I have been to this restaurant a number of times and have never had a bad meal. There is a choice of inside and outside seating in pleasant surroundings. The service is good and the food fantastic. There is a wide choice of dishes available and the portions are generous. I would recommend this place for couples, families or business.

Usually very good food but on recent visits there seems to have been a change in the quality of the food. Feels like a change of chief or policy...Staff always excellent and lovely surroundings very pleasant atmosphere.

Good selection of pizzas and pastas. Friendly staff and good quality food. A tad pricey though but attracts lots of expat customers from UN.

On arrival they tell us that the offer for the Nairobi Restaurant Week is over (it includes normally 1 Feb) because they don't have the ingredients. So we... More

Definitely the best quality for my taste, large selection and real Italian taste, not with funny spices or adapted food, only the real Italian food and this makes it for me the Best Italian restaurant in Nairobi.
