This is a great place for pizza in my top 3 in Nairobi after Pomodoro in the Village Market. It lacks service quality but the food is great. I recommend going at night.

The shopping center is not great, nor was this easy for me to find, but I was pleasantly surprised by the good and solid cooking and the spot-on Italian flavors. Will go back with my Chef husband.

Great Italian cuisine, made especially nice by the Chef/Owner. Tried shrimp salad - Very different from what I have had. Served with since Mayonnaise sauce. Ravioli stuffed with spinach and feta cheese was good. The bruschetta was good. Served with different toppings
