Roughly translated, “A tavola non si invecchia” is an Italian phrase meaning, “At the table with good friends and family you do not become old.” To those of Italian heritage, food and culture go hand-in-hand. Some even say that there is no difference between the two.
Giada De Laurentiis, owner and proprietor of GIADA, the cornerstone restaurant of the boutique hotel and casino, The Cromwell Las Vegas, perfectly embodies this quote. Her namesake restaurant boasts priceless views, signature dishes, and a warm and inviting atmosphere, complete with huge retractable windows – all a brilliant reflection of De Laurentiis’ vision.
“When guests come to GIADA, I want them to feel like they are coming to my house for dinner,” said De Laurentiis. “All the details of the restaurant are near and dear to my heart. My family was a big inspiration and you can see their influence in the art, décor and dishes. Between the breathtaking view and the delicious food, I hope my guests will feel that GIADA captures the kind of atmosphere that brings that Vegas energy to life.”
Her menu embraces a Roman heritage, mirroring a passion for Italian cooking with vibrant, Californian influences. GIADA only utilizes the freshest ingredients to create a new take on the traditional Italian fare, while staying true to classics. Menu items include lemon spaghetti, marsala herb chicken meatballs, rosemary focaccia and lemon flatbread, and vegetable Bolognese rigatoni. GIADA adds a lighter touch to her dishes, all while staying true to classic Italian recipes. Her new breakfast menu features fresh squeezed juices and amazing dishes like the sunrise polenta waffles and salmon cake benedict.
Located on the second story of The Cromwell, above the most exciting and dynamic intersection in the world, De Laurentiis’ heart and soul can be felt in every piece of the restaurant. The goal is to make guests feel that they are in the chef’s home, dining with her and her family. “Mangia!”
Recently GIADA has expanded their brunch to include Fridays (in addition to Saturday and Sunday), due to overwhelming popular demand. Brunch fan favorites include the ever-popular Italian Chicken and Waffle and Sunrise Polenta Waffle dishes, along with an expanded selection of house-made pastries. As expected, there is also an accompanying beverage program with Limitless La Marca mimosas!
