B&B Ristorante Ratings and Reviews
In Las Vegas it can be hard to find both great food and good service, that's not in an overwhelming noisy environment . This is it! It was a Saturday night and we were able to get last minute reservations, which can be a bad sign, but everything was great! It's located near the Canal Shoppes in the Venetian, and just enough out of the fray that you get the combination of quite, convenient, last-minute availability, and a great dining experience. Highly recommend!
First, do not leave without trying the grilled octopus. It is the best octopus I have had. We also had the pasta tasting menu, which was excellent but very filling. Make sure you are hungry for this. It is incredibly satisfying. I also recommend the bacon old fashioned.
We did not initially plan to eat here. We ended up here after having a fabulous lunch at Bastianich and Batali's OTTO Enoteca e Pizzera. We knew that we just had to try B &B Ristorante. Upon being seated we were brought a complimentary chic pea crostini which was really tasty. For the appetizer we ordered the calamari. It was the best calamari I've had outside of Italy. It was a bit on the spicy side which is perfect for me but if spicy isn't your thing you might ask if the chef would be willing to accommodate. Next we split an order of Bavette Cacio e Pepe (cheese and pepper pasta). This humble Italian staple is so simple yet out of this world delicious. We've not been able to find a decent version of this dish outside of Italy until we dined here. Don't judge this dish by it's less than impressive appearance. It is a must try!!! For the main course I ordered the rabbit which was stunning but oh boy... the braised short rib which my wife ordered was the absolute best thing to hit my taste buds during our entire stay in Las Vegas. I had the Chiati which was recommended by our server and my wife had a cocktail. Both were spectacular. Service was wonderful. Our waiter was knowledgeable and attentive. I have one complaint and one only.... it's that we were too full for dessert. This was without question the best meal of our stay!!!!! Without question!!!!! It is expensive but it is fine dining. If you're looking for a cheap meal this is not your place. If you're willing to pay for excellent food and service in the fine dining category I highly recommend B & B Ristorante. We would definitely return.
Where to begin. Must admit I’m a long time fan, a must visit every LV trip. The staff are more than welcoming and attentive. The scene is comfortable and accommodating and warm. Started w favorites, best grilled octopus, tender, citrus splash, black spaghetti, pasta well prepared, spicy, delicious, veal chop, perfecto grilled, choice cut, beef cheek ravioli, tender pillows of savory beef flavor in gorgeous pasta, then tried new the truffle topped lamp, best prepared lamb I’ve ever eaten and finally chestnut ravioli topped w white truffle. This was the best experience I’ve had there....again.
We were going to a show at the Pallazzo in Las Vegas and my son suggested trying this non traditional Italian restaurant. Wow were we ever surprised at the menu, the wine list, and the service all in a good way. We highly recommend B & B as we will make sure to visit it again on our next trip to Vegas. Everything is homemade and first class.
Enjoyed every aspect of this meal. Food was phenomenal, server & sommelier were out of this world, and we found some beautiful Italian wines that are pretty much unavailable anywhere else in the states. Highest praises for chef and his fantastic sous chef. My date and I were still talking about the meal two days later- memorable in the most positive way.
Had an early dinner prior to seeing a show. A fun mix of apps and a pasta that we shared. Octopus, lamb, rabbit and squid ink pasta. Enjoyed all of it and cane back later for dessert of cannoli (good) and biscotti (nothing memorable and tiny slices). Our second visit and would return to try some other dishes
The food was delicious. They had a pasta tasting menu that you could also order single items from. I tried the goat cheese ravioli which was wonderful. Service was also very good. As a single woman dining alone I didn't feel like I was ignored or received slower service because I was by myself which happens a lot. I've been here before and was happy that the food and service was as good as the previous visit.
One of the top three dining experiences I have ever had! An amazing little place with an amazing staff and even more amazing food! An absolute pleasure from beginning to end. The staff was on top of it all! They knew and expressed knowledge in all aspects of their menu and described, in detail, the preparation of each dish...to include where each plate originated from in Italy. Truly an incredible experience!
Really great meal, very engaged and knowledgeable service. Food was fantastic, and would recommend the pasta tasting menu and wine flight. Only negative was on physical comfort: Restaurant was a kinda hot, and we were seated close to other tables when well spaced tables were available all evening (it gave for Amazingly hilarious eavesdropping though).
This is our second time to B&B and like others have posted its pricey to start, but as they say you get what you pay for. We started with the grilled octopus, very tender and nicely flavored, we then had the pasta course, small ravioli with a chestnut and soft cheese filling with a butter sauce, very flavorful taste of the fall. We split the Rib-eye for two. The balsamic glaze is amazing and the steak was done perfectly. The Chef added some white truffles to the fingerling potatoes, which was also yum. We finished with the house Lemon Cello and some pumpkin gelato. The service, warm bread, dipping oils, vinegar and wine were all excellent.
I cannot recommend this restaurant enough! I had the finest service I have ever received at any restaurant in the world. The staff are amazing and made us feel very special and catered for our every need. The food was amazing and it was an all round fantastic experience dining here.
I was expecting Babbo NYC and unfortunatly did not get it. Good not great. Small portions, pasta was OK, Steak ordered med rare came med well and over cooked, $55 Veal chop had good flavor, but significant amount of fat leaving just a few bites of meat, over priced for what you get, final bill was $550 for two, nothing unique enough to justify going again. Had to ask the Waitress to slow down, they rushed us, she sold the specials and describe the dishes like a robot, which felt scripted and inauthentic. Wine Som deserves credit. He was very good and steered us to a nice bottle off the menu. There is better Italian to be found at far lower prices
I go here every year at least once and I look forward to it. The service is great and the food superb. I like the all-Italian wine list and I am not a big Italian wine drinker. Had the Octopus and pasta with Lobster. It was great. Thanks to BnB and I will look forward to my next visit.
It's good, just not as good as you would think with the names on the restaurant. Some dishes were gorgeous (the "pyramids" pasta in particular). Others fell extremely flat, like a beef cheek ravioli with black truffle shavings so dry they had the texture of wood chips. In all, it's good, but it clearly rests on its laurels far too much.
