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.

“Quaint!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2013

The ambiance keeps me going back - perfect for a business lunch or a special dinner. The food has a home feel to it. This will always remain one of my favs.

“Terrible food!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2013

I have been to this place a few times but always with the hopes to get a better experience with the service and food. Until the most recent time I went and ended up falling ill the next day. From the outside it looks like a motor way cafe in Europe .... nothing too special inside either and be very careful with the food and how its handled, one of the waiters had whispered to us later on that the toppings for pizza a picked up from the floor and used the following day!

“Great Atmosphere, Uninspired Food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2013

I've been here a bunch of times over the last decade and always left full and content. There's a delicious flat bread/bruschetta amuse bouche which may be my favorite part of every meal; specials and mains somehow consistently fall short on flavor. The quality of proteins is undeniable, but the care and concern one might wish for in every dish just isn't quite there. They think their tiramisu is their best dessert, by the way, but it's scarcely authentic. Best is to grab some of their gelato across the parking lot for dessert. Bizarrely, it's tough to get off the menu in the main restaurant. Service verges on the terrible, with waiters in the dark in the corners avoiding eye contact at all cost.
