We stopped in so our kids could have dessert. We were the only people in the whole restaurant. When we ordered just for our children we were told that with five people all five people must order. They told us that we must leave. We didn't give them the satisfaction of giving them our money. Don't waste your time in this dump! Loved everything else about Nice except this place!

WORST SERVICE i went there with my family it looked pretty good our girls wanted some ice cream we went and took a seat and gave our order later after 10min a waiter came and told us (me and my wife) that we had to order 4 things because we were are 4 people we said we didn't want anything but he started forcing us. We thought it was a joke but again a few minutes later he came back and told us we didn't order anything (VERY RUDELY) and told us he would not give us anything that we had order and started being really racist it got so bad that we had to call the police

WONT TELL ANYONE TO VISIT THIS PLACE EVER REALLY HORRIBLE !!!!!
( order total cost was 20 euros)

Good selection of Italian made ice cream. Service with a smile even if you don't speak French. They have outdoor seating or take away.

We went here three different nights...why I don't know. I guess because it was on the promenade and on our way home. The first night we just ordered beers as we were on our way home and wanted a "nightcap"...the waiter seemed very put out that we were only ordering beer. The next night we were allying home and we wanted some gelato, but we wanted to walk and eat it...the same waiter directed us VERY RUDELY to the outside ice cream stand they have around the corner for people who don't eat in. The last night we stopped to eat gelato in the restaurant and get some water and use the restroom. He was incredibly rude...my husband, who is normally overly passive, was furious. He did not leave a tip and wanted to give him a piece of his mind, but instead he walked out to the gelato take away stand and told the two waters there what a jerk the guy was. It was humorous as my husband is reserved and because I'm not really sure the men he was telling really spoke any English. That same tier was rude to others that came in as well. Stay away! Or get your gelato from the outside stand its cheaper and he guy is super nice.
