Venue Info

Known For

Italian

Conveniently located within the Paddock Shops, this Roman-styled spot offers authentic Italian food and a dining experience that is at once relaxed and refined. Everything from the sauce -- whether mariana, orange buerre blanc, or alfredo -- to the pasta is made in house, ensuring ultimate freshness, and you can taste the difference. Of the appetizers, the baked goat cheese with parmesan crostinis is the obvious standout; insofar as entrées go, it's impossible to go wrong with the scallops arrachain. Whereas other Italian spots rely on wine lists (which isn't to say the offerings at this one aren't equally reputable), Martini boasts a solid cocktail program, with a mixology-driven menu that includes classic libations and signature standouts like the "Moulin Rouge," a winning combination of Bombay Sapphire, red plum, and orgeat.
