Description: Osteria provides the best Italian food in Nairobi. In addition to their stunning chain of restaurants, Osteria also delivers to locations in Nairobi. The launch of Osteria takeaway in the city has received a warm welcome. The Osteria del Chianti restaurant menu is by many considered the best Italian in the region. With the launch of Osteria Warwick in Gigiri this year, Osteria now offers Sushi and Teppanyaki, arguably some of the the best Japanese food in the country. Visit us today for a slice of Italy.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 24, 2012 via mobile

Excellent food and service. Seating in the garden patio area is enjoyable on a warm bright afternoon. Would visit again when visiting relations in Kenya next time.

“Good Italian food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2012

If your looking for a good Italian restaurant in Nairobi,then don't look no further. This place has the best food,good service and after your fin you can always go next door to Cassablanca which is owned by the same person,it has an Arabic theme,you can smoke shisha n just chill out,or enjoy the bonfire outside. Fri,Sat are good for the disco.

“tasty rip-off”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2012

Ate there with a group of coworkers. The food was quite good, but the prices are outrageous for Nairobi. They also would not take our credit cards, because the network was supposedly down. We saw other patrons pay, however...

Be sure to ask for VAT receipt.

“Nice food, support a brothel”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2012

Osteria is a really Italian place in Nairobi. The owners seem to be Italian, and so is the menu. The owners seem to be the kind of restaurant owners that probably wouldn't have succeeded in their home country, but in a place where the bar is lower, they get away with it. Positive things: a fantastic ice cream parlor, and very nice setting. On the other hand, the food is really bad, considering the quite high price. And worst of all, is the fact that sleazy nightclub Casablanca is in the same compound. If you buy a lunch at Osteria, you also support the 2nd most prominent brothel in Nairobi. I would strongly urge everyone who goes to Osteria to consider the following question: would you like your lunch money to be part of a cartel that is based on women selling their bodies to the highest bidder?
