    If Rao's is not in your budget this is a great option. All dinners are served with soup or salad,garlic bread, a full bottle of pretty decent wine and cappuccino for around 30 bucks each. Best deal in Vegas Excellent Veal and Seafood

  • Reservation didn't seem to matter
    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 9/12/2014
    The entire experience was excellent, but having a reservation didn't seem to make much of a difference. We were on time to the restaurant, but still got a table 35 minutes after the reservation's time. In that time, every other couple waiting to be seated was granted a table before us. I probably won't bother making a reservation next time.

    My wife and I live in Las Vegas and have been going to Battista's for a few years. Battistas is old Vegas, it's such a great atmosphere. The food is delicious and all meals come with free red and white house wine. It's not the Best wine, but it's free. The after dinner cappuccinos are my favorite part and are included with your meal. They are a little sweet and intended to be a desert type of drink. The whole experience is just great and affordable. Dinner for two will cost you about $60 - $75 with the tip, which is a steal being that close to the strip. Try Battistas, you won't regret it!

    This is a fun place, if you're looking for haute cuisine go away. For $25 garlic bread, wine, soup, spaghetti, and cappuccino - what else do you want? It's the cheapest deal in town. I disagree with a previous reviewer Gordy the accordion player is sweet. This is indeed a time warp and people flock to it.

    The presentation of the food is poor to say the least. It tasted okay but was just a whole bunch of food without any thought of making it look appetizing, a little less food and some garnish would be better. I find the old accordion player an annoyance as he comes and plays poorly at your table, regardless of whether you are in conversation or not and then hangs around until you tip him. The best thing about the place is the old memorabilia from bygone days of the stars and other famous people.

    Although we've seen this establishment many times on our trips to Vegas, this is the first time we've eaten there. Our loss that we waited so long to try it. Definitely value for the money. The house wine (red) was very nice, salad was excellent, the chicken parm (both of our dinner selections) was wonderful. Top it off with a lovely whipped cream topped hot beverage. Perfect!! We will definitely be back on our next trip.

    If you like nostalgia, this is the place to go, otherwise, I think there is better Italian food to be had for the price. The free wine really doesn't cut it and my salad was kind of limp. The spaghetti was just ok and the garlic bread didn't taste like the garlic bread I am used to at other Italian restaurants. Hard to believe this restaurant is rated so highly but in any event, it was a place I had to try but won't be back. You sometimes have to learn the hard way. I sure didn't see any locals even though it was busy and I just shake my head and wonder how people keep turning out when the food is so mediocre. Anyway, enough said. Find another place.

    If you are looking for a decent place with good Italian food right on the strip this is for you. One thing that i think is great is that everything in included in the price of the dinner including the red and white wine they set on the table. It is not a fancy place by any means but it has a great ambiance that you will not find in most restaurants. Love the pictures and different items hanging from walls and ceiling. Great place for groups, families and couples that will not set you back like many of the others in Las Vegas.

    This is a great Italian restaurant. The food and service was wonderful. It should have more advertising as we would never had known about it if it wasn't referred to us from a friend who ate there when they were on vacation. And we go back every time we're in the area. The only negative is that it's a little too dark and you can enjoy all the pictures on the wall.

    Only found out about this place from a friend. A hidden gem just off the strip. Great food, interesting décor, unlimited wine, and AMAZING cappuccinos! Price very reasonable for the amount of food. Sometimes there is a cute little old guy serenading groups with his accordion. I visit this place every time we come to Vegas. Classic old school Italian dive!

    It may not have been the best Italian food I've ever had (I should note that I am from NJ), but it is definitely worth the trip. This place is such a bargain, right off the strip, with big portions of food and all you can eat salad, bread, and WINE! I would absolutely recommend it.

    I was a little concerned when we pulled up to this location - it's just off the strip but they haven't updated the exterior since the 50's. But when we went inside, it was very charming and everyone was very friendly. The menus are up on big signs on the wall, scattered amongst the busy but charming decor. All meals come with soup or salad, garlic bread, and red and white wine. They literally gave us a carafe of each for a party of 4. The garlic bread and minestrone soup were amazing, could have made a meal out of those alone. My fellow diners really enjoyed their meals; I thought the chicken alfredo was passable at best. Chicken was just dry and grilled. The tiramisu that we shared after dinner was huge and delicious though!

The Cioppino was delicious and very reasonably priced considering it comes with sides and unlimited house wine. Looking forward to going back.

    Frequenters of Battista's need no prodding. This place has a reputation as a well established restaurant with a well established menu. The food is excellent and service is above average. The cost may seem pricey to some until you consider what is included in the price of the meal. Both Red and White table wines are included with the meal. They may not be the best wine you've ever had but they aren't the worst either. Salad or soup always included. The minestrone soup is delicious. Then you top off the meal with the cappuccino that is included and wow. I keep going back to this place. Can't go wrong here.

    This restaurant was rated in the top 10 places to fine in Vegas! Not sure how it got this rating as the food was of very poor quality! The waitress said the pasta was homemade; it was at best Catelli!! The eggplant tasted old and had to be unearthed from too much mozzarella and sauce! The sausage pasta was passable! Salad served in a melmac bowl; dressing and greens again just passable! House wine is nasty! Service was fast, too fast! You feel like they want u to just eat and get out! Would not go back or recommend this place; there r soo many better places to dine! If you want a cheap, poor quality experience then this may be the place to go

    Too bad the vegas strip did not have any classic hole in the wall type places to eat! This place is great. Gordy will bring a smile to your face after a tough round at the tables. A dinner for two including classic italian comfort meals with soup or salad, fresh bread and a full carafe of white and red table wine (all you can drink if you want) is cheaper than any restaurant on the strip. And it's really good.

    Our friends wanted to go here while we were in Vegas for vacation. I should have known there was going to be a problem when they said "our kids loved it". The décor was a bit dated, which in and of itself is not an indictment of how the food tastes. The service was very good and attentive. The problem is really with the food. While not terrible it was just blah. The alfredo and red sauce were very bland. my wife had the linguini with chopped clams and it was bland as well. pasta was a bit overcooked and dry(not a good look for authentic Italian). However, the Garlic Bread, salad, and soup were all very good. All-in-all of all the places to choose from in Vegas this probably would not be a place that we would try again in Vegas.
