Trevi, located next to the Fountain of the Gods at The Forum Shops at Caesars Palace, features homemade traditional and contemporary Italian cuisine including pasta, chicken, pizza, and veal for lunch, dinner, group dining and cocktails.

Recently, Trevi introduced new seasonal menu items created by Executive Chef Peter Scaturro. Beginning with appetizers, new offerings include a mozzarella corroza, a slice of homemade mozzarella lightly breaded with Italian seasoning, fried and served on top of an Italian crostini with smoked prosciutto and sweet roasted tomato. The Romano chicken salad is prepared with peppery arugula, crisp field greens, tomatoes and artichoke hearts tossed in a warm pancetta balsamic dressing served on top of a pan-seared Romano chicken breast. Trevi also offers polpetta di pollo soup made with mini chicken meatballs in a medley of fresh vegetables and Arborio rice.

Lasagna PizzaEntrées include the pollo vesuvio served with tender chicken breast medallions sautéed with roasted herb potatoes, tomato concasse, green peas, asparagus and a touch of dry vermouth. The chicken franchaise is made with Romano breaded chicken breast delicately sautéed with lemon, white wine, mushrooms, sun dried tomatoes and tomato concasse over linguine pasta. The newest seafood selection is a salmon picatta accompanied with grilled vegetables, riso bello venere and Po Valley black rice in a lemon caper sauce. Trevi’s signature pizza, a deep-dish lasagna pizza, has layers of Italian sausage, ricotta and mozzarella cheeses in a tangy pomarola sauce.

Decadent desserts include tiramisu, Italian creme cake and chocolate gooey cake. Trevi will also be featuring a holiday cocktail, the happy hollytini. The candy cane-inspired martini is a blend of vanilla vodka, peppermint schnapps and Bailey’s swirled with a red stripe made of white chocolate and rimmed with crushed peppermint candy.

Happy HollytiniTrevi Time, its version of happy hour, includes half-price mixed drinks, beer and wine by the glass and a Trevi Bites special menu.

When dining at Trevi, seating includes an outdoor patio café next to the Fountain of the Gods with a chance to people watch. Within the restaurant, there is the mezzanine level overlooking the fountain and piazzas, a 28-seat oval bar and walk-up gelato/coffee bar. Group dining is also available.
