A word from Zeffirino
Zeffirino focuses on the finest Italian fare from exotic seafood to meat dishes cooked to perfection. The dinner menu arrays specialties from all regions of Italy. A culinary treat awaits all who dine at Zeffirino. The decor is rich and sophisticated, elegant with gothic undertones.

    One of the best meals I have ever eaten was black truffle risotto at Zefferino's! Happily, it's still on the menu with a slight variation, truffle butter and wild mushrooms but no shaved black truffles however, a delicious treat! Service was professional, prompt and friendly. Wine list...amazing! Although we didn't order from the fixed price menu it was afforable with many options. This is our go to Vegas place. Make a reservation to sit over looking St Mark's Square and if you're really lucky you'll meet the owner of Zefferino's!

    We loved Zeffirino. The food was so delicious and the very menu was extensive with options for everyone. The wait staff was knowledgeable and friendly as well. Since it overlooks the canal in the Venetian we had great views of all that was happening below. We loved it there and would go back again!

    I have been to Zeffirino several times, usually when attending Vegas for trade shows and have never been disappointed. The food is fantastic and the service is always exceptional. They have a great wine list with many hard to find bottles from the Tuscan region of Italy with very reasonable prices. Bravo!

    The food was outstanding - all seven of us had different foods from steaks to seafood pasta to straight seafood. You must ask for a table upstairs overlooking the canal (inside the Venetian Hotel). The ambience and scenery, even though indoors, was very romantic and quiet (except for the gondoliers singing opera). We had a 7:00 PM show to go to in the same hotel and we had to keep encouraging the waiter to server dinner so we could make the show. It's a little hard to find - go up on the canal level and look for the Banana Republic store. Inspite of the timeframe I highly recommend Zifferino's to everyone!

Service is always excellent and the food is delicious. My husband was treated with a delectable dessert. Thank you for a wonderful dining experience.

    My group visited two days in a row for lunch because they were very happy with their first days lunch. Our second visit was not on par with day one. The food seemed bland with not enough seasoning and there was a lack of "taste" with the dishes although their presentation was lovely. Hit and miss but at the prices they charge I don't want to pay for any misses.

    Love looking out on the canal. Food should have been much better for the price. The minestrone was missing broth and flavor. My sea bass was good but the potatoes were boring and cold. I didn't like the desserts that came with the $50 price fix dinner and I love most desserts. My daughter loved her pesto pasta. Husband not impressed. Head waiter was snobby.

    My husband and I celebrated our 45th Wedding Anniversary with a lovely dinner at Zeffirino. Our waiter (Alesandro) was attentive and knowledgeable. Our dinner was outstanding (Chilean Sea Bass for my husband and Baccala for me....the baccala was as good as my Nana's). Even an artfully beautiful and delicious dessert was prepared just for us! I am Italian and I am very "fussy" about how food is prepared and served.....Zeffirino's chef gets an A+ from me! When we visit Las Vegas again, Zeffirino is definitely on our "must do" list! Thank you for a perfect dinner! Bellissimo!!

  • Rude and uninviting
    Rindy
    Dined on 7/4/2014
    Horrible! They're listed under casual dining, but then try to act like they are supreme high end when you are there. They seem to be under the impression that rude equals high class. One lady came over and put our napkins on our laps for us without ever looking at us or saying a word. She continued to bring water, and never once responded to us or looked at us even if we talked to her. Then there was this stern "pit boss" walking back and forth intimidating the whole room. He also never smiled at us! Hello people, a little warmth in an Italian restaurant is a must! The food unfortunately did not make up for the experience. Management needs to seriously rethink their attitude. We went elsewhere for coffee and dessert.

    Food was mediocre at best. No help from the waiter. I had fettuccine pasta slopped on top of a lobster that was mostly all shell. While eating, I had to pick out the shrimp and return them so they could be cooked more thoroughly. Rather than give me new shrimp, the waiter returned to me one of my half eaten shrimp and a second shrimp. My wife's veal Marsala was run of the mill. Her glass of wine was maybe 3 to 4 ounces.

    Our 2PM lunch reservation was honored on time at a table with a perfect view of the "canal". Service was timely and friendly, but not overwhelming. Food was well prepared and portioned for a late lunch. Wine selection was as expected of a well established Italian Restaurant. My 86 year old Mother was made to feel very special when requesting an amendment to the dish she ordered and reciving an immediate "yes, of course we can do that for you" response. And, of course, she was the recipient of a delisiosso birthday dolce!

    This is a beautiful restaurant with great food and good ambiance. However, the hostess and the waiters were not the friendliest people they seemed a bit bothered every time we asked for something. The man playing the violin was amazing and made my birthday a very special one. If you are going to visit this restaurant you better have deep pockets and not to much hunger as their servings are small. Over all its a nice place but way over priced.

    Our server was extremely passionate about the wines. We had an amazing Italian wine which was served very well and described in great detail, if that matters at all. The fried calamari was the best I've ever had. Not too much breading and it was rubbery at all. I'm not sure u could have possibly been cooked better actually. Other seafood was very good as well. Good quality. Dessert is a little lacking but wasn't bad by any means. Just not very impressive.

    We always find time for Zeffirino when we are in Vegas. Not pretentious, but great Italian food without food portions that are excessive. This was a great choice since we were seeing a show at the Venetian that night and wanted to avoid traffic hassles. We always get a nice table overlooking the "canal" .
