In 1982 Freddie Glusman opened Pieros Italian Cuisine on Karen Avenue. It quickly became a hangout for Las Vegas locals and celebrities like the Rat Pack, politicians, and some of those businessmen in the casino industry with Italian surnames, the local color guys. Five years later, Pieros moved to its current location at 355 Convention Center Drive. The restaurant is walking distance from the Las Vegas Convention Center, The Strip, and a short hop from major hotels. The venue is licensed for 345 seats and has six separate dining rooms. Pieros is open seven days a week for dinner; however, for special events the restaurant opens for business breakfasts & luncheon meetings. The menu is the same as it was when the restaurant opened with many nightly specials. The decor includes Aldo Luongo lithographs, original oils by Jos Bellver, and huge fresh floral displays on antique pine tables. Pieros is known for its fabulous cuisine, unique atmosphere, and its five star service.
