    Second time eating here in 2 weeks. Had the shrimp scampi but only 4 shrimp! Dionnico was a great server. Hurry cuz they are closing their doors after 30 years to renovate and make it some sort of mulri Asian noodle shop. What a disappointment considering the number of noodle places in the area. Doors close on 10/26/14.

    A very good experience...We were seated at a nice table...all the booths were taken..should have requested a booth to begin with..no problem. We had a very good waiter..handled all our needs..very attentive..but not overwhelming. The bread was excellent..salad was adequate...but the entree was excellent, very tasty..not too hot, but just right...Did not have any coffee or desert, we were too full..Thank you.

    The place is a really interesting find. It wouldn't seem like a nice place, but it has awesome food and an interesting ambiance. The lights are dim and red making for a relaxing vibe. Wine comes with dinner. They don't have an extensive wine list, but the red was good enough for me. I ordered the 12 oz sirloin with risotto, which was fabulous. They also include soup or salad with dinner along with great bread and garlic butter to start the dinner off. The soup is tomato based with octopus, which I would recommend steering clear of. This place is also very reasonably priced. My sirloin was only $17 with the wine, soup and bread it made it worth it!

    This is a casino restaurant in downtown LV. We chose it because it is very close to the Fremont St. Experience light show and for the good reviews it has received. We enjoyed a filet mignon and prawns, and a chioppino. Both entrees were very good. The prices were surprisingly moderate. Best value we found while spending four days in LV.

    Don't let the name fool you -- it's not just pasta! Although their pasta is great with a tasty sauce, it can also be a side dish (if you choose) with your steak or steak & lobster or other meat/seafood dishes! The food is very good -- a must try is the apple dumpling desert -- it is amazing (best rum sauce I have ever tasted)! The atmosphere is cozy, but simple with a view to the chef's making your dinner. We enjoyed great service and a delicious meal that was extremely inexpensive!

    We always love the Pasta Pirate and it is a regular stop for us on every trip to Las Vegas. This time was for my husband's 50th birthday with a group of six.... we had the best time! You get a lot of delicious food for a good price and a great atmosphere. We always request Beatrice as our waitress as she is fabulous!

    Good food, modest pricing, free glass of wine (chablis, burgundy or rose). My sister-in-law dreams about the fish soup (too spicey for my delicate palate); I love the honey french salad dressing. Filet steak is fork tender, seafood is always cooked to perfection. Very popular place, tables always full, always a waiting line-up ~ reservations recommended. Opens at 5:30 p.m.; closed Mondays & Tuesdays; but, Redwood Grill next door (fine dining and pricier) is exquisite as well.

    Dined before The Book of Mormon at The Smith Center. Resv. for 5:30 p.m., seated immediately. Our server, Beatriz, was as friendly and nice as could be. I had the chef's creation, blackened red snapper with roasted potatoes, broccoli, salad, bread with fantastic flavored butter, and a glass of wine, $17. OMG, it was soooooo good. My husband had the filet with prawns, roasted potatoes and broccoli, the bread and butter, their fabulous seafood soup, and a glass of wine, $17. He said it was perfect. No room for dessert, but they had lots to choose from. Got our check and was out of there by 6:20 p.m. Couldn't ask for a better meal and certainly cant complain about the service or price. Wouldn't hesitate to eat there again.

    The service was great. Never was my glass or my friends glasses ever empty. The food was really good but it wasn't hot, more like luke warm. But it still tasted great. My Filet was a little more well than I liked. I wanted medium well. There was plenty of food for the price and none of walked away hungry. Thank goodness that we had reservations at 5:30pm or we wouldn't have been able to get in to eat until around 8:30pm. Overrall I would recommend to every one, the service out weighed the warm food and could have only been a fluke thing since there was a party of 20 being served next to us. We didn't feel crowded, there was plenty of room at our tables for our birthday party.

    Shrimp scampi was excellent. My wife's rib eye steak was not to her liking. The cut and taste was more favorable on a previous occasion. I love my German wines. There should be a better wine list for this selection. Overall, we'll be back to try your other dishes.

    When we arrived we were immediately seated. We were given water and bread. It did take some time for our server to get to us. There was a large group they were waiting on as well as at least 3 other tables. Once we were waited on we could not be more pleased with the service. Very polite and attentive to what we wanted. Restaurant was clean and inviting. Would definitely visit again

    You know those restaurants that has a limited menu but one that contains all your favorites? Neither dd I until I visited the Pasta Pirates @ 12 Ogden St. downtown Las Vegas. Both the appetizer and the entrees menu contained all my favorites. I thought I would have to order one of each but my better sense limited it. My wife had the Mixed Seafood mixed in Lemon Basil with Linguine while I had the restaurants signature dish of Fillet and Lobster. These dishes with a starter of Calamari Fritta were excellent. The hotel is on the corner and parking costs $5 but is reimbursed at the cashiers cage with receipts for parking and the restaurant recommended but be prepared for an old fashioned Italian decor.

    I ordered the Filet Mignon/Lobster Tail combo, which was very good. The seafood soup that came with the meal was not to my taste at all. Rice came with the entrée & that was "gummy". The carrot cake was very good, but I think $7 for a slice of it is rather high, regardless of the six layers in each slice.

    For a restaurant inside of a casino this restaurant is a hidden gem! My husband and I spent a week in Las Vegas - stumbled on the restaurant the first time then, made a special trip when we went the second time. We had fish and pasta dishes both times we were there and didn't have a thing we would not re-order another time.
