We went to Monaco this week and had dinner here a few nights. Really good food and not too pricy for Monaco! The staff were lovely. The owner came over each night and said thank you for coming. We will go back next time in Monaco. It was our daughters birthday when we were in Monaco & even though we... More

This place defines mediocrity. Tripadvisor raters claim this to be a top 10 place in an area full of great food, but this is not the case. The food is average Italian at best, the service was "ok," and we were rushed out of the restaurant even though no one was there. Also, we expected a cool ambiance because we... More

The restaurant was full of fruit flies. When questioned, we were told that every restaurant in the area suffers with that. We live in monaco and know this to be untrue. Our starter was bruschetta, which arrived after a long wait and was extremely boring, no taste and nothing special about it. My husbands main course was small and extremely... More

Went for breakfast and although not a cheap option, the buffets are to die for, you can choose from almost everything you could think of and could not think of...and enjoying breakfast with those amazing carpets, walls, columns and ceilings...its was worth every penny and more

A bit cramped in space but the food more than made up for that. Perfectly grilled baby squid, unexpectedly light stuffed squash blossoms, linguini prepared to masterful perfection with crab and served in the crab shell, melt in your mouth dorado (fish special). We didn't try the pizza but most of the other tables had pizza and they all looked... More

Owner refused to replace a wine we didn't like He offered a glass of wine instead but at the end charged us both for the wine and the glass Bottom line: terrible service

This is a local neighborhood restaurant with a very relaxed atmosphere. Italian home cooking, good pasta and pizzas, reasonable wine list, very friendly staff.

This restaurant was within walking distance from the Le Meridien where my wife and I stayed. Not only was it a quaint, cozy restaurant...it was simply the best Italian my wife and I have ever had! The owner made recommendations for dishes and wines that were spot on! He (and other staff) were incredibly friendly, and they made the experience... More

I met the owner of this place randomly so he showed me his sweet little trattoria pizzaria. It was a nice low key place off the beaten path but still not far from all the Monaco royalty and excitement. It is a bit more affordable than the big fancy restaurants near the shopping, casino area, and port restaurants. Of course... More

Great value for the money. We had the antipasto misto which was a hit particularly because of the stuffed zucchini flowers and arancini. My husband's spaghetti alle vongole were excellent so were my tagliatelle with artichokes! Need to go back to try the pizza which looked delicious! Great service too! Need to reserve though as it is a tiny place.
