Really enjoyed it here. Was super busy - but the service and food was just I wanted it. It was some time ago I went and only have got around to doing a review but thought I'd share it anyway.

I wish someone had told me that the portions are massive. Firstly in Europe come the breads. Ordered assortment of tapas then a whole sea bass which the waiter showed us before it was cooked to perfection also had the truffle potatoes which were amazing, we were given vegetables and a few different sauces. As it was our last night... More

We've eaten here many times over the years. If you like Paella this is the place to come. But be warned, there are two styles of Paella offered. Get the Paella a la Valencia, that's the sea food one. A Paella for two will serve 3 or 4 people. It takes 25 minutes from the time of ordering. It will... More

We came here based on a cousin's recommendation. The outdoor seating is charming but that was full and we were put upstairs in this cavernous room that was empty. It gradually got to be half full but really average atmosphere. Our waiter provided great service. We ordered paella based on our cousin's suggestion. It was pretty good but the issue... More

My wife and I had dinner in Boccaccio in mid September 2017. The visit went down hill quickly. We were initially seated in an empty section. We asked to be moved and were placed in a populated section. The service was below average. We had expected better service. We both had the Paella since it was very popular. The Paella... More

This was our last night in Nice and our paella was superb. The portions were oversize, so paella for two was more than enough for 4. Two persons ordered the mussels, which were very tender and outstanding flavor. The quantity also served four with plenty left over. We also loved the bread, house rose wine and pleasant service. It was... More

Experienced in the restaurant mainly everything mentioned by other reviewers, it's worth reading all comments below, weather bad or good since you are treated based on how much money you spend. Service unfortunately not friendly nor welcoming (apart the hostess), we ordered the tapas as a starter and when this was delivered was just placed on the table without any... More

Very good food, prompt service, good position in the centre of Nice. We went upstairs and were impressed by the sumptuous decor and white linen table cloths and napkins. Always a good sign and indeed the food and service matched the surroundings

A restaurant specializing in seafood and fish, established since 1973 situated on the pedestrian zone at a couple steps from Place Massena. The establishment is particularly renowned for its quality and freshness of its products, its cuisine and service. You will discover the pleasures in the splendor of our place. Come and taste a gastronomic Mediterranean cuisine. Refined dishes delicately presented that reflect our savoir-faire. Le Boccaccio, a true institution, enjoys a terrace and numerous private dining rooms, however, one must enter to discover the warm and elegant ambiance.
