I am baffled by the 4 and 5 star reviews. The menu was uninspired, mediocre and no better than a Midwestern chain restaurant. While the server was pleasant and apologetic for the out of stock menu items, she could not overcome the poor food quality and incorrect meal delivered to the table. I was terribly disappointed with entire experience.

Perfect round table for a group of nine. It made for a great experience as we could all interact. It is a very dark restaurant, so bring those flashlights for the menu. Food was simple, but very good.

In this post-covid era, we appreciated being able to enjoy the fantastic food here but on the outdoor terrace! So glad to have this option and our server was excellent! Charred octopus was the bomb and we shared the sea bass and bone in ribeye that they sliced for easier sharing which again was ever so thoughtful! Fabulous as usual all around!!!

Cocktails we’re wonderful. Never received bread until we asked 4 times that came out after oysters, soup was cold, meatball was “ok” nothing to rave about like they say….

Carne Pizza was loaded with meat, great crispy bite!

Alfredo Pasta was good a bit dry more sauce would have made it better but overall flavor was good.

Tiramisu dessert was delicious. Fried Oreos basic. Chocolate gelato was divine!!!!

Service from our waiter was horrible he tried to apologize constantly however it was his fault for not being more attentive to our table like he was others….

This place came highly recommended but we left greatly disappointed. I could not recommend this as a place to eat. Service was very slow, we were stuck in a corner by the bar, and biggest complaint was COLD FOOD. Signature meatball appetizer was good…but not hot despite being plated on a skillet. Drinks were weak and again very slow to arrive.

Fantastic experience. Christina was bubbly efficient and made sure we tried all the amazing dishes. Our party of 8 was over the moon and is still raving about the extraordinary brunch!!! We’d give 10 stars if we could.

Was SUPER excited about the fettuccine tossed in a Parmesan wheel, only to have it come out of the kitchen already prepped. They also talked about a chocolate fountain that it turned out was ticked away on a corner and we didn’t see until leaving. Think they just need to update their menu item descriptions to be a lil more up to date. Still overall good.

Service was horrible. We were not greeted for over 20 mins after sitting down, and once we ordered, everything from beginning to end was wrong upon delivery to the table. The food also came out at vastly different times for different people, and there was no follow up from the server asking if we were doing okay. Very disappointed overall for a an expensive on-strip brunch.

For a little while, love rock ‘n’ roll music was played over the speakers. Making it hard for us to hear ourselves. However shortly there after oldies music started to play at an acceptable level. Because of the beautiful ambience of this restaurant I would suggest some sort of Italian music.

Overcrowded, very loud and non-accommodating for food or drinks….
They only serve what on the menu, no change and no diversion.
Social distancing does not existing. No enforcement for masks for employees (of course neither for guests)
Food is excellent.
They do not serve liquor in proper glasses.
There are way better Italian restaurants for ambience and safety.

Truthfully dinner surpassed expectations by a wide margin in my mind. All that to say it was also not nearly as expensive as similar meals elsewhere on the strip. Will definitely be back.

Ambiance and food were excellent. The big meatball delicious as always. Ordered garlic bread but served focaccia initially. Loved it. Just right for two. The seafood in the chopped Louie salad was ample and fresh. Almost everyone dressed casual elegant.
