“Great value, homemade pasta!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 2, 2013

I really like this place and think it has the best value Italian food in Nairobi. I think La Dolce Vita has the best Italian food in Nairobi, but this is cheaper and more conveniently located if you're not staying/living in Gigiri/Runda.

“Average Fair”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2013

Tucked behind Valley Arcade you need to let the askari know where you are going before he will let you in. Ordered two pizzas for a quick business lunch. On my vegetarian the artichokes were still cold which was disappointing.

The decor and outside seating are nice.

Service was okay but we had to ask for drinks more than once.

Maybe it was an off day, but there are better places for pizza around.

“Really good!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2013

I just had dinner there, and it was really good. The spaghetti were really al dente and the Tiramisu was delicious. Excellent place.

“Great New Find”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2013

This is a real little gem of a spot tucked away behind Valley Arcade in an apartment complex.
It is small and personal, I imagine it can get fairly cramped on weekends.The decor is great gives you the feeling of a family run spot in the back streets of a sleepy Italian town known to just a select few.
Food was great and very reasonable, had one of the best sea food pastas in a long time. Great great spot for a small group would not try to fit more then 8 people in round a table.
