We visited this restaurant on our first night in Nice and really enjoyed the whole experience. The waiter was very welcoming and talked us through the tapas on offer. The pizzas looked so appetizing we decided to go for them. My white pizza with fresh tomatoes,mozzarella and rocket was excellent. The red house wine was superior to any others we... More

Visited this restaurant for a relatively late dinner. The pizzas were huge and tasted very nice as they had quite good ingredients. A salada caprese was also really good as it had the tasty coeur de boeuf tomatoes and real buffalo mozzarella! The waiter/chef was very attentive and pleasant!

Had lunch, two tapas (more than enough) and coffee, good quality food and very friendly staff. The chef also came and talked about the food. Will come back soon.

Very expensive for what it was didn't get told about menu deals and food was nothing like a tapas! Best part was when a flasher nearly put it in my meal what looked like a chipolata.

We went to ALTO on recommendation from a friend.... we were a table of 7. The service was fabulous, we had the special menu for the evening and were not dissappointed - just over fed! We ate so much food it was unbelievable! We had a vegetarian and an extremely fussy eater in the group - it was no problem... More

I have been going here regularly since it opened. Great food and friendly service. Excellent value. I recommend the egg with truffle which I get every time. The rest of the menu changes regularly so you're always in for a surprise, but it's all great.

Brought by a friend couple, we chose this restaraunt initially as a last minute option but actually this restaurant has been an awesome surprise! Very good dishes very well cooked by the chef, that mixed the traditional tapas with Italian and French food styles. Special mention for octopus tempura and the dish of scampis. Very good service and a reasonable... More

We choose eggs with black truffles. The powder was black but has not a black truffle taste. The other tapas ware not tasty and the tiramissu, for desert, was a... More

Over dinner at Alto, my two friends and I - on a short break to Nice - discussed how we never write restaurant reviews but would feel compelled to do so after the amazing experience we enjoyed here. The chef used inventive twists on traditional tapas to create some exceptional dishes, including octopus tempura, Piemont cheese with honey and crushed... More
