“Expensive!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2014

They had a nice & cosy restaurant at old street in westlands but now they opened at 9west (inside new building). Looks expensive but always clowded. You need to book in advance. Wine selections are good.

“good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2014

I have been here twice now and have enjoyed both meals -they have a very large menu with many options as well as specials. Quality of ingredients is good and food is tasty. Pretty expensive for Nairobi. This is not my go to place -but I definitely will go back and would recommend it to others.

“not worthy”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed November 22, 2013

the food is not bad, even if overprized; is the 2nd best restaurant in Nairobi, after Osteria... The pizza is better to leave it, is nothing to do with a pizza and very expensive

“An Affordable Italian in Nairobi”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2013

Ate here for the first time in September, and I have been back 3 times. Why? The food is consistently good, fresh, well cooked and well presented. Osso Bucco is great, and their seafood dishes are also very good. Sad to see no veal escalope, but guess hard to source in Nairobi.

Food prices are reasonable, but the wine list is pricey, and the prices for good wines exponential.

One act which both impressed me and really pleased me - I paid on my first visit by UK credit caed, but forgot to take card with bill. Realised the next day, rang them, and then confirmed they had my card safe and sound. Don't believe all the bad stories about Nairobi!
