Perfect everything. Go every time you are in Vegas. On the monorail stop for Flamingo about 100 yards from the elevator at the stop.

The food has been spectacular for the 20 years I have been going here for dinner. The bar is fantastic as is the ambiance. Portions are over the top large and it is not possible to find a bad choice on the menu. Bottomless wine with every meal and a great salad or soup to start with crunch bread.

The only thing that can go poorly is if you don’t make a reservation for every party size.

The best!!

Great Vegas find. We will be back! I loved the simple menu. The chicken rio was delicious. The main meal was not too much so we were fully satisfied but not overly stuffed.

It’s been too many years since I enjoyed Battista’s. I used to eat there on Las Vegas trips with my father. He passed several years ago. My trips to L.V. Have continued but somehow I had forgotten about this wonderful restaurant. I feel like I have rediscovered an old friend. I intend to enjoy Battista’s with my children and their spouses on all future trips.

This was our third time going to the restaurant and we weren't disappointed. The noise level was excessive this trip because of one intoxicated female who was sitting behind us, which made our section very loud. In general, though, we have not experienced this before. Servers were great! Fast and courteous. Neat little spot to go to in Vegas. Bonus for me was that they offer Gluten Free pasta as well!!

I can't believe I've walked past the restaurant for 30 years, and never went in until this past weekend. What was I thinking. ... I"ll definitely visit next time we are in Vegas.

Thanks to the amazing wait staff and chefs for taking care of my dietary restrictions, and their amazing service.

Back room seating was a little tight and air temp was a little warm. The server for our table had been at the restaurant for 30 years but was not that attentive to our table. Steak was served COLD and the water boy for our table handled our complaint by taking it back to the kitchen. Our server never came back to our table to apologize or check on anything. Very disappointing. We made sure that we gave our water boy a nice tip! Food was ok but I’ve had much better Italian food, and the steak was thin and definitely not worth $40.

The food was delicious and plentiful. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. We were seated within 10 minutes of our reservation time followed quickly by wine, water, soup, salad etc. Overall a very positive dining experience.

Friendly welcome, no waiting with a reservation, food was excellent, service was great and not overwhelming, the included wine was a good Italian table wine (red was not as dry as expected; white had an odd taste), cappuccino was a sweet after dinner addition instead of dessert.

Just OK... did not live up to the hype we heard from others prior to our visit. Prefix pricing is a good deal for the wine included and 3-course meal. Veal Marsala sauce was a bit too thick and sweet, meatballs were yummy but over salted and sauce was bitter. Atmosphere is nostalgic fun. Noise level was low since we dined late the day after Jan 1 and the place was empty. It was fun to experience a legendary Vegas restaurant, but likely will not return for a second visit.

Never disappoints! Always try to get to Battista's when we are in Vegas but have missed it the last several times. We couldn't get a reservation until late but we got there early and had drinks and they were able to get us in before our scheduled reservation. Don't miss it!

Waiter was worse ever seen. The runner/busboy was fantastic and only reason we didn’t leave early. Waiter took order and never appeared again..at all. I saw him on way out and told him he was horrendous. He replied’”yep, have a nice night”. Spoke to manger and he didn’t seem surprised and appeared to not really care. Food was great, ambiance was great, service was unacceptable.

Always good food, house wine is great and the cappuccino at the end is outstanding. If you get to see the accordion player it’s even more fun.
