Executive Chef Geno Bernardo Celebrates Spring with New Seasonal Menu Items
at Nove Italiano inside Palms Casino Resort

Executive Chef Geno Bernardo introduces fresh and flavorful spring menu items at Nove Italiano inside Palms Casino Resort. With an array of new options for guests to enjoy, Nove dishes up savory entrées, delectable side dishes and a garden fresh salad.

Using ingredients from his local farm in Pahrump, Nev., Chef Geno entices appetites with the farm to fork salad, prepared with Nove’s private farm mixed greens and tossed with strawberries and goat cheese, and the spring brodo, a delectable soup made daily. For entrées, the menu showcases gilled Thai snapper, served with a colorful assortment of artichokes, fingerling potatoes and olives, and the mouthwatering veal osso bucco, plated with saffron risotto, pea shoots and gremolata.

An assortment of new side dishes are available as well, including broccoli di cicco, made with elephant garlic and crushed chili to enhance the flavor of the vegetable, and cauliflower bistecca, sweetened with cherry agrodolce, a traditional sweet and sour Italian sauce.

Nove’s signature cocktail, the Pomagranita, is a delightful blend of Ketel One Oranje, POM, Pama Liqueur and simple syrup, which pairs perfectly with selections from the spring menu.

Nove Italiano sits atop the Palms Casino Resort’s Fantasy Tower and combines inspired design, superb Italian cuisine and unsurpassed energy—not to mention some of the city’s most spectacular views. Named #1 Italian Restaurant in Las Vegas by Orbitz in 2009, Nove Italiano transforms perceptions of Italian dining just as N9NE Steakhouse, situated in the original Palms tower, revolutionized the American steakhouse. Created by Executive Chef Geno Bernardo, the menu offers a wide range of crudo (which means “raw” in Italian, often ceviche or sashimi), thin-crust pizzas, variety of steaks and a large selection of wine and premium cocktails. Nove Italiano offers the Pomagranita, a cool and sweet libation that combines Ketel One Oranje, POM, Pama Liqueur and simple syrup. Every Tuesday is local ladies’ night, where local females receive 50% off their entire food bill, as well as cocktails and wine by the glass. Every Thursday, Nove offers happy hour, where guests can enjoy $7 specialty dishes and cocktails in the lounge from 6 – 8 p.m. In addition, Chef Geno hosts an exclusive cooking class every other month, giving food enthusiasts an up-close-and-personal look at dishing up classic Italian fare. The restaurant is a unique blend of classical and modern elements, an intriguing combination that permeates both the dining room and the kitchen. Adjacent to the lounge is the main dining room, illuminated by dramatic LED Swarovski crystal chandeliers hanging from a multi-vaulted ceiling covered in high-gloss brass-and-steel mosaic.
