Wolfgang Puck’s Spago restaurant at the Bellagio.

Celebrity chef Wolfgang Puck’s restaurant Spago, which closed in January at the Forum Shops at Caesars, is opening today at the Bellagio, overlooking the Strip resort’s famous fountains.

“The resort’s clientele and my longtime guests align perfectly with Spago’s exceptional offerings and elegant atmosphere,” Puck said in a statement. “It’s truly a match made in heaven.”

Spago, which first opened in Las Vegas in 1992, took over the space at the Bellagio that formerly housed Todd English’s Olives restaurant.

Spago features floor-to-ceiling windows, giving guests a view of the lake outside. The main dining room features a pair of chandeliers that accent the modern art pieces and the contemporary aesthetic of the establishment.

The restaurant, which Puck’s wife, Gelila, helped design, has two private dining rooms with lake views that seat up to 20 people and a lounge with brass features, a smoked-oak wood floor and leather chairs and couches.

The menu features dishes including Baja Kanpachi crudo, wood-fired pizzas, salads, pasta dishes, steaks, bar bites and desserts.

“Wolfgang himself holds himself to and his team to unrivaled high standards in order to create extraordinary culinary experiences around the world,” Randy Morton, Bellagio’s president and chief operating officer, said in a statement. “We are thrilled to welcome Spago to Bellagio at its new home within our award-winning culinary portfolio.”

Spago is open for lunch daily from 11:30 a.m. to 2:45 p.m. Dinner hours are 5 p.m. to 10:30 p.m. Sunday through Thursday and 5 p.m. to 11 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays. The bar menu is available daily from 2:45 p.m. until closing. Reservations are available by calling 702-693-8181.
