M Resort Spa Casino Hosts Inaugural Italian Festival in Las Vegas

The M Resort Spa Casino is continuing their “foodie” tradition by bringing back a Las Vegas favorite.  After serving as the setting for the 2009 season of Bravo’s Top Chef,  the Marnell family, M Resort owners, are hosting their Italian Festival poolside at the Villagio Del Sole.   The event is scheduled for October 17 and 18th from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m.   Admission is free. 

The first Italian Festival was held 17 years ago at the Marnell family’s Rio All-Suite Hotel and Casino.  It quickly became a locals’ favorite, bringing thousands of people to the Rio’s two-day event.  

“I’m looking forward to starting a new tradition with it [The Italian Festival] here at the M…I hope people bring their whole family and enjoy great Italian food and entertainment in an unbelievable setting,” said Anthony Marnell III, Chairman and CEO of the M Resort Casino Spa. 

Guests at the Italian Festival will be able to sample calzones, pizza and more prepared by local restaurants as well as the M Resort’s own world renowned chefs.  There will be Bocce tournaments and grape stomping and spaghetti eating contests.  But if nothing else, the trip to the Henderson hotel would be worth it just to sample the dessert table – stacked high with cheesecake, biscotti, Italian ices, cannoli and spumoni.
