<br />At each visit, the Rao's family wants it to feel as if yours is the only table in the room. The impeccable Southern Italian fare stems from the dishes' high-quality ingredients, such as house-roasted red peppers, freshly grated Pecorino-Romano and Parmigiano-Reggiano cheeses, Felipo Berio olive oil and certified San Marzano plum tomatoes imported from Italy. For more than 115 years, that's the way the family has cooked in their iconic New York kitchen, and tradition is alive and well at their Las Vegas restaurant.<br /><br />The time-honored staples include perfectly cooked pastas, risottos and the mouthwatering steak bistecca; cooked perfectly and sliced tableside. The classic veal chop is pan-seared and topped with a medley of hot and sweet cherry peppers.

"After having two of the better meals in my life at Ramsey Steak and Nobu's, I expected similar from Rao's. Their NY reputation is larger than life and their prices are commensurate with other highly rated restaurants in Vegas. Sadly (very sadly), the food was just OK ... Less than OK for the price. Flavors were consistent with cheaper Italian meals I've had, and nothing had a Wow factor."
