Rao's is a nice stop in the hotels Palace area and it's right in the heart of excitement. You can eat and drink while you watch all the excitement happen around you. It's a very fun restaurant and the food is great.

First, let me say the food was good, but there was too much of it! We sat down and the server(Sean O.) asked us if we wanted to order drinks. We'd been to a winery in the afternoon, so we said no - water would be fine, I think that was our down fall. We think he wanted to run... More

Vendor took us here last night. Food was as expected and expensive. Steak was okay, Pork Chops were over cooked. Expected more for the reputation and being in hotel. Would not eat here again with all the better choices out there. Just average food for this area.

I saw the Barefoot Contessa cook at Rao's NY so I skipped pasta which I usually have to have at an Italian restaurant. The caprese salad looked small but it was perfect. The lemon chicken was excellent but the peas and prosciutto were my favorite! The creme brûlée flavor was plain-perfect! Very creamy. Excellent service and great wine. All around... More

The food was pretty good unfortunately the service was awful. There is so many options in Vegas that this one doesn't really stand out.

Knew this place from New York which is legendary there. The place in Vegas is about ten times bigger and this for sure a reason why the charme is not the same. Thought it be hard to get in there but getting an table was easy. Food was good but portions are big enough to share for two. The way... More

Myself and my new wife dined at Rao’s in Caesars Palace as part of our honeymoon trip. We had not previously reserved at the restaurant and was just a walk in client. We chose the restaurant after I had recently seen an episode of Gordon Ramsay’s Kitchen Nightmares USA where Gordon took 2 failing restaurant owners to Rao’s to show... More

Part of what makes Italian food so amazing is its simplicity. Typically, that simplicity is coupled with an affordable price, but that certainly is not the case here at Rao's. All I ordered was Pasta and meat sauce with 2 meatballs. That was $50! I know I'm in Vegas, and I should be accustomed to higher prices, especially in the... More
