Love and eat!
This could be the slogan, in style with Italian current affairs, for the Valentine's Day of Italians on the coast of Kenya. What could be better, to celebrate the feast of lovers in a dream location, than toasting while enjoying one or more specialities of the Indian Ocean or African land, perhaps cooked according to Italian tradition or mixed with some essential ingredients from home?
And when the usual punctilious people who dot the ipsilon object 'why eat Italian food when you can do without it?', we can answer: what would a seafood salad be without extra virgin olive oil? This is just one of many examples we can give.
In any case, Italian restaurants, which do not disdain Swahili and international recipes on their menus, not only offer their dishes at their best for Valentine's Day, but also prepare for romantic and atmospheric evenings.
Going in alphabetical order, here are the main proposals from the Italians in Kenya portal.
BABY MARROW ART & FOOD RESTAURANT
The garden-restaurant on Vasco Da Gama Road, which in itself always offers romantic corners with artistic sets and atmospheric lighting, after last week's success, on Tuesday evening will once again present the Ethiopian singer 'Bananasoverdose' with a live concert different from the previous one, very much focused on love songs and soft. Reservations are recommended, Tel. 0700766704
KILILI BAHARINI RESORT & SPA
The charming and elegant beach resort in Silversand for Valentine's Day offers a different and special day: why not stay directly in one of the comfortable, quiet rooms as if you were on your honeymoon, and take advantage of a special offer: in addition to a romantic candlelight dinner on the beach, with specialities cooked by Kilili's chef, you can enjoy a day of pampering with a Turkish bath or jacuzzi for couples at the resort's SPA, be pampered with chocolate and roses for the ladies and, for those arriving from Nairobi, there is round-trip airport transfer.

OLIMPIA BEACH CLUB
On Valentine's Day, Olimpia in Casuarina never forgets to pay homage to women with a red rose and to offer a mignon of sparkling wine to each one.

For the rest, an à la carte menu with a wide choice of pasta, fish and meat dishes, as well as delicious pizza baked in the special wood-fired oven of the restaurant's own production.
