We could live on the bread and pastries of the restaurant's adjacent bakery-bistro that came to Las Vegas from Florence, Italy, by way of San Francisco.

Il Fornaio Restaurant Review

: This cheerful, 250-seat restaurant, with its high ceilings, white marble and blonde wood, turns out savory Northern Italian cuisine in its gleaming open kitchen, where copper pots and pans and wicker baskets hang from the beams. The eight-seat counter affords diners a close-up view of the chefs at work. An attractive bar spans one wall in the lounge; the patio overlooks a landscaped stream bordering the resort’s Central Park casino. Antipasto della casa for two or more offers a sampling of the specialties: bruschetta al pomodoro, spicy Italian salame, caponata, caprese, grilled artichoke, Grana Padano cheese, and green and black olives. Entrées include good pizzas, pastas, mesquite-grilled fish and rotisserie-roasted meats and poultry. We like the petto di pollo al peperoncino --- grilled free-range chicken breast marinated with sage, rosemary, thyme, crushed red pepper, white wine, Dijon mustard and lemon, served with spicy peperoncino sauce, sautéed organic spinach and roasted Yukon Gold potatoes. Braised beef short ribs is accompanied by soft polenta. Tiramisu, chocolate mousse with fresh raspberries, and sponge cake soaked with triple sec served with orange crème anglaise are among sweet temptations.
