We love an old fashioned italian, most of the menu I have tried and all dishes are never a disappointment! Recently they are doing a roast on Sunday to cater for the large british community. And it has been a winner, very tasty traditional roast. Followed by a nice italian dessert and lemoncello. Advisable to book as popular.

Recommended by concierge @ Fairmont. I arrived on early side. Sort of a "rushed" feeling. I wanted Beef Carpaccio to start & the waiter kept pushing for a main course which I did not want to order until I finished the starter. The Carpaccio was OK--interesting because served with 2 mustards. The Parmesan was not fresh & the beef was... More

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.
