Rampoldi's


Rampoldi's is a trendy restaurant just around the corner from the Café de Paris in the Place de Casino. This is what a recent Frommer's review had to say about it:

"More than any other restaurant in Monte Carlo, Rampoldi is linked to the charming but somewhat dated interpretation of La Dolce Vita. Opened in the 1950s at the edge of the Casino Gardens and staffed with a mix of old and new, it's more Italian than French in spirit. It also serves some of the best cuisine in Monte Carlo. Menu items include an array pastas, such as tortelloni with cream and white truffle sauce; sea bass roasted in a salt crust; ravioli stuffed with crayfish; and veal kidneys in Madeira sauce. Crêpes suzette makes a spectacular finish."

I'd go along with that. I've been lucky enough to eat here a few times in the past, but happily when someone else was paying. It's not cheap but it's very good. Great place to watch the 'beautiful people' if you can tear your eyes away from the food, that is.

Rampoldi? Ah !!! Sure, after Café de Paris, where as said I'm used to spend my Montecarlo free time, Rampoldi is just the second place (third is Mc Donalds of course ehehe). Say cheers to Luciano.

I like your perspective on this light!
Sea bass roasted in salt crust...yummy!

I reckon the beautiful people on the sea will suffice. Perhaps the sea bass and ravioli stuffed with crayfish could be taken out to sea on a yacht.......
Ah, dreams, - but I'll BE there !!

Adoro el Crêpes suzette. Cuando pase por Montecarlo procuraré sentarme en ese restaurante para probarlos y ver pasar "gente guapa".

Love your shot, warm and inviting. Food sounds wonderful and Rampoldi's does indeed sound exquisite. May you have many more meals there (especially when someone else is paying!)

Can't say the menu attracts me, but the decor sure does.
