Description: Ideally located in the Monte-Carlo Sporting, La Trattoria, Alain Ducasse's second restaurant in Monaco, overhangs the Mediterranean sea. The Tuscan cuisine offered by the chef Damien Leroux, brings to mind the pleasure of travelling, sharing and simplicity.To tempt you, the buffet proposes more than fifteen antipasti. The restaurant also offers an innovative version of the traditional pizzette Margherita, Napoli and Foccacia di Recco. The "Pasta Corner"/ "Comptoir a pates" composed of fresh and dry pasta promises fine dishes such as Linguine with seafood, Trofie zucchini and beans, Ravioli stuffed with aubergine and ricotta di buffala. La Trattoria will treat you with a unique Italian gourmet moment...

“Disappointing”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 July 2014 via mobile

So much potential but really disappointing.
A very nice restaurant with a beautiful view.
The restaurant was talked up by many people and came highly recommended.
The appetizers were a rip off. It was a lot of money for just a tiny amount of food. And none of it was really great.
We had fish. The Dover sole was adequate if a little greasy. The rest of the fish was just okay.

Deserts were good but forgettable.
A big bill followed and you were left wondering what was it all for. Didn't feel with it.

“A pleasant surprise”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 July 2014

We were unsure with what to do on our last night in MC, so we looked at reviews and went for La Trattoria....it was great. The appertisers were excellent, small plates that you could share or orer a few fpor yourself. Mains were a mix of traditional italian dishes, pastes, meats etc. The service was excellent the views back across MC lovely. We sat out on the balcony and enjoy a great night! Wine list was solid with many good bottles priced pretty good too.

“Nice scene, average food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 January 2014

Wonderful location, nice ambiance, beautiful setup and good service. Unfortunately the food does not have a character and is below expectations and so several times.

“great setting, good italian food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 September 2013

The restaurant offers great views over the sea and city. Located a 15 min walk along the sea from teh Casino, it's worth trying out! We all had appetizers (3 each and we especially appreciated the Vitello tonnato and the Parmigiani). Followed by starters where the spaghetti and the risotto could please us the most. Best mains were gamberoni, Saint-Pierre and the Scalopini.

“It's an Alain Ducasse restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 September 2013

Alain Ducasse is one of the best chefs in the world so rest assured you won't regret going to this casual Italian. Polished service, delicious food, breathtaking view of the bay. Pizza and risotto are to die for. Relatively reasonable prices--it is in Monte-Carlo after all.
