Scarpetta - The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas Ratings and Reviews
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.
Very disappointing overall. The restaurant was far too dark, the service was basically "OK" but not for fine dining establishment. We were very unfortunate to be sitting next to 3 pilots, one of which was very loud and sprinkled the entire evening with "F" Bombs and other language... which is not what you want to hear all through dinner... coupled with being right next to a station for the wait staff (but at least the register gave off some ambient light in the corner we were at)
Food was not especially good...
Oh well, mediocre experience for $$$$ bill............
At best, only ok. We picked it because it was the highest rated Italian restaurant in Las Vegas according to Yelp. If that is true, Las Vegas is not a good city for Italian food. We ordered three pasta dishes and a salmon entree. Only the salmon passed muster. Dont bother with Scarpetta
When the best part of a sit down meal is a cocktail and the dessert you know there is a serious problem! The bread basket to start is average and the accompaniments above average. For our meal, we started off with the tuna carpaccio which was flavorless except for the Serrano pepper which overpowered the dish and burned out tongue! The fritto misto was fresh and a good-sized portion but overly salty. The short rib agnolotti was the saltiest pasta dish I have ever eaten and we sent it back to the kitchen as it was inedible. We asked the waiter for another recommendation but he stood there blankly. We ordered the raviolini as a replacement which was bland and uninteresting. The pasta itself at Scarpetta is well made. Too bad the sauces, menu, and seasoning are so off! The Brussels sprouts were not memorable either. The passion fruit panna cotta on the other hand was absolutely delicious! Beautiful location overlooking the Bellagio fountains! I would not recommend this restaurant.
The restaurant is beautiful and great views of the fountains...the service was fantastic. If traditional Italian is what your looking for this is not your place.. with that said the waitress guided me to a dish that met my needs and was fantastic. I enjoyed everything but would not go back because it's just not my preference of Italian . Other than that I have nothing bad to say. I would recommend seeing the menu before you book your reservation
By far the best restaurant in Vegas. Not only is the service excellent, but the food is fantastic. We are used to eating expensive meals wherever we go, but most restaurants are not worth it. Scarpetta is worth every penny, from the scallop appetizer to the short rib agnolotti and the amazing kobe rib cap. Don't forget the cheesecake for dessert. We ate here two nights in a row and will gladly come back for more next time. We definitely recommend the tasting menu.
It was very good but I didn't enjoy the sauce on my Ossobuco but very tender! It was the sauce that turned me off. It tasted a little like barbecue sauce. My husband loved his veal parm. We had the scallop appetizer. Only 2 scallops for $22. Delicious but a bit pricey.
Overall it was a very good restaurant just not for me.
Beautiful view! Ask for a window seat facing the Bellagio if you decide to go. You can see the water show on the hour.
The service was extremely slow. Our server was clueless when asked about wine and which ingredients were in the seasonal mixed vegetables dish. The flavor of the food was good, which made up for the service. The plating of the agnolotti is really bad. Imagine ravioli cut up in small bites like it were for a child, then a finishing sauce squirted over the pasta like a teriyaki take-out. Despite the kids-menu appearance, it was very flavorful. Overall too many strikes to compete with the many other fine restaurants close by.
There was a very noisy table which ruined everyone's dinner,
it is supposed to be one of the best restaurants in Cosmo,
the manager took care of it but at the end of everyone's dinner.
That makes the standards low class.
Manager and our waitress were nice and polite by the way.
As always Scarpetta was at the top of its service and food. This was our 5th visit to this location. We have also dined at the original in NYC. We prefer this location much better. The wait staff and wine steward are always friendly and helpful. The fois grois ravioli is the best. Since 2 of us asked to split this as an appetizer and then ordered the veal chop parmigiana the waitress also suggested we split this as well. It was a wonderful suggestion as it was plenty for the two of us. We will return many times in the future.
Service is excellent! Both from a food & wine perspective.
I know the rent is high but when 98% of the bottles are over $100 come on really?!
Salads were all fresh and excellent !!
Breads - get rid of the others, the Stromboli is ridiculous !!
All the pasta dishes we had were excellent!!!
You can tell they are homemade and fresh!
Fish dishes were disappointing. No umami to them.
Little donuts for dessert were crazy good!!
The reviews for this spot were totally accurate. The food was great and the service was friendly and professional. Everyone loved their food and we had an excellent time watching the fountains.
We would happily recommend this spot for anyone looking for a romantic spot with handcrafted and fresh Italian food
We ordeded 1/2 dozen oysters that tasted great. Read alot of reviews about their spaghetti and so we ordered but that was Okayish and over hyped. We shared a Prime Filet Beef with a side of the Potatoes which was decent. Ordered myself a sazerac at the bar but it was totally not to my expectation as I could tell it wasnt made correctly. Overall, an average experience.
We went to Scarpetta a few years ago and when we were in Las Vegas last year we could not get a reservation so this year I planned ahead. We were so excited because it had been so wonderful the first time and I have to say it was even better this time. Everything from ambiance to food to service was EXCELLENT!!! We loved it and will go back every time we are in town.
Great dinner! Staff was very professional and friendly. A must have is the simple but homemade tomato basel spaghetti. The waiter split that for us and we shared a second dish to try it all. The yellow tail appetizer was excellent and I'd almost go back just for the bread basket.
