This place is fantastic. When you walk into the restaurant it's like you walk into a different world, you can easily forget that you're in Kampala when you're having dinner at Il Patio. The food is really good, and waiters are professional. If you go there, please try the chocolate cake for desert, it's the best I've ever had. Melted... More

Great place for people that are into fine dining with a twist of life. Right in the heart of the city in an upscale neighborhood. The state house is just a few feet away, so its in a respectable environs.

Very refined dining. Very rich menu with loads of choices. Service may be a tard slow but it's worth the wait when it's delivered! The ambiance is generally calm and surreal.

I have been twice now and found it reliable and consistent. The choice of meals is excellent, reasonably priced, well portioned and arrived in a timely fashion. Also has a decent,... More

I happened to spend an evening out at Piato and the experience is memorable. The cool air and Well made dishes. I mostly loved the drum sticks that were so tasty. I will most definitely have to visit again and again.

The seafood spaghetti I ordered was nicely cooked, al dente and a spot-on flavoured sauce. Access to fresh seafood would be a plus but the challenges to this in a landlocked country are obvious.
