“Great menu, good food, solid ambience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2013

This is a great place for pizza, beef raw or cooked, salads, sort of a French diner-bistro with a wood burning oven. The prices are fair. We ate here twice in six days. It's open late. It's walkable from the Croisette and Le Cannet. Great for people watching. Doesn't get the Croisette crowd, thank God...Check it out.

“Twice in 5 days”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2013

Pizzaiola, 4 Seasons, and the Anduile (spelling?) were all ridiculously good. If I had the opportunity to open a franchise, I might strongly consider it! The pizza is great, the wines great value, the spicy oil is very good.

Service was friendly and efficient. This was a fun casual place to eat that I would return again and again.

“Always a pleasure to visit Chez Xavier”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2013

I have been going to Cannes for over 20 years and this restaurant has become my go to place for a simply delicious meal. Their wood oven pizza is always so good-I like the pizza with chorizo. Their spicy oil add a nice touch to their pizza. They also have very good salads. And nice meat. I had a scallopine Milanese last time with their salad with bacon. Delicious, simple and cheap. Try it for a quick lunch or a dinner. You won't be disappointed.

“Cannes' hidden Italian gem!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 3, 2013

We visited La Pizzaiola on a fridaynight around 7:30pm, after reading about it on tripadvisor.com. The place was already somewhat crowded but luckily, we got a nice table right away (no reservation). A friendly waiter gave us the menu and reappeared after 10 minutes to take up our order. The drinks and food were quickly prepared and brought to us despite the place getting busier and busier. By the time we finished our meals the place was cramped! It seemed like many of the guests were locals, which is probably due to the fact that this restaurant is located just off a main road.

We ordered a dessert to share, a huge piece of delicious Tarte Tatin (priced at 5€, this was a true bargain!!!). All in all, we had a great experience at Pizzaiola and the food was fantastic.

Pizzaiola is a great restaurant which offers simple, classic Italian dishes prepared perfectly. Nothing fancy nor fine dining, but great food at a modest price.

Would definitely recommend, but the place is popular so keep that in mind if you plan to visit.
