  1. We just returned from LV and while there, went for the third time to Nora's Italian Cuisine. It's off the main course on Flamingo Road before you get to Redrock Blvd. The address is
    6020 Flamingo Road. The locals rave about it and if you don't go early enough, you'll have quite a wait. They have a dynamite "lemon drop" drink and my favorite dish is the "Crazy Alfredo." Indescribale. Service is excellent also.

      Didn't they used to have Mount Vesuvius chicken? Didn't see it on the current menu. I agree, the crazy alfredo is great!

    2. We just got back form LV and had a fabulous meal at B&B. Very nice wine list and excellent service. I had a delcious pork chop and my husband had a very good spaghettini with lobster. We also had an octupus starter that was quite good.

      1. Bartolotta in Wynn

          Heard this was awesome. Have to hit it up next time. Thanks.

        2. I was pleasantly surprised by the late-night menu at Stratta after my recent Wynn visit. Came back to the hotel after midnight and the only place open was Stratta. We had 2 stellar wood-fired pizzas (Margherita and one with argula, ricotta and proscuitto) and a couple of killer salads. Those pizzas ranked right up there with Spago and Mozza. The late menu is an abbreviated version of the regular and they are open until 6 in the morning. Great people watching too.

            Totally agree on strattas pizzas. I had the mushroom one when I was there last and it was perfect.

          2. OK Narrowing down two nights in Vegas and only want to do one Italian. This seems to be the group to help me out. Here's my three (I need to pick one) and my initial thoughts from reviews:

            1) Bartolotta - I really liked the idea of something a little different (seafood thinking Cinque Terre) but it seems to not be that popular and mixed reviews on the food.

            2) B&B - I'll be honest - I love Batali's restaurants in NY and Mozza in LA. If B&B is like that I'm there. Since the other "B" is Bastianich I'm a touch worried. I've eaten at Lydia's in KC and while a very nice meal, it's not up to Batali's.

            3) Stratta - looks interesting and may be the pick.

            Help me out Chowhounders!! Love great food and a good atmosphere (not too sceney but also not a ghost town).

              I haven't been to B&B, but Bastianich is also one of the owners of Mozza.
              Bartolotta and Stratta are both stellar; it just depends on what you are looking for. Neither are hipster central, no need to worry. Other than Wing Lei, I have never had a bad meal at any of the Wynn restaurants and I have hit them all.

                Thanks BubblyOne and good to know about Mozza. Any thoughts on if one has a better bar or chef counter to eat at? I have two nights and one will be solo. Much prefer eating at a comfortable bar as opposed to a table where I feel like I'm spectating on other peoples dinners.

                1. re: teejaymoore

                  Stratta is the more casual, better for solo dining I think and you can eat at the bar. Not sure if Bartolotta has a chef counter.

                you do realize that any Batali restaurant is a Bastianich restaurant.. They are partners on every project..
