We were very excited to try Rao's after hearing about the legendary impossible to get reservations restaurant in NY. The food was disappointing - no special "family owned and operated" vibe going on here. It is a typical on the strip overpriced place that serves almost fast food like dishes - feed 'em and street 'em - kind of thing.... More

We are Italian and were so looking forward to great food. Chicken parm was overcooked and dry. It was served way too cool. Far from delicious. Rest of meals were good but not worth the exorbitant prices.

Everytime I venture to Vegas I always make it a point to get to Rao's. The meatballs are worth it for sure. They are as big as baseballs and you get 2 of them. The service is always impeccable. Make it a must.

Fantastic service and great food. The gnocchi with bolognese sauce was amazing and the espresso martini is the perfect dessert. Come hungry because it's a lot of food.

Really enjoyable veal picatta with creamy mashed potatoes made for a wonderful meal. Do order and share a side of spinach--sautéed and we'll seasoned.

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
