Always an enjoyable experience dining at The Bootlegger! The atmosphere is always welcoming and relaxing and we really enjoy the live piano music in the dining room. We love the little garlic bread pieces with the dipping sauce that are complimentary with every meal. The house lasagna is outstanding - a definite favorite and a "must try" if you haven't already - and the chicken parm is on point. Save room for dessert because the tiramisu is homemade and to die for!

This was our first time in Las Vegas in quite some time. We went to bootleggers restaurant four times in one week. I feel it’s the best Italian food that we have ever tasted and that includes the East Coast.

Very covid friendly. I wish we could have been sat somewhere other then the bar area as I heard a piano playing somewhere else and that would have been a nice added bonus to the atmosphere. The food was amazing.

Need to update online menu as two of us saw chick cacciatore and another dish online but was not on actual menu. Had to get server to take order. Dinner was delicious on all fronts, servers filled water glasses throughout meal; Caesar salad dressed perfectly. Without a doubt will be back.

Live piano and good food. Polite, friendly and welcoming staff. My husband had a wonderful ribeye steak and I enjoyed the salmon ravioli with lemon cream sauce. Old Vegas style charm, clean, comfortable and delicious. We returned for breakfast the next day on our way out of town. Plenty of convenient parking. Open 24/7 .

A great experience. Lots of items to choose from. I was able to sample something from everyone's plate and everything was so good. The live entertainment (George Bugatti) was very talented. I will definitely put this on my "go to" list.
