Discover the Villa d’Este
The « Villa d’Este » ?
This is a tribute to the Tivoli Gardens and the region of Rome. The name recalls the wealth of southern Italy and this love of tradition. As for the gardens, they embody the Renaissance at its peak: a cultural jewel where you can find pictures of them on our walls.
How to find us?
On the edge of the Carré d’Or, on the rue Masséna street, the Villa d’Este sets its scene. Between the main thoroughfare and the old Nice, our trattoria accommodates hungry passersby since 1992. In an area bubbling with activity, in the heart of an effervescent pedestrian zone, we offer pizzas with the taste of Italy.
Traditional recipes make the restaurant a pillar of the city center, between epicurean and convivial.
How is it?
Forget the retro trattorias with the red and white tablecloths. It is on the plate that you will find Naples, Rome and Syracuse. Marble tables, black upholstered benches and pizza oven at the entrance: the setting is warm and knows how to stay elegant. And what about the welcoming terrace like the arms of a Calabrian mamma?
A menu to devour
Pastas baked in the oven ? Blended flour like the skin of a Sicilian? A taste only mastered by Chefs? These Italians are crazy…The Villa d’Este presents you
the Pasta di Gragnano.
Our fetish products
Main plate: eggplant pizza
I ordered a pizza, but they serve me a sun. The crust swollen like a crown, the dough thin and stretched: it’s the Neapolitan pizza. The large eggplant slices baked in the oven are reminiscent of Sicily. Tomatoes, ricotta, mozzarella and basil leaves … Green, white and red: it looks like the Italian flag on my plate.

For dessert: Profiteroles
The three profiteroles, wisely aligned on the rectangular plate, prepares a blissful blow. The chocolate flows from their hats, impregnates the pastry and mixes with the whipped cream. Inside, the sweet party continues with a fleur de lait ice cream… You will share, right?
