We wanted to try some good Italian food while in Las Vegas.  I went to my go to chef Mario Batali because I love his restaurant Babbo in New York.  Babbo has delivered knock out dinners on several visits to the Big Apple and I was hoping to get that same taste in Las Vegas.  The restaurant is located within a little section of The Venetian that is like a little restaurant row.  We entered this super busy space and were quickly greeted by a smiling hostess.  As we sat down the waiter was there to greet us.  He explained the menu and offered some suggestions.  The water girl was fantastic.  Our glasses never went below half way and she was there to refill them.  We found out later that she was a Hawaii girl who went to High School in our great State.  We started our meal with Grilled Octopus ($21).  The Octopus was perfectly cooked but lacked the flavor of some recent Octopus dishes I have enjoyed.  The Beet Salad ($15) was a huge disappointment.  Pretty tasteless.  The Beef Cheek Ravioli with Black Truffles and Crushed Duck Liver ($26) was super rich and overwhelmed with the taste of truffles.  The Rabbit Confit Crespelle with Rucola and Radishes ($19) did not have much taste and I could not figure out where the Rabbit Confit was.  The star of the night and what I highly recommend is the Spaghettini with Garlic Chives, Sweet Garlic and One Pound Lobster ($36).  This dish delivered big time on flavor.  The pasta was home made and the lobster was cooked to perfection.  I would return for this dish and this dish only.
