Good spot in Nairobi for family or couples dinner. It’s in a mall complex, with outdoor seating optional on the roof (2nd story). Good salad, pizza, pasta. We had a mushroom pasta that was yum.

I ordered for delivery. The pizza was good and the flavour combinations are original. Great ice cream too. A bit on the expensive side compared to other restaurants.

This place is ok for kids because of the playground close to the tables so you can eat and watch them play. However, except for a decent pizza, there is nothing Italian about it (I am Italian so I know..), any pasta sauce is so...More

Hi. The mushroom penne with grana, cream and roasted garlic may be the pasta you had (we can only take a guess) - its a good portion so perhaps this is why you found it heavy but our customers love it .... it remains the...More
