The food is good and staff friendly but one thing you cant use your credit card to pay or even Mpesa. at one time we had to be escorted to NIC ATM across to withdraw very hillarious.

Whereas the cuisine itself was pretty average, Trattoria's location and upstairs balcony tables overlooking the hubbub of the Nairobi's CBD was quite a revelation. The service was typical Kenyan - friendly, charming and efficient.

My friends and I decided to stop by here for lunch after work. I had boscaiola pizza with strawberry vanilla shake. The pizza was not delicious at all, it was salty. Just disappointing, I didn't even finish my meal. Our waiter Patrick was efficient but I don't think I'll come back anytime soon.

Don't go if you're in a hurry to eat. The food takes forever to come out. I thought it was a high-end Italian restaurant...the only high-end thing about it are the prices. And for some reason they don't accept credit cards! The food was alright, wasn't great. I was expecting more. The service isn't super either. I did like their... More

Came here for dinner chose to dine on the balcony. Very close to SarovaStanley no need to take a taxi. Very wide choice menu. Chose a simple pizza and was actually quite surprised it was wood fired. Fair prices for decent quality food.

I visited this place twice this month choosing the vegetarian options in the menu and it was delicius. The balcony has a nice atmosphere and the staffs are very friendly and prepared to meet your expectations. The salad bar could be improved, WiFi could be available, credit cards are not accepted. Overall a good experience and I would definitely return... More

I always prefer to sit on the "balcony" of the TRATTORIA, so that I can have a breeze, and overlook the boulevard below. I dined alone here in July 2015. I started with a Caesar's Salad, then had the delicious "Fettucini Trattoria" as my main course. The lemon sherbet ice cream made a perfect dessert, followed by an expresso! With... More

It's located in the central business district, easily accessible but no ample parking. It's an old restaurant known for its authentic Italian and blend of African/continental cuisine. The setting is still not updated and deco not so appealing. The risotto was not what I anticipated unfortunately but the steak was perfectly done. They need to revamp their cuisine and ambiance....
