Popular with tourists &, I think, locals alike. This place is set in an old square in central Nice. Very average in all ways. Service ok, food nothing special but fine. All in all, if you're hungry you'll be ok; if you're looking for a sublime gastronomic experience, look elsewhere!

Although my wife is not too keen, I absolutely love this place. It is in a very small square in the old town, overlooked by the oldest church in Nice. You have to get there early for a seat outside (it opens at 7.00). The food is not flashy, and is certainly not top notch, but it is traditional, cooked... More

All pizza's are topped with way to much tastles rubber cheese. Service is ok, but not special. Ordering a 1/4 wine you get a 1/2. That kind of thing. Been here since 2007. 2014 was the final visit. Ok for students seeking quick food for a studentprice 😜

all the food I saw in this place come from cans (at the best). the wine is a revolting low-cost juice. Personnally I had the 'lasagne' and I've been sick : I suspect it was not fresh

Great quality, rustic food. Great setting in a little laneway near a cathedral. Try the gnocchi if you're after something authentically local.

We have been visiting Nice for more than 15 years and we keep coming back to this typical Nicois restaurant tucked away in a small square in the heart of the old town. We visited again and despite a makeover of the terrace outside, the restaurant has not lost any of its charm. Efficient friendly service, well cooked food, including... More

This one had it all for us: low-cost, friendly service, great location, and amazing food. We arrived during peak time without a reservation, but there was none of the usual snobbiness. They scrambled together a table for us no questions asked. The decor is cute and, like the food, takes inspiration from local and Italian tastes. Service was friendly but... More
