Secret Pizza Place at The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas

No fancy sign or entrance, just a discreet hallway leads to Secret Pizza.

The quest to find cheap eats at The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas hotel is a futile effort by looking at a list of the hotel restaurants. Not listed on any directory or even on the hotel website is a pizza place that is so cool it has no name. This tiny eatery tucked at the end of a hallway on the hotel's third level is often referred to as Secret Pizza.

If you can't find it, just ask any employee at the Cosmopolitan and they will send you in the right direction. The hallway entrance to Secret Pizza is lined with vintage album covers and almost feels like walking back in time once the Galaga video arcade game comes into view in the eatery's small dining area comprised of counters and chairs against the wall.

It's a no frills place with a push letter menu board and likely one of the reasons why this is one of the best bargains on the Strip. Starting at $4.50 for a slice (50 cents for extra toppings) or $24 for a whole pizza pie, the eatery also offers up salads ($6-$8), desserts (cannoli and cheesecake, $4.50 each), red and white wine ($6), beer ($5-$6) and the usual selection of soft drinks. The drinks are even served up in a plastic red disposable tumbler with no cover.

I ordered a slice of pepperoni and though it may not look like something anything special, the pizza dough is made fresh and the cheese grated daily and topped with imported pepperoni. Resembling a thin crust pizza, the slice has crust with a chewy crunch and a bright tomato and cheese flavor.

Secret pizza is open from lunch and usually stays open until 4am. The place has become popular with late night clubbers and hotel workers in the area.
