Metro Pizza is a casual spot that was founded by a family with roots in New York’s Little Italy, and all of the menu items pay tribute to their heritage. All the dough is made fresh, hand-stretched and cooked on stones in the hearth ovens. Check out the “East Side” New York-style pies, like the Mulberry Street, made with breaded eggplant, ricotta, and thick slices of mozzarella.
John Arena worked in his family's New York City pizzeria as a child and went on to open his own place in Vegas 40 years ago. The business now known as Metro Pizza was an immediate hit and grew to six locations, including smaller versions inside the Ellis Island casino and at McCarran International Airport. The menu is heavy on traditional New York, but Arena is eager to embrace other styles that resonate with customers for different reasons. So don't be surprised to see a crispy thin-crust Roman Margherita, a five-day rise Sicilian pepperoni that looks like a brick but is soft and light, and a rectangular Detroit with pesto, creamy vodka sauce, and melted cheese that runs down the edges. Collaborator and partner Chris Decker is always working with Arena on new ideas and the two aren't afraid to experiment. So feel free to ask about what's new on any given day.
