AROUND TOWN: Lino’s Pizzeria a great Italian stop in North Las Vegas

On West Craig Road in North Las Vegas lies a hidden gem. Lino’s Pizzeria and Italian Restaurant, 4210 W. Craig Road, has the best Italian food on that side of Las Vegas (at least that I’ve tried), bar none.

There is a nice variety of dishes on the menu from carbonara, gnocchi and spaghetti a la olio to subs and pizza. Their meatballs are great, and each entree comes with a complimentary basket of garlic bread. I haven’t tried many of their desserts, but their cheesecake is delicious.

The best part about this place, though, is the prices. They are fairly inexpensive, and their portions are big. I always have leftovers.

They don’t have a liquor license yet, so no beer or wine for the over-21 set, but they do offer takeout, so if that’s a make or break for you, just take it home.

If you don’t trust me, my dad, who hails from an Italian section of Brooklyn, New York, also thinks this place is one of the best Italian offerings in Vegas. Just go check it out for yourself, but go hungry.

Movie posters might soon be based on your clicks

You may have thought you left Blockbuster behind, but the basic way we browse movies hasn’t changed all that much. We peruse poster after poster, kind of like walking the aisles of a ‘90s-era video store. That one poster image, meant to appeal to as many people as possible, is often all we see before […]
