Meatballs are exceptional, service was old school style and very well led. The rest of the meal was good, but would return for the meatballs any time. Trying to get a seat in Harlem is next to impossible, so a worthwhile stop in Vegas.

My husband and I ate here before our show at the Bellagio. The atmosphere was dimly lite with interesting photographs of different celebrities etc lining the walls. Overall the atmosphere was great, but it was a tad loud while we where there; however, the restaurant was very crowded so kind of too be expected. We were immediately served with water... More

Excessively over priced average food. Think of Olive garden but triple the price. Service was good. So many better places to get better Italian food for a lot less.

Went there for a business meeting dinner and there was a total of 6 of us. The 15 minute wait that we were told turned into a 45 minute wait. I had the lemon checked that was very dry and tasteless. All I can say is that I was not the only one at our table that was unsatisfied.

We went for Valentine's Day and had a great time. Unfortunately my wife and I were both a little sick and the fantastic food was kind of wasted on us. No room for desert but it all looked great!

Really good meal and cocktails before a show yesterday. Ate at the bar. The bartender was excellent. Food was so good we went back late tonight for drinks and dessert. Amazing cheesecake. Yesterday we split the meatballs and fried mozzarella and I had the taglialone with prosciutto and peas and my husband had the shrimp. The pasta was outstanding.

The Osso bucu serving was huge and tasty, my partner had the fillet Mignon. Good quick service, sat at the bar as the restaurant was booked out and we got there fairly early but it was Valentine's Day. Complimentary bread and dips which were a lovely addition. Meal and drinks a bit on the costly side but we both enjoyed... More

We were very excited to try Rao's after hearing about the legendary impossible to get reservations restaurant in NY. The food was disappointing - no special "family owned and operated" vibe going on here. It is a typical on the strip overpriced place that serves almost fast food like dishes - feed 'em and street 'em - kind of thing.... More

We are Italian and were so looking forward to great food. Chicken parm was overcooked and dry. It was served way too cool. Far from delicious. Rest of meals were good but not worth the exorbitant prices.
