We went to this Wynn restaurant last Sunday evening. We had outdoor seating beside the water. It was beautiful. The waiters knowledge of the menu was incredible. He explained how Wynn bought the packing house and trucks in Italy and how the seafood was flown in on a daily basis. The presentation of whole fresh fish was incredible. 5 of us split I fish cooked whole filleted tableside. It came with 2 different sauces, neither of which was needed the fish was so sweet. 2 of our party had a seafood stew which was incredible and the 3rd non seafood eater had a ribeye which he loved. We told them what types of wines we liked and were presented mid range excellent choices. From appetizer to dessert it was incredble, not cheap, $200 per person including tip, but it is in the top 5 restaurants I have ever been to and I own 2 restaurants myself. If you can, take the time to treat yourself here.

I just love Italian and seafood, so I made plans to dine with my wife at the Bartolotta on my birthday, but your post scared me.
Let me explain. A week ago I printed the menu to start dreaming about it and was imagining spending around $200 for both of us (two seafood appetizers $40, two seafood pastas $40, wine lets say $50, water $8, two desserts $20 plus tip & tax), that is half what you spent . Where am I going wrong? I’d really like to hear from you, so excuse from asking it by posting, e-mailing and by message, because I’m not sure what’s the best way to do it.

If I can throw in my two cents, I've been to Bartolotta twice, and loved it both times. Cost can vary wildly at any restaurant, but at Bartolotta this seems to be especially true. paulista, your budget is certainly reasonable. However, it's easy to spend a lot more. For example, one of their specialties is whole fresh fish flown in from Italy, as noted by Hndfulprls. This can easily run $75/person - or more - just for the main course! Get whole fresh shellfish, and the price is even higher.
You've clearly done your research, and should be in good shape. As long as you avoid some of the very expensive items, you'll be fine.

Since I read the menu, I took a mental note: avoid the flown-from-Italy itens. 200 is my budget for the great dinner of the trip when we travel to the US. Of course it wont't kill me to spend an extra 20 or even 50, but we've able to stick to it on our last two experiences (Delmonico's in Vegas and The Palm in NYC)
