An upscale Italian restaurant in Monte Carlo has expanded to the UWS. Rampoldi, from MC Hospitality Group – the people behind Casa Limone in Midtown and Atlantic Grill – is now open at 43 West 64th Street between Columbus Avenue and Central Park West.


As displayed on the restaurant group’s Instagram page, both Mayor Eric Adams and Monaco’s Prince Albert II attended the grand opening.

Rampoldi is led by Chef Antonio Salvatore – “famous for both his classical recipes and original, signature dishes,” per a July 2022 Hello Monaco review. In the same article, the author points out that Rampoldi “happens to be the first 100% organic restaurant distinguished by the Michelin guide.”

The interior of the New York restaurant was designed to match that of its European sister. “You’ll be able to find the recognizable and iconic marbles, the mirror arches, and the Murano-glass chandeliers,” states the restaurant’s website. That is, if you happen to have dined at this restaurant when you were in Monte Carlo …

The menu, which also appears to be the same at the two restaurants, features tartares (salmon, beef, crab); carpaccios (tuna, beef, octopus); three pizzas; pastas; seafood; and a generous list of main course meats.

Meat and seafood entrees are priced between about $40 and $80 and pastas range from $26 to $59.

Here are some very dramatic words from Chef Antonio Salvatore.

The unbearable lightness of elegance

The secret of Rampoldi is not something you can physically touch or see, but something you can sense and perceive. You can feel it in the air, it’s subtle yet untouchable. Our formula is inimitable and irreplicable, even after so many years no one was able to duplicate it with the same intensity and love.
