Veteran restaurateur Piero Selvaggio, known for cultivating one of the finest wine cellars in the world, brings his famed Los Angeles restaurant 'Valentino' to The Venetian. Selvaggio's expertise is heard weekly on a leading Los Angeles radio station and he is a frequent host on radio's James Beard award-winning nominated program "Good Food" with Jennifer Farro. Selvaggio, who also owns and operates LA's Primi and Posto, is currently working on his autobiography. Valentino at The Venetian will showcase a menu that is innovative, yet faithful to the Italian culinary tradition. The cuisine is contemporary Italian focusing on the quality of ingredients, revisiting traditional recipes, and adapting to the local market. Many of the ingredients in the kitchen are imports from Italy, including white truffles, fresh porcini mushrooms, burrata cheese from Puglia, and Mediterranean and Adriatic Sea fish. Breads are baked fresh daily. Chef de Cuisine Luciano Pellegrini will create a magnificent menu that will change seasonally. Diners can expect an elegant dining experience for dinner. Valentino is open for lunch and dinner. A comprehensive collection of the best vintages will premier Italian, Californian and French wineries. The décor is well-suited for this fine dining experience. The main concept is that of "Walking down a street" and uses such materials as wood, terrazzo flooring and lighting through Venetian glass. A vaulted ceiling and a main room filled with elegant earth tones with splashes of color complement the wood. A selection of 24,000 wines from around the world is visible. The chairs are of a unique design of soft leather that wraps around the guest's back when seated. Besides the main dining room there is a second, private dining room and a small, exclusive wine cellar-styled room that seats 25. There is also a lounge area and bar. Valentino is located at Restaurant Row at Casino Level. Nestled at the front of Valentino is P.S. Italian Grill which serves simple, quick and lighter-styled foods, and specializes in grilled pizza. The Grill area is the entryway to Valentino Restaurant. The Wine Bar & Grill is open from 11am to 3pm and 5pm to 11pm daily.
