TERRA ROSSA Is Truly a One of a Kind Great Italian Experience!  

Executive Chef Dan Rossi is bringing hearty classics and rustic flavors to this beautiful Red Rock eatery.  Located on the west side resort in the old Salute Restaurant, this amazing place will serve you up the finest of dinners. With a beautiful outdoor patio, a separate bar, and a private dining room, diners will have a great evening feasting on magnificent dishes.  I got to experience it last night and was delighted.

We started with a beautiful drink that had a smoky taste and went to a White Negroni, made with Tanqueray. Our private room of 12 guests ordered everything family style. The high-end appetizer plates with both green and black marinated olives, fabulous parmesan cheese bites, salamis, and artichoke hearts with some spreads to go on the bread was the starter. There was a carpaccio plate, giant Gambari shrimps, and meatballs. Three rustic pizzas arrived, and then came the salads.  The Caesar was crisp and satisfying, while the Mista with shaved fennel and the Capresso were the perfect touch.  Tarantella pasta, rigatonis with meat sauce and spaghetti are all on the menu. The steak, Bisteca alla Fiorentino was a 28 oz Double R Ranch for two and was perfectly done on a grill. There are 8 veal dishes to pick from along with plenty of chicken and fish. The salmon looked excellent.

All bread is baked daily and they use only the very highest imported ingredients.  And don’t forget the desserts especially the Tiramisu.

Hours are 5-11 nightly, reservations at 702-797-7777. Red Rock Casino is magnificent, you might just want to stay a night there on your trip to Las Vegas.
