Loved!

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... read more

My wife and I popped in one weekday evening at 20.30 - the restaurant (which is small with a beautifully tiled floor) was full, but the lovely front-of-house man told us he could fit us in at 21.30. We returned at 21.30, and he recalled us (and kept his promise). We each ate one tapas (starter), one excellent pizza and... More

Although I had quite enjoyed all the local food here in Nice, I was in need of some other cuisine and randomly chose to go to ALTO. They have a wonderful selection of pizzas and tapas. The waiter nicely translated the tapas menu, but I decided to go with the pizza. I can eat a lot and wasn't able to... More

It is always a pleasure to eat there. Their tapas are amazingly good and generous. The owner is very kind and enthusiast. You feel they love their job! Go for the tapas + desert formula. They always update their tapas list but keep some classics as the famous egg with truffle (don't miss it !) And the piemont melted cheese... More

This is a nice little Italian using good ingredients. Chef is clearly talented and service is friendly. They let us in even though the service hadn't started. We enjoyed a glass of wine in the meantime. It is a bit of a walk to get there but worth the effort.

Tapas and pizza were very tasty. And the waiter was very friendly. But the location was a bit difficult to find. I would like to be back again though.

The taste was fantastic. The waiter so kindly answered all of my questions about the food. I would definetly want to visit again with my... More

Evening meal on a business trip with three colleagues. The staff were absolutely fantastic, friendly and welcoming. He explained the menu, but no pressure to choose one thing or another. The menu was quite limited in terms of tapas, but obviously decided on that day. We choose the tapas & pizza & desert for 23 euros, which was great value.... More

We arrived in Nice yesterday evening and booked a nearby place through TripAdvisor and the Fork and it worked splendidly. We ordered two pizzas after recommendation from the server and it tasted wonderful. A really nice local and warm atmosphere 😄
