Fodor's Expert Review Mediterraneo

$$$ Entebbe Italian Fodor's Choice

Restauranteur Stefano Ginetti has created a stylish addition to his similarly monikered Nairobi eateries: from its location within the grounds of Villa Kololo (a quirky boutique hotel), Kampala's Mediterraneo serves up world-class Italian food to a fashionable crowd. Tiered hardwood decks encircle a leafy courtyard, creating intimate spaces decorated with vintage bric-a-brac. An expert kitchen team turns out exquisitely simple food using fresh local produce and specialist ingredients, flown in where necessary. The Breseola della Valtellina is the genuine article; veal Scallopine is served with real Fontana cheese; and Aragosta all Griglia uses rock lobster from the Kenyan coast. The pasta in their ravioli, agnolotti, or pappardelle dishes is made from scratch; and the wood-fired pizzas taste just like Naples. A Chef's Special menu is switched up regularly, keeping things fresh; and the well-curated wine list includes French, South African, and (of course) Italian labels.
