Shania Twain Dines at Giada De Laurentiis’ New Las Vegas Restaurant

Where does a country sensation like Shania Twain go when she’s hungry in Vegas? To a restaurant run by a food sensation: Giada De Laurentiis, specifically.

Perhaps the singer, who’s currently residing in Sin City for her Shania: Still the One show at The Colosseum, was seeking a huggy-fuzzy vibe. De Laurentiis has said that she hopes Giada Vegas, which opened last month in The Cromwell hotel, will make people feel like they’re getting a “big welcoming hug.”

It sounds like Twain, who dined with her husband Frederic Thiebaud, was a fan. “Had an amazing meal at @giadavegas last night. She is so talented and so sweet. A must while in Vegas!” she captioned an Instagram shot (above) of her posing with the telegenic chef.

De Laurentiis returned the social media love. “SpecialGuest in the Giada Vegas kitchen!! @shaniatwain and her handsome hubby!” the chef wrote for the below photo of the pair getting a peek at the kitchen.

Twain has told Country Weekly that she loves pasta, though as a rule she tries to make fresh produce and protein sources the focus of her diet. We’re hoping she ditched the healthy stuff and indulged in one of the several homemade pastas on the Giada Vegas menu.

And we can’t help but wonder if the favor will be returned: Will there be Instagram shots of De Laurentiis backstage at Twain’s show next week?

Pasta can’t be as bad as we think, otherwise Giada would be fat. I think it is the overall picture that is the issue. Just like the Japanese, they are so super thin but eat rice at every meal….but they don’t snack on fattening desserts or big bulky drinks like we Americans do.

I was just at Giada’s on Monday night. It was a swanky, gorgeous, pricey restaurant with a very different selection of food. Not your typical NYC Italian food. Found it very hard to choose what to order. Food was way overpriced and it was a struggle to decide what to eat. Food on the menu was too weird for most. Giada was there that night in the restaurant and was in the kitchen and then talking with patrons. She is even teenier in person. Great wait staff.

Love Shania, wish Giada would go away. No one is that happy and bubbly all the time. She is such a fake!
