For hearty Italian pasta, there is no place better in Nice (apart from the others that are part of the same chain - La Voglia, la Favola and Di Piu). The dishes are ENORMOUS so go with an empty stomach or at least a very healthy appetite. The Rigatoni is my favourite, but the macherroni is great too. I don't... More

I had the seafood pasta with spaghetti and it was good but nothing special. The restaurant felt touristy and the prices were expensive. Good service and it was easy to find.

we went back to this place because we loved it first time around, however we were not impressed with the food we ordered, especially gnocchi with few different cheeses, the dish was way too strong for my taste and the gnocchi were chewy, not very fresh. we also ordered pizza Reina, which was good. Service was good as we came... More

We were here a couple of time during our vacation, because the food was of really high quality, the portions too big to eat and some really friendly and professional waiters. The prices are pretty normal European, but cheap compared to the size of the portions.

Great location, service and food. I highly recommend paying a visit if you are in the area. The food is good quality and the price is not bad. Sometimes there are queues but it is worth it. Very good experience. :-)
