Once upon a time in the land of Las Vegas, family- run, fine- dining establishments dotted the landscape. They served memorable, special occasion meals to local residents and high rollers alike. They were part of the fabric of this unique locale and a trip to Vegas always included a stop at these dining meccas.
Much has changed in the land of gaming, and most of these fine family eateries were gobbled up by the giant conglomerates who brought in world-renowned chefs to beef up the dining scene. One mighty clan held fast and furious to its reputation and today exists as the longest-running, single-family fine dining restaurant in Las Vegas. And that is Ferraro’s Restaurant.
The Ferraro tradition of excellent food served with class, style and family pride is alive and thriving even in the face of the never ending hype about the latest new celebrity spot on the Vegas dining scene. No small feat for team Ferraro who will greet you warmly and make sure that you feel like family.
As you walk in, on your left, you encounter an intimate, supper club setting bathed in shades of red where the bar and live music entertain nightly . To your right, is one of several intimate dining areas with plenty of space between tables. This is a restaurant where the food, not the background acoustics takes center stage.
Of course, the proof is in the tasting. Lunch is probably the best value in the city, and dinner is a fine dining feast.
Along with some of the most delicious Italian food around, the wine list, steeped in great Italian vintages is a rare treat for the connoisseur.
Chef Mimmo Ferraro is always in house, either in the kitchen or greeting guests, to be sure that his signature dishes will be consistently served to his specifications. His eclectic Italian menu runs the gamut of regional Italian styles and includes all the classics plus the chefs’ signature dishes— including: oven roasted dover sole picata; lobster and asparagus filled ravioli champagne risotto with fresh black summer truffles; and hand rolled carpaccio di Manzo, thinly sliced beef, arugula salad, shaved parmesan and truffle oil. His osso bucco is lendary, but be sure to save room for his nutella crepes for dessert.
When you observe satisfied customers, many who are loyal repeat guests, hugging and kissing Chef Mimmo in appreciation for a wonderful meal, you know you are in good hands. Treat yourself to a Las Vegas tradition. Enjoy the food and hospitality of Ferraro’s.
