A word from Il Fornaio - Las Vegas

Step inside Il Fornaio and take a culinary journey through Italy. Early mornings bring rustic, crisp crusted bread hot from the oven accompanied by the scent of fresh brewed espresso. During lunch and dinner hours, pastas and flavorful sauces simmer while meats and vegetables roast over hot coals. Bottles of wine from small, regional wineries are uncorked to complement the dishes, which have been crafted in the custom of Italy's chefs, bakers and homemakers.

    As a frequent visitor from Los Angeles, we usually end up wanting to enjoy a nice Italian dinner. The food is good and the service is excellent. I love the ambiance too; very romantic and dimly lit. This is one of my favorite places to go when I come to Vegas. They have a great wine list and the food is more or the lighter side not the heavy cheesy greasy Italian.

    Il Fornaio is not what we remembered it to be. The "outdoor" space has changed and lost some of its charm. The food is decent and the service is generally good. We consider it a good value for a Vegas strip hotel restaurant, but, now after three visits probably won't be back again.

    The waiter we had was outstanding! We were there late in the evening to get "late night" snack, we had a big lunch. He had wonderful wine recommendations. The food was very good. I would go back when I was more hungry and try the pasta - it looked wonderful!

    This was a nice find. I read other reviews and was glad to see they were spot on with the "Oasis" comment. With the glass windows closed, you could not hear the crazy casino noise. Our waiter was very attentive and we loved the authentic Italian accent. The special dessert was a cannoli and it tasted just like "Noni's".

    Wanted some great Italian food and Il Fornaio was good enough. Was expecting the food to blow me away but came out satisfied. I would definitely go back but probably sit inside instead of out near casino. If you are in the NYNY hotel and want Italian, I would recommend it but if you are willing to go out of the hotel then there may be other places on the strip worth checking out.

    We have eaten at the Las Vegas Il Fornaio every time we have visited Vegas. The food is very good. They have changed some things with ambiance, not for the better. There used to be a river along side the outdoor seating with a bridge for access. That created a much better separation from the people traffic in the casino.

    This was our first time dining at Il Fornaio. There were quite a few menu selections, and our groups ordered a variety of items. The veal items were outstanding. The chicken on the prix fixe menu was mediocre. We also had salads, flat bread, and calamari, all were very good.

    I enjoyed Il Fornaio for dinner. Service was great and while it was pretty loud being smack in the middle of the casino, I would definitely go back. They were out of the dish that my friend wanted to order but her second choice (pasta with seafood) was delicious. I ordered one of their wood-fired pizzas and it was really good. All in all, a good experience.

    Wife and I spent 3 days and nights in Las Vegas recently celebrating our 10th wedding anniversary. We had breakfast here twice and dinner twice also. Breakfast was good, dinner was great. My wife had the cannelloni and it was amazing. I had tubes of pasta with a vodka sauce with bacon in it. It was very good. I did a pizza the second time and my wife had spaghetti with a meat sauce. Again a great dinner. We had a bottle of their chanti wine both nights. Great choice. The wait staff is very friendly and helpful with their recommendations.

    My wife started the morning out with a simple breakfast of scrambled eggs and toast, it was enough to wake up. Orange juice was from concentrate. My breakfast consisted of basted eggs and Italian sausage. Coffee was good enough for a second and third cup while people watching on the patio. The service was terrific.

    On the open table web site, their is a brunch menu listed for this restaurant. However, they do not serve brunch, nor have they ever. Was VERY disappointed that we did not get to have brunch as we had planned. The restaurant manager tried to make us happy and was very gracious. We enjoyed the food even though it was not what he had planned for or really wanted.

    Unfortunately our dinner at Il Fornaio at New York New York was less than memorable. We have eaten at Il Fornaio in San Diego and Los Angeles and had very good experiences, but not this time. We felt like we were being rushed. We ordered drinks and then dinner and each course came so quickly we were out of the restaurant in less than an hour. The Caesar Salad was one of the worst we have had. It tasted like lettuce with oil. My husband ordered a gin on the rocks and the glass was tiny, filled up to the top with ice and had almost no gin. The drink cost ten dollars. The main courses were adequate but nothing wonderful. Generally it was very mediocre and I would not go back.
