Business DinnerFood was amazing. Had to make sure we had an outside table, because inside is more of a nightclub vibe and it was too loud. Enjoyed the food, the wine, and the server.5/21/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat foodWe had a great dinner here to celebrate a 50th wedding anniversary. Everyone raved about their meal choices! We also sat outside, and the temperature and view was great. Overall, a very good (if a bit expensive) meal.5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMGood food, very popularWe were seated right away at an outside table. Was very noisy inside, but a friend of mine had eaten here and said the noise level inside did not affect the conversation at the table. Outside seating was pleasant. Right across from The Treasure Island Pirate Ship Show. Could see most of the show from our table.We had the meatball appetizer (little garlicky for my taste but others liked it), my husband had spaghetti carbonara (loved it) and I had a fresh pasta with a crab filling (very light and good). Service was attentive and they did not rush us.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMGood addressWe had our table at 9:40pm even though we had booked for 9:00pm, but the experience was globally very good.5/16/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat!!!!!!The food was amazing, would go again and again such a variety on the menu can't wait to come back5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMFab dinnerMy husband took me here for Mother's Day. We had dinner in the lounge because we had our 2-year old with us & she has ants in her pants. We shared a bottle of champagne & a meatball. I had the eggplant parm app as my meal (it's HUGE but delicious). My husband had the salmon. Our daughter had a little bit of everything. Fantastic meal & great service. Beautiful restaurant. As locals, we go to the strip for most special occasions. We always seem to end up at Lavo a few times a year!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMWould go back....I was in Vegas last week and I made reservation at Lavo at the recommendation of a friend. I had reservations for 9:30pm.....I requested an outside table and I had to wait maybe 10 mins. The view from our table was scenic of the strip but hidden from people walking the strip. This resturant brings a modern crown but guests of all ages enjoy the food and service. The meatballs are a must but you should try their diner menu if you have the time. WIth dinner you receive free admission to thier night club upstairs. The club is smaller than most clubs in Vegas but the place was packed by 11:30. Overall, I would go back and I give Lavo a 10....5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMOnly Bad Part Was at the DoorSecond time dining at Lavo. Hostesses were snotty little girls with a "this place is too cool for you, we'll get to you if we have time" attitude. Servers, on the other hand, were expert, knowledgable and attentive. Drinks were excellent - the 58th Street had an exquisitely smooth taste. Frankly the bread was so great we could have just dined on several baskets of it. The tomato and mozzarella appetizer was excellent. The Veal Milanese was tasty, but a bit dry and too salty for my taste. The Scampi was excellent. Dining on the patio late in the evening after the Vegas heat subsided was a fine experience. We definitely wouldn't rule out going again.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMThe manager Francis was soThe manager Francis was so nice and made sure I was happy with everthing because it was my birthdaay! Thank you very much!5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Outdoor DiningWe dined at Lavo for a girlfriends bachelorette party. We had a reservation but we still had to wait 25 minutes for our table. All was forgiven when we were taken to our table right on the strip. It had an lively ambiance and the seating was very spacious and comfortable. The food took a while and they initially forgot to bring out the complementary garlic bread, but our server was very nice. The food was really amazing for the price. Fresh pastas and thoughtful sauces. There was something for everyone on the menu. I would go to Lavo again for the food and ambiance.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMFavorite Find!You must go and try their meatball. Food portions were large enough to share. Service was impeccable. I loved every minute of my dining experience there. We celebrated our 13th anniversary and was taken well cared for.5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMFabulous!We enjoyed a romantic dinner overlooking the strip. The food was delicious and beautifully presented. This is one of our new favorites when we come to Vegas!! We'll definitely be coming back and bringing friends!5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMWe went to Lavo for a girlsWe went to Lavo for a girls weekend in Vegas. It did not disappoint - the ambiance was very "vegas" and we had a great time. We waited for an outdoor table and it was totally worth it. It was a beautiful night, the food was very good and the drinks were fantastic!! Our waiter was very friendly and suggested some options to try but he did seem to disappear after the food was served. Not a big problem though, we were happy they weren't rushing us through. It was nice to sit outside and enjoy the place. The Treasure Island show across the street was a little distracting, but it wasn't long.
It does turn very "clubby" inside as the night goes on, but that was fun too. I'd go back for sure.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food Great serviceFood was really tasty, everything was delicious. Service was friendly.
Highly recommend for dinner!5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing AgainOnce again I visited Lavo on a recent trip to Vegas and once again it was amazing as always. Every time I visit Vegas which is a few times a year lately I make sure I include this amazing place in my plans. Everytime it is amazing and consistently great food and service!!! Keep it up and I will be back in October and can't wait!5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMSeat outside for dinner it'sSeat outside for dinner it's perfect, relaxing and you get front row seats to a fantastically cheesy pirate show across the street at Treasure Island. Everything we are we ate was delicious. Highly recommend the Oreo dessert, they dip Oreo cookies in donut batter and fry it then give you ice cream to compliment the flavor. Sooo good. Service was amazing our drinks were never empty and timing from salad to dessert was perfect. Highly recommend for dinner!4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMLove the food. But despiteLove the food. But despite my reservation I had to wait 35 minutes.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMMet a friend there for dinnerMet a friend there for dinner on a Friday night. Great food. Wonderful wine list. Elton, our waiter not the piano player, provided excellent service and took great care of us. A wonderful experience all around. BTW, after dinner we went up to the Double Helix on the second floor of the Palazzo shops for a QUIET after dinner drink. Great place if you are looking for a toned down scene for a bit.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMbday dinneri had a good time at lavo the food was good the server was friendly i went there for my bday and i was a little upset because i told the waiter and the person sitting us that it was my bday they did nothing special the music was a little loud as well and i.could not hear the waiter.4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMWould definitely returnGreat dinner, great atmosphere.

The waiter was very knowledgable about the entire menu. Everything he recommended was dreamy.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AM2 for one awesomenessVery impressed over all. Waitress let us eat outside (nice view). Meal was great with a very reasonable price. Club was fun....high energy. Easy to get in (free, with paid entree from restaurant). One small complaint. Waitress let my freind order 2 appetizers, no one could eat that amount of food. She could have told him how much he was getting, as it was a waste of food (and money).4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMHad a wonderfulr experienceHad a wonderfulr experience at Lavo.

Atmosphere was relaxed & the service was excellent. I have already recommended Lava to others who will be visiting Las Vegas soon. Looking forward to returning to try other dishes on the menu. Added bonus, after dining ask for your stamp for quick & easy access to the nightclub.4/12/2013 12:00:00 AMEverything was great untilEverything was great until the waiter took my credit card to pay. Then he came back and asked for mybdriver liscense and disapperaed for over 5 minutes. He claims his manager needed tontake photo copy. This is absurd. My bill was 501.00. I have spent two to three times this atbother vegas restarants including tao and never had this happen. Im quit upset now that someone not onky has mt cc number and also my id. I am alerting my company about this horrible procedure and watch for unauthorized charges on my corp card.4/9/2013 12:00:00 AMDelicious!!!!! Large portions.Delicious!!!!! Large portions. Good for a group to share items. Too loud, however inside. Could barely talk to my husband. glad we weren't newlyweds!!!4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMOur food was amazing! TheOur food was amazing! The cocktails were interesting and delicious, the staff was friendly and helpful, and the food was superb. It was the best meal we've had in a long time. The only downside was that the "club" music was a little loud.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMWe always eat at Lavo whenWe always eat at Lavo when in Vegas and we have never been disappointed. Despite the fact that they get famous people, we are treated like special guests too. The atmosphere is amazing and food is phenomenal. We were able to sit on the patio this time and it was a great experience. This is a must visit when in Vegas!4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMVery reasonable in price andVery reasonable in price and their sauce is amazing!!4/4/2013 12:00:00 AMBeautiful decor, great ambiance,Beautiful decor, great ambiance, good food.

Can't miss on the koby meatball appetizer.4/1/2013 12:00:00 AMWe were in Vegas and wantedWe were in Vegas and wanted to try something new. We had never been to Lavo but were looking for a place with a cool vibe and great food.
The service was outstanding, she was very knowledgeable , and open and honest about portion sizes etc. Most of the food should be shared family style. Our favorite by far was the Kobe beef meatball with ricotta appetizer. Delicious! But be warned between that and the garlic bread we were full...we split the lobster after that, which was good but not stellar.
The mixed drink menu was fun and creative. Our table was outside, great view of the strip, fun atmosphere, but stay inside if you want an intimate setting.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMWe somehow scored a tableWe somehow scored a table outside overlooking The Strip. It provides a perfect view of all the lights, people and energy of Vegas - we even had a perfect view of the pirate show at Treasure Island. The inside of the restaurant doesn't disappoint -- it's got a very cool vibe.
The food and service were outstanding! I had the branzino (Meditteranian sea bass) that was prepared perfectly, and my husband had the veal chop that was pounded out thin and breaded. My husband thought it was one if the best veal dishes he's had. Our waiter had the perfect combination of attention to detail and a sense of humor -- making our experience so enjoyable. This meal was a true highlight of our trip!!3/26/2013 12:00:00 AMEnjoy a night on the patio at LavoGreat food. We highly recommend the spaghetti with Kobe meatballs and the fried Oreos. Enjoy!3/24/2013 12:00:00 AMwe love Lavowe love LAVO, one of our favorite restaurants in Las Vegas. We dine everytime we are in Vegas.3/24/2013 12:00:00 AMThe meatball is incredible,The meatball is incredible, the four cheese ravioli wasn't extraordinary and also was a smaller portion than I expected. Ambience was lovely and the servers were good but not great.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMThe good, the bad and.......As always, the food and the vibe of Lavo were great. It is a beautiful and happening place and I always look forword to eating there when I am in town. Unfortunately they really fell down hard on the service this time. First we were a table of two crammed between a few large parties. The hostess should have never sat us at there. I should have never accepted the table, there was barely enough room to get between the other parties, there were other small tables open so there was no reason to put us there. The server was pleasant enough but we were not his priority as he had several of the larger groups that were around us. There always seems to be plenty of staff working so there is really no reason for bad service or poor seating choices.3/20/2013 12:00:00 AMMeatball are out of this world,Meatball are out of this world, overall quality of food is great3/20/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food, was super yummy.The food, was super yummy. We had to wait about 30 min to get out table so the reservations host offered our group a free round on him which I though was very generous. Would definitely come back again.3/19/2013 12:00:00 AMConsistently excellentNever a bad meal. I ave eaten at this location no less than 15 times and its consistently excellent. (As opposed to the one in New York City which is horrible).
Get the meatball! It's amazing3/17/2013 12:00:00 AMI took my two sons, ages 13I took my two sons, ages 13 and 16, with me on a Saturday night. We sat out on the patio and had a great time! Plenty of food and the view was spectacular. I would definitely go back with friends or on a date.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMcool place, great food. Seatcool place, great food. Seat outside but you will see and hear the pirates show at Treasure Island across the street. It is fun once but it is loud -- every 90 minutes on weekends.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat outdoor seating rightGreat outdoor seating right on Las Vegas Blvd. Awesome everything!3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMHad an amazing dinner andHad an amazing dinner and the service was excellent! We sat on the patio and the weather was perfect. Can't wait to go back!3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMYou MUST have the Kobe beefYou MUST have the Kobe beef meatball on the appetizer menu. It is large enough to serve as a meal for one and it is fantastic! Steak was cooked perfect and was delicious!3/14/2013 12:00:00 AMGood food.My husband and I ate here during our recent trip to Vegas on the advice of a friend who recommended their pizzas. Neither of us ended up ordering a pizza and were surprised by how small the pasta dishes were. My pasta was very good, but the portion size just wasn't enough for my husband who isn't even that big of an eater. We didn't order an appetizer since we were ordering pasta, and maybe that was our mistake. I heard their meatball appetizer is very good but seemed quite pricey ($20) for what it is. The ambiance was great, and the service was exceptional. Overall, we were much more impressed by Tao which is owned by the same company.3/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
