“Little Italy”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 7, 2013

Simply the cutest little Italian restaurant. The place is quiet and cosy, the service is friendly and the food...oh, the food. The owner may seem cold, but he is a nice guy - just takes a little getting used to. It is easily my favourite place in Nairobi. The location can be a little deceiving, but once you are in there, you get lost in the ambiance.

If you are going in the evening, I suggest that you call and make a reservation.

“best pizza ever”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2013

I love La Salumeria pizza, but the other food is great too. The ambiance is very low keyed and also lovely, and the waiters are helpful and friendly. Highly recommended.

“great Italian food by an Italian”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2012

The food is good, the ambience is quiet, nice and cosy. There is ample parking at the front of the Valley Arcade shopping centre (not the back where the restaurant is actually located0

“Late Night Joy.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2012

Having a great night in Nairobi,decided to get some late dinner at this old favourite.Was busy but got a table inside and service was quick and personal from the owner himself.Steak,pasta and pizzas were the order of the night.And they even managed to ensure a dish was gluten free for one of our party.The food was exceptional though service was a tad slow though it was late and almost closing time when we left.The atmosphere inside is certainly cosy for a cold Nairobi night and the food is certainly authentic.A great warm place to enjoy a lovely cosy evening,perhaps not for large parties or more active people.Certainly ticks the boxes for a return visit.
