So Chart House was closed but they sent me here saying there kitchen was open till 11pm on a Sunday. There was no fabulas greeting at the door what so ever. Kia the female bartender didn't know the difference between iodized salt and sea salt. I said what about margertia salt? She said oh we have kosher salt and I looked at her like wtf girl that is sea salt....some one please give this female a lesson in kosher educate. I was beyond let's just was great, margarita pizza was delicious but the crust is micro thin it needed to be examined under a microscope, very weird and has yet something to be desired. The manager guy was a very sweet man but I will just leave my opinion online and have u guys judge for yourself.

Very good food. I had the rigatoni with meatballs. Food was excellent . Service was slow. But I dined solo and sat in the bar area . Only one waiter for the whole bar area. So I can't fault the waiter . As he was hoping all around . A little pricey . But it was really good.

I'm spoiled by having one of these locally but it is an exceptional restaurant with great ambiance. Afternoon and poolside can be a dream. It can also make you want to purge depending on the nearby pool whales. Get a Landry's select card if you plan to eat at multiple Landry's restaurants. Great benefits. Several opportunities to use in Vegas.

Amazing food! We loved the Veal Piccata and the pasta that came with it! Yummy sautéed spinach as well. Everyone in our party loved the place!

This place can be a little hit and miss, but mostly hits. Most pizzas are great, and pizza is $7 from 2 to 6!! Really nice location, too- right by the pool.

Came for dinner on 15jun11 with a very large party (16) for my wedding rehearsal dinner. Accommodated right away in the alcove overlooking the pool area. Pushed 2 tables together and let the party begin!! Waitstaff very good. Patient and not only didn't mind the we asked for separate checks but anticipated it and were ready. Food was out of this world. Well presented and very delicious. My family and I recommend this place highly and are very glad we chose it for such a special occasion.

My herb chicken pizza was fine. Not great, not bad. Just fine. It was also inexpensive, so there's that.

Nice ambience, but the food is wholly unremarkable (though at least edible) and the service was lousy. At 5PM the manager summoned all employees into the kitchen for a staff meeting, which the waiter said was his regular timing. So you call all your servers away when the dinner rush arrives? What? But if you want Italian on Fremont, it's either this or Pasta Pirate at the Cal.

5 Stars Bonnie March 14, 2010

Best meal we had in Vegas. Not as pricey as the strip. You get what u pay for.

5 Stars Cody January 23, 2010

Best lasangna I've ever had in my life!!! Food presentation excellent, taste out of this world, and the waitstaff and bartenders were the best in the business. Wanted to sample other places while I was downtown but ended up eating here two of the three nights I was in town. Well worth it.

Had lunch here in March. I had an Italian style foccacia sandwich with parmesan fries. Food was great and the room overlooks the pool.
