Good italian restaurant in las vegas?

hi everyone, i'm looking for a good italian restaurant, doesnt matter which region as long as it does it good. doesnt matter where in vegas it is, we will be staying somehwere on the strip but will have a car. Nice atmosphere and most importantly someplace with good service. anyplace with bad service or snooty service is not going to work. that being said any ideas?

  1. if circo in the bellagio is still around it has outstanding italian food with excellent non-snooty service

    1. olives is another option...also in the bellagio.

      1. You must try Cafe Martorano in the Rio. Hands down the best authentic Italian I have eaten in Vegas. Tastes better than my grandmothers cooking which I didn't think was possible. There are a few things that I don't like about the place (they don't serve tapwater, bottled only) but the quality and taste far out weighs any negatives.

        1. Spiedini at the Marriot in Sumerlin.

          1. off the strip - on flamingo - going west - pasta mia ( decent / inexpensive ), torino's ..ehhh. not bad, Ferraro's ...higher end italian - very good, nora's favorite ... all of these are within a mile stretch of flamingo. on tropicana - west side - capo's ...old school italian , on the east side is strings - similar to pasta mia...for very casual, in the same shopping center is siena deli. another fav of mine - in henderson - beautiful view of the strip is ventano's. I've yet to try rao's at caesar's and cafe martorano in rio - here are reviews of both by the local paper food critic.
