You would think that any restaurant that has the word “pizza” in its name would make a great pie, right? That’s not the case with the Vegas outpost of this California chain. It was average at best and I can think of at least five places off the top of my head that make a better one.

Pizzas come in three different sizes: personal, 14″, and 18″. My kid and I tried a classic cheese pizza and a chicken pesto pizza. The personal size is a narrow and elongated flatbread shape. The cheese pizza wasn’t bad, but the crust was just too thick. The chicken pesto had the same type of crust and was surprisingly bland considering all the toppings on it.

We also tried the baked brie and fig flatbread appetizer. The delicate and crispy crust was similar to a cracker crust. Topped with plenty of cheese and fig, it made for a delicious app that was plenty big to share.

The flourless chocolate cake ended our meal. The dense cake had a raspberry spread between the cake and the icing/topping. It was another dish meant to be shared as its richness was too much for me to finish on my own.

There are plenty of enticing items on their menu so I’m sure I’ll be back. But chances are I’ll skip the pizza.
