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 took a 35 minute taxi ride just to come here just because of the Gluten Free options. They have a good sized GF menu but we were very disappointed in the pizza (it lacked toppings and was soggy) and the entrees were just OK. The service was good and friendly.

We got an early reservation on line and were seated right away. We both enjoyed 2 appetizers each for a lighter dinner and the waiter was very good.

This place is always a delight- they have a full menu with entrees and pastas but I always like to go with a group and share a bunch of plates because there are so many good ones to chose from! Definitely recommend the beet salad, meatballs and eggplant rollitini! Prices are reasonable and if you are going before a show they are very accommodating and aware to ensure that you get out on time!

We've been here several times. Love the food and the vibe. Ironically we didn't have a show to go to we were in the neighborhood and wanted a place to eat. The negroni started us off on the right foot. Seems appropriate since its the 100th anniversary of the negroni. Fresh artichoke appetizer was wonderful as was the house made rigatoni with arugula pesto. But the highlight of the evening was Katie, our server. She was excellent. She made great suggestions. Just a great time in a great place.

Food was very good. We went on a Wednesday night and were pleasantly surprised it was $20 bottle of wine night. Wait staff was less than knowledgeable about the Italian red wines listed on the $20 list but we took a chance and just picked one and it was great. Restaurant is pretty loud but that wasn’t really a problem for us.

Quite the gem in Hells Kitchen. Excellent brunch selection with a varied menu that will satisfy even the most picky eater. From traditional brunch fare to individual pizzas and full bar service. We all cleared our plates. Perfect for a causal brunch experience coupled with well prepared dishes.

Excellent pre-theater meal with family & friends! Calamari was delish-- had to ask for additional marinara sauce since the portion that came with the dish was too tiny. We ordered a variety of items and everything was tasty! We had reservations so we did not wait for a table and finished our meal in sufficient amount of time for our show.

One of my favs in the Theater District. Simple Italian/South France menu including gluten-free options. Reasonable prices, great wine, cocktails. If you want gluten-free pizza, try the Soca, so delish and made from chickpeas.

The appetizer (suggested by the waitperson) was very good (rollatini), but the pasta with clams was untouched after two or three bites (my dining partner said the clams were bad), and yet it was not removed from the bill--until we asked. The only reason I didn't give lower stars is that they did remove it from the bill after we spoke up. Caesar salad was tasty but had about ten times too much dressing. As for service, two points: 1) waitperson asked if everything was ok about 60 seconds after serving the food--we hadn't even tasted it yet! and 2) we were never asked if we wanted another drink (which we would have done, as the drinks were fine). I would never go there again, with all the choices avail. in the theater district.

Ate there with my family, went for the gluten free pasta but overall it was not a memorable meal. It was just 2 days ago & not one dish stands out. GF pasta with grilled chicken & cheese, chicken Diablo- the chicken was roasted & the broc rab was Diablo. Clams were lacking- little flavor in the app & with pasta.
Overall not horrible but I would not cross town to eat there
