During CES 2019 on Thursday night, had a client and team dinner here (7 people). My reservation was for 8:45pm, but was not seated until 9:30pm as the restaurant was very crowded and they fell behind.

The food and ambiance were great, the staff was friendly but seemed a little rushed at times. Again, it was very busy so I can understand. I would come back again.

Unbelievably bad service for a high end restaurant. We were seated for over 15 minutes and were ready to order before anyone even brought water, let alone had anyone else come to the table. Had to stop a manager to get service. At that point, Mark, the manager went to great lengths to try to atone for the lapse and his efforts were very appreciated. But then we waited another 20 minutes before we got the bread! At that time I saw Mark look at our table mortified that we didn't have our bread yet. We got it shortly after but then they brought the food out before we had a chance to enjoy the bread and cheese/olives/pickle tray (within 5 minutes). The food was very, very good which helped to make a bad situation better. I just don't understand why we were so invisible before making contact with Mark. Mark did the best job of fixing the situation that I have seen in quite some time. I would give them another try based on his efforts and the quality of their food.

This restaurant has the potential to be very good, unfortunately they packed way too many people into the restaurant. It was way too loud. We both asked for steaks to be prepared medium. Mine came out very overcooked and my friends came out raw.
The manager did come over remake the steak and apologize the second steak was good.

Great money machine and trap for tourists. Service is very bad and they only look to rip you off. Waiters will openly ask for 20% TIPP although they won't neither say goodbye when you are leaving.

We were 5 people, had a dinner at 6:30pm. Although the dinner was $1k+, a waiter found it as appropriate to come at 8pm and tell us that he would need a table for another guests so we should go. He said: "guys I need a favor, I would buy you a drink at the bar, but I need this table". I am generally not very demanding guest, but in such as expensive restaurants I would expect to have a chance to at least finish the vine.

Food was average, nothing to point out. You have 15-20 min to finish starters as waiters are coming one by one to ask you to move it away. So you have to explain to each one of them that you would like to finish it. After some time, you just give up. Bottle of vine is poured immediately to glasses so you can drink it as tea, just to avoid an additional pouring. Everything to free up the table as soon as possible and eventually get one more round of guests over there. I felt humiliating.

There are so many good restaurants in Vegas where you can get better value for money. This one is just not worth it.

The food was very good and delicious. The service was very good as well but they were very crowded the day we went so they needed more people to serve to their tables and the tables are too close to each other.

Very busy during CES so take with a grain of salt. My meal was cold by the time it arrived at the table and never received my side dish. Chicken Marsala is a miss on the menu. pounded thin but flavorless and dry. Requested plain pasta as a side. Did not come. Waitstaff informed me that the kitchen was really far away. Too far to get plain pasta at an Italian restaurant? Did not order second dish of garlic bread, received one anyway and was charged $6. for a very small portion of garlic bread. Server was brand new to Vegas, sweet but overwhelmed with how busy CES was.

I thought a few of items we ordered left a lot to be desired. The Penne Alla Vodka tasted as if there was zero seasoning, very bland. The baked potato was severely undercooked, almost difficult to eat. The calamari was great, however the marinara sauce also tasted very bland. For the price of the total bill $113 plus tax, it was very underwhelming. It’s unfortunate because I was looking forward to this place.

Our first visit to LOVO will not be our last. Embedded in the Palazzo Hotel in Las Vegas, the decor was beautiful and great people watching. As foodies, the dinners were all delicious from homemade pastas to the fresh fish. Prepared and served, the Italian theme threaded the evening from drinks, to appetizers, entrees and desserts. We wanted a fork to taste everything in the kitchen.

Service was attentive but not overbearing. The wait staff was well trained to keep the pace of the meal leisurely.

A gem of a restaurant!

The service was excellent however, the food was 2nd rate. Husband ordered the parmesan and although a hefty portion, it had very little taste. I ordered the lobster bisque and found it to also have minimal taste and was extremly thin. I also ordered the lobster louis and it too was bland. The pinot noir, howver, was excellent.

Visited Lavo on a recent trip to Las Vegas with friends and was able to book a table fairly last minute, despite being very close to New Year's Eve. We had to wait a little while for our food to arrive but it didn't impact our night - great food, great service and a really enjoyable evening.

We really enjoyed our dinner at Lavo. We shared the beet salad and each had pasta entrees, which were delicious. All of the food that we saw being served looked delicious and I'd happily go back to Lavo again. Also, I had to have a gf diet (and I have a few other allergies) and they were very accommodating and they do have gf pasta! The ambiance was really great as well!
