Normally we go to La Volgia every Saturday evening for our date night. We decided to go to their other restaurant across the street which is the same owner and they have almost exactly the same menu, prices, etc. The pizzas were okay but the our experience was marred upon ordering because when I asked the waitress if she could...

Went on a friends recommendation, absolutely loved it there so went again the next day. They have an English menu available. Food was very delicious and plentiful. The starter breads and olive oils was so good. Ordered many different foods as a group of 4 on 2 nights and every single dish was delicious. Lobster linguini was the most favourite.... More

Yes as others pointed out, the plates are to large, but we didn't force it down and left quite a bit on the plate. I had Rigatoni with eggplant, great sauce while my wife had a white pizza with ham and mushrooms, (very few mushrooms) without tomato sauce. The pizza was nice and thin, great tasting, we where deceived by... More

Three of us popped into this restaurant for dinner recently. We arrived early, as previous reviews had said it gets crowded quite quickly. We had also noted previous reviews which commented on the size of dishes. As we were not feeling very hungry we limited ourselves to sharing a half pizza, plus the seafood spaghetti. Both dishes were ample for... More

This is one of 4 restaurants in Nice all owned by the same owner, and 3 doing exactly the same! The food is always fast to arrive, well presented, edible and very large portions, and fresh. We love to go often for a casual dinner. The choice of antipasti is large so if you have that you probably don't want... More

Portions far too large. Good food but overwhelmed by the size of the plates. Could have easily fed two. A shame to leave people feeling stuffed as the main memory.

I regularly comme to this place (or la Voglia or La Villa d'Este which have the same owner) with my friends when we want to have good Italian food. The location is very convenient and the dishes are very good and you won't end-up hungry after one of them! We usually share a "Gros pot trois chocolat" for dessert. Miam!... More
