We were here to have a lunch. They had a lunch menu which was 18 euro. As starter you had a choice between caprese or buffet to choose from maybe 20 different kind of italian bites, from simple but good olives, ancho fish, vegetables and so on. For the main course, there was a choice between 3 different dishes. It... More

Our concierge recommended we try here for a more casual dinner spot during our stay. It ended up being one of our favorite spots on our trip! The staff was incredibly friendly and helpful, the patio was perfect for people watching and the food was fantastic! The spaghetti vongole and torteli with spinach and ricotta were both really good, but... More

Food very good but the noise of the traffic somewhat off putting and the exhaust smell overpowering. Food served in very large quantities and not too sophisticated

This restaurant is excellent, the food, ambience and service are superb, I love the steaks, the pasta dishes are awesome, but their starter of Mussels in a spicy broth are to die for, prices are reasonable for the area and it is my first choice to dine when in Monaco, but busy periods require a booking, I have been disappointed...

The spaghetti vongole & bottarga was one of the best meals I have ever had. It was one of the highlights of my short stay in Monte Carlo. They have a great wine list with some good classic and reasonably priced Italian wines. A must visit.

Delicious food and wine. Charming waiter who could not do more for you. We ate a bit early as we were flying out the next morning so that great buzzing atmosphere was just starting to get going as we were leaving. However if you prefer space around you I would advise to eat earlier as tables are very close together.
