La Scala Ristorante, named after the famous Teatro alla Scala in Milan, dishes out fine foodstuffs in the Italian tradition and healthy variations in the diet tradition. Using ingredients freshly plucked from the boughs of pan-ingredient trees, La Scala's lunch and dinner menus brim with pasta, fish, and vegetarian delights. For lunch, try the gnocchi alla Genovese ($14), a tribe of exuberant potato dumplings tempered with pesto sauce and pelted with pine nuts. When the dinner buzzard crows, adjust your eggplant intake valve for melanzane alla parmigiana ($18), or ask the attentive wait staff about La Scala's popular fish specials. The restaurant's rich colors and elegant furniture create a romantic backdrop for singing traditional whaling songs with a Valentine.
Villa Pizza’s menu offers more than 15 toppings to toss on freshly baked, homemade-dough-based pizzas that heat up any hockey-viewing party or air-conditioned igloo. Score a circular creation such as the barbecue-chicken pizza (sauced and diced chicken, red onion, and cilantro, $16.99 for 16”) or a Popeye-pleasing, herbivorous stuffed pie with fresh spinach, ricotta cheese, and layers of gooey mozzarella ($18.99 for a large).
Born in Avellino, Italy, and raised in Brooklyn, Pasquale Ciampa and his two brothers shared a love of great fare and culture instilled in them by their parents. All three now exercise that love of Italian cuisine in their own culinary endeavors, with Pasquale bringing authentic Italian recipes to Las Vegas by way of Spaghetti and Company. Homemade beef meatballs, simmered in marinara, and freshly baked italian bread set the tone for the expansive menu, filled with Old World delicacies topped with ricotta and parmesan, alongside New World buffalo wings and New York–style pizzas and cheesecake. A rustic dining room and light-strung terrace surrounds guests as they toast with Sicilian-style pies, and kids clamor to the kitchen to craft their own masterpieces during pizza parties.
