“That's Italian!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2013

This is a favorite of Nairobi regulars, recommended by our hotel. The pasta is homemade--truly outstanding. There's a balcony to sit out and enjoy the vino and delicious cusine.

“Enjoyable”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 18, 2013 via mobile

Enjoyed a lovely lunch on the second floor terrace overlooking the street. I had pizza and my son spaghetti bolognese and veal Milanese - all we're very good. One of the best meals we had in Nairobi.

“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.
