Description: Our Italian restaurant Il Carpaccio is the only Michelin-star Italian restaurant in Paris. It first opened its doors 30 years ago, and has since established itself as a true institution. Drawing on his heritage, Chef Roberto Rispoli gives a very personal interpretation of traditional family recipes from Italy's many regions, using the best and freshest Italian produce. Originally from Pompei near Naples, Roberto has revived Il Carpaccio under the direction of Executive Chef Laurent Andre, with superstar pastry chef Pierre Herme bringing classic Italian desserts to a whole new level, and Head Sommelier Manuel Peyrondet (Meilleur Ouvrier de France and Best Sommelier in France) sharing his passion for Italian wines. The intimate dining room draws on a Sicilian baroque style with an extravagant shell decor on the walls, opening onto a lovely glass conservatory drenched in light. Two contemporary artists have created unique works of art that add to the Italian theme.

“Subtle and refined Italian restaurant, in a 5-star hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2013

Business lunch with a long-time partner. We chose Il Carpaccio based on good reviews and discovered that between our booking and our lunch, the place had been awarded its 1st "Michelin star".
We indulged ourselves in a 3-course lunch and really enjoyed the food, which was subtle and refined, both in taste and presentation (the restaurant menu is available on the website of the Royal Monceau Hotel and a quick look at it will be more helpful than a long description of our lunch).
The desserts have been designed by Pierre Hermé and are especially interesting (the "infiniment citron" was splendid and above the "pannacotta").
Service was very professional and helpful but maybe not as quick as you would expect for a business lunch. A majority of the staff is Italian and this gives a pleasant "local feeling" to the atmosphere. We had lunch in the "winter garden" of the Royal Monceau, which was very nice.
In brief, food quality, service, atmosphere and prices are fully consistent with the brand new star awarded by the "Guide Michelin". I will come back !

Wonderful Italian food, not what I expected to be eating in Paris but outstanding and well worth a visit. I'm sure the hotel will be getting Michelin stars very soon.

“Perfection!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2013

What a meal! Staff were excellent, food fantastic, wine surperb and a great experience. Our meal lasted over 4 hours and the staff were happy to chat about the food and wine - they clearly knew their stuff. Its a lovely environment to eat and talk.

They are hoping to get a Michelin star this year - in our view they deserve it!
