My husband and and I came here with friends on a Friday night before we caught a show. We were able to make reservations the same day. The restaurant didn't seem busy when we walked in. We were seated in the main dining room which felt like old style New York Italian. The restaurant walls were filled with autographed photos... More

My husband and I went here with some friends before a show - we all loved it! We of course had the meatballs and all tried various pasta dishes. The marinara is fantastic and we loved the cheesecake! Grab a reservation before hand (we were able to get one the same day) and ask to be seated in one of... More

Rao's had been suggested to us by a friend who frequently travels to Las Vegas. We decided to go during Happy Hour as the drinks and food items are reduced in price. It's a chain from the New York based restaurant that opened in 1896, yep that's old. It has a rich history and prides itself as being one of... More

I was really looking forward to going here but it was the worst restaurant we went to during our two week trip in the States. We were shown to our table and the waiter arrived literally one minute later to take our wine order. We hadn't even opened the menus. He returned about 5 minutes later and we ordered our... More

Having eaten at Raos a umber of times in the past, some good some average, we dined there this past Monday evening. With reservations were seated almost immediately by a pleasant hostess. I ordered eggplant parmigiana and my wife had a meat lasagna, we both had a Caesar salad. The Caesar salads were just right, but the rest of dinner... More

We had eaten at Nobu's the night before and were very disappointed. Eating at Rao's was a totally different experience. I had the Osso Bucco and my wife had the shrimp scampi. Both were great. The service was prompt and attentive. Prices were moderate. Eat here first if you love Italian food. We will go back to eat their famous... More

I hate to say it, but we didn't have a great experience here. We had a reservation but still waited 30+ minutes and were not able to get a booth as requested but instead a table in the loudest room imaginable. The acoustics were so terrible that we basically could not converse with each other. The food was good, I... More

Rao's was a hit for our entire group! Book early for a reservation though! We had a group of 8 co-workers who were looking for a nice dinner to relax at during our fast-paced CES trip. We found it at Rao's! The wine list is phenomenal, albeit at typical Vegas boosted prices. The food though, was phenomenal and a great... More

Matt was our server and WOW!!!! You couldn't ask for a better person to tell you about the history of Rao's. He was an expert on all the food and made great recommendations. I had the filet mignon and my hubby had Ossa Bucco. He couldn't stop talking about it. Will visit again when in Vegas.
