You come to Nice. You must try Socca. You must go to Chez Pipo. BUT why did socca not spread beyond Nice? Because it is not a very interesting dish. This is a friendly cheap restaurant that is always packed. But you can afford to...More

I will just say something : 99% of foreign customers coming Chez Pipo enjoyed their experience. More than 50% of these customers really loved their experience with socca and congratulate us. Some of them says that it was their best food experience on the French...More

Extremely rude staff. Was ignored numerous times at the entrance while looking for a table. One waiter in particular seemed to have an attitude problem and was very unhelpful. Food was nothing to write home about. Overall, not an overly pleasant experience and would certainly...More

This place has great socca and it is a great value. We ate outside, had rose, and two socca plates: one parmigiana and oned e poivron. We shared some of each and this was enough for us. The soccas were fresh and delicious.

If you come for dinner, particularly on a weekend, just be prepared to wait—but it’s worth it. Many say this is the best socca in Nice, and the crispy, delicious edge is a joy to eat. I especially liked the socca flavored with anchovies. Be...More

Don’t plan to come here for dinner, just be prepared to wait 45 min for the socca, order a bottle of wine and enjoy passing the time! Food was authentic, hot, delicious and a great early evening/late afternoon snack.

I spent 20 years in the Nice region and a lot of friends told me to go to Pipo for his famous Socca. I used to go to Chez Rene at the Old Town, less fancier but so much genuine in the food. It took...More

A nice place to try local food/traditional dish. The portion is not big and can try many kind of dishes. Of course socca is a must try and we were surprised how amazing it is!
