“good restaurant”
Reviewed August 16, 2013

If you want to eat a good Italian food in Nairobi, I recommend the Tratoria. Beautiful environment as well as excellent cuisine. Highly recommended

“You can't survive on your reputation if you can't cook a pizza...”
Reviewed August 10, 2013 via mobile

I've been here many times before, always for lunch and always had good (if a little over-priced) food. Maybe it was the influence of the Italian owner who strolls along the tables that was missing tonight.

The atmosphere was tranquil and the 1st floor balcony I'd always a nice lift from the haraka of Nairobi. This place had been around for a long time and probably won't go away soon, BUT the reviews are clear... This place one WAS great, but now is just over priced.

My order was simple. Just a pizza of the menu and a request for some hot oil our diced hot peppers and a beer. The beer was cold, which was good. The test was bad. The dough to the pizza was very obviously not cooked. Chewy in the way that bubble gum is chewy. I informed the waiter at the same time I reminded him to bring the hot oil. He apologized for the uncooked pizza but still forgot the hot oil. I was also charged full, bloated price.

I don't need to come back , there are plenty of new more interesting pizza places in Nairobi. Perhaps the pastas are better, but if you can't do pizza, what can you do?

“Overrated”
Reviewed July 30, 2013

The food is not bad, good wine, but the quality price rate is bad. Too expensive for the quality that they offer. The service was right and enjoyed the dinner in the balcony which was quite and relaxed (note: it was a Sunday night with few people).

“Good pizza, but pricey”
Reviewed July 18, 2013

The location in downtown is nice, and you can sit on the balcony to look over the Nairobi streetscape. Pizza was pretty delicious, maybe the best in Nairobi (better than Osteria, but a bit pricier). Great service and an extensive menu.
