The handmade dough on Red Rock's 21 specialty pizzas is loaded with from-scratch sauces and inspired specialty toppings, and the hand-selected, oven-baked jumbo chicken wings eschew the boiling-oil baths of the deep fat fryer. Delve into the pizza menu to discover creations forged from slow-cooked marinara sauce, oven-roasted garlic, smoked salmon, smoked gouda, and smoked hookahs. Break an appetite with a large Widowmaker ($20.99), topped with ham, salami, Italian sausage, arezzio pepperoni, black olives, and mozzarella. The eponymous jumbo 18-inch Red Rock delivers a massive payload of classic pizza taste with each slice, packing on Italian sausage, arezzio pepperoni, honey-baked ham, mushrooms, sweet red onion, green bell peppers, black olives, and mozzarella ($24.99). Red Rock's wings ($8.99 for 10) emerge from their convection inferno and unite with their saucy soulmates, dousing taste buds in garlic parmesan, barbecue, honey barbecue, and heat-adjustable buffalo flavors.
Nora's Wine Bar & Osteria fosters a social dining experience with a menu of authentic sharable Italian plates and an innovative way to serve wine that opens up dozens of eclectic bottles for the tasting. Consummate serial monogamists, each of Nora's dinner courses would prefer to be paired up with a glass of wine, making the pre-paired cheese and wine flight of nine cheeses and three wines ($28 per person, must have at least two participants) an elegantly orchestrated delight. An appetizer of bruschette, such as eggplant or chick peas and sardine (choice of three for $10), a selection of small bites ($10–$15), and pizzas ($15) make palatable passables. Dive fork-first into creatively concocted entrees, such as the crêpe lasagna ($12.50) or the half rabbit served five ways ($32). Or, keep it traditional with organic grass-fed lamb chops ($24 small/$44 large). The lunch menu pares down the dinner menu and adds a selection of panini served with fries or salad, such as the wild boar with roasted mushrooms ($13.50). The lunch menu also offers a pasta trio tasting, which includes a glass of sangria, chef's crostini, unlimited tastings of three different pastas, and gelato for $17.
New York transplant Gerry and his son Shaun, owners of East Side Pizza at Boca Park, understand just how high their home state sets the bar for great family pizzerias. So several times a week, they send out orders for shipments of fresh pizza dough from their supplier back on the East Coast. It's just one of the little things that ends up having a big impact on the taste and texture of their hand-tossed, New York–style, thin-crust pizzas. The fresh dough is covered with housemade marinara sauce and topped with both traditional and surprising ingredients, creating specialty pies such as the barbecue chicken, chicken marsala, and eggplant rollatini, each sold whole or by the slice.
Their full menu features calzones, pastas and hot sandwiches, including their signature meatball sub topped with mozzarella. Choose to dine in, and you'll find yourself in a comfortable dining room surrounded by flat-screen TVs and sports memorabilia.

A 2002 Best of Las Vegas winner from the Las Vegas Review-Journal, Northside Nathan’s Detroit Pizza has been slinging its signature sauce, melty cheese, and always-fresh ingredients atop a flavorful square of medium crust ever since it moved from Motown to Sin City in 1997. Northside Nathan's 6-, 11-, and 16-inch pizzas delight hungry gamblers and musical-theater enthusiasts alike with the Guys & Dolls pile-up of pepperoni, sausage, and onions ($7.50–$20.95), or the Nicely Nicely's pie—a flavorful mix of roast chicken, garlic, and mushrooms ($7.80–$21.95).
When chef John McKibben first opened Grape Street Cafe in 1997, his small restaurant took a back seat to a large front-of-the-house retail area where customers could purchase house-made sauces, salads, and high-quality wines. Though the concept quickly transitioned to focus on the fresh, house-made dishes flying out of his kitchen, McKibben has held on to his retail license and continues to encourage his diners to finish their meal by picking up a bottle of wine to go or commissioning a self-portrait painted with balsamic vinegar.
With the exception of a handful of rotating nightly specials, the menu has stayed largely the same, and Chef McKibben credits the cuisine as the eatery's 14-year secret to success. Dinner finds the shop's signature hot sandwiches, creamy pastas, and pizzas sharing top billing alongside nationally inspired entrees such as a baked Alaskan halibut topped with lemon beurre-blanc and Colorado lamb in a sweet-and-sour mint glaze. However, the diverse menu is designed to complement the restaurant’s real draw: its extensive wine selection. Up to 90 vinos are available by the glass each day, with selections that hail from as near as Napa and as far away as Mosel, Bordeaux, Rioja, and Mos Eisley.
