Nice environment, nice service. But the food, TERRIBLE. Lasagne sucks, pizza hard. We thought desert would save the night, but no, same terrible.

Over priced, overvalued, normal service, the staff is doing the best that they can, but the Managers are more interested of personal ego and show off with nice looking girls. Food on the average, but the place is dirty, and l do not recommend anyone to visit this Restaurant..

Very slow service, had to remind several times the waiter to take an order. Second round of drinks never came. Over cooked pasta. Place might want to look like an Italian restaurant, but it has to improve overall service.

My husband and I decided to go to Osteria because it's very close to our apartment. The first thing we noticed is that all the prices on the menu were exclusive of tax - that is the first time we've seen that practice in Nairobi. We each ordered a ravioli dish - but I do not understand how they expect... More

My friend actually suggested the place, I'd never been before due to the constant complaints by family members that the food was blunt. On the contrary i enjoyed my steak and mashed potatoes, there was also a live band playing which was quiet soothing. Only complaint i have is that service was slow. It took us almost 20 minutes to...

Very welcoming service and a nice relaxed atmosphere with seating inside and on the terrace outside. The menu is extensive with the usual selection of pasta, pizza, meats and fish. The staff were very accommodating and arranged for a great sharing platter of antipasti to start. The house wine was good too and although slightly on the pricey side our... More

The ambiance is good. Sitting next to fire is good at night. Portions are tasty but small. Taxes are not inclusive so bill can higher than what you think.

There are many lunch options in this part of town but Osteria is a winner for its great pizza and excellent service. I've been here for dinner too and always leave happy - you will too!

I had 3 wonderful scoops of ice cream on a warm Nairobi day for 200/- per scoop. A bit pricey but good. The area badly needs a facelift. Didn't eat in the restaurant but many people are coming and going...must be good!

This restaurant is a hidden little gem. Has a lovely outdoor area with a great atmosphere. the night we went there was a local jazz band playing. The food was very good and the prices are very reasonable. Will no doubt become a regular for us.
