We had the Piaya for 2. It cost a total of E90. The clams were tough, and there were only 2 shrimp. I expected more than mussels, clams, squid, sausage and 2 shrimp. More shrimp, some scallops and lobster for the price.

The bad experience just started from the moment we walked in,last till the end. When we arrived,We told the girl we had reservation for 8 people. She said to me: I don't know. Wait.

Our first day in Nice, we walked past this place & it looked nice so we sat inside looking over the many people walking by... Unfortunately we got a waitress who was on her first day :-(. We asked her about the Champagne (there were 2 prices listed for the same brand) and about the several meals. She admitted to... More

We had booked a table as we had heard that this was a popular restaurant. We had read a few mixed reviews but this restaurant did not disappoint. We were seated immediately inside the restaurant, which incidentally is furnished like a galleon ship. Great wine list and menu. The service was fantastic and the staff were really helpful. We had...

The good: excellent oysters, large portions, decent service for a place so packed. The not-so-good: Seafood pasta wasn't great. The atmosphere is typical for an American-style resto with 100% tourists clientele (russian/ chinese). There's nothing Nicois about this place. Bottom line. If you're looking for a comfortable place with an English menu and large selection then Boccacio is highly recommended.... More

I believe that the cooking is dedicated too much for tourists and doesn't focused on quality. Service not special. It is also expensive according to the dish offered.
