“Great place to eat and relax.”
Reviewed January 8, 2013

The most recent time i went to Osteria, this review i wrote on facebook still stands so i figured i'd share it here too;

One of the great ITALIAN RESTAURANTs to go to in Nairobi has to be Osteria del Chianti on Lenana Road. Now this is is an old favourite of mine that keeps me going back for more reasons that just hunger and a taste for foreign food.They cook great meals to begin with, and in decent portions too! The menu selection's wide enough for you to try a whole bunch of stuff and they serve pretty good house wine if you're stuck on what to choose.

The ambiance? Warm and friendly - in fact, a tad cosy i might say. Service is polite, and decently dressed so ladies', you don't have to worry about that inappropriately dressed waitress on that special date (if you know what i mean! ;-) unless they've suddenly changed that!...lol).Thankfully they don't hover too much but are available to cater to you.

Prices - be prepared to spend some good money but they're not through the roof. It's a good place to go on a date or be with family or close friends because of the intimate settings, and with the buzz in the room on a full night, you'll be comfortable talking about absolutely anything! Bottom line - just be comfortable or get comfortable with whomever you're with...good company makes for most of the fun you pay for wherever you go!!

Happy eating!

“Have gone twice in one week - good value for Nairobi”
Reviewed December 7, 2012

Very welcoming. The owner is super friendly and makes you feel at home. I thought the value was decent for Nairobi and love their tiramisu. The beef carpaccio was spot on and very enjoyable. Grilled fish dishes - fresh and affordable. Wine is expensive but good variety for bottles - limited choice for wine by the glass.

Only restaurant we have found besides our hotel that has a high chair. Truly welcomes children which is a God send when you are staying here for 3 weeks.

Nice Ambiance, friendly staff and very comfortable. Pleasantly surprised to find such a good Italian restaurant here.

“Nice garden setting in the city”

Excellent food and service. Seating in the garden patio area is enjoyable on a warm bright afternoon. Would visit again when visiting relations in Kenya next time.
