The place is not bad , and the food is ok, but is not definitely an Italian Restaurant. Too much garlic everywhere. We didn't try the pizza that looks good. The ambience is a mix of spanish and french look , the service good.

Love to go to this place when out of options or when I want to simply feel happy and relaxed. Go with your loved ones and have a great time. Regular Italian fair but love it all. Try Swahili Pizza - not Italian :-) - but amazing sea food pizza. If enjoying beer ask for spicy sausage. Love those too.... More

Good pizzas, and very tasty chicken wings, though disappointing steak. Serves some nice draft beers. Service friendly and efficient.

Very good place for good italian dishes, one can not go wrong. Recently they have added some swings and slides which keeps kids engaged and happy. Keep it up.

Just chanced on the place at Garden City Mall. Nice ambience - and attentive service. To top it the pizza, spaghetti. Ice cream burger was excellent with delicate tests. Catered for our vegetarian palate and final bill was not too bad either.

Great place for families with kids, the pizza are good. Other dishes not so good either ober salted or seasoned. However you will enjoy the location and ambience in the afternoon. Weekends are quite packed so expect some waiting time if you dont make a reservation.

Tucked away on the second floor of lavington curve, has a distinctive decor and Atmosphere to this Resturant which services Italian food with a Kenyan twist, friendly staff which are able to pair a good glass of wine to your selected dish. The view over looking the James gichuru road.

I Visited Mambo Italia at Garden City Mall along Thika Highway and it was really good. The furniture is original wood with an African feel. Food is very fresh and there is lots to choose from. The restaurant gets quite full, which is a good indication of good food. Pleasant waiters too!
