I have been going to Lisa's for OVER 55 years. That's right.. BEST PIZZA and BEST EGG PLANT there is. I get 1/2 order of EGG PLANT EVERY time before the pizza. BEST service BEST EVERYTHING period.

I have been coming here since I have been a kid. It is wonderful and although updated, it has not lost a bit of its charm. Home-made salad dressings, killer eggplant appi and the most wonderful thin crust pizza. Service is charming. Prices are fair. Family run and eveyone is so friendly. They lost their amazing juke box that they... More

We had a group of six for dinner. When we entered the restaurant, we weren't quite sure what to do as not one of the wait staff welcomed us. We patiently waited to be acknowledged. They were extremely busy. Our patience paid off as we were seated within twenty minutes. The pizza was fantastic. The crust was thin, the sauce... More

This place is a real gem! Pizza is thinner crust (not as thin as Zaffiro's) and sauce has great flavor. Lots of topping options. Amazing prices for great food and they are sometimes in the Valpak with a coupon. Service was great, especially reminding people of the new parking meters outside so guests don't get parking tickets!!

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!
