Not a traditional pizzeria, but one with a more quirky approach. They offer your staple pizzas and then improvise, some of the menu offerings include Thaifrican (satay sauce, mangos) and Zanzibar curry-inspired pizza. Overall, the food is tasty and served in large portions. The decor is Nairobi staple - rooftop, heaters, wicker furniture. It's fast gaining popularity as a good... More

I really loved the roof top experience, the furniture was simple but tasteful.The pasta with roast chicken was amazing from the presentation to the taste and the cost. The wait staff offered excellent service. If you are there on a hot sunny day you may want to be careful about where you sit because you may be in the sun... More

Mambo Italia is a welcome addition to the Lavington restaurant scene. Wonderfully decked out, very welcoming and with staff who are eager to please, the restaurant adds to this foundation with really good pizzas and pastas. The spicy calamari starter is very good and we would strongly recommend the Parma pizza! Mambo also deliver to your home - a godsend... More

Mambo Italia has the best pizzas ever in Nairobi and they make them exactly to your taste, no mistakes made! Their salads are really worth every penny and so fresh. Great service is given and they also have a very efficient delivery system. I highly recommend this place.

The Ambiance is really warm and the food is great with lots of options for vegetarians! They have a lot of variations for pizza. For dessert, the nutella pizza is a favorite for our daughter and for us too!

My husband grandma and I were recently at Mambo Italia in Lavington Curve Mall. We had starter of Calamari and 2 mains of mozzarella stuffed chicken which I guess was their twist on Chicken Kiev. The food was really delicious but the portion of Calamari rather small. Don't know if I was expecting much but it looked really little. I... More

Thanks for the great candid feedback. The calamari might look less because we don't serve breaded calamari - which will look like a bigger portion. However we'll look at it and see if we can increase the quantity. On the decor, you'd really need to put your finger on it and tell us :) Thanks you once more More

Not a great atmosphere as its inside a food court in a mall... but they do deliver and do take away! Pizza is great, service is food court type of service so definitely no ambiance. But otherwise its always tasty and good.
