Great food but way too much of it

Went here on a recommendation from a friend. Booked on the day via top table, we were able to get there a little earlier so whilst we had a couple of drinks in the bar at Caesars my boyfriend went to see if we could have the table earlier which we could as it wasn't that busy. Unfortunately our... read more

We had a table for 6. The food and service were good to very good. The portions are very large, so dinner for a couple would limit you to one main dish unless you like to take food home. The menu is ala carte, and the prices were OK by Las Vegas standards, about $75 per person with wine /... More

We were seated immediately and everything (atmosphere, food, service, etc) was great. We were advised to make reservations, but we arrived around 5:00 and had no problem. I will visit again the next time I'm in Vegas.

I was there with a party of 7 and unfortunately we basically only got through appetizers because we all drank way to much chilling at Liquid at Aria all day (loved that though). Atmosphere inside was casual but nice. Service was good, wine selection was excellent. Apps - Calamari was ok, Meatballs were excellent, clams were ok. I did have... More

This is our go to restaurant to bring our friends to when we are in Vegas. I love sitting in the replica restaurant, you need to request it when ;making reservations. The veal parmagiana is very tender and huge. We were a group of six so we were able to share 3 entres and 2 pasta dishes and 3 salads,... More

Lighting is a little dark but we really enjoyed our waiter and our food. I came out very fast and the wine pairings were great. I would definitely come back!

Food was outstanding. The service was wonderful. I had the veal parmesan with the bone in and could not have been happier with my choice. Atmosphere was amazing as they recreated the original location within the restaurant. Felt like I was back in NYC for a minute. Go and enjoy!

We are from New York. In New York it is literally impossible to get into Rao's unless you know someone or have a standing reservations from years ago. So, when we saw there was a Rao's in Vegas, we made a reservation. Being transparent, I do not eat red meat. I say that because it severely limits the menu. I... More

Ordered the fritto misso which was calamari and shrimp for us it was really good even though we got only 2 shrimp and a lot of calamari. Everything else pasta wise tasted really good and served in generous portions, just wish they had a little more menu options.
