The highly anticipated restaurant officially opens its doors to the public, offering dinner service Wednesday through Sunday from 5 to 10 p.m.
“The Balla Italian Soul team has worked so hard to bring a taste of Italian to SAHARA Las Vegas, says Chef-Owner McClain. “Our guests can expect a regional menu with fresh plates that showcase the brighter and more seasonally driven aspects of Italian cuisine, in a beautiful environment right on the Las Vegas Strip.”
Menu highlights include handmade pastas, wood-fired pizzas and meats, and fantastic seafood, along with shareable antipasti and decadent desserts.
In addition to a creative cocktail menu with signature Negronis and Spritzes, Balla offers an Italian-forward wines-by-the-glass list and selection of domestic and Italian beers is designed to please a range of palates.
Together with Richard and Sarah Camarota of the McClain Camarota Hospitality Group, McClain has developed a collection of award-winning restaurants, earning multiple accolades including James Beard Award nominations for “Outstanding New Restaurant,” Esquire Magazine’s “Chef of the Year” and Desert Companion’s “Restaurant of the Year.”
