“So so! ”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2013

On business in Nairobi and was taken to Osteria. Stunning outside area, lovely atmosphere, bur I was disappointed with the food. Had the special artichoke red snapper fish dish, and it was totally under seasoned and over cooked. Friends did enjoy their pizzas though.

The gelato icecream shoppy was brilliant, especially the pastashio!

“Osteria is off the list..Bad food and incompetent askaris!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2013

A few friends were at this restaurant for a birthday dinner last night (03/10/2013). All was ok whilst having dinner etc..or so we thought! This morning one of us has severe food poisoning - and he ate fish! So definitely not going back there!
When we arrived some of us were made to park outside as the inside parking was full! But of course there were askari's looking after cars etc so we didn't think much of it.
Only to find out when we got home last night, that my spare tyre from my RAV 4 was stolen - all with the cap etc! So what job were the askari's doing? Helping the thieves?? Do not park the car outside and more so don't go there!!

“Great garden atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2013

Good food, relaxed professional atmosphere; traditional hang-out for expats, NGO - and UN- aid junkies. Garden seating with parasols, clay ovens and wood fires to keep up the temperature (and the wildfire smells). Extensive menu, not enough accessible wines though...European prices. Efficient service, good hostmanship and an overall continental Italian 'feel' to it. Worth a visit.
