Returned again after several years

We returned here on a recent visit, remembering the stratino cheese pizza and a rough idea of the location. We were thrilled to dine here again. Even though the service was not the best, the food is amazing. The pizza is fabulous. We had the vegetable lasagna which was good too. The seafood dish... read more

I went with two friends. To be honest, they weren't completely satisfied with the food - but I won't let that influence my review. I had a pizza with parma ham, ruccola salat etc., and found it very good. The restaurant was a bit hot at the time, due to the temperature being about 30 degrees C. The air conditioning... More

I've been to Sfizio about half a dozen times and always come back for more. This is a great unpretentious little restaurant tucked along that small row if bars and restaurants along Rue de Portier. Very broad menu of traditional choices from across the Italian regions. Pasta is always cooked perfect al dente. Pizza is done well in a little... More

Firstly, leave room for the Profiteroles. Not what you imagine, these come in a large round dish and are balls of choux pastry smothered in the best cream you have ever tasted and topped with a beautiful chocolate sauce. The best desert I've tasted anywhere. For entré try the courgette flowers filled with mozzarella and anchovies. Delicious. The pastas are... More

To all of the Monaco diners... this place is not known for their ambience (located in an alley way in Monaco), not known for the best china and glasses or have the cosmopolitan scene.. but what it does have is great food. I read about this place on Tripadvisor and after a long day of walking and dressing up for... More

We liked everything about this small restaurant. We sat outside, had a charming server who spoke English, and was very accommodating. We ordered a pasta and a pizza. The spaghetti with mushrooms boletus edulis was fantastic. It is rare to see fresh porcini mushrooms as they are expensive and their season is short. The server did inform me that these... More

It's not everyday you find a restaurant in Monaco that offers great value as well as great food, but Lo Sfizio really does. On top of that the staff are very friendly, and the place itself is tastefully decorated. We had courgette flower fritters as a communal starter, and they were perfect, the beignet was crispy and the mozzarella oozed... More

Little bolt hole in a funny place, but we sat outside and enjoyed very good food, excellent service and very nicely priced and tasty wine. Very memorable evening.

Really good Italian food, nice atmosphere and good value. I can't recommend it too highly a lot better than others that are higher priced, walk past them to here.

I don't even know where to begin-- our experience at Lo Sfizio was just beyond amazing. The wait staff was great even during the lunch rush hour. We got the special for the day which was an eggplant mozzarella pasta and a funghi pizza. This was more than enough food for two people and SO DELICIOUS. I can't wait to... More
