The evening started out great. The food was excellent and we truly enjoyed the atmosphere (very vibrant!). But soon after our entrees were delivered, our waitress was assigned to a large party and we didn't see her again until after we had asked for the check from a manager that checked on us. We would have ordered dessert and after dinner drinks but we were a little tored of waiting by then.

Like having dinner inside a club; everyone is dressed to the nines and the music is upbeat. The food is really excellent-- I had one of the best salmon filets in my life, and I've had quite a few. My three companions enjoyed their food as well. Lovely decor; even the bathrooms are beautiful, with a shower head just above the floor-to-waist heigh basins, operated by foot pedal. There's a bathroom attendant with all your cologne and mint needs at the ready. We had a few cocktails to start and they were spot-on. I would go back on my next trip to Las Vegas.

It was awesome and our waiter was very friendly and helpful. Food was good, but they could have a larger selection of sweet wines. Garlic bread was delicious!! Restuarant is beautiful, plus there's a club right upstairs! Definitely will return when I come back to Vegas!

The restaurant seemed as if it had gotten even darker than the last few times I came. I had to use a light to even see the menu. Lavo has been a go to for dinner every time I go to Vegas, which is about 5-6 times a year. The food was very salty and lukewarm. Our calamari was wilted, & our bread hard as a rock. Our waiter was more interested in the young girls two tables away from ours. It took a long time to even get a Pepsi. I'm so disappointed, because I loved Lavo & recommended it to everyone.

Food was amazing! Atmosphere is fantastic! Not a quite place! The only reason I gave 4 stars was because there were 12 of us there on business. The check was well over $1200. We asked the waitress to separate the bills and she wouldn't. Said she could run as many cards as we needed, so we wasted a ton of time trying to figure out 12 different bills. That was not told to us in the beginning. It put a really negative ending to what could've been an awesome night, but people just got aggravated.

Was in Las Vegas on business and dined here as a solo diner. Was not very impressed with many aspects of this restaurant. I arrived a few minutes early, and shortly after the restaurant opened. They proceeded to seat several other groups, including one sitting at the bar that did not even have a reservation. The service after I was seated was very good, but the food not so much. The burrata salad was a variety of cherry tomatoes without any flavor and the cheese had a slightly off taste to it. My filet mignon was slightly tough and also without much flavor. The garlic mashed potatoes had no discernible garlic. There are a lot of better dining options at The Venetian.

We have been to Lavo several time, always for the meatballs! Took some friends from out of town so they could try them. Everyone loved them of course! I also tried the lobster bisque this time which was mind-blowingly excellent.\nMy only negative with Lavo is the noise level. It can be very, very difficult to hold a conversation. It is bad at a table of four, I cannot imagine trying to communicate at a table with a larger party.

It was apparent that the wait staff wanted nothing to do with us when we didn't order alcohol. The service was cold and rushed. We were out of there in 30 minutes. We spent $150 for average pasta and felt like we were in the way. To add insult the restarting was almost empty so their was no need to push us out to flip the table. They couldn't get us out of their fast enough. I won't be going back especially when I want to have a customer.

We visit Vegas several times a year and always eat at Lavo. Unfortunately this time we discovered that they changed the recipe for the red sauce on the infamous spaghetti and meatballs- big mistake!!!'\n\nHoly cow the spaghetti and meatballs were SO salty. We had another couple with us - all of us sent our food back. They remade it and it was the same and we all sent it back again. We had several of the servers tell us that they changed the recipe and added pecorino cheese. We also had several servers tell us they thought it was too salty as well.\n\nExcellent customer service -\nLamar did an excellent job taking care of us.\n\nPlease, change the recipe back!!!'

The food is really good but the atmosphere is both relaxed and fun so you will have a great time in a great setting. In the summer you can also sit outside on the patio which is nice. I would recommend this restaurant for any Vegas trip! The meatball is great - very nice appetizer!

This place has no idea what it wants to be. Which of course would be fine if the food delivers... sadly it does not.\n\nThe atmosphere is kinda dark like a nice Italian steakhouse should be. It's well appointed with a water feature in the lobby, post-modern junk on the walls and hanging from the ceiling. The decor is just fine. But why is there a DJ spinning dance covers of 90's music? I didn't care for Madonna then; the 140bpm version of Holiday w/out words is not any better. And why is there a TV hanging on the wall? Sure ok, maybe it's showing 'art' right? Either music videos or a light show or attractive people dancing? Nope. It's got the football game. Nothing says classy like 90's music and football. Am I going to dinner or a diner?\n\nThe food was inedible. The Wagyu meatball had absolutely no flavor; just a ball of mushy meat. Seriously, steak tar tar sandwiches at a Packers game have more flavor. This thing was like eating damp popcorn without any butter or salt.\n\nThe Mixed Green salad uses some cheap vinaigrette dressing that was probably something excellent during the Carter administration. Lots of char and something like kale, it was very chewy. Chew Chew Chew through the salty sour dressing.\n\nGiving the food's track record thus far, we decided to ask if we could try the bolognese sauce before ordering the dish. The staff was very kind and brought us a sample. It tasted like salty carrots. Pass.\n\nSo we order a chicken parm and veal parm (I had a ribeye the night before and figured the parm would be a safe bet.) Wrong! Yes, it's very nice the way the run it through the press until it's paper thin. Then the breading is thicker than the meat. Sauce from a can and a handful of mozz. It's embarrassing actually.\n\nThis place would be remarkably improved if someone in the kitchen would just go to the local store, walk down the spice aisle, find a bag of McCormick Italian Seasoning, and secretly add to everything.\n\nGo to BuddyV's instead.

We read the mixed reviews for Lavo and wasn't sure what to expect as far as service, but were very Happy from beginning to ending. The hostess was friendly, we were waited on with excellent service from our waiter Fender, the manager even came by the tables and introduced himself. We loved all the food that was served the garlic bread and meatball appetizers were our favorites. We took our 11 yr old and she loved it. The only negative thing was that we sat at a table closer to the kitchen and it was so busy other than that minor detail, we would definitely return! Awesome food & services!

The restaurant was nice but dark. I was expecting a more Italian theme, but it felt a little club-ier (similar to dining at Tao). The waitress was very accommodating and sweet. The main issue was the actual food. The complimentary garlic bread was delicious. We also ordered the burrata salad, which was great as well. I ordered the eggplant parm as my main. It was a huge portion, but disappointing. It was incredibly salty and I could only eat about 1/4 of the dish. My partner ordered the penne seafood pasta; which was also underwhelming. The penne was hard; too al dente, yet the scallops seemed overcooked; hard and dense. Maybe other items would've been better, but these were not great.

My husband and I decided to give Lavo's a second chance last night. What a great decision on our part. Our first time dining at Lavo's was during a concert weekend and the restaurant was extremely crowded and noisy. The wait staff completely overloaded that evening. \n\nLast nights much more positive. Just be like. Look I would love to help you but I really can't get involved, whether Jabe did this or not is to be decided but regardless he is 20 years old and I don't have the time in my life to clean up his messes as I have told his friends Ben and Jon before. I would suggest you file a police report and they can visit him and help you resolve this. As of right now I have no idea how to get ahold of him. The food was exceptional. The service was impeccable. If you love seafood, try the Piccolo platter, it's a tower of crab legs, shrimp, lobster, clams and oysters served with some delicious sauces. The presentation was was picture worthy. \n\nA big thanks to our server Johnny and Francois our maitre d' for making our evening a wonderful dining experience.

I highly recommend reservations. the staff was pleasant, including the the service person in the restroom (be sure to take tip money with you).

Lavo is my go-to restaurant for Italian and steak dishes. I have probably dined here 40 times since they opened. Service is ALWAYS spot on, interior decoration is very comfortable, food is alway outstanding if not perfect. But tonight was an exception. Ordered the Chicken Parmigiana as well as Meatball appetizer. I'm sorry to say, the sodium (salt) level was so over the top, it was literally inedible, and I am quite serious. The server thought it might have been the Parmagean cheese topping, I doubt it. But we sent the chicken back and ordered a ribeye steak which was served up perfectly. Something was jacked up in the kitchen, to have two dishes served up with incredible levels of sodium is out of character for Lavo. I hope it doesn't happen again.

If you can get past the host/hostess issues everything else is great. We have fined here several times and not yet we're we made to feel welcome at checking. \nYou are told your table isn't ready and to have a seat in the lounge but those tables are always 'reserved . Mind you 6 are completely empty and you are not planning to stay long, assuming your table really will be ready shortly. But these hosts/hostesses are vicious in not wanting to accommodate. We get it- IF the very special people who have the reservations arrive we will move along.

Really bad service. After reading good reviews on this place I decided to book a table to have a dinner date with my husband. We were in vegas for my birthday and wanted to eat the best that Las Vegas had to offer. It started out with us being ignored for twenty minutes. I mean just sitting there waiting as the waiter chatted up some other guests at another table. We asked to be moved to a different section and the service was a bit better. We ordered our appetizers and they were great. The food came out and my dish was over salted. My husband order was not right so he asked them to bring out the correct dish and had to wait a long time for them to bring out the correct one.

Reservation was for 7:30pm but wasn't seated until 8:40pm. Staff were indifferent and unapologetic about the wait. I'm all for a fun and vibrant scene but the noise level was rock concert loud. Table conversation was near impossible. Tables were situated extremely close to where we had to coordinate chair movement with the person seated behind. Food was pretty good and not too expensive for The Venetian. Odd quirk on the check... The server brought the detailed ticket and stated I needed to indicate tip and sign the check to acknowledge charges before processing my card. He then processed my card and brought the normal credit card check for me to sign with the tip he had hand-written into the usual spot. Perhaps I don't get out enough and this is common, but it was the first time I had seen this way of processing the check. I found it to be a bit off putting since the server is aware of the tip before running my card.

I was looking forward to a great chicken parmesan at this restaurant. It was the most disappointing restaurant that we went to during our 4-might stay in Vegas. It wasn't terrible, but was certainly not up to par considering the price. The chicken parmesan was just okay. Nothing great like what I was expecting. The worst part of the meal, and the reason for this unenthusiastic review, was the cocktail. We ordered the half pitcher of the pomegranate lemonade for the two of us. When it arrived, the pitcher was full of ice, as were the glasses. We only got about a drink and a half each out of the pitcher, and it was $55. The drinks tasted like crystal light lemonade -- there appeared to be no liquor in them at all. We just felt like it was a total ripoff. We did enjoy the tiramisu, and the waiter was very attentive, so I give them high marks for that. But the chicken dish and especially cocktail were disappointing, so I really can't highly recommend this restaurant.

Not worth the money! I have enjoyed many fine dining experiences over the past 10 years along the Las Vegas strip and this was by far the worst. The evening started good as my mom and I where greeted by two very friendly hosts at the entrance. Our reservation was confirmed and we where seated within two minutes. Unfortunately we got a table where one of us was sitting on the couch facing the restaurant and the other party across facing the back wall. This was very disappointing and irritating as the space between the tables is extremely limited. Whenever the server was attending to the neighboring tables his behind was right in my space and made me feel very uncomfortable. My mom and I both had a lobster soup as entree. She went with a steak as main dish and I decided to try the whole lobster. We added brussel sprouts, spinach and mash potatoes. The lobster soup was served about 4 minutes after we placed the order and was ice cold. I made the server aware after waiting to see him again for about 10 minutes. It took a while until we got our appetizers served hot directly at our table, completely different at the first time around. The taste was unidentifiable and if it would not have been for the four small pieces of lobster I would have not known what it was suppose to be. We where hoping for the main course to make up for it. Unfortunately for us in the mean time had a group of six people been seated right next to us which where extremely loud and displayed a inappropriate behavior for the venue the Lavo wants to be but none of the servers seemed to be bothered by the noise level coming from that table. When we got the main dish we where already fed up with our experience and neither the lobster nor my moms steak could make up for it. The lobster was absolutely blend, the steak extremely spicy and the brussel sprouts burned to the point where we couldn't eat them. Overall neither the food nor the service or the visiting crowd where worth the money.

We tried Lavo as part of Restaurant week and it was amazing!

Caesar salad was crisp and fresh. The desserts are HUGE to say the least and freshly made! Strawberry shortcake was about 6 inches tall and the tiramisu was absolutely delicious!

We went to diner at Lavo for a bachelorette party. We heard so many great things about this restaurant and how it was perfect for a bach party. We are from New Orleans and had made a reservation. When we got to the restaurant we informed the hostess again that we were here for a bachelorette party. The hostess was nothing but rude and responded 'Yes we are aware already'. We were then seated and the waitress started off great. After we ordered we hardly heard or saw of her again. We were hardly attended to from then on. We were never asked if we would like to order another round of drinks and we also asked if she could take a picture which was never done. 4 of us out of the 7 ordered steaks which came out burnt and over cooked. The creamed spinach was not good either. But we still just tried to have a good experience. Nothing was ever acknowledged about it being a bachelorette. Everyone who recommended the restaurant informed us that it was very lively and people danced on tables and spanked the brides. We were looking forward to this dinner more than anything and were sadly dissapointed. I would not recommend this restaurant to anyone. It turned out to be the least liked restaurant out of all the ones we ate at and we were very dissapointed. Even the bride was dissapointed in the food and the overall experience.

Cheese was a little salty, but other than that, it was impeccable and amongst the best I've ever had.\n\nLavo was pretty quiet at the hour I arrived. It was starting to clear out approximately 1-1.5 hours before closing. I opted to sit at the bar. I was quickly greeted by a friendly bartender. He then disappeared for the night. The remainder of my time was spent with a bartender who was a youngster who was more concerned about talking to another customer who was a wacked out 60+ year old self-proclaimed social media queen. In the interim, I could have choked to death, fallen off my barstool, been hit by a stray bullet or anything else and don't think he would have noticed based on the interview that he was evidently scheduled for with her. One lovely young lady from the other end of the bar eventually helped me as she saw I was getting no attention, although it was impossible for her to practically service me from where she was working with a number of others. This was disappointing to say the least.\n\nEvery aspect of this place is amazing. Every organization is only as strong as their weakest employee. In this case their bartender screwed up what was otherwise a first class A+ dining experience (ont including the lady who should have been denied entrance who sat next to me and evidently will be a celebrity someday because of her internet guru status).\n\nWill be back, but won't make the mistake of sitting at the bar again!

Like other reviewers, we had a 40 minute wait for our table.'It will just be a few minutes.' After we complained, we got 2 comp drinks (nice), but had to stand because the bar and waiting seats at the door were full. Reminded me of airline overbooking practices. The wine list was mediocre and overpriced. My chicken marsala was way overcooked (shoe leather), so had to send it back for a redo, meanwhile my companion finished their mushy overcooked pasta dinner.

This is my third, and likely final, visit. The place is inarguably in a great setting and looks beautiful. But that alone is not enough. The food must CONSISTENTLY match the ambiance and level of service. First, putting cheese in and on everything does not automatically make a dish 'Italian'. Next, Lavo's expediter needs to do a much better job of making sure food is top notch and fit to be served; that hasn't been the case on the most recent two visits. Having a good chef listed on the menu needs to be matched with the food actually being prepared and served. So, two times ago, the pasta was comped because it was, simply, terrible. This most recent time, both of our Milanese cutlets were overcooked (and overcheesed). Admittedly, the served asked my guest if he could bring something else out and unfortunately, my guest said no. Also unfortunately, the server did not offer even a coffle as a gesture to make up a little bit for the meal that was left quite visibly uneaten. I left a very good tip as usual anyway but made the decision to not return. There are simply many better and just as beautiful Italian restaurants in Las Vegas. You listening, Lavo management?

We were a party of three on a Sunday night, and the place was half full at 7pm, maybe not the best sign. We ordered the seafood tower and three entrees, plus a bottle of wine. $325 plus tip, so a nice sized ticket. \n\nThe Tower was great, although it could have had a few more oysters and clams for the price. The wine was good, as expected, but then it went downhill. Two of the three entrees were not very good, the chicken marsala was way far on the sweet side (my wife said it tasted more maple syrup than marsala) and the veal milanese was so salty I was challenged to eat only half. Seafood pasta Diavola was declared delicious by my friend. \n\nThe service was a bit inattentive, and at the end of the meal was actually dismissive. 'Here's the check, sign here first and then I''ll run your card'...fifteen minutes later. I have never heard that request in 30 years of dining in Vegas. We also were not thanked for dining, choosing, eating there, etc. \n\nWe go to LV 3-4 times a year, and will not return here. There are so many better Italian options to frequent.

What can I say...I love this place and couldn't wait to take friends to enjoy it. I told the waiter straight out that I wanted dessert before even ordering dinner. So he brought the dessert menu and I planned ahead for the 7 layer cake. I had it for the first time several years back and it's a must when I come to Vegas. Then, our waiter happened. Everything was super slow. I asked for a side of marinara sauce with my zucchini, which I am still waiting for. I was never offered any cheese with my pasta and had to flag down another waitress to get me some. We finished dinner and sat there in front of our dirty dishes waiting and waiting. Almost 20 minutes later someone finally came to clear our table. By now, we needed to leave to go see our show and there was no time for dessert, even if the waiter had bothered to offer, which he didn't. I am super disappointed. The food we had was good but the service was incredibly poor. Three hours should be enough time for dinner, especially when you start dinner at 5:30! The only reason I wanted to go there was for that dessert and I made that point to the waiter upon sitting down to dinner. So bottom line is, don't go here if you have anything to do for the rest of the night and don't expect the service to be on par with the pricing. It was certainly a let down tonight.

We the split the meatball appetizer which was out of this world. The Chilean Sea Bass on the other hand was quite fishy and unimpressive. Even though I ate a large part of it, they took it back and took it off the bill without me so much as asking. I declined having a replacement and instead finished the rest of the meatball. I don't often return to Vegas restaurants but the service here will bring me back - and I will be having the meatballs for an entree'!

Lavo is a hip spot at the Venetian which has a vibrant bar scene. The food itself wasn't jaw dropping or that unique as far as Italian restaurant options in Vegas are concerned. The calamari was average and the portion was large. The Agnolotti was freshly prepared but not as good at the Truffle gnocchi. The tomato salad w/Burrata would have been better with sliced tomatoes.

Have been there before and really liked it, but could not say the same thing when I visited this time. Had a veal dish and it was not particularly tender and a bit overdone. It was also cold and when the manager came by and asked how our food was, I did tell him that. Based on the fact that we were starving, I was not willing to wait for another meal to be prepared but I do think we should have at least been offered coffee or something because we were not that happy with the food. I would recommend sticking with pasta if you go there. Also, the meatball they offer is now $25 which is ridiculous. I did have it the last time I was there and I think it was $15. That was only a year ago.

From the bartender serving us drinks while we waited (only a short time) for our table, to the entire staff, everyone was on their game! Food was excellent! As previous reviewers raved about the meatball, I had to try it. And now, I too am raving about it. Usually I finish everything in front of me. The portions at Lavo were huge. I could only eat 1/2 of the meatball, and 1/2 of my chicken parm. My date could only finish 1/2 of her ravioli.\r\nDefinitely will go back, and highly recommend everyone who has not been there to go!

Really enjoyed Lavo for a nice dinner with friends. There were 8 of us and our server was so accommodating! When we asked if we could do separate checks by couple, she happily obliged since we asked her up front and had time to get organized. She was super friendly, fun, and efficient... unfortunately I can't remember her name! We split 2 of the 1 lb. meatballs as appetizers amongst the 8 of us which was MORE than enough... I split a spicy lobster bisque with my SO which was tasty and rich but not spicy at all and the tarragon biscotti did not work with the dish at all - it tasted like a shortbread cookie. I had the penne vodka which was very good and a huge portion. Make sure to check-in on Yelp when you're here (and tell your server) to get the amazing deep fried Oreos and ice cream!

This was our first visit to Lavo and the outside dining area is gorgeous - with or without an umbrella the area is clean, sunny and has a great view of the area below. We came for brunch advertised as having bottomless boozy drinks including mimosas or sangria that you could mix and match. The first thing we were told is they may not have the sangria; then when we saw the table next to us getting a pitcher of it, that was retracted. Our server then brought us a pitcher even though not all of us wanted the sangria - - it had way too much of it but we were never offered anything else and those at the table who didn't want the sangria were somehow never able to get the mimosas. Our server was loud and seemed to be friends with the table sitting behind us - he spent lots of time there telling jokes and talking about 'his girl'. It took us a while to be able to order; we never got to order other drinks as mentioned above and it was super hard to pay - we finally had to have someone get our check for us. Although he was nice when he was at our table the lack of service was super irritating for the high prices we paid. Food was good - the Louie salad was super fresh and scallops a vinaigrette dressing instead of the normal Louie dressing; Blueberry pancakes were warm and covered with tart blueberries; the bagels and lox were okay - the bagels were obviously made in-house and were super dough-y; the giant meatball was the best thing we had - covered with a rich and savory meat sauce; finally the mac & cheese was super bland - it pretty much tasted like nothing. All in all not a bad place - with better service it would have been very, very good.

Came here as part of our five year wedding anniversary celebration in Vegas. We decided on Lavo since the Venetian gave us $100 resort credit. Thank god this meal was free because I would have been pretty upset if we had to pay for it. In short, the waiter was initially very friendly and congratulated us on our anniversary. However, once we declined cocktails because we were still feeling the drinks from the night before, his entire demeanor changed. He went from friendly and semi-attentive to non-existent. What if I was a recovering alcoholic? A Mormon? Kind of rude to treat people differently because they aren't in the mood for a $20 cocktail. I was willing to overlook the service if the food was able to make up for it, but it didn't. The burrata was tasty, but the rigatoni melanzane was completely devoid of any and all eggplant. I actually think they forgot to put eggplant into the dish. Literally just pasta, cheese and sauce. Disappointing. Again, would have been very, very upset if I had to spend my own money on this meal. You would think the Italian restaurant in the Italian hotel would be able to knock it out of the park, but sadly it did not. ALSO, they had a cute little photo booth thing at the front where we snapped some photos and put in my e-mail address to get the photos electronically. Nope, never received them. I was pretty disappointed about that because the photos we took were actually pretty cute. Oh well. You win some, you lose some - that's Vegas!

We always eat here when we come to Vegas and we come often we always make reservations on open table and we had one but they took us back 35 minutes past our time they we taken walk ins and we had to keep going up to the host to finally get seated. The food is great but the noise level was awful that night. To not get seated and wait 35 minutes is ridiculous. And for the host to act annoyed for us to keep asking was even more annoying.

I am now a believer of their giant meatball. It's a pound of wagu beef, perfectly seasoned, and moist. I had it as an entree, but next time would split it with 2-3 friends, as it no kidding is a pound. I had the version with salad and garlic crustini, which interestingly comes out with the meatball on top of the salad greens and piece of toast. Still yummy! Skip the spicy lobster bisque for $14 as an appetizer.

We went to Lavo for a 10:30PM reservation to have a business dinner with a group of employees who some were meeting for the first time. The tall ceiling along with a packed restaurant made for a very loud setting so it was hard to hear others at each end of the table. The food was great from the chicken parm to the sea bass and our server was excellent. Great place for smaller groups that are looking for fun and good food. Probably wasn't the best pick for our party of 7 trying to also do some business talk.

The restaurant is beautiful as most Vegas restaurants, dim lighting, a little too loud in the background music, but overall a nice place. The food sounded a lot better on the menu than it really tasted. I had the chicken/mushroom ravioli which wasn't to flavorful. My husbands Chilean sea bass was pretty good. The side of asparagus was too citrusy tasting - but the clams/mussels appetizer and the carpaccio were very good. A little salty, but edible. Our tiramisu dessert was good. Sal, our server was EXCELLENT and very accommodating. He was really on top of things. Thank you, Sal!

This restaurant was recommended to me. I decided to try it. The restaurant is beautiful. Our server was very nice. We ordered the meatball. It was tasty but way to salty. I wanted the chicken parm and the waitress kept trying to get me to change my mind. She kept saying there are much nicer items to order. My favorite is chicken parm so I ordered it anyways. It was awful. It was so flat it looked like a crepe and the level of salt was terrible. I ordered a side of spaghetti and the same thing the sauce was so salty I couldn't eat it. When the waitress came by to ask how our food was I said you were so right to advise me not to order it. At that point what could she say. I told her it was alright she did try to warn me. I am now warning people wanting to go don't go. My husband had another pasta dish it was the same and very dry. I was really disappointed with my experience. Also, its a nice looking Italian restaurant you would think they would play appropriate music. No they have loud techno music pounding away. Didn't fit the decor or the vibe of the restaurant.

Have been to Lavo many, many times and have never been disappointed. If fact, I would say it is probably our favorite restaurant in Las Vegas. The setting inside is very comfortable with warm earth tone colors and a real joy to hangout. The menu is Italian based, but have fabulous steaks and fresh sea foods items that does NOT make this your everyday Italian restaurant, at all! I have experienced nothing but outstanding food and outstanding service at Lavo. As long as the DJ keeps the electronic music upstairs for their club regulated to where it does not encroach into the dining room, we are good. On this visit, my wife ordered the Sea Bass. When served, it was topped with chives (not mentioned in the menu) which my wife is allergic to. We advised our server who informed the manager. The manager was a prince, he took the plate and said, 'No problem, we'll make you a fresh plate.' Moments later a new plate returned without the chives, excellent fish, fresh and buttery. I had the Chicken Parmigiana, one of the best I've had. Be it steak, pasta, chicken or seafood, you will love it.

Overall experience was fabulous, from our server, to the decor, to the food and cocktails. I would like to mention though, a few upsets during our first visit there as we were on vacation. First, while waiting for our table and other friends to arrive, we sat in area that was supposed to be served by cocktail waitresses. However, after sitting in 2 different areas of that front portion of the restaurant as well as waiting 10 minutes for a server, my boyfriend elected to get drinks from the bar instead so that was a bit disappointing. Second, there was a DJ in the dining area, which was cool, but it was a bit loud so it was hard to carry on a relaxing and fun conversation with one another at the table without having to raise your voice or ask the person to repeat what they said because you couldn't hear them. Lastly, the cushion portion of the table/booth was positioned too low. While looking at other couple across the table seated in the chairs, it was evident they were higher up and it was an awkward feeling to not be at eye level with them the entire time.

We ate brunch at LAVO when we were in Vegas, and the food was pretty good. Pricey, but you'll get that anywhere in Vegas. However, I would not recommend the coffee here -- it pretty much just tasted like water. Also, the service was just so-so. Outdoor dining looked nice, but we were told it would be a 10 minute wait for a table outside, so we chose to sit inside because the hostess said she could set us up at a table right near the windows so that we could still get fresh air. We had to wait 5 minutes for that table, and it turned out they'd sat us right in the middle of the restaurant nowhere near a window, despite the place being practically empty. For the money, there are probably better brunch places in Vegas.

Lavo is one of the best restaurants on the strip! The food is amazing, the views are fantastic, the atmosphere is energetic and the service is impeccable! \n\nThe obvious strength of this Italian restaurant is the food which is all freshly made and incredibly tasty. The chicken was packed with flavor and not dry at all which is an accomplishment in itself. The fish was very tender and seasoned perfectly as to taste the fish and not just seasoning. Lavo's 'claim to fame' is their one pound meatball which is incredibly good. The texture is perfect, not to soft and not too dry and packed full of flavor but too be honest there was a bit too much garlic for my taste. Garlic lovers will truly embrace this appetizer. One word of advice, the plates are large and if you are getting a meatball, share with a friend or friends, unless you are a heavy eater. \n\nThe atmosphere exemplifies the high end, sheik lifestyle with dark, hip tones and high end, modern furnishing. Plenty of shark skin suits and 5 inch pumps roaming around this upscale establishment. The only thing missing is the condescending attitude as most of the staff, including the host are very friendly and professional. \n\nThe patio probably has one of the best views on the strip and is a perfect place to watch life on the strip....that is if it's not 110 degrees outside. Otherwise, the air conditions works perfectly!\n\nLavo has become a staple which we visit whenever in Vegas. Since it's inception, the restaurant has not diminished in quality and continues to be one of the BEST!

The food was divine, we tried several courses and I was impressed by each and every plate. The staff was also very friendly and accommodating. We sat on the terrace outside and it was lovely. Great view, fantastic ambiance both inside and out. This place creates a perfect, warm and stunning fine-dining experience.

The restaurant was highly recommended to us. Everything started going wrong once the waiter showed up at our table. He was not knowledgeable with the menu and never told us about their specials until we asked, after he asked if we're ready to order. This server paid no attention to our table of 6 during our meal and the restaurant was not even 25% filled. We had 2 bottles of wine for the table and the server never refilled our glasses, ( we poured our own). Our server was terrible!

We were seated at a long bench seat with a table crowded next to others on both sides. There was no intimacy or privacy at all and the table was very small. The steak was only okay. The asparagus was very large with no flavor and the spinach had no flavor whatsoever. The wine must have been marked up 8X and was $82 for a $10 bottle of wine. This was about $250 to eat there. Very dissapointed and will never go back. I have already spread the word about the poor experience to friends and family.

Their signature meatball is enormous! It's enough for 3 or 4 people as an appetizer. We were unable to finish it. I would have preferred a few smaller meatballs, but it was delicious nonetheless. So was the tuna tatare appetizer. I enjoyed the semolina gnocchi, a unique twist on the usual. It was a lot lighter and less filling than a traditional gnocchi. But the best part was dessert! They have created a very unusual concoction called Oreo Zeppole. Basically it's a combination of a zeppole and oreo crumbs which have been deep fried, but not heavy or greasy. Then you dip these creations into a vanilla milkshake. Every member of the waitstaff couldn't say enough about it. There are 6 to a plate, but they are so rich we could only get through 4 ;-) A real treat!! The cocktails are also fun and creative and are well worth investigating. The cucumber mojito is very refreshing when it's 105 outside.

Last March we were at Lavo and did not have the greatest experience that evening. I sent in a review on Open Table expressing my disappointment since we love their food and had always enjoyed it in the past. Shortly after the review posted I received a very nice response from one of the Managers. Francis was very apologetic and asked us to give them another opportunity next time we were in town. This last weekend we were staying at the Palazzo and decided to try Lavo's again. I asked a gentleman who was helping us if Francis was working and that was actually who was standing there. I told him about our earlier communication and he remembered everything about it. The experience we had was FABULOUS! We had an army of staff who were all very attentive and professional. The food was GREAT and the wine as well. Lavo has made a fan out of me once again. When in Vegas I highly recommend you have dinner at Lavo. Don't miss the Kobe meatball appetizer. \nThanks Francis

The weather was perfect, so it was great to be seated adjacent the Strip. Tons of waiters running about, so the service was great. The crusted salmon was very good, as was the softball sized meatball appetizer. The bone in filet arrived overcooked by a mile, and had to wait quite a while for it, and its replacement. Definitely not the best filet I've had in Vegas, and wasn't worth the $47 price tag. The waiter did get me a complimentary cocktail, however. The bernaise sauce was an upcharge, and it wasn't very good at all, way too tart. The creamed spinach wasn't finely chopped, so you had large spinach leaves with a crust of cheese on top of it. Definitely stay away from that, especially for $17.

I've been a regular diner at Lavo for years and I have always experienced wonderful service, wine, the meatball appetizer (5 stars) and food. So WHAT CHANGED? Apparently the service and the quality of the food. The wine selection and the meatball is still 5 stars. We arrived on time for a 7:30pm reservation whereby the restaurant was not very busy with several available tables inside and outside. We elected to dine outside for which we were told it would be a few minutes wait... 1h 40m later and 1 bottle of Prisoner consumed, we were seated. The waiter was inattentive and acted if he was doing us a favor for being at the restaurant. Furthermore, 2 of the 3 meals were uneatable. I'm not sure if the chef has become a SALTaholic or is incapable of determining the difference between 1/8 tsp of salt vs 1 tbsp of salt... We sent one meal back and one meal was challenged by 3 bites... Oddly, the 3rd meal was prepared perfectly. To add insult to gastronomic injury - the restaurant cancelled my OPENTABLE reservation 2x whilst we were attempting to choke down the initial bites of the poor presentation of food. Suffice it to say - Lavo is now restauranta-non-grata...

This restaurant should just focus on being a night club and forget trying to be a restaurant. I could go on in length over the disappointments on more than one occasion, but this was my last time of being disappointed here. First we took the waiters suggestions; Lobster Bisque as an appetizer followed 'Great' dishes, Chilean Sea Bass and Chicken Marsala as. \r\n\r\nStarting with the bisque. Waiter dropped it off and disappeared, waited 3 to 5 minutes to track down another waiter to ask for 2 spoons, tough to eat bisque with a fork and knife. He came back after rumaging thru the station and told us he could only find one spoon. 3/5 minutes later returning with the elusive spoon. Bisque was OK. I liked it, my wife thought it was terrible.\r\n\r\nMain course came and was less than you would expect as a visual. The disappointment with he presentation was nothing when compared to the taste, or lack there of. The sea bass would have been prepared much better at Long John Silvers. Absolutely no taste, bland at the very best. My wife did say at least they had browned (a little crispy) the fish on one side. The reduction sauce that drowned my Chicken Marsala was terrible. Over powered the chicken. We each ate about 1/3 of our meals. A different waiter came back to ask if we wanted desert, we sad no and he brought the check. It was Valentine's Day, so perhaps too busy to ask if we enjoyed our meal, or he knew what we were going to say.\r\n\r\nAs I left I cancelled another reservation I had for 5 people on Feb. 16th. The hostess said no problem took the cancellation....I waited... no question as to why I was cancelling after I had just eaten there. \r\nI have eaten here at least a dozen times and it has gone down hill over the last 2 / 3 years overtime I have been there. I will not be back, except to maybe go to the club with clients in the future. Never to eat.

It is primarily Italuan but also has steaks and other fine dining dinners. We opted for steaks but should have stuck to Italian. Apparently they don't have the cooking down since a Medium well NY strip came out completely charred and a medium rare ribeye was rare. They remedied the ribeye but couldn't do anything about the NY strip. Wish I had taken a pic, but had to cut off edges and top, about half of it. Sides were ok, but the 'roasted' potatoes were anything but and not fully cooked. They were nice enough to take those off the bill. Bread with marinara is amazing. \nWe sat on the patio, very nice, but didn't like the staff meeting that happened about 1 table over (sat down at 7p). I understand if you're not busy but there are other places to congregate and complain. \nWe've tried several restaurants in Vegas and some we will revisit, this one we won't.

I had a reservation at Lavo on a Sunday evening for 4 people at 9:30 pm. My group and I arrived 30 minutes early due to the fact that we came from another event with the hopes that they would have something available a little early. I was told they needed 'a few minutes.' Well, once the 9:30 reservation time came and went, I asked the hostess and was told they were running behind a few minutes but that we were the next 4 top on the list. That was not true. We watched FIVE more parties of 4 get seated before us. We would have left but by that time, we were so hungry that we didn't want to go to another restaurant and wait another hour to eat. After my friend went back up to the hostess stand and complained pretty loudly, we were finally seated. Trying to make the best of it, we sat down but were pretty uncomfortable. They have so many tables crowded into the dining room that you literally had to ask other patrons at surrounding tables to scoot in so you could get up. \n\nThe food was decent. Average Italian food, nothing spectacular. We did ask for a second (tiny) loaf of bread and were told it was an extra charge and only the first loaf is complimentary. Considering we purchased a $70 bottle of wine and they were charging $30 for spaghetti and meatballs, I think they could have given us another loaf of bread for free!\n\nSo many great places to dine in Vegas and this one is NOT on that list. I won't be going back.

I loved everything about Lavo! Our server was very knowledgeable about the menu and made fantastic recommendations. At his suggestion, I ordered the The Meatball with whipped ricotta and spaghetti - it was phenomenal! He also recommended the perfect, refreshing summer drink - Bubbles and Berries! Absolutely delicious. We sat on the patio and watched the sun go down and the lights come up on the strip. The whole evening was very memorable and I would definitely recommend dining there!!

We went two nights in a row. First night was fab food great, service amazing, good vibe inside. \n\nSecond night there was a convention party. Waited 35 mins for the table I had already reserved. People allowed to jump the queue because they complained even though they didn't book. My steak was inedible it was sent out raw. Couldn't speak over the table due to rowdy drunk convention people. The food was not up to the previous nights standard. \n\nWe did speak to the manager who recompensed us. \n\nI would visit again if I was sure there was no special events on.

Overall, my experience was great! I continue to patronize this location due to it's food, wine/drink selection, and service. The reasons for the lack of 'Outstanding' ratings in all categories are: 1) often times too noisy to have enjoyable conversation with my colleagues/friends, and 2) in appropriate behavior by both patrons and a server - birthday celebrants were spanked by their server which my fellow patrons and I found both unprofessional an inappropriate, as some of the patrons were wearing clothing that revealed under garments and 'skin'.

Like so many trendy restaurants in Las Vegas, Lavo has become a place that only wants to cater to the High Rollers. I guess the tips are better. My wife, daughter and I just wanted an early dinner without all the frills such as gigantic appitizers. Just a quiet dinner. We got the cold shoulder when we indicated that was out intention.

The ambiance and the servers were great! However, the wait to actually be seated was ridiculous! We had a party of four with a reservation for 8:30 and didn't not get seated until 9:50pm! Also the table that we were seated was in a corner in a really tight space next to a cupboard where the servers frequently went in and out of. While doing so, they often hit the back of one of my guests' chairs. That was super annoying. Other than that, the food was just ok, the ambiance was beautiful, the waiters and hosts were super nice, and it seemed like a very popular spot. I probably will not return to this establishment mainly because of the wait tie even though we had a reservation.

Unfortunately, we started the experience off in a bad way - we had reservations and they were unable to seat us until an hour later. I realize it is hard to predict when people will finish a meal, but the hostess was not gracious when we would ask for an update. When we were taken to our table it wasn't cleared and it was in a cramped corner. The food was decent, but nothing to get excited about. Due to the underwhelming service we received I don't think I would recommend this restaurant to others because there are so many other restaurants in Las Vegas worth visiting. This might have been an isolated incident and if so, I'm sure you would have a fun time here.

Best thing about Lavo is the ambiance. Second is the food - but not everything on the menu. You have to ask for bread on the table, and it took about 15 minutes to get it. Salads are good, and shareable for two. Spaghetti carbonera is done really well. Crispy chicken on potatoes was so-so; the flavor was there, but the chicken was a bit tough and chewy, not fall-off-the-bone tender. Drinks were also hit or miss. I asked the waiter if the bartender knew how to make a 'Penicillin', to which he replied yes. What I got was a whiskey sour. And though service was attentive the first 1/2 of our time there, we spent about 20 minutes waiting for a check-in, and our check itself. Water staff was very attentive. Ambiance is great for a date night or group, with great upbeat background music playing at just the right volume. Just wish the food was more memorable.

This is the second time I've been to Lavo in a few years. The food was less memorable this time. Additionally, I felt that this time around, we were dining in restaurant designed to rip off the patrons by driving the bill up as high as possible. Everything was a high pressure sales pitch.\n\nOur sever, Johnny L, was very pushy and borderline rude. The meal started out with, 'Can I interest you in carbonated water, flat water, or something else?' Buyer beware, flat water is not tap water. It's $8 glass. First hidden charge.\n\nThen, as our group was deliberating on a bottle of wine vs. glass, the server just said, 'I'll grab you a bottle and rushed away from the table.'\n\nReally pushed appetizers on us and dessert as well.\n\nJust didn't feel like a relaxing meal. Felt like you were in Vegas and were trying to be taken advantage of at every turn.

Lavo has not only the best Italian food I've had in Vegas but probably ever. Location is incredibly convenient out-of-the-cab and into-a-seat. Easily accessible for those who can't get around without a cane or scooter. Sea Bass is best we've ever had, as is the Spaghetti Carbonara... but the deep fried Orio desert is positively sinful. I could have just ordered six of those and given it a five-star rating. And the staff was approachable, knowledgable and friendly. Thank you!

Lavo came with more than one strong recommendation, so our group of four was keen to dine there. The service however, was some of the worst we had all collectively experienced. On more than one occasion, our servers were removing items from our table with our fingers or forks still lifting food off the plate. For a restaurant billed as fine dining (and prices to match), one expects a level of dining experience. We felt rushed (dinner for four took less than 1.25 hours which included two bottles of wine and first and second courses) and terribly disappointed.

I took four clients here for a business dinner. The food was mixed - salmon and sea bass were good, but people who ordered the other dishes just stirred them around and ate very little, saying it was 'ok' (I was the host and they didn't want to insult my choice). Two people ordered desserts, the tiramisu and the strawberry shortcake. The tiramisu was mostly a big bowl of bland, thick cream with some sort of brown syrup drizzled through. The 'strawberry' shortcake consisted of three layers of another bland, thick whipped cream layered between stale shortcake slices, with a tiny amount of red syrup drizzled. The entire plate came with ONE strawberry on the side, and another quarter strawberry tucked between two of the layers. \n\nNeither person who ordered desserts ate more than a bite or two, so we passed them around the table. All five us us tasted both desserts, and nobody was interested in a second bite of either.\n\nOur waiter was fine taking orders and bringing the check, but he was so 'fake' (insincere, unnatural - searching for the right term) that we all joked about it during the meal and afterwards.

I've had better Italian food in Mexican restaurants. The price is fine if the food was close to being authentic. I had the Chicken Marsala that didn't even taste or resemble traditional Marsala dishes. It came out looking like black oil poured over chicken patties. My wife had shrimp in a spicy tomato sauce that tasted like it came out of a can. Garlic bread was hard and could have been used to build the foundation of a building. The service was average, no one went the extra distance - not what I would have expected at a Palazzo location. We were sat right next to a bachelor party of 20plus by a host who could care less that we were on a date and the entire restaurant had more than half of its tables open. The staff was so focused on the one table that we were an afterthought until the table cleared out, not the type of service you would expect from a reaturant of this caliber. So it gets an average rating for an average meal by average folks at an above average location with above average prices.

This restaurant is amazing. Our waiter was extremely accommodating, always offering drink refills etc. The food was fantastic, great value and delivered on time. The only two downpoints were the seating and the noise. The noise issue unfortunately seems to be an issue at most restaurants in Vegas. There is moderately loud music playing in the background, but the main reason that you have to raise your voice to speak to others is the fact that the tables are extremely close together, trying to squeeze in as many customers as possible, which made it a bit uncomfortable when trying to have a personal conversation with the person you are dining with. Other than that, if you are looking for amazing food and amazing value it is an excellent restaurant!

The meatball appetizer had been recommended to us and it didn't disappoint. We also enjoyed the lobster bisque and sea bass. Both excellent.

Took girlfriend and mother out for Valentines dinner. Lavo is one of the few restaurants that takes reservations very late (up to midnight?). We all ordered the Chilean Sea bass. I don't eat this too often, but my GF does and felt it was overcooked and flaky. The last few times we have gone here the food has been below expectations set by our earlier visits. Often the noise inside can be so loud that a conversation takes work, so we usually try to sit outside. However it got too cold/windy outside so we moved inside. This visit did not have that noise issue inside. Love their Garlic Bread & Marinara sauce. Mixed feelings about returning as their are innumerable dining options on the Strip.

Decided on this restaurant because of close location to the Wynn Theater. We knew from other reviews that there was a driving beat of background noise. My hearing is shot but I was able to get along ok. Eventually they changed up the music. In my reservation I noted that this occasion was an anniversary and requested a quiet table.\r\nThe place was very busy because of Valentines Day. Seating was tight (a long row of tables for two spaced a few feet apart). Again, we understood that this would not be an overly romantic venue.\r\nThe food was very good and the waiters were very attentive. When my wife's dinner arrived not as ordered, they promptly returned the plate back to the kitchen and made corrections that were very satisfactory. Without us asking they comped us for her meal on the final bill, which was very generous.\r\nThe elements that make this restaurant highly recommended are the dedicated wait staff combined with great food.

We dined on Valentine's Day. Service was terrible! We had a 745 reservation but waited over half an hour to get seated. Although the restaurant was beautiful inside, we chose to eat on the balcony due to the extreme noise level because of the live DJ music. The view from the balcony was of the strip and very pretty. Our waitress, I believe her name was Andrea common seem to be very forgetful. She told several times that the bread will be coming, But then what disappear and still no bread. After eating a salad, we waited quite a while before the entrée finally showed up. I had a bone in filet which was very good and tender, my wife had a petite fillet, but was quite tough for being filet mignon. The best part of the meal was the side order of zucchini shoe strings. We shared this, but it could easily be a side for 4 adults to share! Once our entree was served, our waitress seemed to disappear for some time. When she reappeared, she stopped by the table next to us and chatted with them for about 15 minutes while we waited for the check. Don't think we will be returning.

Lavo had the perfect vibe. It's beautiful, nicer, romantic but not too fancy. It was also reasonably priced, especially for how good the food was! As everyone said, the meatball is delicious. The pasta carbonara was also so yummy. The drinks were delicious too and priced similarly to typical Vegas prices. I would definitely go again.

Service very poor, 20 mins sat at table before water or drinks were offered. Food arrived (meatballs with spaghetti and chicken masala) and was mediocre at best.

Table of 4 adults... fish was pretty bland... very little flavor. The brussel sprouts & coffee/cappuccino were delicious, but the rest of the food (pasta/sea bass/steak) were just ok... nothing special. The Merlot we ordered wasn't inexpensive ($70) and it was served warm. Since my customer ordered/approved it, I didn't say anything, but I only drank a couple sips because of it. Definitely didn't feel like a $400 dinner, but our server was great.

The service was good but we were surprised about the food. We had a table of 6 on 1/18/16 for a business dinner. Our waiter suggested the Seafood Alfredo, the sauce was very good but the lack of seafood was a real drag. There was 4 or 5 shrimp but 1 or 2 pieces of lobster and or scallops. I would have thought for $33 it would have had more seafood. The other dishes at the table were OK, not what we would call great. Just my 2 cents but I travel all over the country and eat out quite a bit and for the price level I would not return to Lavo.

First time going to Lavo and ended up having dinner and brunch within a few days. The best was the Lavo signature meatball!!! It's out of t his world and great to share since it might be the largest meatball I've ever seen! I had the salmon, grilled which was excellent and good size portion. They actually will adjust to your dietary needs which is nice. Service was great, friendly and with a smile. Prices are reasonable given it's Vegas.\nHad brunch there - mimosas and the Lobster eggs benedict was good, the hollandaise sauce was interesting as they used champagne in it. Might have been better with it normal, portions are huge here.

I have eaten here many times over the last few years. We visit Las Vegas several times a year.\nThe food is always good, but unfortunately, the quality of service has steadily declined.\nI feel that Lavo has just gotten too comfortable with knowing people will come so they no longer need to try to keep you happy and comfortable.\n\nWe were early for a 7:15 reservation on a Saturday night. The restaurant was 90% empty at this time.\nRather than being seated in the more comfortable dining area, we were seated at an uncomfortable table closer to the bar. Very noisy. I asked to be moved, and was told I would have to go back and stand in the line again to be reseated. Really? This is just not acceptable.\n\nThe waiter was nice enough, but barely came back to see if we needed anything.\nThe most annoying thing was every couple of minutes someone was there trying to remove our plates--even though we were still clearly eating.\n\nLas Vegas is full of many outstanding restaurants, where we not only get excellent food but also great service and hospitality. Lavo no longer fits this bill.\nThis was my last time dining here.

while the meatballs are excellent, i mean really excellent, the other courses and the wine and the general ambiance of the restaurant were fantastic. We came with a group and were all seated outside which had a great view of the activities going on down below. i would note that they do not seat you unless everyone has arrived, and even then it takes a bit of time, so get there with everyone early!

This was our second visit to Lavo and it was just as amazing as I remembered it! \n\nIt was busy - if you're going between 7PM - 10PM, make a reservation! We were a bit early for our reservation so we parked it at the bar for a bit and had a fun time. Once seated, our server was great - super knowledgeable of the menu, wines, and even of previous specials! I had an amazing vegetarian tagliatelle meal when we came for my birthday in May, and he remembered the dish and while the restaurant was way too busy for us to request it off menu, I really appreciated the server acknowledging they would do it if not so slammed. Luckily the rigatoni was just as awesome of a dish so I'm glad I was able to try something else and enjoy it just as much. \nThe atmosphere is really energetic and perfect for a fun night out. One of my favorite restaurants in Vegas! High quality food, people, and overall experience.

Every trip to Vegas will have Lavo at least one night for dinner..the one pound kobe beef meatball stuffed with ricotta cheese is unbelievable. That is just the app. The veal parm with the long bone is the best I ever had. The place is super trendy and has an exciting vibe to it

We enjoyed a very fine dinner here a few years ago and planned our final night's dinner on this trip to be at Lavo. The food was okay, but not creative or particularly delectable. For the prices and the quality of service, I expected the food to be exceptional. Next time I will try one of the many other notable nearby choices for our special dinner out.

Loved the fresh bread & fresh marinara they initially bring out but it's not enuf bread to avoid wasting the marinara. They really shouldn't chg $6 just to be able to finish up a lil leftover marinara. \n\nPpl who go there, go for the food... So they're not going to fill up on bread vs appetizers so the owners of the restaurant shouldn't be concerned on whether they'll lose money on that feature/offer.

The restaurant had overall a nice ambience but the fact that there were two lines going to the hostess stand was confusing and people were constantly cutting in front. Even through we had a reservation we were still made to wait 25 minutes without even an apology. The ambiance was great but the problem was people were competing to speak over the ridiculously loud music which made it hard to have a conversation you were sitting next to. The food was amazing which balanced out the overall experience. I don't think I would go back because it felt like eating dinner in a club as opposed to a chill lounge.

My wife and I have been coming to Lavo for years and have written many good reviews and recommended Lavo to friends and family. We took our family there on Saturday and were embarrassed that we told them this was one of our favorite restaurants. The service could not have been worse. After arriving on time for our reservation, we were given a pager to wait until our table was ready. We ordered coffee as soon as we sat down and our waiter did not return with water or coffee until we asked for him on several occasions. Three times they brought coffee and spilled it in the saucer upon serving it. The most outrageous act of the meal was when someone on the wait staff slowly poured water onto the table instead of into my glass, and he was completely unaware of it. He may have been intoxicated. We will try again, but we won't be recommending Lavo for a while, and I sure hope this isn't the direction this restuarant is headed.

Loved this Las Vegas location of LAVO! It's inside the Venetian/Palazzo so one would only expect the luxury and decor to be up to par. I went for dinner although everyone recommends that it is one of the top places to go for brunch. The food was great all around and the staff was beyond friendly. At one point though one of the waiters started spanking some patrons with one those frat house boards (can't remember the name). It didn't bother me though was actually pretty entertaining ... I mean it is Vegas after all that's child's play compared to what you're going to see just walking the street.

My friend and I recently enjoyed this restaurant for dinner on our girls weekend in Las Vegas and were in love with the ambiance here! It was definitely very hip and happening, with a DJ playing great music. We were seated quickly and had a great view of the restaurant. The bread with the marinara like dip was awesome and so were the food/wine prices. I ordered the spaghetti and meatballs because people online raved about them and loved them! Only complaint I had was the weird cream cheese like ball of some type of cheese on top? The major thing about our meal that was off putting was that my friend found a sharp piece of plastic in her spaghetti! The staff was very understanding and took off her meal and gave us free dessert but this was scary, understandably! We were just lucky she hadn't swallowed it. Overall great experience minus the small plastic hiccup that was remedied smoothly by the wait staff.

We tried almost every restaurant at the Venetian/Palazzo and this is absolutely the worst of them. The lobster was smaller that the one in Lobster Me and way more expensive.

Started at the hostess stand. There were two check in people and several hostesses. They had us stand there waiting for 10 minutes while they stood there literally doing nothing. ( We had a 6:30 reservation which we showed up right on time for and is early for Vegas, it wasn't crowded at all so that was frustrating). Then when we were finally seated ( the table was half built in booth and chair on the other side) the booth side was covered in bread crumbs and I was sat at the joint of two cushions (very uncomfortable). As I began swatting the crumbs off to clear the seat the hostess made no effort to help. The service wasn't great as we were sat next to a large group who took most of our servers time. We constantly had empty drinks and sat with the table cleared just waiting for our check for over 10 minutes as well. The food was excellent and was the only redeeming quality.

Very excited to eat here because of the reviews and recommendations. So we got there at 8:45pm and we were done eating by 9:30pm. Odd right? I think if I had had my kids with me I would have wanted 'fast service' but we had no kids and wanted a relaxing dining experience. We ordered appetizers, salads, calamari, & meatball plus entres. Apps came out right away(which was great because we were hungry, but they forgot our salads). In no time shortly after our main course arrived. I felt like I didn't have time to breath because my food came in a blink of an eye. Normally I wouldn't mind but didn't finish my 1/2 order of carbonara because I got so full from eating so fast. I suggest they slow down their service just a tad. Food was tasty don't recommend the bolognse. Seafood pasta was delicious with a little bit of a spicy kick in the sauce.

The ambiance and decor are fantastic. Woodfired pizza is good but the rest of the pasta dishes fell flat of everyone's expectations. We ordered their 'signature' dish -spaghetti and meatballs, as well as the seafood linguine, risotto, pizza and the chicken Parmesan. Waitress was polite and the food came quickly. But the chicken parm was not at all crisp or flavorful. Tasted as if had been cooked well in advance and then just smothered in sauce before service. This was a really terrible dish. The risotto was good but a little too al dente- hence the quick service. And the seafood was cooked properly in the linguine but it just lacked something. Overall not bad but we all agreed it was not anything to rave about or return to. The spaghetti and meatballs were average. The pizza was by far the most flavorful dish.

It used to be my favorite Vegas Italian restaurant. Not anymore. The 'busser' was more attentive to my friend & I than our waiter was. I'm not even sure if we had an actual waiter. He seemed to be much more attentive to the table than to my guest and I. Food came out quickly, wine came after the meal, and bread came at the very end of the meal. Again, Busser was more attentive to our needs that the waiter. He was he one who took the drink order, however, he forgot what I ordered. All in all, Lavo did not live up to the experience I had 4 years prior. My guest was not pleased.

I have used Open Table close to 200 tmes but rarily leave reviews. The ratings of Lavo are very good which is why we choose to go here. Our experience heavily differed from others. Both the service and the main course were poor. We ordered the meatball app and the meat anc cheese platter to start and both were great. Then the main course came. My Penne Vodak pasta was so overcooked it tasted like rubber. My wife felt the same about her stuffed ravioli. I then waited over 15 minues for the waiter to finally come back. It was obvious I had not touched the meal and yet he yanked the plate before I even realized he was there. By now I was to aggravated to care and actually found it interesting that no one asked about our meal even though neither were close to finished. We could have found a manager and complained but we just wanted to get our of this place.\n\nCouple of notes, this is more of a modern look and is a bit loud. Also if you choose to go you may not want to go if there are only two of you as they have the long couch on one side with a chair across set up and you are basically crammed in all the way down the line as the sitting is very close to each other.

This place also accommodated my sisters vegan needs and basically asked her what she was in the mood for and they could whip it together.

Sunday brunch with several bottomless mimosa choices. Perfect outdoor seating area. Really interesting menu and great flavors. Highly recommend. Never felt rushed

Enjoyed a relaxing birthday dinner on the patio at Lavo. Restaurant Manager Pascual Chavez welcomed me and thanked me for choosing Lavo for my birthday dinner. Excellent, attentive but not intrusive service. Wonderful dinner with specialty coffee and desert. Pascual returned to my table to adjust my check and provided complimentary wine and coffee. Overall excellent dining experience- will definitely return here again !!

The patio was perfect around sunset, overlooking Treasure Island and The Mirage! The food was SO good, and huge portions! We had the eggplant parmesan for the appetizer to split for 2 people, which was about 1 lb, almost too big, but so delicious. We also ordered the Chicken Parmesan, which our waiter said would be enough to feed 2 people, and he wasn't kidding! The chicken alone took up the whole plate. We also ordered the spaghetti and meatballs, as the meatballs were described as their specialty - also great! The service was wonderful, the ambiance was great. I would HIGHLY recommend!

This restaurant never ever disappoints. Best Italian in LV without a doubt.

Service was great. I got an blueberry and lemon cocktail which I was told was similar to an italian mojito. It was light and fresh and hit the spot while we waited for our food.\n\nI had the meatball on the bed of greens and it was amazing. The lemon vinegrette paired nicely with the salty marinara sauce of the meatball. My husband has lobster bisque and chicken Parm. Lobster bisque could have been creamier but he loved the chicken Parm. We also shared truffle fries which were flavorful but I prefer truffle fries that are smaller and closer to string fries. \n\nOverall it was great and because we were celebrating, they brought out a special desert which was tasty and thoughtful!

We were skeptical about trying the meatball as an appetizer but it was wonderful, oysters, wedge salad, strip steak, carpaccio all were great. A very wonderful experience and one of the best we've had these past three years in Vegas; not too loud, great ambiance and even our 2 seventeen yr old boys thought it was the highlight of the trip. Fabulous blue cheese stuffed olives in the martinis.

This was a great meal. Authentic Italian flavor that were very fresh. We chose the meatball along with the spaghetti carbonara, a chianti and a mixed drink for our mealS. This was the perfect amount of food complemented by their delicious garlic bread to fill a hungry couple. Top notch and highly recommended.

This restaurant was amazing! My husband and I went to this restaurant for our wedding anniversary. The food was so fantastic, we ended up staying for nearly two and a half hours (which is how it should be in an Italian restaurant) just savoring the food. It is a little pricey, so be aware, but if you are celebrating a special occasion, this is a great place.

Service was average, veal. Park was over cooked, malbec wine had sediment in glass. For all the hype of this restaurant, I would NOT RECOMMEND THIS.

It Sunday at 3:30 so it wasn't too busy. we sat outside in the sun. The were some annoying pigeons but otherwise it was nice. The men ordered the 16oz meatball with riggota on top which they said was delicious. I got lemon waffles and bacon from the brunch menu that were so good!

I will give this another chance but was disappointed this time. Patio overlooks LV Blvd and is lovely. Timing was the factor - we arrived about 11:45 and weren't seated for 20 min. They were already starting to set up for the 'Party Brunch' beginning at 2 PM. Patio waiters were distracted by trying to manage tables and set-up. By 1PM they were not so subtly urging people out.\n\nThe food was well made but arrived looking like it had been sitting for awhile in the kitchen (again waiter distraction). Bloody Mary's are delicious & Lavo offers an 'all you can drink for $30' on Mimosas, Kira Royals & a couple of other champagne brunch drinks. This attracted several bachelorette parties which made for a fun atmosphere.\n\nNext time I will plan to arrive no later than 10 AM.
