This restaurant was recommended by our hotel concierge who booked it too. Viewed from the outside it looks no different from all the other restaurants along the rue Messena but we were shown to the top floor where you would think you are in an old seafaring galleon. Remarkable! All beautiful wood and the circular shaped roof made you think... More

We had a lovely dinner at Boccaccio on our first evening in Nice. The food was superb, in particular the moules starter, the fish soup and the sole main course. The wine was good ( as was the complimentary glass of fizz beforehand) and the service was unfussy and attentive. Well worth a visit.

I had a lunchtime business meeting here. The whole experience is a professionally superb experience. The fish and shellfish menus are some of the best in Nice and not to be missed. The wines are fine too. A lunch time plat de jour plus a glass of wine costs about 25€ but is of excellent quality, a Nicoise experience not... More

Excellent oyster gillardeau, pasta with seafood and pasta with truffles. Oysters were fresh, prepared well in a platter. The pasta fruti di mare was in a big portion with Lenny of seafood, and mussels. The pasta truffles was excellent. Service was good.

Really enjoyed Boccaccio, passed it many times - the mountains of seafood and stuff. This time I stopped. Excellent food, well prepared and abundant! If you like seafood and paella and not on a budget then wander in here, you will not be disappointed. You will dine well. A little pricey but worth the extra dimes. Relax back and enjoy... More

What a goldmine...we stopped in for some oysters and just kept on eating. We are from Boston and love seafood..but we were shocked at how well prepared the mussels were..the oysters were great and this seafood pot of pretty much everything was as fresh as if we were sitting in the ocean. Great location on Messena..

Sister lives in Nice and was impressed by lunch here, we took menu de jour which was good value, other dishes looked pricy. waiters were aloof until told in nicois to shape up. busy. surprisingly large interior with a galleon like main room - unusual.
