Scarpetta Las Vegas Reviews
Scarpetta leaves me speechless Feb 19, 2013
I am almost at a loss for words because I really was blown away by how amazing Scarpetta was! Walking in, the decor is elegant and modern with a rare view of the Strip. The restaurant has a beautiful view of the Bellagio and the dancing water fountains.
The dimly lit restuarant has a vast wine colletion on view opposite the Strip view. The menu offers something for everyone. We had the creamy polenta appetizer with truffle oil and mushrooms that received rave reviews from everyone that tried it. The heirloom beet salad had so many vibrant colors and was also a favorite. Do I even need to mention the bread basket? Probably, complete with focaccia and pepperoni bread, delish!
The short rib agnolotti was unlike anything I have ever tasted, the flavors were spot on. I ordered the plate of spaghetti, it seems so plain, I know. Yet when I tried it I almost fell off my chair. Homemade pasta with a tomato and basil sauce. Heaven help me, send the chef to my house every day to make me dinner.
For dessert I shared a amedei chocolate cake with almond gelato and it was the perfect touch to put this restaurant into the rankings of favorite places to eat at. I could easily sit in one of the cozy booths by the bar with friends and share dessert and wine.

It was a wonderful night that has left a smile on my face a day later. Visit, enjoy and remember what a great exerpeice it was.
