The food is good, I had the fish John Dory. it was grilled and not dry. The scenic view and the outline of lights on the coasts adds to the ambiance m full packed in summer evening.

At La Trattoria the staff is doing exactly what they are supposed to do but they aren't very warm about it. You as a guest are paying to be there and for some reason I was never able to forget that. The view is stunning. And of course Alain Ducasse's name is on the door. The food was good, it... More

What a way to spend a last evening in Monte Carlo...sitting under the grand canopy with great friends, a fine meal, the no quit view and impeccable service!

La trattoria is Alain Ducasse's Italian offering in Monaco. For reasons I don't understand some of our fellow residents don't like it dismissing it as 'Frenchmen doing Italian'!! I think it's excellent and the Ducasse spin on the Italian 'standards' really works for me (easily beating the awful Cipriani). The service is great too and the sommeliers super friendly and...

Great atmosphere and beautiful surrounding. Excellent service. However, food and menu wasn't interesting, too simple and the cookies served with the coffee were very bad!

Lovely restaurant in Monaco with an awesome view! Good service, good wine and great food.... Trattoria in Italian means "home food" and of course when you travel around Italy these kind of restaurants and very friendly, family feeling and have relatively cheap prices. Not really the same price range (count about 100 EUR per person for food and wine).... But... More

I was pleasantly surprised to find the food simple, but exceptional. I love Italian food and we were not disappointed. The setting was exceptional and the service, it was exactly what was expected and needed; polite, attentive and they left us alone. This is the restaurant that I recommend you have to go to in Monte Carlo! You will not... More

It is a restaurant understatement, in appearance simple and easy, with a breathtaking view towards the west, Monaco lights up in front of your eyes as you dine (if you start early). Excellent food is expected and is guaranteed and the icing on the cake is the outstanding service, attentive to detail and alert while not intrusive. To re-visit more... More

Vacationing in southern France with the whole family, my wife and I decided to take a ''48 hours leave'' and go to Monaco for a romantic gateway. As it was my wife first time here, we wanted to make the best of it and picked the highly touted Ducasse restaurant for our evening. It goes without saying that we had... More

As locals it is always kind of an adventure to visit a restaurant in the country we love so much. Sometimes we are rather demanding, we dislike being seen as tourists (bless them for visiting beautiful Monaco) and the choice of restaurants here is overwhelming. We (my fiancé and future mother-in law) decided for La Trattoria, because we did not... More
