**For parties of 5-13, please call (702)731-7373 and for parties of 14 or more please call (866)733-5827 to reserve**

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.

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.

This is the first time that my guest and I had to send both meals back to the kitchen.
Food tasted like it was from the day before. This is suppose to be a nice Italian Restaurant.
Food came to the table within 10 minutes of ordering. what did they cook? Pasta takes 10 minutes to cook. Sorry to say but food tasted like it was warmed in the microwave and put on a plate. We were very disappointed in the food.

The food was fantastic!! The dining room felt like old school Vegas !! Loved it. Our waiter had a tough night. Very slow service. Seemed to be distracted. At the end he disappeared and couldn’t get our tab. He finally showed up and gave us someone else’s tab!! I gave a one for service because of this. We will be back because the food is so good.

Rao's is everything is hyped up to be. I'm not going to lie, it is a bit pricy but, we didn't have a problem with it. We had the meatball appetizer and lasagna. They both were amazing!!!!

Food was very underwhelming. Everyone said "have the meatballs, they are amazing" tasted like a microwaved meal. It was just ehhhh, especially for the money.

My family thought the food was ok. We were expecting so much more because of the name, location and reviews. We did not mind the $4 for 4 pieces of bread, or the wait when there was no one there. We did really love the service. That is where you guys score 5 stars.

If you are into classic New York Italian cooking then Rao's is your place. Recipes that started in Hell's Kitchen in 1896. Very good service and attention to detail. Food was awesome.
