Excellent restaurant in all ways food, setting staff, only issue is we had a very load customer next to us that even after 3 requests didn't lower the volume level. Even his friends where upset he really upset about 4 tables around him. Not your fault but it hurt the overall expierence

I thought the food was great but not worth the amount you pay I assume the price is to cover the complimentary wine all in all I’d say I enjoyed myself and would recommend this place

Disappointing. We went there for my fiance's birthday. The prices are expensive for mediocre food ($23-$36 per person)and they offer "unlimited wine and bread" but the wine is bad and they barely come to bring you more.

Table d'hote menu posted on the walls. All meals include choice of soup or salami, 1/2 liter of red or white wine, main course, and capuccino. However, the quality is poor. Italian salad had pieces of sliced deli meat.
Wine surely was a cheap boxed wine. Tomatoe sauce tasted like it came out of a can. And the capuccino served is actually hot chocolate.Not a trace of espresso.

This place is a family tradition for special events and birthdays-- it has been since the '90's.
Last night we celebrated my daughter's 34th birthday and introduced her boyfriend to all that is Batista's. We were especially thrilled to be entertained by Gordy --may he live forever!
The food, as anticipated, was super yummy. The service was impeccable. The environment is fun and kitchy.
The only thing I can ask for is a better Moscato option in the bar. That's it. Everything else is exactly as it should be.

Love it here. A must if going to LasVegas!!
It’s a great place with homemade pasta and a price fix price for meals.
All include a carafe if white or red wine. Soup/salad and entree.
Complete with a cappuccino for dessert.
The accordion player is a little old man that has been there for decades. You want him to stop at your table!!! Trust me!!

Great value for what you get! I’ve been to Vegas many times but it was our first visit here. A great place for couples right off the strip that won’t break the bank like many Vegas places. We had a little wait even with a reservation but it was totally worth it. Our favorite foods were the garlic bread and cappuccino although everything was very good. Lasagna and spaghetti with meatballs were our main entrees. Don’t miss this place if you are in Vegas and want a reasonable romantic dinner!

We were two couples visiting Vegas and like the sound of Battista’s based on the website and reviews. We decided to try it, it was everything it was advertised. We had a good italian meal at a fair price. Our only complaint was the cappuccino was really hot chocolate.

Battista's does not disappoint! The experience (and it is an experience) is authentic Italian cooking with an outpouring of Italian hospitality. This trip I was able to bring some Italian relatives with me and they loved it. We were six adults and two children. The cost was low to moderate (minimum $13 per person, not including the children). The menus are posted on the walls and before we even ordered the waiters put a carafe of wine on the table and asked how many wanted soup and how many wanted salad. We were literally eating before we ordered. Almost every major chef in the world has a presence in Las Vegas and Battista's will still be a must experience when we visit the town. The restaurant is located off the strip; barely. It is in a strip mall one block east of South Las Vegas Blvd., behind the Cromwell at the intersection of Flamingo Road and South Linq Lane. HIGHLY recommended.

19 years ago we bought R E property right right next to it sight unseen.
So we stumbled literaly upon it.
Love the place.
Don’t book New Years.
You might get my table.
Wine and Capacino included.
Service by a very friendly and attentive staff is alesys a pleasure.
The photos on the walls of old Vegas celebs that visited here makes for a good memory lane and gives it the non-corporate, family dining experience some cherish.
Probably just the way
Mr. Battista is now famous for.
Buon Appetito
Buon Viaggio

Food was really good. Service was short and cut from the server. I loved the accordion player, but he does the spiel for every table. Will try again and see how a different server changes the experience. The vibe and morale seemed to be much of the same though.
