“Italian as it used to be...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

Good food served in a kind of appealing 1970's decor. In the centre of town but don't hold that against it...food and wine are all good, you will not be disappointed...I had some sort of pasta 'a la Zefferano'...really yum yum.

“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.
