If you come in a group they will add additional food items and drink items to your bill, happens every time and although I enjoy the music the rip off just gets annoying.

After the change of the management from Italian to Eritrean, this nice in the past place has lost everything. Still good place for drinks and music, but food is terrible, except maybe pica. In general - poor service, management and overpriced menu. I would not suggest this place.

This place has very good ugandan live band which makes everyone dance. Enjoyed looking at happy people and watching their happy performance. Beers are reasonably priced. Didn't try their food yet. Place looks alright in the night time.

Popped in to Gattomatto again out of Nostalgia. Once again management has changed hands. With it, went the customer service we used to know. Ordering lunch from the same menu of old, obviously the new chef was not familiar with stir fry cooking. The beef stir was so tough, over cooked and bouncing off my teeth. Worse still the Eritrean...

This place is excellent if you want to experience live entertainment in Kampala. I've been there on several occasions listening to various Jazz bands and every time has been an enjoyable evening. Seating arrangement is good and spacious, but limited. I advise to show up early to secure a good seat/table. Staff is very attentive and quick. Not every night... More

Nothing special beyond what is needed - easy ordering, reasonable wing time, eatable food and prompt payment of the bill. And it is quiet.

There is a great ambiance to the place, very dimly lit with candles and fairly lights. The service is attentive and excellent. Bands play Wednesday and Fridays I was told it's otherwise quiet. Chairs and tables are low, perhaps too low (coffee table height) for my liking for eating purposes. The food is basically good but the menu is not... More
