Almost at the end of the pedestrian zone , having looked at and dismissed numerous options on the way, we came across this little gem. On a January Saturday night, it appeared to be packed out with locals rather than tourists and seemed to be a good bet. It proved to be , we had a Linguine with lobster and... More

The food is good, big portion, pack by tourists, and some locals. They have a buffet antipasti or plat de journey which is a menu for the day or you can choose from the menu card. The place is pack , and tendency for the people serving especially the head waiter a bit brusque, and abrasive. My friend and I... More

The owner sits behind a huge menu directing the restaurant like a great orchestra.....abundance of excellent food...good service...very busy inside and out....The eggplant was the best I have ever had and this is always my dish of choice for Italian cuisine...noise level high...like being at a great party in Italy...

On a very wet Monday night in early December, there wasn’t much buzz around Nice. We decided an indoor pizza would fit the bill but, once inside Villa d'Este, we changed our mind and opted for a shared platter of mixed antipasti (€16.50) as a starter, followed by a spaghetti with clams & mussels (€18.50) for me and a cannelloni...

The service in this restaurant is exceptional and fast. The place filled up quickly within 30 mins. The servings are huge and the food is tasty and fresh. I highly recommend this place for great Italian cuisine.

We arrived in the nick of time before the stampede, when the restaurant opened in the evening. This is a really popular place and not surprisingly so. In our innocence we ordered an artichoke salad to share and a pasta dish and pizza for the two of us. This was just too much food but what we did manage to... More

Great food served at this restaurant, especially if you love seafood and/or italian food. The staff is always great. The size of the meals is always good. The desserts are huge!!! One for 2 or 4 persons can be enough.

We shared an excellent spinach salad and a pizza - the portions were such that we both left feeling quite full. The service was attentive and professional. The atmosphere is quite Italian in style. This restaurant and the Massena pedestrian mall is to be recommended. Price is acceptable for Nice.

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
