Have visited Le Gesu on previous visit to Nice. However this visit was a little disappointing in that it was fast food served café style. We ordered a drink whilst looking at the menu and they arrived with a little dish of unexpected nibbles which were whisked away as soon as we had ordered our mains. Tepid Daube of beef and Lasagne were served within second of ordering in dishes with the tell tale signs of microwaving.

We came here in search of lunch on our first afternoon in Nice and were thoroughly besotted once we had finished our meal!

Le Gesu is a tightly fitted restaurant which looks unassuming from outside, but you can totally feel the local vibe once you're seated.

We had a neopolitaine pizza and ravioli, both of which were served in good time and with a smile.

The decor pays homage to OGC Nice, the local football team, and you can imagine this place gets busy pre-match with the locals preparing themselves for the game.

Highly recommended if you are looking for comfortable, friendly stress free dining!

Used to be a regular at Restaurant du Gesu, or Jesus Pizza as it is affectionately known. Always loved it. But that was many, many years ago. Had read a couple of negative reviews, so I was nervous about coming back in case it wasn’t the same. I needn’t have worried. The pizza was still fantastic. The lovely taste of the wood fired pizza oven, thin and crispy base, cheesy, cheesy topping, and chilli oil to just give it a bit extra. Ambience was great, service was brilliant and food was lovely. I was very sad to hear that the old guy in charge had died, but everyone else still there continue to do him proud.

Ate here 3 times during a visit to Nice and enjoyed it each time. Had the pissaladiere each time as an app and enjoyed it each time. Tried 3 different entrees and liked them all.

The Gesu is a small restaurant in the Old Town, near the Gesu Church; simple but comfortable decor.
Good service and friendly, "buzzy" atmosphere.
My husband had the Ravioli filled with beef in a beef stew sauce, which he thought was excellent and a good portion size.. I had a Calzone which was the best I have had for a long time-lovely thin crust.
There is a very good range of starters both Italian and local Nice dishes, although we did not have a starter as the main course was plenty big enough!

Check it out if you can in the Old Town!
