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.

We have enjoyed the cuisine, service and staff for business & personal dinners in 2013/2015. Consistently great! Nice wine list, We enjoy eating in the outdoor covered area as there are amble heaters. Within walking distance from Le Merdien. We will return.

I am so happy I tried this restaurant. The food is proper italian cuisine. The quality of the ingredients is perfect and the staff is so welcoming. Obviously it is not cheap but this is Monaco but it is cheaper than Cafe de Paris by far!

We went there after being recommended by the driver we had. It’s a strange location, sort of underneath a flyover, but very good inside. The food was great and very well priced. The appeal for me though, being an F1 fan, was the photos on the wall of all the people that have been there over the years, including Baron... More
