Opened in Las Vegas in 1982, Piero’s Italian Cuisine quickly became a popular hang-out spot for politicians, celebrities, and even mobsters. The list of celebrity sightings include former Presidents George W. Bush and Bill Clinton, and frequent guests like Blake Shelton, Carrie Underwood, and Justin Timberlake. A portion of the movie Casino, starring Robert DeNiro, Joe Pesci, and Sharon Stone, was also filmed here. Piero's has been a classic staple of the city’s dining scene for over four decades and doesn’t show any sign of slowing down.
The restaurant itself is quite large, with 345 seats. There are also six separate rooms available for private dining and special events. Locals, tourists, and celebrities alike are all treated with the same notable service and exquisite meals.
Piero’s takes pride in the fact that their menu is still in the same tradition of when the restaurant first opened. Although breakfast and lunch are available for private events, public dining hours are every day from 5:30–10 p.m. Piero’s Italian dishes and seafood are frequently regarded as some of Las Vegas’s best, and there are plenty of options to choose from. Start with some roasted bell peppers and fried artichokes and transition into a warm soup or fresh salad.
Specialty pasta dishes are aplenty, alongside numerous veal and chicken-based entrees, but the main event at Piero’s is the seafood. Dive into the fresh fish of the day selected by the kitchen, or try the house’s “Fresh Seafood Catch,” which is an assortment of lobster, clams, mussels, shrimp, scallops, and calamari. If that isn't enough, treat yourself to the "Broiled Lobster" available daily at the market price.

One final thing that stands out about Piero's is their connection to the community. Piero’s hosts several local charity events in Las Vegas, such as the Turkey Gobble, PKYF Bike Day, and Holiday Angels.
