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

So much potential but really disappointing. A very nice restaurant with a beautiful view. The restaurant was talked up by many people and came highly recommended. The appetizers were a rip off. It was a lot of money for just a tiny amount of food. And none of it was really great. We had fish. The Dover sole was adequate... More

Wonderful location, nice ambiance, beautiful setup and good service. Unfortunately the food does not have a character and is below expectations and so several times.

The restaurant offers great views over the sea and city. Located a 15 min walk along the sea from teh Casino, it's worth trying out! We all had appetizers (3 each and we especially appreciated the Vitello tonnato and the Parmigiani). Followed by starters where the spaghetti and the risotto could please us the most. Best mains were gamberoni, Saint-Pierre... More

Alain Ducasse is one of the best chefs in the world so rest assured you won't regret going to this casual Italian. Polished service, delicious food, breathtaking view of the bay. Pizza and risotto are to die for. Relatively reasonable prices--it is in Monte-Carlo after all.

It is at the premium location just beside sea. Started from 7 dish appetizers. All tasty. A lot of seafoods are used in Seafood pasta which was great. Lamb was very nice, too. Ordered only half bottle of wine but when it is served it is too cold to drink red wine. It become much better when it become warmer.... More
