I frst went to the Restaurant du Gesu in the summer, and sat outside in the shaded, enclosed space overlooked by the beautiful Jesuit church, and hemmed in all round by high, elegant buildings. It was a great place to stop and eat well cooked pasta and a decent house wine and look up and wonder. Back this November, I... More

Food is acceptable but nothing to write home about, standard standard Nicoise fare, pasta, pizza, veal dishes etc, but the ambience is terrific, lots of locals, waiters with a great sense of humour buzzing around non stop. Tucked in the old part of Nice at the corner of two narrow streets dominated by an imposing church. Service starts at seven,... More

Cannot believe that people are treated like this nowadays! Very rude waiter! Middle age dark hair guy is unbelievable boorish! This restaurant was recommended to us by locals as a good pizza place. Neither the pizza was good and of course the place itself left the terrible feeling. I believe this place has business just because of it's location -... More

We had an amazing experience! We started with 6 people and more friends kept on coming to meet us. We end up being almost 20! The owner, Claudine, was extremely welcoming and the food was great! Niçoise salad and the gongozola gnocchi were DELICIOUS!!!! I hope to come back some day!!

Went under the recommendation of the person at reception at our hostel - was looking for local cuisine - not entirely what we were looking for but the food was very tasty. Beautifully served carbonara with an egg yolk on top - plenty of complimentary bread. My girlfriend had a margarita pizza which challenged most of the pizzas we had... More
