Serving Las Vegas for nearly forty years one might assume Metro Pizza has the delivery game down to a science, but by utilizing a central phone number and e-mail specifically for catering John Arena and Sam Facchini’s Pizzeria goes one step further than most to assure seamless customer service.
Featuring locations North, South, East and West, attentive staff acting as triage to assure timely arrival of Food, utensils, plates and condiments, it was on Thursday that #supportlocal lunch once again received everything ten minutes early with staff ready to dig in.
Suitable for almost any budget, though recent changes have eliminated some items with the online menu yet to reflect those adjustments, it was half-selecting and otherwise deferring the order largely to Metro that four Pies plus Bread, Entrees, Salad and Dessert were received for under $15 per guest, the all-inclusive cost predictably yielding enough for all plus plenty of leftovers.
Now the tenth time delivering to this office, in addition to a dozen or more visits to locations on Decatur or Sky Pointe, it was beginning with Salad that many once again praised Metro’s duo of housemade Dressings, though those more concerned with eating while Food was still temperature appropriate predictably went straight for the recently launched “Zamboni” Pizza complete with two Meats, Roasted Peppers and a generous drizzle of Hot Honey.
Moving next to Meatballs, the combination of Pork and Beef with almost no binder predictably dense and rich in contrast to tangy Tomato Sauce, it is no surprise that Metro’s Sausage, Peppers and Onions also performed beautifully amongst a staff that frequently gravitates towards pronounced spicing and big flavors.
Not about to pass by 86th Street, the cold-fermented Crust remaining defiantly light despite its thickness even after traveling ten miles, the decision to add a stuffed Pie on this visit was due to a request for “just” Cheese by some guests, a gooey blend of three between two layers delicious on its own or dipped in Sauce while another standard Cheese Pizza showed off Metro’s Ingredient quality in a more expected way.
Finishing with Metro Pizza’s Dessert platter for the first time, fifteen filled-to-order Cannoli outlasting more familiar choices such as Chocolate Cake and Espresso-soaked Tiramisu, suffice it to say that recently renamed “Four High Carrot Cake” has lost none of what made it one of Sin City’s best while New York-Style Cheesecake has been upgraded by a crackling layer of Sugar.
N/A: Making it blog policy to not ‘rate’ places based on catering alone there is a reason John and Sam have been successfully serving Las Vegas for so long, a good part of it skill and doing things the right way, but also by hiring good people and focusing on the customer to deliver on their promises no matter how big or small the budget.
RECOMMENDED: 86th Street Square Pie, Meatballs, Zamboni, Chopped Salad, Cannoli, Four High Carrot Cake.
