La Villa d'Este is an Italian restaurant in the heart of Nice for more than 20 years! It owes its success to its traditional recipes, but also to its ever changing menu. The restaurant offers you to taste oven baked pasta dishes, great classics of the house, as well as pasta dishes and original pizzas. Italian cuisine, very varied, also offers a presentation of antipasti, meats, fish and daily specials. Grand gourmet desserts such as the giant l'eclair gianduja. The quality of each dish is enhanced by the generosity and love for flavor. The place, chic and elegant, is located in a Dolce Vita decor strongly infused with the Villa d'Este in Tivoli. The restaurant offers a beautiful seating capacity through its various dining rooms with a dining service of quality and experience. The terrace, situated on the pedestrian zone, offers a refined and modern setting.
