I heard about this restaurant years ago and always wanted to go there. It was so good 😊! I enjoyed all the memorabilia.

 (Los Angeles)·Dined 3 days ago

We were celebrating my friend’s birthday and had a good time. The service was great and they surprised my friend with a delicious dessert with a birthday candle that added to the experience. The food we ordered from the least expensive tier of items was well prepared as were the small antipasti, garlic bread, side pasta and cappuccino—all included. The complementary house red and white wine was a nice but unnecessary touch since we are not drinkers. Some of the seafood pasta items sounded delicious but were too pricy for us to try. We went on a Monday so perhaps that was the accordion player’s night off. If you’re expecting the music as I was, you should probably check in advance.

The meal comes with soup or salad which is a nice touch. My husband had the chicken Parmesan and loved it. I had the one with the sausage and was disappointed. The sausage was tough and would have been better sliced up. I would rather pay less and not get the house wine and special drink after the meal. It is a fun place but certainly not a place for romance as there were many large groups there celebrating. Very loud

Must visit every time we are in Vegas. Great food, large portions and house wine and cappuccino are included. Limited desserts, however, the cheesecake is to die for.

My lasagna was amazing. Two in our party had chicken dishes. The chicken was kind of spongy and seemed under cooked. Hard to tell in the lighting. One did not eat the chicken. The other ate a few pieces she had horrible diarreah within 2 hours. I have eaten here a few times and this has not happened before. Before this experience we have e always loved to eat here. Probably would never order chicken again.

One of the best places for Italian food in Vegas. Unusual and fun atmosphere.

Service was always there when needed. We were fortunate to have arrived ahead of a big rush.

Will be back every time we’re in Vegas!

We had seen this restaurant several times in our travels to Las Vegas over the years, but we had never tried it. It did not disappoint! The little man who went table to table playing his accordian was precious! He asked where we were from, and when we told him Louisiana, he played "Jambalaya, crawfish pie, filet gumbo......!" The service was excellent, and the food was very good. I would definitely recommend it.

Hostess was extremely professional! Even when a lady was extremely rude to her. Customer was out of line and this hostess was still professional and never even raised her voice. Being in the customer service industry myself, I’m very impressed with this young lady. As far as food and ambience this place is great! I have told all my friends back home to visit here!

It was nice to see or experience old Vegas. The food was okay I'm Italian so I might be a little biased. I'd say the only thing negative is I think it's really expensive and the table wine was terrible. But give it a test yourself the ambience is worth it.

We originally went here the night we were married 25 years ago. We returned 25 years later to find this to be the best Italian Restaurant ever!!!!! The seating arrangement seems a little tighter, but that may be due to the timelapse (i.e. age now) - but, other than that, this is a great restaurant and alot of fun!!!!

I like it, but wished the serving size wasn't so large. Although the price fit the serving size. If there was a half order option that would be great.

We didn't get there in time for the accordian guy, but wished we had the opportunity to say hello!

We always love Battista’s, it’s a must visit for us whenever we’re in Las Vegas. It’s old school Italian with the right vibe. The portions are generous and every meal comes with house wine and a cappuccino.

We ordered spaghetti and meatballs, chicken Alfredo, lasagne and eggplant Parmesian. Sauces were awful and eggplant Parmesian was burnt and dry. So disappointed as we were looking forward to a delicious Italian dinner after flying in. I appreciate that the server took off the charge for my uneaten eggplant parmesian but at the prices that we were aware of what they charge beforehand, we obviously would have rather have had a delicious meal
