Experience Authentic Italian Pizza in Cincinnati

Located in the modern Pendleton neighborhood, Brick’d pizza is unique to Hard Rock Cincinnati and it’s in the middle of all of the action. No matter whether you’re just in the neighborhood or a tourist in your own city, this Cincinnati pizza restaurant won’t disappoint. 

Brick’d is the newest addition to our casino’s dining options. Open every day from 11 am until the early hours of the morning, Italian favorites such as Neapolitan-style pizza and creamy tiramisu are never far. Read on to hear all about the revamped restaurant. 

Savor our Signature Dishes 

Brick’d Pizza boasts fresh artisanal ingredients such as cremini mushrooms, fire-roasted bell peppers, and sweet Italian sausage. Customize your pizza or choose from the myriad of signature pizza combinations. Either way, your tastebuds will be satisfied at this Cincinnati pizza restaurant! 


Classic combinations such as tomato, fresh mozzarella, and basil to bolder combinations of bourbon-brown sugar BBQ sauce, red onions, and tomatoes will leave your mouth watering. With all pizzas cooked in our brick oven, you can experience that signature Neopolitan taste while dining in Cincinnati. 


Brick’d Has a Flavor for Everyone


Dare to be different with a Brick’d wedge! This pizza-sandwich fusion dish is the perfect option if you want to try something new without straying too far from that classic brick-oven pizza taste. 


If you’re looking for a lighter alternative to pizza, opt for one of the fresh Brick’d salads. Keep it simple with a fresh mozzarella and heirloom tomato salad, topped with a smooth balsamic vinaigrette. Or go for authentic Italian fare with an antipasto salad chock full of fresh romaine, three Italian meats, and a sweet oregano vinaigrette. 


If you want to end your meal on a high note, order one of our desserts. Treat yourself to a slice of decadent dark cherry cheesecake with a hazelnut-graham cracker crust, creamy tiramisu, or a fluffy chocolate mousse trio. Regardless of what you order, Brick’d will have your palette satisfied from start to finish.
