Not many cafes are open after 9pm in Milwaukee. Open until 11pm Fri/Sat and 10pm during the week, Transfer has a great selection of draft beers and espresso, as well as an amazing menu of personal pizzas and sandwiches. Allow me to recommend the Bazilio salad for low-carb diners: complex flavors, filling and healthy. Great lunch menu. Pizzas can be... More

Not as good as it used to be when the original chef was there. Apparently he quit a couple months ago and you can definitely taste the difference in the food. Went from a "must go" place to a "ya, that was good, I guess". Plus I'm pretty sure our waiter was on something. Glad I had a coupon!

Transfer Pizza places the bar pretty high for pizza enthusiasts. I consider myself a foodie and have tried many restaurants around the United States. This is my FAVORITE place for pizza and dinner in general. Their hand-tossed crust has the perfect crunch and texture and doesn't feel like a greasy gut bomb after you eat it. The staff is very...

I have been to Transfer pizzeria Cafe several times. Lunch and evening. The Pasta and pizzas were great both times,and very very friendly service. Have always found parking, eventhough it's street parking. I would recommend this place to anyone looking for a fun atmosphere and great food. You won't be dissapointed.

We were searching for a "good" pizza place when Transfer came up as having good reviews. We were a little skeptical with a neighborhood we drove thru to get there but when we got closer, our concerns were gone. The place had a neat feel to it. We were seated quickly and greeted by our sever just as fast. We... More
