The ambiance makes this old school place all the more authentic. The chicken parmigiana was amazing. The all you can drink house wine, garlic bread, and salad/soup were great as well. Will definitely be back.

due to 25% occupancy I am always very sympathetic about capacity but we had a reservation at 8:15 and did not get seated till past 9pm...looked like double booking and this place came recommended so it was disappointing but the nostalgic atmosphere was great the value more or less softened the wait time....My wifes steak was tough so it was not the culinary experience but after a couple more glasses of wine, this also made it easier to swallow. All in all, I would expect a much better experience under different times but perhaps with such a long wait they could have offered some free wine or bread while we waited. Overall a very average recommendation on such a classic LV icon

The place itself is nice. Has a nice ambiance,I like the decor. The only problem was the food. It’s definitely not my taste. The soup was tasty but the main courses a disaster. We had polenta and the see food combo and the veal. Both dishes a bad choice. I

Horrible service! Manager was not flexible with seating arrangements for a person that had knee problems. They sat is in a high table and we asked to be changed to a lower one and they were not flexible to find us a new table. And I’m guessing if they weren’t able to be flexible to find us a new table since the table was too high then I’m pretty sure they won’t change a table for anyone with any disabilities. Also the ladies in the front were very rude and turned away when I was speaking to them.

The staff was very friendly and the ambiance in this restaurant was wonderful, the place itself is so cute and and our waiter was very friendly. The food came quick and the garlic cheese bread was so good! The starter and main course were nothing special IMO but I would def. come back here for the atmosphere and service.

This was an outstanding dinner during our trip to Vegas. The service was absolutely incredible and the food was superb. Literally the best garlic bread and lasagna I’ve ever had. The House Wine was decent and we appreciated the refill. The cappuccino at the end of the meal was the icing on the cake. Easily the best food experience we have had in Vegas in many trips!

I have been here a few times and it has always been great. Both food and service have been outstanding. My experience last night was a complete opposite. The host and hostess where friendly and welcoming, but that’s where it ended. The server never introduced himself but according to the receipt the cashier was Richard. First, he didn’t take our drink orders, he just said red or white referring to the wine options and also asked if we wanted the salad or soup. He seemed rushed and upset when I asked what kind of soup it was. We answered white wine, one salad and one soup. We also added an ice tea an Diet Coke, but by the time we were halfway with the sentence he was gone. He brought the white and set it on the table. We again asked for tea and Diet Coke, now his back was towards us and he walked away. Hoping he had hear me, he later came with the salad, soup and bread. Still no drinks. At that time I stopped him and I looked him in the eyes and asked where our drinks where? He stated we didn’t order any. I advised him that is he would had stop and paid attention to us he would had hear sus ask for tea and Diet Coke twice. He brought them over and slammed them on the table and left. Slammed the hard enough that the tea splashed over the glass. My soup was cold, no warm but cold. I asked him if there was a way to please heat it up, he say no, I’ll bring a new one. I understand due to covid food has to be thrown out. He brought a new one and this one was nuke warm, not hot but it would do. We placed our order and asked if instead of the marasala sauce on the veal we could have had the Rio sauce to which he responded no. Fine, Marsala it is. The lasagna was warm and dry, if I eat 1/4 of it it was a lot. I didn’t say anything to the waiter because of the attitude he had I didn’t want the situation to escalate and I lose my cool with him. We weren’t halfway with our food and he had already brought out the dessert Cappuccinos that just sat there getting cold. More...
