Great Pizza

I recommend their T-bone steak alongside their pizza. Quite the place to while a random afternoon away.

The food in L'Arena is great. I frequent the place. They have great authentic italian pizza (they were oven baked before it was fashionable), great steak and a great wine collection. The ambience is also great, you don't notice time passing by.

Recommended by a colleague at work, I was surprised that a good Italian restaurant even existed in the location. The restaurant's decor is basic, but acceptable. It is in a quiet compound, just off one if Nairobi's major roads, Ngong Road. Service is OK, but could improve (speed of response really, the people there are however very pleasant, accomodating and... More

Okay firstly, the only draw back for this place is that there is NO sign board on the main road (Ngong Road). L'Arena is located on your right hand side on Ngong road if you are driving from Nakumatt Junction sides and the left side if you are coming from Karen. They are located in a place called Shalom House.... More

This is one of those places, that you have to know where it is, being nestled just off Ngong Road in Shalom House. The staff are always friendly and they do the most amazing pizzas. We have also had a number of great steaks and pasta here, so definitely recommended. Its a hidden gem.

Hands down, the best pizza in Nairobi. Great garden for hanging out with friends and family. Bar service. Good steaks and Italian food in addition to the pizza. Try the Four Cheese pizza. It's magnificent! To find it, it is off Ngong Road, about 0.5 km past Junction, going towards Karen. Look for a sign on the right hand side... More
