Italian

At each visit, the Rao's family wants it to feel as if yours is the only table in the room. The impeccable Southern Italian fare stems from the dishes' high-quality ingredients, such as house-roasted red peppers, freshly grated Pecorino-Romano and Parmigiano-Reggiano cheeses, Felipo Berio olive oil and certified San Marzano plum tomatoes imported from Italy. For more than 115 years, that's the way the family has cooked in their iconic New York kitchen, and tradition is alive and well at their Las Vegas restaurant.

The time-honored staples include perfectly cooked pastas, risottos and the mouthwatering steak bistecca; cooked perfectly and sliced tableside. The classic veal chop is pan-seared and topped with a medley of hot and sweet cherry peppers.

Red wine served at room temperature is a no no. Should be cellar temp. Lasagna was too dry. Needed more red sauce.

Since I'll never probably get an invite to dine at the one in NYC, this was my chance to try the lemon chicken firsthand I'd heard so much about. It was fantastic. My wife loved her pasta dish as well. We ate at the bar and Leslie our bartender was fun and attentive.

My boyfriend and I came here for our Valentine’s Day dinner. We live in NY city and the original one there is next to impossible to get a reservation at with the list being years long. So glad to be able to come to the one in Vegas. The room in which we dined was reminiscent of the NY location. The food was beyond amazing! I had that seafood risotto and he the surf and turf and we loved the overall ambiance. We’ll def be back! Thanks Rao’s Las Vegas for giving us such an memorable Valentine’s Day dinner.

If you’re an Italian-American, or anyone who’s experienced good Italian-American food, this isn’t the place for you. The food & drinks are way overpriced, the pasta is overcooked, and my veal parmesan was dry and tough. Great ambience, great waitstaff, but a huge waste of money. They truly don’t care about what they’re serving you and assume you won’t know the difference.

My wife and I stopped by for a quick pre-show Happy Hour light meal. Several nice glasses of wine, the spectacular Meatballs and a Salad were ideal. Will stop by again next time in Vegas

Our first time dining @ Rao with another couple. We bought to the restaurant a bottle of our own Cabernet wine to have with dinner —- but decided against opening it when our server told us that corkage fee is $50/per bottle!!!! The food was OK, my lasagna was a bit dry & it would probably tasted better if the entree came out temperature hotter. I didn’t want to send it back & have everything wait to eat......

I was really disappointed right from the beginning. We had a reservation and the table wasn’t ready. We had to wait 20mins to get seated. The worst part was we had show tickets so then we were rushed to order and inhale our food to make the show. I had the beef lasagna and it was slightly dry. I wish it had more sauce. My wife had some gnocchi dish which she wasn’t very impressed with either. I’m not sure I need to return to this restaurant and if I do it’s gonna take some major improvements for me to want to recommend it to anyone

Can’t believe the small portion of eggplant parmigiana served without a side of pasta. The skin left on the four silver dollar size slices of eggplant.

We wanted to compare this restaurant to Rao's in West Los Angeles (which we enjoy).
Restaurant was crowed and noisy. Staff was friendly and helpful. Dinner was delicious. Not sure about returning as Las Vegas has many choices to select.

I brought the veal chop and I know what a veal chop should taste like and to be honest with you I think they think I was born yesterday and I would bet anything what you gave me was a pork chop and the meat was so tough I think I could still see the scars on the meat from where the jockey hit it I have bought veal chops in the past the meat when ordered medium should melt in your mouth .
