Good food, good value

Came here for our first night in NIce and were not disappointed. Pizzas were well made with quality ingredients and the staff were pleasant and friendly. Prices were ok for Nice.

Superb location in centre, variety of restaurants around, but exceptional food quality in here. Mozzarella in awesome Villa d Este Salad is unique! staff not necessarily friendly, but considering the pace they re facing to work in, 100% proffesional! worth waiting couple of minutes for a table, as mostly crowded.

Set amongst a number of restaurants on Rue Massena, this restaurant stands out in terms of value for money. The Italian restaurant has a good selection of pizzas and pastas. Be prepared for large portions and consider sharing a main and a starter rather than ordering two main meals. We ate there on out first night in Nice and were... More

We were in Nice after the Easter weekend and found this nice looking restaurant from outside. It doesn't big from the outside but when you walk in you will feel like it's a food factory. In fairness we quite enjoyed the food here, but we definitely not going back again because of the waiter. One waiter who we think was... More

Yes I know, every restaurant serves spaghetti and you probably make it at home - at least I do but the Villa d'Este's is spectacular.Loads of fresh tomatoes and just the right amount of basil and oil. The pasta was perfectly al dente. We sat in the closed terrace area on a sunny day and it was very hot because... More

We had a nice lunch here last Monday. The restaurant was very busy hence we had to be patient for our food. My tartare steak was excellent and so was my wife's fish dish. Waiters are swifting around to take orders and bring drinks and food to all tables on both floors.

The title says it all. Recommended. 110 Euro for two courses plus a bottle of nice wine for two people. Part of a chain of 3 restaurants in Nice.

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
