About Giada at the Cromwell Las Vegas
Giada at the Cromwell was the first ever restaurant of celebrity chef Giada de Laurentiis. The Food Network’s “Giada at Home” host opened the Italian restaurant in 2014 with a menu that featured classic Italian recipes.
Today, Giada has become one of the favorite Italian eateries on the Strip. The restaurant has won accolades, including Wine Spectator’s Best of Award of Excellence and the Best of Las Vegas by the Las Vegas Review-Journal – beating out fellow celebrity Food Network Chefs Gordon Ramsay and Guy Fieri.
Giada de Laurentiis has since opened other restaurants in Las Vegas, including Pronto, a more fast, casual Italian eatery with Californian influences.
Giada is one of the best relaxing, welcoming Italian eateries in Las Vegas. Giada took a lighter touch with the decor than many other restaurants on the Strip, with a dining room done in serene neutral tones and wood accents.
We highly suggest you request window seating to have the best view from the restaurant’s huge retractable windows. Between the natural lighting and fountains of the Bellagio, the backdrop is gorgeous.
Giada aims to make the most of your dining experience. The dining room is elegant, and an open kitchen allows guests the pleasure of seeing Italian cuisine prepared fresh before it’s brought to their table. They offer a large bar and lounge, which is the perfect place to enjoy a pre-dinner cocktail. Giada at the Cromwell does offer a private room for special events. Contact the restaurant directly for more information on private dining and special parties.
With different menus for brunch and dinner, plus tasting menus and dessert, Giada’s restaurant in Las Vegas, NV, has a wide selection of menu options.
There are more than a few spots to grab a delicious brunch in Las Vegas, but if it’s simplicity, great taste, and wonderful experience you’re after, Giada is one of our favorites.
The brunch menu at Giada covers the spectrum from traditional breakfast dishes and sweet indulgences to savory and lighter dishes that hit the spot for a late-morning meal.
We love the Sunrise Polenta Waffle and the Lobster Hash (bacon, potatoes, peppers, onion confit, lobster, and two sunny-side-up eggs) for a traditional brunch-style dish. To satisfy a brunch-time sweet tooth, the Hazelnut Pancakes with strawberries and honey mascarpone is divine!
Of course, the menu consists of some more traditional Italian dishes and lighter fare, such as an arugula salad with candied lemon and crispy pancetta, a Grilled Cheese with heirloom tomatoes and lemon pesto, or a beautiful Fresh Pastry Assortment.
When it comes to dinner, Giada adds her signature touch to every dish. The menu consists of the celebrity chef’s most famous creations and other menu items that highlight authentic Italian cuisine prepared with a lighter touch. The dinner menu at Giada also perfectly compliments the atmosphere of the dining room, especially you’re able to enjoy a window seat with a spectacular view.
Start your meal with an appetizer of marinated olives, bacon-wrapped dates, shrimp cocktail, or Giada’s signature bread board. For the main course, choose one of the famous dishes that the restaurant is known for. Maybe try the Lemon Spaghetti, which is Giada’s signature dish. There are also other great pasta dishes on the menu. A few of our favorites include the Lobster Ravioli, Vegetable Bolognese Rigatoni, or the Orrechiette Pasta with Beef Bolognese. The bolognese is perfect and nicely balanced with not much ground beef.
If pasta like Lemon Spaghetti isn’t your thing, try something delicious like the Scallop Wild Mushroom Risotto or the Breaded Chicken Picatta with Fennel Salad. Carnivores will love sinking their teeth into the Bone-In Tuscan Ribeye served with a perfect sunny-side-up egg. The ribeye is a very generous 32 ounces, so make sure you don’t stuff yourself with selections from the fresh bread basket beforehand.
To compliment your meal, Giada at the Cromwell also offers a well-curated wine selection, a full bar, and a dessert menu of tasty Italian desserts. Giada’s famous Lemon Ricotta Cookies are among the highlights you don’t want to pass up.
Giada de Laurentiis is famous for her Lemon Ricotta Cookies, so you can’t go wrong with these raspberry sorbet lemon ricotta cookie sandwiches. Not too sweet and perfectly refreshing!
If you want to taste the best of Giada’s without the torture of narrowing your choices from the delicious menu items, Giada offers dinner-tasting menus that showcase the absolute best of their chef and culinary team.
The menu changes, so if you plan on visiting in the near future, it’s best to check the menu online to see what type of deliciousness is on it.
Currently, guests choose between an arugula or romaine salad for the first course, then move on to a second course with menu items that usually consist of delicate pasta and flavorful sauce. Choose a classic dish like Chicken Picatta or Salmon with Lemon Gremolata for the main course. Then there’s the dessert. The Chocolate Hazelnut Crunch Cake is one of our favorites.
Some favorite dishes from the past have included the Marsala Herb Chicken Meatballs, Lemon Spaghetti, and Chicken Cacciatore. No matter what’s on the menu, Giada adds her signature touch to every dish.
