One of the best Italian seafood restaurants in the city dims its lights for the last time this weekend. Costa Di Mare at Wynn Las Vegas, which is on the Eater 38, closes on Sunday, July 18, after service.
The restaurant with chef Mark LoRusso at the helm opened in 2015 with a roster Mediterranean seafood and Italian cuisine including fresh pastas and 40-plus fish flown in from the coast of Italy daily. But it’s the langoustines that earned accolades. The restaurant is one of only a few in the Western Hemisphere that serves fresh-caught langoustines. Its patio with private cabanas overlooking a lagoon offers one of the more romantic settings in the city.
Costa Di Mare replaced Bartolotta Ristorante di Mare, the restaurant from James Beard Foundation winner for Best Chef Southwest in 2009 Paul Bartolotta, who opened the restaurant when Wynn debuted in 2005. He’s since returned to Milwaukee and his 11 restaurants there.
