“Nice location, average food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 5, 2015

The resto is nicely located in Westland. New, modern ambiance, nice garden.

Food just average: I ordered "tortellini del Plin" (very small, hand made stuffed pasta), and I got large 'tortelli' flooded with anonymous green sauce.... not bad, but not what I expected!

oh well, still rather good for a dinner out!

“Good pizza”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 17, 2014

We stopped here as a last minute pre-cinema treat and were pleasantly surprised. Our waiter was extremely friendly, and when he realised we had less than an hour before the cinema he made sure everything was very quick, from taking our order to delivering our bill. We shared a vegetarian pizza and really enjoyed it - the base was thin and crispy and the pesto tasty and fresh. The complimentary bread selection with garlic butter beforehand was a welcome addition too.

Given that it's a restaurant in one of the most up-market malls in town, the prices were pretty reasonable, especially given that the pizza was enough for us to share.

We'd definitely go back and try out some of the other dishes which looks generous and good when being served to other tables.

“Classy Italian in Nairobi”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 24, 2014

Our group of ten was seated on the upstairs veranda. Although the house was buzzing with waiters and other guests, the noise level was low enough that we could easily hear each other. Wait staff were gracious, although they either couldn't hear our orders or did not understand our American accents, so there were a few glitches, though the results were fine. On the other hand, it took over 45 minutes for our food to be served. Food was tasty and plentiful. The decor is properly Italian with lovely plaster and wood all around. I'd last dined in Nairobi 25 years ago; this is a happy improvement.

“Good selection of Italian dishes, so-so pizza”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2014

A nice location in The Junction mall, particularly the outside deck. A good selection of italian dishes, including some very nice salads and antipasti. If you are looking for pizza, you can do much better elsewhere.
