Nice outside seating. Seafood paella was very delicious, and its portion was more than enough for 2 people. I would recommend this restaurant for seafood.

I would suggest booking especially as the holiday season has begun. We didn't book but when we were there, Nice was not yet busy with holiday travellers.

A restaurant specializing in seafood and fish, established since 1973 situated on the pedestrian zone at a couple steps from Place Massena. The establishment is particularly renowned for its quality and freshness of its products, its cuisine and service. You will discover the pleasures in the splendor of our place. Come and taste a gastronomic Mediterranean cuisine. Refined dishes delicately presented that reflect our savoir-faire. Le Boccaccio, a true institution, enjoys a terrace and numerous private dining rooms, however, one must enter to discover the warm and elegant ambiance.
