La Birra and Cantinetta are the bar stations that feature a handpicked selection of imported and domestic beer and wine along with artisanal cocktails. The restaurant combines real Italian food with fresh seafood prepared, as it would be at a traditional Italian market found on the coast of Italy.


The menu is divided into stations, where guests can enjoy dishes from our traditional, family-style dining such as the Yellowfin Tuna from our Crudo Raw Bar or a high quality selection of Cured Meats and Cheese from our Saulermia and Formaggio stations complete with a bottle of our finest red or white wine from the Cantinetta. A la carte dining is also available, Guests can choose from Pasta Mista station and twirl their fork around some homemade pasta like our Plin Ravioli or Gnocchi. The most noted stations are Macelleria and Pescheria. The Macelleria features a delicious 10oz Filet Mignon cooked in a “Josper” oven, found only in two restaurants in Las Vegas. The Pescheria, where the fish is prepared fresh daily, features a Grilled Swordfish cooked in white wine, onion, tomatoes and parsley. Mercato Della Pescheria brings the flavor straight off the coast of Italy to your table. All dishes created by Chef Francesco Schintu.


As with all V&E Restaurant Group restaurants, the décor is curated by artists to reflect the true ambiance of the concept. Service is key to the group and so the servers are highly trained to educate the guests on the experience and are welcome to tour the stations for an authentic experience. V&E Restaurant Group is ready to leave their mark on “Sin City” and they are sure Mercato della Pescheria will stand out from the rest with its unique concept.
