Transcript:Best Italian Food in Las Vegas
Yes, Las Vegas is literally thousands of miles from Italy, but don’t worry, you can find some of the best Italian cuisine on the planet right here in the middle of the Nevada desert.
Here are a few of my favorite Italian eateries.
Best Italian Restaurants in Las Vegas
First, Canaletto in the Venetian Grand Canal Shoppes. 16-foot ceilings and breathtaking views of the Grand Canal and gondolas are only the beginning of a great culinary experience at Canaletto. Chef Putzu recreates the unique flavors of Venice making Canaletto the quintessential Venetian dining experience. Here are some of my favorite dishes: Cannelloni di Pollo, Linguine alla Buranella, Ossobuco and Branzino. Dinners start at around $31.
More Tasty Italian Restaurants in Las Vegas
Next on the list is Sinatra at the Encore. Created by Chef Theo Schoenegger, this restaurant offers a menu comprised of modern classic Italian cooking. Located just off the casino gaming floor, the décor is as amazing as the food. Here are just a few of my favorites: Risotto, Frank’s “Spaghetti & Clams”, Veal Parmigiana and Cioppino. The average dinner starts at about $50.
Other Great Picks for Italian Restaurants
Finally Circo at the Bellagio. Created by restaurateur Sirio Maccioni, this is one of the most beautiful restaurants in Las Vegas and it’s located in one of the most fabulous casinos. The restaurant features upscale Tuscan fare and wonderful views of the fountains at the Bellagio. My favorites include: Spaghetti con Bottaraga, Saltimbocca di Pollo, Whole Roasted Fish for 2 and La Fiorentina - a 40 Day Dry aged Porterhouse for 2. The average dinner starts at about $25 and they also have a pre-theatre prix fixe menu for about $50.
And those were some of my favorite Italian restaurants in Las Vegas.
