Pizza Rock

Based in Downtown Las Vegas, this restaurant offers six different types of pizza that is just perfect! Plus, the atmosphere is one of energy and fun; making this place a perfect restaurant for those looking to unwind, pre-drink perhaps but still eat fantastic food.

    Great round up! I’ve been to Las Vegas a couple of times, so my favourite restaurant is Mon Ami Gabi in the Paris hotel – the views from their patio are spectacular!

    So much good food. I love Thai food. Pizza Rock looks pretty amazing with the cascading layers of cheese. I have an obsession with frozen custard, so I have been to Luv It, and it is simply amazing.
