    All I know is that you need to make reservations a month or two in advance.

    All I have heard is positive about that restaurant.

    I thought it was great. Try to get a table with a view. The food is light and flavorful.

    My wife and I ate their last Sept on a Sat night at 9:00pm. Waited about 10 minutes for a table and were seated in along the front window facing the Bellagio. Best seat in the house IMHO, and we didn't tip or ask etc. The food was great, smaller portions ala tappas, but everything was above expectations. Ordered the Mortadella pizzette, not exactly knowing what to expect. Out comes a six - seven inch circle of flat bread with the a layer of Mortadella. Basically just a piece of thin sliced ham. Looked rather underwhelming, but we both thought about ordering another one. Such a basic item with so much flavor. Spaghetti with lemon/shrimp was really good. I would suggest ordering 3-4 items, a glass or two of red wine (A bottle if both drinking the same) and save room for the dessert cart.
    On par with many of the nice restaurants we frequent, and the view of one of the most expensive/exclusive corners in the world well worth it.

    Wow, a month in advance? Didn't know that, good thing the gf took the initiative and already reserved us a table. Now to decide what I want to order.

    Or a week if you are dining early midweek. Just don't expect to book Friday evening reservations Wednesday afternoon. The restaurant is truly a gem. The price point ain't half bad either, all things considered.

    We just had lunch there and we opted to sit at the bar instead of wait for 45 min. We were very impressed with the food . The wife went with the Chicken Marsala Meatballs with roasted wild mushrooms which I must say was very tasty, I myself went with the Lemon Pesto Grilled Cheese with heirloom tomatoes and
    prosciutto San Daniele. Both were very ,very good. To top it off we split the Zeppoles Citrus Infused Italian Doughnut . Service was great ,atmosphere was relaxed and we would definitely go back again. Portions were smaller but enough that I did not leave hungry. HTH

    This is one of those hyped Strip restaurants - the difference is that every bit of the hype is true.

    Does anyone know if the full restaurant menu is available at the bar during dinner hours? I know the bar has a separate lounge menu, but wasn't sure if the dining room menu is also made available or not (with the obvious exception of no tasting menu) Thanks!

    Just ate there in December and thought it was great! Also picked up a $10 match play coupon when paying at the bar before we were seated.

    I've been to Giada's for breakfast, lunch and dinner..........and enjoyed all of my meals. I like that they have small portions and encourage sharing. I would much rather have multiple dishes rather than 1 massive plate of food that would feed a family (eg The Cheesecake Factory).

    The view is fantastic and with the glass panels open........perfect!

    Went there recently. Walked in at 11:30 for lunch with no reservation. Lots of tables available. Very good food and nice setup. Free photo booth at reception. Bet most people miss that.

    I read a review where they mentioned the pasta dish was rather small. It was... but not "French Food" small. Just not like many italian places that serve a large serving.

    Good stuff.

    Wife and I've been three times. Three weeks before the last trip when I checked reservations, Dec 22nd to Jan 4th New Years was booked at night (5PM on) so we opted for 4:30 Jan 2nd. As it turned out, it was only about 30% full until the 5 PM crowd showed up. Enjoyed a nice long dinner with a great view. Food was excellent as usual. Photos are on my trip report.

    So if you don't mind starting 4:30, consider it an option.

    We've already booked a group of ten for my birthday in February.
