“Like I was back in Florence”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 January 2012

I studied in Florence in college. When we ate at Osteria, I felt like I was back in the old country! Great food and ambiance.

“An excellent & typical Italian Restaurant at Village Market, Nairobi”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 November 2011

The owner is Italian - the food is genuinely excellent - the atmosphere equals the hospitality - this is a popular retreat for anybody who appreciates good Italian cuisine. We don't tend to eat out for the sake of it and Gigiri is our popular haunt because we feel welcome, pampered and enjoy our meal each and every time we go there. Not once have we been disappointed and we feel as though we're sitting at home in the kitchen. So tucked away in the corner of Village Market is an authentic "hot spot' to savour and relax in and, incidentally, don't miss the music nights on Saturdays but perhaps its best to book beforehand. Buon appetito!
