Grab that pizza and head to the beach!

Señor Francesco makes authentic pizzas with fresh ingredients as you’re watching. Best to order in advance by phone around the busy hours and otherwise it’s worth the wait. We had the vegetalien and the mushroom pizza, which we very much enjoyed.

Pros: Authentic pizzeria, Great selection of vegan pizzas

Cons: No seating, Preparation time

Nice pizza

The pizza was very good! My only criticism is that the chunks of eggplant were huge and difficult to eat that way. Also, all the pizzas are cut with the same pizza cutter so theoretically there could be traces of non vegan ingredients on it that transfer to your vegan pizza.

Fabulous vegan pizza!

One of the best vegan pizzas I’ve had, and I’ve had a lot over the years. The owner is Italian, so he knows his stuff. It was fun to take the pizza to the beach and watch the sunset! If you’re there during peak dinner hours, expect to wait. I think we waited about 45 minutes and we arrived about 7:10.

Pros: Vegan pizza options!, Takeaway

Cons: Wait time during peak hours

Great pizza

The pizza was delicious, however we had to wait for over 30 minutes for our order and I didn’t really think it was worth the wait.

Italian vegan pizza

Pizzas were available on different menu. Pizza was tasty. Place run by one man who takes orders and cooks the pizzas. Vegan cheese available.

Edit: pizzas on photos are half eaten, because we were hungry and forgot about photos

A lot of vegan options. I had the pizze végétalien which had a bit too much of vegan cheese but was still tasty. Be aware that it's only take away. The price is fine.

Didn’t live up to expectations

Pizza was alright, didn’t really meet expectations for an “italian” pizza restaurant and the vegan cheese was actually just slices of vegan cheddar cooked on a pizza base as you could see the squares.

Pros: The guy was nice, Well priced

Cons: Vegan cheese was just cheddar slices

Best vegan pizza I had! We were there around 7 to get pizza for dinner and waited about 10 minutes. It is in walking distance to the sea so we could enjoy our still hot pizzas there.

Pros: 5 vegan pizzas with juicy vegan cheese, near the sea for a dinner with view, fresh made and delicious

Cons: just take away , when it’s crowded you might wait a little bit

Delicious Pizza

I had the champignons pizza without the arugula or vegan cheese. The owner was very accommodating and even gave me extra of the other ingredients to compensate. 5/5

Pros: Clearly marked vegan options, Delicious and Speedy

Five star pizzas

Excellent pizza paste and great (vegan) pizza combinations
I especially love the vegan focaccia
Pity that we can’t award five stars to non 100% vegan restaurants; a bit discriminating if you ask me. Where’s the love ?

I would give 5 stars if I could

I was craving for pizza so bad that I had to try this place. There are at least 5 vegan pizzas options and the foccacias can be made vegan if you ask, so half of the offer is vegan, which is great. I chose the aubergine/eggplant one (10.5€), it was delicious.
I took the fidelity card of course 😉

Pros: Great vegan options, the vegan cheese is really good

Cons: No seating area but, the beach is 2 minutes away, by walk

Vegan Pizza!!!!

Absolutely great pizzas and they home deliver, (via Uber eats), or you can take away.
With so many vegan options making up almost half of the menu---5 pizzas and now a lasagne!
This is fantastic progress for a non - vegan pizzaria in the area.
I have been familiar with Da Francesco‘s for a while now, but had actually never tried the pizzas before.
All the veggies were, I believe, pre grilled and really tasty and they use a generous amount of vegan cheese too.
During the lockdown in France this Spring, Da Francesco has teamed up with one of my favourite vegan restaurants in Nice, 'Utopia'.
Utopia are supplying homemade vegan lasagne and some desserts, including cookies, their delicious vegan chocolate cheese cakes, and a few other choices.
You have to check on the day what is available.
I’ll certainly be ordering again during the lockdown and in the future. As far as I’m aware this is the only Pizzaria in Nice offering vegan pizzas with vegan cheese.

Pros: Almost half the menu vegan , Currently selling vegan desserts , Centrally located

Excellent homemade pizza

This place really is awesome. The guy has been running it for 30 years and the vegan menu is great. The cheese is perfect, the veggies are generous and fresh and the base is well-cooked but not black. Go and eat it on a beach at the sea😄Highly recommended!

Amazing pizza!!

The pizza was so good! There were 5 vegan options. It’s a very small place as stated before but he makes it in front of you and it was very fast. My boyfriend isn’t vegan and he even thought it was good. The chef doesn’t speak much english but he speaks enough to know what needs to be vegan

Pros: Vegan cheese, Lots of vegetables
