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, lounge 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.

  • "We were able to sit outside and it was just wonderful. Our server was great. The food was amazing and such large portions. We just loved it."
    Dined on 4/12/2014
  • "The food was only ok. Had a seafood salad, the Kobe meat balls, scallop pasta, and a flat bread pizza. The taste and prep was nothing better than a olive garden. The restaurant decor was great, as it's location. But food was nothing to write home about."

  • "The Best New york steak i ever taste!!!awsome service!! 100% recomended!!!"
    Dined on 4/11/2014
  • "I loved the food and yes I had the giant meatball kobe beef you just need a fork to cut it. I had the viva Las Vegas cocktail and raspberry truffle cocktail both amazing. I highly recommend this place. Dim light setting makes for a great romantic spot."
    Dined on 4/10/2014
  • "We've been to Lavo both for brunch and for the night life, always a great place to eat and enjoy a quiet meal in the morning, or a lively evening."
    Dined on 4/6/2014
  • "Was really looking forward to dining here but left with my wife and I just feeling it was nothing too special. Probably wont be trying the one in NYC now. Meatball was good but not served hot enough. They did nothing for my birthday unlike Tao and SW steak."
    Dined on 4/5/2014
  • "Took a long time for food to come out. They didn't clean our table till we mentioned it and it was not crowded at 415pm there was 6 people in the entire place more staff walking around "looking" busy."
    Dined on 4/6/2014
  • "We walked out before our drinks arrived. The waiter was rude and we couldn't have a conversation without shouting across the table. Many other choices of better restaurants on the strip. We will not ever return to this so-called restaurant. Major disappointment."
    Dined on 4/1/2014
  • "The ambience was nice and the food decent. While our appetizer came out quickly and hot, the entrees were another 40 miutes and luke warm. Given the wait, we were surprised that the extra garlic bread we requested was an additional charge. The wine was just so-so as well."
    Dined on 4/1/2014
  • "The food was great. Lots of choices. Priced reasonably. The only issue was our waitress tried to rush us through dinner. And then she forgot one dish...the salad! Wine selection was great."
    Dined on 3/28/2014
  • "Great food! Great place! We come here often! I recommend Shrimp Scampy or lobster ravioli!"
    Dined on 3/29/2014
  • "I prefer the Palazzo when visiting Vegas and have dined at Lavo on each occasion. Similar to many other initially hot locations on the strip, Lavo has lost some of its original brilliance. Simple example, I believe the carbonara was originally served with a small, poached egg that was then breaded and flash fried to perfection. There is no egg anymore. The meatball appetizer, while still delicious and well prepared, seems not quite as large. Even the vanilla milkshake served with the tempura-battered, deep-fried oreo cookies doesn't seem as though it's made with the same amount of love. Regardless, if you're simply seeking good Italian with a great vibe and beautiful people, Lavo is still hard to top."
    Dined on 3/21/2014
  • "The potentially pleasant outdoor dining terrace is lined with speakers that perpetually blast rap and other heavy rock music at ear splitting decibel levels. Impossible to carry on a conversation, we asked to be relocated indoors, where the music was still way too loud but bearable. The food is so-so. We won't go back. Morels Steak House right next door is a far better choice."
    Dined on 9/17/2013
  • "Dinner was delicious. We sat outside and it was a beautiful night."
    Dined on 3/22/2014
  • "We went for an early dinner before a show and sat out on the terrace. The weather was perfect for this and the table set up and ambience were perfect. Our waitress, J.J., was friendly, professional and attentive. We had the eggplant and calamari for appetizers which were fantastic! Then we had the salmon, seared tuna and seafood pasta for entrees, which were all excellent! We highly recommend Lavo for a superb Italian dinner."
    Dined on 3/22/2014
  • "Great overall experience at LAVO, the DJ keeps the energy up but it's not too loud and the food is great. I'm a New York Italian and their meatball rivals anything I've ever had! Great bar/lounge scene as well."
    Dined on 3/21/2014
  • "Good restaurant. Some dishes were great. Some just OK. Fun place. Nice cocktails. Spirits and cocktails at a very decent price for a high end restaurant in Vegas :)"

  • "Lavo was an excellent restaurant!! The food was delicious with large portions!! You can very easily share them!! The service was excellent!!"
    Dined on 3/17/2014
  • "Went to lavo with a group of 8 (mostly clients).....bad table set up at first and had to "negotiate" with the hostess to get another table......service was good at first then went downhill when things got busy.....one order was not delivered with the rest of the table and we had to wait a long time for all to be served their meal.....we ended up getting an extra desert without commenting because the waiter knew they screwed up....the food was decent, but several items were overcooked (the tuna, my branzino,etc).....I will chalk it up to having a large group.....the reason to go to Lavo is for the kobe meatballs....don't stray to far from the basics,enjoy the energy, and make your guests feel like they "went somewhere"....."
    Dined on 3/20/2014
  • "Lavo is one of the top 5 places to eat on the strip."
    Dined on 3/19/2014
  • "This was a great place for larger (5+) groups and the food was amazing. It was a bit pricey on the normal menu items (pastas, apps, etc.) but thought it was right price for "market" items. Was visiting from Nashville but it would be a 2-3 times per month venue if I was local."
    Dined on 3/15/2014
  • "We go to Lavo at least once when we are in Vegas. The restaurant is beautiful - but we would love to see them change the menu. We've been going for 6 years and it's the same, still. Food is always good but I always have the same general thing - pasta - service was OK. Seems expensive for what they have. I think a wedge salad was $18. They did honor our request for a 4 top even though there was only 2 of us but it was later for dinner and there were a lot of open tables. Usually we get stuck in one of those small tables for 2 that are right on top of each other but we are further away since they are long and narrow. Took a while to get drinks - had 2 servers and it could have gone a little smoother. Not sure we'd go back again."
    Dined on 3/13/2014
  • "Have been to LAVO several times and have always sat at the bar, this was the first time we sat at a table. It was great, we sat outside and even though we were right on the strip, the traffic noise was barely noticeable. The service was GREAT. We love the Meatball, it is not to be missed. One can easily be shared by 4 or 5 people. The bread service is fantastic, too. Warm garlic bread served with tasty marinara for dipping. Eat a light lunch before having dinner, as you want to be hungry for this dinner!"
    Dined on 3/14/2014
  • "My friends and I went to Lavo for a bachlorette dinner. The food was fantastic, atmosphere amazing, and service was spectacular! We will definitely come back for a visit when we are in Vegas again!"
    Dined on 3/14/2014
  • "My meal at Lavo was excellent! Fine service, good food, and a great view. I couldn't have asked for a better experience!"
    Dined on 3/14/2014
  • "While the ambiance and decor live up to Lavo's brand standards, the food was a combination of frozen seafoods and nearly microwaved chicken parmesan. This defines dining for the experience, over the food. Don't go for dinner, but stay all afternoon for brunch (or so we've heard)."
    Dined on 3/14/2014
  • "I can say nothing bad about this place.... I've been here twice in the last few years and it never disappoints!!"
    Dined on 3/10/2014
  • "The ambiance of this restaurant is absolutely outstanding but the food is out of this world! Best Italian food I have ever had!"

  • "A beautiful restaurant with beautiful outdoor view of the strip. Wonderful service. Meatball appetizer was huge and delicious. Would certainly recommend"
    Dined on 3/8/2014
  • "Lavo dining is quite an experience...the food is magnificent and ambiance is electric. House specialties include Kobe beef meat balls for an appetizer and fried oreo cookies for dessert. Most dishes and sides are enough to share. But really get the oreos!"
    Dined on 3/8/2014
  • "We had an amazing meal and incredible service! I would press everyone to order the Meatball!"
    Dined on 3/8/2014
  • "Had dined at Lavo before a couple of years back and it was nice to see they are still offering a great experience. Celebrated a birthday there and the service was excellent and friendly. The meatball with ricotta cheese is a must and we all enjoyed our pasta dishes. Wonderful wine as well. The music gets ramped up a bit towards midnight so just be aware it is not necessarily a quiet or romantic spot in that sense...we are in Vegas after all."
    Dined on 3/6/2014
  • "Had a table for 5 with some business associates at Lavo on a Friday night. Restaurant was very loud so we asked to sit outside where we had a great view of the strip. Food was outstanding but it was rather slow. We were there for 2 and half hours."

  • "After Soul to Soul show we wanted a nice evening meal. We were not disappointed. Our reservation was at 10:00 pm, but we arrived a little after 9:00 pm. We were immediately seated. Out side dining is an option which we chose because of the nice evening and weather. Service was very good with no wait. The cocktails and appetizer (kobe meatball) were outstanding. We had for the meal pizza, rock shrimp, chicken parmesan. All was exceptional."
