The bread with tomatoes served while you wait is exquisite - so now imagine the main food! Great pasta options made to the highest quality. Meat offering is fabulous as well

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.

The food here is always of super quality. The pesto is great and the best part if the free tomato focaccia!
