We had the best brunch here. I forgot the name of our waiter but he was super awesome and nice and funny. Definitely made our morning to a great start. The food was actually good too. Tastes fresh. I can never find any spaghetti that is as good as the ones I had in bora bora but I'd say theirs here, is the closest thing to it. I really liked it. Definitely a good brunch place to go to while in vegas. It's literally right across from the Treasure island casino and hotel. But with the vegas strip street, you have to go to the venetian bridge to cross over than down the venetian hotel out to the strip then make a right and head to palazzo hotel. It's a nice setting restaurant. I look forward to coming back to this restaurant whenever I visit vegas again.

Pizza was more of a flatbread, not pizza.
Hostess was rude, didnt want us to enter since they were closing (my dinner reservation was at 10:45 pm.
We arrived at 10:51 pm, she told us “you have exactly 9 mins to sit and order from the menu”. We did just that.

Best Italian food I have ever eaten. If you go out for one nice meal when in Vegas, go to Lavo. Great service, amazing food & great value. If there was one drawback, I would say it is a little loud at times. The great food and bang for your buck more than makes up for it though.

I went with my friend to LAVO for his birthday and overall it was great - the pasta especially was very good! The service however was pretty horrible :( Our cocktail order got lost, and wasn't delivered until we had our mains for about 10 minutes (30-40 minutes after ordering), an appetizer we didn't order was delivered to our table and we were almost charged for it after being told when it was dropped off that it was "compliments of the house", our waitress gave our take-home portions to the table next to us, and frankly we were rushed through our dinner instead of being able to relax and enjoy the event. There was no mention of the occasion (birthday) at all even though it was listed on the reservation. I don't need free stuff but even a cookie with a candle seems appropriate when you're spending hundreds of dollars on a birthday meal. Again - the MOST important part, the FOOD, was SPECTACULAR!

The Sunday Italian Brunch Buffet was multi bene. The atmosphere is quiet and soft which makes for a nice brunch. The only down side is drinks are not included in the price and there are no refills for soft drinks.

It was really beautiful inside and I loved the bathrooms they were so well decorated
It just was a little expensive for what they were offering and to have a server when you also have a buffet is just odd. I felt like I could’ve walked to the bar and ordered a glass of wine and gone to the buffet. I tipped 20% but I wasn’t sure really what for? The food was good but it was amazing

The server was excellent and she was concerned that we had a nice relaxing dinner and enjoyed the experience. Our dinner was a birthday celebration and a complimentary slice of cake with a candle and a chocolate birthday sign was brought to the table. The portions are large and the food preparation and presentation are excellent. The signature cocktails are very good and you should try the cucumber vodka spin on a mojito that they serve it is a very refreshing drink, and they also serve a great old fashioned with a big rock that is excellent. A must try is their signature meatball appetizer, all I can say is wow...

we were seated at a table in the corner where there is a door behind he curtains. People keeps opening the door even though it was locked. I asked the waitress to help but she said will not happen but it kept on happening! Getting notice from the waitress was so difficult. I keep on asking for salt, wine, this and that but was not attentive at all .... This is my second visit but wasn't like this in my first.

The menu choices are great and the food is delicious, with perfectly cooked pasta. But we waited more than 30 minutes for our table for two, even with a reservation. And rather than offering some sort of comp or just an apology, we were asked several times if we paid for our drinks.

From the moment we walked in our experience was awkward and sub par for a restaurant of this caliber. From being greeted at the door by a man on his cell phone, turning us over to a hostess who then waited for his approval to seat us and then was waived on by him. To not being greeted by a server for over 5 minutes, once greeted we were told they were changing over staff for the evening shift and would be turned over to another server. We quickly ordered drinks and our entrees. After approximately 15 minutes with only water in an empty restaurant, our current waiter looking over all the tables talking to another server, we saw another server bringing beers to a table. She saw our empty waters and quickly apologized and filled them. We told her we had been waiting on drinks for over 15 minutes. She recalled having seen the order put in but didn’t know why we hadn’t received them. She went to grab those and put food came at that point. She continued to check on us and apologize. Our server finally came to check in after having our food served for a few minutes. The young lady who had helped us, Amanda, continued to check in and was very helpful. She saved our experience as we were not pleased at all with the service at every level until that point. Thank you to Amanda for noticing us and taking care of us. The rest of the staff needs work on how to actually attend to customers, even during busy times with a shift change.

From the moment we stepped inside, the service was excellent, we were seated at a table that was comfortable and enough room to give all 7 of us ample room to eat and socialize with each other, every appetizer and plated menu items were served with perfect timing, the food was delicious !! All 7 of our family members were impressed with everything about Lavo! We will be back again on our next visit to Las Vegas!

I visited Lavo Italian Restaurant &Lounge during the Holidays/ New Year . I shared the 16 oz Meatball,garlic mashed potatoes, and the mixed greens salad with my girlfriend. All entrees and appetizers are shareable portions.We both couldnt believe how delicious the food was,everything was Delicioso.
Oh,we ordered desert to go,the Cheesecake with all the fixings. Mmm mmm Good. I would definitely recommend Lavo to all. This place is very clean,with a pleasant and soothing ambience. Great customer service. Its worth the $$$.

I will be eating here on my next trip to Las Vegas.

We were looking forward to a wonderful meal. The service and the ambience were excellent, however the food was definitely lacking. The veal Parmesan ,which was very pricey, was dry, tough and had very little sauce and very little cheese . My husband’s chicken Parmesan was similar. Our wedge salads we’re also less than desirable. The bacon croutons were hard to cut and if you had eaten them whole, someone would’ve had to perform the Heimlich maneuver. Best part of the meal was the tiramisu. Overall, the food was a definite disappointment.

Food was so so for the price. Service was excellent and restaurant was nice. It was a good evening. Chicken parm I had, the chicken was flattened and took up my entire plate for 38 bucks. The chicken had some crunchy parts to it. The pasta that usually goes with chicken parm was 13 bucks more just for a little helping of pasta..
