Pauly D and Giada De Laurentiis Bond Over Vegas Italian Restaurant (PHOTOS)

Who better to check out Italian chef Giada De Laurentiis's new restaurant than Mr. Italian himself, Pauly D?

The former Jersey Shore star stepped out in Las Vegas, Nevada on June 2 to chat it up with Giada. As a special correspondent for Extra, Pauly interviewed the Food Network star about her new Vegas restaurant, naturally called Giada.

The eatery is part of the new luxury boutique, The Cromwell, and it seats about 300 people. That's a lot of homestyle Italian food to prep! Aside from the food probably being delicious, the view is top notch, overlooking the Bellagio hotel and the mountains in the distance.
