My husband and I joined two friends at Osteria del Chianti when visiting Nairobi. Even on a cold night, this crowded restaurant has an open feel. The restaurant has an outdoor seating area, but it was too cold to sit outside that night. The server brought us a bruschetta pizza to nibble on while waiting for our order. The tomatoes were fresh and well seasoned. I ordered the spinach and cheese ravioli in a brown butter and sage sauce. The salt level was much too aggressive for my personal taste (and I like a lot of salt in my pasta water). For dessert, we shared a tiramisu and a chocolate mousse. The tiramisu did not have the depth of flavor that I expect of this dish. It was bland and watery. The chocolate mousse was rich and tasty, but it lacked the silkiness of a traditional mousse. Its consistency was similar to icing and somewhat grainy. In terms of service, our waiter was very nice. However, for what we ordered, the service was extremely slow.
