    Dined on Tuesday Aug 12/14. Kobe meatballs FABULOUS!! The appetizer is one huge round meatball. Easily shared with 4 people. Scallops yummy. The share appy of salami & fromage (cheese) served on wooden platter great to share for 4. Side of asparagus done just right. Chicken parmigano was alright, but presentation was boring. Tomato sauce served with bread & spaghetti excellent. Beautiful ambience. Wine list impressive. This is my 2nd time & I would return again.

    Overall the food and service was very good. However, I HAD to comment on the fact that they charge for soda refills, which is absolutely ridiculous. I think it's rude and insulting to the customer, especially because the glasses to start are relatively small. It was just obnoxious. I hope they fix that. It just turned us off during our dining.

    The food and ther service were great but the music was too loud and not conducive to conversation. The thumping of the music actually detracted from the experience! Couldn't wait to leave! We were also squeezed into the middle of the restaurant and felt like we were sitting with other tables. Not our favorite dining experience in Las Vegas!

    We arrived on time for our reservation, but two of our party of four were running late. The two of us that had arrived were told that we couldn't be seated until our entire party was there. We knew they would be late and may even cancel. We decided to sit at the bar (and spend more than we would have) and wait for the other two. They finally showed and we had our dinner. I HATE this practice and will likely not go back to Lavo.

    My friends and I randomly chose Lavo out of all the other Italian restaurants at the Venetian. It was a perfect choice for our last night in Vegas. Lavo did not disappoint at all. The food was delicious!! The prices are decent for a restaurant right on the Strip and the portions are very generous!! I had the seafood salad to start...it was $21 and was packed with shrimp and lobster. Unbelievable for the price! The chicken parm was the size of the plate....so good! I couldn't finish it all!! When you go, do not walk through the Venetian to get there...the walk is forever!! Instead, walk outside on the Strip. The entrance to the restaurant is directly across the street from Treasure Island. Enjoy!

    we arrived for dinner at 5pm as you opened. we had a nice young lady named sarah as our server. service started out very well till we realized she was the cocktail watress not a regular server. the bar area got real busy real fast and we were left in the dust. she was doing the best she could but it was not fair to her or us to be put in to that kind of situation. someone should of helped her out on her tables she was juggling, also it would of been helpful to know how large your portions were as we ordered way to much as we could of shared some dishes. very disappointed to have to waste as much as we did at those prices.

    Nice place to go to for a meal when in Las Vegas. Food is good if not outstanding. The Baked Clams were oversalted and the Dover sole oversauced. Still edible but could be so much better if more attention was paid to seasonings.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2010VIP
    Dined on 8/3/2014
    Despite having OT reservations and there being empty tables, we still had to wait 15 mins for our table - not really sure why. Service otherwise, was friendly and attentive - a mad scramble to move around patio umbrellas when it started to rain in the desert. Not an everyday occurence, handled with grace. Food portions are fairly large so it makes the standard Vegas hotel strip pricing less painful. Marinara sauce is spot on and garlicy, pasta was cooked al dente. They can be a bit heavy on the salt, as I have experienced multiple times in the past across a variety of dishes. Perhaps forwarn them when you order, if you are sensitive to salt. All in all, a good spot with an awesome view of TI and Mirage.

    We enjoyed the excellent service at the restaurant and were fortunate to be there before it became busy. As it filled up the restaurant started to become a bit noisy - we prefer quieter. My wife's spaghetti and meatballs were excellent. Best meatballs around. My carne pizza was too salty though.

    Lavo was a lot of fun and we'll definitely return. The prices were a little high but that was to be expected considering the amazing location and decor. The food was great--we enjoyed the meatball appetizer and the salmon was amazing. There was a DJ and the place had a lot of energy.

    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. :-(

    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!
