We wanted a simple evening meal after a busy day and walked for a few minutes from our hotel and found this gem of a little Italian family restaurant. The pizza was freshly made in the wood burning oven which is the main focal point of the inside of the restaurant and easily provides great viewing, watching the very skilful chef make the pizzas to order. My wife had lasagne which was very tasty with an extremely creamy sauce. We will definitely return to this restaurant in the future.

Very convenient - right next door to the Hotel Boreal.

The place is very relaxed and the staff were friendly and pleasant.
I ordered the Romana Pizza; my fiance' the Cannibale.
The Pizza's were SO well made - it was so delicious we ate every bit of our order.
We were so impressed we even ordered dessert - I recommend the ice cream and Creme Brulee'!
It took a few minutes to get the staff's attention, but by then we were the only people left so it's not bad at all. Also, there are some staff who speak English and the male waiter kindly asked those who did to take our orders instead.
No real bad points...we just wish we there when it was busier for more ambience!

We visited this pizzeria/restaurant on our last evening in Nice. We were staying at The Boreal almost next door and usually prefer to venture further for a walk and a meal in the evening. However, on this particular evening we decided we would try Don Carlo as we had passed by many times and wondered what it would be like. It was not as busy as the establishment next door but I failed to see why. This place is quite rustic in character and the old pizza oven on full view.
We had very tasty meals, I had lamb kebabs and my husband steak of some sort. The food was very tasy, the wine good too. Water was put on the table as a matter of course.
While waiting for our order, we were brought a small slice of pizza which had just been made as a "Taster" and it was absolutely lovely, we almost regretted not ordering pizza in the first place. However, next time we are in Nice we will.
While we were eating the restaurant gradually filled up, perhaps we were just a little too early for the rush!
The staff were polite and friendly and the food good. Would recommend and would return.

We decided to go there, because we were tired and it was the nearest restaurant, but it was a great choice! We took pizza (too big for one person), plat du jour and dessert. Everything was really tasty, so we visited Don Carlo also next day. We were only trying to speak French but waiters didn't have problems with that and speak English too. Good food, nice staff and reasonable prices - what do you need more? If we go to Nice again we definitely visit Don Carlo.

We were staying at the nearby Boreal hotel and wanted a cheap meal. There was a great choice of food with many different pizzas. The pizzas are cooked in a wood oven that is visible to everyone at the restaurant. The staff were very nice and the service was quick. Great for a cheap (prices ranged from 8.50 euros to about 20 euros) meal.
