The Trattoria


The Trattoria is found in the central business district of downtown Nairobi. It’s an old, established, Italian restaurant, which oozes charm and character.

  • Found right in the city centre just a short walk from the New Stanley Hotel, Trattoria is a firm favourite with many local business people and tourists alike. It’s hard not to like the busy, bustling atmosphere, friendly waiters and assortment of quiet nooks to share a secret encounter or quiet conversation. It has a bar – The Luna Lounge which shows sports events etc.
  • Owned and run by Gaetano Ruffo, this truly Italian restaurant has all the charm of real Italy – from it’s wonderful menu, to the large and extensive delicatessen counter selling real Italian cheeses, anti-pasta and cold meats. Trattoria has a vast selection of fine fines which are to be found down in the cellar. The cuisine is characterized by a feel of real home-cooked pasta and pizza dishes, salads, and anti-pasta to sophisticated, unusual and elaborate dishes so it’s easy to cater to all tastes.
  • The decor and ambience of Trattoria is always friendly, welcoming and warm. The jungle of plants surrounding the entrance, patio and upstairs balcony create a lovely feeling of intimacy and tropical excitement in this wonderful restaurant.
  • The Luna Lounge is found downstairs and is open for late nights and has a full bar, sports-screening, smoking and non smoking area.
