Friendly waitress. The food was normal, I`ll say overpriced for what it was. I had ravioli alla vodka, and my friend penne alla diabola. I don`t like spicy food and my food was so spicy that my friend tried it and said her sauce tasted the same. I asked the waitress if "alla vodka" was supposed to be spicy, since... More

We eat here quite a bit when in the Golden Nugget Casino. We usually get the Margherita Pizza and it's awesome. They also have happy hour specials which are equally good.

The pizza and desserts were great! The waitress was super friendly and you did not feel like anyone was rushing you out the door.

Ordered the snapper $23.99. Came with potatoes smothered in red sauce and spinach that had more garlic throughout than spinach! Shrimp sauce? No shrimp! The snapper had pieces of burned spaghetti pasta on the bottom of the plate. Could not eat. Maybe the pizza is good but .... Service was good but no one is looking at the expediting of... More

I always enjoy this restaurant. I had the shrimp scampi. Jeff has the seafood and pasta dish. Top-notch service and also a great wine list. This venue is conveniently located just off the casino floor and nearby the Rush Lounge

Food is very good, sunday's are half priced bottles of Italian Wine and worth it, service is average - don't get a table near the kitchen exit, you will constantly be ducking

Food and service was excellent! We truly enjoyed our meals and dessert! I had the chicken Parmesan dinner. The chicken was moist and delicious, pasta was fresh and light. Bread basket and family style salad was enjoyed by all 4 of us. The strawberry cassata is the best dessert that I ever had! Highly recommend this place. Would be great... More

I've walked past this restaurant more times than I can count. Thanks to my daughter visiting, we went here for dinner, at her suggestion. The service was exceptional. My wife and daughter had different chicken dishes, one with artichoke hearts the other, in a cream sauce. I went the old school route with a chicken parmesan, and wasn't disappointed. Prices...

This is Landry's attempt at Italian food at the Golden Nugget Casino. Service was slow and incompetent. The food was typical of Landry's, poor. Stay away
