    Tell me about Fellini's

    So I'm staying at the Strat and I found a deal for Fellini's via TravelZoo. http://www.travelzoo.com/local-deals/Las-Vegas/Restaurant/145539/Fellinis-Italian-Restaurant

    Essentially the price covers the cost of the entrees, and throws in two soups or salads and a dessert to share. That seems like a good deal for $55. They'll add an auto 18 percent gratuity on the full menu price, of course, because serving such a meal is inherently worth $18. Add in a couple of glasses of cheap wine and the $55 meal is now looking like it'll be in the $90 range.

    It's a good deal based upon the menu prices, but I'm interested in knowing what people think of the overall value. I assume it's a nice restaurant, with an upscale ambiance. That's worth something, no doubt. And steak dinners in casino steakhouses don't come cheaper, I know.

    So those of you who have dined there, would you do it again?

    Ribs, ribs, ribs

    I can't pass up the two-for-one BBQ dinner at Ellis Island, but given I'll be downtown two nights, I'm eager to try the new BBQ joint at Binion's. I'll do some online research myself in the days to come. Is it as challenging to be seated at the Binion's BBQ as it is at EI?

    That brings my total to 3 questions thus far..... 7 to go, I think.

    Fellini's is one of my go-to places when I've got guests in town. The steaks are surprisingly good (considering it's an Italian restaurant). And, I've always been pleased with the service and the value. One of the ways I save money is by getting the House wine in a large carafe.

    I have not eaten at the new BBQ joint at Binions, but when I was there last month it was never crowded.
    1) I was there during the week (M-Thur).
    2) it was usually early evening (5-6PM) when I was in the area.
    3) it's not that easy to find unless you know what you're looking for, so that's an advantage.

    Fellini's is excellent. Great choice.

    As for ribs, we prefer Memphis on Warm Springs, but BBQ is soooooo subjective and what I like may not be what you like.

    thanks for the info. i think one of my biggest challenges is going to be hitting up every restaurant i want to visit during my 96 hours in town.

    i'm still trying to determine if i'm going to the prime rib loft at the Orleans on this trip. i never ate there all the times i stayed at Orleans, but after my last trip i determined i need to try it. since i'm not staying there, i might have to settle for prime rib somewhere else.
