If you’re looking for an escape from the hectic Las Vegas strip, visit Battista’s Hole in the Wall. Battista’s is its own Little Italy in Las Vegas, with traditional fare comparable to prominent Italian neighborhoods such as those in Boston or New York. Battista's has been serving customers with no frills and friendly service since 1970 and takes pride in their timeless atmosphere and personality. Check out this travel review video of Battista's:
As an exclusively Italian food establishment, Battista’s doesn’t disappoint. When you first walk into the restaurant, you'll see a menu written on the wall—a traditional touch that takes you far away from the bustle of the city. All dinners come with free house wine, although there is an extensive wine list if you’re looking for something more unique.
Dining is only available in the evenings, every day from 5–10:30 p.m. In addition to the house wine, all meals include soup or salad, garlic bread, a pasta side, and a homemade cappuccino. Pasta dishes know no bounds. Diners have the option to indulge in ravioli, lasagna, or spaghetti dishes with an array of sauces. All pasta dishes can come with a side of Italian sausage or meatballs, of course. Additionally, there are plenty of chicken, veal, or steak options to cover all the cravings of your dinner party.
