Extremely overpriced greasy and terrible bar food. Me and my wife are foodies and can tell you honestly to avoid this place.

It was difficult to hold a conversation, very noisy. The seafood platter was disappointing. Plenty of food for $85.00, but raw/half shell items were not fresh. The meatball was very good, highlight of the evening.

We ate dinner on a Tuesday night when the nightclub is off and it was still packed. High energy noise level. We moved outside on the patio with strip view and it was really pleasant for talking. Still, I loved the inside energy and ambiance too.

Food was very good. Started with baked clams and calamari. The clams where smothered in Parmesan cheese, not my favorite, but the calamari was fresh and very good. The main course i had the spaghetti, and my wife had penne vodka both fresh and highly recommend. The Italian cheesecake was a delicious desert. The problem with the restaurant - way to LOUD. Do i really need to hear AC/DC playing through the house speakers (and I like AC/DC) while I'm trying to have a dinner conversation. Bottom line food is very good, but restaurant is not for couples who want to speak to each other. More for the the business trip types.

We tried Lavo as part of Restaurant week and it was amazing! Portions were much larger than expected and food was cooked to perfection (Calamari could have been cook about 2 minutes longer for a slightly crunchier texture IMO) Chicken parmigiana was as large as the plate and seasoned to perfection. Caesar salad was crisp and fresh. The desserts are HUGE to say the least and freshly made! Strawberry shortcake was about 6 inches tall and the tiramisu was absolutely delicious! Tiramisu was served in a bowl (we joked about being the size of a bucket) and delicious from top to bottom!

Overall, it was a decent experience. The waiter was nice, but I did feel like we were a little rushed.
I loved everything about Lavo! Our server was very knowledgeable about the menu and made fantastic recommendations. At his suggestion, I ordered the The Meatball with whipped ricotta and spaghetti - it was phenomenal! He also recommended the perfect, refreshing summer drink - Bubbles and Berries! Absolutely delicious. We sat on the patio and watched the sun go down and the lights come up on the strip. The whole evening was very memorable and I would definitely recommend dining there!!

Girlfriends' weekend Saturday night dinner
It was very loud in restaurant for our 8 pm reservations, we are outside. It was pretty warm at first. Misters would be nice , since I've seen LAVO use umbrellas and heaters at Valois times. Food was excellent as was the service.
RATING & EXPERIENCE
Overall, my experience was great! I continue to patronize this location due to it's food, wine/drink selection, and service. The reasons for the lack of "Outstanding" ratings in all categories are: 1) often times too noisy to have enjoyable conversation with my colleagues/friends, and 2) in appropriate behavior by both patrons and a server - birthday celebrants were spanked by their server which my fellow patrons and I found both unprofessional an inappropriate, as some of the patrons were wearing clothing that revealed under garments and "skin".
LAS VEGAS DINNER
We found the restaurant to be very nice. I had the bone in Ribeye and my wife had the meatball as the entree. Both we found to be pleasing. Overall just a great dining experience for a mid- fifties couple.
Great food and even better service
After a series of terrible servers in Las Vegas, our server at Lavo was a breath of fresh air. And the food was delicious to boot. I would definitely return.

The veal Milanese was too salty. The waiter also told us the first drink was on the house but when the bill arrived the drinks were not on the house. We didn't want anything for free but don't tell a customer it on the house when it's not!!
Visiting Vegas with my children, I wanted a top quality Italian restaurant that featured both standards for the kids and ecclectic, daring choices for me. Lavo fit the bill perfectly. The chicken parmigano (kids) was abundant and out of this world. I had the tuna appetizer which was fresh and a bold mix of flavors and textures. My pasta was fresh and rich and the sauce was perfection. To talk about dessert--a MUST. The oreo zeppolle's thrilled my kids and I didn't mind them either.
Overpriced, but nice atmosphere.
It was "just ok". I went there for a special occasion..."Birthday". I share it online via Open Table. It was not acknowledge by the restaurant. It was a small portion of the main entree. Just thought it was overpriced and the food was moderate in taste.

Amid was our server and he was excellent. Very friendly and well informed on the menu items, along with the rest of the service staff. You MUST try the meatball - it is to die for, in fact we are considering going back one last time before we leave to have another! We sat on the balcony, which was very nice and our main dishes were delicious....end your meal with the 20 layer chocolate-peanut butter cake....AMAZING!
Not welcome at Lavo
Like so many trendy restaurants in Las Vegas, Lavo has become a place that only wants to cater to the High Rollers. I guess the tips are better. My wife, daughter and I just wanted an early dinner without all the frills such as gigantic appitizers. Just a quiet dinner. We got the cold shoulder when we indicated that was out intention. And $32 for 6 raviolis? Really. Outlandish. I know we can do better elsewhere.

Dinner at Lavo
Bartenders were really good and make a great cocktail. The outdoor dining was perfect as it was beautiful evening. Waiters assistant was a lot of fun. The waiter was a bit busy and really had no time for explanations etc but his helper made up for what he lacked in personality. The food was delicious. Everyone seemed to enjoy I would definitely go back

The ambiance and the servers were great! However, the wait to actually be seated was ridiculous! We had a party of four with a reservation for 8:30 and didn't not get seated until 9:50pm! Also the table that we were seated was in a corner in a really tight space next to a cupboard where the servers frequently went in and out of. While doing so, they often hit the back of one of my guests' chairs. That was super annoying. Other than that, the food was just ok, the ambiance was beautiful, the waiters and hosts were super nice, and it seemed like a very popular spot. I probably will not return to this establishment mainly because of the wait tie even though we had a reservation.

This our 7th time to Lavo and it didn't disappoint again! It's a fun vibrant scene. Food is very good and consistent. Service is always strong.
My boss reserved a table for us for our trip. It was the best. Our server, the atmosphere, food, drinks, EVERYTHING was the best. I highly recommend sitting outside.

A bit loud due to a bachelorette party but what do you expect, when you're in Vegas? All around a great place to eat with a staff eager to go above and beyond for customers.

Disappointing. Meatballs tasted like my meatloaf-fillers. Heard all this rave about this resteraunt and left feeling unsatisfied.
