Oh my god the egg!!!!!

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.

pretty small place, but outstanding food and welcoming staff. we had tapas from the board for two, my son had a pizza. Freshly made food and a good wine, what else can you ask for? Good value for money spent, get there early or book a table, it is popular!

We visited on our first night in Nice. The restaurant has approx 30 covers with limited outside seating. As temperatures were approx 30c with no air con it made for a very warm experience. 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...

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 experience. The pizzas looked phenomenal but... 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
