We had just arrived in Nice from the airport and we were starving. As we wondered the streets looking for anywhere that was open, everyone told us we were too late and they'd stopped serving. That was until we found this restaurant and the owner David who saw that we clearly looked very lost and hungry, and although he was... More

Amazing pizza and very good dessert. Easy to get a table if you don't come to late. Sometimes the service is a little bit slow but they are very nice.

Dined here with 3 friends. Great tasting pizza at a reasonable price. Good outdoor seating area. Located in the Old Town area of Nice.

We spent a week in Nice and chose to eat in this restaurant 4 times because of the delicious food, good value and friendly service. The pizzas were cooked to perfection in the wood burning oven. There was a good selection of pastas and other dishes for those who didn't want pizza.There was also a 3 course menu for only... More

Yes, the pizza is excellent and yes, they have a wide variety of pizzas and yes I am sure to order the hot oil to whichever pizza strikes me fancy. However, my husband didn't want pizza and opted instead for the 13.50€ menu for one plate, a glass of wine and coffee. He chose the plat du jour which was... More

Had a very good dinner. Reasonably priced, attentive service, well prepared food. It seems like a place locals come to often. Didn't have pizza, but every one that was served around us looked great.

Lost in the back streets well past midday, and stumbled on this unpretentious address to quench serious hunger. The pizza with truffle sauce & roquette was perfect. The crust was cooked to perfection. Madame's home made lasagne was serious fare too. All for a very reasonable price. Off the beaten track, but you wont be taken for an american tourist.... More

The pizza was superb, but as noted by others, the service is very sloppy. The place was animated and popular, and street side tables were good

Great restaurant but a little out of the tourist beat. Once found never forgotten. Food is great and Owner is friendly as are the staff. The restaurant serves very good pizza's which are very popular but as I am not a pizza man I prefer the fillet of beef with pepper sauce is excellent. Salad Nicoise is also very good... More
