Best marinara sauce I have ever tasted. The lasagna was equally great. All courses were great. I have recommended this facility to multiple people that were equally impressed. The ambiance was very enjoyable and a great reminder of the history of Las Vegas.

My boyfriend and I had dinner here, and we both really liked it. The food was delicious (I had the manicotti and he had lasagna), and they were super generous with the portions. The garlic bread was divine, so we kind of had filled up on bread and wine by the time the food came, so we both had to take most of our entrees to go. The service staff was very attentive and pleasant. At one point, a huge party of 30 or so came without a reservation, which filled the lobby a lot and made travelling to and from the restroom kind of a hassle. This wasn't the restaurant's fault, though.

When we fly into Vegas Battista’s is always one of our stops for dinner.
If you love good Italian food at reasonable prices this is a place for you.
Not far off the strip a 2-3 minute walk from the Linq strip and you are there.

Old -style Italian Restaurant in Las Vegas near Bally's and The Flamingo...
Much memorbila--pictures of stars from the past, baskets and wine bottles on the ceiling...
Wishing Sinatra would walk in from the past with his bodyguards---he was there many, many
years ago...
Enjoyed the salad and unlimited wine ..especially liked the Cappachino a nice finish to the meal..
Had manacotti...would get meatballs and spaghetti next time..
Did not see or hear the accordian player...was hoping to....neaded to hear some Italian music
coming from somewhere to add to the atmosphere..
Had a reservation--needed for Valentine's Day
Very nice server....
Will go back and try again....very reasonable by Vegas standards

Valentine’s dinner... we have been to this restaurant several times. it’s our quirkey retro Italian go to for a fun night in Vegas. Normally we get great service but not this visit... was rather disappointing. The bartender was great but the hostess/manager? and waiter ruined our experience. The older red headed hostess was curt, rushed (the place wasn’t busy enough to warrant reflecting stress ) and generally rude. The waiter was less than happy... so much so I thought he was joking but he’s wasn’t. Have had better service at a truck stop. When we go out to dinner we go to have a good time... we didn’t. Actually not sure we will ever go back there based off this visit. Only gave the rating I did because we have been there before and enjoyed. Good luck to you all!

The food was very good and the atmosphere was great! The warm garlic bread was very tasty. The red and white wine which came with the meals was an added touch. The old autographed photos from Hollywood celebs and Vegas stars that were on the walls made you feel like it is a part of Old Vegas. The acordian player that went from table to table connecting with each table in some way and singing a short song just for them made it extra special!

Came with reservation that we made three weeks prior and were early by about 25 min. so went for a drink after letting the hostess and maitre'd know and they said they would be able to get us seated in about 10 to 15 mins. We sat facing them about 15 feet away and watched while nearly 40 people came in in a rush and got seated without reservations. So I asked if our reservation was ready and was told they had tried to call us, which was not true at all, and then the maitre'd came to seat us but did not even check for a reserved table just took us back to a narrow over filled room at a small table for two when many of the guests who came in with no reservations got much larger and nicer tables. That and the lasagne was not made with cheese it just had some slices melted on the top. All in all a lot of not very good food and really poor service for guests who had reservations.

I went to this restaurant the first time I went to Las Vegas back in the 1970's, and it is as good today as it was back then. I thought i would have trouble finding it again because i had forgotten its name. But luckily I ran across a tiny ad for Battista's when I visited Las Vegas again in February 2019. I knew it was the restaurant i was looking for because the ad said they serve complimentary wine and cappuccino with meals. I had fond memories of the cappuccino back in the 1970's. The food, service and atmosphere were all excellent. The roaming accordian player added a nice touch. I will definitely go back the next time I am in Vegas.

Don't drink wine or cappuccino but had to pay for both. Had the Steak Caruso. Server said it was a filet smothered with peppers and onions. I ordered it medium rate. It was actually a filet of shoeleather smothered in steamed tasteless watery zucchini. A glass of water has more taste than this train wreck. Their tables are so dark so you can't see the food which in this case was a blessing. Server was nice but her charm not enough to overcome a $31 plate of lasagna and a $36 piece of tasteless rawhide. HUGE TOURIST TRAP. BEWARE. I've had better meals at hospital cafeterias!

We've gone to this restaurant everytime we've come to Las Vegas over the past 10 years or more. Have had consistent wait staff service and very food quality every time. This past visit was one of the best. Excellent house wine, excellent service and meals were consistently good. Read a number of reviews dissing the house wine selection included with meals. Take those with a grain of salt. The wine we were served was a nice semi dry California burgundy. If you like sweet, syrupy wine, then don't gripe that the house wine is no good.
