Our dinner at La Villa d'Este was long and leisurely as the restaurant filled while we sipped and dined with no pressure to leave after our large meals were completed. The food was plentiful and well prepared with more mussels on my Spaghetti Fruitti de Mare than I saw when ordering them separately. The spaghetti was al dente and rich... More

We have visited Villa d'Este a couple of times before and have been very satisfied with both food and service. This time, however, did not live up to our earlier experiences. The food was good, but the atmosphere seemed very stressed. The place was packed and the waiters were running like mad. It was Easter, so this may explain all... More

When in Nice and we have a hankering for pizza, Villa D''Este is always our go to place. Superb reception , excellent hospitality and service ...with an smile ! The decor is a bit bizarre : Italian cinema meets Purple reign...but guess what? No one cares ! Everyone comes for the food and not for decor tips. The pizzas are... More

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
