About Scarpetta - The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas
An earthy yet sophisticated approach to Italian cuisine, Scarpetta was created by award-winning chef Scott Conant and features a soulful menu of seasonally-inspired fare. An Italian expression that means “little shoe”, or the shape bread takes when used to soak up a dish, Scarpetta represents the pure pleasure of savoring a meal down to the very last taste. Try a signature dish such as Sicilian-Spiced Duck Breast, Seared Sea Scallops with Sunchokes or Spaghetti with Tomato and Basil.

Scarpetta - The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas Ratings and Reviews

I made reservations for the wrong night so we showed up a night early and they were so accommodating. Everything went smoothly and we had a table within 5 minutes. I really appreciated this and on top of it service was some of the best I've ever had. The food was delicious and overall we had such a great dining experience. Thank you so much Scarpetta!!!

We've been to Scarpetta before and it never disappoints. Great service, reasonable wine prices and abosulutely fabulous food. Our table had the grilled octopus, burrata salad, and scallops for appetizers and they were all wonderful! We had the chef make us a small pasta dish so that we could all share a little before the entrees and that was cooked to perfection. Our entrees included the duck, filet, and baramundi. Everyone loved their dish!! Enjoy a meal at Scarpetta!

We had the Duck & Foie Gras Ravioli and the Short Rib Agnolotti, and I'm not exaggerating when I say it's one of the best Italian meals I have ever had. We were seated quickly and food came out faster than expected. The bread and dippings you get with the meal were a nice surprise. We will be back.

This was our second time dining at Scarpetta. We had a great experience the first time and so we decided to make Scarpetta one of our restaurant choices this year. Last year everything was perfect - the service, the food, the ambiance. That might be because Scott Conant was there that evening. This year, no Scott Conant that we could see and that may be the reason for lack of service. The hostess, very unfriendly. The waiter, unpleasant as well. The food was good. Not excellent like last time, just good. When you spend that kind of money, it's expected that you feel good about your decision to spend it.

Wait staff was great and attentive. Food was delicious. I had kobe beef and my date had spaghetti; both were amazing. Although a little pricey but definitely worth it and not too bad for a nice dinner out in Vegas. The view was decent, there are windows overlooking the Bellagio fountains, but you're also lower to the ground, so you are close to the street too.

This is one of our favorite restaurants. We've now had the tasting menu on two occasions and would recommend it. You can try several of the dishes, and paired wines. We especially loved the tuna and whitetail appetizer and the agnollotti.

Scarpetta has once again exceeded my expectations with great service and an even better meal. The manager took us to the Chef's Table in the back of the restaurant because it was my birthday and it was the most amazing meal I have ever had. The Short Rib pasta was perfect and so filling. My family all agree that it was the best dinner we have had anywhere.

I enjoy the food very much in Scarpetta, but mostly I went there for the atmosphere. I can see the fountain in Ballegio and enjoy food at the same time without crowded people, which is fantastic and relieving.
The only thing I want to complain is that when our souffle was served, the waiter kind of rushed to our table and poured every topping (syrup and strawberry) into the souffle very fast. It is not polite, cause he didn't ask us if he's allowed to do that for us, and this makes us feel like that he just want us to finish our meal and leave asap considering more people would come for dinner later. Me and my boyfriend only wanted to enjoy the dessert slowly and suddenly the dessert was ruined.
I would not let the waiter/waitress do that for my dessert again if I stop by next time!!

Very beautifully prepared and presented food. The service was outstanding The wait staff actually waited until both my husband and I had finished our meals before they started clearing our table. Very few restaurants abide by that old rule these days. We were both impressed, and would like to return soon.

The starters of short ribs and yellowtail were perfection! HIGHLY recommended. The entrees of lamb chops and branzino, did not disappoint either. The service was impeccable, can't say enough about the genuine hospitable and helpful staff. 5 stars to each person! Ask for seat by the window, the view adds to the total experience.

Great atmosphere for a night out with friends or gathering! Bartender made a drink I requested...without it being on the menu...and it was excellent! Server was patience with the many questions we had on the dishes...lots of ingredients we hadn't heard of. Food came quickly even though the restaurant was busy. Yummy! Wish there were some more salads on the menu, but would recommend Scarpetta for sure!!!

The food was excellent. Our waiter was extremely attentive. The ambience was dim and relaxing. Towards the end of our dinner we had an obnoxious loud group of people that sat next to us. But we had a wonderful view of the Bellagio fountain. Highly recommend.

A great way to experience a true celeb chef without the cheesy atmosphere of some of Vegas' other spots. Although this isn't a spot for every child, our 8-year-old even loved the food and the waitstaff was super nice.

The extra friendly service & easy accommodation to our no-show guest and then last minute order was much much appreciated. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone wanting a nice, upscale, delicious, intimate get together. LOVED IT.

Delicious food, kind and attentive service, a view of the Bellagio fountains (in the distance). We did the tasting menu and it was excellent. However, my table (we are two young women) would have preferred a tasting menu option with 1-2 less courses at a slightly less expensive price. Although it was probably the best food we had in Vegas, we left feeling overstuffed. I would come back, but would probably order a la carte next time.

The view from the window was fabulous. You can see the bellagio fountain. The waiter rushed us, would not let us enjoy our cocktails without putting in our wine order. Could not enjoy the apps without putting in our entrees. I had to duck ravioli and the filling was dry. The Deseret menu was almost none existent. For a $400+ dinner it has to be the worst fine dinning restraunt I have ever attended in my life.

I had dinner at Scarpetta because it was recommended by a friend. We got a window seat so we could see the Bellagio fountains. That was okay, but there was a bar in the middle of the window so it was hard to see the fountains unless you stood up. We mostly just had a view of some weird storage area and that wasn't great. When we arrived at 6:00pm, there were only a couple of other tables with diners seated at them. I was surprised it wasn't busier on a Sunday evening. I had the duck ravioli and my mom had the spaghetti. Both dishes were good. I would rate the food a 7/10. They had a very large wine list, which was impressive. The staff were all very kind and helpful. I would recommend trying this restaurant out but maybe visit at a later time in the evening to experience a better crowd.

Scarpetta had great food but they boast about having great views of the Bellagio fountains. The majority of the fountains are covered by a wall and you cant actually see them. Also, there is a bar running through the window pane at eye level that makes it hard to see them when you are on the window. Food and atmosphere were great, just seems like the views were a bit overstated. I would still recommend them for the food and price.

Used Trip Advisor to search for a high end Italian restaurant for our last "date" night in Vegas and took the advise of other diners to try Scarpetta. Bottom line - one of the best diners and dining experiences we've had anywhere which circumnavigates the world. We had to take the early seating on Mon, June 13th - 6p - so we arrived and it was quiet. Arriving early, had a drink at the bar and met great bar staff which set the tone for the evening.
We were seated at a table for two overlooking the fountains at Caesar's. The Cosmopolitan was to be high end condos that failed during the downturn but the hotel owners have made it a great place - with bright and modern casino and lots of great shots and restaurants. Scarpetta's just continues this "better than yours" theme.
Most of the time we just look at the menu as wait staff can be more about order taking than order serving. Our waiter, Roberto (I hope!!) was a true professional He walked us thru options for all courses and paired a wine.
The starter was shared Mediterranean Octopus salad that was surprising warm. Beyond Excellent. We then split an order of Foie Gras and Mushroom Ravioli that I wish I had ordered a portion to go. There are now words.
For the main, we both wanted fish so with his suggestion we ordered one Cod with Fennel, Roasted Peppers and goat cheese and one Sea Bass with shaved prosciutto and small potatoes and spinach. These portions are not large - but they were perfect in every way. We had eaten 3 courses and when finished were not stuffed - all by the guiding hand of our waiter. Brilliant.
The dessert was a heavenly creation - Chocolate Toasted Almond Cake with Coconut Gelato. The angels blessed us.
This is one of those rare finds in Vegas - there are hundreds to thousands of restaurants but mostly just food stops. Scarpetta's has style, class, atmosphere and food creations that are cooked and presented with love of the experience.
We had such a terrific dinner here! So much so that we had to come back the next night and order the two pastas again at the bar (the black pasta with uni and crab and the simple, but wonderful spaghetti with marinara). SO GOOD! We will definitely make this restaurant a must on any future trips to Vegas.
Scarpetta was even better than expected. The scallops were sweet and flavorful, but the highlight was the spaghetti - the spaghetti was amazing - how is spaghetti amazing? The pork chop was also one of the best things we ate all week, as a "yum" was uttered after each bite. The waiter was a little strange, as he told us the things on the menu he didn't care for, but the food more than made up for it. We have eaten at many great places in Vegas, and like to try new places, but Scarpetta is one of those we are sure to repeat.
Scarpetta is absolutely amazing. The food. Oh my the food! From the 5 different breads and creamy butter to start, through beet salad, and a stellar basil infused spaghetti- I loved ever last bit of flavor this place packed in. Portion sizes are perfect, flavors are balanced and the service is top notch. Even the tables are perfectly placed so everyone at a four top can see the Vegas strip/ Bellaggio fountains from two tables away.
