Yummy!!

My husband and I split the Garlic Sauce and Mozzarella pizza and the Paisano. Both were excellent. The pizza crust is so yummy I could eat it plain! Love the pizza here. We've never been disappointed!!

Went to Transfer Pizzeria, got there early (5:30 p.m.) because on a Friday night it's SRO. Parking was a bit of a drag, especially having to walk a bit in February, but it was worth it. Mischa was our server. A big, burly, happy bearded ginger who gave us exceptional service. We had the Bob's Special with additional anchovies and... More

We went here on a Wednesday evening, and it was surprisingly busy! Nevertheless, we received excellent service from the moment we walked in the door. The atmosphere is really unique, and it is really awesome how they keep the history of the building alive. They even include a snipet of the history of the building on the back of their... More

I visited Transfer on a Saturday night, we got there just in time and got the last open table. It is fairly small, so people really crowd into the small waiting area - so much so it's difficult to squeeze out the door! The food was excellent. We had the smoked salmon bruschetta for the appetizer - it was excellent.... More

I love the Margarita Pizza! Hand tossed, super fresh ingredients, tastes great! And the Spinach and Artichoke Dip is the best I've ever had!

Had been looking for a good Cuban sandwich in Milwaukee since going to Key West. This was the best so far. Boyfriend had pizza and he also said it was very good. Great bartender. Will be going back for sure.

Went there today with the family and the service was excellent, the place was clean and cozy, and the pizzas delicious. Our only complaints were the sizes of the pie and there aren't any gluten free pastas. A large pizza feeds about 2-3 people but a small serves one person. That's a lot smaller than your average and there's no... More

We visited Milwaukee and heard this place was good, and it definitely was. Very cool atmosphere and a nice bar in the middle of it all. One of the best thin crust pizzas we have ever had. Check it out- it will not disappoint!

I love going here and bringing people here. Their pizza is fantastic and offers some unique choices I have not seen anywhere else. Comfortable sitting at the bar or counter by myself. Tell myself I'm NOT going to finish a whole small pizza by myself, but usually do, its so good!

The roasted pepper soup was just fabulous...and the Gamberetti pasta was terrific. Although I wrote a review sometime in September when we last visited them, it seems to have been 'lost'. In that review I complemented 'Dani' our waitress because she was just outstanding and asked that she be given kudos .When I spoke with Dani last night and asked... More
