We had dinner with our teenage son and arrived early enough to get the last unbooked table. We had the tapas and dessert formula and my son had tapas and pizza. The food was excellent with a choice of 6 tapas dishes and 4 plats de jour which we didn't try. The pizza was also good.

So happy to find this place, we went twice! Chris and his small team are fantastic, it's a small resturant so do book ahead or get in early. The Tapas was excellent with a few changes each night and the pizzas are superb. There was a minor mix up in taking my pizza home one night but that was my... More

A good pizza place at a reasonable price. Nicely done out inside and good service. Waiters speak English Only fault was that it was pretty much empty when we went arrived for 8pm on a Tuesday so lacked a bit of atmosphere

High quality pizza and good French Italian tapas. Varying a la carte dishes and good options for set menus. Service is very friendly. Make sure to reserve table.

Believe the hype. My wife and I tried 6 tapas plus dessert and they were all well thought out interesting dishes. Loved most of them. They were all worth trying. The chef didn't try to overwhelm you with over the top or new flavors. He just trusted that you would appreciate his approach. The steak tartare with arugula and Parmesan... More

We absolutely loved it, best food and service we had in Nice! We had the tapas and every dish was really fresh and unique and great value. The staff was so nice and fun and even had a shot with us for the Icelandic football team! Loved that it was a little bit outside the main area so you got... More

Everything from start to finish was outstanding. We were the only customers on an evening in which the surrounding restaurants were packed -- and everyone else was missing out on Alto. The menu changes daily but each of the 3 tapas and the pizza were sensational. Also, the owner was a very pleasant person! We will be back.

We have been going to Alto for two years now and we tend to go every six weeks or so Just to be clear that doesn't make us unadventurous but on the contrary we eat out a lot, an awful lot and we both work in the hospitality industry myself as a private chef with 25 hrs experience of cooking...

We ate here on the last night of our holiday in Nice and were very happy with our choice! Between us we tried 6 tapas the highlight of which was the tasty truffle eggs and a very fresh beef tartare. The service was exceptionally friendly and we were made to feel very relaxed and welcomed. A great choice for a... More
