The food was wonderful and service spectacular. The place is definitely loud so if you're looking for a quiet, romantic restaurant this is not it. But if you're not than I recommend Lavo. You have to try the giant meatballs (we had the one with ricotta) and for dessert, the deep friend Oreos. The table beside us ordered them and... More

After eating here for the second time, I asked a friend who goes to Vegas often if he has ever been to that location. He mirrored my review of the NY location completely. Delicious food. Old-school attentive/knowledgeable waitstaff. In the NY location I did feel that they hire only those trying to make it in "the biz" though as they... More

We stumbled upon this spot while out shopping. We sat near the front of the restaurant on a banquette. The restaurant was not packed, but our waiter was not attentive. We split the burrata piazza which I think needs some tweaking. The dough felt mushy and undercooked. I think of they made it more of a couch flat bread it... More

Got in with a promoter friend and the idiot at the door Saturday night passes out tickets for his 10dollar an hour job to waive cover for who he chooses-- gave my 3 girlfriends a ticket and told me I have to pay cover. Dressed to the 9's looking better... More

Nice food, nice service and beautiful people. I ate a wonderful carbonara spaghetti. It was very creamy and tasteful. It was just missing a little salt, but very we'll done. I recommend this restaurant to have a good meal party.

I don't wanna write a long review about what I ate, drank, etc.. Just to say that the food was good, the portions were big (so plus for people who like big portions) the waitress was super nice, bartender also, and he made some good drinks (for me that's really important because I would drink one drink per night, so...

We were walking around Madison's Ave looking for a place to have brunch when we found this place. The place wasn't busy at all at 12 noon; huge restaurant playing live music. We were served fresh bread with tomato sauce dip that was heavenly. I had the lobster Benedict which was fantastic (one of the best Benedict's I've ever had)... More
