An Italian gentleman owns this restaurant and you can always find him there. It offers the best in Italian cuisine. The restaurant is small and has very personalized service that never disappoints. It is a perfect place for pizza or steak. The restaurant has a special challenge for those willing to order one of their large T-bone steaks – your... More

At first we couldn't get any service. After we were rushed. The food is great but this was the 4th time that they treated us like we were getting the food for free. Not going back!

I had previously visited this restaurant and was really pleased with their service. I had booked via phone the previous day and spoken with the manager, Davide, but when I arrived they had no table for me. I was shocked, disappointed and embarassed. When I asked the manger he brushed it off and said he would be able to get... More

Local friends advised us the place and it was worth it. After 3 weeks in Nairobi, it is far the best Italian restaurant in town! Delicious pizza, very good meat as well and the service is excellent. We will come back for sure during our next trip.

If you want great Italian food with great ambience, this is the place to go. The restaurant is very cosy and the manager is hands on. Waiters are fantastic and food great. What more could you ask for. By far this is our favorite Italian restaurant in Nairobi. Kudos to management for maintaining great standards.

La Salumeria has been here for more than a decade. Fortunately, they have never gone for radical changes other than improve on service and what they bring at table....nonetheless, this still remains one of the coziest place to have a nice meal and catch up with a friend. I was there this week and decided to try the tagliata......just amazing!!!

My fiancé and I just recently moved to Valley Arcade and stumbled upon this gem as we were exploring the neighborhood. The only reason I haven't given this place 5 stars is because I saw a critter in the kitchen area that made me almost decide to leave before we ordered. However, I'm glad that I stayed as the food,... More
