I wanted to give Four, five..

The pizza was superb, but as noted by others, the service is very sloppy. The place was animated and popular, and street side tables were good

Great restaurant but a little out of the tourist beat. Once found never forgotten. Food is great and Owner is friendly as are the staff. The restaurant serves very good pizza's which are very popular but as I am not a pizza man I prefer the fillet of beef with pepper sauce is excellent. Salad Nicoise is also very good... More

We love this friendly restaurant just down the road from Garibaldi square. The pizza and pasta dishes are excellent. The foods and the wine are very reasonably priced. The atmosphere is warm and friendly. The service is outstanding. I would highly recommend this great little local restaurant. We try to eat here at least once or twice every time we... More

Well priced and good attentive service. My recommendation however is to stick with the salads and basic pasta dishes as well as the simple desserts. The Milanese dishes and others like Lasagne and eggplant Parmigiana are not so good or particularly Italian. Good wine and friendly atmosphere

Menu prices remain reasonable but the quality and portion sizes seem to have reduced. Last went for some pasta but came away still hungry. Chocolate mousse is the best in Nice but mine had a massive air hole in the dish so technically I only had a half portion. A bit more attention to detail needed and a bit of... More

Au Vieux Four is a small restaurant/pizzeria frequented mainly by locals. It is a very cosy restaurant especially for winter. The pizza is delicious and so are the salads and other dishes. Although it is in a residential area, it is very close to Lace Garibaldi and the Port. It is very well served both by buses (3, 7, 9... More

In a side street between Place Garibaldi and the harbor, le Vieux Four is a small restaurant filled with locals. Friendly service, unpretentious atmosphere, plat du jour €9.50, 3-course menu €16. Unbeatable, excellent and a wonderful change from the usual tourist mangers.
