You would never guess by looking at the outside of this place how incredible it is inside. Not far from the strip and well worth it. Located in a strip mall behind an Arby's it can be easy to miss. I have included a picture of the shopping center sign to help you locate it. They are open for lunch and dinner and you can order food to go. You may sit at the bar area with high top tables or get restaurant seating. We were lucky enough to get a table next to the kitchen. The food was sent as soon as it was done, expediters made sure it got to tables and did not sit. The pictures I have do not do the food justice. The servings are large and there is not a bad thing I can say about the food. My boyfriend ordered Linguine with clams, which comes in your choice of white or red. There is no shortage of clams in this dish. The antipasto is fresh and the house vinaigrette is very good. Fresh made pastas, yummy! The place does not disappoint. It is Italian family cooking at it's best!

I have been a Vegas local for the past 10 years and in that time, Nora's has always been my favorite place for authentic, high quality Italian food. The service is fantastic and the food is amazing. If you live here or are visiting, I highly recommend that you stop by for lunch or dinner. The atmosphere is great, everyone is friendly and the food is AMAZING. You can't go wrong at Nora's!

Don't be fooled by the location (it's in a plaza and there's an Arby's in the parking lot). Nora's has been in business since 1991- a feat for any Vegas restaurant! It has always been family owned and operated and you truly get Italian hospitality here!

Most tourists will keep driving past restaurants in strip malls, and for good reason. It's not often that a restaurant behind a check cashing operation and an Arby's would be worth a second look. Nora's Cuisine is the exception.

The restaurant is small, but friendly. The menu is an assortment of traditional Italian dishes and some unique interpretations of the classics. I ordered the baked ziti and it beat anything coming out of Olive Garden or Macaroni Grill. This is important to note because Nora's is positioned at a price point more like the national chains, but the flavor and quality of ingredients is just better. Nothing tasted canned, jarred or bottled. Service was fast and there was no shortage of diners making their way through the doors. It's worth a visit, particularly if you're on a budget and want to get away from the crowds on the Vegas Strip.

Absolutely the best Italian and huge portions, worth the drive as it is not that far from the Strip. Great staff and real joy.

We went to this restaurant after a recommendation from a friend that is a Las Vegas local. The food and service is outstanding. We ended up at a table in the kitchen area, so we got to see the food being prepared and amazed at how quickly the servers made sure the food got to the table as soon as it was ready. We will definitely go back on our next trip to Vegas.
