We dined here on April 12, 2014. It is located in a strip mall center at 6020 W. Flamingo Road near Jones Blvd. (located behind Arby's). They have two store fronts.

My Fiancée likes this type of Italian cooking but, I am not a big fan of this style Italian.
She ordered a glass of Flonari Chianti ($8.50/glass) to start and they served us a basket of Garlic Bread (1st Free). I asked for plain Italian bread and my fiancée agreed, it was better than the Garlic Bread served.

We started with a small House Italian Salad (large enough for 2) ($7.95) - Very good.

My fiancée ordered the Spaghetti Carbonara with added peas ($13.45) and I ordered the Chicken Parmigiana (breaded and fried) with Rigatoni and Meat Sauce ($15.05). We also ordered two dishes to-go. Spaghetti with meat sauce add 2 extra meatballs ($14.05) and Rigatoni Special (pieces of sausage and meatballs with onion and peppers) ($12.95).

My fiancée didn't care for the spaghetti pasta served with her Carbonara. My Chicken Parmigiana breading was seasoned with something I didn't care for. They did serve 3 pieces of chicken with my dish. You can also have the Chicken Parmigiana without breading, if you like yours that way.

Total Check was $86.97, with taking two complete dishes home. I also took home some of my Chicken Parmigiana and left over Spaghetti Carbonara.

Rates a Return: Not really. I would take a pass and pick another place like the "Bootlegger Italian Bistro". I like their Italian and Garlic Knots much better.

Definitely worth a visit if you're in Vegas. You might be lucky if there's only two - they have walk-in tables; otherwise, make a reservation.

Very reasonable - $10.50 for spaghetti with meat sauce or meat balls.

Regular anitpasto for $9.25 will feed two.

I really liked the food. Service was great.

A mere 10 minutes from the Strip, nestled in a small strip mall behind the Arby's on Flamingo, you will find Italian food that easily matches or surpasses what you'll find among the countless casinos. And, you'll save enough $$ to have dinner again the next evening for what you would have paid for one meal on the Strip. Nora's is not for the timid appetite. In this smallish, casual family setting you'll receive generous portions of rich, full flavor pastas will more than fill even the most voracious appetite. We enjoyed gnocchi and the baked penne pasta. Both were hearty, bold, rich and ...fantastic.
