A word from Scarpetta - The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas
An earthy yet sophisticated approach to Italian cuisine, Scarpetta was created by award-winning chef Scott Conant and features a soulful menu of seasonally-inspired fare. An Italian expression that means “little shoe”, or the shape bread takes when used to soak up a dish, Scarpetta represents the pure pleasure of savoring a meal down to the very last taste. Try a signature dish such as Sicilian-Spiced Duck Breast, Seared Sea Scallops with Sunchokes or Spaghetti with Tomato and Basil.

    We started with polenta w/ truffled mushrooms, and salad w/ burrata and roasted beets. We wanted to lick the polenta bowl when we finished. The beets were tasty, too, but the Polenta.... Molto Bene!! Lobster Pici, was fantastic, but the chili pesto was a bit overpowering. Short Rib & Bone Marrow agnolotti, rich, luscious. Raviolini w/ ricotta and truffle, very tasty. Veal tortellini, each bite was perfectly savory w/ a touch of sweetness.

For dessert, we ordered the Amedei chocolate cake and Bomboloni, both of which were "the bomb!". Luis and the rest of the staff were fantastic, and we felt like they bent over backwards to make sure we had a fantastic experience. Oh yeah... and we had a great view of the Bellagio fountains while we ate.

    The tasting menu with wine pairings was literally the most amazing meal I've ever had in my life. Eight dishes, paired exceptionally with eight wines, including a dessert port; it was phenomenal. The creamy polenta is a must try. All of their pastas are made in house and are cooked aldente, to perfection! If I could hug and kiss Scott Conant myself to thank him, I would. However a bigger thank you to the wait staff and chefs at Scarpetta for making the experience so memorable. It was the highlight of our Vegas trip (and we have been so several upscale fine dining establishments around the world!)... But this was just very special. Bravo!

    Food was really good, although I was unimpressed with the Spaghetti with basil sauce.. just meh, and I've had better in many places. The filet mignon was amazing. ..The most tender I've ever had in many years of eating steak. Service was disappointing...we were literally the first people in the dining room at 6pm and sat for 5 minutes before one of the 10 serving staff who were standing talking in the room came over to serve us. Beautiful view of the Belaggio fountains added to ambiance but restaurant has the casino music piped in which was not in character with the Italian theme and detracted from the overall ambiance and experience.

    Made reservations on open table after reading the reviews. We were seated promptly when we arrived and had a FANTASTIC view of the Bellagio fountain. We had two servers, one was poor and the other was average. I ordered the polenta appetizer and I honestly did not understand what all the excitement is about. I did not like and nobody at the table did either. There was no taste/flavor to the dish at all. The tuna appetizer was very good. For dinner the homemade veal tortellini was outstanding as was lamb. The guys ordered steaks and the New York strip was way better than the filet. My husbands filet was very rare, which he ordered medium but neither of our two servers asked it was cooked correctly. Doubt that we will go back

    I love Scarpetta in NYC and I was excited to try the Scarpetta in Vegas, because I was meeting up with friends who had never been to the Scarpetta in NYC. I have to admit that I was a tad disappointed. I think the Scarpetta in NYC is better. This is not to say that the pasta isn't delicious and that the food isn't great. It is great, but I didn't think the pasta was quite up to the level I was expecting.

    the wine list is great! We had a super Tuscan, which is good as always. With a price just under 100, the mark-up is not crazy. appetizer: scallop foie gras was a little over cooked. ravioli with duck and foie gras: lacking foie gras. they were being cheap. could not taste it. duck breast: it was ok. nothing special. no wow factor. could have had this dish from any restaurant in vegas.

    One of our favs in Vegas! It's a hidden gem. Scarpetta was absolutely delicious (scallops, wag yu beef, spaghetti etc) every single morsel of food just melt in your mouth. Our server (don't know his name but he was from Trinidad) was also excellent! He was soo nice and accommodating (not pompous like other highend dinning servers) he made excellent recommendations without "pitching" and tended our table with great attention. Everything about our experience was excellent and we look forward to our next visit to Scarpetta!

    The food was fantastic. My pasta and my girlfriend's pasta dishes were both so good, we could have easily switched plates. The wine selections were excellent, and our server was very knowledgeable about them, giving us good recommendations. One thing to anticipate when you visit: the bread basket is delicious- particularly the stromboli roll. The basket is served with three different spread, which are all pleasing. Great spot.

    I went on a first date here and we both ordered the Signature Tasting Menu which was 6 courses plus additional dishes the chef decides to bring out. Also, we decided to live it up by doing the Wine pairings with each course. My faves: Yellowtail sashimi & sushi; creamy polenta; spaghetti (yes... the best spaghetti ever!!!); and the chocolate brownie desert w/ amaretto ice cream. OMG! Delish!! On a separate note, my date wasn't as exciting as the dishes and wine that were being served. LOL

    We had the lamb and filet. Holy moly. They were cooked to perfection! Like, melt in your mouth perfection. And the portion sizes were perfect. We also split the polenta appetizer which was also to die for. My only complaint is that the wine prices were outrageous. So we ordered the reasonably priced cocktails instead. I miss the lamb already.

    This was one of the best meals we have ever had. We went for our anniversary and from start to finish it did not disappoint. We had a view of the Bellagio fountains. We chose to do the tasting menu with the wine pairing. It was amazing and delicious. The service was also amazing. The waiter was very attentive, our plates were cleared in a timely manner and my water was always filled. Some of my favorite items were the creamy polenta with mushrooms, the diver scallop, the spaghetti and the short rib agnolotti. We also met the chef who was really nice. The meal was expensive but we knew what we were in for when we went there. If you are looking for a delicious meal, a great environment I would definitely recommend coming here!
