Our sever, Nicki, was amazing and we had a wonderful experience! This was our second night in a row because we were so impressed the first night! The patio dining experience was fabulous and we loved the view, Highly recommend!

The server was great but food portions where not and could have been better such as not enough seafood in the entrée but the big meatball was delicious and good size

Service was lacking and the food was subpar. We ordered truffle fries and find out they ran out of truffle oil after dish was brought to the table. Better communication is needed between servers and kitchen. Place settings were given after appetizers were served, food came room temperature. Would not go back to eat there and spend that much money

Our server was JJ and she did an outstanding job! She put together a menu for the group and did not disappoint. The support staff was equally up to the task of keeping our glasses full and table cleared for the next course!

The only issue was we were too full to do much damage to the desert tray that came out. The peanut butter layer chocolate cake was amazing the two bites I managed to fit in.

Overall, the Lavo experience was excellent.

The greeters/receptionist were a tad on the cold side. Kind of a pretentious feel as you check-in. We actually dined twice and felt this both tims.

The bartender and waiter were superb and made up for the reception.

The food was excellent, here's what we ordered -
Oysters, Caesar, Meatballs, Chilean Sea Bass, 20 layer cake, and Tiramisu

I'd order all of those again except for the 20 layer cake.

Enjoy!

We ate outside on the patio right when they opened. Sun was behind TI already so we were completely in the shade. 103 out and we were comfortable. Food was amazing. Would try anything on the menu and I am sure that I would not be disappointed.

The pasta tasted just like it does in Italy. I've never found that in an American restaurant thus far!

The ambiance was great and everything after that was a bit subpar. For example...

- My fiance and I ordered the Truffle Gnocchi, but the presentation, portion, and taste wasn't anything I personally felt I couldn't make myself (and I'm far from a chef). It came on a plain white plate with absolutely no presentation at all making it look like something served up at Applebees. There were maybe 4 small truffles mixed with the overabundance of Gnocchi. It should have been called Gnocchi salad with a sprinkle of truffles.
It tasted good, but again, not anything I would ever consider ordering again and at $32, it was worth a fraction of the price.

- For dessert, we ordered an Espresso Martini. It wasn't made properly. It had Baileys in it and that was the ONLY thing you could taste. Anyone who is familiar with Espresso Martinis know you mix Khulua and not Baileys. Suffice to say, it was pretty bad at the ripe ol price of $20.

- We also indulged in the 20 Layer Chocolate Cake and OMG, this was to die for. I think it was the only thing that we were really impressed with. It was so large, 4 people could have barely finished it.

- Our waitress was very nice and hospitable.

All in all, the food and signature drinks were pretty bad, but the ambiance and staff were great. It was enough for me to "possibly" give it a 2nd try being that I am a Las Vegas local, but with sooooo many restaurants to choose from here, I'm not entirely sure I would.

The space is gorgeous and our waitress was attentive, knowledgeable and a pleasure. It was a group of 6 and we all ordered something different. The salmon, spaghetti/meatballs and the oyster were very tasty but the other entrees didn't receive rave reviews. Maybe we'll go back again and try something new from the menu

It was a nice evening out on the open air patio. Our server was very attentive to our needs an added to the atmosphere. We had seafood pasta which had a very light cream sauce which was Flavor just enough to not overpower the seafood flavors. We enjoyed the pasta, but highly recommend the meatball appetizer. Perfectly cooked perfectly flavored. A great appetizer for two

The food was amazing our server so upset I can’t remember her name she was so cool and just took care of us the whole night, even hooked me up with some fried Oreos for my birthday thank you!!!!! Chicken Parmesan is so tasty, seafood penne also has a very great flavor and the portions weren’t too extreme.

Super friendly staff! We opted to sit outside on the patio in the 100 degree weather due to Covid, but the staff made sure we stayed well hydrated and made it a pleasant experience. I would come back here just for the friendly atmosphere!

Couldn’t have picked a better place for dinner. Cappuccino was the best I’ve ever had!!! Recommended Lavo to someone we met by the pool and we never suggest restaurants! It was that good!

Entrees like chicken parmesan need less chicken and possibly a side dish. Bolengnase sauce ok but will never beat Buddy V's Sunday gravey which is his bolengnase sauce has more vegetables and cream and parmesan cheese in the sauce

I’ve gone here twice but this last time I just wasn’t impressed at all with the food so probably not coming back. For the amount of money spent there are better Italian places I’m sure.
