Had a great night with good food... I only had a pizza to share with my 18 month old daughter, my wife got the carpaccio, both were average. Atmosphere was nice as were the staff. Dessert was very nice, with the chocolate mousse being big enough easily for two, probably for more. If it wasn't for sharing with my daughter... More

Its lunch time. The restaurant is 2/3rds empty. We were welcomed to a nice table outside. Looking around, the pizzas looked good and quite large for just one person Wife and I decide we'll just split one since we're not that hungry... Waiters: "NO SHARING!" "NON! NON! NON!" "YOU MUST ORDER DIFFERENT PIZZA!" "NO EXTRA PLATE!" "NON NON NON!" "NO... More

This restaurant is part of a number of restaurants by the same owners, Le Boccacio, and Le Favola, very generous with their portions, food is fresh and prepared on order, a main dish would be largely sufficient. But treat yourself to their excellent home made ice cream which they prepare in the restaurant the Italian way ! (strawberry and vanilla... More

We decided to try our luck and sit at a restaurant that we found along our walk through the streets of Nice. Due to the look of the tables, the queue to get in and the size of the portions (and how fancy they looked) we opted to grab a table at Villa d'Este. We were not disappointed! We ordered... More

Wonderful place in the center of Nice. The terrasse is small but you will always find a table inside. Very nice service. Good and big card with great choices. Paid around 30 € for big salad and a great pasta with a good wine. Will go back.

We eat here one time when we were in Nice. It was right beside our hotel, so it was convenient to go there :) Great food, the only thing was that we weren't told that all the dishes were meant for 2, so we got a loooooot of food, would have liked to know that before we ate. Not that... More

We walked past several times and the food looked good - but it was too crowded. Today we went to the restaurant at 7 pm. We had a good table outside at the edge of the terrace. We ordered with a not interested waiter. So far so good - but what happened around us was incredible and quite crazy. The... More

We have recently returned from a two week holiday in Nice. Have to say that with several exceptions, this restaurant, Le Frog and Luc Salsedo we found the food of poor quality, little choice and very expensive. Villa D'Este is essentially an upmarket pasta and pizza restaurant but delivers on all levels. My partner and I sampled most of the... More

Staff were friendly, helpful and attentive. Food was great albeit huge portions! My wife loved the plate of antipasti she ordered.
