The best egg tapas in the world (probably!)

A classic example of why trip advisor works .. We'd have never found or set foot in this gem of a place without having read the reviews and hunting it down. Small and personal, the restaurant was possibly understaffed (one v busy guy trying to serve all tables), but overall it was a great... read more

This was just what we were after. Cooked by one of two owners and served by the other owner. The menu was small and perfect, tapas with a more extensive and superb pizza menu. The menu is different every day based on market ingredients - but always included on the menu baked egg with truffle oil served with crusty bread.... More

Two words. Truffle Egg. Omg my mouth is watering just thinking about it. My husband and I found this spot and although it was quite far away from our hotel, we braved the walk and we were not disappointed. Simple menu but enough options available. Tapas style so you get small plates. But the prices are reasonable so load up... More

Well worth the journey off the beaten track to this place! The service was excellent, the waiter gave helpful recommendations and helped give the place its chilled out atmosphere. Food was delicious, I had artichoke ravioli tapas followed by pizza and a really tasty tiramisu for 23€. I'd defiantly recommend.

The food was excellent as well as the staff and service. Very good preparation and was very close to our rented Apt. Jay recommended Alto and it was well worth it.

Limited menu which is fine with me. It means everything is prepared fresh. We had 2 tapas each and a dessert for €14 accompanied by a half litre of excellent vin rose for €9. The eggs cocotte with black truffle tapenade was excellent as was the fillet of sea bream. My wife had ravioli stuffed with sea bass and served... More

Super friendly and helpful staff. The food quality and price is proof that you can eat outside of the touristy Old Town area. Must try the eggs with truffle!!

My husband and I had dinner at Alto Resto and it was delicious! We had the hotel call ahead (roughly 45 minutes ahead) for a reservation and was glad we did--several parties were turned away for lack of tables. The food was delicious and the atmosphere was relaxed. I had the Bufalina pizza and my husband had tapas. Everything was... More
