Hadn't been here for a while but rediscovered a few weeks back. Couldn't remember why i hadn't been for so long! From their homemade soups and other great starters (try the Vitello tonnato), some great pastas and other good mains through to the homemade ice-cream and great Tiramisu, the food is consistently good. Service is good. Decent wine list. Always... More

Definitely one of the best Italian restaurants in town. Pizza, meats, seafood are excellent. Great specials!

My wife and I have eaten here several times over the past 15 years and we always enjoyed the steak. However my recent birthday lunch will be my last time, ever! I asked for a pizza with a slightly thicker base, the waiter brought me a pizza that was so thin it had 2 holes in it. When I sent... More

The place is perfect setting for an evening candle lit dinner. This tiny restaurant tucked cosily close to valley arcade serves lovely italian food and wine. A bit slow in service but overall a really nice cosy place. Try the tiramisu cake !

Tucked away in an apartment block behind Valley Arcade off Gitanga Road. Wonderful ambience, attentive service and brilliant well prepared real Italian food. Fantastic overall experience. Will definitely be back ...... often!!!

It's our favourite Italian in Nairobi. A surprising little find on the ground floor of a residential block. Spinach Ravioli and the Tiramisu were excellent so was the starter but I forget what it was.

Keep going there and never been disappointed with either the service nor the food. During lunch you could probably get by without a reservation. The last time we went absolutely by the owner,s ( think he was the owner, well Italian anyway) recommendations and weren't disappointed by any dish. Located inside a block of apartments can be slightly tricky to... More

My only real complaint is how small the portions were! I ordered the Cannelloni and while the dish was delicious, i was underwhelmed.. No side salad or anything. The Ravioli was nice as well but a bit too al dente for my taste.

Cosy little Italian hidden away in a unassuming part of a Nairobi suburb, inside a residential block of apartments. Walk in though and you get the feeling of being in a traditional Italian Trattoria -type restaurant with an almost homely feel to it. The food is quite nice, as authentic as possible here in Nairobi I guess, with a varied... More

Pastas are super al dente, pizzas are nicely done, even the deserts are fabulous. Go for the meat ravioli with Gorgonzola sauce. Definitely make a reservation before hand.
