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.

  • Very good meal but not worth the price

    While the service was excellent, the food was very good and the presentation lovely, our meal was definitely NOT worth the out of sight prices for some of the offerings. Imagine getting 4 very small, very thin slices of yellowtail sashimi for $19 or a veal chop for $55!! Both dishes were good but not different from similar dishes at other restaurants. Nothing unique or memorable about either--except for the price. If you do go, I would recommend the duck breast and the pastas. But again, I just don't understand why someone would spend that kind of money and leave feeling ripped-off. You're better off at Michael MIna's where at least the dishes are creative and unique.

    We enjoyed the tasting menu, a relative bargain within the overall price structure of this restaurant. We also enjoyed the wine pairing. The tasting menu is a tour of their signature dishes, with the pastas being the strongest courses overall. Only one wayward course kept this from being an exceptional meal, and the waiter responded well to the miss, offering an alternative course or an additional dessert course. Service overall was exceptional. Clearly a well-trained staff, professional in all aspects. The view of the Bellagio fountains is of course spectacular.

    We were in Vegas for Halloween weekend with a few friends and wanted a place to have a nice meal and escape the madness of the strip. Scarpetta was fantastic. We had a reservation for 5 people at 9:30. We sat in a booth with a view of the fountains. The staff went out of their way to provide us with exceptional service. Our server Titus, was crucial in making this an amazing meal for us. His wine selections were fantastic and just to our taste. Each course was better than the last, but overall everything impressed us. My favorite was the foie gras ravioli. I will make it a point to return here if even just for a drink each time we visit Vegas.

    We had 6 pm reservations, so it was empty & quiet. Our table overlooked the bellagio fountains but we didn't see the show. Our food was great; polenta was like a hot cereal but cool & full of tasty mushrooms. I had the Agnoletti & husband had the black cod. Both were delicious & well prepared. Our server was nice & attentive and 2 others kept their eye on us to refill wine & water. We enjoyed it so much we are returning with our group of 7 3 days later.

    I was pleasantly surprised by this restaurant. It is one of the few in Vegas that you can have a romantic dinner. The tables are not so close so that you feel you are on top of other people. My wife raved about the Spaghetti and I had the burrata beet salad and it was fantastic and beautiful. The waitstaff was pleasant and attentive. One of the best in Vegas.

    The atmosphere was good and the view looking over the fountains was beautiful at night. The food was ok; American-Italian rather than being true to Italy, I expected more authenticity. Our waiter was rude- we asked a few different questions and his tone of voice when answering was condescending and uninterested. One of our party asked for the ravioli when they meant to say raviolini; the person corrected themselves and he proceeded to repeat the word raviolini slowly several times. Raviolini isn't even an authentic Italian dish- it's an American thing! I wouldn't go here again or recommend it.

    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.

    We were excited about going to Scarpetta for dinner in L.V. The Scarpetta in L.A. is a real hot-spot and wanted to see how the Las Vegas version compared. Well it was a disappointment. It certainly wasn't bad by any stretch, but not what we were expecting/hoping for. I think part of the disappointment was where we were seated. One of the draws of Scarpetta is the view of L.V. - well, we were put in a dark location without a view of anything but a few other tables. The food was good, but not memorable, as was the service. Again, it certainly wasn't a bad experience, just not up to what we expected.

    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.
