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.

With traditional New York sidewalk seating, terrific service from Spencer, and very good food, including a $20 bottle of wine (a Wednesday evening special), Nizza was a delight. A terrific spot for a pre-show dinner or a casual catch-up with friends, I will be back and will recommend the restaurant to friends.

Really enjoyed our meals. The service provided by Luis was excellent. He made great suggestions. We went on a $20 bottle wine night and enjoyed cans of Rose, which were very good. Fun atmosphere, the bussing staff were great with water and pick up of plates. Would definitely go again and will recommend it.

Socca GF “pizza” was soggy. Chicken beet goat cheese salad was tasteless and the beets were diced and sparse.
Ricotta cheesecake was delicious.

This is not my first time at Nizza and it never disappoints. Had a soca pancake made from chick peas. The bronzino was delicious accompanied by asparagus. If you need gluten free this is a wonderful place to go

The pizza was great and the pasta dishes were fresh, well seasoned and very generous portions but the best part was our server who made it clear that she was only interested in making SURE we had a fabulous meal and time together... she was GREAT. Nice family atmosphere, quiet enough to actually talk and the perfect meal before or after a show!

We made reservations before a comedy show. The food was good- reasonable pricing. Service was ok. We made a reservation note in Open Table that we were celebrating a birthday and forgot to mention it when we arrived. The server never brought it up. No happy hour at this restaurant.

The service was great and flawless from water to wine refills by the waiter. All the food tastes homemade with detailed flavors in each bite. I would definitely go back here! I also liked the intimacy of the place because it is a smaller sized restaurant.

We ate here during the break between Harry Potter Parts 1 & 2. Perfect Caesar salad enough to split for 2. My husband had the lasagna with chunks of lamb in the ragu. I had the special chicken parmigiana with spaghetti and could only eat half. Fortunately my husband helped me. Delicious cappuccino with a pretty tulip design. Lovely waitress. I always come here when I’m in NYC and I’m never disappointed.

I loved this place! I went with some friends for bottomless brunch, and the food and the mimosas were all great! Our waitress was really friendly and always happy to bring us more drinks. They were also really accommodating and aware of my allergies, asking if anyone had allergies almost as soon as we sat down, which I always really appreciate. Would definitely go back again for more pizza!

There were specials on the menu that the waiter didn't want to honor the prices. The service was not good and the quality of food was not to the standard we are used to at Nizza.

Unfortunately, the rudeness of the staff, we will not go back.

Service in the restaurant was great. Only got 3 stars because I put in my reservation that it was my husband’s birthday. Nothing. Nobody cared. Not sure if they even acknowledge birthdays. But if you don’t, don’t make it an option in the reservation.

Attentive and rapid service. This is the theater district and they know how to get you out in time to make your curtain time. We have been here many times with friends and always have a good meal. One of the better crowd pleasing choices in the area.

Artichoke appetizer was very tasty. Branzino was well prepared. My husband liked his chicken but felt it should have had a sauce to balance it better.

We stopped at Nizza for an Sunday matinee pre-theater lunch. Nicely they were serving much of their regular menu as opposed to the usual brunch fare (we just weren't in the mood that day for brunch type food). The service was a bit on the slow side but as we were not in a rush it wasn't much of a bother. We had the Sunday Pasta and the Chicken Milanese and were both pleased with our choices. Overall a very pleasant experience.
