This place was amazing. We truly enjoyed every morsel served. The service was so on point. Great to have some good east coast cooking and baking here in the desert.

The clams were the most delicious, buttery goodness. Beautiful views of the strip in the back room. Relaxing and excellent food. 10/10 would recommend

Very good spot. Very lively. Pasta done very well. Nice crispy eggplant parm. Pizza really good (but I prefer crispier crust). Everything tried was very good. All considered, while US Italian food is not hard to replicate, this is a really nice place and great value - I'll be back

I guess I shouldn't have gone with the scallops at an Italian restaurant. Scallops were small. The entire portion was tiny. Flavor wasn't bad, just not anything special.

Wow! What a treat. Order the eggplant parmigiana as an app. Killer. And the Mom’s Gravy deal with meatballs, sausage, lamb, pork was terrific.

Emily is such an asset to this restaurant.
Emily and Giorgio always make us feel like we are part of the family.
It is our favorite restaurant in Las Vegas, but it is the staff that brings us back!!!

The hostess seemed overwhelmed and was abrupt after checking us in for our reservation. She told us to move to the side and wait as there were other people before us. Her tone made us feel as if we were an inconvenience rather than a welcome guest. However, our waiter made up for it and provided EXCELLENT service. Our drinks were refilled promptly and he checked on us continuously. Food came out quickly and was AMAZING. We had a great time and thoroughly enjoyed our dinner. Highly recommend.

Giorgio was amazing... he sold us on the sampler menu where we got to try a little of everything for a set price. It was very good. Service was amazing, he made us feel very special. I’m in the service industry, I’m in sales so I really appreciated his attentiveness. We had a table with a view which we all loved. We’re locals so we’ve been to many great restaurants and I feel the experience was great. My only complaint is the location. When booking this on open table the description says it’s at the Venetian. It was New Year’s Day so we understand it was a little busy but we went to Venetian valet and were told it was only for hotel guests, we were told to go to mall valet. When we arrived there the valet guy told us it was a far walk we need to go to palazzo valet. When we get there we’re told we need to self park. After explaining our frustration they were kind enough to let us valet. Then it was a hike to find the place on the second floor among the shops. No clear signs until you got pretty close to the restaurant. It was very frustrating.... then trying to get back to our car was another challenge. We asked a few security guards and where they led us we ended up back at the Venetian. OMG! Just remember when you book this restaurant you need to park at PALAZZO! WHICH NO ONE TELLS YOU. I think if I was told I had to go park somewhere else for the 4th time I would have gone home. So good thing the palazzo valet girl let us valet. It is nice to come across people who care and make exceptions for people to provide a good experience when they’ve been getting the run around.

We were trying to find someplace to grab a late lunch without having to wait for an hour or so. Finally got on Open Table to see what might be available. Grabbed a res here as it was close by. We ordered a margarita pizza and the pasta carbonara with a couple of draft beers. The pizza was fine - nothing special and the pasta was lacking the rich flavor of pancetta. Service was fine. Given that we were able to get in without a wait, we are glad we went. But with all of the fabulous restaurants along the strip, we probably won't return.

We were seated right away. Served drinks and bread. Appetizers arrives shortly after and then the main entrees. It was served hot and delicious. Flavorful. Fresh. Can’t wait to return.
