La Piazza Restaurant in Cannes, all the delights of Italy ! La Piazza Restaurant is just moments from City Hall, at the foot of Suquet, Cannes’ old town on the hill. For more than 20 years, it has taken pride in cooking with an authentic Italian flavor. When you arrive, you’ll be warmly greeted by Harold, the Restaurant Manager, and Nelson, his number two. Immediately, you’ll find yourself in a restaurant that puts the accent on transalpine tradition: red tablecloths, solid wood furniture, a family atmosphere…

Whether it’s a meal with friends, with all the family, or just for the two of you, a business engagement or a lunch break, you’ll get a very warm welcome. And you won’t have to wait for a table – we have seating for 350 people! We also offer personalized menus for your group celebrations (birthdays, wedding anniversaries, family reunions, business get-togethers…).

At La Piazza Restaurant, you can watch our twenty or more varieties of pizza being cooked over a wood fire, with all the experience of our pizzaïoli, who have no hesitation in supplementing their range of traditional pizzas, like la Reine, la Napolitaine, or la Marguerite, with more surprising recipes, such as la Calzone (a real turnover for a pizza!), la Ninja (garnished with slices of pineapple), and la Bresaola Rughetta (featuring fresh rocket salad)…

In the kitchen, our young chef, François Valdenaire, ably assisted by his talented team, concocts some wonderful dishes. Whether you’re a meat lover, or a fish specialist, there’s a Dish of the Day just for you: Daube (a sort of stew) à la Provençale, Blanquette of veal, Cod served with poached vegetables in aioli sauce, Bouillabaisse, the celebrated Provençal-style fish soup, Mussels in white wine, the ubiquitous Moules Marinières…
