I had a red snapper and pasta dish at the Gigiri branch of this restaurant. Maybe not the best choice this far from the ocean because I came down with some bowel movements in the middle of the night. It must be said that the service was very good.

This is a lovely place, and quiet for the location. Make sure to sit in the lovely garden, no matter what time of year. Many many options on food including vegetarian (perhaps too many!), and great service. Always a winner.

My wife and I love this place. Good selection of Italian dishes plus some really good pizza. We also like the atmosphere as we are able to sit inside or outside depending on the weather.

The food is great here, especially bread, pizza and lasagne. I think their pizza is the best in Nairobi. Excellent garden area for weekend relaxation with family and friends. The staff are very friendly and professional too.

The garden was gorgeous and I loved the sculptures. Truly beautiful. Service was good. The pizzas were well presented but was fairly tasteless needed to order extra garlic and Parmesan to give it a bit of flavour we had a Pescatora and Terra e Mare. The smoothies were delicious and not to filling. We've been to the Westlands branch on... More

Had lunch with my family on 27th August at Mediterraneo, Gigiri. We were welcomed warmly and had a choice of table as it was not very busy. The waiters were polite and attentive and their service was excellent. Great choice of menu and whatever we chose to eat was delicious and huge in portion size (great value). The ambiance of...

8 friends from 3 continents. Everyone loves pizza! Nice ambiance, pleasant staff and a metre length pizza. Plus salads and dessert for whoever wanted some. All very tasty and well presented. Everyone satisfied. Good selection of great wine, but be prepared to pay for that. Prices on the menu are by the glass. Beer more affordable. Security guards for car... More

My wife had the veal, which was very so-so. I had one of their chicken and pasta dishes which was pretty good. Our sons spaghetti was good too.
