We visited the Osteria restaurant in the evening, and parked on-site in guarded parking area. We chose a table in the extensive outdoor area with soft lighting and candles on all tables. Its a lovely setting and Nairobi's gentle weather that makes outdoor dining so easy is a great feature of the city. The staff are attentive and helpful. We... More

Owned and run by Italians. Love this place, food, ambience, service etc all. But the one thing I must recommended highly is their Tiramisu - no one makes it better.

My wife and I had dinner at this restaurant this month. The staff were very friendly and attentive. Great and diverse clients. Good wine although it took time to get it. We chose steaks for main food. Very nice to see the steaks grilled in the open fire. Quality of meat and grilling could be better but the good service... More

Nice environment, nice service. But the food, TERRIBLE. Lasagne sucks, pizza hard. We thought desert would save the night, but no, same terrible.

Over priced, overvalued, normal service, the staff is doing the best that they can, but the Managers are more interested of personal ego and show off with nice looking girls. Food on the average, but the place is dirty, and l do not recommend anyone to visit this Restaurant..

Very slow service, had to remind several times the waiter to take an order. Second round of drinks never came. Over cooked pasta. Place might want to look like an Italian restaurant, but it has to improve overall service.

My husband and I decided to go to Osteria because it's very close to our apartment. The first thing we noticed is that all the prices on the menu were exclusive of tax - that is the first time we've seen that practice in Nairobi. We each ordered a ravioli dish - but I do not understand how they expect... More

My friend actually suggested the place, I'd never been before due to the constant complaints by family members that the food was blunt. On the contrary i enjoyed my steak and mashed potatoes, there was also a live band playing which was quiet soothing. Only complaint i have is that service was slow. It took us almost 20 minutes to...

Very welcoming service and a nice relaxed atmosphere with seating inside and on the terrace outside. The menu is extensive with the usual selection of pasta, pizza, meats and fish. The staff were very accommodating and arranged for a great sharing platter of antipasti to start. The house wine was good too and although slightly on the pricey side our... More

Osteria provides the best Italian food in Nairobi. In addition to their stunning chain of restaurants, Osteria also delivers to locations in Nairobi. The launch of Osteria takeaway in the city has received a warm welcome. The Osteria del Chianti restaurant menu is by many considered the best Italian in the region. With the launch of Osteria Warwick in Gigiri this year, Osteria now offers Sushi and Teppanyaki, arguably some of the the best Japanese food in the country. Visit us today for a slice of Italy.
