We were recommended this place by the staff at our hotel and wasn't dissapointed. Although I have had better Italian food and better food in general, I tempered my expectations before arriving. Service was pretty slow, especially considering there may have only been 3 other couples in the restaurant. But the food was well-prepared and plentiful. They seated us on... More

I ate here for lunch while in Nairobi for work with a group of people. Our table for six on the second story balcony was excellent and the noise level was low enough where we could easily converse. I had a fettuccine with a sauce made with gorgonzola. It had just enough spice to make it interesting. A little small... More

I went to the restaurant new years eve after hiking and being on the road for Hours. I was too hungry to think so I asked them to suggest something quick and it was seafood pasta in red wine sauce. I loved the balcony view it was nice in the evening, although the restaurant looked like an old Italian restaurant... More

I used to regular this place over a couple of decades ago and loved it. Decided to go for a lunch the day before yesterday and boy, was I disappointed!! The standards have drastically dropped. The food no longer tastes Italian. Its like Italian food made for the Kenyan palate, highly unoriginal. Then the biggest surprise of all............they don't accept... More

Great location, generous portions and yummy food.. Customer service is okay depending on how you look like.. HOWEVER!!!! I found hair on my food, I ordered for wine, I couldn't get a proper wine glass when I asked why they said because all their glasses are broken.. Really?!!!! Oh! And after you are done eating you can't pay with any... More

The dishes are not cheap but portions are generous. I started with salmon carpaccio- that was a meal in itself. The Mafioso Pizza for my main was a bit disappointing- I think the mafioso stole most of the toppings that were supposed to be on it. The base was very good! Overall it was a good experience. Try for seats... More

This felt like pretty authentic and superb quality food. The ambiance and service was reasonable, the food didn't take too long. I found it pretty pricey, but not out of keeping with many of the Nairobi restaurants.

It continues to be a first class restaurant which i no been frequenting for many years. The food is very good and carters for all palates including vegetarians. The service and portions of food are very good. The owner is all ways presents observing quietly but never intrusive. In spite of its location as parking can be a problem some... More

Worst experience ever! I had been a while since i had been to Trattoria so I decided to go there tonight. Arrived about 8:30hrs and was joined by a friend a few minutes later. I was drinking the Dawa and I asked for some hot water but I had to ask 3waiters before it finally came. This was unlike them... More
