On-line Guide: Stuzzico
4 Rue Saint-Gaëtan
04 93 92 70 42
It might just look like a hole in the wall but it’s much more exciting than that. Stuzzico’s is one of the best places to find Italian food in Nice and handily located – just off Rue de la Préfecture – which you may or may not know, is home to many of the bars in Nice. So if you find yourself there and you’d like a quick bite before calling it a night, join the swaying queues here.
Generous serving sizes are just the ticket after you’ve been partying all night, or after an early evening stroll, or even after that lunchtime dip in the Med. You can grab a succulent slice of freshly made pizza for €4 but if you fancy trying something new, go for a mouth-watering arancini ball (€4,50); an Italian speciality of stuffed rice balls, coated in bread crumbs, deep fried and filled with oozing mozzarella – just delicious.
The staff are all native Italian’s with a love for their customers and providing them with good food. They even launch a pop-up bar in the summer months serving fresh mojitos (€6) and Aperol Spritz (€5) on request. Don’t miss out!
Pizza slices from 4 euros
Opening hours: Daily from 10:30 – late
