Italian
Nizza is a casual Italian restaurant located in the heart of Hell's Kitchen. Chef Andy D'Amico uses the cuisine of the Italian Riviera as a starting point for his exploration of Italy. Our house speciality is our "Socca." Socca is a chick pea crepe baked in our brick oven, traditional to the French city of Nice. Our menu has a wonderful selection of antipasti, salads, soups, pizza, pasta and entrees. We were higlighted in 2008 "Cheap Eats" issues by Time Out New York and New York Magazine. As well as Time Out New York's Top 100 food items of 2008.

We've been coming to Nizza for years.....never a disappointment. This time was for my mom's birthday, before going to a show. Excellent food - we all shared each other's dishes. Good portions, great value. AND bonus, wednesday wine specials!

Atmosphere is lovely. Food is delicious. Best gnocchi I have ever had. Artichoke appetizer is amazing. 5 of us in the group and everyone was very happy with their meals. Would definitely go back.

This was my third time to Nizza and it never disappoints. The food and service are wonderful and the lively, but not loud, room and outdoor seating area are a delight. A great plaice to spend an evening!

Great food. Went here for the gluten-free options after doing some research online. Didn’t disappoint. Food was flavorful and they had a nice wine list to top things off. Would definitely recommend to anyone seeking good gluten-free Italian in NYC.

Most likely wont go again. Food is only a little better than diner food. Good prices and on Wednesday $20 wine which was good.. So noisy it was impossible to have a conversation. My ears and throat hurt after from having to shout. We went once before and it wasn’t as bad. Made a reservation but there were no good tables left for us. Waiter was nice and attentive. Hosts snooty and dismissive.

Too bad because we live in the neighborhood and would have been good customers, but the experience was too stressful and noisy and food just okay.

It was less crowded than expected and the Gluten Free menu is a real plus. I found the Chickpea 'pizza' to be tasty but a little oily. Great wine options. Super service. I'll go back!

The waiters were somehow too busy serving a restaurant with only about 4 tables during lunch hours. We added a salad and it never came, and it was really hard to get their attention too.

Celiac disease makes eating out so difficult and scary. Nizza‘s is the best, the gluten free bread is amazing, and I always feel great after eating here. My favorite!

Nizza is one of our go-to restaurants. The food was up to the usual good standards, however on this occasion, a warm humid evening, the air conditioning inside was not able to keep up with the outdoor heat.

We had a group of six women and everyone had a wonderful time, the staff (Katie!) was so attentive and helpful, the food was delicious and the value was great! We all will highly recommend it since it's right in the theatre district and they gave us a wonderful start to our annual night out at the theatre! Thanks!

The food was delicious, the server was lovely and attentive. We were seated outside, and unfortunately, the foursome at the table in back of ours was extremely loud and the voices were intrusive. Otherwise, it was a lovely evening with our friends enjoying each other and the fine food.

Our waitress took our order, then must have left. We never saw her again. No one until the end of the meal asked if we needed anything or if we were ok.

My family of four ate at Nizza before seeing a show on a weeknight. One of my daughters and I are allergic to wheat, dairy and eggs. They offered a full gluten-free menu and the server was extremely knowledgeable about food allergies and went out of her way to ensure that the chef was aware. The food was delicious! Our server was very attentive and kind. The only downside - The seating is a bit tight. It was tough to get into our seats without bumping the occupied seats behind us. Overall, a great experience and we will definitely dine there again.

I dare you to find a friendlier, prettier restaurant with better food in NYC. I always feel as if I am coming home. The food is amazing. Every time I can force myself to try something new, instead of sticking to my tried and true favorites, I am always happily surprised--and end up adding something to my tried and true favorites list. The staff is absolutely lovely. You really feel taken care of while you are eating the amazing food. The restaurant itself is bright and cheerful and hip. If I were going to start a restaurant, it would definitely be a clone of Nizza!

Nizza is terrific! The food was amazing, as usual. Pasta with seafood, and an abundance of it, was so flavorful. Caesar salad was delicious. Wish they served plain Italian bread instead of focaccia! Very noisy though if you are trying to have a conversation...then ask to sit outdoors! Wednesday = $20 bottles of select wines! Great deal!

I have been here like 5 times. Very disappointed with my last visit. Food and service. Pasta was way over cooked twice breaded chicken was over cooked as well, very tough. Plates were left on table too long had to ask several times for things. My husband and brother had the Sunday dinner, they loved it. Dessert was very good. Of course I will go back because 1 out of 5 visits is a good %.
