One thing me and my sisters wanted to do in Vegas was to dine at Giada De Laurentii’s new restaurant in the Strip (Cromwell Hotel) because it got good reviews and personally I really like Giada. I usually watch her Food Network shows and I have 2 of her cookbooks. I even went to Costco when she had her cookbook released and I waited in line to get it signed. I’m sort of a fan! This is her first restaurant so I figured I might as well check it out. The atmosphere was really nice, we were seated at the window so we got a good view of the Bellagio fountain and the Strip.
It was a pricey dinner for what we had (I think, the Hubs kinda disagree!). The food was good but the servings were kinda small for the prices ( I guess we need to expect that in a fine dining place). Although the food was good, Zach was unlucky because he didn’t like his order. He got the lobster ravioli (the servers recommendation) and it was pathetic. I tasted the ravioli and I can’t believe Giada would allow that dish to be served in her restaurant. The pasta was too al dente and BLAND and the lobster was overcooked! I wouldn’t recommend their lobster ravioli. Despite Zach’s order, we had a good experience and the service was fast. We will most likely be back here if we happen to be in Vegas but we’ll just skip the raviolis 😉
