The red sauce is mild and slightly tangy but has a definite "Oomph" too it. Hard to describe. I call it "mmmMMMmmm" sauce. It's just plain good and it always seems to make me want another slice.

Metro Pizza was voted Best Pizza in Las Vegas: Las Vegas Review-Journal  Poll

This is the Best Pizza in Las Vegas


"Awesome pizza". /
"Voted Best in Pizza Las Vegas"
Here is a message from John and Sam, owners of Metro
 on their pizza philosophy:
We believe that a true Pizzeria should be a gathering place for family and friends to relax, share great food and enjoy each other's company.

We have visited hundreds of Pizzerias across the country, learning and gathering recipes to bring our guests a taste of home, wherever home might be."

"Here's the deal about Metro: not only do they have great pizza, but these guys are devoted to pizza. John Arena and his cousin his cousin, Sam Facchini have created a pizza community.

 Their pizza is the Best in Las Vegas, hands down. John Arena is the Professor of Pizza. You can listen to an incredible interview with John, at his page at Legends of Pizza."
