First off, let me say that the service was very good. The food is old 1960's era bad Italian food. All the same sauce on every dish. Salad with packaged croutons and overly sweet dressing. I ordered the veal, and still am not sure if it was veal. I guess some people like it because they are stuck in a... More

I appreciated the food and the atmosphere, being in the 55+ age group. It reminded me of restaurants in the 1980's as far as extensive menu, largish portions, sauces, moderate prices, decor. BUT what is wrong with that, when you think of it? The service was professional and efficient. The staff was just friendly enough. Thats good too. A refreshing... More

My fiance and I were staying at the hotel that Hugos is located in. (AKA: Assisted living home that never came to fruition...No. Really) We decided to stop in Mesquite for our one night stay because it was about 100 bucks cheaper than staying in Vegas on a Sat night....Anyhoo. Fiance was hungry so we decided to scope out the... More

We had been looking for an Italian restaurant and someone recommended this one (they raved about it). Again-most people in this town are looking for large portions at cheap prices. I found the food here to be really quite bad and wouldn't recommend it to anyone. The veal in the veal parmesan was a deep-fried, over-cooked breaded hockey puck with... More

Enjoyed a casual evening dinner with my golf buddies after a game. The restaurant location is bit deceiving, as it is adjoined to extended stay hotel/apartment complex. The atmosphere is not flashy but very comfortable. The service was excellent with professional friendly people, in addition to the chef coming out to greet us! The Italian food was delicious and the... More

If you've eaten good Italian food, Hugo's won't make you happy. It's primarily for the local golfing crowd who don't seem to mind. But, otherwise rather mediocre food and service. Boring salad or soup, sticky thick sauces that overwhelm the food, and dry-ish chocolate cake for dessert. You don't leave hungry, but we won't be back.

After reading other reviews we expected a classy italian restaurant sitting on a hilltop offering creative and individually prepared dishes. What we got was an average restaurant. It is on a hill but there are no windows so you wouldn't know once you get inside. Salad was bland. Entrees seemed to have come out of the refrigerator and reheated. Taste... More

What a neat luxury . . . . just a few yards down the hall from our suite at the Highland Estates Resort is Hugo's, and it's warm and pleasant with nicely-set tables. Both establishments are up on a hill away from the casinos. Good variety of selections on this menu and portions are generous. Background music is just right... More
