If you like thin crust pizza, this is the place to find the best in Milwaukee. Due to a variety of reasons, hadn't been there in a couple of years. Not much for decor, but the food is still great! If you have two or more people, try the Zaffiro Salad and then order whatever kind of pizza you prefer.... More

Great sauce. Garlic bread w marinara is a good starter. We each had 12 in pizzas to choose or own toppings. Not the biggest pizza in the world but 12 in its a good size w some left over. Probably the best pizza in this town. I'll go back. Service is pretty good. Wine list average at best.

My wife and I went to Milwaukee last weekend, for the first time. We went primarily to attend the Wisconsin State Fair, and being a foodie, I researched our dining options ahead of time. As soon as we got to town, we went to Zaffiro's.....yes, even before checking into our hotel. I had mixed feelings from the reviews, as some... More

Arriving early on a Saturday evening it was not surprising that the place was full. Thanks to their extra effort, they were able to accommodate our group of 6 with only a short wait. It was certainly worth the wait. We ordered 3 pizzas and they were fabulous! Probably one of the best pizzas we have ever had! Good thing... More

This local bar/pizza joint is in the "hip" area north of downtown Milwaukee near the university of Wis. Nothing fancy about it but the food is very good. It has been there a long time and we make a point of visiting because it is always a good and reasonably priced meal.

因為到訪的時間是american memory day所以很多店都沒有開,走著走著看到它1954年決定就是它了!一進門有一個小Bar跟觀看球賽,另一邊就是用餐的地方.點餐的時候服務生很專業的提供我們可以怎麼搭配sandwich內容物!於是我們點了Pepperoni Special.Italian Beef Sandwich(麵包超級好吃)! 缺點就是環境舊了一點!!不然一切都很好!

Are you looking for: A huge antipasto salad to split with your family? Crispy thin crust pizza that flakes and crackles with every bite? A glass of wine or bottle of beer (or a cocktail) to wash everything down? Warm atmosphere, friendly staff, and steady crowd? Zaffiro's delivers all of that in their converted home turned pizza place. Yes, the... More

Although my violin teacher's home, now razed for a private parking lot was right next store to Zaffiro's when I took lessons there in the early 1960's, I had not been there for a meal until a few years ago on one of my all-too-infrequent visits to my home town and my parents, who still live there. My parents and... More

My return was 17 years in the making. Moved from the area and made it back for a reunion and it did not disappoint! There is something about this timeless place that I just love. The pizza is perfect for me. Love the small "joint" feel, love the small glasses of wine and beer glasses. Brady street has changed a... More
