Cipriani Restaurant Review

:
About the restaurant & décor: Cipriani, which originally opened as Harry’s Bar in Venice, Italy, in 1931, is situated at Wynn Plaza, and is the Italian institution's first location on the West Coast. A nautical theme prevails, with portholes throughout (even in the restrooms) displaying a video of the ocean resembling the view from an ocean liner. Elegant touches include glossy wood pillars, terrazzo tile flooring, chrome accents, plush seating and floor-to-ceiling windows dressed with white curtains.

Likes: In addition to the food and atmosphere, other Italian accents come from the staff, many of whom hail from Italy. Although Wynn Las Vegas no longer offers free parking, your parking ticket for self-parking will be validated after spending a minimum of $50.
Dislikes: You can bring your own wine, but a steep corkage fee is $65 and you are limited to one bottle per table.

Food & Drinks: We highly recommend the carpaccio made from sirloin using a recipe created by Mr. Cipriani in the 1950s; eggplant Parmigiana, fried and baked and covered with tomato sauce and mozzarella and Parmigiana cheese; homemade potato gnocchi with cream and tomato sauce; and slow-roasted chicken “alla cacciatora” cooked with onion, carrot, tomato and white wine and served with mashed potatoes. Finish with the vanilla crème meringue, which is light and easy to enjoy after a big meal. The wine list includes 200 selections mainly from Italy, France, Spain and the U.S. and the Cipriani private label house wine, with options of Cipriani Prosecco Brut, Cancello del Sole Cabernet Sauvignon and Cancello Della Luna Chardonnay. Be sure to try their version of the Bellini, the classic drink invented in 1948 by Giuseppe Cipriani Sr., made with white peach purée and Cipriani Prosecco.
