    I've been hearing a lot about "secret pizza"! Apparently it has no sign and there's no info about it anywhere. I guess its something you just have to know about.

    I'm really intrigued and would like to check it out when I'm there in a couple of weeks.

    Anyone know how to get there? Or prices or if its any good?

    How good is it compared to pop up pizza at the plaza?

    Thanks

    3rd Floor

    From what I hear is that it is the pizza place on the third floor of Cosmo.

    Take the escalator up to the 3rd floor, look for a hallway across from the escalators. The hallway will have covers from old record albums displayed on the wall. Walk down the hallway (about 50ft) and you are there at hidden pizza. This is a favorite hang out for the club crowd late at night. I've had a couple of slices of pizza there a couple of times....I've had better, but I'm no pizza expert. Service was quick, price was reasonable (for the Strip)....scarfed down my slices and was on my way.

    Glasses can affect your vison; especially when they have been emptied several times....

    I tried it for the first time this week. It is open until 3 am and is located as described by previous poster. I had the "white pizza"; it was fantastic. Now I'm in Canada, not NY or Chicago, so it was among the best slices I've ever had. Worth a late night stop.

    We stop by this place for a slice every trip. It's quite good, IMO. It's true that there are no signs, it's not on any directories etc. Whitejackets directions are spot on.

    The pizza here is good and worth the stop. I was at the Cosmo when they opened and I thought this was the dumbest idea I'd ever heard of... I was wrong (and that never happens). They get more chatter with the "hidden" concept than the EVER couldda received with the traditional signage, etc.

    I spent the first 20 years of my professional career in the pizza industry. Wish I'd known then that all you gotta do is hide the place!!!!

    Don't worry it's not like an Indiana Jones type adventure trying to find it. When you get to the third floor you can't miss the crowds of people hanging around eating pizza, walking from it and towards it, and the obvious smell of a pizzeria wafting from that hallway. It's right near the escalator.

    Around $5+ per slice depending if you get toppings. If there are enough of you it's better to get a pie. They'll make it fresh.

    seating is not all that great or all that abundant so if you are going to go when it is crowded you might plan on being one of those that are STANDING around eating pizza......so if you are not in the mood (or condition) to stand while eating pizza plan to go another time or when there will be less club kiddies

    I was disappointed. I wanted to go on an adventure to find it, and there it was. Out in the open.

    My first day on the strip usually always results in a death march where I always go south and then back to center strip. One thing is always there for me on my way back after one too many: Secret Pizza. It just has become a ritual now and I take anyone I am with over there. Sure there are other places to pick up a slice, but this is just a fun little place to stop by.

    Hidden Pizza

    i tried to find it on my last visit, but I couldn't remember where it was. I wish I had found because we ended up spend $20+ each for the lunch buffet, but the food there just isn't our taste and found very little to eat and left still hungry.

    Not the 2nd floor, but the 3rd floor, when you hit the landing of the 3rd floor...you can likely walk in a straight line (avoid the pool table and chairs in your way) and you will come across a long hallway with pictures of old records..a pinball machine/video game? will be down there as well.

    Just do yourself a favor and get a slice of the White Pizza. Seriously. You'll regret it if you don't.

    Here is a pic of what the "Secret Hallway" looks like.
    A good snack.
    And like others said, not much seating.

    I only tried it once and was not impressed.
    Vaguely recall you will see pinball machines down the hall.
    If you see any just head there.

    Cosmo's secret pizza

    Well, we finally tried the well publicized "secret pizza joint" on the Cosmopolitan's 3rd floor and have to admit it was one of the best. I personally liked the white but the rest of our party raved on about the regular pepperoni. I would suggest if there are 3 or more, it's a better deal to order a whole pizza opposed to single slices. That pizza will be a must goto everytime we are in Vegas.

    I couldn't agree more. Finally got to try it last week and it really was a great slice of pizza. Loved how laid back the atmosphere was as well. Ended up going twice and will definately be back again. The white slice was awesome, but the meatball was nothing to complain about either.
