“Blessed to have a gem in our backyard!”
Reviewed March 7, 2013

Off the Strip...shhhh....i wanna keep it to myself! This is one of the best restaurants in the area, bar none. Service - impeccable. Food - YUMMO! Atmosphere - lots of fun. We moved here in October 2012 and we always take guests there. We live in Southern Highlands so it's such a blessing to not have to drive the strip to go to have a delicious meal. Did i mention the service?

“Satisfaction Guaranteed”
Reviewed March 4, 2013

Visited OTS on wednesday feb. 20 at around 5:00pm. Our group of 4 was seated immediately as the dining room was about 3/4 full. Started off with beer from their vast selections and also wine. We starteour food order with a caesar salad that was very good. I ordered the grilled salmon dinner which was a thicker piece of fish than most restaurants serve and it had a very good flavor plus it came on a bed of brown rice. My wife had the chicken saltimbocca which is two large chicken breasts with prosciutto on top. She gave her dish a thumbs up! The cheesecake is the absolute best in the world! I always enjoy my night out at OTS and will return whenever I visit the Vegas area.

“Great food! Great service! "Yummy"”
Reviewed March 1, 2013

Our party of five was seated immediately even without reservations. The folding tables and simple chairs belie the quality of food and attention we teceived. Wait staff was fantastic! Our water glasses were never allowed to go less than half full. Two of us had the pork chop special and couldn't set down our forks until it was gone. One had the chicken saltimbocca: two large chicken breasts topped with prosciutto. Wow! The other two had pasta. No one was disappointed. The waitress bought us a slice of cheesecake as a gift for our first visit. We will be back.

“Fantastic Food in Vegas but "Off the Strip"”
Reviewed March 1, 2013

1st, this place is not s sports bar as some reviews have stated. true it does have ESPN on all the large screen tvs, but the atmosphere & food is not a sports bar! Off the Strip in a local upscale place that serves well above average food!. I had the best best pork chops I have ever eaten anywhere. period here! Decor is modern & comfortable. You will see locals, families and a couple out for dinner here. this tells me that "off the strip" has found a niche' in the crowed Vegas market! One caveat though, this is a $$$ place not a $$. We spent over $70 for our dinner plus tip, but it was well worth the short trip of the strip!

“Worth the Drive”
Reviewed March 1, 2013

We had no idea how far this place was from the strip but found out $40 later in a taxi. It's definitely worth going to; however, it would have been more cost efficient to rent a car for the day and next time we will. Once we recovered from the taxi fare, we thoroughly enjoyed the comfortable atmosphere of this Italian restaurant. Our server, Jack was attentive and knowledgeable. We started with the calamari and diavolo sauce cooked to perfection. All of the entrees come with a salad with their delicious house dressing. My husband had the lobster ravioli and I had one of the specials of the day - linguini with mussels, clams, shrimp and calamari. LARGE portions - we definitely could have shared. The pasta was homemade and sauce flavorful. They were appreciative of our long trek and served us a piece of their excellent cheesecake on the house. We'll definitely return when we return to Vegas next year.
