My party of six loved this restaurant! The service was great, and my waitress was very informed about being gluten free as I have celiac disease. There was gluten free bread and I got socca and eggplant parm and both were delicious! I didn't get sick and there were so many gf options! Will be back.

The food was ok, probably 3 out of 5 but that may be a bit on the high side. A meatball appetizer was quite good, nicely seasoned and good texture. Chicken Milanese was nicely prepared - crispy outside and yet not overcooked. A lamb and portobella entrée was far overcooked and should have been sent back however our waitress did not return. No one asked us how our meals were. She must have been having a bad day and that can happen but someone else should have helped out and checked on us. We didn't have dessert because we finally had enough of having to ask for someone to help us. I'd certainly not recommend this restaurant.

Gluten Free! Good options for people with celiac or a gluten intolerance. The gluten free bread -as a starter - is solid. The pizza was average. Service was fine.

Was there last Friday night with a friend. We were trying to decide between 4 restaurants on the same block. The other three were very crowded and there was a wait so we settled on Nizza. When we walked in Nizza we were seated at a very tiny table for two sandwiched in between larger tables. I ordered spaghetti and meatballs and my friend order the veal with cooked greens (swisschard i think). Both dinners were terrible (2 meatballs that tasted like they were the frozen kind and one small piece of sausage with a very bad taste and jar sauce / veal was fatty like and strange tasting and the brown sauce was disgusting.) I was so disappointed in the experience - now i know why there was a wait in the other restaurants. I will say that our server was very good. Just a heads up............

I'm baffled by the 1-star reviews; this place is great! In town for a work conference, my co-worker and I went to Nizza for dinner and sampled an array of wonderful bites. We shared a variety of plates and each had a small dish of our own. The socca (chickpea pancake with sage and pecorino), which was very good, though not "crispy" as described. The ceasar salad was very good and nicely sized for the price. The roasted cauliflower was well cooked (not too soft) and well seasoned. I had the polpettone for my main. The meatballs were flavorful, tender, well seasoned and the polenta was beautifully silky. My co-worker had the night's special which was a handmade pasta with a light pesto and she was thrilled. The service was excellent and we thoroughly enjoyed every bite.

After a full day walking all around NYC my boyfriend and I decided to stop at Nizza for dinner. The service was excellent however the food was absolutely TERRIBLE!!! We ordered a Caesar salad, calamari appetizer and a pizza to share. The salad was ridiculous. The dressing had very little flavor and was tossed over whole leaves of Romaine placed on a plate. A five year old could have made this salad. The calamari was greasy and rubbery. The pizza however, was the WORST! First of all it was burned and should never have been served. Secondly the toppings were barely present. Maybe one ounce of sausage, hardly any cheese and the alleged broccoli raab was barely visible on the pizza. It was extremely dry and as already stated burned on the bottom. We were so hungry we did eat it but we would never go back or recommend it to anyone. Save your time and your money. There are plenty of other places on 9th avenue that are much better!

With great outdoor seating and decor, Nizza is a good choice for Italian food in Hell's Kitchen. As a starter, the calamari was great with a crispy exterior and a slightly spicy marinara sauce. The gnocchi al forno was delicious and reminded me of a fancy mac n cheese. The chocolate cake was a good choice to end the meal. All in all, Nizza is a great choice but nothing extraordinary.

Lovely restaurant- beautiful food, gorgeous wine and amazing service. Perfect for 2 meat eaters (one low gi), and 2 vegetarians (one gluten free). Couldn't have asked for more!
