I usually dine in; but found out that they have free delivery service! Live music in Friday, so you'll need to book a table. Great food, good price here.

I am a big fan of Italian food so I try to find good Italian restaurants wherever I go but that isn't the easiest of things to find. Osteria, like so many others, is especially notable for its nice ambiance and service. I had a decently tasting Penne Pesto and my friend had Ravioli that he seemed to enjoy as... More

I took some friends for a quick lunch. It was terrible. The place is dirty-- the linen, cutlery, crockery and waiters. Very surprised that such a restaurant can be located in such a nice mall. I think it was once a nice place judging by the wooden ceiling, etc but it has lost it. Before hoing there i went to... More

The pizza was really good, the service was quick and good. The place is normal. I could recommend it everyone.

The food was nice, and makes a nice change if you've been stuck in a hotel. The prices seemed on the expensive side, and then you realise they've left taxes off. The bill for myself dining alone was KSH 3277 (prawn cocktail, carbonara, mousse, and a coke). Bit steep for Nairobi!

The patio was a quaint and charming spot. Service was good tho a bit slow. Their complimentary focaccia covered in fresh tomatoes was a great starter. We all chose the prix fix meal. It was very reasonably priced and included fresh pasta then chicken in a creamy garlic sauce followed with a small dessert cake. We left happily stuffed😁

Imagine this- rainy season in Nairobi, stroll from Tribe hotel into the enclosed open space of Gigiri Osteria with superb Italian food and great wine... It was a late lunch, quiet afternoon and great couple of hours with pizza and risotto; service is very friendly and professional; it is kind of a place that you visit again and again and... More

Staying at the Tribe hotel next door, we went for a dinner with colleagues and were pleasantly surprised by the nice atmosphere and decor. The food and wine menu were varied. We had lamb, spaghetti gamberi and gnocchi, accompanied with a litter of house red. Service was courteous, food delicious and the house wine very good. Unlike some other places... More

I have eaten at this restaurant three times now. I will be back. Their lunch special was only 10 dollars when I ate there and I was so full I did not even eat supper that evening. Wonderful appetizers, entree and dessert included. I was amazed at the value and the service. The decor is pleasant and the food prompt.... More
