“excellent pizza and pasta”
Reviewed 29 December 2013

There are lots of italian trattorias to choose from in Menton, just one mile from the Italian border, and most of them are fine, if not great. We really like "Al Vecchio Forno" because in our opinion it serves the best thin-crust, wood-fired pizza around. The fresh pasta are equally wonderful, service is quick and attentive, and prices reasonable. All around a great, casual choice for italian food in Menton.

“Average, good salade caprese”
Reviewed 11 August 2013

We had the Vecchio Forno pizza with sausage and a bunch of other ingredients (10 €). That was extremely average in every way. Cheap ingredients. The salade caprese starter (9,50 €) was very good, though. Good mozzarella. Salade mixte (5,50 €) was basic and ok, as it should be. We went in this restaurant at a very late hour, leaving at 01:00, still other people having good time in there at so late. No problem paying with a credit card (as another reviewer complained about a temporary issue with the machine). Don't expect anyting special, no high quality ingredients at Al Vecchio Forno (except for the mozzarella). Certainly the pizza is not special. But this restaurant will do its job if you're hungry at a late hour and need to eat, as was our case. The decoration is very average and service works.

“Enjoyable!”
Reviewed 17 April 2013

This restaurant is away from the more trendy beach area, near the old harbor. We loved the traditional decor and found the food quite good. Wonderful pizza. Seemed to serve locals. We stayed with the pizza and pasta choices but the fish looked great.
