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.

We have been here several time and enjoyed it every time. The bartenders couldn’t do enough for you, and the servers went out of their way to make it a pleasant experience. As a matter of fact, we have reservations for tonight. I asked for our favorite waiter, Matt. He has taken care of us for the last three years. He helped us with our choices and was very knowledgeable with recommendations.

Waiter was great.
Typical Vegas highly over inflated prices and all a la carte.

Sauce tastes like it has Thai Basil, way overpriced and wine didn’t get the same assorted bread basket as every other table without asking and being made to feel like they were doing a favor for us.

We came because Rao’s sauce is the best on the market...& considering the difficulty to eat at their NYC location this was the next best option. We were not disappointed! The meatballs, osso bucco were the best we’ve ever had. Our server was great! Would definitely come back again..or if the miracle of all miracles occur& we get to eat in NYC!!
Thank you Rao’s!!

I love the Rao's cookbooks and cook from them all the time but usually add my own twist. Robert the bartender took good care of me as usual. I ordered the bone-in veal parm with a small side of spaghetti in bolognese sauce. It was very good. Being I'm from Chicago I was missing giardiniera though which they did not have. It goes on anything red sauce Italian I eat. That's the only thing I found lacking but most people outside of the Chicagoland area are unaware of what that is and understandable. Great place, I always love coming here.

Rao's has past it's prime. We have eaten there three times before and now it feels tired. Service was lack luster, food OK and that's not good at these prices. We will not be returning.

Disappointing. We’ve been a big fan of Rao’s for years, even buying their sauces and pasta direct from their NYC location. We were so disappointed to find that they have dropped items from their long-time menu, including my favorite pasta with ham and peas. My companion had expected to order his usual eggplant parm, but the waiter steered him away by disclosing that it really wasn’t the dish we had always gotten in the past, rather they now just dust the eggplant in flour and grill it. No more crispy and breaded like it should be. And the service really wasn’t up to par, slow even though the place wasn’t very busy, and with the waiter returning to the table quite some time later to help him decipher his notes on what we had ordered. The most positive comment is they haven’t changed their meatballs, which are fantastic. Won’t go back to this location —- too many great options in Vegas.

Most authentic Italian food I have ever had the pleasure of eating. The food was prepared to perfection. Russ our waiter had been the best waiter I ever had. Very personable, made us feel like part of the family. If your in Vegas and have a chance to eat at Rao’s make sure you do and ask for Russ to be your waiter. 5 stars

Our favourite place to dine in Las Vegas. The staff is attentive and friendly and very good at their jobs. The food is excellent, the wine menu varied, the presentation delightful and the setting relaxing and aesthetically appealing no matter where you are seated. I only wish I had a larger capacity to enjoy more courses!

Another wonderful meal at Rao's, never disappointed. This time we had the Mozzarella Carozza, Beef Lasagna and the Sundried Tomato Chicken Penne....all were fantastic. The staff is courteous and very accommodating. I will continue to add Rao's to my list of meals to have while in Las Vegas!

My fiancé and I were celebrating her 31 birthday at Rao's before watching Absinthe. We were sat by a very nice hostess that acknowledged her birthday and wished her a happy birthday. The server was very nice but never acknowledged the birthday which was kind of a let down. The food was good but the Tiramisu was our favorite, I was hoping they put a candle or some kind of birthday garnish but did not.

Dinner at Rao’s was great overall. First of all, the request for a nice, semi-private table was appreciated. Secondly, the service was quick and efficient. Lastly, the food selections were good, including the meatball appetizer and beef lasagne. This restaurant is definitely one of many great restaurant selections in Caesars Palace and in Las Vegas overall.

John was our waiter on March 31st. We had a 7:30 reservation. I wish we could have John as our waiter in every restaurant we go to, he was that outstanding. Thank you John for making my birthday dinner just that much more special.

We started with the Fried Green Tomatoe and Mozzarella cheese for an appetizer it was outstanding. We then shared the Veal Chop with a side of angel hair pasta and these dishes were also outstanding. John picked an outstanding Cabernet by the glass for me and last but not least my husband had Tiramisu and John brought me a chocolate brownie dessert for my birthday. We are in Vegas often so we will be back often

I ordered the Fruit di Mare and it was full of squid. No clams. It was also spicy and I don’t have a problem with spice but this was almost too much. They also were playing classic rock music which seemed weird. My pasta was $40. Though I couldn’t finish it all, the flavor wasn’t worth it. My husband’s bolognese was incredibly good. $31— so much more worth the money. We split the Caesar salad and that was the best Caesar salad I’ve ever had. I would not go back.
