There was no power, the staff told us, but no problem .... We live here, we know this happens - a lot :) We were amazed/surprised that they still managed to serve us a good meal. For all other things, they fell terribly short. When there is no power, create an atmosphere for your customers: candles, candles, and more candles.... More

We went here for lunch on a Saturday afternoon and the place was pretty deserted. The waitress was pretty prompt in the service and took our order, drinks first .. And meals order after a few minutes , just to come back and say we have no vodka .. Which was fine but rather odd .. Then comes back after... More

We went for lunch. Pretty average to say the least. Food was ok. Wasn't feeling the atmosphere. The air conditioning wasn't working properly.

Very pleasant garden setting, and attentive waitron service. Food service a bit slow, and food of reasonable quality but not value for money. Wine prices are ridiculous. Won't rush back!

After a great experience in Talisman in Karen, we had heard that Osteria di Chianti (great place in Nairobi) had a sister restaurant in Karen. When we finally found it, it turned out they had sold it to other Italians who changed the name into "Eataly" ...bad start. The setting is beautiful, an old colonial country house in park-like surroundings,... More

New name, new management, same menu. We love their appetizer (flatbread with tomatoes). Their fishsoup is still too salty, there could be more prawns in the prawncocktail, but this is easily the best pizza we ate outside of Italy. I don't mind being the only guest on a Sunday evening, but this restaurant deserves better.

The setting in the garden with a candle lit dinner is the most romantic restaurant around Karen area! The food may be over-priced and is not worth the quantity. I loved the setting in the forest !

I visited this place that my family and I loved so much. To our surprise ir changed and its under new management. When we saw the sign "Eataly Italian restaurant" we were huh? But tried it anyway. Portions were small but the prices were the same. Every one even my 5 year old finished his meal broccoli gorgonzola. There's no... More

Osteria is our regular Friday night haunt and has been so for 4 years. If you like Italian then this is the place. Great food reasonably priced, friendly atmosphere and a wonderful open fire. Outside play area with a pool for the kids and a superb Sunday lunch venue. The staff are brilliant! Only one caution, we believe it (only... More
