The menu at MGM Grand’s Italian trattoria, FiAmma, is decidedly classic; chef Pierpaolo Piattia offers a variety of Roman-, Sicilian- and Piemontese-style dishes, and the desserts follow suit. That means you’ll find some pretty traditional sweet staples of the boot-shaped country here, including items like semifreddo al torrone (a nut-based nougat mousse), Sicilian cannoli and espresso laced tiramisu. If you’re looking for something faintly sweet with a kick of caffeine, the affogato al caffe is a shot of espresso poured on top of vanilla ice cream. But the clear favorite at this Las Vegas restaurant is crocchette, amaretto and ricotta doughnuts served with a variety of dipping sauces.
