Good pizza

New name, new management, same menu. We love their appetizer (flatbread with tomatoes). Their fishsoup is still too salty, there could be more prawns in the prawncocktail, but this is easily the best pizza we ate outside of Italy. I don't mind being the only guest on a Sunday evening, but this... read more

After a great experience in Talisman in Karen, we had heard that Osteria di Chianti (great place in Nairobi) had a sister restaurant in Karen. When we finally found it, it turned out they had sold it to other Italians who changed the name into "Eataly" ...bad start. The setting is beautiful, an old colonial country house in park-like surroundings,... More

The setting in the garden with a candle lit dinner is the most romantic restaurant around Karen area! The food may be over-priced and is not worth the quantity. I loved the setting in the forest !

I visited this place that my family and I loved so much. To our surprise ir changed and its under new management. When we saw the sign "Eataly Italian restaurant" we were huh? But tried it anyway. Portions were small but the prices were the same. Every one even my 5 year old finished his meal broccoli gorgonzola. There's no... More

Osteria is our regular Friday night haunt and has been so for 4 years. If you like Italian then this is the place. Great food reasonably priced, friendly atmosphere and a wonderful open fire. Outside play area with a pool for the kids and a superb Sunday lunch venue. The staff are brilliant! Only one caution, we believe it (only... More

Sad to see this once humming place looking tired and a bit desolate. Good pizza, friendly service. We were the only people there for lunch. Won't be going back. Shame.

I have often eaten here and have to say that the food is very consistent and the staff are wonderfully attentive without being over the top. Nice little touches such as bruschetta when you arrive add to a customer driven property. Can be noisy at the weekends with families and children taking advantage of the grounds and swimming pool.

When I stumbled upon Osteria Karen, I was rather surprised. I've eaten high end Italian cuisine from Rome to Tokyo and like to cook Italian as well. This food isn't at the highest level but the intent and attitude and atmosphere are all there. It's a beautiful setting and if you are craving Italian food and in the Karen area,... More
