Depending on which critic you read, 800 Degrees Neapolitan Pizzeria at the Monte Carlo either has a problem with its counter service or a sped-up version of Settebello.

First the bad news. Al Mancini says the ordering process there is a "giant pain in the ass." He blames poor labeling of the ingredients as the culprit.

"… you may find yourself stuck behind someone trying to differentiate between soppressata, prosciutto di Parma and rosemary ham. To make matters worse, the sign on the wall lists all toppings as costing $1.50 (which is already a little steep for a smattering of capers), but a handful are actually twice that price."

He suggest take-out menus to help customers order.

He adds that you have to pick up your own pizza at the counter (albeit 90 seconds later) and the takeout boxes only hold one slice.

On the good news side, Brock Radke says "800 Degrees is fun, easy and consistently delicious," although he does note that the topping prices are high ("Yes, you're still eating on the Strip.").

He recommends the Vongole with clams, pecorino cheese, garlic and no tomato sauce, and the cheeseless Napoletana with rock shrimp, anchovies, garlic, oregano and capers.
