Battista's Hole in the wall (near the Strip, behind Flamingo's Las Vegas)

Website: Rating: 4.5 out of 5 Star Address: 4041 Linq Ln, Las Vegas, NV 89109 Feedback: Just a behind Flamingo's, near the LINQ ferris wheel, this "Hole in the Wall" Italian restaurant is actually quite good.  But I feel that it's the same tomato sauced used everywhere.  It is quite filling though and we only ordered three dishes for four people! Place looks really interesting though with lots of trinkets and things hanging in the ceiling. Good thing: 13 dollar cover charge and 13 dollar minimum BUT Free WINE Free Soup or Salad Free Cappuccino Free Garlic Bread Cappucino - too sweet for me Lasagna! Sooo good! Chicken Parmigiana - It is like Chicken Patty with Tomato Sauce. Yummy Meatballs - one of their classics Minestrone - quite good!

Website: Rating: 4.5 out of 5 star Location: Monte Carlo Feedback:  2016/12/19 I tried the Latte which costs like around 5 bucks. We ordered one which is a Rainbow Latte . You have to ask for it though. Pretty good coffee and perfectly served and great art! 2016-12-20 Came back for a second time and asked for a nutella latte.  Pretty sweet for me and thus, for those who prefer NUTELLA, go ahead and order it! Asked for Rainbow latte and one was made with a Rainbow swan! Sweet!

Tried out their two popular dishes, Sluts and Fairfax Sandwich on Dec. 19, 2016. Fairfax Sandwich Cage-free soft scrambled egg, chives, caramelized onions, cheddar cheese, Sriracha sauce in a warm brioche bun. What I think?  It's actually quite good.  I like brioche bun and the Sriracha sauce adds a twist to it. Slut Cage-free coddled egg on top of housemade potato puree, cooked in a glass jar topped with gray salt and chives served with baguette What I think?  It's basically puree with egg and so
