On our third night we again asked the Hotel to recommend a dinner venue this time Italian. Great place with attentive staff and very nice food, all the normal Italian and then specials. Very enjoyable.

The Italian style menu looked very good however the meal failed to live up to the descriptions, being rather lacklustre. The service although swift was delivered without enthusiasm. Sorry not good enough!

When you want great service, good food and unpretentious homely tastes - go here. Just check out the line of people (including lots of locals) at the door at 7pm.

This was a hotel recommendation. It's much bigger than it looks from outside as there are two floors. I had the Lasagna, which was enormous (with a green leaf salad), and one of the best I've tasted for a long time. The service was very good, considering that by 8pm they were full and very busy. The atmosphere was buzzy... More

Superb Italian food in this restaurant which is much larger than it appears from the outside. Portions are huge and prices very reasonable. Sharing plates is the way to go. They have a magnificent and huge Antipasto plate for E16.50 which we share as a starter, then we share a pizza or a huge pasta at about 13 - 15... More

We were recommended to go here by the taxi driver from the airport, who also had two small children! We arrived just before seven and it hadn't opened yet so went for a short walk, literally and came back shortly after seven to find it packed! We did get a table, though within a short time there was a queue... More

Go here if you want tasty and authentic italian food for lunch - right in the main shopping area and so ideal for a quick bite to eat. The pasta is cooked perfectly al dente and the sauce was really delicious served with good quality, fresh grated parmesan. Good espresso too.

We ate here a year ago and I promised that on this trip, this would be our first night dinner. Lived up to my memories. Very busy place and big...we watched probably 100 people directed to their second floor dining room. Friendly efficient waiters who really work, yet never miss a thing, and are unfailingly pleasant. Menu features pizzas, pastas,... More

Italian cuisine in Nice is abundant, but finding really fresh, good food is a delight. The lasagne was a big hit with our men... they served an entire 8 x 8 casserole dish right from the oven. We also had the eggplant, spaghetti, pizza and penne. EVERY dish was excellent. We found this place as a recommendation from the concierge... More
