One of the best restaurants in Nairobi without fail. The service is always good and the food is excellent. Great place for a steak and the house wine is also of a good standard. The prices have remained the same for many years and as such offer excellent value for money in comparison to other places.

Went for a quiet birthday dinner with my family and was hoping to get an OK experience but it was just lovely. The ambiance is great! Very quiet and hidden, we were welcomed warmly. The bread was freshly baked and warm, loved it!! The servings were good and the cordon bleau (sp) was especially fantastic. I will definitely go back!

Visited with a friend on a rainy night after waddling through heavy traffic. The food did not disappoint. Good food with a matching house wine. Generous on bread, olive oit and Parmesan cheese. Easy unobstrusive service and a lovely date night venue.

Salumeria has long been a favourite of Nairobi residents, and for good reason. This is probably the only proper, authentic Italian place in Nairobi. The food is fresh, creative, and most of the pastas are home made. The chef also keeps his clientele loyal by changing the specials on the menu weekly. The ambience is cosy and romantic - it...

With a group of six other friends, we had dinner on a Wednesday evening and it was good we booked a table anyway, because the place got rather packed towards the middle of the dinner time. The restaurant feels a little crammed, especially the indoors bit, a clear sign that all the floor space is used up for business. The... More

Thanks for ruining my birthday. Why should someone bother to make an elaborate reservation and it is not honoured. So annoyed. Never Again shall I bother to come here.

La Salumeria does have that cliche Italian restaurant feel. Service was good, and food pretty average. We felt particularly let down by cold undercooked potatoes. Outside seating nice if the weather is good; best to book on weekends if you want a nice table.

Haven't been here in 11 years, and really enjoyed our dinner there this past Friday. This charming and cosy restaurant feels warm and welcoming. The food and service were both good and I'm looking forward to going back.
