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

The ambiance is good. Sitting next to fire is good at night. Portions are tasty but small. Taxes are not inclusive so bill can higher than what you think.

There are many lunch options in this part of town but Osteria is a winner for its great pizza and excellent service. I've been here for dinner too and always leave happy - you will too!

I had 3 wonderful scoops of ice cream on a warm Nairobi day for 200/- per scoop. A bit pricey but good. The area badly needs a facelift. Didn't eat in the restaurant but many people are coming and going...must be good!

This restaurant is a hidden little gem. Has a lovely outdoor area with a great atmosphere. the night we went there was a local jazz band playing. The food was very good and the prices are very reasonable. Will no doubt become a regular for us.

We decided to try this restaurant as it's close to our apartment, although being Italian I was slightly sceptical from the beginning. The atmosphere is very nice, and we were welcomed by a complimentary starter of pizza base topped with fresh tomato. A promising start, but that's about it. We ordered a plate of Amatriciana which turned out to be... More

Excellent ambiance courteous and attentive service. Good selection of traditional Italian cuisine. Priced a bit on higher side and need to speed up the service. I guess the food makes up. Good place to enjoy your wine and pasta. Must visit

What was once a cosy, quaint and authentic Tuscan Trattoria has now been reduced to a mediocre restaurant that seems to think it is a nightclub! We wanted to enjoy some good Italian cuisine with family and hadn't been here in a few weeks. Having always had a great experience in the past we looked forward to a nice evening... 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.
