Back in April, Eater Vegas confirmed that Carbone was taking over the former Sirio Ristorante space at Aria with a 10,300-square-foot Italian-American restaurant and a construction budget of $3,214,963. Now Aria confirms that the New York import really is taking over the space.

Owners Mario Carbone, Rich Torrisi and Jeff Zalaznick plan to debut their ode to Italian-American restaurants of the mid-20th century in October with table side service. And while the Greenwich Village version opened in 2013 to accolades, the Aria version will be very Las Vegas with a design inspired by the city and the Rat Pack era.

"Las Vegas and New York had a synergy during that time period," Zalaznick says in a press statement. "The same people who were eating at Rocco's in New York were eating at the Sands in Las Vegas with similar experiences, including captain-driven service and table side presentations. Carbone at Aria will embody that glamorous era of Sin City."

Captains wearing burgundy tuxedos created by fashion designer Zac Posen are the starting point to this jump back in time. Hand-painted plates that remind diners of grandma's house and era-specific music further set that tone.

Those captains will build Caesars salads, pull mozzarella and prepare lamb chops table side. Expect tough reservations to order classics such as lobster fra diavola, chicken scarpariello, veal parmesan and octopus pizzaiolo.

In New York, the Carbone style features checkered tablecloths, herringbone tile floors, blue walls, exposed brick walls and an Italian-American red sauce restaurant vibe. Both lunch and dinner are served there.

Check out what Eater food critics Bill Addison, Ryan Sutton and Robert Sietsema had to say about Carbone in New York. They referred to Carbone as "NYC's priciest red sauce joint."
