Chef Buddy ‘Cake Boss’ Valastro

Buddy Valastro pioneered the custom cake movement from his family bakery in New Jersey. Then he set his sights on Las Vegas with dreams of bringing his love of food to the masses. With so much culinary talent in his family, it was easy to create a menu to rival other Italian restaurants in Las Vegas.

Italian Food Made From the Heart

Many of the women in Buddy Valastro’s family are featured on the menu. From his wife’s crispy and tender Eggplant Parm to her Linguine & Clams. Grandma’s Meatballs and Nonna’s Lasagna are dishes you crave from the best Italian restaurants in Las Vegas. The overwhelming favorite of Buddy Valastro’s is his mother’s Sunday Gravy. The red sauce cooks all day with meatballs, sausage, lamb, and pork. Served over rigatoni, one bite will have your eyes closed in Italian bliss from the rich flavor of the sauce. If you’ve worked up an appetite, The Boss XL Veal Parm Chop is calling your name. Oven-baked with provolone and mozzarella and served with spaghetti marinara, it's the best dinner in Las Vegas.

Bring the Entire Family

The recipes are the same ones that Buddy Valastro enjoys with his own family. Meaning, they’re meant to be enjoyed with your family, too. Dining for lunch or dinner with your loved ones? La Famiglia Menu is the best choice. Everyone receives a three-course prix fixe menu with a selection of memorable dishes to try.

Desserts by the ‘Cake Boss’ Himself

A meal isn’t complete without dessert, especially when baking is part of the Valastro family business. At the restaurant’s bakery, you can indulge in an impressive collection of sweet treats. Cannoli? It wouldn’t be a true Italian restaurant without the classic cannoli. Enjoy those along with rich Nutella Cake, Buddy Valastro’s famous Lobster Tail Pastry, and more.

Sweet and Savory Triumph

With the success of TLC’s “Cake Boss,” the opportunity to bring his first restaurant to Las Vegas in 2013 felt right. Partnering with veteran restaurateurs Elizabeth Blau and Kim Canteenwalla, they knew where to go. The rich heritage of the menu and the culture of The Venetian Resort—it’s a match made in Italian heaven.
