Zuane Trattoria & Pizzeria

Italian in Dar es Salaam

With its luxuriant garden setting this Italian trattoria housed in an old colonial villa is one of Dar's most atmospheric dining options. The menu features classics such as wood-fired pizzas, melanzana parmigiana (an aubergine- and Parmesan-layered bake), pastas, seafood and grilled fillet steak. There's also a children's playground in the garden. Book ahead; it's very popular.

To reach it turn west off Haile Selassie Rd between the easy-to-spot Shrijee Supermarket and Jackie’s.
