Scarpetta - The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas Ratings and Reviews
Nothing special. Disappointing considering the amount of money we spent. Our main waiter was not friendly or helpful, wished the guy who brought our bread or the woman who filled our waters had been our waiter/waitress as they were friendly and accommodating. Did have a nice view of the Bellagio Fountains.
Amazing food and exceptional service. My girlfriend was wearing a black dress, so our server gave her a special black napkin (instead of the normal white ones) so that she wouldn’t get lint over her dress. That obviously has nothing to do with the food, but that gives you an idea of the attention to detail here. Food was very good, came out very quickly too. The server knew exactly what wine I wanted from my vague description, which I appreciated a lot. Atmosphere is very upscale and fancy, don’t wear a t-shirt here.
We have had better meals at Scarpetta. Our biggest issue was pacing food. We were served our main course before even tasting our choice of wine. The glasses of wine were poured and here came the same food of a few minutes ago. It was still warm, it was delicious, but it seemed like we were being rushed. Too bad, Scott!
Beautiful views of the Bellagio fountains- actually our “early” (for Vegas) Reservations at 6:00 worked to our advantage, as we got a seat up against the windows with the fountain view. Roberto was classy and described dishes perfectly. I highly recommend the raviolini. Pillowy, light cheesey ravioli in a traditional Parmesan flavored salty broth. (Chicken stock base I’m guessing) Incredibly different— never had any dish like this at an Italian restaurant. Dessert I chose the strawberry panna cotta and it also was exceptional and unique.
Scarpetta surpassed our expectations. Service was excellent, and food was really out of this world good. The vaunted spaghetti deserves all the praise it gets. It's OUTSTANDING, and it's just spaghetti! Every dish we had (we did the tasting menu) was outstanding and memorable, with the exception of the chocolate cake and amaretto gelato. Cake had a strange texture and I expected it to be a knockout, but it was just OK. But everything else was worth reordering!!
Really good but not great 5 star food. Service needs to be a bit more polished. i met three people in the first 5 minutes and wasn’t sure who was our waiter. Dirty Martini came back “clean”, no one asked how our meal was or if we needed anything during the meal. Really service wasn’t any better than most restaurants and i expected more given the price and ratings
Please skip this location and only go to the one in Miami, which is mind-blowing.
Complimentary bread: best part of the meal, especially the eggplant spread
Octopus appetizer: fairly tasty, but the beans were too salty and thus inedible. The Miami version is perfection in a way that will make you year up, but this Vegas version just passed.
Polenta: bland. But get this in Miami and you'll wonder why you can't eat it for every meal
Scallops: very good, cooked to perfection.
Duck and foie gras ravioli: So salty I could barely finish it. And I add salt to everything. The reduction was reduced too much, making the entire plate inedible but I was hungry.
Everything was amazing! They didn't offer the tasting menu on the night we dined there, but they helped us make our own which was excellent! They even pair wines with each course. Spagetti lives up to the hype and the scallops were delish. I think my favorite was the bread and the pici pasta. Definitely will be back.
Wine with cork debris.
So late to bring coffee and tea when I ordered the dessert.
Food is great but service looks bothering the quality.
Biggest problem is that my complaining had not passed to the manager. Whenever I talked my feedback to each one (3 persons) from low to high level, one feedback was missed at each time. I don’t think the restaurant manager fully understood the whole issue when he tried to apologized. It seems that each of his crew swallowed his fault each time so that their manager was reported with only partial of problems.
Specially I was so surprised that the mid manager who looks working as Sommelier missed to report his fault about the wine debris that the restaurant manager seemed never heard.
The service was good and the ambience elegant. The food was good, but nothing to write home about. I have had better Italian, when it comes to home made pastas. We also ordered the Calamari Misto, which was suppose to be Calamari, Shrimp, and Vegies. We got no shrimp, cauliflower, calamari, and some other vegie I can't recall, which obviously was not memorable. I expect to get what's on the menu for such a high end restaurant, or at least be advised of the change prior to serving us the dish. Our waiter was very friendly, attentive, and polite, which I have to say was a plus. He did not bring the appetizer out and perhaps did not realize that the change had been made.
My search for a romantic birthday dinner for my Wife brought me here, and we could not have been happier. Starting with warm birthday greetings from the hostess, moving on to special seating by the window overlooking the Bellagio fountains, we were on our way. The wait staff was friendly and knowledgeable, and the food was delicious. From the warm bread basket featuring 4 different selections, to the perfect scallop appetizer, culminating in two fabulous pasta entrees...what a great meal! Thank you to Scarpetta for making my Wife's birthday so special!
The best thing about Scarpetta is the food. Everything we ate was outstanding! The service definitely could have been better and it was really cold in the restaurant the night we were in there. It's going to cost you a little bit if you go in there, but again, the food was very high quality. It's a good atmosphere to bring a date or to celebrate an anniversary.
I was excited to go here because I love Scott Conant. I was surprised there were so few people there. Super dark. Other than that it was great. View of Bellagio water show. Food was fantastic. The people next to us were acting like big shots but discussing leaving the waiter a paltry tip - which was annoying but not the restaurant’s fault. Veal was amazing. I hope more people come here on average so this one doesn’t go away.
An absolutely delightful experience. Lovely food served attentively but with no pretentiousness. Food was delicious to both the eye and to the taste. That you have a superb view of Bellagio's fountains adds another layer of fun. An all-around charming experience. Adding to the evening's pleasure, we learned the gender of our grandchild-to-be thru behind the scenes machinations surrounding dessert, arranged by our daughter (who was not at dinner with us) with Euny (sp?). Staff could not have been more kind. With special thanks to Euny.
With so many exceptional restaurants on the Strip it’s rare to find one that really - really - stands out. This one does. Scarpetta (Scott Conant) blew us away with the ambience, the view (Bellagio fountain), the service, but most of all the FOOD! The lobster pici will change your life. This one’s a must.
Such a stunning restaurant. We were seated by the fountain and got a fun show every few minutes. My biggest disappointment was how dark the restaurant is. Unable to take any photos at all (without the flash...we didn’t want to disturb anyone) we were majorly bummed. It was hard to see our food as well. I would not visit this site again.
