Vegas Eats – Olives at Bellagio

Recommended by a friend, Chef Todd English’s Olives in the Bellagio hotel is a casual but nice restaurant overlooking the fountains. I would have loved to sit outside but too bad it was like 108 degrees when we were there! The menu features salads, flatbread pizzas, pastas and entrees with a Mediterranean flair and lots and lots of – you guessed it – olives. Again I assumed their menu was available online so I don’t remember the exact prices of the items.

Here’s their lovely bread basket with crispy cheese flatbread, olive foccacia and herb rolls served with assorted olives and tapenade. This is such a nice selection I would have been perfectly content with this and a salad.

Hubby and I shared the Greek Style Baby Romaine Salad  (I wanna say around $12) served with a feta cheese phyllo triangle.

A Shrimp Pasta dish (can’t remember the name, around $22 or so) that was delicious.

Fig & Prosciutto Flatbread Pizza (around $16 or so) with gorgonzola cheese – I love combinations of salty and sweet flavors.

The food and service were lovely. One thing that struck me about Las Vegas is the wonderful service we encountered most everywhere we went, from the servers at the restaurants to even the rental car shuttle bus drivers. Just like Honolulu, Las Vegas is in the business of service so everyone here is truly professional. They know how to make us feel comfortable while coming across as sincere and courteous (not pushy or fishing for tips). Our server at Olives was a fine example of this.

This post concludes my Vegas report.

    I remember reading about this place when I was looking up places on the strip. Sounds good! That shrimp pasta thing looks yummy! I’ll try and remember that place next time we go…

    How was the crowd there? Is it better to make reservations, or you think walk-ins are ok?

      When we went, it wasn’t so crowded so we were seated right away. I think for lunch it’s OK, but probably better to make reservations for dinner.
