I and my wife, both caucasians, took a local friend couple here to thank them for their hospitality during out stay in Kampala. It turned out to be a very disagreeable experience, and for me it ruined the final day of our otherwise wonderful two-week visit to Uganda. The staff at first were very attentive. However, all the waiters are... More

We had an amazing dinner here! The atmosphere was very warm and romantic with candlelight surrounding. Foods taste good with nice decoration. Beside, the waiter asked for tip directly which isn't very polite, we would do it definitely without being asked. Hopefully you will improve it to be better! Cheers

My fiancee and I went to Mediterraneo for dinner - the house wine is very good, the service was on point and we enjoyed our food. Would definitely recommend to anyone looking for Italian in Kampala!

You may be surprised to find such a nice Italian restaurant in Africa, at least I was. The staff was very welcoming and attentive for our group of 13. Everyone found something from a quite wide menu list. I had fried mozzarella as a starter and tilapia (local fish) as a main course. Both excellent choices. Prices were reasonable, good... More

Pretty bold statement, but it is true! This restaurant has awesome dishes and desserts. Service is very good. Any time that I am in Kampala this is where I eat. My most recent visit, I ordered the t-bone steak. I was surprised to receive a steak that was 2 inches thick. For the price, it was very good.

Very nice and cozy setting on a huge terrace. Large selection of Italian food. The avocado/scampi salad was excellent and the pizza very good. Perfect setting for a casual dinner with friends.

Our group of 8 had a wonderful evening at Mediterraneo. The service was outstanding! We enjoyed appetizers, soups, pasta, steaks---all very good with wonderful wines as well. The ambience is outstanding---as nice a restaurant as you would find anywhere in the world. When in Kampala make a point to go. I do not think you will be disappointed!

Consistently good italian food at Mediterraneo and best pizza in town. Service is attentive and the manager is always around. The owner is also often present making sure that everybody is on his toes. They have some 10 dishes that change regularly so even if you eat there frequently you can always find something new to try. Central location and... More

I lived the food and the guest service. My guests loved the restaurant too and enjoyed the meal. The only worry is the parking that's a but if a tricky maneuver. Hope to go back again soon.

You are received by a staff, well dressed and welcoming. Its better you make a reservation as this will ensure your space availability and suitability for occasion (from work mate dinner to romantic dinner). But even without a reservation, a suitable place will be found for you. the food is on point, the wine...unmatched.

Thank DMAtuhe
