Traditional Italian trattoria’s can be hard to come by in the states. However, this is Vegas and nothing is really that hard to come by here. The modern atmosphere of the dining room mixed with a lively bar area is perfect for a casual night out. Contemporary furnishings make up most of the décor while the walls are covered in unique artwork that resembles flames. (Fiamma is Italian for “flame”). The restaurant originally opened in Soho, and a touch of the northeast is infused into both the cuisine and the architecture. A split level dining room creates privacy but also reminds you of restaurants in New York City.
Cuisine is mostly traditional favorites like pastas, raviolis, chicken, and seafood. However, there are some slightly re-invented items on the menu as well. If you are in the mood for a delicious steak, try one of the fresh beef options cooked on an open flame (just like the restaurants namesake). For a little adventure try the Chargrilled octopus, short rib ravioli, or the grilled Kurobuta Pork Porterhouse. More traditional entrees include freshly cut spaghetti with kobe meatballs or sausage and prosciutto rigatoni. At Fiamma the dessert list is almost as long as the menu. There are several different types of gelato and sorbet that change regularly. Also taste the cream puffs, cheesecake, donuts, tiramisu, or panna cotta. What you may not expect from most classic Italian restaurants is a hip and modern bar scene that attracts young and sexy singles late into the evening. Sample a selection from the hand selected wine list either by the glass or by the bottle as you mix and mingle in one of the hippest and most delicious restaurants in town.
