Italian

Step inside Il Fornaio and take a culinary journey through Italy. Early mornings bring rustic, crisp crusted bread hot from the oven accompanied by the scent of fresh brewed espresso. During lunch and dinner hours, pastas and flavorful sauces simmer while meats and vegetables roast over hot coals. Bottles of wine from small, regional wineries are uncorked to complement the dishes, which have been crafted in the custom of Italy's chefs, bakers and homemakers.

Food was good, but we specifically selected this restaurant because someone in our party has a gluten allergy and their menu specified gluten-free pasta. When we placed our order we were told they don’t have gluten free pasta today- the only alternative was the extremely expensive steak dinners. Our friend’s dinner went from $21 to $46, no apology, no attempt at asking the chef for an altered recipe that was less expensive. We told the server we specifically chose this location because of the gluten free pasta options and she literally stared back at us- no reply. It was frustrating that there was no attempt at a resolution for an allergy that they claim they can accommodate for on their menu. That irritation aside, the food was good, service was extremely slow, restaurant was smoky because it’s right in the casino.

We were disappointed with this restaurant. The salads started out really good but it went downhill quickly. We waited forever for our entrees and when they finally arrived they were overcooked. The cheese on my lasagna was burnt and my wife’s gnocchi was overbaked. At least, my wife enjoyed her dessert.

We made a reservation for breakfast. They gave us a small table for 2 people while a lot of couples just walked in and got much better tables for 4 people. It‘s absolutely not understandable why you get the worst table with a reservation!
We ordered hot teas. The server said there were no tea cans and brought hot water in a glass and poured in our cups. Well, she tried so but she poured half the hot water over the table. Some minutes later other people on the next table got tea cans....

Excellent service and quite a variety of great food options. Moderately priced. Ask for an interior table if you want it quieter.

The overall experience of the wait staff, food quality, friendliness and decor made for a great time. Sat so we could watch the passerby’s in the Casino. The waiter had a great knowledge of the menu and that made it easy then to order. Even if I don’t in the future stay at New York, New York, would definitely consider dining here again

My wife and I made reservations at ll Fornaio in Las Vegas at the New York New York. Seated promptly. Food was served quickly as well but we were not rushed. Food was fantastic. Would recommend this restaurant if you are looking to eat inside the casino/hotel.

Food quality not to the level of authentic Italian or equivalent to the price when compared to other local Italian restaurants. Sauce was adequate but bland. Pasta less than al dente, barely cooked. Very small shrimp (comparable to medium size shrimp). Garlic over cooked and almost tasted burnt. Skip and try other options if dining in the Venetian.

We had a nice time. However, I could feel from the staff as a whole the three of us were just another group of tourists. There are some restaurant’ s on the Strip that actually enjoy our patronage. My meaning with this note is to just remind this establishment to not forget that tourists or out of townners built Vegas as we know it. I have spent years in Italy and the food here was a shadow of that experience. Your bottled wine is a bit expensive for what it is. Closing note, our server was very professional. Thanks for having us at your place.

Although the food was pretty good, we were disappointed in the service. There were tables of dirty dishes all around us, with what looked like, only one person cleaning tables. There were stacks of dirty plates piled on what looked like the water stand (near several tables of diners) where servers regularly walked past without a thought. In the food service business, even if it isn't "your job", you clean out the dirty dishes from around the customers! They were not busy, and as a matter of fact the restaurant was easy to get into on a Friday night, when we couldn't make reservations anywhere we actually wanted to go. Lazy, unprofessional, lack of management. I would not go back, nor would I recommend it.

Perfect spot for dining before/after an event at T-Mobile arena. Prompt service from the server as well as the kitchen. Recommend you make reservations as there’s always a line. Food was very good. We had calamari and bruschetta for appetizers and grilled Branzino for entrees. The bread for the bruschetta was overly toasted but still tasty. Calamari was lightly breaded and not over seasoned, and tender. It was a quick walk from there to our event at T-Mobile. It was a bit loud. But would go again for sure.

Great service and great food. They have a three-course menu for $46 well worth it. Food was excellent. Sit inside if you want a little bit quieter from the casino noise. Can dress casually.
Love the flat bread appetizer

Food was great! Service was great! It was a bit loud and of course some hints of smoke from the casino. It was also pretty dark in the inner dining room. I, and a lot of others, had to use our phone light to read the menu.

I'm rarely disappointed with restaurants and unfortunately this was one of those times. Service wasn't very welcoming and food was out within 5 minutes which made it seem premade. Paying almost $30 for a meal I would expect it to be made to order.

Food was pretty good and the service attentive, but the cigarette smoke from the casino spoiled it. Even inside the restaurant the smell of smoke permeates everything.
