“Where's the mozzarella ?”
Reviewed April 30, 2014 via mobile

Asked for a margherita pizza and got a standard cheese pizza instead. Mild cheddar substituted for mozzarella and tomato sauce instead of real tomatoes (this Kenya people !!! Fresh produce is not that pricey) with flecks of basil. Should be ashamed to call it Italian if the simplest, tastiest pizza cannot be put together correctly.

“Surprisingly good Italian in Kenya”
Reviewed March 9, 2014

First night in Kenya and the well reviewed local places were closed on Saturday. This was a local alternative that was open. As it was the week end the seating was wide open and service was very good as there were probably 2x as many staff as patrons.
The portion sizes were quite generous and the options quite diverse. Overall a very good experience.

“Nice setting and good quality”
Reviewed February 20, 2014

Italian restaurant located within the Nairobi Junction shopping mall. It has a very nice and cosy setting. We have been there twice, caesar salad is very well done and seafood spaghetti with tomato sauce is delicious, with lobster tail in the shell... Portions are quite sizeable. Restaurant has two levels and we have preference for the upper floor which is open but protected from the elements. Dishes are reasonably priced. Waiter service is very efficient and pleasant.

“packet macaroni and cheese!!!”
Reviewed February 15, 2014 via mobile

Service was ok, main dish of penne with gorgonzola and riccola was terrible. Truly just overpriced packet mac and cheese. Felt ill afterwards.
Really dissapointed as this is where we normally go for our anniversary. Never again.

“Beautiful place and intimate for diner!”
Reviewed February 14, 2014

I love this Italian restaurant so much.It's intimate especially during diner.I love the theme inside the restaurant,the different types of old wines displayed about.Their foods come in bulk and i'd advise one to go on an empty stomach so that you can enjoy the food.Their salads are just Out of This World...Delicious.Their desserts too are quiet sweet and you can order one and share.Everything in Mediterraneo is Just Awesome!!
