We just returned from 4 days in Las Vegas. One of the highlights was discovering Chicago Joe's Italian restaurant, a small locals place away from the Strip. The food was fantastic. I had the crab and shrimp ravioli with basil cream sauce and grilled shrimp. The dinner salad was great. Others had the spinach lasagna and spaghetti with sausage. Everyone... More

Chicago Joe's has been on my radar for a while, but the wife and I never made it over until recently. Went on a Friday night around 8pm. Place was almost empty. This is not a bad thing necessarily because it is a SMALL location. The main dining room has maybe six tables in it, with a few more in... More

Asked a local diner owner where he would go for good Italian and he said "no place but Chicago Joe's" He was "spot on" and it was a fantastic! From the fresh bread and great wine selection to the homemade salad dressings and unbelievable pasta offerings. Wish I would have found this place years ago. No more than 15 tables... More

We actually did take out. But it was easy to order over the phone. This is in a small community off the strip. A house turned restaurant, maybe ten tables. Lots of Christmas lights created the atmosphere. The food was amazing! Will definitely be returning. Large portions! Salad or soup with entrees!

Arguably the best Italian food in town. Very small restaurant in, what appears to be a former house. There is limited parking in the back which you need to access from the alley. Inside, it feels different in all of the right ways. Make sure to get reservations.

Long time local restaurant with AMAZING food. Reservations necessary (especially on weekends/holidays) as it is limited in seating capacity. There is nothing on the menu that isn't awesome. All their items have stood the test of time and are delicious. Servers are well acquainted with menu items, and easily make suggestions/substitutions if you are undecided. Service is fast and attentive,... More

A really old time Las Vegas restuarant in a small house in downtown Las Vegas. I have been in town 18 years and never got around to going. What a mistake. The food, service and atmosphere were terrific. Lawrence took great care of us. A must place for lunch downtown. Take an Uber!!

I was very skeptical because of the location of this restaurant. I walked inside and it was a very small place with a fire going and the tables had checkerboard tablecloth. The staff which consisted of two people were all over me and seated me immediately. The fire warmed the place up. The menu was simple and the food was... More

My niece who lives here took us to this wonderful place. Small, quaint, quiet. The staff are excellent, the food was fantastic and the price was good. My new favorite place in Las Vegas!

Forget the glitz and glam of Vegas casinos. This converted house is the real deal...an authentic Italian place with lovingly prepared food in the kitchen that is steps away from your table. It is small and cozy so be prepared for homey with vintage photos of family and "the old country" on the walls. The menu is simple, specials are... More
