A new look and a new era debuts for the Jerry’s Nugget Casino’s dining options in North Las Vegas. Long famed its coffee shop and bakery, the former Uncle Angelo’s Pizza Joint has been transformed into the Contento Pizzeria & Bar, featuring a full-service dining room, a bar and lounge area and a “Contento To-Go” counter for take-out orders, including two slices of pizza and a glass of house wine priced at $12.
Behind the menu, executive chef Ismaele Romano, former executive pizza manager at Pizzeria Sapori, in Newport Beach, California.
Featuring a wall of bookcases showcasing some of the more than 50 wine choices priced under $100, diners can choose antipasti, pasta dishes and the namesake pizza options, including a $9 margherita and the $12 “Contento,” topped with white beans puree, housemade sausages and broccoli rabe.
Other selections include a $14 rigatoni, $10 arancini Siciliani and entrees like the $23 branzino, $18 salmon and the $21, 18 ounce New York steak, “sliced over organic arugula, shaved parmigiana and sautéed mushrooms.”
