Dinner @ Mastrioni's, Las Vegas, NV - 10/30/14

What fun we had tonight seeing friends, Rose and Steve, from Pennsylvania. Actually, they have a second home in Las Vegas as well. After talking about trying to get together a couple of months ago (if we were in close proximity to each other), it happened tonight.

A quick aside: Here's a view of the evening sky as we were entering the restaurant. There were more clouds in the sky tonight than we have seen since we have been in NV!

Mastrioni's is a fine Italian restaurant with appetizer and dinner specials in the Summerlin area (west Las Vegas). It is a family-owned business founded in 1999. The atmosphere is intimate and casual...a great location for good food and table conversations. Currently rated at 88% [likes] on UrbanSpoon (my go-to restaurant app as we travel the country), it was as good as the reviews said it would be. Of course, Steve and Rose, already knew that but it was our first visit.

There is an expansive menu of Italian cuisine, I had Chicken Piccata; John had bone-in prime rib; Rose and Steve had Chicken Parmesan and Veal. We both had their house salad. The food was delicious with great service, too. None of us had dessert (too full) even though they had an impressive menu.

The best part of the night, though, of course, was catching up with friends. We enjoyed hearing about their family, work, and plans while we shared info about our full-time RV, retirement lifestyle. What a treat it was to see them.

Their grandchildren who live in Vegas will be spending time with them this weekend. We look forward to the next time we are all in the same geographic location. This is one of the aspects of RV life that is very different from our previous lifestyle. To continue friendships, you need to make the effort to keep in touch. And it is so much fun when we do get together...where ever that may happen to be!
