We went for restaurant week, the food was excellent but the menu on The Palazzo website for restaurant week did not reflect the menu in the restaurant when we went. Kinda disappointing.

This is my favorite go to in Vegas. Always outstanding food and service. Love the music and vibe of the restaurant. We made reservations but the table was not ready so we had to wait quite a while so the manager had appetizers brought to us right as soon as we sat at our table. Such great service and we truly appreciated it. I brought my co workers here and now they are fans. 😊Lavo never fails!

On a Thursday night the restaurant was very crowded. So loud I had trouble hearing my companion. Unfortunately service was chaotic, waiter difficult to track down. All the food was over cooked—disapppointing for lobster. The bar sofas and area looked fun so I’d come here again for drinks but not for the food.

I've been to LAVO NYC but first time in LAVO Vegas. Wanted the rest of my family, who have never been to LAVO to try the restaurant. We were in Vegas for vacation. Everyone was very happy with their meals. We all enjoyed it very much!! Shared the meatball appetizer. Yum!! And ended the meal with my favorite 20-layer chocolate peanut butter cake. Great ending to a wonderful dinner! Service was great...he was adequately attentive, helpful and very nice.

First off, the hostess at the door was great. Very friendly and helpful. The place was gorgeous inside and out and the atmosphere was wonderful. The food was great. I'm not a easy person to please when it comes to food. I wanted pasta that was saucy which the waiter recommended for us. I can't remember the dish but it was an excellent choice. My friend and I sat outside which was the perfect way to enjoy the view of the strip. The only thing that kept me from giving a 5 star is the fact that the waiter took a long time to check if we needed anything, which we did and the check. For a second we thought he forgot about us. Other than that, it was a great experience and can't wait to come back.

We came here for our last night in Vegas & enjoyed the spaghetti and meatballs. However, the dish was rather salty. The Cesar salad was really good & started with a complimentary olive, cheese platter that was a nice treat. The ambiance was beautiful.

LOVED this restaurant! I definitely recommend sitting outside in their outdoor seating area, but the inside is gorgeous as well! They have a fantastic cocktail and wine list. I recommend the shrimp/scallop linguine.

This was our third time at Lavo. The first two were very good. Unfortunately this time was much different. The table we were given was in an extremely high traffic area for the kitchen that should not even be a table. The service was horrible. Silverware was thrown onto the table and the bus boys were missing in action. We felt very rushed. They give you a tiny loaf of garlic bread for 4 people. We asked for more and they charged us $6.00 for it. That is ludicrous considering the prices and this alone will keep me away next time. Had to ask for cheese on our spaghetti and had to ask for a spoon for pasta. These are two things an Italian restaurant should know. There are many choices in Vegas especially at this price point. I would look elsewhere.

Wonderful atmosphere with great background music. This being a first class restaurant, I thought it was a little tacky have a paper cover over the table cloths, which the waiter did not keep clean off for us. The waiter referred to my wife and myself as ( You Guys ), that is one of my pet peeves that I don't care for. With that being said it is very enjoyable restaurant that I would go back to.

I came here for my birthday dinner with my boyfriend. We were seated promptly for my reservation. I enjoyed the complimentary garlic bread. We order the clams oreganata which tasted like straight butter. I order the filet mignon with a side of garlic mashed potatoes. The steak was amazing but the potatoes were cold, dry and lumpy. My boyfriend ordered the penne vodka and said it was under cooked and the pieces of meat where very small. Because it was my birthday they gave us a complimentary tiramisu which was very good and very nice of them but I would have liked to look at the dessert menu. I am sure there are many other options on the strip that may have better quality food.

First time dining at Lavo and would definitely visit again. It doesn't have the classic look of an Italian restaurant but the food was very good. I had the Calamari appetizer which was very good. The calamari were tender and not overly breaded, no tentacles. Ordered the veal parmigiana which was good, but also huge. I think one could easily feed two people. The veal was very tender and not drowned in sauce, though I could have used a little more sauce. Overall I would definitely dine there again just to explore more of the menu.
They also have a nice bar area with plenty of seating, I think there were maybe 4 or 5 TV's. Cocktails were very good.

The meatball appetizer was good, but that was the end of our praise. The quality of food was average (think Olive Garden) at extreme prices. Skip this restaurant while on The Strip!

Celebrated my boyfriend’s birthday here and the food was amazing from our appetizer to our entrees. I must say their fried calamari was the best I ever had. Got the baked salmon and it was so delicious it was cooked perfectly and the sauce was amazing. My boyfriend got the gnocchi truffle and it was really good as well it had an array of different flavors to it. The only thing that was missing was they didn’t give a birthday dessert to my boyfriend when I did mention to the hostess that it was his birthday, so I expected that the message would be sent across. But it’s okay all in all we would definitely come here again.

Nice surroundings, food was very good. One of the best restaurants we are in during our trip. A little more expensive but i enjoyed the experience. I had the meatballs and spaghetti which was one of the best i have had. The ricotta added a level of flavor to the meatballs. Their sauce was excellent. We had the calamari which were cooked perfectly, and again the sauce was wonderful. My wife had the rigatoni which was only ok.
