This is a slow, decadent dining experience. Expect dinner to take 2+ hours but it’s timed out well to allow you to savor the courses. We were getting a bit antsy by the end but the food was delicious and the view cannot be beat. The best dish all night was the chickpea panelle - divine and well balanced.

Outstanding service from everyone in the restaurant. Beautiful view of the strip and great ambiance . The venue is at top of the Palms in the spot where Alize was once located. The bread is milled in house, never heard of such a thing. Some of the best coffee ever so save some room for an after dinner cup. The noise level was good I can't handle extremely noisy restaurants.

Made a reservation for an anniversary dinner. Wanted to enjoy a great meal and the great view. Unfortunately, we were seated in a back room with no view of the skyline. Service was very poor. It took over 20 minutes to get a glass of wine, and 45 minutes to get our appetizers. The food was tasty, but very expensive for what you get. Place is kind of wine snobby, and you pay for it. Basic glasses of wine were $25-$30 each; with most bottles in the $150-$250 range.

It was virtually impossible to have a conversation because the acoustics are terrible!! The sound and conversations from nearby tables bounces off the low ceiling and the window glass, and it is deafening...so annoying to the point we couldn’t talk to each other and found ourselves frustrated to the point of wanting to leave. My date just stopped talking altogether. It ruined what was a lovely dinner. The tortellini pasta dish I had was delicious although the portion a bit too meager and dry; my companion said his was very good. The wines were excellent. Additional annoying note: the hostess kept circling repeatedly with her iPad checking on tables and we felt like we were being watched and rushed. Not good. Lots of circling staff but not a lot being done. We were taken care of but at the end it took a while to get the check settled. They obviously need to tighten up the service, fix the acoustics and get the menu in shape. Definitely promise for this as the clientele was upscale and ambiance quite elegant.

Wonderful experience!
Went there with my partner for our anniversary dinner. Very attentive and friendly service and once the staff knew that we were celebrating everyone involved was congratulating us and we got a sweet message with dessert also, wishing us a happy anniversary. The food was delicious and reasonably priced for the quality. Portions were a satisfying size also.
Overall a great experience, would definitely recommend!

Interesting menu ( I noticed it changes daily), we tried Porchetta app., and wilted salad; paperdelle with mushrooms, tortellini with almonds, and swiss chard gnocchi; and shared the bone in rib eye. Zeke coordinated a team waiting experience. It is a little loud but we had a great "date night ." The dishes were what one would expect from a James Beard Award winner...that is tasty all around. Nice job from the team.
Thanks..we live here and we'll be back.

I would recommend a table next to the window. The presentation, food and service is second to none!
We visit Vegas once a year and this is a place that will be added to our to do. We highly recommend Vetri!

Vetri was one of our favorite restaurants we ate during our trip to Vegas. We had two pastas and shared an antipasti between My husband and I. I had the Almond ravioli and he had the beef ragu, both were excellent. The portions are on the smaller side, but the waitress was very good about explaining the size and how the pastas are meant to be ordered with an entree. We finish the meal with the pistachio flan, one of the best desserts I’ve had.

The setting on the 56th Floor of the Palms is outstanding. We had a lovely table for two at the window. Our server was very pleasant and had a full knowledge of the menu. We decided to share a starter and have two pasta dishes. We shared the Sweet Onion Crepe ($20). This was by no means an item to share. There were two small bites each. If I could fault our server she should have warned us that this item extremely small. The flavour was decent. My wife had the Casoncelli alla Bergamasca with sage and pancetta ($32). Similar to a tortellini quite tasty. I had the Chestnut Fettucine with wild boar ragout ($34). The dish was cooked perfectly and delicious. Portions are quite small as they are not intended to be the main course, so they say. Bread was served to the table. Two glasses of wine ($18 each) and Chocolate Souffle ($18) and the bill came just over $150 (taxes in). Overall we enjoyed our meal but very expensive for what we had.

Service was terrible. Server never touched table, never spoke or acknowledged us. Did not even say thank you when he dropped the bill. The food was ok. Had the tortellini with “truffle butter” but no truffle in sight not even chopped nor truffle scent which is strong. Next time add truffle. Gnocchi was good but 7 small pieces for a $30 seems very small. The best was the fettuccine mushroom but again very small. It was like mushroom topped with fettuccine instead of fettuccine topped with mushrooms. :/ expected a lot more but then again its Vegas!

The only positive item for this restaurant is the view but the ambience is ruined by the loud music. The menu is limited and absent of many Italian favorites such as veal dishes. The prices are way out of line for what you receive as the food is mediocre at best. The service was very disjointed with the runners not even knowing which dish went to what person. They do not allow you to bring your own wine with a corkage fee. The wine prices are very high. We ordered a white Burgundy and had to wait for it to be chilled. The are too many quality high end restaurants in Las Vegas to be bothered with this on just for the view. We will not be returning to Vetri Cucina.

Great views, great ambiance. Food was so-so, unfortunately. For entrees, I had one of the pasta dishes -- the chestnut ragu -- which was fairly basic and like many other places I've been to before. I was hoping for more chestnut-ness. Also arrived and was lukewarm. My husband ordered the seafood misto, which was literally grilled seafood on a plate. I thought they could have done more with it. Overall, fairly expensive for what you got (not quantity, but quality).

Amazing and so not surprised. Beautifully casual and elegant with a rustic vibe. Very comfortable and not stuffy and the staff from Philadelphia are awesome! You would never think pasta could taste so good. Enjoyed the wines and view! I have been to Marc's place in Philadelphia several times and Vegas does not disappoint! Thank you for taking such good care of us!

Outstanding. Philadelphia style blended with a very classy Las Vegas twist. The service left us with the feeling that the entire staff really cared about ensuring that the guests had a truly superior dining experience, not simply because they were well trained for it, but because they each really wanted it to be so. We could hear other nearby parties expressing similar thoughts amongst themselves. The entire space is exceptionally well done and the views of the entire Las Vegas strip from the 56th floor of the Palms are stunningly unmatched compared to other LV restaurants. Inside is modern chic without any unnecessary glitz or gimmicks, creating a very genuine feel of a boutique style restaurant and does not feel at all thematically formulaic like many so called celebrity-chef “hot spots” around town. The food is amazing in a way that is authentic while at the same time, unique. If you are a patron of the namesake restaurant in Philadelphia, you will recognize and be delighted by many of the famous staple dishes, and have some amazing new creations to try. The a-la-carte rather than tasting menu format is also a fun twist, but remember to pace yourself (our party of 2 had 4 pastas between the appetizers and main course-fortunately we arrived hungry). Have dessert. Even if you think you are full, you can’t go wrong. The ricotta gelato with dark chocolate, candied orange, and olive oil is an amazing treat for the eyes and taste buds. This is how to dine out.

Fabulous view of Las Vegas lights from the 56th floor if the Palms, and an equally matched ambiance. Excellent customer service, with a unique menu. The bread and pasta are homemade and actually milled in the kitchen; which is below the restaurant. Vetri Cucina is a grand experience from start to finish.
