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.

This Il Fornaio is inside NYNY, but it has what it calls an outside seating, which we always choose. It's fun to watch the people and the gaming floor. Service was quick. The wine list was good. Their bread is the best anywhere. Their house salad is very good. I always order lasagna even though it's not on the menu. Piping hot and delicious.

This is absolutely the closes to real Italian that I have had in the US! We loved everything from the fresh bread, bruschetta, caprese, meatballs, and spaghetti dinner... the taste was amazing, the quality of the food outstanding!
Hats off to the chef!!!

Pretty high priced for pretty average food. Nothing very interesting on the menu. The butternut squash pasta sounded good but was awful. A number of traditional Italian dishes, lasagna for example, were noticeably absent from the menu. Convenient to the arena is its best attribute.

My wife and I enjoyed our meal and the service was excellent. We were disappointed,however,that we had to pay $7.95 extra to substitute pasta for the potatoes which came with our entrees.

We both ordered the 3-course menu and enjoyed our food very much. When the server took our drink order, I learned Pepsi products (yuck!) were served and ended up not ordering a soft drink. There is absolutely nowhere on the menu that lists non-alcoholic drinks or prices. I asked if they were able to make an Arnold Palmer, and the server told me they could. My fiancée and I both ordered Arnold Palmers and thought nothing of it. Fast forward to receiving the bill: $15.80 for 4 Arnold Palmers!!!!! When the server asked us if we would like a refill during our meal, she never mentioned they were not complimentary. Had I known I would be charged an additional $3.95, I would have stuck with water. I find that to be absurd and a real money grab to charge customers per drink for ice tea + lemonade. At the very least, the server should have informed us before offering a refill that we would be charged for it. When I questioned the charge after receiving the bill, the server told us soda was free refills but not Arnold Palmers.

Although the food was enjoyable, I will never return to this restaurant when I am in Las Vegas due to our unpleasant experience with the drinks.

I have gone to this restaurant many times over the years that I have gone to Las Vegas. This visit was pretty disappointing based on my past visits. The menu has changed significantly and was nothing spectacular and certainly was not worth the price I paid. Good points were the wait staff was very good and they accommodated my girl friends sister who is disabled. Oh and the Chianti was excellent. There are better Italian restaurants in Vegas now. That was not the case in the past. I hope they can recapture their past excellence.

Not impressed. It's hard to mess up Italian, but this was not very good at all. I had the CONCHIGLIE AL POLLO and it was very bland, hardly any chicken or sun-dried tomatoes. My partner had the SPAGHETTI CON POLPETTINE, it was flavorful all right, but mostly because it was extremely salty!! We had a flatbread appetizer and each ate one section of it, also just very plain.
And then the bill arrived - for the quality of this food it was extremely expensive. We had eaten at another NYNY restaurant the night before which was worth the money, this one is not.

Food was standard Italian. Very disappointed in the oysters, they were a joke. I wouldn’t return, but it would be perfect for someone inebriated in the casino who wanted a meal a few steps below a steakhouse but better than fast food.

The food was good but rushed, they were beyond understaffed and you would go at times 10-15 min before you could find a server for help. It was frustrating cause salads came and less than 5 min later the food was there. My steak was cooked correctly but the lack of service was a big turn off and spending 60 per person you would expect a better level of it.
