I'm pretty much a regular here; once you've tasted their pizzas, it's unlikely you'd go elsewhere other than for convenience's sake (if, for example, you're stranded on the other side of town and experiencing a hypoglycaemic attack). Nice is blessed with good pizzerias; Cresci in the town centre is famous for its signature crescent-shaped pizzas, Bar du Coin in the... More

We visit Nice often and always call in for the world's most delicious pizza in our opinion. Love the new décor and it still retains such a friendly and welcoming atmosphere. Excellent service and values for money. For us visiting this eatery is a must.

We eat at Au Vieux Four every time we are in Nice. Still the best pizza in town cooked in the wood fired oven. Very good carpaccio. House wine good price. English spoken if you need it but lots of French frequent this restaurant. Give it a go. Up to you to find it. Not far from Place Garibaldi.

Pizzas - Very good! Flammekueche - Excellent!! Dishes - Tried the steak and fries and it was simply delicious and cooked to perfection (the Chef really knows how to cook the beef as the customer wants it). Fries are homemade. Tried the Flammekueche and they were almost as good as my granny's! (and she is a real Alsatian) :-). Basically,... More

Au Vieux Four is a fairly small place, simple and not pretentious. For an evening meal, we ordered one Quatre Saisons (4 Seasons) pizza to share between the two of us. They served it on two plates (nice touch). It was plenty to eat, and was very good with plenty of artichoke hearts. For dessert we split a Choco/cafe Liegois... More

We had just arrived in Nice from the airport and we were starving. As we wondered the streets looking for anywhere that was open, everyone told us we were too late and they'd stopped serving. That was until we found this restaurant and the owner David who saw that we clearly looked very lost and hungry, and although he was... More
