We heard so much about the sushis there that we were disappointed to have tasteless frozen sushis. The salmon sashimis had no taste and were still frozen in mouth. I had a stomach ache for hours after that... Although, the pizzas are absolutely delicious and...More

I have been there, a couple of times. The food is excellent and the people are really nice. Best to order for me is “RENO’s Pizza”. Looking forward to be there again in May :-)

It may not be Italian but the pizza from here isn't half bad. Thin crust, crispy pizza from the wood fired oven in the middle of Tanzania - give it a go

A lovely spot to grab a bite, lunch or dinner or just meet up for drinks or coffee and something sweet from their dessert bar. The Pizzas are also nice but my absolute favorite is the oven baked aubergine, just yum! Excellent service too!
