This place is generally quite busy. Prices are expensive but typical for Monaco. The staff are ok and not pretentious. The food is ok. I would recommend the buffet.

This falls firmly into the category of the majority of restaurants in Monaco: mediocre, over- priced food, which is most likely pre-prepared or ordered in from catering companies. 35 Euros for a chewy, badly prepared tagliata- which was almost certainly pre-cooked is an insult. The biggest giveaway was when I asked for grilled vegetables; oh no, they couldn't do that-... More

P is quite central if you're near the Casino (it'll be just down hill past the Fairmont). Good food and wine, excellent and friendly service, terrific fish. I had three dinners there last week and each one was very good.

I have known this restaurant for some years, returning after 3 years we found that the ownership had changed. The warm generous friendly atmosphere is no longer there. The new proprietors are formal, efficient and attentive. The quality of our meals was good, not over generous in size, the wines expensive. We would not return there.

Great pasta, really good price, big portions. Clean and friendly staff, Gian Carlo was so good with main course recommendations. Every time we go to Monaco, at least one night we must to have a dinner here

Have a nice variety of meal at a reasonable price spicy by the friendly and cleverly funny staff. You might want to try the buffet and the smoked mozzarella. Personally I love it.

We had the grilled Calamari and pasta with prawns and zucchini. It was delicious, but it is quite pricey than what we're used to for something similar. A glass of Prosecco was a price of a bottle. Service was good and courteous.

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
