Chef Gina Marinelli returns to the Las Vegas dining scene when La Strega starts serving Italian cuisine tonight in Summerlin.

Marinelli, who worked with chefs including Shawn McClain, Scott Conant, and Michael Mina, brings dishes from across the Italian peninsula, a tradition she learned from her grandparents, who came from Lake Como and Sicily.

Dishes include Margherita, quattro formaggi, pesto and truffle, prosciutto cotto, and spicy pig pizzas for $12 to $16. Pasta dishes range from spaghetti pomodoro for $14 and bucatini Genovese with a dandelion pesto for $15 to the $18 stracci with braised oxtail and wild mushrooms, and the $27 pasta di frutti di mare with rock shrimp, calamari, and lobster in a spicy pomodoro. On the main entrees, diners can find cozze with Pei mussels for $21, $18 salmon grigliata, and pollo alla Milanese for $21.

Inside the restaurant, which takes over the former Due Forni space, greens, clays, and earth tones make up the color schemes, while moon-shaped lights with dozens of discs lights the space. Italian marbles, velvet seating, and eclectic accents look into the open kitchen. The cocktail bar is made from with a custom glass facade from Sicis, a Ravenna, Italy-based glass company. The Loggia offers al fresco dining and cocktails, as well as a “witch’s garden” designed by Marinelli to grow produce and herbs for La Strega’s seasonal dishes.

La Strega, 3555 S. Town Center Drive, 702-722-2099. Open daily from 5 to 10 p.m.
