Restaurants in Las Vegas Worth Taking a Gamble On
5 Las Vegas Restaurants we bet you’ll love
While there are too many fantastic restaurants in Las Vegas to list them all, here’s our take on five of the best to check out during your visit

A paradise in the middle of the Nevada desert, Las Vegas is one of the most famous cities on the planet and its mix of casinos and world-renowned stage shows are just two of the reasons why millions visit year after year. If you’ve already arranged your Las Vegas attraction passes through us, the next most important thing is to plan which of the fantastic restaurants to visit during your stay. While there are too many to list them all, here’s our take on five of the best.

Buddy V’s Ristorante

We start our list with Buddy V’s, an establishment which has developed a fine reputation for the wealth of Italian classics found on its menu. Located in the Grand Canal Shoppes near the Palazzo, Buddy V’s is an absolute must for anyone passionate about Italian food; from classic pizzas to beautiful pastas, their menus look to offer something for all appetites.

After we got in touch with Buddy V’s, here’s what they had to say:

“Raviolis and Cannolis! That's the theme at Buddy V's Ristorante. Offering new twists on Italian-American classics and family favourites, the Buddy V's menu will also stay true to Buddy's baking roots with timeless treats.”

How much is it?

With salads starting from just $12 and pizzas from just $14, it’s not going to be a bill that’s likely to break the bank. The most expensive item on the dinner menu is unsurprisingly the Surf n’ Turf, although that would still only set you back $46! Here’s the menu.

Carlo’s Bakery

Having appeased the appetites of Las Vegas locals and visitors alike for more than a century, Carlo’s Bakery is undoubtedly one of the most famous establishments in the city and should certainly be pencilled into the itinerary of cake fanatics during their Las Vegas voyage. While they may not offer traditional meals, the sugar-based treats on offer will serve as the perfect pick-me-up to keep you going through the day.

Here’s what they said after we got in contact with them:

“Opened in 1910, Carlo's Bakery is renowned for its delicious creations, hardworking staff, and family atmosphere. Carlo's has spearheaded the recent custom cake craze and has garnered attention from a variety of media outlets, including being showcased as the setting for TLC's hit shows Cake Boss and Next Great Baker.”

How much is it?

For just a cupcake you can expect to pay around $3.50, although some of the desserts can cost as much as $20 each. While it is pricey, true cake connoisseurs will understand that the quality is well worth the dollars.

Lobster Me

If you love lobster, it’s almost a certainty that you will want to return to Lobster Me time and time again. A low-key eatery that’s got a real appetite for lobster, you can order anything from a lobster roll to a battered lobster tail on a stick – the latter aptly named ‘The Lobsicle’. Similar to Buddy V’s, Lobster Me is also located in the Grand Canal Shoppes – so keep an eye out for the best taste of lobster in the city. There’s also a sister venue inside the Miracle Mile Shops at Planet Hollywood, so there’s no excuse not to try a bite during your visit.

Here’s a few words from Lobster Me on why their project is so unique:

“For the love of lobster, Lobster ME was founded to change how people think about lobster. Featuring premium ingredients and sustainably harvested lobster from the cold, clear waters of Maine, Lobster ME offers made from scratch treats and a taste of New England in Las Vegas.”

How much is it?

As this is lobster we’re talking about, it’s not likely to be the cheapest fast food restaurant you will have ever experienced. The original ‘Maine Style’ lobster roll with chowder will cost as much as $26, but it’s sure to the best lobster roll you’ve ever tasted! Here’s a little look at the menu so you can decide what you’ll be having for dinner.


For an authentic taste of France after you’ve had a flutter on the casino tables in the Palazzo, paying a visit to Morels is something you won’t regret. While the restaurant only opened back in 2008, the menu’s rich, classic French cuisine quickly helped it develop a positive reputation and today it’s arguably one of the finest establishments in the city. As a French steak house first and foremost, the selection of meats on offer is second to none and whether you’re a big eater or more a fan of light bites, there’s something for you to enjoy. Other allures include the iced seafood bar and the selection of over 60 artisan cheeses and salamis from all over the world – how many more reasons could you need to book a table?


How much is it?

Morels provides an experience of elegance and prestige, and this is certainly reflected in the price. An example from the main course on the standard dinner menu is the Pacific Swordfish, which is served with Orzo pasta and a lemon & saffron vinaigrette – it will cost $39.

Biscayne Steak, Sea and Wine

Consistently ranked among the best steakhouses on the Las Vegas strip, Biscayne Steak and Wine is proof that a good steakhouse isn’t just about serving a delicious cut of meat. Located inside the Tropicana Casino Hotel and Resort, they aim to offer the full experience all patrons would expect from a high-end dining experience, from setting the perfect atmosphere to offering a wine list with over 200 choices. The wine list from Biscayne recently won Best Wine List of 2015 in the Las Vegas Review Journal Poll, a testament to the great efforts made by the restaurant. If you’re looking for high-end dining, book a table and prepare to be amazed.


How much is it?

It’s going to be a little more than what you’re used to paying, with a Caesar salad priced at $15 and an 18oz bone-in ribeye setting you back a whopping $59. However, you’ll soon realise that the quality is well worth the extra cost. Take a look at the menu for yourself by clicking here. If you’ve already experienced a classy tour of Las Vegas in a helicopter, dining at Biscayne is the perfect way to cap off a perfect day!

Bacio Italian Cuisine

Finally we have Bacio, the second Italian-themed establishment to feature on our list and one which won’t disappoint. Stylised as a traditional street-side trattoria in Italy and the sister restaurant to Biscayne, the fact that it’s such a small restaurant means that it offers an intimate dining experience and one where you can truly relax and enjoy each other’s company. Recently named the best Italian restaurant in Las Vegas and also standing among the top ten new restaurants in the city, it’s a fantastic place to eat.


How much is it?

Bacio is slightly cheaper than Biscayne, although dishes such as the vitello alla Milanese will still cost $45. Pasta dishes start from $22 risottos from $34. To see more of the menu, click here.
