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.

I’ve seen Nizza advertised in Playbill for many years and decided to try it for a pre theater dinner.
We originally sat inside but since it was nice weather we dined al fresco. The Manager was very accommodating with the switch from inside to outside.
We ordered the Socco which was delicious: tasted like a thin slice of focaccia bread topped with Parmesan and basil. My friend ordered the shrimp scampi appetizer and was impressed with the amount of shrimps served.
I ordered the arugula with fennel salad which was delicious and light. For my main the linguini with clams; also a nice portion of clams served.
We finished with some cappuccinos and hazelnut gelato.
The service was prompt and attentive.
The bill was extremely reasonable.
Will definitely dine here in the future.

The food is consistently very good. Wednesday is $20 bottle of wine day. A varied selection of wine is offered. This is a wonderful value for NYC. The noise level is energetic.

The Food, the Service, and the Atmosphere were all magnificent. The weather worked in our favor, so we were able to sit at an outdoor table and it was a very enjoyable experience. The food was excellent and our waitress was wonderful during our meal. Would definitely eat there again, and will make sure to tell our friends as well.

My waitress Sarah -- in addition to waiting tables, she's waiting for her Big Break on Broadway -- was great and a lot of fun. We eat there a lot and this was a typically positive experience.

Nizza is a rare find in the theatre district - well seasoned food in a lively atmosphere with wonderful service and most of all, sensible fair pricing. The food is always well prepared, fresh and tasty - warm foccacia, great cocktails and well priced wine list with daily specials,the linguine a vongole has fresh clams in a garlic infused sauce - all the food was delicious.

I choose this place because of the reviews, I don’t know if it was bad luck, but we asked for 3 pizzas ( 2 of them GF) and they have been the worst pizzas in a while. The pizza sauce was without flavor, the dough was not fully cooked, I don’t know how the gluten free pizza is highly recommended since it is not good at all

I love it here, the food is great, and service is good although the seating is a little uncomfortable we were first sat at a tight booth which I couldn’t sit in because of a back injury then we were kindly moved to a table that had a chair but was not designed well such that if you had long legs the table base cuts into them, my brother was very uncomfortable and said he would never go back, also it’s a little loud because it’s always packed full. With all that said, it’s my favorite pre theatre restaurant

As always, Nizza did not disappoint. We were there this past Wednesday, before our matinee . Service is excellent, and food delicious. It has become our go-to place to eat, and my daughter who needs gluten-free food, enjoys that menu, also. The price is right, too!

Nizza is an all time favorite of ours. Food and service are always excellent. It is on 9th and 44 but it is not a Times Square tourist trap. Great place for locals to escape the chaos around them and for tourist to enjoy an authentic NYC restaurant with great food and ambience for reasonable price.

I’ve been having dinner there with 2 colleagues few times before. We went there again this time is because in the past the food is good and price is moderated.
This time I ate a steak and it’s sad that I was disappointed..... it didn’t have the taste of beef, also seems no seasoning : (

waitress was overly aggressive and pushy to turn over table and get her "big" tip.
I was there to meet relatives I haven't seen in years and I recommended the restaurant because
of the large gluten free menu. food was terrific. teach your wait staff to cool their jets!
