This was a perfect dining experience for our anniversary dinner. Nice and elegant. The staff were very accommodating and presented our dessert with a special anniversary signage. Definitely recommend the rack of lamb.

Went out for my birthday dinner. Got there a little early, had just planned to hang for a bit if they couldn’t get us in early. They seated us right away, out on the patio, strip side. Great atmosphere out there. When we got seated, a woman came bu and asked us if we wanted tap, bottled or sparkling water. Replied two was fine, and a guy came and filled out waters right away. Turned out he was our server, Christian. Was great to see him helping out filling waters. We ordered the garlic bread app. Heads up, it’s a whole baguette. Came with melted ricotta, marinara, and what ended up being my favorite, pesto dipping sauces. Two of us couldn’t finish it. I took the last 8 or so slices and took them when we left. My wife ordered the chicken parm and a side of spaghetti with Alfredo sauce. I ordered a “crispy chicken” dish. I was expecting a fried chicken type thing, but it ended up being pan seared and not that crispy. It was fine, I ate it, along with most of the wife’s spaghetti. She could only eat about a fourth of her chicken parm, as it was huge, and we ate damn near a whole loaf of bread. Christian recommenced that we not get too full because he had a special dessert for my birthday. When I finally threw in the towel, he brought out some deep fried oreos, which may be the best thing I’ve ever eaten. Super soft, and tasty. Christian made the whole experience, super personable, and took great care of us. I’m fact, we’re going to recommend that a friend eat here when they come to Vegas next month, and see if they can get seated in his section.

We really enjoyed the Sunday bottomless brunch. The drinks were a little weak but that’s ok because they bring out so many of them! Food was so delish! Great price point for all you can eat! Very pleased. We sat on the patio and it was so relaxing! Our sever was great too! Very accommodating and didn’t rush us. We will return!

They had to remake a steak 3 times because they couldn’t get it right the first time. It’s not that hard to cook a medium steak. Also, they gypped my mom on her birthday and did not put scallops in her seafood. They thought they could sneak in calamari instead. Nope. Never eating there again.

The ambience of the restaurant is great. As soon as you walk in you feel comfortable.
The wait staff is knowledgeable and more than willing to give the diners a pleasurable experience. The food is exceptional. The seafood is fantastic. If you have a taste for a pasta dinner you will not be disappointed. TRY THE MEATBALL APPETIZER.

I had eaten at Lavo for dinner years ago, hence why I thought the Sunday brunch would be fabulous. Sadly, it was not. Due to Covid, which is not the restaurant’s fault, we had to place our buffet order with our server. We purposely gave our order to our server right away to ensure the kitchen received our food order all at once. We were seated 2nd at 10am, upon opening. The restaurant was not busy as they had just opened. My husband ordered a standard breakfast, eggs, potatoes, bacon, and toast. I ordered eggs Benedict from the kitchen, meatball, and 2 breakfast pizza slices, one for me, one for my husband. My husband received a plate with potatoes and bacon. Then 20 minutes later, a plate with just eggs. He asked about his toast. Server said he would check on it. 20 minutes later he finally received toast to eat with his cold eggs. This was after asking for it again. I received my eggs Benedict fairly quickly, had to ask for the slices of breakfast pizza, which we only received one. I had about a drop of hollandaise sauce on my eggs Benedict, to which I waited 15 minutes to receive a tablespoon more. Never received the meatball, but was charged for it and asked to have it removed from the bill as we had never received it. At $50 apiece for brunch, we left feeling unsatisfied and feeling like fools for paying for so much for a cold and broken up meal. Totally disappointed and we were looking so forward it. Just a suggestion, perhaps assigning staff to dish up the buffet items. They had the whole buffet set up, but we couldn’t go get our own, which is understandable, but why set up the buffet then? Have staff stationed at each buffet section. Who eats breakfast in 20 minute intervals? Breakfast potatoes, then eggs, then toast each 20 minutes apart. Awful experience! Please fix this process!

It was very delicious. I had the chicken carbonara and also ordered the garlic bread for appetizer. Everything was very good. It was tasty and hot. My only complaint was that it took 15 after we were sat at the table for a server to come over. We almost left but I am glad we didn’t because the food was delicious.

Lavo was phenomenal! Delicious, authentic Italian cuisine. I had the spaghetti & meatballs and I can honestly say its the best spaghetti I've ever had. My husband had lobster tail and Brussels sprouts & was very happy as well. Cocktails were fantastic also. We will definitely be back.

Sat in the patio. Loved the meatball. Had the special pasta and it was wonderful! Light and not too much truffle oil. My wife had the Branzino and it’s her favorite fish on the Strip. Highly recommend anyone visiting Vegas to make the trip to LAVO!

I was really excited to eat at this restaurant and looked forward to it for my vacation. Unfortunately, for the price, the food was very subpar. I’m a huge fan of Italian and typically not very picky, but this was not worth the cost. So disappointing! The ambiance was beautiful, but the quality of the meal took away from it all. I hate that I can’t recommend this place :-(
