Italian
La Strega is Las Vegas’ premiere Italian eatery nestled in the affluent community of Summerlin where Executive Chef Partner Gina Marinelli ignites an authentic Italian cultural rejuvenation by inspiring exploration of the traditions of flavorful, fresh and innovative Italian cuisine with her modern, farm-to-table regionally-based dishes.

Translating to “witch” in Italian, La Strega’s sophisticated yet playful atmosphere bewitchingly transports guests to Italy the moment they step in the door. Greens, clays, and earth tones make up its color palette, while full moon-shaped bulbs on brass chandeliers illuminate the space. The restaurant’s artistic centerpiece is a one‐of‐a‐kind mural that spans multiple walls throughout the restaurant, telling the story of the witches of Benevento which inspired the genesis of La Strega, a tale best told by the head strega herself, Chef Gina Marinelli.

We love La Strega. I have ordered the wild boar bolognese about 4 times and it has always been so very good, but yesterday it was over salted?! Strange... our server was excellent and that has always been the case.

Second time here, place was packed and loud! They were running late but came and spoke with us to let us know what was happening and bought us a drink.

Great food and service

Had the most amazing anniversary dinner at La Strega. From the time we sat down until the evenings end the service was impeccable. From he Spanish Octopus appetizer to the Panna Cotta dessert everything was delicious. The best homemade pasta that i've ever had. Thank you, Derek, Jason and the rest of the staff for an amazing experience.

I love the space, the chef and the overall concept.
They have made some menu additions and changes since my last visit and they are worth a try.
The service is solid, but they need to tighten it up just a bit.
The noise in the restaurant is a real concern..it is difficult to hold a conversation because it is loud...they have tried to add some baffling to muffle the noise, bu they may need to bite the bullet and add some carpet.
I will be back!

While La Strega has taken steps to cut the noise level (it has improved) but it still needs more attention. Everything else is excellent!

Great new place in Summerlin. Food and service are excellent. The main room is lively, entergetic and loud. If you would like a less loud table, ask for a table in the front room (patio). The pastas are all fresh and delicious. I had the pannini for brunch and it was amazing.

We have been there a number of times, trying different dishes and at times re-ordering some of our favorites. The food is outstanding and the service is friendly and attentive. This place outperforms the many Italian restaurants on the strip, including those with famous chefs.

This was my second time here and it does not disappoint. We made a reservation but winded up sitting at the bar. The cocktails are delicious as well as a affordable. Rahim at the bar is great. If you don't see anything you're in the mood for on the cocktail menu let Rahim do his magic, you will not be disappointed. The food is outstanding! Some of my faves are the Farroto, The Braised Pork and the Stracci and to drink the Abigail. If the place wasn't so beautiful and the service was meh I'd still come back for the Braised Pork and the Stracci. Those are two dishes I can't stop thinking about. Luckily the place hits a home run on all levels! The place is beautiful, the staff is friendly and efficient, the food and drinks are on point and it's nice that it's in a small strip shopping center and it's not a pain in the butt to get it in and out of. I can't wait to go back again and try some more new things and bring some friends and family with me so they can experience it too.

The Strega was a great dining experience. The Decour is lovely the wait staff is friendly. We had a drink in the bar while we waited for our party to arrive and then were escorted to a table where the service was excellent. The food around the table was well prepared and delicious. My only suggestion is to find a way to lower the noise level. Room was full so it was difficult for us to have a conversation around the table .

The margarita pizza could have used more basil, but the tomato sauce was fresh and not hidden by too many spices.
Service was outstanding!

What a beautiful restaurant! And the food & service were outstanding!! We dined there early on a Sunday evening. Jason was our server (could not have asked for a more friendly and efficient server!). Absolutely everything we ordered was delicious. Grilled sardines (special of the day) Burratini Pugliese (omg the flavor was amazing), Stracci (braised beef cheeks pasta), Bucatini Genovese (pesto pasta to die for!). Soooo, going back for Sunday Brunch this weekend! Congratulations on bringing a wonderful restaurant to the neighborhood!

Extremely loud due to a party of 6 women having some sort of celebration in the front dining room. They should have been in a private room.

We have had yet another amazing experience at La Strega. In addition to the very tasty spicy pig pizza and the rigatoni bolognese, we also tried their pasta al frutti di mare. It was incredible, and I have had frutti di mare pastas at many different Italian restaurants.

Food and service was good but the noise level was much to loud . Was difficult to hear conversation with your table. They need to do something to soften the noise. Would go again but after solve the noise issue

The service was exceptional from the moment we walked in. Every step was fluid and we enjoyed the server, the service overall and our food. The hamachi was good but I would choose something else they do better. The beef tartar was one. We had the pastas, very delicious, but really want to return because there is so much more on the menu that sounded and looked delicious. We observed tables around us also enjoying their meals. This is the type of place to return over and over and enjoy it every time. The food is priced very well, so it is another reason to be able to return often. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND La Strega!!!

First time here and we will be back. Ambiance is very cute and cozy. Service was very attentive. My husband had anchovy toast, hamachi and boar Bolognase and raves about all of them. I had the chicken millanase, which was delicious. Highly recommend, a neighborhood gem
