Definitely not a turist trap this nice restaurant where good traditional food is proposed by friendly staff and for a reasonable price. Are you vegetarian? No problem: just talk to the staff and have your personalised menu prepared just for you!

A very good place to discover Gnocchis and other specialities from Nice, in the middle of the old town. Friendly staff. The owner is also the chef.
