Overall, food is good, but it's nothing to brag about....especially for the price. Typical Vegas fine dining though. I will say that the atmosphere is great, and the upstairs area is one of the coolest rooms I've been in.

The place does not have a great view, but this is made up for in the quality of the food, the ambience is perfect for a business meeting

My host strongly recommended the meatball appetizer. The meatball is a one pound serving presented in a skillet. The meat was perfectly done and the sauce was very tasty. All he entrees are large so be careful when ordering as dessert may be difficult. Great service from "J squared".

If you want some amazing Italian food on the strip with a view Lavo is it! The service and food were amazing! First, you have to start off with "The Meatball" which is a 16 ounces of Fresh Ground Imperial Wagyu, Italian Sausage and Veal. Served with Fresh Whipped Ricotta. I am telling you this is amazing with all the seasonings playing together then you get the creaminess of the Ricotta. Next level Meatball. Then for pastas I could not just pick one so I got two. Haha. The first pasta dish was the Cavatelli Bolognese which is Sausage Bolognese Sauce, and Fresh Ricotta. Once again amazing flavor and the noodles were cooked perfectly. The second dish in my opinion is the best pasta dish and that was Spaghetti Carbonara which is Pancetta, Prosciutto, Bacon, Onions, Light Cream Sauce. This is one of the best pasta dishes I have had. You get the creaminess of the sauce then the saltiness of the bacon with the Pancetta. This was the money dish. For dessert we had the 20 Layer Peanut Butter Chocolate Cake which is devils food cake, peanut butter mascarpone. This cake was massive! The devils food cake was super moist. So, moist you can set the fork on the cake and the fork will just sink and cut you your own piece. Then you get the richness of the chocolate mixed with the creamy peanut butter that just melts in your mouth. Amazing, moist, very rich cake. You will not finish it. I do recommend that you sit outside on the patio where it is a better view and more intimate. The only knock I have for Lavo is that it is very loud inside the restaurant and you cannot hear the person next to you talk. They do have big portions but this is not a family style Italian style restaurant. Highly recommend.
