Italian
Dine in true Italian fashion while overlooking the famed fountains at Scarpetta. The name comes from an Italian expression meaning “little shoe,” the shape bread takes when used to soak up a dish. In this way, Scarpetta is true to its name, delighting in the pleasure of savoring a meal down to the very last taste. This earthy-yet-sophisticated approach to Italian cuisine features a soulful menu of seasonally-inspired fare.

The food was not impressive at all and I’m not even factoring the cost of the food. Unfortunately we were very unimpressed.

This restaurant was recommended by a friend and this is first time all year it worked with my schedule. This is the best dining experience I have had in a long time. Everything was perfect. I had the scallops appetizer and was not sure about the grilled peaches and fennel but it was a perfect pairing. The pasta with lobster was divine. I’d love to eat the toffee with pretzels from the caramel budini every day.

Everything was AMAZING, from service to food! We had the spaghetti with meatballs and it was delicious! Homemade pasta and meatballs that melt in your mouth were sooo good!! We will definitely add Scarpetta to our list for future trips.

We have been to Scarpetta multiple times in the past, but this experience was by far our best. Jason was our server and perfectly paced everything for our meal. He was great to talk to and informative about the food and wine. We did the tasting menu with the wine pairings and it was one of the best meals we've ever had. We highly recommend it and will be back the next time we're in town!

Great experience. Well executed all around. The bread appetizer was exceptional in itself. Spaghetti my wife had was unbelievable. My chicken Marsala as good as or better than any I’ve ever had. Dessert tasted as wonderful as it looked. Chocolate cake with amaretto gelato. Excellent.
Service was on point all around.
This place was worth every cent.
Go here you I promise you’ll enjoy it. I’ve worked around hospitality industry my whole life and eaten at 100s of restaurants. This one is on point all around.
I live in Raleigh NC and I swear not affiliated or getting any comps for this. It was just that good.

Had a lovely dinner with a view of the Bellagio Fountain show. Celebrated 2 birthdays and I would recommend the Oysters, Scampi and Short Rib pasta. The cocktails are amazing as well, I look forward to dining in again.

We had a fantastic experience dining at Scarpetta. My husband and I were celebrating our anniversary so decided to splurge on the tasting menu with wine pairing. Every course of the tasting menu was superb - we very much enjoyed the taste and presentation of the dishes and the wine they were paired with. There was not one thing we did not like. Great dining experience all around. And if you get a window table - you can have a view of Fountains at Bellagio.

Best meal ever. We were sat right by the window and got to watch the Bellagio water show. The entire meal was amazing - from the bread to our carpaccio appetizer and spaghetti and chicken Marsala entrees. We finished with the tiramisu which was to die for. We will definitely be returning next time we are in Vegas.

The restaurant environment was set up nicely and the service was great!!! However the food was not the best. My husband ordered short rib and he said it tasted like a pot roast. Also the portion size was a bit small. I ordered the lamb bolganese and my dish was ok. We probably won’t return to this one.

Hmm. Something was off at this recent dining event. I brought my mother & niece to celebrate my birthday. I made my reservation about a month ½ in advance and requested center seating and a seasoned server.
At an early check in, the male manager looked over the notes but did not enthusiastically greet us or mention my birthday “Celebrating a birthday folks? Welcome,” etc.., etc..” Okay, whatever, older Vegas managers aren’t the most energetic greeters. Moving right along.
The waitress (who seems perhaps a better fit for Olive Garden per her removed demeanor) attempted to seat us against a wall with no other patrons in close proximity. Yes please seat me against a wall for my birthday so we can be lonely on this special day. All I got was “We can’t guarantee a seat” which according to other reviews is not the case. You map out your reservations ahead of time and keep a few floats open. I advised we would wait, then another 15 minutes or so to be seated. You should train your hostess to Maitre’D so the flow can happen vs random seating.
The server jumped into the menu w/no introduction. He was pleasant and quick and attentive enough but seemed to be drowning in tables & receipts (quite literally). The food itself was flavorful, and fresh. No complaints there, & worth the prices in my opinion. After desserts I told the waiter “Thank you for making my birthday great.” He said “Oh!” and had no idea. He came out with a birthday plate and a small cookie assortment—after the fact.
This restaurant has all of the ambience and sensuality to really be the hidden gem it once was. Tasteful music, thoughtful dining layout w/private rooms, a good seemingly classy and well-heeled crowd, and a tasty menu that can tickle your appetite. A restaurant of this caliber should have a smooth operation and a nice flow that the conductor ensures is in rhythm.
The steps of service need that proverbial WD-40. Might be some months before I go back as we all expect more of a AAA rated place.

Scarpetta was a wonderful dining experience. My wife and I tried three of the pasta dishes and all were amazing. The spaghetti, agnolotti, and ravioli were as good as any we have had in Italy, probably better. My only complaint, and it is minor, is that our waiter failed to mention the specials of the evening which we heard being presented to another couple. Having said that, I’m glad we ordered what we did. We will return to Scarpetta whenever in Las Vegas.

Scarpetta renewed our faith in Las Vegas dining and service. After having an over-priced, poor service, and boring dinner at Old Homestead, we were very pleasantly impressed with the food, SERVICE, and reasonably priced dinner at Scarpetta. Would highly recommend this restaurant.
They were very kind, split entrées for us and made sure we were well taken care of.
I’m jealous of anyone who gets to go. Wish we lived closer. It would be a regular haunt for us!

I didn’t know what to think going into a place owned by a dude who has been on the food network but this place is the real deal. Proper tasty pasta and an incredible branzino with the most amazingly crispy skin I’ve ever had on a piece of fish. I’m kind of a pasta snob - I usually am disappointed when I get pasta out but I was pleasantly surprised.

Only thing lacking was the dessert. It was okay but okay is not good enough after the rest of the meal is so top notch.

I’ve eaten at Scarpetta in the former Beverly Hills location and they set the bar for all the categories. This location failed to meet that standard and that is so disappointing. Our group was seated in a private dining area which was perfect. Our drinks were amazing and the service was as well. The drinks were so good that my wife and I stuck around after dinner just for another drink at the bar then returned the next night for drinks again before calling it a night.

The food fell very short. The wrong dishes were brought to the table, the food was lukewarm, very under seasoned, we all had to salt our food because it lacked flavor. The yellow fin was very good. Polenta lacked any flavor, the short rib was cold, lamb bolognese was lukewarm, wrong steak dishes were brought out, the scampi was so under seasoned that one of the guests didn’t eat his meal.

I seriously hate writing this review because I’m a huge Scarpetta fan.
