Italian (Off-Strip)

14 Listings

Italian cuisine in Las Vegas has come a long way over the past few decades. Sure, we still have the type of red sauce joints the Rat Pack loved. But the best of them have been elevated to a higher level by chefs who show respect for those classic dishes by making them with high-end ingredients and impeccable technique. And they’re joined by an impressive collection restaurants -- large and small, casual to formal – that honor other Italian culinary traditions. Even off The Strip, you can find fantastic interpretations of Italy’s many regional cuisines, as well as Italian American traditions from both coasts. All of those styles, and more, are represented on this list – in setting that range from family-friendly casual to date-night elegant.
