Our last dinner stop while vacationing with friends in Las Vegas. It was a beautiful night and we choose to seat outside. We had a great view of the Vegas strip. The food was outstanding as was the service (thank you Mia)!

I couldn’t hear one thing anyone in my party said. We asked for the music to be turned down, but they were not able to accommodate. Nobody offered to move us to a better spot. I felt very much like people did not care about our experience.

Our reservation was for 8 PM. We got our table at 9 PM. It took over 30 minutes just to get bread and water. And of course this was asking for it three times. When the food finally did show up. The chicken dish was completely over cooked. After complaining to the manager they did take that portion of the bill off. But the whole fun and romantic atmosphere was ruined. And all he wanted to do was run out of there

We have eaten here before, always loved it but this particular night, the meatballs were not really up to the quality as before. Kind of fatty. Service was great, garlic bread has been better before but was still ok, sauce was delicious on the meatballs and noise level is HIGH but you know this when you go. Overall , it’s been better previous visits but everybody has an “off” night.

Our reservation was at 7pm and we arrived 5 minutes early. We didn’t get seated until 7:25. As good as the “meatball” was, and it was spectacular, the half hour wait was a talking point for the rest of the night. We really didn’t get a chance to have coffee and dessert because we had a show to go to at 10pm.
The waitstaff was incredible making sure we had everything we needed and explaining the different app’s and entree’s.

The food was incredible!

Would I recommend this place and would I come again... yes... but I definitely would have to inform them that dinner would be at least 2 hours long for a party of only 3.

Food was overpriced. Server said they are family portions that can easily feed two. We ordered the baled salmon and a tiny piece of salmon came out. What family does that feed? I went without water for quite some time once I ran out. We ordered dessert as well. The wrong dessert came out and it took almost 30 mins to get the correct one out to us. The music in the restaurant is way too loud for the nice atmosphere. I couldn't hear my wife from across the table.

Wonderful experience!! We had a small inconvenience with our table, and the staff more than compensated for the mistake. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone, and I look forward to coming back soon. Food was amazing and the atmosphere was incredible. The occasion was a date weekend for us and dinner here was the cherry on top.

Overall, I would give my experience here as a 3 star, but the excellent service bumped the rating to 4 stars. We arrived a little early for our reservation during the 7pm opening and were offered champagne while we waited. It took a little while for the restaurant to get up and running again and we were led to our booth by camera flashlight. The most noticeable thing was how sticky the floors were. The booth was roomy, but next to the kitchen so we heard a lot of loud noises that interrupted conversations. We had excellent service where our water glasses were always full and the waiter patiently answered all our questions about the menu. Now the main course: the food. There is complimentary garlic bread with marinara sauce, olives, cubes of pecorino, and pickled vegetables. They were nice additions to eat with the softball-sized meatball appetizer. The meatball is definitely a must-try and could be a meal unto itself. The pasta dishes are a reasonable size for one and could be split between two people with smaller appetites. We tried spaghetti and meatballs, sausage bolognese, and penne alla vodka. The dishes were fine and pasta cooked al dente, but not at the level of taste I was expecting for $20+ dishes. Since we celebrated a special occasion, the waiter kindly brought us a tiramisu to share. The tiramisu was excellent and one of the best we ever had. If you enjoy Italian food and don't want to wander too far from the Venetian, LAVO is an impressive place to take a date. Excellent service really helped to make the place better. However, the prices do not seem to match up to the food quality and the environment could be a little quieter.

There is nothing wrong with this restaurant but it's nothing special. The food was decent and the service was a bit slow but not terrible. The view on the patio was great. Unfortunately other restaurants are just offering a better experience for the money. I eat at a lot of great restaurants, this is not one of them. It was basically a dressed up Maggiano's which is not an insult but certainly not a compliment. If you are looking for a special Vegas dinner experience this is not it.

We asked to be seated inside - we were then seated outside. Outside had loud music piped overhead - clearly for the benefit of people on the sidewalk one floor below us. Brought our entree immediately after appetizer. Server apologized and he did a great job. Food average. Wine options average.

What a wonderful experience from beginning to end. Would highly recommend to everyone. We sat at the bar and thoroughly enjoyed our bartender Cynthia who was very attentive and gave great recommendations for a delicious wines. Then we sat at an outdoor table and our meal was delicious and waiter and waitress were very attentive and consistently checked on our to see if we needed anything while always filling our water glasses. This was truly the highlight of our trip!!

Service was disjointed and poor. Meal items were not served at appropriate times. Bussers failed to clean dishes timely or at the same time. Had to ask for items several times. Steak was under cooked, both times. Sent back the first one. Had to get a manager. He was very accommodating however my wife's 50th birthday dinner was spoiled by that time. He did comp the entrees and sides and gave her a birthday dessert, which was the only saving grace for the night.
