A nice Italian restaurant with fresh, homemade food (including the pasta) and a pleasant atmosphere. Located just behind Valley Arcade at the base of an apartment building, easiest to park in Valley Arcade and walk through to the restaurant. The quality of the food is better than the typical go-to Italian restaurant in Nairobi (Osteria). I will definitely return many... More

This is a small restaurant located on the ground floor of an old high rise apartment building. It can be accessed either by the main entrance on Hendred Avenue or via Valley Arcade Shopping center on Gitanga Road. We went there for lunch, with no reservations and they were able to accommodate us. I think we were lucky though...I can... More

Everything at La Salumeria will remind you of an Italian trattoria, from the simple decor to the short but varied menu. I dined here on a Sunday with the family and was pleased of the choice. We tried the homemade ravioli spinach and ricotta with butter and sage (delicious!) and the fish in lemon sauce. The kids took a pizza... More

I dined here this past October and a bit of a challenge to find, but with today's phones and a good taxi driver, it was no problem at all. I was most impressed with the quiet setting and the actual layout of the restaurant and it had a very warm and comforting feel to it. Talked to David the owner... More

Awesome ambience and very intimate and excellent service. The food is super tasty and delicious. Had a T-bone steak and it was juicy and succulent made to my spec. Most definitely coming back. Amos the waiter is an amazing steward very well versed and a joy. Keep it up.

The restaurant is like a small italian house, They have the best pizzas in Nairobi and the quality of the food makes a difference. The service is very good and the owner is always around. The value for money is fine.

I find that this is probably the best quality Italian food one can find in Nairobi. Mediterraneo and Osteria are very substandard and inconsistent. Great price and value for your money whereas Mediterraneo and Osteria rips you off!
