We remembered this restaurant from our previous visit about 15 yrs ago and always remembered the bruschetta was one of the best I'd had. So on our recent visit we had lunch here before flying out. It is an exceptional Italian restaurant both with food...More

I've been here on previous trips to Kenya. Food is consistently very good and service attentive. If it's warm enough take the stairs and sit on the balcony to watch the world go by. Recommended!

Best pizza place in town though costly. Didn't try other food but I liked even the serenity of the place and the service also.

I used to eat at Trattoria at least 1-2 times a week when working in Kenya in the early 1990s. Nice to see that it is still around, and serves the same good food. Portion size is still exorbitant. staff is attentive, some are still...More

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...More
