What is my favorite Italian restaurant in Las Vegas?
As a local Las Vegan, and being Italian, I’m very picky about where I eat Italian food.
I’m quite certain most Italians would say the same thing. Why? Because our moms, and our Nonie’s, made the best Italian food there ever was. Their sauce was the best, most unique sauce ever made – or at least that’s what Italians believe. Because to us, it’s absolutely true!
And those recipes, and flavors were passed down to us, so now I make the best sauce. But who wants to cook all the time? Which is why I want to share with you what I think are the best Italian joints in Las Vegas.
When you live in Las Vegas, you try to avoid the strip most of the time (unless those relatives come in from out of town, and you have to do the “Vegas thing.” or we got that comp from that one person, who works in that show). But, this means we know the better, sometimes best, restaurants in town.
The best restaurants in Las Vegas, in general, are not always on the Las Vegas strip. Yes, Las Vegas has some of the biggest chefs, owning some of the biggest, and most expensive restaurants in the country, but sorry – they are not the best. At least not in this locals humble opinion.
I have people ask all the time “what are some good Italian restaurants in Las Vegas?” Many reading, this may not agree with me, and they don’t have to. These just happen to be some of MY favorites in Las Vegas.
So next time you are visiting Las Vegas, or if you live here- don’t be afraid to give one of these a try. I guarantee you won’t be sorry.
Here are my favorite Italian restaurants, in no particular order, except the last on that is my TRUE FAVORITE!
Now as my grandma, Amelia (Millie) used to say: Bon appetite, and mangia, MANGIA!
