Best Underappreciated Restaurant

Onda Ristorante



With so many restaurants vying for attention in Las Vegas, it’s easy to overlook some. Onda Ristorante is one of those slightly-forgotten-but-easily-lovable restaurants that has everything from an impressive cheese selection to tender osso bucco, braised beef cheeks and char-grilled octopus. Onda also features a fine-dining room and a more casual bar area, lined with white marble. An impressive wine list and reasonable prices for the Strip make it our go-to spot for Friday dinner.

In The Mirage, (866) 339-4566.
