Good food (great pasta with truffels, when in season), nice staff, average look and feel so to say. It's also not too expensive for Monaco standards. The tiramisu is amazing here as well!

Pulcinella has changed hands and with it the standards have changed also. Normally I cannot "Rave On" about this establishment enough but on this occassion the service was mediocre and the staff we quite rude, food was also mediocre. I had the octopus carpaccio, King Prawns & a cheeseboard. Octopus was okay. King Prawns were bland. Cheeseboard was nice. Plates... More

This spot was quite busy on a Tuesday afternoon and looked good so we gave it a try. Very good service. We had two pasta dishes, along with great bread and complimentary bruschetta. The pasta was very good and prepared just right. We had Bolognese and pasta with clams. Nice lunch spot near the casino.

Had a superb veal Milanese and a good bottle of Cotes de Provence in this very popular haunt of the locals. Well recommended for a very good lunch- and they do good dinners as well, I expect.

Very much visited by locals and tourists alike, this italian eatery has a cosy feeling, service is prompt and friendly and the fresh pasta are very good. Meats and fish could be better but the quality is adequate for the relatively low prices for a Monaco restaurant in the middle of town.

Italian Restaurant with friendly staff. I was not impressed by the appearance of the interior, it is typical old fashioned Italian however the food was good quality. Not cheap but not overexpensive as Monte Carlo goes. Pleasant atmosphere and an obliging waiter made an enjoyable evening. We were offered a free digestive drink at the end of our meal, Lemocello,...

I like this restaurant, and always came back. This past year, it was under new management, although some of the old dishes were still available. I was able to get a plateful of my favorite mushroom - cèpes. Having earlier eyed some fresh trifola d'Alba Madonna with pasta at Alain Ducasse's Le Louis XV - at 300€ a plate, it... More

We spend out Valentines weekend in Monte Carlo as we have done for the past 13 years but we only found this restaurant last year. I made my reservation for Valentines night via email and although the weather was atrocious the welcome in the restaurant was wonderful. We were sat in the awning attached to the restaurant but with plenty... More

We where with a larger party- some folks came later - tables were added as needed and orders adjusted. My sea bass was fresh and perfectly prepared - not to dry but just moist enough.
