Our first stop on our couples' getaway was Zaffiro's, where we enjoyed liberal platters of spaghetti and Italian sausage and mostaciolli with meatballs as the LUNCH SPECIAL! Let me just say we couldn't finish our helpings. Fantastic fare. The waitstaff is friendly and welcoming, and we left with full bellies. Next time I plan to try their eggplant strips. I'm... More

The crust is.thin & crisp (no sogginess) & always lots of toppings. Great sausage. We also ordered garlic bread to go- YUM ! Also, it is usually very busy... More

The restaurant is very small, but we are lucky enough to get a table for 4 at 7:00 on a Saturday. Two of us shared a cheese,sausauge, mushroom and onion pizza. It was really good, one of the best in town if you like thin crust. They now offer fresh mushrooms in addition to canned mushrooms. Good variety of beer... More

Zero ambiance. Small space. Service ok. Price super reasonable. But the best pizza in Milwaukee. Ate there once a wk for 2.5 years when I lived downtown. Wine is no name and served out of carafe. But as a wine snob, it's really good. Takeout is in paper bag and not box. Environmentally friendly. One of my favorite weeknight spots.... More

My boyfriend and I ate here for lunch. We enjoyed their cheesy bread, a bottle of wine, and a large vegetarian pizza. Our bill was reasonable for all of the delicious food we ate and we had plenty of leftovers for the rest of the week. I would definitely recommend a meal in their intimate environment. You must try this... More

We went her and had under an hour to sit down and eat. We had party of five and ordered pizza and mushrooms we were not disappointed with the food or service. They were speedy and freindly and we got out of there in 50 minutes. :) PS the season beef was great !!!

This place hasn't changed it decades. Don't come here if you're looking for some upscale, froo froo bistro. Come here if you're looking for thin (I mean extra thin) pizza made from heaven. They have sandwiches and pastas on the menu, but honestly, I've never ventured past the pies. They are way too good. We started with some apps-the eggplant... More

Holy cow!! This thin crust pizza is one of the best I've ever had. The atmosphere was pub like and the staff was friendly. This is a must see in Milwaukee. We will return.

This place was founded in 1954 with a reputation which is still well deserved. The very best ultra thin crust pizza. Go for the sausage, cheese, mushroom and sliced tomatoes.
