Pizza Forte, the quick-serve pizza joint from Ferraro's Italian Restaurant & Wine Bar chef Mimmo Ferraro and his wife Nikki, opened its second location today at the Hard Rock Hotel. Located near the pools, the 1,200-square-foot location features a walk-up counter open seven days per week. Guests can also order from their hotel rooms.
Pizza Forte specializes in round New York-style pizzas and square, Roman-style pan pizzas by the slice with toppings such as homemade sausage and fresh vegetables, as well as gluten-free options. Also find housemade meatball sandwiches and three types of Hofmann hot dogs in 100 percent beef, pork-and-beef and pork-and-veal varieties. The location also offers to-go items and hotel room delivery. Domestic and imported beer, as well as red and white wine will be available.
The space features white-washed brick walls with accent walls in reclaimed wood decked out in baking pans and cooking tools, chalkboards and drawings.
The first Pizza Forte opened earlier this year at Sunset Station in Henderson. The family plans to open nine additional locations in the next 18 to 24 months.
