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

We have been to this restaurant a few times now after discovering it during a work trip about 6 years ago. The menu is so very unusual, nothing like a typical tapas menu that would would see in the UK. I would urge you to find it and try for yourself, you will be heading on to TA to write... More

We visited one evening whilst on a weekend break to Nice. The decor inside was very cool and it was nice to see a selection of local products to purchase. We found the staff to be very friendly and they also spoke English which was a great help as our French is a little rusty. We went for the 1... More

We were lucky enough to just turn up early evening and get a table for 2. Had the tapas menu and husband had the pizza. All absolutely delicious. Really recommend the egg tapas with truffle - exquisite. All very good portions too. 3 tapas did the trick. Pizza was beyond delicious too. Service could not have been more friendly and... More
