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.

A friend of ours from out of town was visiting last weekend so we decided to hit up Classic Slice as we've been meaning to try it for a while. We've tried a few pizza places in MKE since we moved here, and haven't found any we loved yet. I'm happy to say that Classic Slice is different, it definitely... More

My husband and I got a slice after a night out on the town and I truly believe it was the best piece of pizza I ever had!!!! Well worth the traveling too if you are staying downtown!

Yum, Yum, Yum. It is New York style thin crust pizza. It is delicious. I got the cheese with the vegan sausage and it was great. I have also gotten other pizzas. The meat pizza is greasy. It is great there and great for leftovers. I wish I lived closer to Classic Slice.

Fast, delicious made to order and some of the best in the Bayview area. We enjoy that we can each order our own made to order slice and one slice is quite generous! A large pie will feed many and for two, you'll have plenty for the next day which is just as good the next either cold or warmed... More

A pretty decent pizza place where you can buy some interesting combinations of pizza by the slice. They have many different types of cheeses and toppings. I also liked the fact that they have locally made soft drinks. I very tired of the usual coke or pepsi. They also have gluten free pizza. Again I really liked their slices. This... More

I am from New York and have a confession, I like Chicago style pizza better. But, this is quite good thin crust pizza. I had the "escape from New York" and would highly recommend it. Reasonable prices and generous portions.
