Scarpetta, the Italian restaurant at the Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas, now has a private dining experience with a six-course menu meant for parties of up to six. Scarpetta’s chef de cuisine Michael Vitangeli shares stories about the family recipes he serves at the chef’s table that sits between the view of the Fountains at Bellagio and the restaurant’s kitchen.
Vitangeli, a Las Vegas native, says he learned about his grandmother’s recipes starting at age 5 when he joined her in the kitchen. “The new chef’s table experience allows me the opportunity to welcome guests into my Italian kitchen and share the delicious and savory comfort of my family’s longstanding recipes,” he says in a press statement.
The $200 per person dinner features homemade burratta served with prosciutto, roasted bell peppers, cracked pepper, grissini, and super Tuscan olive oil; scampi with homemade pasta, smothered jumbo prawns, heirloom tomatoes, capers, Vermentino wine, roasted garlic, and salmoriglio; porchetta, a roasted pork belly with apple mostarda and horseradish crema; and homemade canoli and torta della nona for dessert.
Parties of up to six guests can make reservations online.
