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. Nove Italiano is open Sunday through Thursday from 6 – 10:30 p.m. and Fridays and Saturdays from 6 – 11 p.m. For additional information, please visit www.novelasvegas.com or call 702.942.6800.
