Casa Di Amore doesn’t look like much from the outside, but the inside looks like an old-school hang-out from a mob movie.

Casa Di Amore has been a favorite with Las Vegas locals for 18 years. It's currently one of the city's highest-rated restaurants on OpenTable, and for a good reason!

The menu is full of authentic Italian dishes: Bruschetta, Shrimp Scampi, Manicotti, Pasta Carbonara, Eggplant Parmigiana, Lobster Ravioli, Veal Marsala, Chicken Parmigiana, and of course, plenty of pizzas. The complimentary garlic bread is an enticing preview of the quality of food that's to come.

This is the type of restaurant where you sit and stay awhile. The intimate layout, friendly staff, and inviting atmosphere make for a wonderful dining experience. There’s live jazz music every night that adds ambiance but won’t drown out the conversation at your table. It’s a lively setting that you’ll want to return to.

There’s a patio behind the restaurant that operates as a tiki bar. Why would a tiki bar be affiliated with an Italian restaurant? Well, at the start of WWII, Italian-Americans were considered suspicious because of the connection to their home country and its politics. In an effort to distance them from the fighting in Europe, many were sent to the South Pacific. While stationed there, they embraced the culture and brought the influence of the tropics back home after the war. Tiki Di Amore pays tribute to those who fought while serving up tasty island inspired-cocktails. 

Casa Di Amore, and Tiki Di Amore, are located on Tropicana just east of the Strip. They’re open for lunch and dinner Thursday through Monday from 11  to 4 am. You can enjoy some late nights here!
