I loved my first visit to Carbone at the Aria Resort in Las Vegas so I booked another reservation well in advance for this trip.  Everything was great with the food with the exception of the sticker shock when we received the bill and saw what items marked MP (Market Price) really cost.  Turns out the MP on the Fresh Fish (Dover Sole) and Lobster were $100 each!  While the dishes were good, I thought this was one of the biggest rip offs in my blog history.  That aside, we enjoyed the meal.  Started with a great bread basket that contains one of the best Garlic Breads I have ever tasted.  Probably could eat ten pieces of this bread.  The Spicy Salami which is served with your meal comes sliced thin and there is more than enough for the table.  Great flavor and hard to stop eating.  The Pickled Cauliflower is a nice contrast to the Salami and Bread.  We ordered the Shrimp Scampi appetizer and again it was Market Price (MP).  Turned out to be $45 for 6 pieces of shrimp.  Great flavor but c'mon $45.  The Octopus ($25) was grilled to perfection and delicious.  Our waiter who was at the table to steer us toward the Market Price items but missing when the bill came also suggested the Meat Balls ($18).  These were absolutely delicious and probably one of the best items we enjoyed on this night.  I would definitely order these again and found myself craving them so I am making homemade meat balls tonight for dinner.  The Spicy Rigatoni Vodka ($27) is fantastic and probably one of my favorite pasta dishes on this blog.  The kitchen split one order into three portions for our table.  The $100 Dover Sole was a bit fishy and not worth half the price.  Same with the Lobster which was good but nothing to rave about.  If you put the pricing aside, this is good food.  Service was ok on this visit.  Our waiter disappeared half way through our meal and we never saw him again.  Don't even think he said thank you.  Despite the service lacking fom our waiter and the Market Price sticker shock I still like Carbone and will visit them again and avoid anything that is marked MP unless someone else is paying.
