We've been here a few times. They have a creative selection of topping combinations. I have never been disappointed. The slices are enormous. Thankfully they are fairly thin crust. It seems like a cheese slice or meat slice is probably a solid 1000 calories plus. But it's delicious. They have very friendly staff as well. Very happy it's around.

Artisan-style pizza by the enormous slice. They had both classic flavors and inventive specialty slices as well. I had the "Meatallica" and it was loaded with meat. Unique sodas on tap with free refills was a plus. Ultimately the pizza was greasy but good - which isn't for everyone but it sure is delicious!

The pizza here is really great. One slice will fill your plate, so it's more of a knife and fork pizza than I'm used to, but it's just so good! Nice amount of options, great service, and definitely hip enough for Bayview; this is the place to come for your pizza fix.

I go out of my way to eat this pizza anytime I'm in the Milwaukee area. The outside and neighborhood is a little suspicious, so don't judge the book by its cover.

Classic Slice is a no frills place with great pizza.. One slice is almost a meal, great for lunch. Lots of other items on the menu board. There's a parking lot across the street and the staff was very pleasant. Hand made pizza at its best.

Even though the music is "stupid", the pizza's are good as heck. If you want your favorite pizza flavor or regional soda, this place is for local-people. But be careful, something dangerous may happen.

I've had the pizza a number of times and it's always been great but today I decided to give the Mac N Cheese balls a try. Picture mac n cheese breaded and deep fried and you get the idea. Not health but who cares! Delicious

Classic slice is my go-to pizza order when I want something other than thin crust Milwaukee-style or plain old hand tossed pizza. It's a thin, chewy crust with interesting toppings, and comes as a humongous slice.

I thought this place had amazing pizza! Everything was good from the bread sticks, pizza and homemade cookies! Careful when you order, the single slices are HUGE!

New York-style pizza served in a neighborhood pizzeria...my family loved this place. We had a large Shippee Ahoy. It was some of the best pizza we have ever tasted. To wash it down, we had Dang Butterscotch Root Beer...amazing stuff. We cannot wait to return to this restaurant to try some of the other types of pizza...and the root beer.

Thank Bill K
