Annie's Gourmet Italian reviews from OpenTable diners
  • OpenTable Diner Since 2013
    Dined on 4/22/2014
    We had a reservation for 3 of us on April 22, 2014 at 6:30 pm. It was a birthday celebration for one of the girls. It's so difficult for us 3 to get together because of children, jobs but we picked Annie's because we've been there before and enjoyed it. We arrived at the restaurant and it wasn't open! We were mortified! NO ONE CALLED US to cancel. This is unacceptable. It will be a long time before we go back......if we do.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2012
    Dined on 4/12/2014
    We were a party of five plus a child. Generally the request for a high chair strikes fear in the restaurateurs heart. I know because I am one. Not so here. This has to be the friendliest restaurant we have ever visited. Not overbearing yet attentive happy service. The antipasto platter, sausage stuffed mushrooms and scampi appetizers, delicious. The veal Marsala, veal piccatta and chicken parmigian were outstanding. In complete contrast to the big name chef/owners who ‘frequent’ their restaurants once or twice a month, Annie is hands on. Greeting guests, checking every table while keeping a keen eye on the kitchen. They are moving to a new location. Hopefully nothing changes because their hospitality and food are well worth the trip.

    What a wonderful place to go eat! Friendly atmosphere and wonderful service. We had the stuffed mushrooms for an appetizer which were fabulous. I had the shrimp scampi (also wonderful) and a friend had the chicken marsala which he said was one of the best he had ever had. It must have been because he never stopped talking about it. An added bonus is that they allow your dog to eat with you on the patio (they can order their meal off the Pet Menu). This is definitely a neighborhood treasure!

    We've been here four times now, each time waning further and further in service and food quality. Definitely NOT a place for large groups. The outside seating area is really cute, but we have finally learned our lesson. It's too bad because the place has so much potential, and we loved the idea of supporting a local restaurant.

    Went to Annie's to celebrate my birthday and had an absolutely wonderful time! The food was incredible, the ambiance was very romantic and relaxing, and the service was impeccable! I can't say Annie's is anything less than perfect for any occasion! It was the most enjoyable dining experience I've had in a long time! Thank you, Annie!

    Eating dinner here was a great experience! The reservation process was easy for a group if six. The ambiance of the restaurant was great too. Very calm and the server did an excellent job of pacing himself and the food. Everyone felt very comfortable. And there were only compliments when it came to the food! Everyone had a different entree and our appetizers of mushrooms and rice balls were awesome! Will be back again for sure!

    My husband and I had dinner at Annie's and were very surprised at the level of excellent food and the service was unbelievable. Very friendly staff. We are from New Jersey so we have access to a lot of itailan food, (Philadelphia and New York) and this ranks right up there. Will always go back when we are in town, which is a few times a year.

    It was our first time at Annie's. The food quality and taste were superb, and the service was excellent! It was a great place for a neighborhood date night. The ambience was excellent and the atmosphere was quiet. They have an awesome patio dining area for those warm evenings. We will definitely be returning customers.

    We first visited Annie's about six weeks after the restaurant opened and have now been back more than 18 times. This is my favorite restaurant. The food is always delicious and it is so consistent, because it is prepared by Annie herself (or her mom when she gets a rare night off.) The serving staff is very friendly and attentive. I have only once had a negative experience with service and that was a Saturday night when every table was full and about a dozen people were hoping to be seated without reservations. Only one person on the serving staff was having trouble keeping up. Dining on the patio is a lovely experience when the weather cooperates, but you must like dogs, as they often accompany their humans on the patio.

    Annie's is our favorite place to eat. It is small, intimate, and makes a great date night out. Food is made fresh, not like the chains, sometimes it takes longer to prepare, but it is like dining at someone's house, so enjoy your date or family time while having a nice bottle of wine with someone you love.

    We've been to Annie's several times and find the food to be consistently delicious with prompt, courteous service. Sitting inside or outside, the staff truly makes you feel like part of the family; they genuinely are a family owned/operated establishment. This is NOT a place to go to for a quick bite to eat. This is a restaurant that allows you to enjoy each course by not rushing the customers along. The food is always hot, fresh and seems to be made to order each time! Simply delicious! Lastly...thankfully they are used to folks taking home 'leftovers'. The portions are more than abundant, so prepare to bring home food to be enjoyed the next evening or do.

  • ALWAYS A PLEASURE

    My recent visit to Annie's was one of renewed pleasure. As a returning guest, I recommended the Shrimp Scampi to my guests. All were pleased by the ambience. Our server was attentive, quick, and knowledgeable of the product. The classic family recipes are always a treat. Something which you simply cannot get in one of the very popular Italian chain restaurants throughout the Las Vegas Valley. I highly recommend Annie's. The perfect combination of a family restaurant, with traditional family recipes, and the mark of professionalism from the staff. An experience which you must endure if you have a love for Itailian food.

    Really disappointed in this place after all the hype. Only had one server, and although it is small, the service was slow. The food was only fair at best. My veal was the toughest veal I've ever had. It's supposed to be tender and it wasn't and had no flavor at all. It would have been better if they served it with a piece of lemon to squeeze on it. Won't be going back.

    We had reservations for 6:30. Salad was not served until 7:15 and entrees were not served until 8:15. Their excuse, they only have four burners and they were just to busy. Horrible service. This was my first time there and my last. Food was not even that great to overlook the poor service.

    We went for an early Mothers Day meal. The food was good, but not outstanding. The Caesars Salad was good, but you could not get Anchovies, which in my opinion would have made it great. The Bread was not good. Overall it is a place that I might go back to, but it is not a place that makes me want to rush back to get a bite.

    This restaurant is very small. It only has about 20 tables so reservations are a must. There was a large party that came in and this should be discouraged unless it is set up on the patio. The service was mediocre as we had to ask where our waitress was at least three times. The food is great and the ambiance lends itself nicely to a romantic place to eat.

    My wife and I vacationed in the Vegas area for a few days from Houston. I ran across an ad for Annie's online and since it had my wife's favorite (tortellini alfredo) on the menu we decided to give it a try. We are so glad we did! The food was great and the service/staff, especially our waitress, was just as good. My wife and I are simple people, don't drink, and normally stick to comfort foods (especially me, I eat like a 5-year old!), but we love to try Italian restaurants wherever we go to see how they do with simple stuff like Spaghetti & Meatballs or pizza. My wife likened her tortellini to her grandma's, and I loved the meatballs!

    The food was very good and service was pleasant and the right balance of attentive/efficient and slow. This is not a fast food Italian place, it is a slow food evening place. The chef-owner visited our table at the end of our meal. Rice balls appetizers are excellent and huge! Veal Marsala was exceptional. Gnocchi could have been cooked a bit more and was not as hot as it should have been. Dinner for 4 with wine, salads, entrees, 1 dessert, coffees and tip was $200.00. Atmosphere is really pleasant. We will return.

    We had an enjoyable evening. Our server Monica was fantastic. I thought she had been working there forever but it was only her 3rd day. My grandson ordered the Chicken Piccata and I the Rigatoni Roberta which came with a Caesar salad. Caesar was one of the best I've ever had. The food came out hot and the Rigatoni Roberta was plentiful, but I did find the eggplant to be a little undercooked. The Piccata was tasty but had no eye appeal and the size did not seem to match with the price. The menu is overpriced but the service , ambiance and the singing of Happy Birthday to my grandson (with a complimentary ice cream cone) made it all worth the $42.00 price. Great service, great ambiance, good food, but a little too overpriced.
