Cafe Vettro (Aria) – Newers isn’t Always Better

by Franklin on July 27, 2011

You are in Vegas.  It is late, and you don’t quite want to call it a night.  A light night snack is in order.  Where do I decide to go?  Aria.  I never seen City Center, and I wanted a cold drink and dessert. I decided to go to Cafe Vettro to kill two birds with one stone.

The interior was kind of interesting.  The rocks and the futuristic pillars randomly scattered throughout the dining area was kind of a cool contrast. The large panoramic windows and high ceiling were very attractive.  There was loud music playing from the club that was supposedly underneath the restaurant. The cool atmosphere really didn’t do it for me, because well, the food and service was not at par with the decor.

We ordered a drink and a chocolate soufflé with vanilla ice cream.  This was good, but not great.  I wasn’t expecting much, I was half dead, and this wasn’t really a knock out. The chocolate wasn’t chocolatey enough, and the ice cream tasted like cold tasteless cream.  Like I said, I wasn’t expecting much.

Don’t be fooled by the newness of Aria.  Yeah the actual hotel and casino is really nice and is a great addition to Vegas.  I would recommend to stay away from Cafe Vettro. It isn’t good nor is it special.  One should go elsewhere for a late night snack.  City Center, 1.  Aria, 1.  Cafe Vettro, 0.

That’s too bad you didn’t have a good experience here. I ate at Cafe Vettro for breakfast, and it wasn’t bad at all! :) It doesn’t strike me as a place for sweets, especially with Jean Phillipe inside Aria!

Yeah. Cafe Vettro was more of an after thought. The decor is nice and all, but food was not too special. Maybe next time I should have a full meal here. Yeah, and I tried the Jean Philippe in Belagio. It was quite special.
