La Salumeria is my family's favorite for a nice dinner out, and even more often for pizza (thin crust and light) which is very fast. We love the ravioli w butter and sage, the pesto and the tagliata with arugula, plus the coconut gelato... While sometimes I wish there were more salads as an option, the food is straightforward and... More

I took family to La Salumeria recently and we all had a fabulous experience: great food, (whether meat, pasta or pizza), terrific wine and pacy and personable service throughout. This is a restaurant where quality and attention to detail comes naturally. A true Italian delight in Nairobi!

In a nice ambiance a good selection of Italian food is served. Wine is offered at reasonable prices. I can recommend the Gorgonzola ravioli. In de sweets department the tiramisu is great. As a garlic lover I enjoyed the garlic spread offered with the bread.

Located at Valley Arcade Mall in Lavington, just 1 kilometer from our house, this is I perfect place for a lunch or an early dinner. The pizzas are probably the best in Nairobi, very thin and with high quality ingredients. I especially love their tuna pizza. The pastas is good, but not exceptional. Sometimes they have imported buffalo mozzarella. Lovely.

An Italian restaurant is all about the food. You don't need fancy decor and plates etc. you need amazing food that is consistently good. And that might be in abundance in Italy but in NAIROBI there is truly one place - La Salumeria. And now under the new ownership it's even better. Their pizza's are better but if you are... More

Rather an odd place to find, nestled in the base of an apartment complex, La Salumeria has delicious food at very reasonable prices. Lovely staff make this a warm dining experience and you can also stock up for your own kitchen at the Italian supermarket on the other side of the building. Belissima!

We went there for a farewell dinner. The service was outstanding. For the food, I had the grilled parrot fish. First, I didn't know you can eat that fish as catching it is banned in our country. But the fish was amazing! Nice texture, great flavor and cooked to perfection. What else can you ask for. Oh, two of my... More

A very traditional Italian experience. Food is great and taste authentic. A good selection of imported Italian foods and wines. Always ask for the specials as they are usually the best thing available. The waiting staff are very friendly and make the experience enjoyable. I have been several times now and will keep coming back.
