Costa Di Mare to Close at Wynn Las Vegas

A well-known Italian seafood restaurant at Wynn resort, Costa di Mare, will close July 18, 2021.

Costa Di Mare has operated at Wynn Las Vegas since 2015.

Costa di Mare was one of the few restaurants to serve fresh-caught langoustines, whatever those might actually be.

Prior to Costa di Mare, the space was occupied by Bartolotta Ristorante di Mare, another exciting restaurant we also didn’t visit.

Las Vegas food critic John Curtas says Costa di Mare will be replaced by a Gucci store.

We can’t wait to experience Gucci’s wild-caught, sustainably-sourced loafers and belts.

Wynn Las Vegas hasn’t commented on why Costa de Mare is closing, but let’s just say successful restaurants don’t close in Las Vegas.

Unless a Batali’s involved. Ahem.

Needless to say, Las Vegas resorts are evaluating all their offerings following the pandemic, and a number of restaurants have closed for good.

Wynn Las Vegas still has one of the best restaurant collections in the world, despite the fact we can’t really afford most of the fancier ones.

The latest addition to the Wynn line-up is Delilah a “modern day supper club.”

We expect Wynn Las Vegas will integrate the team from Costa Di Mare into its other venues.

If you’re looking for an Italian seafood back-up plan, our go-to is, as always, Joe’s Seafood, Prime Steak & Stone Crab at Forum Shops. Yes, seafood is still weird, but people seem to love it.

Fair warning, once you devour the bone-in filet at Joe’s, you may turn from a surf fan to a turf fan forever.

    a big Wynn fan…utterly elegant…the buffet has the choices, some items there (the bacon cooked like brisket, sliced in front of you) are divine……but shockingly rich (watch out)….tried the SW<~~~not impressed, also dinner at Red 8 – Chinese food….meh…Charlies Bar and Grill…..very average….scared to try others!

    I frequent Wynn about 5-6 times a year and here is my comments: Mizumi is my favorite Japanese restaurant, first quality food from sushi to Kobe beef, n beautiful view. I also ate at Costa Di Mare 3-4 times, with the exception of white truffle in the fall, the quality of the food is not worth its price, n they are expensive even by Wynn standards…..my personal opinion, I am not a fan of Mediterranean fish, they are 2nd rate fishes but sold for top prices because they were flown in from Europe. The fishes are generally not fresh enough to be worth top price…..in addition, they are not tasty fishes….

    I’ve been a massive fan of Wynn since my first visit to The Mirage a few months after it opened. Ever since the Wynn opened, I’ve been impressed with how quickly they change features and offerings that aren’t working revenue and guest-satisfaction wise. I don’t eat seafood, so the limited offerings on the menu that appealed to me at Costa di Mare didn’t generate many repeat visits from me. However, I enjoyed the atmosphere while dining there immensely! I don’t enjoy the atmosphere at SW, despite really enjoying the food there. Instead of converting the space to a Gucci store, I would much prefer this two-level space be redone into a more traditional dark wood and marble steak and seafood house. I’m sure Wynn can find space elsewhere on the property for Gucci.
