A word from Lavo
Located directly on Las Vegas Boulevard, LAVO features 20-foot ceilings,low chandeliers and a terrace overlooking the famed Las Vegas Strip.

Corporate Executive Chef Ralph Scamardella and his experienced team treat guests to a culinary voyage with selections of classic Italian dishes. Signature highlights include the one-pound Kobe Meatballs, served with sausage ragu, whipped fresh ricotta or salad and a garlic crostini; and some of the best pizzas in Las Vegas, including the Lobster Scampi Pizza, baked straight from a wood burning brick oven.

With the restaurant and terrace open 7 nights a week at 5 p.m., LAVO has quickly become a "must-go" destination for those who love great food, music and a high-quality dining experience.

Diner Reviews
  • "We started out very hopeful as this place was highly reviewed. We had the giant meatball appetizer and calamari - both of which were EXCELLENT and delicious, so we were really looking forward to our entrees. Unfortunately, all dishes were so highly salted, they were difficult to eat. Penne ala Vodka, eggplant and mixed seafood with pasta, all very, very salty. Ruined what would have been a very, very nice dinner in a lovely setting. We didn't have a chance to send it back because our waiter didn't check back until we had nearly finished, surprising because otherwise, the service before the entrees was really good. At those prices and the beautiful ambiance of the place, I was really expecting something better. :-("

  • "Went here to find good italian food with a pleasant and relaxing environment. Found it. Dinner was fantastic. Would go back in a heartbeat. Only caution would be that we ate early (6pm) and it was quiet. By 8pm it was jammed and a lot louder and less 1-1 time with our server. Eat early."

  • "The food was great! We got to the restaurant early but had to wait to be seated for 6PM reservation. Restaurant was not busy. Server seemed to be in hurry and didn't really pay attention to us. Loved the food. When one of the orders was incorrect they corrected it immediately. Waiter lost my Driver's License."

  • "We eat here a lot. This might be my second or third review. The large meatball with the fresh whipped ricotta is amazing. The veal parmigian is out of this world. You can share entrees if you don't want to stuff yourself silly."

  • "Food was great. Get a GIANT meatball as an appetizer and share it with others. Service was good. If the weather permits, eat out on the patio."
    Dined on 7/11/2014
  • "The overall experience was a great one- we sat on the patio in though it was July and it was bearable. The service was wonderful. The bread they served was absolutely wonderful, I could have eaten an entire loaf. We got the wedge salad and it was underwhelming for the price. I had the spaghetti carbonara and it was amazing. I was sad that I'd wasted room on the salad my pasta was so good. We were too stuffed for dessert but maybe next time!"

  • "The food is good but for the price it could be better. The restaurant itself is really cool. It has a very fancy look that is nice and the bathrooms are fancy and have cool sinks. The meal could have been better but the thing I loved was the dessert. The oreo zeppole was awesome if you come here its a must have to get!"

  • "This restaurant is very limited in their selection of food. They are known for their Kobe Meatballs which weren't to die for, but they weren't bad either. Overall nice experience, but food wise, it is not a restaurant I would go to again."

  • "Hip atmosphere, very good service and great food. If your a fan of veal pram, you have to have their version on the bone. Always a stop for me when in vegas."
    Dined on 6/29/2014
  • "We just went back to Lavo after a couple of years with a group expecting good pasta and a fun scene. The appetizers were ok but the meals were terrible! Also, we waited over 40 minutes for our table that was empty the entire time. Overall, it was the only meal in Vegas that we had that disappointed us."
    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "Terrible service since we arrive. We had reservation for 945, we had to wait 45 min to get a table, didnt care to make us wait. We had to asked many times to the host what was going on with the table. She told us to wait.When we had the table,the waiter service was terrible. We had to be asking for water many times, other waiters that had pitchers with water didnt serve us. We saw other tables with excellent waiters service. Very bad service in general"
    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "Planned for a special night out with friends... reservation was for 7:30. We were seated at 8:15. 20 minutes for waiter to take our wine order and dinner took 2.5 hours - although we ordered apps, salads, dinner and dessert - there was much waiting in between and we had to pour our own wine from the bottle. food was salty and one of the 3 meals had to go back (veal was tough) - when it was brought back out it was chicken - they decided the veal was as tender as it was going to get (I've had beautiful buttery tender veal - this wasn't it). After the "chicken" was brought out - no one ever returned to check on wether it was satisfactory. The atmosphere was great - dj was on his game... but everything else fell short. Won't go back."

  • "We were on time for our reservation and had to wait 30 minutes to be seated. Then it took forever for our food to get to our table after it was ordered (1 hour) and for us to receive our bill (20 minutes). The entire dining experience was over 2 1/2 hours, which is far too long."
    Dined on 6/27/2014
  • "Seafood pasta options were extensive. Wouldn't recommend if looking for chicken dish. Veal parmigiana was really good however was serviced with nothing else. Usually get a side of pasta with this dish. Calamari was superb. Very light and flavorful."
    Dined on 6/24/2014
  • "I went twice while on my trip because it was so great. Louie salad and 20 layer cake are the best! Waiters are the friendliest!!"
    Dined on 6/24/2014
  • "Service is good, atmosphere just ok. Sat at a table near waiting area and felt crowded. There was a group of 15 people they did not seat until entire party arrived. Felt like I was having dinner with them. Food was okay...nothing spectacular."
    Dined on 6/22/2014
  • "Waited for 35 minutes after my reservation time for a table to open up even though I was told it would be a very short wait. Food was good though it was a bit salty. I ordered a manhattan and it came in a tumbler with ice which is not correct."

  • "I took a big group to Lavo for my girlfriend's birthday. The ambiance was great, our server was excellent and very attentive, and the food was delicious and worth the price. They even brought out a birthday dessert with a candle in it for my girlfriend and didn't charge us for it. Would go there again in a heartbeat!"
