Truly the Best Italian Restaurant in Las Vegas – During my recent stay in Las Vegas, I searched the web to find the best Italian Restaurant in the area. My time spent searching in GOOGLE paid off. Mimmo Ferraro's ranks up there with the top Italian Restaurants that I have visited around the world. Off course I had to try their famous osso bucco and I was very impressed. I am Italian myself, so it is hard for me find a red sauce that I like as much as my Mom's but Mimmo's was on the money. The service I received was also excellent. If you are looking for great Italian food in Vegas, I would highly recommend paying a visit to Mimmo Ferraro's.

mimmo ferraro's restaurant – Disappointed after the excellent reviews. First off, my husband and I do not eat veal so the house specialty osso buco was off limits. I started off with the ceasar salad and requested anchovies, very surprised to see that I was charged for this when the bill came. My husband ordered the fettuccine carbonara. Unlike no other carbonara we have ever had. I mentioned this to our server because I thought they had delived the wrong meal, fettuccine with a pink sauce. The waiter informed us they use paprika and cream. How odd! I ordered the gnocchi with bolognese sauce. The gnocchi was outstanding but the bolognese sauce was mediocre. Will look for another Italian restaurant to try next time we are in town.
Best Ever Italian Food – If you are looking for a great meal with great ambiance in Las Vegas, take the trouble to go to Ferraro's. I have been going to outstanding restaurants all over the US for many years and have never had a better meal. It began with the wonderful dipping sauce (olive oil, pesto and spices) and bread. The Caesar salad was very good, but the real knockout was the house special Osso Bucco. It is beyond good. I guarantee a meal you will never forget. The service was equal to the food. I gave it five stars only because I couldn't give it ten. We had dinner at Spago the night before and it does not compare to Ferraro's in quality of the food or service. I will never come back to Vegas without coming here.
Best Italian in Las Vegas – We have never had Veal better than this. The Osso Bucco was incredible as was the rest of our dinner. Our server & guide Corrado was extremely knowledgeable & very personable. He added to our wonderful dining experience. We grew up in an Italian/Jewish neighborhood in N.J. & know great Italian food. Ferraro's was highly recommended by our Casino hosts & they were right on. We will recommend Ferraro's to all.
The Ultimate Jackpot in Vegas! – We found this gem to be everything we expected and more! This restaurant offers a quiet and romantic getaway from typical Vegas. Mimmo's is not on "The Strip" which was a big bonus to begin with, no flashing lights or constant "bing, bing, bing" of machines. We were enjoying a night on the town without the kids and had a great experience. We were promptly seated in a cozy booth and were greeted by our outstanding waiter "Zoli". Zoli served us a lovely amuse bouche of rolled fresh mozzarella, prosciutto, basil and pine nuts, drizzled with honey and accompanied with a flute of Prosecco! It was a great prelude to our evening. We looked through the expansive wine list and decided on a great bottle for around $70 dollars. There are less expensive and dramatically more expensive choices available as well. We started our meal off with a great salad for my wife and an appetizer for myself. What an appetizer it was! Asparagus spears wrapped in many layers of prosciutto topped with melted fresh mozzarella and drizzled with aged Balsamic. It was served piping hot and I couldn't stop eating every last bite. It would be great to share as a couple or among a group of 4, but I did it all alone which I later regretted. My wife ordered the Osso Buco, Mimmo's signature dish and for very good reason. My wife was blown away! She said it was among the top 5 things she has EVER eaten. Large portion of Veal shank, fork tender in a sauce that was too good not the lick the plate for! I ordered the Evening Special "Seafood Medley Ravioli." It was a combo of Lobster, Crab, Shrimp and Scallops in stuffed house-made ravioli in a butter and sage sauce. It was delicious but I was getting full quickly (too much of the appetizer...). Zoli approached at the end of the meal to sing praises for dessert, especially the Tiramisu, but we unfortunately we had to save it for our future visit.
Miimmo's was tremendous, the food excellent and service was fun yet dignified! A must try!
Agressive Service – Our server brought the wrong dishes and opened bottles of sparkling water that we did not order. Of course, we were charged later. Server had a terrible attitude and got worse when we tipped him. He came out to the parking lot to ask why didn't we tip him more. After that he said "in the name of the restaurant you are no longer welcome here". We looked for a manager but it was 11.30pm and no manager was around. We left our business cards and until now we have not received a phone call. We know what is quality and service since my friends, me and my husband are Chefs and Front of the House managers of high end restaurants of 2 of the best casinos in Las Vegas... So, just a piece of advice, do not go there, is better to spend that money at a better place, were service is good (server are educated) and food is at least ok.
The Osso Bucco is Phenomenal -- You Will Yearn to Come Back, Guaranteed – The osso bucco is phenomenal and the accolades don't stop there. This award-winning restaurant is a must on any foodie's list. This is a restaurant that we have recalled fondly ever since our first visit there in the early 90s. In fact, every one of our visits to Las Vegas has included Ferraro's on our dining list... I just wish we could have dined there every time. Indeed, this is a pilgrimage-worthy restaurant!
Be careful when ordering – I ordered a veggie ravioli, but realized that the there was bacon pieces on it (the menu did not say this). Before ordering the main dish we rejected the complementary appetizer because there was meat in it. So, the server knew that we did not want meat on our food. Also, after I realized the bacon pieces on my ravioli I asked the server and I was told that those were "dried tomato." It looked like even the server did not know what was inside the dish. Be CAREFUL when ordering if you do not want meat on your food.
Incredible service!! – Had a wedding dinner for my daughter invloving a small group (12 people) last week. Everyone loved the food but even more so, the service. Our waiter Francisco did a fantastic job. He and his assistants served the bride and groom first, followed by the other women and then the men. They did a class job all evening and I will be going back there in December when I am attending a convention.
Even though the restaurant is three miles west of the strip on Flamingo road, you will find the short drive or cab ride worth it. Average price for meal including a salad was around $45 (excluding wine cost). Wine selection was good and there was also live music that wasn't
Prior to going there I called the restaurant and asked if they could supply a cake. I was told they don't normally do that but I was free to bring one in. I had a bakery deliver the cake and Francisco brought it out for the formal cake cutting and then they served the cake for us. Real class!
Thanks Francisco for helping make my daughter's wedding a success!!
ITALIAN FOOD/WINE LIST WORTH MOVING TO VEGAS FOR!!! – Hint: Download the 58-page winelist before you go and choose your dishes to go with your wine choices....then take a taxi away from the strip and be transported to "Italian Food Heaven"....Be prepared for the kind of meal that you will compare all other Italian restaurants against. Please try one of the two risotto entrees with someone (make that your appetizer)...then have the best Osso Bucco in the U.S. You just have to look at it and the meat falls off the bone!! I'm sure that everything else on the menu is wonderful (my wife always tries other things and she tells me so)..but I cannot keep myself from having this every time....the service is excellent, the owner comes out to check your happiness level, and the warmth and comfort of the restaurant is a wonderful change from the strip restaurants.
