Description: 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.

“Excellent "fruits de mer", high quality service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 2, 2013

A mid-to-high level place, with a small veranda and a great dining area indoor (with a round aquarium in the middle of the room). I usually am very picky with the French service, as I lived and travel quite often there... At Boccaccio the service has been great, with professional yet friendly staff.
We had oysters, white fish and foie gras - all was served quickly, great quality.
Also good selection of wines.

This is not a cheap place, but if you want quality don't look any further!

“A good address in Nice”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 3, 2013

Dependable, mid-to-high level restaurant with professional service (always a surprise in France), nice ambience and comfortable rooms. (Ignore the street-level veranda and go upstairs). Fettuccine and lobster was fine, with the pasta surprisingly well-done, this not being Italy. The baked sea-bream was superb, as you would expect from a serious fish restaurant, which is the case here. The half-bottle of Sancerre (blanc 2011, Garennes) was excellent and reasonably priced.
