Just the Right Food

About Trattoria

Trattoria was born from a dream of Mr Ruffo. Starting off as a small coffee shop, trattoria slowly grew.  Overwhelmed with work, he convinced his mother, Mama Ruffo to come over from Rome to help him in the kitchen whilst he managed the front of the house. Thinking she would come for only a few months, she stayed for 20 years until she finally  decided to go back to Italy well into her 80’s to pass her retirement.

Vast Italian Menu

Our vast menu offers typical Italian antipasti, homemade fresh pasta, pizza or delicious seafood, chargrill and to end with some homemade gelato or Italian patisseries. We also have a special menu that changes everyday based on what’s fresh at the market.

Guest Reviews

  • Amazing freshly cooked pasta, on maybe the most extensive Italian menu in town. Conveniently located right in downtown Nairobi. They also serve seafood, and have a large wine list. Not cheap though. They take online reservations.

    Nomadic by Nature
  • The menu, organized by category, and complemented with corresponding savory sauces, guides diners to steakhouse bliss. Definitely the best choice!

    Steakhouse bliss
  • Whether you’re looking for the perfect finish to an epic Italian meal or just something to satisfy your sweet tooth on a lazy Sunday afternoon, Trattoria’s Tiramisu is one of those rare desserts that with every bite, a different emotion overcomes your body – hands down, the best Tiramisu in Nairobi.
