After a few nights in the Course Saleya region this was the best place we went to. Menu was good, and the portion size was incredible. Was always the most popular restaurant whenever we walked by, and can understand why after visiting.

I spent 2 months in Nice with my sister and we loved going to La Favola for "plat of the jour". It is fresh and very reasonable. There are 4 Italian Restaurant in Nice that are offering the Plat the Jour they are all GREAT!

There are a lot of Italian restaurants in Nice but this one caught our eye as we walked by. So glad we stopped. Huge portions, and the quality of the food was excellent. Started with the antipasto platter--cheese, vegetables, seafood, meats, melon--all VERY well done...More
