If you’ll be in town for the 2019 Las Vegas Food & Wine Festival this October, we invite you to dine with us here at Mercato della Pescheria during the proceedings—and attend a festival event featuring our very own executive chef as well!
The 2019 Las Vegas Food & Wine Festival
A grand soiree for foodies, oenophiles, and all-around epicureans, the Las Vegas Food & Wine Festival takes place this year from October 3rd through October 6th. Its main venue is Tivoli Village 400 S Rampart Blvd., Las Vegas, NV), just a half-hour or so away from our Vegas Strip Italian restaurant.
Top-class chefs, sommeliers, and food personalities from Sin City and beyond take center stage at this swanky and delicious affair, the proceeds of which go to different charitable causes.
Participating Chefs at This Year’s Las Vegas Food & Wine Festival
It’s quite the star-studded culinary lineup at the 2019 Las Vegas Food & Wine Festival. Featured chefs this year include Saipin Chutima, Charlie Palmer, Katsuya Uechi, Lalo Saavedra, Paco Cortes, Roshni Gurnani, Allen Fisher, and Angela Sweetser.
Also part of the illustrious lineup is our very own Mercato della Pescheria Executive Chef Francesco Schintu. Chef Francesco hails from Sardinia and honed his craft at fine restaurants throughout Italy, eventually coming to New York via Fiorello’s and Trattoria dell’Arte.
Chef Francesco and his dishes have wowed royalty and celebrities and earned him such nods as a 2005 “Best Italian Chef Las Vegas” honor from the Chefs in America Award Foundation.
Another skillful chef within our parent V&E Restaurant Group family, Chef Matt Fresinski of Las Vegas’s Café Americano, will also be participating in this year’s Las Vegas Food & Wine Festival.
Join Us at the Las Vegas Food & Wine Festival and Our Italian Restaurant in The Venetian
Besides joining the festivities with Chef Francesco and the other culinary luminaries at the Las Vegas Food & Wine Festival itself, you can enjoy some of the city’s best cuisine right here at Mercato della Pescheria on the Las Vegas Strip, set within the illustrious Venetian complex. We can easily accommodate large groups in case you’ll be coming to us with a full festival going party.
Here you’ll enjoy the pinnacle of authentic Italian cuisine, including fresh seafood dishes, hand-crafted pasta, and a delectable raw bar. The excellence of our dishes comes perfectly matched by that of our service and our ambience.
We hope to see you at our table this October during the 2019 Las Vegas Food & Wine Festival, and meanwhile we’re proud that our very own executive chef will be part of the action!
