What a tourist rip-off this place is, saw good reviews on Tripadvisor (obviously by the owner), so went for dinner, the antipasti was straight from Lidl and Aldi although put in inviting looking serving bowls, main course a joke, the pasta options on the menu were the base pasta type for €5/6 with the sauce/meat options to choose with it in the 15/16/17 range - what we got were 2 tasteless dishes a half-blind home cook could have whipped up in 5 minutes. The whole experience was downright insulting! Stay away!

Dear Sir,
Firstly, we wish to thank you for your comment concerning your "experience"("experiment") in our restaurant Maccheroni.
Indeed, it’s essential for us to meet the best expectations of our customers.
We are very surprised of your comments concerning our « antipasti » because we work only with fresh products delivered daily.
So, we would be delighted to receive you in our venue, during your next visit, to demonstrate you of the quality of our cooking (we are also anxious to specify that we have no micro wave in our restaurant!)
Finally, we are anxious to reassure the readers of TRIPADVISOR on the seriousness of this website and its contents, it’s indeed impossible nowadays that the owner publishes himself comments on his own restaurant.
Of this fact we thank all the persons satisfied by the MACCHERONI for their comments.
Kindest regards

My wife and I ate here recently and it was wonderful. I had the gnocchi and she had a marguerita pizza and they were both fabulous. The gnocchi was the best I've had to date. The restaurant is tucked away at the end of a dead end street so it's not the easiest restaurant to find but it's definitely worth looking for. My only disappointment is that we went back a couple days later and it was closed, but there were no hours of operation written anywhere so we couldn't tell if they were just closed that certain day or if they close for the offseason (it was Sept 2nd). Either way, if it's open, this is a must eat place in Cannes.

Service was bad, they were more focus on making other people happy. Will not go there again. Food was good but not as good as the review say

Fantastic restaurant in Cannes - went back for a second visit and was even considering a third time! Maccheroni is very well priced even during the film festival and the waiters were the nicest we have come across in Cannes. The truffle pasta and tirimisu are a must!

Read the reviews and decided to give this place a try. We've been in France 3 weeks and find some French waiters to be a bit arrogant..not a huge surprise. Our wine selection must not have measured up because other tables had their glasses refilled frequently...this was not the case at our table. One of our entrees, Rissoto, was undercooked..in fact it was crunchy..there was no offer to replace the dish...waiter shrugged off my comment (even though he asked about the quality of the dish.) A definite double standard In service being provided to French diners over Americans. When we paid the bill there was no apology for the poor quality of the dish....or a thank you for dining at their establishment. We can forgive a little bit of a slip on quality or service if a waiter tries to make us feel welcome, but a RUDE attitude is a big negative with us. We have been traveling the world full-time for five years so this is not our first international dining experience....however, dining in France has been hit and miss. A big disappointment at Maccheroni in Cannes.
