“Amazing meal!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2013

We visited this restaurant two times on our trip while staying at the Frattoria la Torre hotel, and neither time disappointed. Our first visit was our anniversary, and they made a special effort to ensure it was a special meal for us. The atmosphere was amazing - we sat at a table on the patio, overlooking the town below, with live music playing in the background. We had a 4 course meal accompanied by wine, and each and every course was delicious. The carpaccio and the fresh vegetable strudel were amazing (the strudel contained vegetables from the farm's garden). The pasta was also amazing and the beef and porcini mushroom secondi was amazing. A delicious meal, with excellent service!
Our second visit was also delicious. Great service, and delicious food!

“Nice place for dinner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2012

This restaurant is located in a hotel surrounding but yet separate. While there was a bus of tourists the night we ate there, the food was superb. The chef (a woman) was very charming and her cuisine quite innovative. It was an excellent surprise, although the reservation is a must and personnel of the hotel are not always happy to answer questions about the restaurant. But we persevered and it was worth the visit.

“Good atmosphere. Very friendly personnel. Fine dishes.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2012 via mobile

Being in the vicinity of Montecarlo somebody recommended the place. The recommendation was spot on. We had 3 different antipasti, of which the melanzane mousse was the most special one. Even the most critical daughter was impressed by this starter. The primi were pretty good (they really know how the cook the melanzane here as the melanzane a parmeggiano was also wonderful). But, the wine: the Esse 2006 was the absolute winner of the night. What a wine!
We had a great night, despite the not too interesting view the restaurant is worth a visit!
