    The food & service is excellent at this classic red sauce Italian restaurant. Be sure to try the meatballs which are delicious. The Lemon Chicken is also a must try.

    Legendary meatballs. Uncle Vincent's Lemon Chicken. World famous cheesecake. Neapolitan pizzas. And oh, that amazing jukebox. Dining at Rao's is something that belongs on every bucket list.

    Love the Pasta with red sauce - pair with one meatball and a glass of wine (wine all overpriced - be aware!) and you have one of he best meals in Vegas !

    Pear and Ricotta purses are so yum! Try them. They are both buttery and sweet. If you are dining with kids split the shells. They taste like ravioli your kids would be used to.

    The specials are always great. Tried the Gnocchi special with crispy pancetta. Addictive. Grilled veg and also the crispy potato sides - great to share.

    #FabuLIST ravioli purses is one of the best and unique dishes I have ever had at an Italian restaurant. Also loved the meatballs and baked clams.

    One of NYC's hottest hotspots, Rao's opened up a second branch in Vegas with similar results - this popular restaurant offers traditional Italian classics, like meatball pasta, and even a bocce court!

    Ate at the bar because without a reservation it was 45 min wait. Full menu at the bar, I had the pork chop, wife had the ravioli...BEST Italian meal we have ever had! Such incredible flavors!

    Stromboli was excellent, music was good, service was prompt and friendly. Kinda pricey (like everything else around here), but I'll definitely be coming back.

    With winey baked clams and succulent veal chops, the Vegas outpost of a New York City landmark is the best red-sauce joint in town. Read more

    I lived on pear and ricotta purses in Florence... this is the only place I've found them served in the US! But the cranberries are an unnecessary addition...

    For a remake of such an iconic NY eatery that's rumored to have turned away eli manning after a superbowl win, i have to admit I have had Bolognese equally as good at olive garden..

    Unlike Rao’s in Harlem, NY, you’ll be able to get a seat at this hot spot. It’s a great place to take clients. But be careful, the meatballs are sinful, just like the city they’re being served in.

    The "side" of meatballs is nearly a meal in itself. Great for splitting btw 2 people as sides. Went wonderfully with the Shells & Ricotta.

    So if you are in Vegas, you should never order seafood. So the linguini and clam sauce is a no no. Horrible. In fact the only things good are the service and the marinara

    Overrated! Veal was dry & overpriced. Antipasti was excellent though as was the wine. Not worth the money.
