Just a couple of weeks ago Ciro's Italian restaurant opened just a few steps from our apartment in the 16th on Rue de Siam and Rue de la Pompe. They have been an instant hit and have been packed almost every night. They renovated the interior from an old bar which had previously been there and the result is a sparkling Italian interior. The food is really good and inexpensive. As a result we have now eaten there several times.
We were looking for an Italian restaurant near the Trocadero and came across Ozio. We have now eaten dinner there and had to go back again for lunch because we loved the food. The restaurant interior could be in San Francisco or NYC, staff was friendly and helpful in English, the food was great, and the price was very reasonable. The pizza is similar to that found in Naples and there are many varieties. We had the Margherita pizza, spaghetti Bolognese, and gnocchi for dinner with a large group and a few days later tried the Bufala pizza and beef carpaccio with lemon and arugula for lunch with just the two of us. Both meals were delicious and we plan to make this our go-to Italian restaurant.
Whenever my friends visit Las Vegas, they want recommendations on local restaurants, so I thought I would include four of my favorite Italian restaurants in Las Vegas. Of course you can find many more, but we thought this list would be a start.
