Vegas Eats: Nove, Italian with a View

IMG_1630

I went here based on a friend’s recommendation. Soaring high above the strip, in Palms’ Fantasy Tower, Nove offers a beautiful view. Now, if the food & service matched this exquisite ambiance, we’d be golden.

We started off with a wonderful amuse buche of ahi tuna. It was free, it was good, it wins.

Not pictured was the baby octopus appetizer. I’ve always been a sucker for this ever since I was younger. Part of it is due to the fact that I like eating it & get a twisted satisfaction when people react with an “ew” when I devour the dish. I attacked it right away in this instance, the photo was an afterthought as you can see. You’ll have to trust me when I say it lived up to its expectations in terms of taste but the portion was way too small for the price.

The main course was a tuna with eggplant. Unlike the skimpy appetizers, this course in itself was worth the money. The fish flaked very easily and the vegetables were cooked to perfection. A small starch would help complete the meal in my opinion but I suppose that’s why they give you the bread plate when you start your meal.

If you want a break from the cacophony of the casino floor and the craziness that Vegas can be as we all know, check out Nove. It has a beautiful view, the servers are very attentive, and the main courses are worth the cash. Plus it’s a great date restaurant before you hit the strip for the rest of the night.
