North Italia at Rampart Commons in Summerlin has become a neighborhood favorite for its pizzas and pastas handmade daily. 

At-Home Pasta-making

If you aren’t dining out and would like to have these creations at home, order the $65 lasagna family pack and $65 pasta kit. This meal kit feeds 4 to 5 and includes a large Caesar salad, parmesan garlic bread, tiramisu dessert and a choice of lasagna with herbed ricotta, mozzarella, provolone and grana padano cheese, or pasta with choice of tagliatelle, bucatini, rigatoni or strozzapreti, and pasta sauce, bolognese, marinara, garlic parmesan cream or basil pesto. Some assembly required.

A Magical Tree Grows at AREA15

Oddwood at AREA15 from Corner Bar Management is now serving cocktails under a 25-foot-tall digital maple tree. Created by artist, Color + Light, the towering, twinkling tree has more than 5,000 individually-programmed LED lights. A favorite sip is the Yerba Santa with blanco tequila, passion fruit, pineapple and lime. Their signature cocktails are priced at $12 each. Oddwood is open daily from 4 to 10 p.m.
