Back in the days before the internet and social media, the popularity of the iconic Piero’s Italian Cuisine in Las Vegas was shared the old-fashioned way: word of mouth.
Today in the digital age, word-of-mouth takes on many new forms via social media, websites and online review sites.
Piero’s Italian Cuisine, perfectly located in the heart of Las Vegas and seconds from the Strip resorts and Las Vegas Convention Center, has a long history of positive vibes and reviews from locals, visitors, business leaders, celebrities, athletes and just about everyone who experiences one of Las Vegas’ longest standing and most successful dining institutions.
Here’s a sampling of recent reviews from TripAdvisor.com:

“We hosted an event here, and it is a remarkable venue to host events! The staff were truly fantastic, and were all consummate professionals. In particular, Theresa, was truly outstanding, and we thoroughly enjoyed working with her! I would definitely recommend Piero’s, as it has wonderful ambiance, incredible staff, a great location (right across the street from the Convention Center), and a large selection of food and beverages.”

A dear friend said, in Vegas…Piero’s. He’s brilliant! Service was remarkable, exquisite timing, at my request. Ian, was outstanding. Ok, I had the “garbage Caesar salad”, ohmigosh! Shrimp, avocado, hearts of palm and tomato…delicious! Osso Bucco…melt in your mouth. Can I add, the pasta side…no words. Yum! They asked if I had room for dessert, thought it had been served…creamed corn side. WOW! Special evening.

Dinner at Piero’s is like going back in time to fine dining at a classic restaurant in NYC! This is an old school place which oozes style and memories. You may find yourself channeling a scene from “The Sopranos “,…or a time when everyone dressed up for a “classy” dinner! The service, menu, and wine list is VG and the prices are not crazy like in hotels on the strip. The shrimp cocktail was enormous! I had one of the filets with green peppercorn sauce in years! My wife’s veal chop was tender and perfectly prepared. I can’t recommend this place enough ,… whether for a group dinner or a romantic table for two! Reservations a must. Don’t miss this classic!
Travel and food reviewer Dana Vento, who is published nationally and internationally, wrote:
“I found what I would consider the best authentic and traditional Italian food I have experienced in a long time off the strip in Vegas! Signature Italian dishes, an incredible ambiance and white-glove service (reminded me of a cruise ship), are just a few highlights of this Italian dining experience in Vegas. The best authentic Italian cuisine in Vegas destination is also iconic. Many a movie star has dined here and in fact, Robert DeNiro & Sharon Stone filmed a segment of ‘Casino’ at this restaurant and we sat at their table!
Get dressed up, glitter, glimmer, set your GPS for Convention Center Drive right off the Vegas strip. Lavishly live the best authentic old-school Italian dining experience in Vegas out loud, it’s time to eat well or ‘mangia bene!’”
Piero’s managing partner Evan Glusman appreciates the praise and it inspires he and his experienced team.
“Word of mouth, whether old school or new school, is how we gauge our excellence and quality, and it is very rewarding to read and hear comments from near and far,” says Glusman. “It doesn’t get any better than a friendly ‘cheers’ when people are in the restaurant, but then when they leave and share our story with friends and family—or reviewers take time to recognize our efforts—that is most gratifying.”
