With so many Italian restaurants in Las Vegas it’s hard to choose but if you want to go “old school”, you have to try Battista’s Hole in the Wall! When you walk into this classic Italian restaurant it feels like you are stepping back in time. Battista Locatelli opened this hidden gem behind the Flamingo Hotel in 1970 and the eclectic décor, memorabilia and menu hasn’t changed since. Featuring traditional Italian favorites like lasagna, ravioli, spaghetti and meatballs and so much more. All dinners include Minestrone soup or Italian salad, garlic bread, a pasta side, their homemade signature cappuccino and red and white house wine, and let’s not forget about the free parking.
And if you like background music with your dinner, the always entertaining Gordy Jaffe strolls around the restaurant with his accordion. Gordy has been entertaining Battista’s guests for 30 years.
If you get the opportunity to eat at Battista’s Hole in the Wall, you will experience years of Las Vegas history. Battista’s is authentic, affordable, fun and yummy and you can’t ask for more than that!
