“Excellent Italian Cuisine”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2013

They have the most amazing Pizzas and Raviolis - simply melt in your mouth.

Ambience is very good and staff very friendly - minor complain would be manager does not like to hear criticism of their food (only had that issue once tho)

“Over-priced”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2013

Pizza was average at best. Wine very over priced and the main courses were disappointing. Starters were not bad but Foccacia bread was just pizza base only. Waiter spilt oil all over one of the party and the owner's attitude was far from helpful. Give it a miss better italian places in Nairobi.

“Lovely Italian Restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

Very nice Italian restaurant with an indoor/outdoor seating. The owner/chef gives his personal attention to all their patrons. Normally all Italians are full of life and that's why this place is very famous.

“Really good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2013

It is one of the better restaurants in Nairobi. I enjoy the location and ambiance. At dinner, there is safe and ample parking.

Very good food. Good wine menu.

“My "go to" restaurant in Nairobi”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2013

I absolutely love this restaurant and have been looking forward to having an opportunity of reviewing it on TripAdvisor. The restaurant is a bit out of the way and, at times, I'm thankful for this.

Huge menu, great specials, super pizza, magnificent pasta dishes, wonderful wine selection, superb service -- what more can you ask for?

I've been to this restaurant on a number of occasions and I've never had a bad meal here. My favourite dish is their Lasagne Mare: great noodles, plenty of seafood and not too salty. Excellent!! Great pizza menu (which can be ordered for take out).

You gotta try this place!
