    This is the one place that we have to eat at every time we are in Vegas. Everything about this place is amazing. I love the menu being on the wall, and the wine included is just so nice. The portions are a good size but not so big that you can't finish it. The food is so well cooked and even though it is a little of the strip it is always super busy so I recommend a reservation. Such a fun and friendly place, looking forward to our next visit.

    We are In Las Vegas as I write this note. Hotel Three of the four of our party are first or second-generation Italian-Americans, and the fourth is a bigger Italian mother than my wife. Battista's was recommend from an acquaintance from my health club, and he was spot on. Battista's is right behind the Flamingo Hotel, just off the Strip. It is old school Italian, straight-forward menu, including the house wine and cappuccino, and the service was outstanding...down to the strolling accordionist. I would, and will, recommend Battista's to anyone who mentions an upcoming trip to Sin city. Leonard Digate

    Yes, the food and wine are not the best, but come one...it's fricken Battista's. Gordy is still kicking it on accordion. Was there this time with 4 friends...so much fun with a group. I always get the veal parm and we went through about 5 baskets of garlic bread. I'm 35 and this was my 12th time there...a must when in Vegas.

    Battista's serves solid Italian food at reasonable prices. The "Old time" dining atmosphere may not meet the elegant standards of other eating establishments in Vegas, but it sure was a cozy place for me to dine. I eat here every time I return to Vegas.

    We travelled to Las Vegas for over 20 years before we finally stuck our head in a few years ago to see what this restaurant was all about and since that time we go multiple times on each trip. The thousands of pictures of celebrities who have visited is astonishing and of course the food must be delicious to keep the doors open for so long, and it is. I highly recommend you try it and judge for yourself. Such atmosphere and history!!

    I'd been wanting to check out Battista's for awhile---I've lived in LV for 8 years. On the reservation I requested a quiet table for myself and my boyfriend for his bday. We were surprised with a tiramisu with a candle & the little room we were in singing happy bday! Our waiter was excellent & definitely went beyond with that gesture. Food was great & fair prices. Will def be heading back!

    Friends recommended we try Battista's. We're glad we did. The food was very good, but we would have preferred more options when ordering. We really didn't want the cappucino at the end and the house wine was just okay.

    Battista's is a very old school Italian restaurant that is a must go to every time we go to Vegas. The place is always packed and has an energetic vibe so make sure you make reservations before you go. Their menu is somewhat limited as far as what they have but the ravioli and the meatballs with ziti are the things I get when we go. Their garlic bread is probably some of the best I have ever eaten as well!

    Even on a busy Saturday night, didn't have to wait long to be seated. The garlic bread was delicious, the salad was good but my veal piccata was only okay. I think people come here more for the ambiance than anything. A place to go once, and that's about it.

    Incredible!! If I could have scored the food, service, and ambience higher than outstanding, I would. Battista's far exceeded our expectations-which were high to begin with. The place was recommended to us by a wonderful local and wow are we glad we listened. True, authentic Italian style restaurant. The cannelloni was the best anywhere in the States. The linguine and clam sauce was superb. While sitting at Battista's and enjoying the food, wine, and ambience, we honestly forgot where we were. We could've been sitting in the nice family restaurant in Italy. Thank you so much Battista's. Please, please, please come to San Diego and open another Battista's here. We could use a true taste of Italy in San Diego.

    This is one stop we ALWAYS have made in Las Vegas on every trip for many years now. A must go to Italian restaurant. The food is always incredibly good. Priced very reasonably. They serve red and white wine with the meal and then a cappuccino after the meal as a wonderful finish. Gordie is always there playing his accordion and will play a tune based on where you are from, a favorite tune or one for the kids. It has a wonderful atmosphere, the waiters are friendly and attentive and service is amazingly quick. This is a family owned restaurant that has been there for a long long time and will probably be there forever and I'm counting on it because we will continue to go there every visit to Las Vegas. Great for romantic or family.

    Ambiance-cluttered and tacky but with history,70's feel Food-old school, high fat, but the steak perfectly cooked MR needed salt, my husband even ate the cooked spinach. salad too much vinegar, and the included wine fair at best, the garlic bread was soggy, fatty and poor. I ordered the special ravioli, and it was a mountain of overcooked pasta, very ugly presentation. I would never eat here again and if you are interested in fine dining go to a place where a cappuccino is a cappuccino not a overly sweetened mocha thing covered in whip cream. Might be good for big groups on a fixed budget who don't care so much about food as quantity.

    Came to this restaurant after a friends recommendation. Unfortunately our experience was not as positive as we expected. The food was below average. The sauce on both our entrees tasted like it came straight from a can and the garlic bread tasted like it had been reheated several times. Dinner includes soup/salad, garlic bread, entree, wine and cappuccino. Portion size is good however i think they should focus on quality not quantity.

It's a wonderful place, the waiters are superb, the food is old-fashioned and good, and what is there left to say about Gordy? If you haven't been to Batista's, you've missed Las Vegas!

    My husband and I were looking in advance of arriving in Las Vegas for a unique place for dinner for our anniversary trip. We didn't want to be too formal, just good food in a unique setting....wanted to eat outside of the hotel locations. My sister had visited Battista's on previous trips and recommended it for great food in a different setting. It was a great recommendation! The food was delicious--authentic Italian done very well. My husband was blown away by everything included in the dinner price too--it really is a great value! (We ate elsewhere the previous night and paid more for 2 Caesar salads with an app. and 2 drinks!) We loved the setting--so interesting and enjoyable! Will definitely go back!

    The food here was great and the portions were massive the surroundings was interesting with lots of different photos of the older days. The staff were not the most friendliest that we came across whilst in Vegas (except for the old man playing his accordion to us) Not that it was a problem the food more than made up for it, we recommended it to some other people who enjoyed it too.

    We went on a recommendation, and have no idea WHY it was recommended. It was cluttered (could be part of the charm) and had an underlying Oder of cat urine. House wine is free (yay!) but the white wine was room temp and worse than box wine I've had. I had the lasagna, mostly cheese. The upside was the garlic bread was delicious and the cappuccinos at the end we're divine (aside from the plastic peeling off of the plastic coffee cups). We almost walked out, it took so long to actually get served, and I wish we did. It was terribly disappointing, maybe even a bit gross, and still EXPENSIVE?!

    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.
