Sometimes it’s hard to keep mafia movies straight since they all usually contain at least two of the following: family drama, double-crossings, and an old-school Italian restaurant. But what we can keep straight are our favorite Italian spots, and Ferraro’s is right at the top. Open since 1985, this Las Vegas institution serves handmade pasta and an incredible osso buco (that you should definitely order). Pair that with a bottle from their wine list that’s so long it has a table of contents, before you ask the table next to you what really happened at Cheryl’s wedding and see if you can add some fuel to the fire.
