You don’t have to break the bank to have good food in Las Vegas, and at FiAmma, MGM Grand’s Italian trattoria, you’ll be treated to a whole slew of updated classics as sleek as the sexy interior décor of the Forbes Travel Guide recommended restaurant’s dining room (think plush chocolate-hued banquettes, polished wooden floors and bamboo sunburst lighting). Starters such as the crispy calamari, beef carpaccio and traditional antipasto ring in at $12 to $16. Don’t forget to get in your greens — salads cost between $12 and $16 as well. You won’t want to miss chef Pierpaolo Pittia’s hand rolled pastas; the short rib ravioli and Maine lobster gnocchi are among the most popular dishes, and those will cost you between $21 and $32. Fish dishes, such as the Mediterranean sea bass and grilled salmon cost between $28 and $34. For meat dishes such as veal chop Milanese and braised short rib run the gamut between $24 and $54. Side dishes to accompany your meal costs $7 to $8. And the desserts are not to be missed — including FiAmma’s signature tiramisu — and are worth it for the $10 to $15 fee. Of course, you can just get one to split them amongst the table, if you’re watching your calories (but why would you want to do that in Las Vegas?).
