“Great pizza”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 22, 2014

A lovely Italian restaurant with a great courtyard for outside dining. The service is friendly and the pizza and calzone very good. I'll definitely be going back again.

“Fantastic homemade pasta - we go regularly”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2014

Osteria in Village is a hidden gem. It took me some time to discover this place, but I now go regularly. The homemade pastas are lovely, each meal starts with complimentary foccacia, and the staff are friendly and attentive. Nairobi is an odd place for restaurants. They run the gambit, but Osteria is by far the best Italian to be had in the city. Prices are reasonable, ambiance is good, and food is well prepared (and consistently so - a plus in this city!). Highly recommended.

“very good italian food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 29, 2014

Italian restaurants in foreign countries are sometimes hardly worth the definition of Italian restaurant. But this one IS italian. Good food, kind staff, good wine. Nice pizzas, good starters.
My favourite desert, Tiramisu was disappointing however. The rest of the meal was really vey good. Prices are European level.
Village Market is a bit of a maze (a nice maze though). So just ask one of the guards. There is ample parking available.

“Beef is divine”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2013

Love the food, its so yummy and full of flavor...amazing. It makes one appreciate italian food and not just the pizzas. Loved the wine selection too. Will definately be making numerous comebacks. For that beef, cooked in any technique, am game.

“Best Italian food in Kenya!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2013

Nice quiet place in a great location at the Village market.

Delicately decorated giving it a summery and open feel. Fantastic personalised wait staff.
Must try the wood fired pizzas and the Osteria special pasta!
