The restaurant is set in a small square in front of a nice church, so the setting is very picturesque. The food is good, especially the pizzas, but not spectacular. The local rose' wine is good

The Gesu is a good reliable Vieux Nice stalwart. The meals are good the starters are excellent. We found that our ravioli mains were good,but far too large. Puddings are excellent.Staff are superb. I Recommend this place.
