This restaurant is a great concept as it's an Italian grill serving tasty cuts of beef, chicken and even sausages. It's especially good in a town like Monaco where there are a plethora of over-priced restaurants serving the same old French rubbish. Everywhere you go you see Steak Frites, Tartare de Boeuf, Salade Nicoise, and not forgetting frisbee Pizzas.. so it's so refreshing finding La Bionda where you can find something different: grilled meats a la Italia!!
We didn't try too many dishes but what we had were really tasty. My picanha beef (thick slab with a delicious coating of fat on the top and then sliced and presented on a hot plate) was packed with flavor even though it was a touch overcooked (my fault as I wanted medium). My friend's Italian sausage was very good too. And our side dishes of mixed salad and fries were perfect. I also had a slice of the parma ham off the bone and I will definite order it next visit. After dinner I joined my friends table for some vino and tried their skewers of lamb/goat (rostelle).. needless to say those were yummy bites and will also be on my hit list next time..
Last but not least, mention should be made of the prices. They are really reasonable especially for Monaco. This town has seen many changes having been overtaken by Russians of dubious caliber.. and hence all the original pillars of Monaco dining such as Rampoldi, Bistroquet, Triangolo have all disappeared. Instead bastions of Eastern Euro tackiness such as Cipriani have emerged serving bad food at bad prices. So we are so grateful for somewhere like La Bionda to come all the way from San Remo (where it's HQ resides) to serve us great food at great prices. Viva Italia!!
