When two-time James Beard Award-winning chef Paul Bartolotta, who'd made his name at Spiaggia in Chicago, was approached by Las Vegas hotelier and casino mogul Steve Wynn about opening a showplace restaurant at Wynn Las Vegas, he agreed on the condition that he could fly in the freshest possible fish and shellfish daily, directly from the Mediterranean. Wynn agreed — which is why, today, some of the freshest seafood it is possible to enjoy in America is found in the middle of the Mojave Desert. The choices in this cool, multi-level restaurant include not just the expected sea scallops, mussels, swordfish, and such, but also real Italian vongole (clams), Mediterranean spiny lobster, wild turbot, red mullet, and more. Of course, there's good meat and poultry and plenty of pasta, too (the simple homemade square-cut spaghetti with tomatoes and basil may sound boring, but is a must-have). -- Colman Andrews

Foursquare Tips

  • One of my favorite places. -Jacqueline Laurita, Real Housewives of NJ
  • Bartolottas fresh octopus salad with fava beans, olive oil and lemon brings the Italian coast to the middle of the Las Vegas desert.
  • Chef Bartolottas 4-course tasting menu includes seared sea scallops w/ porcini mushrooms and butternut squash ravioli w/ brown butter, accented w/ amaretti cookies.
  • Here its safe to order fish in the desert because each week 1 1/2 tons are shipped in directly from the Mediterranean. The chef says the seafood here speaks Italian. Samantha Brown
  • Bartolotta is an oasis of seafood delights in the Nevada desert. Fish are flown in daily from the Mediterranean and presented whole at the table before preparation for the ultimate luxury of choice.
  • Buon mangiare... Vincitore di un premio... Buon appetito..
  • The food is incredibly delicious. Order whatever you want, it's gonna be sooo yummy!
  • Simply one of the best meals. Get the chef's tasting menu. The white truffle ravioli is the most decadent dish you'll ever eat.
  • Two and a half tons of seafood is flown in from the Mediterranean weekly and expertly prepared. Stick with the tasting menus to get a feel for a traditional Italian seafood meal. [Eater 38 Member]

  • Say hi to Rich behind the bar!

  • Rabbit pancetta app is delicious
  • Worst dining experience ever!!! I am so embarrassed for Bartolotta. I am from Milwaukee and I know they are better than this. This place sucks in every possible way.
  • Alguno de sus pescados, definitivo de lo mejor. Tambin el pulpo con arugula, delicioso!
  • Formerly Barelotta, still a great Italian Seafood Restaurant. One of my favourites in Las Vegas. Food is so fresh and the service is top notch. Love it
  • Never had a bad meal here. Love the seafood. See what is fresh.
  • As for a vegan and vegetarian menu. I personally love the artichoke salad and the farro risotto. Full menu and seasonal drinks upstairs at the bar. Spendy.
