I was pleasantly surprised when I was seated on the outdoor second-floor balcony to have such a quiet and calm spot to overlook the (not as nice) nearby business district. The menu was extensive, with many different categories of Italian food including pasta, pizza and meats. Bread was provided after we ordered, and our dinner portions were large. Definitely a...

Parking remains a problem with a lot of hustlers and glue sniffing women with children. Once inside the service and food is excellent. The asparagus was cooked to perfection and pizzas have amazing taste- unique. Chocolate mousse very chocolaty. Bill was modest.

It was a nice restaurant to sit outside up on second floor on the balcony. Able to see street life while having a quiet meal. Service was good and we even got bruchetta on the house as a nibble.

Having dined there three times in one week I would recommend the place for the food. There is a large and varied menu and everything I tried was well prepared and well presented. The staff are busy and sometimes inattentive and you don't see the same waiter twice, so don't expect much chat. But worth it for the food alone.

Nice place at down town Nairobi. Food and wines are good and well priced. A nice experience if you like the real Italian food.

Trattoria standards have dropped tremendously. Went for lunch twice and ordered different meals on each occasion containing fish. Terrible food and a ridiculous pre-requisite that you cannot order for less than Kshs 1,500 (USD 15) Trattoria is a no go zone for me

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
