Old restaurant just off the strip. Make a reservation as they’re always busy. Food is good, portions large. Service efficient and quick. Reasonable pricing.

The food was very good. The free house wine they can do without it. It did not live up the deliciousness of the good food. Tends to get very noisy in the smaller dining areas, especially with big parties. The wait staff were pleasant and efficient. All in all its a very traditional place with a log history in vegas

This is a true Italian restaurant. The food was excellent, service was excellent, and we were taken to our table promptly at our reservation time. It really could not have been better, and was a great value for the money!

It’s a fun concept and interesting to see. Food was okay but have had much better in Vegas. Fun for the experience. The bread was fantastic! Might go back for just that. Cappuccino at the end was a nice finish.

Battista's was highly recommended by friends. I ordered the mozzarella sticks, fried ravioli & veal parmigiana, being from NYC I was expecting a GOOD Italian dinner. I couldn't have been more disappointed!!! The sticks & ravioli tasted like frozen food!!! The veal parmigiana & pasta sauce was VERY SALTY!!! The food is NOT CHEAP!!! I DO NOT mind paying for GOOD FOOD..... THIS WAS NOT GOOD FOOD!!!!! I WILL NOT RETURN & WILL NOT RECOMMEND TO FRIENDS & FAMILY!

Went to Vegas and stayed at Caesars to see Celine. She cancelled the buffet was book for a private party and Hell’s Kitchen had no reservations... This was one of those times where things happen for a reason. Went to eat Italian and it was definitely the best meal we had on our visit!!!!

Very nice experience. Generous portion. Free wine. Free parking & since we took advantage of the free wine they let us keep our car there & walk around a bit before driving home. The restaurant is large but separated into intimate areas of 6 *\- tables. Love the accordion player.

Nothing really stands out at this restaurant. Everthing was fried and the drowning in sauce. Did not care for the red sauce at all. Service was good however

I brought my boyfriend here for his 21st birthday. We had such a great night, the food was great, the wine was great, it was just overall great. The cappuccino at the end was SO GOOD. Can’t wait to come back and try something else off of the menu! Oh, and of course, drink more wine!

Food was very good. Authentic! Fun, amazing decor and ambiance. Although the service was prompt and efficient, our waiter had zero personality and seemed cranky and not interested in answering our questions. He was a disappointment in an otherwise nice dinner.

If you are in Vegas, you must go here. So much history and character. Food is good Italian fare. The veal is my go to every time whether piccata or parmesan.
Free house wine with your meal and its actually good wine. Service is always great and the accordion player has been there for decades

We have been enjoying NYE dinner at Battistas for 19 years. Love the Burgundy included and who doesn't like the feel of old Vegas and great Italian right in the heart of the Las Vegas Strip since 1970. Love it.

Since Battista’s is a landmark I assumed the dining experience would be exemplary but boy was I wrong. While the wine, salad and cappuccino were very good the entree was disappointing. First ordered veal picante and after one bite sent it back - very thick and tuff. Changer for Garlic shrimp and it was ok but a new chef is in order. Sorry but my experience was not a good one for my favorite veal dish

Classic Italian food served in an iconic setting. The meals are not inexpensive, but the portions are large and the food is good. The memorabilia, that covers everything, is worth the visit. Definitely get reservations.

We heard about this restaurant on a vlog and decided to try it on our annual trip to Vegas. We were not disappointed. The atmosphere was casual and romantic and the food was fantastic. The cappuccino was the perfect way to end the meal. We will definitely be back.
