I know they have other Italian food, but the Pizza is what we go for. This is a small place above street level that is crowded during peak week-end times. We take-out about half the time. They serve cocktails, Italian food, Pizza and beer. Family friendly. Pizzas can be ordered with just about anything on them.

We waited for Lisa's to open on our recent trip to Milwaukee: 4 pm. An Italian salad to share and the delicious pizza I remember from high school made it worth waiting for! The sauce was enough for my husband who usually orders double sauce, too. The leftovers extended my joy. I will go back any chance I get.

This place has a very warm, friendly atmosphere and great Italian food and spirits. The fried eggplant makes a good appetizer but I honestly have a hard time ordering beyond the pizza. It's just that good. When my son was a toddler I would order one or two meat balls just for him to have something to work on until... More

Have not been here for sometime and quickly noticed new furnishings, shiney new menus with the familiar selection of pizzas, appetizers, and drinks. Food arrived hot and well prepared by an attentive waitress. The pizza exactly to specifications, crispy crust but not burnt! Really like this place!

I have been eating pizza here for over 45 years, and it has always been consistently great thin-crust pizza. The place has been in the same family since day one, and our favorite waitress from the old days, who was the daughter of the owner, is now the owner, and her daughter is now one of our favorite servers. Besides... More

Got carry out from this place last night. It was my first time going here and I have to say I was impressed. The pizza was among the best I have had in Milwaukee. There are many good pizza places in Milwaukee but this place is very down to earth feel to it. They had the perfect amount of sauce,... More

Food cold, mold on water glasses, waiting 45 minutes for food, just miss the old Lisa's Pizzaria. Don't know what happened but very disappointed with the food. Last time I will be here. I think they are more concerned with the carry out business.

Lisa's is always dependable for very good pizza, whether for eat in or carry out. Very thin crust, good amount of cheese - without being overwhelming. Good quality toppings. The salads aren't as special. Not bad, but nothing to get to excited about. We've never had any entrees there. Service can be spotty. Usually it's good and attentive, but every... More

They won't give me the recipe so I am a bitt miffed. Hard to fault this pie with its sauce so good it must have some sort of drug in it. Sometimes the pizzas can be a little salty - if you watch salt, may want to ask them to go easy. The thin crust is also terrific.
