Wolfgang Puck Pizzeria and Cucina at the stunning Crystals shopping center in the massive CityCenter complex serves up the world famous chef’s signature creation, wood-fired pizzas, in an comfortable setting with great views. No wonder this unpretentious eatery has become one of the most popular Italian Restaurants in Las Vegas.
The setting is warm and inviting, with a bird’s eye view of the rest of the bustling Crystals shopping center that provides you with the perfect vantage point from which to people watch. The hip and modern space features a relaxed bar and lounge where you can enjoy a cocktail or beer while catching the game on a flatscreen television.
The restaurant serves up a great selection of Italian favorites like pastas, meat and fish. Specialty entrees include Penne Carbonara (with English peas and crisp pancetta), Ricotta Gnocchi (with sausage Bolognese and Italian parsley), salmon (cooked with rosemary butter, bacon, mushrooms and onions), and grilled rib-eye Steak (with Tuscan potatoes and spicy rapini). All of these options are delicious, but the real attraction at the restaurant is the pizza.
Wolfgang Puck made his reputation on innovating in the pizza kitchen by incorporating French, Asian and Californian influences to the Italian art of pizza-making, so it’s no surprise that the restaurant takes the art of the pizza very seriously. There are over ten varieties on the menu, including the margherita (with burrata mozzarella, tomato sauce and basil), the veggie pizza (with baby squash, blossoms, cherry tomatoes and ricotta cheese), the Wild Mushroom Pizza (covered in mozzarella, caramelized onions and fresh herbs) and the Italian Meta pie, topped with pepperoni, salami, sopresatta and smoked ricotta. If you don’t find the perfect pizza from their wide and creative selection, you can always order a customized pie which will be cooked in the wood-fire oven to your specifications.
The restaurant features a great dessert menu as well, including apple crostada a la mode, ricotta cheesecake, Italian doughnuts and tiramisu, so you’ll be covered if you’ve got a craving for something sweet, all of which taste spectacular with an after dinner cup of coffee.
The restaurant is ideally located right in the beating heart of the energetic CityCenter complex and serves up delicious Italian fare in a fun and comfortable setting. But the real reason to visit is the innovative wood-fired pizzas that will remind you why Wolfgang Puck is one of the most famous chefs in the world.
