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.

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!

If you are white and preferably Italian, this is the place for you. If you are black and African please don't bother with this place, they will not be able to get a good table for you. I made a booking last week on Thursday at about 11.00 am and requested for a good table since it was my wife's... More

a great place for real Italian dinner in Nairobi. Vast choice on the menu, all the dishes cooked to your liking, the staff is very knowledgable of the product, extremely friendly and accommodating. Home-made desserts are to die for! One of the best dining experiences in Nairobi we had so far.
