La Terrazza Restaurant, located on the fourth floor of Greenhouse Mall, Ngong Road, Nairobi, has an art gallery on the ground floor and a bar and terrace restaurant with a view on the top floor.
Upon entry, guests are welcomed by alluring pieces of art hanging on their walls. I couldn’t help but spend a few minutes basking in the glory of the diverse beauty of African women on display.
White table linens, white curtains, and red roses spread on all tables with a big bunch at their open bar give this restaurant a modern, fresh, and stunning touch. I’m not sure whether the roses were simply there for the day or if they were a regular thing, but it was an appealing detail.
I would have ordered for a glass of water given the time we visited the restaurant but then I remembered the quote: “Life is unpredictable, never postpone the Aperol spritz you can drink today.” Needless to say, I went for that. The bar man stirred for me this classic Italian cocktail and I was pleased it did not taste like kids vitamins.
My son and I savored gorgeously light and pillowy gnocchi coated in luscious tomato sauce and a classic margherita pizza. Both were delicious and authentic, true Italian taste.
Apart from the great food and stunning ambiance, the service was friendly. We felt well taken care of, which made our mummy and son pizza date an exceptional experience. We hope to treat ourselves to another sumptuous Italian meal at La Terrazza yet again before heading back to the Philippines.
