While friendly and in a useful location the way the food is put together has fallen off over the last two years. The ham on the pizza's just doesn't rate compared to what I like from Italy.

The restaurant is inside a shopping mall so for me was initially a turn off. However it is good to put aside conceived notions and so we had lunch there. It wasn't an exceptional experience but it was very pleasant and enjoyable. And of course you could still do your shopping, assuming you have energy left, after you meal.

My husband and I love to visit Osteria Gigiri. Their pizzas are so good, as are the pizzas. The service is attentive, and we love the complimentary flatbread served while you wait. They also have an extensive bar and wine selection, and charming atmosphere for being in Village Market.

I have been visiting this restaurant whenever I was in Nairobi. Living in Watamu (coast region), with Italian restaurants all over, I know nice and good Italian dishes. Try this place and you would feel like eating in the middle of Rom, they really know what they are there for. Thank you, sure this weekend, while in Nairobi will be... More

Fantastic food.....great wine selection and the staff are superb. Like a lot of restaurants in the Nairobi- the settings aren't always the best (views of car parks etc) but Osteria has a nice feel to it- and a nice outside area even though there is no view. The manager is also very welcoming.

don't like pizza? Get a steak, and wines, and salads. My favourite.

I studied in Florence in college. When we ate at Osteria, I felt like I was back in the old country! Great food and ambiance.

The owner is Italian - the food is genuinely excellent - the atmosphere equals the hospitality - this is a popular retreat for anybody who appreciates good Italian cuisine. We don't tend to eat out for the sake of it and Gigiri is our popular haunt because we feel welcome, pampered and enjoy our meal each and every time we... More
