A word from Bonanno's
Lots of us remember the old Italian joint in New York; It promised refuge from the hustle and bustle of everyday life with a heartwarming bowl of spaghetti and homemade meatballs in its rich and history filled dining rooms.
Here at Bonanno's we will jog your memories and warm your heart with only the highest quality ingredients used to cook our homemade specialties. You won't find any foo foo top chef creations, but you will find perfected specialties like Eggplant Rollatini, Certified Angus Ribeye Meatballs, hand tossed Neapolitan Pizzas, Italian Sandwiches, Fresh Fish carved to order, our pasta specialties and of course our homemade desserts. After your dinner, indulge in a slice of our secret recipe Ricotta Cheese Cake or Homemade Tiramisu with a cup of Illy espresso while you take in the views of City Center and Las Vegas from our year round strip side outdoor patio seating.
No frills, just the real deal from our family to yours. Enjoy!

    We were in Vegas for our 40th Anniversary & were craving Italian. Since we had been to a number of high cost restaurants already in our 5 day stay, we decided to check out Open Table for reasonably priced Italian cuisine, Great reviews turned us to Bonanno"s. We didn't expect much & that's what we got. The dinner rolls were great. Everything else, not so much. The chicken parmigiano (was that chicken?) was lacking flavor, The linguine with Bolognese sauce (was that Bolognese?) was also. Indicated on reservation that this was a special celebration of our 40th. Nothing! The waitress (Ricki) apparently was going on break or done for the evening & was only interested in our paying the check. Quite disappointing!! We go to Vegas often & Bonannos won't be on our list to revisit.

    This is a great place for Italian. It's on the LV strip, so we sat outside and people-watched. I had the caprese salad and eggplant Parmesan and my husband had the prosciutto pizza with meat balls. Jerry was our server and did an excellent job. The menu prices are reasonable, as well. Would highly recommend eating here!

    Dined on 11/8/2014
    We had a small party of 7 that included some cost conscious members after a week in a LV. We wanted good food that didn't cost a fortune, and Bonanno's delivered. Really tasty food that was freshly prepared and cooked, and very friendly service. The chicken, the pasta dishes and the pizzas were a hit. Better than the big Italian chains with equal or better pricing. Bonanno's isn't the fanciest looking place, think of a stereotypical scene if a family run restaurant in old NY with checkered table cloths and tiled floor, but the service really warms it up. The location was a little tricky - a street level entrance separate from the casinos but right on Las Vegas Blvd across from the Aria.

    Found a Groupon for this restaurant, and decided to purchase it after the positive reviews. Not many Italian restaurants, especially on the west coast, make & serve chicken francese. Growing up in NYC I'm very critical about Italian food, and chicken francese is one of my favorite dishes and will always order it when it's on the menu. Bonanno's chicken francese was absolutely delicious and tasted very legit, like all the ones I have had in the NYC area. Be sure to order the pasta in the francese sauce to truly enjoy the dish! The Bruschetta Pizza was something I haven't seen on a menu, definitely amazing! The only down side was that a Yelp user says their garlic knots are "to die for" but they're just ok....it needs more garlic.

    Reading other reviews I expected a more upscale restaurant. This restaurant was on par with Grimaldi's Pizza (which is in the mall down the street). The food was very good and the portions were very large. We had an individual pizza and an order of linguini bolognaise - we should have split one or the other and maybe split a salad. Reasonably priced - 2 entrée and a bottle of prosecco for $75.

    We were visiting Vegas and purchased a Groupon for this restaurant ahead of our visit. We didn't know what to expect, but we were so happy we ate here. It was the best food of our visit. We are still talking about those meatballs and the desserts! The service was impeccable and the restaurant was a nice quiet place to eat right off the strip. We would eat here again.

    Expectations for Bonnano's where low going in, it's LAS Vegas. High restuarant proliferated all over town. We wanted a nice Italian meal before going to show. We arrived and were seated quickly. MatreD asked if we preferred outside or inside. We sat outside. Waiter was what made the night. He was on us quick. We ordered some wine and had some nice garlic rolls. 4 of us at the table. Appetizers were great. The meatballs where very good. We live in NJ and meatballs can be a challenge anywhere but home. These where very good. We all went with pasta and everyone loved thier food. Portions where to the large suez as we all did not finish. It was a great night, reasonable for Las Vegas, good food and staff. You will enjoy it

    My wife and I had an excellent dining experience within 50 metres of the Las Vegas Strip at Harmon. During the time there we were entertained by the bright lights and the hundreds of people walking by. The drinks and food were served in a timely manner. The server was friendly. The food was very tasty and the portions were just right.

    Had a group of 16 that we broke into 2 groups (one was a volleyball team, the other was the parents). Good food, great price, quiet setting right on The Strip. Really all you could ask for. Had Caesar salad, Chicken Francese and a glass of house Pinot Grigio. Others had pizza, spaghetti & meatballs, tortellini alfredo, carbonara... Everyone enjoyed the meal - entrees ranged from $14 for pizza to $22 for the francese. An excellent price for Vegas. Located next to Planet Hollywood - it was a great location. Service was good but then we didn't require much help! They were busy but quickly responded to every request. Would definitely recommend and would definitely return!

    This is like your little neighborhood Italian restaurant, but outside the door the insanity of the Las Vegas Strip is roaring. We looked for a reasonably priced, casual dinner and found it at Bonanno's. Their house label wine was very good. The salad were large and delicious. The pizza and pasta were great. Our server was very attentive. A place like this is hard to find on Las Vegas Blvd. Its hidden around the corner from Planet Hollywood. Some of the local employees did not know where it was. We're glad we found Bonanno's.

    Great place for some fresh pasta and the clams were fresh too. Girlfriend said she bit into a small piece of lobster shell from the lobster ravioli but it was great to know that they use real lobsters. We also got the gnocchi al pesto which was really good if you are a pesto fan. Their garlic bread was great. Better than a handful of the other Italian restaurants we go to. The portions were nice. Not too filling. Tiramisu was excellent. Service would be a 4star for me. Just wish he was a little bit more attentive at the end. Overall it was a great experience and i will be going back there again

    My wife and I went to Bonanno's after purchasing a Groupon. We went to this meal not expecting much after reading some of the average and below average reviews that we found on TripAdvisor. We could not have been more wrong! The food was plentiful, the service was attentive, and the flavors were exceptional. Most restaurants on the Las Vegas strip are geared towards tourist, the service is notably bad, and the food is straight from the microwave. While Bonanno's fits into the first category they most certainly do not fit into the final two. This is a place that should not be missed.

    We used a prixfixe coupon from Groupon, which is how we found this restaurant while on vacation in Vegas. The meatball appetizer (3 pretty large meatballs) was very good, even the next day when we couldn't finish it during dinner. The calamari was also tasty. I had the lobster ravioli which was fantastic. The shrimp on top was tender, crisp, and flavorful. The other person in my party had the salmon Siciliana style. He said it was good, just a little bit dry. We both had tiramisu for dessert which was easily the best I'd ever had. I would definitely go back. Service was prompt, friendly, and thorough without being at all intrusive.

    The location and availability of this restaurant attracted us initially. The menu had a good variety and selection but did not offer a small salad to order with an entrée. The portions were very generous and we enjoyed good, basic Italian dishes. However, what detracted from the entire experience is that the restaurant offers a few tables of heated outdoor seating. The indoor seating is just inside of the door used by all the wait staff and patrons to the outdoor seating. The outdoor canopy that covers the outdoor seating does not extend high enough so that every time the door to the outside seating is opened, a rush of cool air floods the indoor dining area. Thus, the seating and our dinner was not as comfortable as desired.

    Worst food I have ever had in a restaurant. My mistake was not ordering pizza. Had a chicken entree which was not even chewable, sent it back which I never do, ordered the pasta carbonara, which tasted even worse. Ended up eating no dinner, management did not apologize nor offer to adjust the bill. The restaurant was very empty at dinner time. Surprised the reviews were pretty good, will never go back
