La Salumeria has been here for more than a decade. Fortunately, they have never gone for radical changes other than improve on service and what they bring at table....nonetheless, this still remains one of the coziest place to have a nice meal and catch up with a friend. I was there this week and decided to try the tagliata......just amazing!!!

My fiancé and I just recently moved to Valley Arcade and stumbled upon this gem as we were exploring the neighborhood. The only reason I haven't given this place 5 stars is because I saw a critter in the kitchen area that made me almost decide to leave before we ordered. However, I'm glad that I stayed as the food,... More

I went there several times, was never disappointed. Excellent pizza and pasta, good service and overall setting. I love to go there and will definitely go back as soon as I can.

The food and service are excellent and this is a nice, though not cheap, option for a dinner out. Typical Italian fare, with various local and imported ingredients. Our only real criticism is that the portion sizes were a little stingy - we were letting wanting more; which is indicative of how good the food is I guess! Worth going... More

La Salumeria is a firm local favourite, we visit every week or two. Great pasta dishes, relaxed atmosphere, good service and ok pizza (not Nairobi's best, but still good).

I've been a regular for past 10 years. Hoping my experience last night will be a one off. The shrimp cocktail was stale so was the beef and chicken porcini. All veges were fresh but the same cannot be said of the French beans.

My raviolli was very tasty, would have been tastier with some decent amount of slices of prosciutto ham. The other dish was lemon chicken with chips. Looked quite insipid on the plate. No veg.Average. The prawn cocktail comprised of the smallest prawns I have ever seen, in fact they tasted like crayfish, in some kind of tasteless sauce, some huge lettuce leaves,... More

In my pursuit to find authentic, delicious italian food, made my effort to come a step closer with La Salumeria. The cuisine was delicious, prepared with fresh ingredients. I ordered Fresh salad & soup for starters followed by Pasta & Pizza. I enjoyed it thoroughly. The chilled italian wine as great too. The restaurant is not too expensive. I'll definitely... More
