We came to this restaurant as a group of 40, and we were so pleased with how well they handled our large group! They were extremely attentive, constantly bringing more water and bread, and did a great job getting all of our meals out on time. They even brought out a complimentary appetizer for one member of our group whose... More

We went here based on reviews on TA and we were not disappointed. It is located in a touristy area, but didn't feel like a tourist trap. This restaurant is huge with several rooms upstairs. The portions are very large and easily shared. We shared a salad and a pasta dish with a bottle of wine. We were stuffed, but... More

We (My wife and daughter) were on our first visit to Nice and this restaurant came highly recommended. The restaurant opens at 7.00pm and within about 15 minutes it was very full. It was suggested we arrive early, for good reason. A restaurant full of locals dining is always a good sign. The service was great and our orders were... More

A favourite - but remember the words "a partager" - you had better be very, very hungry if you choose to have individual courses. Then again if you like large portions you have come to the right place. We always share as the portion sizes are huge. Food is awesome too. I think the upstairs has had a minor refurb... More

I know this might seem strange to some people but, my experience was spoilt by the gargantuan size of the meals. I want a starter to be something that sets me up for a main. not something that fills me up so much that I can't face the main. I don't want my sweet to be something that kills me... More

Odd though it might sound, finding good places to eat on the Cote d'Azur can be a challenge and food disappointing, but Villa D'Este is one of the places at which I always enjoy eating. It is an extremely busy restaurant and service can suffer as a result, but management does care about customers. For instance, when we visited recently,... More

Came for what we thought would be a great dinner out having heard good reviews. The place was full, but the manager lead us upstairs to another area. We waited awhile, but were eventually seated. Our waiter immediately took our drinks order.... But everything went downhill after that. We waited very VERY VERY long periods between ordering our food, being... More

We went here to enjoy what everyone said was the best pizza in town. When we arrived, we were immediately seated. The restaurant was not busy at the time. However, we sat, and sat, and sat. No one brought us water. No one took our drink order. No one came back and waited on us. Understand I know meal time... More

Big portions! Mussels and clams were really fresh and good although I found the gravy/base slightly salty to my liking. That was compensated by the delicious penne pasta (tomato base) The place was really packed and the waiters were extremely busy during dinner time (restaurant seems to be frequented by locals a lot here) so don't expect fast service. I... More
