Great Lounge?there are 3 living room sets to the left and the regular bar to the right. The lights are low and very loungey Sinatra was playing it definitely has a Vegas feel?this place is real not made up what you see is what you get great food & service very refreshing in a town that boasts about having great service and usually falls short?we started with Gray Goose martinis (nice size too) and ordered some appetizers we had the lobster martini for 2 it sounds CRAZY! I know but it was great mashed potato and lobster in a martini glass and also ordered the hot seafood antipasto that was good too. We will be back.

I was surprised that entry was through the bar area and no one was staffing the hostess station. On entering the restaurant proper we were directed to wait in the bar area until someone could seat us. The place is attractive, but neither upscale nor particularly intimate though we required a flashlight to read the menus. We shared a full size house salad that was described as field greens tossed walnuts, gorgonzola cheese, onions, carrots and berries in apple pear dressing. The salad was very good even though the gorgonzola was MIA and the berries were represented by 2 slices of strawberry. My wife?s entree of spinach lasagna in a tomato vodka sauce was prepared with fresh pasta and was melt in your mouth delicious. I chose the penne alla Dean Martin ? a thick pink vodka sauce with peas, chicken and prosciutto served in a martini glass. Just kidding about the glass, but there is an appetizer on the menu called a lobster martini that is served in 2 martini glasses.

I FOUND MY PLACE....the food is mostly Italian with a mix of French and Asian in some of the dishes....we started in the lounge in one of the three living room settings for a few martinis and then went into the dining room we had the ahi appetizer and the seafood antipasto (nice portion) very tasty. For entree I had the ribeye steak it was seasoned perfect and was very tasty too you even get complimentary sides of garlic mashed potato and vegetables with your dinner most steakhouses i have been to charge extra. That was nice. My wife had the chicken parmesan and said it was very good, of course I had a taste it and she was right, then we moved on to desert we ordered the bananas foster done table side over vanilla ice cream...a perfect ending. What can I say more? The food was great and the service was great!

They do have an extensive wine menu, though we do not drink wine.
There are many different types of appetizers to choose from. The entrees all sound fabulous, pasta, steak, chicken and seafood. We had the filet and the veal and both were just amazing. You get complimentary side dishes, ours was red cabbage and these amazing mashed potatoes. I wish I knew what was in it to make it so light and flavorful. The desserts are wonderful as well. As fantastic as everything was, just make sure you can handle rich foods. You can taste the butter in the entrees and desserts, but, that is what made it so good.
The staff was outstanding and there was even a gentleman playing some soothing tunes with his guitar.

After living in Vegas for a year, we have identified our most LOVED restaurant in town.
It's a quaint little restaurant, that is completely unassuming from the street. When you walk in, the atmosphere is old world italian, candlelight, with wonderful and consistent service! The have a FANTASTIC selection of wine and their in-house wine expert will help you find the perfect wine to go with your dinner.
The food is the BEST IN VEGAS. Marc comes to your table and tells you all about the specials and makes you feel like part of his family. The lobster bisque soup is the best in town. The Lobster Martini is something one should NOT miss. And even though it is an Italian Restaurant, the the way he prepares his seafood is why we really love the place. From the mouths of LOCALS ......this place truely is a GEM!!!
