B&B ristorante- (VENETIAN) LAS VEGAS
My boyfriend and I were craving Italian food so of course we had to try one of many Mario Batali’s Vegas restaurant the B&B Ristorante in the Venetian. Other than the fact that the restaurant lighting was way dim and made us sleepy, the service and food didn’t disappoint but it wasn’t spectacular either. I give it 3.5 stars.
Complimentary Chickpeas & Olive Bruschetta
First impressions matter and this was just whatever.
Field Greens with Trebbiano Vinaigrette $15
The veggies were kinda bitter but it felt healthier? This uber ‘green’ salad was hard to eat alone so we waited for our pasta’s to arrive and ate it as a side. People who like simple no fuss salads will enjoy this.
Pappardelle Bolognese $28
As you can see the portion size is created intentionally smaller for tasting purposes. Nicely cooked house made pasta with a modest layer of bolognese sauce. This was perfect as we wanted something light before we hit the clubs.
Beef Cheek Ravioli with Black Truffles and Crushed Duck Liver $26
We were expecting the texture of tender beef cheek meat in the ravioli, but we were surprised by the fine paste-like texture that we got instead. Don’t get me wrong it was different and made really well but we were secretly hoping we could’ve tasted the miracle texture of beef cheeks by itself. If we didn’t know better, we wouldn’t have been able to guess what were in those ravioli’s.
After dinner, we went to see Diplo and Skrillex kill it at XS.
