We’ve eaten here several times and have always enjoyed the experience. The food and service are both excellent. We had made a reservation several weeks earlier, and they gave us a nice table. We started with coupes de champagne to celebrate our good fortune to have attended a number of conferences in Monte Carlo over the years and to have... More

We were very entertained by the incredibly friendly and personal service. Very good food, at a reasonable price for the area. Would happily dine there again.

I tried this restaurant twice in the same day, by chance, as I had business lunch and dinner. Restaurant itself is somewhat out of the epicenter of Monte Carlo (i.e. Casino Square), but not too far away, but involves a walk downhill (or uphill on way back). Staff is very attentive and good, atmosphere nice and even it is in... More

The service was great. We tried lobster gnocchi and lasagne bolognese. The lobster gnocchi both of us liked but the lasagne bolognese had nothing special at all and is with 16 euro totally overpriced. Lobster gnocchi and wine was very good and recommendable!

Another great Monaco favorite, busy place, with a nice terrace. Lovely Italian food, beautiful antipasto selection, and in season, they always have gorgeous white truffles, awesome on pasta! They unfortunately cut their menu and very substantially hike their prices during the RV onslaught! Only fair...

I eat here once a year. It changed hands a while ago but was still an old favourite. My heart sank when the this years menu's had Jacx's on the back but its a lot better than that. Decent, very generous portion Veal Milanese. Reasonable priced (for Monaco) bottle of Rosé. Good fresh fries. Not as an extensive menu as... More

I have been coming here for about 25 years! It is a must for my every very visit to Monaco. As good and Italian as ever. This is not a tourist restaurant and very much used by local residents.

been at this place a few times but now it just too much. They always end up beeing more expensive then you planned.... This time we just had it. My wife and her girlfriend got the buffet as a starter. As they where not as hungry as the other in the party they wanted to keep the juicy vegies apart... More
