see beautiful trees and flowers... More
