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. Desserts, like the lemon ricotta cookies and sorbets, serve as the perfect ending.

    Our first lunch at Giada, though we've been for dinner before. Superb. From start to finish, from the hostess welcoming us to the hostess saying thank you as we left--and everything else in between--perfection. Lunch menu is smaller than the dinner menu but still quite a lot of choices. Soup was wonderful and the chicken meatballs were amazing. Pizzas were exceptionally good and I had the best frittata I've ever had--absolutely an amazing dish. Service--Maggie--was first-rate, strong, warm, and engaged. I hate giving an all 5-star review because it doesn't quite seem believable but for Giada, that's the only rating possible. Superb, from beginning to end.

    My husband and I went for our 9th anniversary and it was wonderful! The food was amazing! We ordered the bacon wrapped dates for our appetizer it they were so good!! For our main meal, I ordered spaghetti and my husband ordered the ravioli. We also ordered 2 side dishes, the lemon potatoes and the wood grilled asparagus. I think we said maybe 5 words the entire meal because it was too delicious to stop eating and talk!! For dessert, I had the chocolate tiramisu and my husband had the polenta cake with strawberries on top. We left very full and extremely happy. If you are Las Vegas you HAVE to try out her restaurant! You will not be disappointed!

    Expensive. Wine $19 per glass. Food disappointing. Use of way too much lemon and lemon zest. Two orders of veal chops. One good. The other too salty. Overrated. Open kitchen. Reception and waitstaff excellent. Could be great if recipes fine tuned and consistent

    Giada's menu is extensive. Recommend ordering an appetizer and one of the homemade pasta dishes. The server suggested that if we were going to each order a pasta dish (which she said was considered a small plate) we should order two appetizers each. In my opinion (and I enjoy eating) the pasta dishes were what most restaurants serve as a main course. One appetizer each, with a pasta dish, would have been plenty, but we certainly enjoyed trying so many of the different appetizers. Definitely try the grilled octopus. The only disappointment was the Oysters Rockefeller.

    The presentation was top notch. Truly enjoyed trying trying a little of everything and smaller servings. Fresh flavors and new things won me over. I read there was a bread basket, but when I ordered the burrata it came as just cheese. I would have preferred having something to spread it on. Lovely dining experience although quite spendy.

    Giada's restaurant is truly a reflection of her inner and outer beauty. It is pretty, bright and inviting. I've only heard positive things about Giada so I only wish her the best. The Waldorf salad refreshing and the lobster roll delicious. Something new for me was Scapece, the very fine shoe string zuccini. It was light, delicate and delicious! The service was the best! The guys who filled up the glasses of water were on top of it! I loved the carafe's. I wish I could have bought one. The waiter was helpful. He made my cousin feel special with the writing of "Happy Birthday" on her dessert plate.

    Not just a great restaurant, the Cromwell also has great ambiance. It is smaller and quieter than anything else on the Strip. Giada's servers were all very friendly, and ours was no exception (thank you Bryan). The menu is overwhelming if you aren't used to such high-end restaurants (and I'm not) so it helps to check out the menu on-line before you go. The food was amazing. All of it was exceptionally flavored and the serving sizes were just right. Any one antipasta dish was sized perfect for 5 of us (we have 5 differing tastes). Parking was easy -- just use valet. No wait at all. But you can park at Balley's next door (across the street) if you want to save a few bucks. But honestly, use valet!

    restaurant is very nice, great location and view. Food was all very good but lunch menu seemed limited, when you take out the appetizers there really aren't that many options. Only one pasta? The menu seems too much like small plates or snacks. Even the desserts which were very good seemed like take out food. Service was also disappointing. Despite the fact that there was a ton of staff things seemed to take forever becuase there was no cross over of responsiblity so we had to wait for the front waiters to bring us the menus. The staff seemed to be trained to be overally talkative/friendly without actually being effecient. The restaurant was good but kind of not worth the hype particularly considering how many others in vegas

    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!

    Great place for a birthday celebration. Make sure you plan ahead, as there is a 6 week wait for dinner reservations, which is why we went for lunch. The decor is a nice blend of old Italian and modern. The food was excellent. My 2 favorites were the orzo meatballs and tenderloin sliders. Make sure you get the lightly fried zucchini strings for the side dish! The food is smaller plates served family style for lunch. The prices are fairly high, especially for the wine. I would love to go back for dinner, but will wait for the newness to wear off, and don't have plan so far ahead for reservations.

    The food was delicious, but portions are made for women. My husband and his friend were still hungry at the end of our meal. The zucchini scapecci were amazing and would go back just for those. We had the lobster roll, which was a bit overpriced in my opinion. It was good but not at all how I pictured it with the description given from the waiter. It sounded like it was on a big bun, but when it came it was on a tiny piece of bread. Lobster was piled high, but not worth the $35 for the portion given. The citrus donuts were fresh and so good and the same for the espresso drinks. Definitely glad I visited but not sure I'd go again for lunch. I may try dinner some time next time I am out there.

    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.

    As a Diamond quest, I thought I would be treated with a little extra something. When I booked OPEN TABLE, I requested a window seating with a view of the fountains. I didn't get a window seat. I was seated behind a column which of course offered absolutely no view. If you look at the picture on Giada site you will note the column. I loved my appetizer (bacon wrapped dates) and pasta (Rigatoni Bolognese). It was quite delicious. My husband however, did not care for his clams casino. There was about a dozen very small clams. About 1/3 had nothing in them. The rest of them- the filling was barely noticeable. He ordered lobster ravioli which he said was not very flavorful. He was not pleased with his meal. Will try lunch next time in LV.

    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.
