Step into FiAamma, MGM Grand’s Italian trattoria, and you’ll certainly feel like you’ve made an entrance. With plush chocolate banquettes, sunburst-style bamboo nest lighting and polished wooded floors, this Forbes Travel Guide recommended locale has ultra-sleek décor designed by Yabu Pushelberg that lets you arrive in total Las Vegas style. But if you’re craving a bowl of chef Pierpaolo Pittia’s lobster gnocchi after an afternoon of sunbathing at MGM’s Grand Pool Complex, swap your bikini for a cocktail dress first. The look here is business casual, so men forget the baseball caps and ladies ditch the flip-flops; you’ll want to look just as stylish as the luxury surroundings.
The dress code at Fiamma Trattoria & Bar, which is located inside of MGM Grand Hotel & Casino, is business casual. When I had dinner there, I wore a dress complemented by a jacket and shoes with a kitten heel. Men usually wear pants and button-down shirts with a pair of loafers. You’ll want to dress the part at this establishment, which serves modern Italian cuisine under the guidance of executive chef Pierpaolo Pittia. I suggest ordering the Raviolini (short rib ravioli, black truffle crème and red wine reduction), which is one of the restaurant’s signature dishes. It is a fantastic (and very filling) portion. And when you pair the proper attire with phenomenal fare, it’s a guaranteed Sin City win.
