Incredible Italian food again, and this time again in the Carré d’Or. Le Bacchus serves Italian food, really good Italian food in more than generous amounts in large bowls, lavished with lashings of generous parmesan cheese, in a relaxed unpretentious restaurant. We went back more than once, and came away equally satisfied each time.
You have a choice of risotto with grilled scallops or parma in napoletana sauce or a grilled filet served with fries amongst many other equally tempting items on the menu. Dessert was the house tiramisu. We stuck with what we enjoyed and walked back to our apartment after a truly enjoyable meal. Like the other restaurants to be found in the Carré d’Or, it too, was far from the madding crowds of Old Town, and with that limited in the number of foreign accents you heard around you. The terrace seating makes for a better dining experience. After the meal the waiter always offers rounds of limoncello which we enjoyed enough the first time around, but graciously passed the second time. The restaurant makes for a delightful change from the tourist-ridden restaurants of Nice.
