La Taverne Masséna

At the centre of Nice’s pedestrianised district

Since 1963, 25 Rue Masséna has been a must-visit location in Nice. At the heart of the pedestrianised area and all its hustle and bustle, this well-known brasserie has attracted lovers of good food, whether on the terrace or in the nicely decorated dining rooms. Here you can try traditional dishes from across France (from the famous Alsatian choucroute to the Niçois petits farcis), all in a friendly environment.  

At La Taverne Masséna, you’ll also be able to enjoy our famous pizzas with their unique taste, both crisp and soft with lashings of toppings, including cheese carefully selected from independent producers, as well as a divine apple tart to end the meal on a high.
There is also a large selection of Niçois specialities, as well as humble favourites, pasta dishes, salads, meat dishes, fish dishes and mussels, as well as artisan ice cream and homemade desserts.

The Maison Cresci

One family’s fantastic story!

A pioneer in developing the concept of the pizzeria in France, Francis Cresci opened La Taverne Masséna in Nice in 1963, an authentic French brasserie that has since become a significant institution in the city.

Very welcoming and friendly staff. Quick service. I’ve been eating pizzas at La Taverne Masséna for years and have never been disappointed. Very generous, highly recommended.

Excellent! We arrived late and the welcome that we were given was very pleasant, smiley and relaxed. Nothing to say about our meals – lasagne and seafood choucroute – other than that they were generous and really good. We would recommend without any hesitation.

Always excellent! A Nice institution, a great Parisian-style brasserie, great cuisine, the products are fresh, great value for money. Quick service by kind young servers. In the summer months, the second-floor terrace is extraordinary!

Impeccable welcome and service. This restaurant was recommended to us by a native of Nice, and this advice turned out to be excellent. Between the welcome, the service and what we ordered, everything was perfect. Thank you!

Excellent! We got a very reception and service for a table of 16 people! The dishes were very good, generous, and the prices were perfect. The Maison Cresci pizzas are particularly original and good.
