You sorta become immune to the charms of Wolfgang Puck's restaurants since they appear to be everywhere (McPuck's). On our most recent trip to Vegas we walked past this particular place several times on our way from our hotel Aria to the Strip. Timing is everything. On our way out one early evening we walked by the Pizzeria & Cucina and frankly it smelled really good. A quick check of the menu assured my wife, daughter and myself we all saw something we might like. Seated immediately, the host and wait staff made us feel at home - they were engaging and employed a team approach. Caesar salad, octopus salad, margherita pizza and a side of Tuscan potatoes later, we were very happy with our choices, the portion and the value for the $$. The tasty valpolicella didn't hurt either, The meal was a great bang for the buck. Couple nights later, despite the many dining options available, we went back to Puck's place before our Zarkana performance ... another terrific dinner with some of the usual suspects and spaghetti with meatballs replacing the pizza. We lingered over dessert and more of the wine. Here's to knocking out stereotypes - this Wolfgang Puck restaurant cast its own image and provided fantastic value. Recommended.

When the food finally arrived, it was very good. I had the Rigatoncini. The service and the amount of time it took for food to arrive took forever though.

Wolfgang Puck is a well known chef but most of his restaurants are closer to fine dining. So an opportunity to taste food inspired by such a great chef is an experience in its own. The pasta dishes are wonderful both texture and taste. The pizzas are more adventurous I ordered one pizza with toppings that meshed well together but was extremely salty due to the aged Italian slices of prosciutto. The zeppolis are fried fresh, filled with a nice not overly sweet fruit filling, and after a dip in the caramel sauce; it is like a bite of heaven. Family friendly and usually do not need a reservation in advance.

I shared a pizza for lunch, with a veal ravioli for my main. Both excellent! I came back for dinner another night and had spaghetti and meatballs - very good!

My sister and I stopped here for lunch on a recent trip to Vegas. We split a Margherita pizza and an order of calamari. The pizza was alright, but nothing spectacular. The calamari, however, was fantastic. It comes with a marinara sauce as well as a basil aioli. The basil aioli mad the dish! The restaurant was located inside of Crystals and was a good place to people watch. We arrived right at 11:30, when they opened and got right in.
