Server checked in to see how we were doing/food was tasting more than halfway through our meal. The same server failed to pack our food to-go and return with our check. Two separate servers fulfilled these tasks.

My husband and I had dinner at LAVO , and for sure, it was a good choice . We had The meatball as appetizer and it was fantastic. Very moist and delicious. As entree , my husband had the spaghetti and meatballs and I had the cavatelli bolognese . Both dishes were delicious. The service was courteous and dedicated. The ambiance is very beautiful . If you want to have a special time and a well prepared dish , LAVO is the place to go!

Calamari was underdone and not crispy, our waitress wasn’t the friendliest, spaghetti was expensive and barely had any sauce or flavor. Mine was good (pasta alla vodka) but overall I wouldn’t go back.

This is one of the more remarkable restaurants in Las Vegas. It has a menu that ranges from simple spaghetti (which one member of my party ordered and LOVED) to roasted Chilean sea bass (which one member of my party ordered and LOVED) to incredible steak choices. There is something on the menu for everyone. Waiter was very attentive to the table, ambiance was awesome, and the overall atmosphere was first rate. And to top it off, this was my cheapest of the three dinner bills, and the first of the three restaurants I would choose to go back to. What is the saying? THIS IS HOW WE VEGAS!

I ordered the Filet and it was cooked to the perfect temperature. I added on the Black truffle butter and it was amazing. The salad and sides were big enough for 2 people to share. While the server was nice, I could tell he was stretched a little thin over tables. But overall a nice place to have dinner.

Lavo's restaurant is a great palace for a special occasion or a nice meal. The food, service and location is outstanding, however Covid has had taking it's toll even here. The menu is much smaller with no Veal dishes at all, hard to imagine an Italian restaurant without vealparm but it's still worth the trip

Delicious food & gorgeous restaurant. Spaghetti & meatballs were excellent! Our only complaint was we felt like we were being rushed so they could seat other parties.

Julio was our server and outstanding service. Great recommendations and steady champagne and flow of food.
Not overcrowded and well managed. Oysters, king crab cocktail and Mac and cheese were favorites.

Thank you Julio

I enjoy the Sunday brunch at LAVO. I understand the need to downgrade the brunch in order to keep the price point.

I would pay more to have the old brunch offerings restored. It was a unique and fun experience- stood out. The new brunch is not that compelling.

I had brunch with a few friends at Lavo and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Our server, Babs, was exceptional. The food was outstanding and we all left "Fat & Happy," as they say. You can order as much as you want with the endless brunch and we ate and drank most of the day away. The atmosphere is lively and the food was delicious.

We expected a bit more, frankly, but Vegas is still figuring out how to deal with COVID-related changes. The service was excellent, and the food was good. We expected a more WOW factor from the food based on what we had seen in the past.

Lavo has a lovely ambiance and appealingf menu items, and their specialty appetizer of garlic bread with dipping sauces lived up to it's reputation - it was delicious. My husband and I shared the beet salad which also was delightful. My husband's entree of spaghetti and meatballs (Smaller versions of the famous appetizer large meatball) was very good.
I wanted a lighter entree and per our server's suggestion I ordered the whole grilled branzino (sea bass), an entree I have enjoyed in many restaurants in many states. I was very disappointed in what I was served. For the price point of this entree, the fish itself was very small and thin, and was prepared by filleting it into 2 halves, with each side, front and back, placed on the grill As a result itf was very dry and leathery. I ate very little of only the thicket portion, the rest was wasted as it was again, leathery and dry. My husband's entree was large, and I did enjoy some of his paghetti and meatballs.
Again, very diappointed in the branzino, and do not recommend ordering it.
