Crazy for Caprese!

Trevi-ItalianI thought that L has stayed at the top of the blog long enough while acting out how I felt that day. So now onto what is the last Vegas post.  There were a lot more little mentions along the way, but we’d never get to all of the other great places that we’ve been to since our return!

So after I made it up and out on our last full night of our stay, we headed to Trevi-Italian, which is in the Forum Shops area at Caesars.  “Fresh” from our greasy afternoon fare, we were ready for something that didn’t need to compensate for the night before anymore.

Headed to the bar as we mostly do, it was surprisingly a more relaxing atmosphere there, as the tables in the “patio” dining area were close together, and just gated off from the mall near the large roaring “Fountain of the Gods”.  There were tables in the back beyond the bar though if you didn’t want to be at the bar, and didn’t want the noise and activity.

Service was prompt! We had some red wine since I was totally ready to get back on the vino horse again as it were… and ordered their Caprese Alla Trevi salad and an impossibly delicious sounding signature dish: Lasagna Pizza! Always pleased when reality even surpasses expectations.  The caprese was flavourful, and actually had more on the plate than most places we’ve ordered it, so happy with the portion size as well as the taste.  And the pizza? Dense, satisfying crust, excellent sauce, and lots sausage and cheese.  I see a homemade version in the superfoodies future.  We did not finish the pizza, but took a couple of slices back to the room, anticipating a quick morning bite before we had to check out (any kind of pizza for breakfast is a great start to the day in my book!)

We were a bit disappointed to have missed some of the food trucks that we had planned to visit, but overall, a really great food/drink adventure! Wish we could say the same about the casinos! But that’s another kind of blog.  Next up: from the food network, our first “You Gotta Eat Here” restaurant experience!
