Fascinated by the magic of cinema and a lover of celebration, Francis Cresci opened his iconic establishment in Cannes’ Vieux Port in 1960. A major player in the town, this colourful restaurant still has the warm and friendly atmosphere it had on opening.
Whether you're sat in the dining rooms decorated with photos of stars or on the terrace facing the port, you’ll always be able to enjoy a wealth of gourmet delights. The famous wood-fired oven helps to create a lively pizza with a unique taste, both crisp and soft with lashings of toppings, including cheese carefully selected from independent producers, as well as a divine apple tart to end the meal on a high.
La Pizza Cresci also offers a large selection of pasta dishes, lasagnes, salads, meat dishes, fish dishes and mussels, as well as artisan ice cream and homemade desserts.
Open every day non-stop from 11 am to 12:30 am and 2 am in high season.
The restaurant only accepts reservations for groups of 10 or more. Our restaurant can welcome groups of up to 120 people, with a dining room that can be completely booked for private use.
All our dishes are also available to take away.

What a lovely surprise to find an old-time place like this. From the moment we first stood in the restaurant, we were transported back in time. There was a lively and eclectic atmosphere, and a varied menu. The pizzas are done in a wood-fired oven in halves, but don’t worry, you will have enough as they are very generous. The desserts are also copious. A moment of joy worth sharing.

Very good value for money with a great view over Cannes’ port.

It’s simple. We’ve been returning here every year since we left the Côte d’Azur, and every year it’s been a treat. Sizeable pizzas, well presented. The waiters are super nice despite the amount of work they have to do. In Cannes, there’s La Croisette and La Pizza Cresci!

Despite the high number of guests, the service was quick. The pizzas were delicious, their half-moon shape being just right for leaving room for dessert. A must-visit restaurant in Cannes, I wholeheartedly recommend it.

A legendary restaurant, an excellent atmosphere from the moment we arrived. A warm welcome, efficient service, a nice menu, generous portions. Everything is delicious. We’ve come here as a couple, with family and with friends, and each time everything was perfect.

This is a restaurant with a strong reputation and deservedly so. The cuisine, mostly Mediterranean, is exquisite, savoury and deliciously seasoned. Here you’ll find all the flavours of our friend the Mediterranean. La Pizza Cresci is a must-visit place in Cannes where you need to go at least once to share in the secrets of successful cuisine.
