Best Cioppino in Las Vegas

Bran808 Oct 14, 2008 03:36 PM

Hey guys, just checking in if any of you guys have had a memorable Cioppino in Las Vegas? I recently went to Boston and Legal Seafood had a fantastic bowl. I hoping to find another good one in the desert. Any recommendations?

    When the cioppino mood strikes, it takes me to NobHill (MGM) for a San Francisco/Pacific coast version, or to Zefferino (Venetian) for their zuppa de pesce, which has more of a Mediterranean flair.

      Thanks for the recommendation. I was checking out Zefferino's menu online at it looks pretty enticing. I've never tried Nobhill, but I like Michael Mina's style, so I may neeed to look further into this one. Thanks

        I second the recommendation for Nob Hill - My husband had it for his 50th birthday dinner and has raved about it ever since. So very memorable.

      Back from the dead! Unfortunately, I wasn't able to try the Cioppino at NobHill, but I did try his Lobster Pot Pie, which was great!!! I'm heading back to Vegas again, and will for sure be looking for the Cioppino this time. Any other recs? I tried looking online at the menu for Canaletto (in the Venetian) and they have a nice looking Zuppa Di Pesce. Sounds similar to cioppino or bouillabaisse. Any feedback?

        One of the best cioppinos I have had is at Piero's, over by the Hilton. I haven't been there in a couple years, but I can't imagine it not still being awesome. Make sure you go hungry because the portion is ridiculously big. The bouillabaisse at Vintner Grill out in Summerlin is fantastic as well...and probably the most reasonable seafood stew I've had!

          I was actually considering eating there as well, when I seen it on their menu. I've read a lot of good things about the place and that the food and service is very good. My other choice was Canaletto, since there's a bunch of other things on the menu that looks like my wife might enjoy as well. Anybody have any experience at Canaletto in the Venetian?

        I would have to say by far the best Cioppino I have had out here is at Panevino near the airport. I forget the $$ but I would guess it was pretty expensive.

        It was absolutely luxurious and had a whole huge lobster claw in the mix as well..

            Big Al's is a terrific place; great value, and pretty good oyster stews and pan roasts.
