Upscale ambiance and humble style weave together at Marinelli’s, where 80 percent of the ingredients come straight from Italy for authentic quality and melt-in-your-mouth taste. Executive Chef Sergio Santoro hails from Rome himself and acquired his skills not from the Cordon Bleu, but from his grandmother’s kitchen back home to give new meaning to home-style tastes. Choice meats and one of the best Alfredo sauces this side of the Atlantic are but a few highlights from a broad range of selections. Prix-fixe and happy hour menus boast a variety of tastes for attractive prices, giving everyone looking to indulge south of the strip a meal to remember.
