“Terrible Trattoria”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed December 15, 2012

Quality is terrible, food is gross, many disappointed visitors. The restaurant went from an icon in the city center to a disappointing disgusting bland over-priced tasteless experience. Do not over-pay for poor quality.

“Very good food for very reasonable price”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2012

Very authentic Italian food in the heart of the capital Kenya, Nairobi.
We visited this restaurant multiple times and have never been disappointed with the quality of the food nor the service. Child friendly as well. The staff would always have a friendly word to our son.
You would not expect an Italian restaurant with such delicious food in Kenya. The menu is extensive. The stuffed pasta in all its varieties is highly recommended.
The prices are very reasonable.
From the terrace on the first floor you have a view on the very busy traffic in the city center.
Downside : they don't accept credit cards.
Upside : when not having carried cash on our first visit, they brought us to our hotel with their free shuttle service to pick up our cash.
