13 Rue Bavastro, 06000 Nice, France
Visiting Nice and never tasting socca is like visiting France and never having champagne. A local specialty, socca is a chick-pea flatbread sold all over Nice in restaurants, cafes and special socca stands. If you would like to taste what is considered the best socca in town, Chez Pipo is your place. Going to Chez Pipo for socca would also give you a nod of approval from the locals, read “you have good taste”.
An institution in Nice, Chez Pipo is located in the port area. They do not take reservations and are always extremely busy. If you would like to sit outside in the summer, make sure you plan for it, otherwise the wait might be long. A portion of socca and a glass of rose is all you need for a pleasant appero, but they also serve other local specialties like pissaladiere, tapenades, etc. Not to be missed!
