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

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.

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...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...More
