RPM Italian Las Vegas
RPM Italian gets a lot of press and attention thanks to the high profile of co-owners Bill and Giuliana Rancic. Still, it is a complete, indulgent, Vegas-worthy experience that justifies the prices. The dining room's modern design is a dramatic improvement over the space's previous and short-lived role as the Slanted Door, while the menu offers an easy layout to build a meal with multiple components. Complement hot and cold appetizers with fantastic 600-day aged prosciutto (more melt-in-your-mouth than salty), six-inch pizzas, and small shareable pastas (especially stuffed options like Lobster Pansotti and Corn Agnolotti) to leave room for ambitious entrees. The Lobster Fra Diavolo is steamed and served without mess, accompanied by a Calabrian chili butter, while a Wagyu strip is cured in whipped gorgonzola for a funky, nutty flavor similar to what you'd get from dry-aging without diminishing the heft of the cut. A newly introduced Sommelier Experience is a multi-course menu that changes nightly while tapping into exceptional wines from the cellar.
