A branch of the popular Angelina's Pizzeria chain has been shut down by the Southern Nevada Health District, following a routine inspection. The 5821 E. Charleston Blvd. location in Sunrise received 25 demerits on July 1, but the discovery of "not potable water or hot water" was deemed an imminent health hazard and merited immediate closure. Other issues included proper temperatures for potentially hazardous foods.
The pizza chain operates six locations including outposts in Henderson, Downtown and within the Riviera's food court. Currently, the other five locales are all operating with A grade status.
The Charleston branch's last inspection earned an A grade in October 2012, but the restaurant has flirted with problems over the last four years with three C grades and one B to match four A grade inspections. In addition to New York-style pizza, Angelina's menu includes pasta, salad, wings and subs. Their first Las Vegas store opened in 1999.
The Southern Nevada Health District routinely shuts down restaurants that receive more than 40 demerits. Restaurants have the option of requesting a re-inspection before the next scheduled inspection.
