Stopped in here because I was told they had cannoli. Turns out they did not. Got a cup of coffee and ordered a crepe instead. Girlfriend got some chocolate mousse. Coffee and crepe were both just alright. Staff seemed more interested in their conversations amongst each other than the needs of the customers.

They serve Illy coffee, which is a premium roasted coffee. This is the standard which most Italian bars in Italy strive to achieve. I like the coffee, the gelato is good, but everything else is too high priced.

Their gelato is a highlight of our trips to Las Vegas. However, their prices are high even for Las Vegas. The friendliness of the staff is hit or miss. Nevertheless, we look forward to our next visit.

Nothing to write home. Gelato and Sherbert are okay...but for $6.25 a scoop, you would expect good. My son had a crepe with Nutella and strawberries--$11.95. Must be very high rent in this mall.

Nice little shop and the two times I went there got a great cup of Illy coffee. However, one time waited way too long and customer service was poor to my expectations. However, the consistently slow pace the servers were working made me think this was normal in their cultural upbringing. The other time, could not break change for $100... More

My first time for gelato at Espressamente illy at the Palazzo in Las Vegas. I got my fav - PEANUT BUTTER - and it was delicious. It imparted just the perfect amount of PB flavor - not too overwhelming and not too light.

We always stop here for some gelato and crepe whenever we are staying at the Palazzo. We just love everything about this place and had been a loyal customer for more than 5 years. Price is a little pricey being in a classy hotel but well worth it.

Having experienced this establishment in Italy, it was a must for us to try. Our drinks were perfect. My wives latte was harder to put down with each sip. My cappuccino was one of the best I've had stateside, ever. Made to perfection. The flavors were intense but the drink was smooth. Oh, and my chocolate croissant was excellent!

Recently has a midday meal to tide us before dinner. Coffee always good, but the pastries not that great and so was the gelato. The location is excellent since it is on the hallway between the Venetian and Palazzo and would always have a line.
