Very popular Italian restaurant, find it crowded most of the time, specially during dinner. Out door is nice to sit during dinner, nice quite ambience, but bit dark. Good tasting food. Service bit slow but may enjoy if you are leisurely having the dinner.

Perfect night out in Nairobi - go for the home made pasta or pizza and house wine. Excellent value and very friendly service. Love the atmosphere and tiramisu topped it off!

The pizzas and tiramisu are good but the rest of the food is rather bland. Steaks are mostly over-cooked. Side dishes are almost canteen type. Among the positives, the service is extremely friendly and the setting is nice.
