Very tasty food, comes at a price

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... read 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.

This is a very nice family style, reasonably priced Italian restaurant. The staff, all Italian, are very friendly and helpful. Even if you are just passing by, they always acknowledge you with a friendly 'hello'. The pasta dishes are very good. Their lasagna is maybe the best you'll find in Monaco. Great artichoke salads. Everything is very good. And the... More

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.
