Osteria was an idea of Maurizio Corti spurned to create an atmosphere reminiscent of Italy in the fastest growing city within the hub of East Africa. The choice to do business in Nairobi was due to it being a unique metropolis with an allure that is difficult to resist, here people of different walks of life come, go and stay. The challenge taken on by the Chief executive officer was that he believed in the nature of the product he could offer and that the clients would believe in them too especially if he never compromised on the quality.
With this in mind the Osteria Del Chianti on lenana road was the first such initiative to provide a great atmosphere, prompt service, high quality of food.
The restaurant was the pioneer in the provision of the most exotic and sought after wines for its clientele in Nairobi. The local and international community immediately welcomed Osteria del Chianti and to this rings true as everyday clients come calling for the taste of Italian cuisine and the finest wine as well as the highest quality Italian home-made ice-cream from our gelati.
Since its inception, our clients desired a bar or entertainment venue and with this looming gap Club Casablanca was opened in June 2004 next door to Osteria Del Chianti.
It is styled specifically with its vibrant decor and trendy Moroccan atmosphere and to date it still enjoys high ratings. As the company enjoyed success, growth came calling and several restaurants under the Osteria group sprang up. This is Acapulco restaurant on muthithi road in westlands in the year 2006 and in the same year Tangeri restaurant was launched in the coastal town of Malindi. Two years later Osteria Gigiri was opened at the village market and Osteria Karen at windy ridge lane in the Karen area. Then we opened the restaurant Osteria United Nation, and Osteria City Center. Two years ago, we believed in Malindi and we opened Osteria in Malindi town, this year we opened the restaurant Osteria Beach House on the beautiful beach of Malindi.
In the year 2011, for clients who required rest and recreation osteria holidays and safaris limited was launched. The travel company is a step away from the main restaurant at lenana road. As one of the leading and reliable destination management companies in East Africa we arrange all aspects of travel in bound and out bound.
