Find Your New Favorite Italian Spot

The Las Vegas dining scene evolves constantly. If you’re a fan of Italian cuisine and looking for somewhere special for dinner, there are some fabulous new places on-the-Strip and off-Strip to explore. Some of these places have been open a couple of years now, but here are the top picks of new Italian restaurants in Las Vegas:

Mother Wolf

Location: Fontainebleau
Hours: Daily from 5:00 pm – 11:00 pm

Mother Wolf is an elegant, traditional Italian restaurant in Fontainebleau. It is already become one of the most sought out meals since it opened along with the rest of the property in late 2023.

The menu consists of a large selection of Roman-inspired appetizers, pizzas and pastas. There are a limited number of entrees including whole fish, dry-aged rib-eye, whole chicken, tuna steak, lamb chop and ribeye-cap.

The restaurant has a large private dining room with a 32-guest capacity.

PREMIER TIP: Bring your wallet or you will be washing dishes for a very long time! In other words, it’s on the pricey side


Location: 335 Promenaded Pl. in Downtown across from The Smith Center
Hours: Daily from 11:00 am – 10:00 pm (24/7 for the bar and gaming area)

Vic’s is both an Italian restaurant and jazz club that also includes a sports lounge. The restaurant is proud to feature award-winning jazz artists, both local and international.

Vic’s offers casual Italian-American staples, focusing on fresh ingredients and new flavors. Their exhaustive menu includes freshly-made pasta, and basically every item that would be included in a family-style Italian restaurant in your neighborhood (and then some).

PREMIER TIP: If you plan to eat at Vic’s before a show at The Smith Center, make a reservation far in advance.


Location: Durango Resort & Casino in The Southwest
Hours: Sunday – Thursday 11:00 am – 10:00 pm, Friday – Saturday 11:00 am – 11:00 pm

Fiorella pasta bar is a mini-restaurant and bar located within Durango Casino & Resort’s food hall. The menu includes hand-made pasta, baked pasta, extruded noodles (whatever that means!) and a few appetizers.

They take reservations, which we recommend on Friday/Saturday evenings.

PREMIER TIP: We found the rigatoni with sausage ragu to be extremely tasty.


Location: Chelsea Tower in Cosmopolitan
Hours: Daily from 5:00 pm to late (happy hour cocktails in the lounge from 4:00 pm – 5:00 pm)

Superfrico, which opened in September 2021, provides a unique dining experience. The ambiance includes very short performances such as singing and juggling. Superfrico is not a supper club though like Rose Rabbit Lie.

Superfrico’s menu is a tribute to Italian-American classics. Popular choices include:

  • Stinging Nettle Cavatelli
  • Beef Cheek Ravioli
  • Chicken Parm
  • OG Square Pizza (the cheese on all of the pizzas is cooked to the point of being crispy)

Art fans will love the millions of dollars of artwork spread throughout the restaurant.

Superfrico is located next to The Opium theater space.


Location: Resorts World
Lunch Hours: Daily from 11:30 am – 3:30 pm,
Cicchetti Hour (small bites): Daily from 3:30 pm – 5:00 pm
Dinner Hours: Daily from 5:00 pm – 10:00 pm

Brezza is a modern Italian restaurant that features coastal Italian food. It was given The National Restaurant Association’s “Best New Restaurant” award.

Seasonal, sustainable ingredients inspire the menu. The menu is approachable and casual with some higher-end entrees. Items include appetizers, a raw bar, a seafood platter, pastas, whole fish, short rib and dry-aged steaks.

There is space for private events.


Location: The Uncommons in The Southwest
Hours: Sunday – Thursday 5 pm – 9 pm, Friday – Saturday 5 pm – 10 pm (take out available for lunch only)

Amari is the third restaurant from chef Nicole Brisson and hospitality guru Jason Rocheleau. Amari brings ‘nostalgic yet refined’ Italian cuisine to Vegas.

Amari is a full-service Italian restaurant and wine bar/shop located in the Uncommons across the street from the Durango Casino & Resort. In our opinion, Amari has the best American artisan-style pizza in Vegas. Besides the pizza, we like the wine list and the wines by the glass. So if pizza+wine is in your repertoire, this is your place to go in the Southwest.

Amari has space for private events.

Las Vegas’s vibrant culinary scene boasts countless Italian restaurants, and more join the list all the time. Whether you want to enjoy Italian classics with a view of the Las Vegas Strip or want to explore some of the incredible new additions off-Strip, take a trip to these eateries and enjoy a slice of the good life.
