CarneVino Italian Steakhouse - Palazzo Hotel Ratings and Reviews
Wait staff is extremely knowledgeable about the menu and were fantastic! Our glasses were never empty and they were always checking on us to be sure we had everything we needed. The sommelier was very knowledgeable and helped our large party choose several bottles of wine that were perfect.
Both classic and innovative Italian dishes paired with delicious steaks and other meat options. A HUGE wine list, creative cocktails and mocktails (which was a treat), and a classic rock music selection. I was thrilled. Food was delicious and the steaks were large. Pastas were perfect for sharing. All in all, it was a lovely experience.
We realized ahead of time that this place was going to be expensive. We didn't mind that what we didn't like was the mediocre food. My husband got a pasta that wasn't the size of an appetizer in most restaurant. I got the short ribs. While tasty they were so tough to cut. The best were the mashed potatoes. Wish I had just ordered them and nothing else. I drank water. My husband got a vodka tonic and a wine. We didn't get appetizer or salads. The bill came to $150.00. We sat quite a while before someone actually came to the table. When they did the service was very good. In our opinion this place is just way too expensive for the amount of food that is served. However, you are paying for the name of Mario Batali.
Value for the dollar is awful. This is an extremely over priced restaurant for what you get I don't care how you say it. Example, one of our appetizers, caprese tomatoe salad was one slice of tomatoe 4 small cherry tomatoes, a dab of basil pesto and small piece of mozzarella cheese. That was $25. When laughed and questioned why the portions was so small for the money. We were quickly told about how the mozzarella was handmade by the same guy for 20 years blah blah blah. Bottom line, bad value for the dollar. Don't even think about sharing, too small for one let alone two. Come on Mario!
Thought incorrectly that Mario would have his staff up to the task, they weren't . Didn't get steaks which looked good, ordered a veal chop, which was excellent, but quite small considering it cost $60, wife's gnocchi were very good, the squash blossoms appetizer was terrible, and the baked eggplant side dish wasn't even fully cooked, and to top it off our pasta dish was od in pancetta grease. Wouldn't go back.
Staff is very knowledgeable and extremely helpful. Giulio (our waiter) was fantastic and answered all of our questions. We ordered the grilled octopus (delicious!!), dry aged bone-in ribeye for two, and the beef cheek raviolis (the special) to share. The ribeye was expertly carved table side and Giulio explained each cut of meat as well as the fat content and flavor. The ravioli melted in your mouth. Hands down my favorite Italian steakhouse - we will be coming back when we're in town.
From the moment we were seated, to the moment we left, the experience was very nice!
Every dish we ordered was a treat! From the Stracciatella, to the Salted Caramel Cheesecake, everything was superb! The veal, the beef, the side dishes and the recommended wine was an experience not soon to be forgotten!
Food was excellent. We were a group of three and shared our food. I would highly recommend sharing so you can try more yummy food. We ordered the hanger steak. It was very tender and tasty. The octopus was one of the best I've tried. The beef cheek ravioli was phenomenal. The mascarpone smashed potatos were good. They mix the egg in front of you. The steak tartare with mushrooms was also a winner. This place has great food with great service. The bartenders' service stood out. Highly recommend!
The reason I gave food 3 star because my boyfriend ordered the Lamb chop and it was cooked to medium as service recommended. Not sure it is the meat itself or the meat is too pink in middle, he had bad stomach at the late night of the dinner. I liked my food a lot which is pork shank. So hopefully the restaurant will get our feedback and just make sure the lamb is good
Positives: good value pre-theater menu, extensive wine list, excellent service.
Negatives: desserts were not as good as the apps or entrees, seated in the additional dining room across from hostess and got the smoke and noise from the casino floor (ask for main dining room).
Ambience was good, service was excellent. Appetizers was amazing (octopus). Side were amazing (mashed potatoes and corn). Steak was okay, not as good as I expected at that price level.
Music was loud and it was 80's hard rock hair bands all night. Not what I would expect from a romantic fine dining restaurant. They need to fix that asap. Very distracting and un-romantic dinner experience.
We celebrated our wedding anniversary and couldn't have chosen a better place. With awesome rock and roll music playing all night, to the most interesting soap made from Mario Batali's kitchen grease waste in the bathrooms! The wait staff and sommelier were exceptionally knowledgeable. The food was to die for. I LOVE Bastianich Vini Orsone Sauvignon Blanc! If I weren't already married...
Bravo Carnevino and Grazie!
We celebrated our 36th Anniversary and really had a terrific meal. We had the Steak Fiorentina for 2. The best steak we have ever had! We had this same steak about 8 years ago and we thought it was the best ever then so we were set to be disappointed but far from it! APL and Mario Batalli have created the magic combination of great aging and proper preparation!

We had such high hopes based on all of the reviews. The cocktails at the bar before dinner were great, made by a very attentive and skilled bartender. The dinner was in a word, disappointing. The bread was dry probably to over warming. Our replacement bread was lame too. They ran out of oysters and told us after we ordered them. We chose one of the top two steak orders - the priciest - and it was not good. Beef ravioli was a bit hard around the edges. Filet was good for one of us who ordered it and the corn side. Even the water was the only gross tap water we had in Vegas. So sad. We didn't dare chance dessert. Spent so much money - wine was excellent but the restaurant didn't make that!
Too expensive for what we received:
I chose two of the most highly recommended restaurants for our steak dinners in Las Vegas which were recommended in the "Eating Las Vegas , the 50 most essential restaurants" Those restaurants were Carnevino and Wolfgang Puck's The Cut.
Since we were eating in two very expensive restaurants in seven days, we limited ourselves to the bare essentials. We ordered the Bone-in Ribeye for two ($152.), We shared a Raviolo pasta ($21.) and had two Peroni beers ($16).
We informed our waiter that I usually ordered my steaks medium rare, but my other half ordered hers medium well; so we would have to compromise and order our steak medium. The steak served to us was beet red rare, not what we ordered. The steak was good but not very juicy and not as tasty as I was expecting. And, it definitely was not the best steak I have eaten, although it was the most expensive.
The approx. 4 inch wide "Raviolo" served to us had ricotta and a soft poached egg inside of it and was surrounded by melted brown butter. When I cut into the creation, the soft poached egg ran out over the plate requiring us to use a spoon and to use bread to soak up the delicious liquid. I believe that this dish would have been more enjoyable if it was served as a sauce over homemade pasta instead of being stuffed inside a large ravioli.
I was disappointed in the single style of dinner roll served to our table. It was a coarse grain roll but nothing unique or exceptional for a restaurant of this quality. (The "Cut" served us a fantastic selection of the most delicious rolls.
Our Peroni beers were delicious.
Cost benefit analysis: In my opinion, the $204, plus tip, for this very abbreviated dinner was not worth what I paid for it.
Very good quality of beef. Try the beef tasting menu, it is worth the price. The only downside to this restaurant is that it is somewhat too big for a higher end establishment. Also, the view is not inspiring. Food quality is at acceptable level for the price that is asked. Would recommend as an introduction to higher quality dining, as a stepping stone to true culinary experience that some high-end restaurants in Las Vegas have to offer.
Unbelievably tasty! We had the porterhouse which was delicious. Melted in the mouth, tons of flavour. Hubby and I both agreed it was the best steak we'd had anywhere. Sides were delicious too and waiters very friendly and knowledgeable about the menu. It is a bit on the pricier side but well worth it!
Food quality and cooking skills are superb. Excellent & attentive service. Extensive wine list.
We ordered the followings:
Arugula Salad with goat cheese & pickled onions - very appetizing.
Grilled octopus - very palette pleasing but a bit spicy.
Lobster anolini - tasty; pasta dough is both al dente & thin, as expected.
Beef cheek in red wine ravioli with 25 years old balsamic vinegar - flavourful, excellent.
Spaghetti Mare - all seafood (shrimps, scallops, mussels, razor clams & lobster) fresh spaghetti pasta with rich marinara sauce, perfect.
Razor clams - very fresh & tasty sauce, love it.
Riserva - Dry aged 8 months ribeyes is so flavourful & tender, absolutely superb!! This s/b the way to eat steak!!
We thoroughly enjoyed our meals & the interior design of the restaurant. Will definitely return again & again!
One of the most incredible dining experiences of my life--was able to get one of Carnevino's eight month aged Riserva ribeye steaks and it was so unique and delicious. Our bartender/server Guido made the evening magical. Also very much enjoyed the beef cheeks ravioli, steak tartare with shaved mushroom slices, and the chocolate peanut butter bar. We go to Las Vegas at least once a year and Carnevino will always be one of our must-stops.
