This week the wife and I went to Summerlin as we were meeting friends for dinner. They wanted us to try Salvatore’s located inside the Suncoast Hotel & Casino.
That night Las Vegas legend Siegfried of Siegfried and Roy was dining just two tables over from us. After our waiter got our drink orders it was time to decide on some appetizers.
We ordered the Crab Tower, Roasted Peppers and the Peppers stuffed with Sausage.
The Crab Tower had jumbo lump crabmeat layered with baby field greens, roma tomatoes and avocado with a vinaigrette dressing. If you like crab this is a great appetizer that’s light so you have plenty of room for more items to try.
I enjoyed both styles of the peppers but if I had to pick one over the other it would have been the regular roasted. They fire roast the peppers and then glaze them with pan roasted garlic and oil. I love taking the peppers and putting them on a piece of warm Italian bread. Trust me it doesn’t get much better than that.
Next we ordered some salads. I went with the Spinach, which was very good. I like that they serve pancetta and crispy shallots in the salad. My wife had the Caesar Salad, which she said was the best in town. It was served in this Parmesan crusted bowl. The combination of the salad along with the cheesy crunch of the bowl in every bite was very good.
Salvatore’s has an extensive selection of entrées. When I go to a place for the first time I look the entire menu over and come up with a couple of choices. I then like to ask my waiter what are his favorites on the menu. He said it depends what you are in the mood for.
I answered veal and he immediately said the Veal Chop Milanese. This dish was excellent. They served the chop at a nice thickness; most places pound the veal flat for this dish. I really enjoyed their preparation style and would order this again in a heartbeat. My wife went with the Chicken Parm, which is her go-to dish – she wasn’t disappointed.
The serving size was huge. She took home what was left and had it for lunch the next day.
We then split a piece of the pineapple cheesecake, which was delicious and a nice change from the usual toppings.
As for Siegfried, he is a regular here. Our waiter, who was so nice and attentive to us all night, introduced us to him. I have to say, meeting a Las Vegas icon like Siegfried was pretty cool and he couldn’t have been nicer. He talked to us and did a magic trick for the ladies, giving them a special commemorative coin. He didn’t have to stop at our table at all let alone do what he did, which just made a great night that much better.
Our waiter was fantastic and the food was very good. I’ll be back real soon. I give Salvatore’s a rating of 3.75 Forks.
