I really enjoyed my Birthday meal at the Bootlegger. I had the Linguini with Claim Sauce which was excellent. I also loved the little bread bites that they give you with the meal. The service was also really good. The only thing I did not like was where I was seated. I was alone and was at this high table near the bar that seems like it was thrown there. The only other minor thing was that I mentioned that it was my birthday when marking the reservation but they never acknowledged it. I did not mention it but it would have been nice. Even with the small issues all the fed I had was delicious and I really enjoyed my meal.

Best Italian food in town. The Mussels in spicy marinara and Calamari were perfectly cooked. I suggest the New York strip with the French sauté. My girlfriend loved the orange roughy. Great ambiance. Great service every time.

Wonderful service. Live entertainment. The most amazing and talented harpist was on stage and strummed a variety of songs. So many great choices on the menu. I cannot wait to return soon!

Excellent and authentic Italian food. I am Italian and since both sets grandparents immigrated from Italy and were excellent cooks, I feel somewhat qualified to say this. Waitstaff are professional yet friendly and welcoming. Generous portions. They even have a few draw poker machines at the bar. Very impressed with their Covid precautions. Love the ambiance too!

I enjoy coming here every time I am in Vegas. The only reservation I could get was 3pm so I took it. The food, the service all were excellent like every other time I had been there. Obviously it was a lot quieter at that time and I missed the piano dude, but nothing else was lacking. I am never disappointed. Brought in some friends and converted them too!

I have always enjoyed my times at The Bootlegger. The staff are very accommodating and the food is excellent. I had my favorite entree this visit which is their pollo Angelo.
It was a little different lunch experience in light of the Covid-19 restrictions, but the Bootlegger followed all the appropriate guidelines for safety and we felt quite safe.

Decided on this as a nice place that is off the strip for our visit. The atmosphere is very 'Old Vegas' with Frank Sinatra photos on the wall and a crooning piano player. The server put a lot of effort into finding options from the menu for me since I am lactose intolerant. I ended up ordering the Seafood fra Diavolo which was very good. My daughter had a seafood linguini which she said was delicious. The two of us thoroughly enjoyed every aspect of the meal and highly recommend the experience.

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.
