After a long day at the Grand Prix in Monaco with my son, our hotel receptionist recommended this restaurant. Staff were very welcoming. We opted for a lasagne each. We couldn't believe it when the dishes arrived within a few minutes... One would have fed both of us. Delicious but sadly we couldn't finish it. Thoroughly enjoyed our visit here... More

We arrived at Villa D'este via our hotel concierge's recommendation for a good pizza. The place was busy - and full of locals - which we took as a good sign. We do not have large appetites so asked for a pizza to share and a bottle of fairly expensive wine however were refused in no uncertain terms so we... More

Found this place by chance for lunch. Full of locals which is always a good sign. We ordered the plat de jour and the lasagne which when it came could easily have fed a family of four followed by a shared chocolate mousse which was equally huge. All very tasty and "washed down" with the palest of pink rose. Staff... More

we had dined here more than once in previous visits to Nice & looked forward but we were very disappointed this time. The very tempting antipasti selection was displayed near the entrance and we choose this from the menu as starter. We're not lovers of shellfish/seafood but staff insist we must take antipasti selection chosen by chef. Has nobody told... More

We went to this restaurant twice while in Nice and the food was equally good on both nights. The waiters were helpful and spoke good English which was lovely. The portions are large and made with the freshest of ingrdients. I had canneloni and spaghetti and two other people had the lasange...all of it was delicious and reasinably priced. The... More

Very good food, fine atmosphere, huge portions, better value if you think to split dishes, but one entree per person is required. We ate after Church for lunch and like it so much we returned for dinner. The Antipasti is from the food you see displayed when you walk in and is divine. Split that and split an entree and... More

I said this to me wife. She was stunned. But it was true, and she knows how much I like my pizza. We stayed in Nice for 6 nights, we ate here by chance on the first night and we returned at the end of our stay for another pizza because every meal afterwards we kept comparing to this one.... More

Quite simply one of the best meals we've had in Nice. We discovered this place straight off the street, a good number of years ago, when we began our love affair with Nice and the Carre d'Or. Since then, every visit back (usually at least annually) has included at least one trip to Villa D'Este, and we've brought friends here... More

Small seating area outside...but...inside, huge! We arrived a few minutes before seven on a busy Carnival Saturday evening. Ushered in to a big empty space in the back, and then! the hordes arrived! Lots of families with kids. Tables filled up and then the fun began. Extremely hard working efficient and good humoured waiters. With the volume of diners all... More

Savoury and large serve of different kinds of pasta. I tested the place at 3 times, and tasted different meal. All where excellent. Pizzas are worth too.
