Mimmo Ferraro’s Restaurant, Las Vegas
Mimmo Ferraro’s is a bone fide authentic Italian restaurant serving some of the best food in town. It is always nice to find a place where the locals patronize that is off the strip.
They are well known for their sumptuous Osso Buco. We started with an outstanding salad, Cappuccina con Gorgonzola, which is almost like a butter lettuce wedge with some extra.
We were particularly impressed with an incident over Allyn’s Fettuccini Pomodoro. Although it was prepared exactly as per usual, it was not prepared the way she prefers. The waiter heard the conversation and immediately brought out the chef. The chef professionally and kindly listened to her preference and five minutes later she had a fresh plate with her food cooked exactly as per her preference. They could not have been nicer.
Normally I stay away from dessert, but somehow tonight I shared their Hazelnut and Chocolate Crepe with Marscarpone Cheese served with Vanilla Gelato. It is the BEST.
One reason it is always so good and consistent is that Mimmo is always around. Tell him I sent you. Visit them online at FerrarosLasVegas.com.
