I'm always anxious at trying new places and not knowing the reputation of their food. But I got it right and ordered the Pasta Osteria with a delicious cream-based tomato sauce and mushrooms. Just to die for!!!! Decided to conclude this lovely meal with dessert and ordered the Tiramisu. What I received was a piece of dry cake with icing... More

I could not find Osteria warwick centre on tripadvisor but since it is located in gigiri, this is the closest connection I thought. I went to this restaurant with a friend on the 26/08/2013 and was very disappointed. There is some construction work going on at Warwick centre hence the outside sitting of the restaurant has terrible views of cement... More

Located in the Village Market, Gigiri. The best lamb chops in the city! Juicy, tasty, simply delicious! Candles on the tables, makes it a special dinner along with the nice jazz small trio they have. Perfect!

I tried the ravioli from the menu one evening, which was done very nicely. Some great innovative ides to choose from. The lunch special for KES 1000 is great value for money and one day I had beautiful fillet steak that melted in your mouth. The bruschetta that comes with every meal is made fresh and is full of colour... More

If you take the time to drive out to the Village Market, plan the timing of your trip to include dinner at Osteria Gigiri. The decor is nothing to write home about, but you're not there for the view ... it's the food. The menu has a number of excellent choices and even some surprising ones. I am partial to... More

Osteria is an Italian restaurant. The owner is very friendly and makes it a point to greet his customers, which is not very common in many restaurants in Nairobi. The food is very expensive, but also very good. When looking at the menu make note of the notice at the bottom stating that all prices are exclusive of taxes. Therefore,... More

Seriously, how wrong can you go with pizza, pasta, salad, Italian mainstays? The salads are limp and lifeless, the pizza has a stodgy base and stingy fillings. I have to say that the asparagus risotto is not bad, but as for the rest, well, average at best. And pricewise, like most places around Gigiri and other expat haunts, its not... More

Osteria's key strength is in blending great italian style ambiance with highly generous selections of wines and italian cuisines with great choices. I have eaten here more than 10 times and each visit has its story. the lively weekly entertainment has added more reason to frequent! Well done.
