Super food, very fair prices, clean, service inside OK, perhaps not so friendly outside.

“Traditional Italian in Monaco.Once the staff understand that you are there to Enjoy their restaurant and do not treat them as se”
Reviewed January 11, 2012

As stated in my review title this restaurant delivers good quality at fair prices.They understand their food and wine and respond well to patrons who are similarly interested.A great alternative to the marque restaurants every review talks up.

“Has potential for better”
Reviewed November 28, 2011

From the beginning everything looked nice, effective and warm service, nice seating to that end we liked.
Very tasty antipasti, which outlook also was excellent. We got also very good wine suggestion for our main courses - but they did not mention us about day's speciality. Most others ate that, so had been nice to know about bit earlier...though veal valdostana was very good - but lamb just average. We decided not to have dessert.

“Brilliant... Just go... and have the seafood risotto!”
Reviewed August 23, 2011

Brilliant restaurant... reasonably priced, warm service, great wine (chianti highly recommended), generous serves, lovely atmosphere.

We liked it so much the first night we went back the next night... the seafood risotto was one of the best meals on our month long tour of france and italy. The vitello tonnato and tagliata (sliced grilled steak with rocket/arugala and parmeggiano) were also very good.

Loved it!

“Rude, arrogant and insulting”
Reviewed May 4, 2011

We visited L'Escale one Monday lunch time. The restaurant was empty inside and only two people were dining outside.

We ordered drinks and due to my partner feeling unwell and not wishing to eat I ordered lunch for one.

The waiter took offence at this and became rude and quite aggressive stating that "this was a restaurant and not a bar, we must both eat"

He reluctantly agreed to take my order however by this point I had changed my mind, finished my drink and went elsewhere.

There are so many friendly restaurants with great food and service to chose from in Monte Carlo.

This isn't one of them.
