Joe's New York Pizza is located in the same shopping plaza as the Las Vegas Premium Outlets (formerly the Belz Factory Outlet mall) on Las Vegas Blvd aka "The Strip". It's about a 5-10 minute drive south of Mandalay Bay. Walking into Joe's the place is nicely put together. By no means classy or fancy but you can tell they put some effort into the decor. Pictures and memorabilia on the walls and traditional gingham tablecloths. Ordered a large pepperoni pizza. The bottom of the crust was just a tad burnt but not enough to take away from the pizza. The crust is thin and as a nice buttery flavor. The pizza is good though not quite good enough to qualify as best in Vegas. However, I'm sure I will eat here again and I would recommend you check it out if you're in the area.

Ate here for dinner tonight. The place is laid back the vibe is so-so. Nothing really caught my eye about this place. Could use a vibe improvement. Not as cool as Grimaldi's. Ordered the plain Margherita pizza -- i.e., basic cheese with basil. The pizza is Neapolitan style. Personal 12" pizzas cooked in a stone oven (I don't know if Settebello's actually uses a stone oven). The pizza is very light and the crust is thin. Very tasty. I guess I like American style pizza better but this was good. Similar to Grimaldi's. I'd have to go to both of those places a few more times to really say which I like better. Settebello's is a little closer to authentic Neapolitan style than Grimaldi's. I would recommend anyone to come here and I will come again.

This is a chain restaurant with a single location in Las Vegas and a few others in Arizona and Texas. When I find out a place is a chain I tend to associate that with less delicious food. Reason being chains are often focused on the business system first and food second. In theory, this is what a good business should do. Take a look at McDonald's; in my opinion they do not make the best hamburgers but they have focused so much on the business system. The product itself takes a backseat. But I'm eating pizzas not businesses. Perhaps its unfair but its an automatic thought process.

The place has a nice atmosphere and was packed around 7pm. They have an outside patio which is great for warm vegas nights. The tables have the classic red and white checkered tablecloths. When you walk in you can see the open kitchen about 10 feet in front of you. The menu is simple and bascially has pizza, calzones, salads, and deserts.

We get a large cheese to taste their pizza straight up. And we also get a large sausage (for the misses, *rimshot*). The pizza is good. Not the best in Vegas. Not better than Rocco's or New York Pizza and Pasta. But good. Better than Villa for sure. It's a little like comparing apples and oranges because this is brick oven pizza which is different from normal pizza. When I think of classic American pizza I don't think of brick oven. But in it's own right it is very good. The dough is standout.

Not the best in Vegas but would recommend anyone to come here.

I read on another site someone reviewing this place as the best pizza they ever had and also the only thing they liked about las vegas. Sounds like hyperbole to me, and I haven't heard anything else about this place, but still, my curiosity was piqued. I get a large cheese pizza.

The appearance does not look like anything special. You can tell something about pizza just by the way it looks. Normally good pizza is thin (of course there is incredible deep dish pizza but that's different) and you can see the cheese and sauce intertwined on the surface. This looked more like a mass of cheese. Typical corner pizza shop.

I take my first bite and it's okay but nothing special. It's better than the typical neighborhood shop, and slightly better than pizza I had at Boston Pizza a while back, but not great. I will say that I did have a clean feeling after eating this pizza, maybe a testament to good ingredients? I wouldn't go out of my way to come back to this place again. On a side note, this place offers huge sizes of pizza. like 30" or something, so if you like a lot of just slightly above average pizza maybe this is your place.

Been wanting to try the pizza here for a long time, but since I don't live nearby it was never really practical. Finally ordered a large cheese pizza. I had high hopes for this place. I had read some online reviews that led me to become curious about Boston Pizza. The pizza was disappointing. Not bad, but not good either. Very generic plain run of the mill pizza. Crust was thicker than I'd like and the slices don't flop downwards (like good NY style pizza) The crust area was big and there were big bubbles of crust near the edge of the pizza making the crust area even larger. Not much in the way of deliciousness here. Would not order a cheese pizza from here again. Not because it's so bad but the whole point of this site is that there's good pizza in Vegas and not to waste your time eating mediocre pizza.

On a side note, I've had their steak and cheese sub (aka Philly Cheese steak) and it's one of the best in town. They offer a couple types of cheese and I recommend getting mozzarella. Plus if you get the double they are huge. Not like other places where you're still hungry after eating their "large". In my opinion, better than Rocco's NY Pizza, Broadway, Pops, Uncle Joe's, Philly Steak Express, and Straight from Philly Steakout

I hadn't heard anything about this place, but I passed it a few times heading out to and from red rock. I'm a sucker for places with New York or East coast in the name, despite several disappointments. Plus it has a guy's name on it which makes me think maybe this is someone who stands by their product. So when I passed by this place I made a mental note to check it out. Got a large cheese pizza because I feel that's the best way to asses a joint. My girlfriend (who has simpler tastes than me) and I agreed the pizza was just average which was a big disappointment, because for some reason I had high expectations of this place. I might try this place again... after trying every other place that looks like it might have potential first.

I read somewhere that this place was supposed to be one of the best places in town for pizza and so I was looking forward to my visit. I ate here yesterday and just got a slice of cheese pizza and a philly cheese steak. The slice of cheese was very mediocre and the philly cheese steak was almost bad. Not sure if the cheese would have been somehow better had I gotten a whole pizza instead of just a slice. But based on this visit, this is not worthy of best pizza in Las Vegas.
