A word from Giada - The Cromwell
Italian food lovers can rejoice: Emmy-Award winning celebrity chef Giada De Laurentiis has opened her first-ever restaurant, GIADA inside The Cromwell. This charming Las Vegas restaurant welcomes diners with warm colors, comfortable furniture and natural lighting thanks to the restaurant’s huge retractable windows. Guests can eat in the dining room, lounge or on the outdoor patio, boasting breathtaking views of the Bellagio fountains and Caesars Palace. The menu will consist of Italian cuisine with refreshing, Californian influences. Menu items include lemon spaghetti, chicken cacciatore, marsala herb chicken meatballs, rosemary focaccia and lemon flatbread and vegetable Bolognese rigatoni. GIADA adds a lighter touch to Italian dishes, all while staying true to classic Italian recipes. There will also be family-style options, along with a vegan and gluten-free menu.

    Went there after making reservations a month in advance for a birthday dinner. The risotto was among the best I've had I have tried virtually every Vegas restaurant that offers it. The server and service was impeccable. I have told many and I am looking forward to going again and again.

    A first class, highly memorable dining experience from the time you sit down until you depart. Outstanding service, memorable and tasty appetizers and entrees all available at at an above average cost. The signature lemon & shrimp spaghetti is a must have item. Nice wine selection by the bottle but limited availability by the glass. Chianti is only available by the bottle- disappointed with that!

    Giada DeLaurentis has hit a home run with this restaurant. The service is excellent and the staff is extremely knowledgeable about the menu. The food is all fresh and delicious. Ask for a table by the window so you can look out at the Bellagio Fountains while you dine. Just make sure you make your reservations well in advance!

    Giada is by far my favorite food personality! Love all her recipes and have all her cookbooks. My first time in Vegas, you know I had to get to her restaurant! I had high hopes and she delivered! Service was attentive and friendly! We ordered about ten different antipasti and each one was better than the next! We ordered two pasta dishes, four entrees and four desserts! Everything was beyond delicious! Two weeks before the NY Times gave a horrifying review. Bottom line... If you relied on everyone else's opinions and reviews, you never leave your home. Decide for yourself and make a reservation.

    After visiting for dinner the first week Giada was open, and having a marvelous experience with service and food, I couldn't wait to go back for lunch three months later. The fox has taken over the chicken coop...the Bellini was straight Prosecco, the Chicken Marsala Meatballs were tough, the pizza Margarita barely had a topping, and the Lobster was overcooked and chewy. Took 45 minutes to get a refill on a soda! Feeling the restaurant deserved a chance to give an apology, I placed a call to the restaurant manager to share my experience. Though I left a message, I never got a call back. Certainly not what I had hoped/expected.

    Reservations are hard to get at this time. Ours were for lunch at 11:45 and there were a lot of people waiting to be seated when we arrived. The staff was very friendly and we were seated at 11:50. The servers were very attentive as was the manager. The decor was beautiful and the food delicious. I am looking forward to the brunch which is slated to begin some time next year.

    Beautiful Decor, Outstanding Service and High Quality Food, unfortunately overpriced with small portions. Antipasto Bar items were nothing special; Crostini was tasteless and both the wine glass and soup portions a joke for the price. Pizzette, while small, was wonderful as was the Tr-Color Salad. Mains and sides also excellent. Be prepared for either: 1) a big bill, or 2) leaving hungry, and a very spotty experience with some great and numerous mediocre food dishes.

    This is a great spot on the strip, where you can watch the Bellagio fountains while you dine. That's not even the highlight. First you can take a tour of Giadas antipasti bar, where the in house make every day the fresh pasta and breads, and their pizza oven. Then you get to your table in the spacious and beautiful dining area. There is an absolutely overwhelming menu, from cocktails to food. We shared the large Giada's favourites antipasto platter with a couple extras from the main menu, and then each couple split an order of spagetti. There was so much food!! They were all so delicious. If you have the time make sure this is a spot you hit on the Strip. The food is so amazing.

    We could only get a reservation for lunch. The service, ambience and view were breathtaking. The menu was limited and if you don't want pizza or sandwiches, it is disappointing. Pizza crust was amazing but topping was ordinary. Lasagne was ordinary. Food didn't deliver the wow they were charging for or I was expecting!

    I was unable to get a reservation for dinner so settled for lunch at Giada's on the strip. It was worth it - and can't wait to try dinner! Las Vegas is full of celebrity chef restaurants and most do not live up to their namesake's reputation. Giada's is an exception. Started off my lunch with the Caponata - without a doubt an absolutely must get dish. It was amazing! Followed it up with the mufaletta which was quite good as well. Finished off the meal with a strawberry and tomato crostata. It was good but needs some work to make it exceptional (though the concept sounded delicious). The atmosphere and decor were exceptional - a must visit in Las Vegas!

    I expected great things from Giada's restaurant. I hvae watched her for years on her Food Netwrok show(s) longing to taste the food she was preparing. Unfortunately it was way overpriced and average at best (there is a $75 steak on the menu...). The ambiance is fantastic and the service was very good. If they can figure out the price/value relationship with the food, they'll have a winner. In the meantime, I won't be going back and I would not recommend this restaurant.

    We ordered appetizers, a salad and pasta entrees to share. Everything tasted so good. It was our anniversary and was a special place to celebrate. Wait staff provided excellent, attentive service. Our waitor, Jamison, provided guidance with suggestions on the wine menu and hit the mark on a great wine. He was so personable and seemed to appear right when needed. I wanted to try this restaurant for the chef's name and wondered if the food would match the hype. It did! The sauces weren't heavy, they were light and packed with flavor. It is a bit pricey, but in line with other fine dining in Vegas.

    I had high expectations going in and they were certainly lived up to. The vast selection makes it difficult to order but smaller plates make it acceptable to order multiple apps and pasta dishes. Every dish was fresh and flavorful. Perhaps the best dining experience I have had. Everything was top notch. Of course the bill was too, but well worth it. Skip the spa and splurge on Giada.

    Our group of six absolutely loved the food, ambiance and the service at Giada. We had waited seven weeks for our reservation and it was well worth the wait. Our only "complaint" was that we felt a bit rushed through our courses. We had an earlier reservation (5:30), and I'm sure they needed to turn our table, but we really would have liked a bit more time to enjoy our table and conversation.

    Very nice restaurant. Food was good, but is pricey. Decor is beautiful and a very warm, inviting atmosphere. Most of the tables can look out big windows at the Vegas strip, however, we were put towards the back where there were big wooden slats covering the window so we were not able to see out. Did not like our table location at all, set back in a small narrow cove where you could not overlook the wide open main dining area. Very disappointed in that. It was a 2 seat table and one of the seats faces a wall.

    A new Vegas venue and hard to get a booking. Felt it was a little over-hyped. A little pricey for small portion size and compared to other similar places. Starters are done tapas style, so can be good for sharing. We had a mini pizza and it was very fresh tasting with a lovely crisp base. We also had chicken meatballs in Masala wine which were very flavoursome. Pasta dishes very tasty, one tomato and chilli the other tortellini with pea pesto, pancetta and mint. The view is great, and most tables can watch the strip and Bellagio fountains, however the window tables are a little small for all the items they want to put on them and it soon becomes crowded. They recognised our 20 yr anniversary their version of tiramisu which was yum.

    Only had one evening in Vegas before flying home from the Grand Canyon. Met up with family to check out Giada's. Fun place with beautiful decor, plates, Italian glassware, etc. Food was very good with portion sizes on the smaller side for the price but I'm good with a little less food. Varied menu with a nice mix of beef, chicken, seafood and lamb entrees along with five or six nice pasta dishes. The gelato for dessert was fantastic. There's something about the Vegas higher end dining scene that seems a little pretentious and I felt that here, too, but we enjoyed our evening and food very much.

    The dinner at Giada was one best and worst we have ever experienced. The service and food were excellent, although steeply overpriced. Unfortunately the table at which we were seated was tucked away in a little cubbehole isolated completely from any enjoyment of the rest of the dinning experience. This area had three tables and I would believe that anyone seated here was also deeply disappointed.

    Expensive, even by Strip standards (we're locals), but worth it. As many reviewers noted, the portions are small, expensive, but extremely well done. The service was outstanding, done as a team, and perfectly timed. Because the portions are small, we were able to enjoy several appetizers and explore the menu a bit.
