Frediani’s, An Authentic Italian Restaurant


While I would hardly call this place “a hole in the wall,” I will admit you have to look for it to know it is there. But once you go to Frediani’s, An Authentic Italian Restaurant, you will go back again and again. 

Located in a strip mall on Green Valley Parkway, north of Sunset, behind the 24-Hour Fitness Center, Frediani’s offers true Italian cuisine with some live entertainment thrown in to complete what a true meal should be – good food, great service, wonderful company and ambiance. 

Owned by Maureen and Enrico Santarelli, these two are living the American Dream after buying Frediani’s over one year ago. According to Maureen Santarelli, she wanted, “to meet people. I have never owned a restaurant before but I wanted to try it out.”   

Enrico Santarelli is from Italy and, as he said, “We make sure we prepare very original dishes with freshest ingredients. I have wonderful trained chefs, and we try to make it family style. We try to be affordable for everybody and family friendly.” 

The cuisine is a combination of Northern and Southern Italy with daily specials. Along with pizza, there are pasta dishes with penne, linguine, ravioli, lasagna and tortellini and entrees with chicken, shrimp, scampi, pork, salmon and that standard, New York steak. The appetizers include antipasto, calamari, mussels and steamers with soup of the day and fresh salads including Caesar and crispy calamari salad. Along with dining, there is a full bar and lounge. 

As for entertainment, Lance Posner, entertainment director, said, “This is going to be the hottest in all of Vegas.  We are going to turn this place into the Ten Club inside Frediani’s. It’s going to be one of the hippest social scenes. There will be everything from entertainment to social parties to business mixers to other events along with the best cuisine in town.” 

The hours are 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. for lunch and 4:30 p.m. to 10 p.m. Tuesday through Sunday for dinner.
