The restaurant brings modern Italian cuisine to Las Vegas in an elegant restaurant that still maintains its rustic roots. Scarpetta is an Italian expression meaning “little shoe” or in food, it’s the bread that is used to soak up a dish. You will have plenty to soak up at Scarpetta. For starters, walk past the long bar area and into the main dining room, where the view of the Bellagio fountains sets the Italian mood. Then, order a bottle of your favorite Italian wine or let the Master Sommelier pick one out for you. You have to try the bread. The bread basket varies, but the foccacia is delicious and served with butter, olive oil and eggplant caponata.
Here are a few of Scarpetta’s most popular dishes:
Spaghetti – This is the signature dish of Scarpetta, and by far every diners favorite dish here.
