Giada - The Cromwell
This charming Las Vegas restaurant welcomes diners with warm colors, comfortable furniture and natural lighting thanks to the restaurant’s huge retractable windows. Guests can eat in the dining room, lounge or at window tables, boasting breathtaking views of the Bellagio fountains and Caesars Palace.
The menu consists of Italian cuisine with refreshing, Californian influences. Menu items include lemon spaghetti, chicken cacciatore, marsala herb chicken meatballs, rosemary focaccia and lemon flatbread and vegetable Bolognese rigatoni. GIADA adds a lighter touch to Italian dishes, all while staying true to classic Italian recipes.
There are family-style options, along with a vegan and gluten-free menu options. Desserts, like the lemon ricotta cookies and sorbets, serve as the perfect ending.
Unfortunately, this restaurant has decreased significantly in quality. Have eaten here 3 times before with great experience however this time the food was mediocre at best. Pasta came out cold. Crab arancini had no crab in it...very disappointing. Won’t come back. Too many good restaurants in the strip. What a disappointment.
Some real hits and some misses. Some staff were good some were meh. Some plates were amazing and one was meh.
Every time I come to LV I make it a point to go to Giada.
I love the food, and it's an overall fun place.
I always bring someone new with me.
It is always a winning place.
Unlike my gambling skills
Terrific food and exceptional service. It was a special evening.
Thanks, Vincenzo and Giada, for an unforgettable dining experience.
Outstanding food! We chose the tasting menu and got the recipes for some of the food selections. Hope I’m successful in cooking them at home.
Fantastic food and great service. I had to reschedule my reservation and they made the process very easy. Enjoyed the music and the ambiance.
As an Italian-French origin and a fan of Giada , i wanted to try her food! I must say it was ok but not really so genuine! First we started with a Bellini drink but unfortunately it was not tasting like a peach drink. For appetizer I ordered the pecorino crostini and it was blend, tasting only ricotta but no pecorino, the waiter actually gave me the opportunity to get something else since I mention the lack of pecorino! Then we had some pasta with lobster which were good but not exceptional. Overall I was a little disappointed with the experience at her restaurant.
Ambiance was beautiful. Food bland. I expected an explosion of flavors but seriously was lacking any. Wont go back.
Was really looking forward to dinner here, but the food was very mediocre (including dessert). Drinks were good.
One of my favorite places to visit when I am in Vegas
Anniversary celebration. Restaurant staff all wished us a happy anniversary as we interacted with them. Went with the four course tasters meal and was not disappointed. Excellent presentation and everything was delicious. Dessert cart was unbelievable. Enjoyed their specialty cocktails. A memorable evening. Highly recommend.
Our second time to Giada and it was all excellent. Great food, great vibe, great wine. The view is wonderful and a great place for a special occasion.
Everything was great until the last 45 minutes when we couldn’t find our server and had nothing including water.
The service was outstanding. From the cocktail waitress in the lounge area of the bar, to our all of our wait staff.
We had Giada’s tasting menu, and thoroughly enjoyed every single course!
And the view of the Las Vegas strip, was the cherry on top!
We had a seating at 9 pm, and our server was intent on rushing us through the meal. Really, you need to turn the table again after a 9 pm seating? There were plenty of tables empty nearby. Perhaps he had a hot date. Nevertheless, when I am paying this much for a meal, I expect to be able to relax and not to be rushed through. The setting is beautiful, the food is wonderful, but a server can ruin things. This happened the last time I was there too, a few years ago.
I reserved a week out for our Anniversary requesting a nice table with a great view...they were not accommodating and the front desk service was terrible...the food was not good and we will not be back.
Fun. Delish. Took a long to get entrees and when we did food was not hot.
Absolutely one of the best meals ever. A flavor and texture experience.
The ambiance was lovely. The food and service were not good. Food was bland and the waiter was quite rude towards the end of our meal. When he brought us the cheque, he didn’t say anything to us. We paid cash and gave him a pretty good tip and he still said nothing at all when he came to get the bill and payment. Would of been nice to have some acknowledgement. Makes me rethink the tip we gave him. He did not deserve it.
I was a solo traveler...the table was a good location with views of the Bellagio Fountains (per my request on Open Table). The lobster hash and toast could have been hotter- temperature wise..the presentation was amazing! The atmosphere is classy yet casual and upscale. I look forward to returning. Service was attentive, polite yet very professional.
The service staff wasn’t great specifically our waitress.
Delicious food, great service. 2 people with apps, entrees, a glass of wine and dessert ran about $200 with tip but that’s Vegas for you. I think their brunch is a better value, but all of Giada’s food is amazing especially dessert!
Phenomenal restaurant with excellent food and even better service!
A real treat. Great Italian food, Giada has some very unique recipes and technique. Great view of the strip, get a window if you can!
My wife and I had dinner there before a show and it was fantastic! The food was great and the wait staff was terrific. We had a condensed timeline due to the show and the team there made it happen all while not making it feel like it was a rush. Fantastic job!
By far the best food and service we experienced in LV. We did the tasting menu and it was amazing. Bartender, waiter and sommelier were all knowledgeable and entertaining.
Table for six with Tuscan ribeye, lobster ravioli, fettuccine, bone-in filet and sea scallops entrees and various appetizers. Every bite was delicious!
Everything from brunch, lunch or dinner is delicious! It’s definitely a Vegas must.
WE HAD HIGH EXPECTATIONS GOING INTO THE RESTAURANT AND WE WERE NOT LET DOWN. MY HUSBAND AND I WERE CELEBRATING OUR ANNIVERSARY. FIRST OFF THE INITIAL RESERVATIONS WERE FOR 2 AND ABOUT MIDDAY I NEEDED TO CHANGE IT TO 4. THEY ADDED 2 WITHOUT ANY HASSLE. THE FOOD WAS WONDERFUL AND THE WAIT STAFF WAS 11+. WE WILL DEFINITELY GO BACK THE NEXT TIME WE ARE IN TOWN
Only that would make it better is the seating for two. If I knew the seating would have been side by side with other couples I would have stayed in Brooklyn.
Amazing approachable Italian food
My brother and I visited. I had the grilled cheese, my brother had the hamburger from the brunch menu. Both were outstanding. Finished the meal with the “Death by Chocolate” brownie. For $5.00, this is one of the best deals on the Vegas strip. Very comfortable restaurant and even though it was crowded, there was no issue having a conversation. Recommend highly!
My second trip, it was just as amazing as the first.
This is my second visit this year to the restaurant and the food did not disappoint. Server was wonderful and our view of the South LV Blvd was a great backdrop too. There were off on reservation time by 15-min. But in the end made up with prompt and frequent service. I’ll be back!
The food was amazing, the staff gave excellent suggestions regarding what pairs with our selections. I will definitely return on our next trip to Las Vegas.
We were underwhelmed with our food and service at Giada. We all had the Tasting Menu. It was way more food than 3 women could consume but the quality was just OK. My steak was undercooked for Medium Rare. The waitress was not what I would call friendly. She did her best at making us NOT feel special and was not attentive. I almost felt as if she was bothered by being there. With all of the wonderful restaurants available to people in Vegas, Giada needs to up their game. I wouldn't return or recommend.
I recently went to Las Vegas for business and last time I was there, I had dinner at Giada’s before departing home. I enjoyed it last time, so I figured…why not do it again! I am a foodie at heart, NY/NJ Italian, and also cook as a hobby (I do cook A LOT of Giada’s dishes).
I, unfortunately, had had a late lunch the day I visited, so I kept it very simple. I wanted something light and at my waiter’s recommendation, went with the Branzino, Crab, Green mussels in a saffron scented Cioppino broth with a nice glass of Chianti. Words cannot describe this dish!! IT WAS AMAZING! The fresh tomatoes, lumps of crab, and perfectly cooked fish in that broth. Simply Mind-blowing! I was going to order the more popular Salmon, but glad I took the waiter’s recommendation. I typically don’t eat all the bread, but did this time around because I didn’t leave a drop in my bowl. DELICIOUS!
For dessert, I again went light (and with my waiter’s recommendation) ordered the Summer Berry and Almond Panna Cotta. Presentation was very nice but tasted even better. I initially thought it was a little “berry” overbearing, but as I dug deeper and spooned into the Panna Cotta….WOW! Dessert just popped. So smooth and creamy.
Overall, I think this was hands down, the best meal I had in Vegas in my 3.5 days there (and I had dinner the night before at Picasso’s). Giada’s warm and cozy restaurant is inviting, and I almost wish I had visited another night so I could have just sat there and enjoyed the ambiance of the restaurant more while sipping some vino. The icing on the cake would have been if I could have met the beautiful chef in person. I might have to make a special weekend trip back just to hit Giada’s again. Highly recommend putting on your list of restaurants to visit. Priced right and a quality meal/experience!
