Whether you’re the type of diner who needs a multi-course layout of the land or are simply an indecisive foodie, there’s a tasting menu just for you. Here, five Vegas restaurants with well-worth-it menus that offer a sneak peek of the house’s finest dishes.

Bellagio Hotel and Casino, 3600 S. Las Vegas Blvd., 702-693-8100
If we told you that you could tour the Italian coastline without ever leaving home, would you do it? The Wynn-based hotel restaurant’s Giro d’Italia (or “taste of Italy”) menu aims to take guests on a gastronomical ride across Italy by featuring specialties from Sicily to Tuscany—and everywhere in between. There’s no need for airfare when you can devour a country’s finest cuisine from the comfort of your own city. $180 per person, additional $110 wine pairing per person. Wynn, 3131 S.

Chef’s Daily Creations range $175 to $225 per person. Nobu Signature for $125 per person. Caesars Palace, 3750 S. Las Vegas Blvd., 702-785-6628
Carnivores can rejoice at this meat-centric spot that puts forth a dedicated beef tasting menu for hungry patrons who could care less about their veggies.
