We have eaten at Rao's Las Vegas three times in two trips to Las Vegas as my wife makes me take her there every time. The food is excellent, I would recommend the Ravioli with burnt butter and sage for main as we find this to be the pick of a good menu. Also try the famous meatballs. The sommelier... More

The veal was awesome, I could eat it all night. For dessert, get the tiramisu. The atmosphere was exemplary.

The food is just ok my wife and my grandchild dined for $250.00 but the management could not control this chef to bad. There won't be a next time there... More

Get the meatballs. Note the period. The pasta was overcooked. The prices were a bit high. But the meatballs, oh, the meatballs!

To be fair, it is Vegas, so what did I expect? However, the noise was deafening in the back (main) room. The two women sitting at the large tables near us who were trying to outdo each other for a screech owl competition didn't help. As far as food goes, it was pretty good - not fantastic, but I would... More

I usually don't get too excited about Italian food (Mexican is my favorite) but this was SO amazing. My favorite was the purse pasta with barlett pears and cranberries. The vodka penne was also exquisite! Served family style so everyone could pick something and we all tried it! One order of meatballs was perfect for 4 people... and another MUST... More

The reason for the low score is the food. The atmosphere, while a little noisy, was great, and our server Matt, did a great job. But the food for any price was not good. There were four of us and Matt suggested that since the portions were large and since I had read so many reviews on portion size, we... More

Rao did not disappoint. Our dinner companions had a Caprece salad which they thoroughly enjoyed and that was followed by a penne pasta with Arabiatta sauce that was spiced correctly. My partner and I had ordered the osso bucco and unfortunately there was only one left and it was tender and fell off the bone. My partner had a tender... More
