    Lavo was excellent. Our table ended up by the bathroom, next time I would ask to not sit there because there was a lot of traffic around our table. Other than that, the food and the staff were fantastic!!!! Will 100% return on our next trip.

    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.

    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.

    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

    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.

    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!

    Overall, a pretty good dining experience. Nice vibe, good service, but a bit overpriced for what you get. $24 for Pasta Marinara is a bit steep IMO. $6 for an extra serving of garlic bread is flat out unreasonable. The Meatball appetizer was definitely the highlight.

    We ate here on our last night in Vegas i have travelled to this city many times and eaten in alot of the restaurants and the standards are high, Lavo's menu looked great and as we were staying in the Venetian i thought we would check it out. The meatball appetiser was the speciality and i have to say was superb, the service was great at this point. Once we finished the appetiser this is when it went down hill within seconds our main course was brought out far too early we had no time to digest the huge appetiser. We sent the food back and asked to wait at least 15 - 20 mins until our next dish? Sadly this seemed to have been taken offensively as the food that followed was awful bland, overcooked and of a diner standard we returned 1 dish.

    If you walk out of here hungry, something's wrong. Portions are very big and quality is great. Kobe meatballs are incredible. Al dente pasta and sauces are a must try. Varied menu with something for everyone. Extensive wine list too. Worthwhile Italian restaurant in a town of mostly restaurant mediocrity.

    Food was average, and service was disappointing. After forgetting one entree, the waitress response was, "Where's your meal? Oh, sorry." It came eventually ... after everyone else was finished. After a major screw - up like this, the restaurant seemed not to care and even had the nerve to compute on the bill, for our convenience, how much a 22% tip would be. This place is over - priced, very noisy, and pretentious.

    Long story short I was able to get us in for the time we wanted on a Saturday night with around 24 hours notice and that was just the start of good things with LAVO. The staff was attentive, but not overbearing and made us all feel comfortable after answering menu questions and honoring our special request. The garlic bread with sauce was by far the best I have had from an Italian restaurant, our drinks appeared quickly and never ran dry, our appetizers arrived hot and tasted AMAZING, then our entrees came out absolutely as ordered and ever single person at the table could not stop talking about how good theirs was. The Meatball app is a must, along with the chicken park, spaghetti bolognese and much more. you must try LAVO!!!
