Dining Outside the Home: Secret Pizzeria at the Cosmopolitan in Las Vegas, Nevada Word of mouth is your best defense. Ask any bartender or waitress around The Strip where to get real Italian pizza and you’ll be told it’s a secret. So secret, the best direction you’ll get is “It’s tucked in a corner at the end of an unmarked corridor inside the Cosmopolitan. Look for long lines.” It’s away from the Food Court, not listed on the directory, and there’s no indication of advertising anywhere. Because the narrow hallway on the third floor is covered in old vinyl album jackets, at first it becomes a mystery of what lies ahead. And then you see it. Hungry customers are filing by holding checkered wax paper nestling piping hot slices of gooey cheese wedges. One guy takes a mouthful, too impatient to wait any longer. Sold by the slice, or the entire pie, this secret place is where you’ll find authentic New York-style pizza. Its crisp crust and generous toppings leave you craving more.
