Mercato della Pescheria brings Italy to Vegas
For a taste of classic Italy, Mercato della Pescheria has you covered. The restaurant, inspired by Italy’s coastal fishing villages, features glass and marble-topped shop counters surrounding prep areas, a long, marble-topped bar, and a wall of wine, creating a charming dining area.
Start with a Negroni Sbagliato, a take on the classic Negroni, with prosecco lightening up the drink. Of course, with that wall of wine, you’ll find an enormous selection, from sparkling to chardonnays, originating in areas as close as California’s Napa Valley to the slopes in Italy. For your appetizer, order the meatballs, made with pork and beef and cooked in a sauce of San Marzano tomatoes, or the crispy calamari with Calabrian chile aioli.
Embrace that seafood inspiration with classic jumbo shrimp scampi in white wine, lemon, garlic and butter sauce with linguini. Or go for a casual pizza, from tomato and mozzarella to mushroom and Italian sausage. One unusual variety is the artichoke pizza, where truffle cream joins grilled artichokes and Gorgonzola.
