We enjoyed the bradycardia and main dish but didn't think they were anything really special. I was disappointed that the parmesean cheese was just a cup of kraft and not fresh. The live harp music was a nice bonus.

We read good reviews about Bootlegger bistro so we wanted to get off the Las Vegas strip and give it a try. we sat in the bar and we enjoyed the atmosphere in a nice comfortable booth. The food and drinks were great. So if your on the Las Vegas strip and want to try great Italian food, this the place to go.

Based on reviews we decided to try it out. The food was very good. I had theScallopini do Loraine which was very good with fettuccine Alfredo. The veal Saltimbucco was very good and a very large portion.
Loved listening to the piano player.

It was worth the trip off the strip

The building and atmosphere were retro and very cool. We had mussels and lasagna and both were great. The complementary garlic bites were also delicious. Finished it off with a bottle of wonderful Chianti. Service was also excellent, friendly and attentive, but not too much so.

Absolutely coming back to this place, great food, loved the service and the live music, wonderful atmosphere. Noise level is where it is in the review because we were seated right next to the piano, it's not at all intended to be a negative mark

It was my wife's birthday dinner, outstanding service, food was great. To top that off a military discount was provided. Our party size was six and three of us are retired U.S Navy. We just moved back to Las Vegas and Bootlegger's will always be on our short list for dinner.

Was a very interesting experience. I don’t believe Roger was having a good evening, because we experienced it. On our way out we heard another table talking about the same thing. I find it very interesting, that when I asked him to take a picture of us Roger refused. But he had no problem charging us $25 and keeping his hands all over our bottle of wine that we brought. Just saying. Love the food love the restaurant will be back.

Went there with friends for great Italian meal our last night in Vegas. This place did not disappoint! My husband got the pork marsala and said it was the best he has ever ate and it was worth the wait. Wait staff were great. We enjoyed the entertainment too.

Fist time there and wasn't sure what expect. We were pleasantly surprised!
The chef was very accommodating for specific dietary requests. The food was very good and the portions large -the only slight negative was that the Spinach Fettuccini needed a bit more flavor.
The highlight is George - who sings and plays the piano magnificently. We will be back!

My 18 year old daughter and I made reservations after my 20 year old son said it was a must. So happy we did. Beautiful atmosphere and delicious food. To top it off we had an amazing singer/piano player the entire time. I cant wIt to come back and take the rest of my family.

If you're a true foodie, you may be disappointed. The fried calamari appetizer and a $55 dollar bottle of Italian wine (Villa Antinori/ Toscana 2017) outshined everything else. The nostalgia, service, and live piano can't be missed. My mother would enjoy the restaurant.

The Food and service are all ways outstanding, the only issue we had this past Saturday is the Piano player was too loud for dinner music, he was very good, but one should not have to raise one's voice to be heard, we were seated at 6:15 it was way to loud the entire time other then when he took a break.
