Italian food - who doesn't love it? Pricey pasta is a different story. I treated my niece to dinner here during CES. Reservations at my favorite places weren't available on a busy Saturday night. Rao's was recommended, and had a few slots left, so we took the reservation and wandered down to Ceasar's. We chose the meatballs for an appetizer,... More

It came highly recommended, yet we found food and service just average. We had made early dinner reservations since we were going to a show that night and they seemed not quite ready for customers. Our server did not go over specials (but we didn't ask either) and even though 2 of our party had been there before, I felt... More

Had the veal Parmesan. Bone in. Big portion. $54. To get pasta on the side they hit you up for another 6-8 bucks. I hate when restaurants do that. That's nickel and dimeing in my opinion and just pisses me off. For that reason I probably wouldn't go back and would be more inclined to try something different.

Rao's came highly recommended, and we came in with high expectations. I was very disappointed in food that was fairly ordinary, but at a very high price point. I'm sure that there is better Italian food, or at least cheaper fare, in Vegas.

popped in here before a show, and too be honest could have slept through the show after eating here. . meatballs excellent, lasagna way too big for one. . All very good, would recommend , but not if you need to be awake 60 mins later!

Hearty, honest, Italian fare with generous portions. They sat us next to a column with an obstructed view. We asked to sit at the next table but we were told it was reserved. The table sat empty the whole time we were there. Service was otherwise friendly and prompt. The fact that it's located in Caesars palace is the only... More

We were told Rao's had great meatballs. We ordered those with our entray. My wife had Spagetti Bolganze and I have Linquine with Clams in a white sause. Both were excellant. The linquine had chopped clams and clams in the shell. The meatballs were delicious.

I had veal picata and although very standard in presentation was perfect flavor and great portion size. The room is great and the service was very, very good. My wife enjoyed her's equally. I'm pretty picky when it comes to service and this restaurant has my compliments. I'd go again in a heartbeat. Join me ljmartin dot com author of... More

I'm sure I'll never get into Rao's original location, but that doesn't matter any more based on the scrumptious dinner I had at this one. Expecting a long wait at the peak dinner hour, I was instead offered a seat at the bar, where I had a perfect meal and impeccable service. The veal parmigiana is actually a veal chop,... More

My wife and I ate here prior to seeing a show at the Coliseum. We tried the meatball (which everyone recommends) and it was good. It wasn't truly amazing, but it would be hard to live up to the hype. For a meatball, it was great. The salads were the real starts - both the beet salad and the caprese... More
