I hate giving a "poor" rating . . . but their attempt to resolve a bad situation was far from "fair" hence the rating. I/we have been long time customers of Balistreri's Bluemound Inn . . . we dine here several times per year. It's...More

Always look forward to a meal at Balistreri's! You can count on delicious, thin crust, crispy pizza with fresh toppings! Enjoyed the special wine, an Italian Red which was tasty ($36). One big disappointment we should have expected: no Fried Eggplant on Fridays when they...More

I met a colleague here for lunch. I had never been to Bluemound Inn before, though I have been by here thousands of times. I was surprised at how nice it is inside, not that the outside is terrible, but it does not denote what...More

Had lunch here recently on the patio on a pleasant day. I have been to the 68th street location, but only for the pizza. As the title suggests, the review is rather hit and miss. Hits include the fried eggplant which was absolutely terrific. Super-light,...More
