Has Pizza Week at Eater Vegas inspired you to rush out and run your own pie joint ? Here's how you can. A mystery real estate ad is selling a New York-style pizza restaurant, trading on a reputation of over a dozen years of business in Las Vegas. This particular location opened in 2012.

For $249,000 you can be the proud owner of an authentic pizza place by way of "Da Bronx." They were once featured on local FOX 5 news segment, as well as recipients of a positive review in the September 2013 Las Vegas Review Journal Dining Out column. Once inside, you'll think you are in New York City with slices of pizza alongside a full Italian menu from lasagna to cannoli.

The owner and brokers will only reveal the actual location and name if a prospective buyer has the right credentials. But, as usual, allow us to provide some thoughtful speculation as to which institution is looking to sell.

Need some of that salesman's spiel to persuade you? The owners say the location is making "g-o-o-o-d money," not that standard "good money." The declared gross on the property is $600,000 per year, with $150,000 in cash flow.

No need to buy a new oven; $1,000,000 in fixtures are part of the price. The 2,350-square-foot space requires a monthly rent of $5,583. And if you are a rookie to the pizza biz, the owner is wiling to spend two weeks training you. By way of explanation for the sale, a note explains they currently operate too many active businesses.

We have our informed guess on which restaurant is up for sale, after the jump.

If the New York and Bronx references didn't provide a clue, referencing an instantly searchable online review gave the game away. Rocco's NY Pizzeria on Rainbow Boulevard run by owner Rocco Crea more than fits the description.

Crea's first pizza store on West Charleston Boulevard has been in business for more than a decade and is not for sale.
