A neighbourhood pizza/pasta restaurant set in Muthaiga Shopping Centre. Lots of choice from perennial favorites: spinach and ricotta ravioli, pizza Margarita and wines: Valpolicella and Chianti. Posters of Anita Ekberg stare back at you, augmenting the Italian ambiance.

This is a great place for pizza in my top 3 in Nairobi after Pomodoro in the Village Market. It lacks service quality but the food is great. I recommend going at night.
