Our concierge at THE HOTEL had recommended this for dinner after blue man group. We were looking for a nice Italian place for a group of 10. I was surprised that the restaurant is located right on the casino floor across from the blue man group theatre. They seated us very promptly and had us in a separate room in the back, which was nice since it gave us an opportunity to talk without too much noise. I had read pretty good reviews here, but must say I was slightly disappointed. Our server did not seem very attentive, and several people in the group noted her behavior and commented on it ranging from "a bit sassy" to "rude". I hoped we would get better service for a large group, but I guess she knew she could count on her gratuity for a group over 8 and she did add roughly add a $50 tip. I love Italian food and have visited Italy several times. I was not impressed with the food. Only bread we had was a very soft and spongy focaccia bread with an olive oil dip. The bread tasted like something you could buy packaged at an Italian deli out of a plastic bag, not a good sign for things to come. We had a mixed cheese and sausage platter and calamari as appetized. Small plates, more stale now thin slized baguette bread with the platter, calamari were ok, only dip was marinara (not my favorite). My main dish was pappardelle, which also were just ok. Desserts we ordered were crime brûlée and tiramisu. I think we just ate half of the desserts. Tiramisu was mostly thick ladyfingers, very dry tiramisu. Two very thin layers of cream, hardly any coffee or liqueur taste. I have tasted many versions of tiramisu and love different variations of this dish, but this was by far the worst I have tried. Verne brûlée had fresh vanilla, but was cold, firm and not tasteful. No presentation on either. Overall I would definitely not come back and am sure there have to be better places for Italian food.
