At Wolfgang Puck's first Italian restaurant, Trattoria del Lupo, savor dishes inspired by Rome and its neighboring regions. The menu changes daily and features a contemporary blend of tastes from the old country, all in the culinary styling of master chef Wolfgang Puck. Lupo boasts exhibition pizza, antipasto and dessert stations, a glass-enclosed area where fresh pasta is made daily, and a wine room surrounded by a spacious bar. Turn-of-the-century antique furnishings give the restaurant the feel of a traditional Italian trattoria. The open and airy dining room provides the perfect setting for people watching without leaving the hotel. Private dining also is available.
The name Wolfgang Puck is synonymous with restaurant hospitality and the culinary arts. Wolfgang began cooking at his mother's side as a child. A chef in the Austrian town where he was born, she encouraged him to begin his formal training at fourteen years of age. As a young chef, he worked in some of France's greatest restaurants, including Maxim's in Paris. At the age of 24, Wolfgang left for the United States, arriving at La Tour in Indianapolis. After coming to LA in 1975, he quickly garnered the attention of the Hollywood elite as chef and eventually part owner of Ma Maison. With an innate understanding of the potential for California cuisine, he was pivotal in its rise to national attention during the late 1970s. Since, Puck has built an empire that encompasses three separate Wolfgang Puck entities: Wolfgang Puck Fine Dining Group, Wolfgang Puck Catering, and Wolfgang Puck Worldwide, Inc.
What a pleasant surprise. This was the best dinner we had all week in Vegas. Food was perfect, service was excellent including super martinis. The atmosphere was very relaxing
Service was top notch, from the hostess stand to the bar to the table. Great wine. Fantastic food. The breadsticks with white bean puree were perfect, as was my salad and osso buco. They do a great job of handling large groups like ours, but it looked like they gave the same attention to parties of two. I'm always a little leery of celebrity chef restaurants, but this one delivered nicely.
You can't really go wrong with a Wolfgang Puck restaurant. The caprese salad was so fresh and perfectly delicious. I'd like to have that salad every night! We ordered a fish dish and risotto to share, and the waiter was kind enough to split the dishes so we could have an equal portion of each. The prices weren't too expensive considering the high quality of the food and unique dishes.
