Nice, bright atmosphere and interesting building/business history. Very busy, popular place. We sat by the big windows facing1st Street. Great service, friendly waitstaff. Had a Caprese Sandwich with vegan cheese which was excellent! Pizzas are wonderful too. Love the cocktail list. I rated this restaurant as "Very Good," but will be happy to bump that up to an "Excellent" if... More

Multiple visits to this interesting venue have not disappointed. Previous visits were long ago enough for us to have forgotten the size and quality of the salads and appetizers. Spinach & artichoke dip with Italian bread and a salad were too much for two to split & finish, as was the large garlic infused fiesta pizza. The crust was thin,... More

Have been here several times and went with my daughter, son-in-law and the baby. Normally really good service and fairly quick. Last night most everything went wrong. First, was a short wait we were told that went to a half hour. To long for a baby and had they been a bit more accurate, we might have made another choice.... More

I've tried several pizza places in Milwaukee and this is where my wife return time and time again. Pizza Man...so overrated. The Paisano pizza is absurdly amazing...and try with the salami bruschetta and one of their many tap beers. Great place...proud it's in Milwaukee. Also, Mischa, the waiter is hilarious and awesome at his job.

The location was interesting. Area is trendy. We were surprised by how busy this place was for 9pm on a Tuesday. We now know why! Upcycled pharmacy with a relaxed and welcoming decor. Not fancy but nice seating and local art on the walls. Tables were well spaced with simple candle and cloth napkin rolled silverware. Our server was friendly... More

We were here on a Monday around 3pm so we didn't have to deal with crowds and it was easy to park. We really enjoy this place. It has a great, unique atmosphere, good service, and good food. Our pizza was delicious, nice thin crust and tasty toppings. It went well with a couple of beers. The server made sure... More

We took a visit to Milwaukee and based on Trip Advisor went here for Pizza. One of the best I have had. The ambiance is great for family or a date. Highly Recommended.

Crust was soggy, couldn't pick the slice up, had to eat with a fork. The pepperoni was smoke flavored. The garlic bread tasted like buttered toast. Where was the garlic? Not worth the drive from New Berlin.

We walked in and were greeted kindly, ordered a delicious pizza and some adult beverages. Our waitress (Madelyn, hopefully spelled right) was super sweet and very on top of everything. This was our first time in Milwaukee and when we come back, we will eat here again.
