Pizza in Vegas

flautachica Oct 28, 2009 11:39 AM

Okay, any rec's for delicious pizza in Vegas--preferably on the Strip (or downtown), but doesn't have to be. And call me old fashioned (or plain), but I love red sauce on my pizza. The toppings, though, is where I'm more than happy to explore. Cheap to moderately priced is the range I'm looking in...

    I would recommend Metro Pizza. They have a location not far from the Strip in the Ellis Island Casino on Koval Lane. They do a very good thin-crust Chicago-Style pizza there and I am from Chicago so I know these types of pizzas well. They also do quite a few New York style pizzas but I have never tried them before.

      I agree -- Metro is pretty good. Lots of other locations too.

        I recommend Broadway Pizza on Rancho just north of Charleston. Also, you may want to do a search on the Las Vegas Weekly website, as two weeks ago they had a special pizza issue.

        It's not a pizza joint but I had one of the best pizza's if not the best at Stratta in the Wynn for lunch. It was called Bosco. Simple yet amazing.

            Settebello is well worth the trip, especially if you want pizza the way they make it in Italy. Simply superb. However if staying close to the strip is of great importance then the previously mentioned Metro Pizza is probably the next best option.

            Just tried Anthony's Coal Oven Pizza in Town Square. It was great. Thin pizza and really crispy with just the right amount of char.

              I agree with Metro Pizza & Settebellos. Also, Northside Nathan's in Summerlin for deep dish pizza, and Montesano's near Silverado Ranch for their smoky 5 cheese pizza.

                if sticking to the Strip, Rao's serves pizza at lunch time , get a side of meatballs ( polpette ) and life is good !

                I believe Metro delivers to the Strip ( might be the ellis island location, can't remember, it's been awhile )

                happy eating !

                  I am a new yorker who is now living in Las Vegas. I love pizza and when in NY ate it regurlarly. In Vegas I'm sad to say there are very few pizza joints that are up to my standards. Most pizza out here is either over priced, under cooked or the quality is so bad that frozen pizzas at the grocery store would be a better option. That being said there are a few places in town that can satisfy my cravings when they occur.

                  in order of my favorites-
                  1.NY Pizza and Pasta - NE corner of Sahara and Jones behind the 7-11.
                  Best pizza in town(IMHO) and true new yorkers run this family owned business. Feels just like being back in NY while I am there.

                  2. Verrazano Pizza - Rainbow past Charleston before the freeway on the left.
                  Very good NY style pizza. Fair price.

                  3. La Famiglia - The Palms.
                  Usually good pizza. Costly.

                  I've had a few good experiences with Metro but more bad ones. They are expensive also and most locations don't sell slices.

                    This may be a little "lowbrow", but I recommend Uncle Joe's on Fremont Street (just east of where the pedestrian-only section begins), although I do recommend that you order it to go. (And there's nothing wrong with red sauce on pizza, unless you're really into the Chicgao style with chunky tomatoes instead of the sauce.)

                    Then again, I like pizza with pepperoni, extra cheese, and pineapple, so take my opinion at your own risk.

                      If you are interested in authentic Italian-style pizza, try Enoteca San Marco in the Venetian. Fun atmosphere, too.

                        I haven't been to quite a few of the recommended places, but I just want to second Settebello. It is a bit of a schlep to get there from the strip, but easy if you have a rental car. I live in NYC and feel that Settebello might be in the top 5 in Manhattan, and the top 10 in the 5 boros. Salads are also more than an afterthought.
