5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 August 2014 via mobile

I highly recommend this restaurant for italian food lovers. Not to expensive and very good pasta. Well located and the service was good and attentive.
It is not easy to choose a good restaurant in this crowded square but I really loved it.

“Great value in historic Nice”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 August 2014

This was a great find in the heart of Nice. My wife and I ended eating dinner here out of convenience and it was very good. We actually ate here twice. The lasagna and the pizza were great and the wine is very affordable. The place was mixed with tourists and locals with plenty of outdoor seating but the inside is much nicer than you would expect. Two pizzas and wine is about 45 euros, very affordable and we would recommend.

“The place to be...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 August 2014

...since La Favola is on the Cours Saleya, more Nice is not possible. If you are lunching outside you are sitting on the famous market. In the evening the terrasse is bigger since the market is over and people happily wait in line to get a table. The food is good but not exceptional and the big portions seem to be partially responsible for the success. I had a lovely pasta & sea food dish my friend a vegetarian option recommendet and "pimped" by adding more vegetables by the lovely waitress. They have their act together even during busy tourist season;)

“Good food and great atmosphere ”

I ate here with my friend one evening. We ordered a pizza and pasta with mussels and we were both very happy with our choices. The portions were very generous and we both left the restaurant feeling full and content.

“Don't judge a book by its cover!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 August 2014

The place was very busy when we visited, so despite having to queue to be seated we gave it a a go. The food only LOOKED fine but the quality was disappointing as well as the service: baguettes were STALE, I am no expert in wine but the house wine tasted like watered down (I told the garcon but he ignored my comment!). Seafood was blant, spagethi was OK. I wouldn't eat there again.
