Visited Osteria for a quick weekday lunch. Service is always efficient and friendly. Ordered one lunch special (a 3 course meal at Ksh1200 is great value) and a seafood salad. All the dishes were spectacular. I love the consistency of Osteria. Is it bad that...More

Several local residents recommended Osteria Gigiri, and our group was not disappointed. They offer an extensive menu of Italian favorites, and the house-made pastas were excellent. For being outside of Italy, the meal tasted pretty authentic! They also have a nice wine list.

Love the bruschetta they give as soon as you sit down! Been here about 5 times and each time the food is a solid 10 on 10. Try the chicken in pepper sauce and the primavera risotto. Pizzas are extremely good too!

Tried the Osteria again and was convinced once more that there a better Italian restaurants in Nairobi. The pizza dough is too mellow and crumbly, the Greek salad was sub-standard and so was the beef steak with pepper sauce. Too expensive for what you get.
