Prince Albert joined in the 75th anniversary celebrations of Rampoldi on the weekend, one of the Principality’s oldest restaurants and “a part of Monaco’s history”.
For three quarters of a century, Rampoldi has been an emblem of Monte-Carlo’s fascinating lifestyle, welcoming the Princely family and Monegasque personalities into its warm embrace.
Since 2016, Chef Antonio Salvatore has been at the helm, keeping this Monegasque institution on its path of producing fresh, Italian cuisine using iconic produce from southern Italy and scents of the Mediterranean.
On Saturday 16th October, guests were invited to celebrate the important milestone with Chef Salvatore and his team. The gold-speckled champagne flowed as the chef welcomed Prince Albert to the celebration, presenting him with a copy of the Rampoldi book published in commemoration of the restaurant’s 75 years.
Prince Albert thanked the crowd for “celebrating this wonderful place that is a part of Monaco’s history.”
With its Carrara marble, Murano lighting, crystal chandeliers and mirrored arches, Rampoldi has “just the right amount of Monegasque bling-bling”, according to the coveted Michelin Guide.
In 2021, La Table d’Antonio Salvatore, located underneath Rampoldi, was awarded its first Michelin star just a year after opening, marking a new chapter in the restaurant’s history.

During his annual address to the press, National Council President Stéphane Valeri was optimistic for 2022, saying "there are reasons to hope that we can get back to a quasi-normal life.”
Nice Côte d’Azur airport ended 2021 with over 6.5 million passengers passing through, higher than expected and fuelled mainly by a strong summer season and the return of long-haul flights.
It is expected to be another mild, sunny weekend at the region’s ski resorts with plenty of standing snow, while Valberg will be hosting a Monte-Carlo Rallye event on Friday.
The celebration of Sainte Devote, Monaco’s Patron Saint, will be held next week, and again this year the Principality is taking adapted measures to ensure the health and safety of all who wish to participate.
