Unless it’s exploiting their sacred recipes for soul-warming Italian food.
Then we can look the other way.
Tuck a napkin in your collar for Buddy V’s Ristorante, an amply sized den of home-style Italian deliciousness. It’s at the Shoppes at the Palazzo, and it’ll be putting some meat on your bones come Monday.
Imagine if your grandmother’s house was 11,000 square feet of burgundy tufted-leather banquettes, classic tile floors and an exhibition kitchen. It’d... be a totally different kitchen. But the results would be the same—the kind of whole-chop veal parmesans and Sunday gravies that give meaning to that kissing-your-fingers thing people do.
Bring every red-sauce aficionado you can collect on your Vegas journey here. The Chianti shall floweth. The forks shall twirleth. The steak pizzaiola shall... probably be split between a few people. It’s huge.
As for dessert: yeah, you’ll want to make sure and leave room for that. See, the cannoli and the carnival-style zeppole and the rest of the pastries here are all from that Cake Boss guy. He’s actually running the joint.
You don’t want to know what happens if you say no to cannoli.
