“Good Service and Good Food”
Reviewed June 3, 2012

The only drawback was they tried to sit us (4 guests) in a small booth next to the kitchen...wrong answer. However with a simple request to sit in another table they moved us. Why do restaurants try to fill the crappy tables first and leave the better tables unfilled? I find this more and more when I dine out I guess business is just that good that they do not need to please all their customers. As it turns out the restaurant never filled. Just one word STUPID! Regardless the service was good and the food was as expected. Very good Italian priced appropriately for Vegas and the quality of food and service.

“Awesome”
Reviewed June 2, 2012

The food was great (make sure you get the meatballs) and suprisingly is was the least expensive meal we had all week. We also ate at Olives, Voodoo Steakhouse and the Eiffel Tower Restaurant.

Absolutely THE BEST food. Make sure you try the meat balls - like nothing you've tried before.

“Overpriced, underwhelming”
Reviewed May 28, 2012

We ate at 2 Italian restaurants at CP in this last trip; Rao's took 2nd place. Using downtown Chicago's best as reference, food was OK but overpriced, with veal entrees in the $39 to 50 range. Bread basket was OK, but reminiscent of Goldfish cheddar. No olive oil/Parmesan at the table, and it took 2 requests to obtain. Water refills good; wine help good, and service attention generally good at a busy time of the night. Bruschetta, for our taste, was light on basil and Balsamic. House salad was unimaginative and bland. Veal picatta was tender, with lots of capers, but a little light on lemon. WIth $60 bottle of wine, tab was $160.
