Pre/post Theatre

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 excellent, drinks were very good, service was very good, availability is always a plus when going to or coming from Vegas Golden Knight games. Good convenient location and they always seem to have good seating. We've been there numerous times and will continue to return.

Server was not engaging he didn't even ask if we wanted before dinner drinks and just seemed totally disinterested.

As soon as we were seated, we were brought water and the waiter provided oil and bread. He took our drink order and they were promptly served to us. The menu was great with many choices. our meal was promptly served to us, piping hot. After we ate we were offered the dessert menu. after that the check was presented to us, and the price was very reasonable. I would definitely recommend this restaurant to anyone.

Il Fornaio gets better each time - the service is outstanding as is the value. As it's very open and right in the mix of things, it does get a little loud sometime, but if you sit in the back it's quite fine. The Oso Bucco, pasta and steaks are excellent btw.

Food & service were superb. Noise level very high due to casino. Calamari was probably the best I have ever had. Great food but somewhat pricey.

Pleasant upscale Italian dining in the New York New York casino. The grilled seafood appetizer was done to perfection. My wife had the house made tortellini which again was perfect. I had the grilled pepperocini chicken which was nicely seasoned with a bit of peppery heat. The tiramisu was heavenly. Our waiter was friendly, personable, and attentive. All in all an enjoyable experience.

They sat us in the middle of entrance. It seems like an “add on table”, very busy traffic flow. I felt like we were blocking servers lol

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.

Of our group of 4, at least 2 of the meals (veal Marsala and a chicken dish) were either dry or not very flavorful. My starter - carpaccio - was excellent and capellini was fine. So overall a mixed review on the food. Service was excellent and the wine we had - amarone - was outstanding.

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....

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.
