Something of a local institution, this pizzeria's pleasant decor, great food, reasonable prices and a relaxed atmosphere have made it one of the town's favourite eateries. The dining area is spread over two floors (with an attractive mezzanine), and there's also a terrace. The restaurant seats almost 400, and while it gets pretty noisy, the pizzas are always good - no matter what time of day. Spaghetti and fresh pasta is also available.
We went here while in Cannes for a festival and the service was ridiculously bad. We set up a group dinner and when we called or went in to discuss our needs the manager was rude and pretended not to speak our language, even though we heard him speak it to others. Once on-site, the service was incredibly slow...to the point that we were helping get food out to our group that was just sitting on the back table. The servers were rude and unhelpful. Yes the food was great, but the service made the experience horrendous.
I spent three weeks in the Suquet. (Old Cannes) for the film festival 2008
I had to have pizza 3-4 times a week. That good.
A month later, I went to New York City looking for the best pizza. Absolutely nothing came close.
I have had pizza in Beverly Hills -- any possible restaurant. In Italy, In Germany, ... This place is about the Food. It is not about the sitting, waiting, or .... If you are spoiled in USA, you wont get service in France, anywhere, anyway.
If you want to taste the Best pizza that you could ever have, go there. And, always give blessing to whatever it is that you are eating.

This is the best pizza, bar none. I would recommend this restarant to everyone. I'm not sure if it's the crust (thin and crisp but not crunchy), the tomato sauce (sweet, full flavoured and authentic tasting - not sour or bitter), the olives (tiny, briny and with pits), or the cheese (not at all like North American mozzarella - can't even begin to describe its luscious melting quality and wonderful, rich taste) that makes this pizza so fabulous. My boyfriend is from this area and this is his favourite casual restaurant (he recommends the onion pizza, while my favourite is simply plain with olives). The pizzas are baked in stone ovens, and I expect this is part of the the reason why they are sooooo good.
The service ranges from good to very good, and although you generally have to wait to be seated, isn't the waiting important? If you were able to sit right away, it wouldn't be worth the wait. The prices are reasonable (remember, this is Europe).
Bottom line: If you are ever in Cannes, run, don't walk down to La Pizza.
I liked La Pizza, it is friendly, food beautifully presented, not expensive. Either for a couple, or a group of people. Mainly the evening time is nice, although I went during the day and it was equally as nice.
I was sat in my hotel in Cannes doing a search for 'pizza restaurant cannes' and found this Yahoo Travel review.
The reviews were all positive so I thought I'd pop along. The restaurant is fantastic. From memory, prices were reasonable. Service was super and efficient. I particularly liked the way they made notes of what you were having on the (paper) table cloths.
The pizzas are phenomenally good. Whenever I'm in Cannes, I go for one. Or two.
La Pizza is a fun restaurant - the food may not be "exquisite" but it is good value and the Pizza's are amazing. Nowhere I have ever been comes close to delivering a Pizza as good as the ones I ate here.
Nice position on the marina, nice at night in summer with lovely busy atmosphere. Great for families, kids seem to love the place. Staff are usually very busy, but usually fast to help.
I would recommend this to anyone who wants a great Pizza, the do other foods very well also, but this really is a "Pizza restaurant".
The menu at Mère Besson changes every day of the week. It's L'Estouffade à la Provençale on Mondays and L'Aïado
on Tuesdays. Relish some great Bourride (fish) on Wednesdays and Le Lapereau Farci aux Herbes de Provence on Thursdays. ...
Named after the famous Italian volcano, this restaurant is located between two prestigious hotels: the Carlton and the Martinez. Its
cuisine is bursting with Italian flavours. Start with Antipasti (similar to French hors d'oeuvres), consisting of cold meats, peppers ...
One of Cannes' best known and most popular, cafe terraces is always jam packed, come summer or winter (when it's
heated). Its success is due to the attentive service provided, an attractive menu of Italian and Mediterranean dishes, ice ...
