Great Italian style tapas

We called in to this great wee place while working in nice for a week. I must confess french is not my strong point.

We walked here after reading the excellent reviews on TripAdvisor. However, upon arriving we got terrible news: the restaurant had been rented out for the night! We pleaded and they agreed to let us sit in one of the two seats outside. Once the party who'd rented the place out arrived, I understood their initial hesitation at seating us: it... More

Fantastic meal on our first night in Nice! Not what we were expecting but the food was great. Make sure to order the truffled egg dish. Very small restaurant so get there early. We got there at 8 and after we sat down they started turning people away. Highly recommend you do the tapas.

However we choose the tapas and sampled the 7 dishes on offer. These were of a very high standard and included baked eggs with truffle, seared... More

Alto is superb, it's tiny, but so worth a visit. The food is impeccable, and fresh from the market everyday! We ate here on our 2nd last night, which was a shame we waited so long to visit, as we would have ate here again. The egg truffle is as everyone says, just amazing, a taste sensation. The menu is...
