A word from Rao's - Caesars Palace Las Vegas
The home-cooked meals at Rao’s Las Vegas are magnificent culinary experiences worthy of the Review-Journal’s multiple “Best Las Vegas Italian Restaurant” awards. The time-honored dishes include perfectly cooked pastas, risottos and the mouthwatering steak bistecca; cooked perfectly and sliced tableside. Rao’s Las Vegas Italian restaurant also serves the incomparable Uncle Vincent’s Lemon Chicken, broiled to perfection and sauced with lemon juice, red wine vinegar, olive oil and spices. The classic veal chop is pan-seared and topped with a medley of hot and sweet cherry peppers. Last but not least, Rao’s legendary meatballs taste as if Aunt Anna were still rolling them each morning. Whichever you choose, you are sure to have a Las Vegas restaurant experience worthy of the fine dining legacy Rao’s Las Vegas has established over the last century.Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "We got a recommendation from our waitor to get the meatballs - they were utterly disgusting! Meatballs should be fresh mince but instead they were spongy processed pieces of cr@p! Pedigree Chum-esk!"

  • "If you just want a few bites, not a full meal, before a show at the Colosseum, I highly recommend Raos. Two of us had the meatballs and seafood apply and it was enough to keep us going until a late-night snack. The meatballs are what they are known for and while you really do pay a lefty price, they are great. It's no Fiamma at MGM (which remains the best Italian on the strip (hands down), but its good if you're already at Caesars."

  • "I looked forward to trying Rao's hoping given the stellar reputation of its sister restaurant in East Harlem. What a disappointment....the food at the Vegas Rao's is mediocre and extremely expensive. Terrible value. Recommend you do not eat here because there are much better choices at Caesar's."

  • "Food was delicious! BEST meatballs ever!! Lasagne delicious and the clams were fantastic! It was a great meal! Waiter was wonderful!"

  • "Great place to take a group of people. Typical Italian fair, with generous portions. Very nice and friendly staff. Not overly cheap but then it's Vegas."

  • "We were disappointed in the pasta dishes. My penne was very plain and had little taste. My husband said his clams were not fresh in his linguine with clam sauce. My friend's eggplant entree was substantial and tasty. The wine by the glass is 5 oz. My husband mentioned to our waittress that this was a bit small; soon later the wine steward came and poured us more wine, which was nice. I expected more for the type of restaurant and these prices. The service was excellent."

  • "I was raised in an Italian household and originally exposed to cooking by my talented Sicilian grandmother. Because of this, it has always been difficult for my family and I to dine in, and have an appreciation for, Italian restaurants. In fact, there were only a handful we found acceptable over the years and only one located in the United States. After our dining experience last weekend at Rao's I have discovered new hope for Italian cuisine in the US. This was not only the finest dining experience I've had in an Italian restaurant, but the finest I've experienced in any restaurant. We are already planning a return."

  • "I was very disappointed with Rao. The menu looked great, however the quality of the food was mediocre at best. This was not the type of food I would expect at a popular Las Vegas establishment. There were two of us in the party, we only ordered one appetizer, one pasta and one entree to split. The eggplant parmesan was stiff and tasteless. We have much better food and prices at our local Italian restaurant around the corner. For a $175 dinner, I was extremely disappointed and would never recommend this place."

  • "We ordered the lamb and the ravioli - and had a side of meatballs. Waiter was great and not pushy. Food had depth to the taste and with the bottle of red wine was a good meal. Needed a touch more light as it was fairly dark in the room."

  • "The food is, as they say, like Momma used to make, if your momma was a red sauce expert and a great cook (as my grandmother was). I have eaten here on several trips to Las Vegas and it has never disappointed with its tasty and authentic southern Italian fare. There is no shortage of Italian restaurants in this town but I am not taking this one out of my dining rotation."

  • "Rao's at Caesar's is simply the best Italian food you can get in Vegas. It's not cheap by any means but if you want the best...go to Rao's. We ordered the Caesar salad, pasta bolognese, meatballs and finally the veal parm on the bone. Two of us shared this feast fit for a king at a cost of $200 with tip and 2 drinks."
