“Lovely place for dinner and great Italian food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2013

This place was quietly tucked near the shopping center.If you looking for a nice romantic candle light dinner.This is the place to be.You can sit outside in open or inside the restaurant.The place is neither has too much lights nor too dark just perfect decor for nice evening.Prices seemed reasonable.We started with greek salad,another salad.We then moved to fried squid and prawns.We ordered vegetarian Lasagne which was simply out of the world.Vegetarian Pizza was also great.Basically everything we tried on our first visit was awesome.I would ve wanted to try out more on non veg side but since some of our frnds didnt ve non veg so we took more of vegetarian dishes.would surely visit again.

“Chain restaurant”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 13, 2013

hard to find hundred words...
is exactly what you expect from a chain restaurant. everything average.
I got a pizza, not too bad not too good.
beer just average choices.
my guest ate chicken. she wasn't impressed too.
price average too...
one think I did not like was the distance between tables. too close. having quite noisy people around in this city... is not what you really want.
if starving I will be back.....

“Chef'd day off?”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 9, 2013

This was really a disappointment. We been told good stuff bout the place so it may be better usually or have been at some point.

The place looks ok, one of the many italian wannebe's. Atmosphere seemed good.
The owner probably knew what he was doing when he made the place, before he got into some kind of careless stage.

Service average. Waiters seemed tired and with very little knowlegde when we asked about the menue. The didnt pay any attention to us except the most needed as bringing menues, drinks, food etc.

Food was served fast. To fast for a chef to deliver proper food, and we soon realised why.
The chicken breast was beaten until very thin and unrecogniseable. Like a thick paper. Then grilled until totally dry and tasteless. To cover the bad preparing it was totally covered under enourmeus amounts of tasteless sauce. We also ordered lamb that was so dry that u could break the slices as it was chips.
The lamb was also old. I meen really old. The parts off it that didnt have chips consistence was crumbling in our mouths
It had obviously been warmed several times.
At arrival we where extremely hungry, but we just couldnt manage to eat the food.

The waiters was probably aware of the kitchen situation because the avoided all our attempts of getting their attention until we signalized that we wanted to pay.
We then told our disappointment but got no other response than a sorry. Not even an explanation or a coffe offer. In the end we went home and made a nice dinner ourself. We just managed to cook it until the vomiting and diareea started...

I sincerely have to recomend ppl to stay away from this place until the management starts to care again.

“Very good Food, value for money”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 27, 2013

we went for a nice evening outing in December 2012 for a great dinner, the Staff welcomed us very friendly, took us to a nice clean table, and when the waiter could not answer my questions, about my special diet requests, he called the supervisor, who then went himself several times to the cook to ensure all is done as needed. The food was delicious and can only recommend to any fellow travelers.

“NEVER spend Valentine's Day here!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 14, 2013

So we went there to celebrate Valentines day. Here's how it went - Service was Terrible! it felt like we were in a market place!! the waiters were shouting all over the place, our orders were mixed up, the food took close to 1 hour to arrive - this is just the starter! on top of that you had to spend 5,000ksh even if your bill wasn't amounting to that! a little piece of information that the SHADY black eye pencil wearing lady at the front desk did not tell us because she was too busy trying to sell tables at whatever cost.

The quality of the food is always great. we visit Medi - junction almost every week BUT now we know NEVER to go there on special occasions like Valentines!! only on regular days
