Hey. I was wondering what everyone thought was the best italian restaurant on the strip, regardless of price?

    We had a great meal at Scarpetta back in February. From the apps to the entrees, and through dessert, the entire meal was excellent. The service however was not what you would expect from a top notch Vegas restaurant. The server screwed up my drink order, and then proceeded to screw up my entree order as well. Sucks for him because I was the one paying the bill for our party of 4 and it all happened to me.

    Just a touch South of the strip, we also had a great meal last November at Panevino. Food and service was excellent. I would definitely return

      Bartolotta, Scarpetta and B&B. B&B was a surprise. THink of it as a Batali greatest hits restaurants, well executed.

        Good to hear about B&B. We have a reservation for next Saturday. We love all Batali restaurants here in NYC so we are looking forward to B&B.

          It looks similar to babbo which I absolutely loved albeit a bit more pricey since its vegas obviously!

            I too think it is similar to Babbo. Can't go wrong there!

        We've only been to a handful of Italian restaurants in Vegas, so I can't tell you the "best." I can tell you we love Carnevino though, and we really liked Bartolotta. Going to B&B next Saturday, so I can weigh in on that one after. That's all I've got.

          Obviously, have not been to all, but I had a GREAT Italian meal 2 weeks ago in Vegas.

          Il Mulino. Caesars Forum Shops. Lots of food. Lots of $.

              I will second Il Mulino. Great food, but it is indeed pricey. I've wanted to try Scarpetta at the Cosmo, but haven't made it over yet.

                really love scarpetta in ny. went there for my birthday so always a possibility. Heard il mulino in vegas is way inferior to ny but that prob still means its good since the one in ny is awesome haha

            Do you mean traditional Italian, kind of what you will find in Italy, or Italian-American?

              honestly either. I appreciate both and I'm trying to weigh my options... as long as it's on the strip

              There is really no consensus. Ask ten people and you'll get ten seperate answers.
