Don't get fooled by the turistic appearance of this restaurant: Lasagna, Maccheroni, or Rigatoni - no matter what is your choice, this italian-calabrese restaurant (aubergines are everywhere!) will keep up with your expectations. The pizza is also at a more than satisfactory level, but nothing compared to the main dishes. The staff is very friendly and the value/price ratio is... More

We went here for lunch, and the portions are very large, so we got too much food. It was very good and the prices were nice. Staff could have been friendlier, but would go back for dinner.

Food here is great. Good choice on menu. Portions are huge. We got the antipasti, lasagna and chocolate pot for dessert with wine. Was quite reasonably priced. Would highly recommend.

As we usually stay in Nice, we know the La Favola since our previous stays- and it is always busy in the evening; it opens 19:00 but is crowded and full 30-40mins later! Portions and quality are excellent- ok you are in Nice so dont expect to save money- you are here to enjoy with friends! Try the antipasty starter... More

La Favola is one of many restaurants situated in Nice's Old Town. We ate there twice during our stay on the basis that it was busy compared to other restaurants and that we didn't have to run the gauntlet of being hassled to go into every other restaurant in the old town by over zealous touts. There is an option... More

I came in recommendation of a friend. While food was ok, the plates were huge. The waiters were very busy. Portions are large and probably are meant to be shared. Might be a good family choice. Definitely not a solo visit and not a date place, as it was somewhat loud.

A good go-to in an area with plenty of restaurants. One important piece of advice is don't order starters/appetisers unless you are very hungry! My friend's lasagne came in its own cast iron tray (a 12-brownie size square!!), I also saw the lady nearby take half her rigatoni home for later! So share or just stick to a main. As... More

Good selection of food choice , interesting fish dishes . Menus had English translation . Staff were friendly and good atmosphere . Good value for money . One of our group had a very impressive fish selection but unfortunately the quality was disappointing
