We found the restaurant to be very well staffed and displayed beautiful decor. The staff was both professional and efficient. Management came by on more than one occasion to ask how our experience was going. Food was delicious and exceeded our expectations. The cost was reasonable for such a quality Las Vegas Strip establishment. Overall excellent time.

This was our second time eating at Lavo, it didn't disappoint. My wife loves oysters so we started with a half-dozen and a glass of wine. For her entree she ordered the Charred Octopus, it was amazing! I'm talking a must try dish. I had the Veal chop and chose the Parmiagiano option. It too was fantastic.

It isn't a quiet place, but I would say it is good for a date...sadly, the date next to use didn't seem to be going so well but that had nothing to do with the restaurant.

Not only will we be back, we'll be recommending Lavo to anyone we hear is going to Vegas.

The lobster bisque was amazing! So flavorful and just perfect. The Oreo zeppoli was also very very good. Louie salad was ok. Service was impeccable and the restaurant was beautiful. I would absolutely go back in a heartbeat. The nonalcoholic cranberry drink so was good I had two!

We made a reservation to have a nice dinner at Lavo for my birthday at 8:30pm. The hostess was very nice however, they had us wait until our table was ready and we weren’t seated until after 9pm. The experience only got worse from there...

The waitress came and asked us if we wanted anything to drink besides the drinks we already had. After that we barely saw her. It took an extremely long time for them to serve us bread and you can imagine after 9pm we were very hungry.

We finally ordered dinner and the food was fabulous, very impressed. She never came over to check on our table even though we saw her check on every single other table throughout our meal multiple times. We saw the bus boys way more than the waitress and they were extremely nice and kept refilling our water throughout the meal. 5 stars for the bus boys.

We figured it couldn’t get any worse but then the waitress came over with a slice of cake with a candle, we figure it was for my birthday but then she went to the table next to us. We found out when we were about to pay that the cake was for me and that the other table accepted it even though it wasn’t their birthday. The waitress apologized, said that had never happened and offered to bring us something but we were already done with dinner and honestly a little annoyed. It was past 10:30pm at this point.

Overall, the food was great, loved the atmosphere but the service was terrible. Likely will not be coming back.

Visited Lavo last night with some friends and the service and the ambiance was the best thing there. The food was very disappointing. The salads and meatball was the best. The Chicken Parmesan . and the Chicken Marsala was the worst that I have ever had. Came out cold and over cooked. The Marsala was also dry over cooked and no sauce. Worst Italian in Las Vegas!

Great food. We ordered the seafood platter appetizer and we got a lot more food than we expected. Great value. I had the bone-in filet and my wife had "the meatball". Both were fantastic. We were pleasantly surprised.

Our service was not great, we weren't even in the dining room pushed into a corner with 2 broken chairs and bad lighting. I will not be returning as we were literally in a bus station for the staff. Over priced dining experience with an only so-so meal.

Service was extremely poor. The food was average at best. My steak was not properly cooked and by the time they brought another, the other 2 guests had finished eating. They had seafood pasta and chicken parmigiana and did not like their dishes as well. The most disappointing thing is they made no attempt at service recovery. On top of all that you couldn't converse due to noise level. We will never return.

We stayed in Pallazzo hotel, so it was very convenient for us to have dinner there. It's an Italian restaurant with a good menu. As my husband doesn't eat meat, they have good options for pasta and fish dishes.
We had tuna tartar, served on avocado slices with flat bread pieces on a side and a garden salad for an appetizer and we shared Roasted Chilean Bass main dish. We also pick mix of sautéed wild mushrooms side dish. It was a wonderful dining experience. Before the dinner, the waiter brought us complimentary fresh baked small size garlic bread with marinara sauce and some italian appetizers, like olives, little chunks of parmesan cheese, marinated vegetables. I would always recommend this place.

My wife and I enjoyed a great meal experience! The waitress was very attentive and coached us on some of the best dishes! The antipasto started things off and we were surprised with a complimentary caprese salad. Creamy mozzarella!!! The branzino was grilled to perfection and my wife’s rigatoni was delicious! Throw in some wine and Oreo zeppoles for dessert and we had a perfect dinner before heading to the theater! We love Lavo!!!

Absolutely amazing service! Was here for a bachelorette party in November. We were greeted with a round of free shots as soon as we sat down, most delicious shot I’ve ever tasted (not just because it was free, it was actually delicious!) I would absolutely visit here again and suggest you do too!
