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.

Lemon chicken was good, Chicken Parmesan was very dry, risotto tasted weird.

Went to Rao’s for a birthday dinner. Service was excellent. We started with the house salads, both my wife and I had one but we could have easily shared it. Then she ordered the crab carbonara and I had the lasagna. Both were spectacular. I highly recommend Rai’s and will be back in the future!

We live Rao’s. We are from the Philadelphia area & have actually had a chef from Rao’s do a private party at our house. Always great service. Always great food. The NY one is hard to get into. Visit the Vegas one if given the chance.

We had an excellent dinner with attentive staff. The hostess was in the weeds when we arrived for our reservation. She told us to stand off to the side while she organized her tablet and then asked us three more times what our name was. We stood there for nearly 15 minutes while she kept punching info into her tablet. We don't understand why she couldn't seat us first and then work on her tablet. It started our evening off a little bit strange. Some additional customer service training would help out the poor girl who was over her head.

Dinner was great. Ravioli purses and lasagna worth the cost. Be prepared to pay premium for drinks. Service was ok, waiter seemed rushed and did not offer suggestions or ask if we had questions.

Vibe is awesome. Old School. Quite a bit for pasta but hey, it’s Vegas. (Having said that...$5 for a basket of BREAD?) Come on guys.

All that being the case...I eat here every time I come to Vegas. I love it.

Guess I just need to make more money! :)

Big time CASINO/GOOD FELLAS vibe.

Give it a try.

The food was good. The only complaint I have is the food to price ratio. I understand it’s Vegas and everything is expensive. The size of lasagna I received was about the size of my fist it tasted great just wish for the price it was bigger or it at least came with a salad and bread. My wife got the crab pasta and it tasted great as well just really small portion for the price.

Service was great! Food was over-priced even for luxury strip dining. Romantic ambiance but dining room was still decorated for Christmas in May. Attentive staff but I would not go back.

Rao's restaurant provided an outstanding experience! The staff, bar, and management were exemplary. The food was outstanding! Learn the history of Rao's before you go and it makes it even more fun! The restaurant in Las Vegas is an exact replica (10 tables) of the New York facility. Fascinating photos of celebs everywhere. The bottom line is exceptional service, caring management, and Italian food beyond good!

The restaurant was average. They make you pay $5 for us very small cold bread basket. The food was nothing special. The ambience wasn’t up to par As the other restaurant in the hotel. If you’re craving Italian food it’s ok.

This was my second time to eat at Rao's. It was absolutely wonderful. My daughter and I shared the meatballs, caprese salad, and risotto. It was the best caprese we have ever had. The meatballs was delicious and HUGE. Parm risotto was delightful. Our waiter was most gracious and attentive. You can't go wrong eating here. It was worth every penny!

Our favorite Italian restaurant. Every trip to Las Vegas includes a dinner at Ray’s. Excellent food and service. Can sometimes be a bit noisy if you end up sitting near some loud diners.
