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.

  • Disappointing Lunch
    OpenTable Diner Since 2011
    Dined on 9/20/2014
    After a strong recommendation from friends who visited a couple of weeks earlier, we booked a lunch reservation. The front desk staff was very helpful with our request for a window seat, but it went down from there. The waiter was slow to get to our table, and pushed us to order our food with our drinks. We flagged down an assistant for some bread, and was then admonished by the waiter that it is provided when it is ready, whenever that may be. During the meal he stopped by once to check, but other than than, no "service" - our water glasses were never even refilled. Had to ask to have a check brought. We shared several dishes, which were okay to good, but not extraordinary - over hyped new restaurant.

    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.

    Went to Giada's to celebrate my birthday and was not disappointed. I'm a Food Network junkie and like to go to all celebrity chef's restaurants, I have to say this experience was the best. Yes the portions are small and it is expensive but well worth it. We tried (my two daughters and I) the stuffed baby peppers, lobster arancini, chicken Marsala meatballs, romaine salad all were excellent! Also shared the spaghetti with shrimp, you have to try this dish. The service was beyond our expectations, just can't say enough good about Giada's!

    The atmosphere and food was outstanding! There seemed to be a lot of staff standing around not sure what they should be doing. If it wasn't for the wait for our table (even though we had reservations weeks in advance and there were plenty of empty tables) and the very slow service waiting to be greeted at out table, it would have been perfect! We will definitely go back and give it another try.

The restaurant itself is beautiful, the food just phenomenal - you will not be disappointed. Ask for a window table and you'll watch the Bellagio water show !!

    OpenTable Diner Since 2013
    Dined on 9/17/2014
    My husband's view was of the elegant restaurant with white tablecloths and candles and waiters with white coats and ties. My view was of the three large screen televisions over the bar, very, very, disappointing. Does Giada want this to be an elegant $$$$ restaurant or an extremely, noisy pizzeria/sports bar? We had to ask for her signature bread and for our wine glasses to be refilled. It took a very long time to order (40 mins) and then our courses came fast and furious with no time in between. Overall our food was delcious...could use some work on the presentation though. Definitely, not a $$$$ quality restaurant. I would go back for lunch but definitely not for dinner.

    We knew it was going to be a special experience the moment we arrived at the restaurant. The appetizers, marinated olives, chicken Marsala meatballs, and raspberry jam feta cheese were all so TASTY. Our main dishes were spaghetti with shrimp, lobster ravioli, and filet mignon delicious doesn't even begin to describe these main courses.

    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!

    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.

    I came to Las Vegas on a girls trip with 2 other girlfriend's. It was one of the girl's Birthday so we celebrated it at Giadas! It was wonderful. I love the menu selections and especially the dessert cart. I do think they should have 2 dessert carts running at Dinner time as we had to wait a long time for the dessert cart to come around to where we almost said forget it and left. It was busy and one guy was going from table to table. It was a very long wait for us. Other than that everything was wonderful.

    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!
