    Italian fine dining! Free pitcher of wine, garlic bread, salad, and a cappucino with your entrees. The best italian deal around vegas. The ambience was very cute and romantic. Service and food was fantastic. Our server was very fast and kind. We will be returning upon our next Vegas visit!

    After receiving recommendations from four different couples, we made reservations via OpenTable. We needed a wheelchair accessible table and Battista's was very accessible and accommodating. The atmosphere was fantastic, the service staff was some of the best we have ever had, and our meals were delicious. We cannot wait to go back in October!!!!

    We dined at this place for 46 years and know the food. Everything changed and for the worse. I don't know what was in my salad---and my wife's soup was mostly water. The bread had powder sprinkled on it to simulate butter. My veal had a water like sauce and tasted terrible--a side of frozen green beans and canned spinach. My wife ordered a dish with meat and there was no meat. She sent it back and the waiter brought the same thing again. At that we left. I had to pay for my meal and her's was deducted. We'll never go back.

    First let me start off with a compliment. Eric and Diego were spectacular servers. There are no complaints there. I very rarely leave bad or negative reviews. However, in this case, Battista‘s Hole in the Wall earned the review that I’m about to give. I have not been there since the 1980s and was very much looking forward to it. That did not last long. We started out with a Salad and Minestrone Soup. The salad was good, no complaints. However the soup was brought to the table barely warm and absolutely tasteless and watery. Probably one of the worst minestrone soups that I’ve ever tasted. Next the Chicken Marsala. It was very tough, tasteless and virtually inedible. It was not served hot, it was mildly warm at best. The green beans were the highlight of this dish. Even the side of pasta that came with it was not up to, what I would describe as, a safe temperature. In fact let’s make this clear right now. I do not believe that any of the dishes that were served to us were served at a safe temperature of 140°. Next on the list was the Linguine and White Clam Sauce. The chopped clams were definitely out of a can. They were tough, chewy and had the aluminum taste of the can. The clams in the shell were probably fresh, yet over cooked and rubbery. The sauce was not your traditional white clam sauce. The dish was not palatable. I left 90% of it on the table. And again it was served barely warm. Such a disappointment. I ordered a side of Meatballs. To little meat and too many bread crumbs. Terrible. And of course they came barely warm. This is the common theme, food served at dangerously low temperatures. Finally the highlight of the night was the Capuchino. It was FANTASTIC. But we come to Italian Restaurants for the food not the coffee. I cannot give Battista’s a favorable review. This restaurant earned a very poor review. Go to Piero’s, The Bootlegger, Ferraro’s or Capo’s. By the way, this was not only my opinion but the opinion of my guest as well.

    Such a fun, old-school Italian experience. Food was EXCELLENT and I still can’t believe the value for Vegas - you get so much for one price. Even endless carafes of wine. Our server was so attentive and friendly. Just be sure to have a reservation. I can’t wait to go back.

    I hate we have to give this historical landmark two stars, but after tonight, that's about the food/service we got. We know everyone has been hit differently since the shut down, and staffing is tight, we get that completely. We were able to sit before our reservation time (which was awesome), but we didn't really know who our server was until about 30 min in. I don't think we ever officially got the "hi, my name is Zena, and I'll be your server." It felt like we were working with two. Both kind of gave attitude toward the end of our meal, probably because they could see our disappointment, but still, wait to get to the back folks before you vent or throw attitude. We were shocked that their huge menu went to one page. We missed reading the history of this place, and the variety is limited (I get that). They still have soup/salad, bread, wine and cappuccino included in the meal, which is also great, we're grateful they're still doing that. However, the quality of food has dropped (and we've eaten here twice before). No flavor or missing specific flavors, felt store bought at some points, and thrown together. The Alfredo had no salt, while the red sauce was too vinegary. It made us sad to see the decline. Even the surprise brownie with two dollops of whip cream, which was incredibly kind, but the small brownie tasted like the 90 calorie Fiber One brownie :-/ I gave it two stars because we do love this place, and we want it to succeed. Hopefully as we continue to evolve out of the pandemic, so will they.

    I have been here multiple times and loved it. The food was not the same at all this time. Stale and tasteless bread, chicken parmesan that was completely swimming in sauce and cheese that it was soggy, and alfredo sauce that seemed that it came from a can. I am so sad... as it used to be my favorite place to eat Italian food in Vegas. :(

    Battista's never disappoints. Highly recommend making a reservation no matter your party size; otherwise, you probably aren't making it in. Dinner is served family style, but there is a $15 minimum per guest. If you don't hit the minimum, there will be a surcharge.

    After many visits to Vegas we finally got to this lovely "hole in the wall". You MUST make reservations as you can't just walk in - we even tried to get in via a phone call and weren't able to get our party of 4 in for a decent dinner time. Using OpenTable we managed to get a time slot and a day that worked for our entire party. It's BUSY - and that's not an understatement. They mean business and they want the majority of your party present for seating otherwise they will take the next group that's all present. You see EVERYONE hustling - wait staff, buss people...and they are moving! The decor is teetering on the brink of kitsch but will keep your eyes busy the whole night. The menu is somewhat fixed with a soup/salad main course and dessert including wine of your choice. There is PLENTY and you won't leave hungry. The wine is pleasant and served in the Italian traditional small glass (about the size of a juice glass) but they drop off a full decanter of red and/or white. The only negative, if that is even possible, is do NOT consider this restaurant for a quiet, slow-paced evening. The table is watched with eagle eyes for you to finish your meal and then is quickly cleared and you are presented with the bill in simple fashion. Eat and get out is 'implied'. Even the pace of the wait staff is such that, although polite and efficient, you can't help but get the 'rushed feeling'. The place was packed and the volume of the room reflects that - it certainly isn't night-club noisy but we found ourselves raising our voices so the people across our table could hear us. The value is certainly off-the charts - where else do you get EVERYTHING included in one price. Compared to the strip this is a welcomed change. We shall be back!
