“Great Pizza”
Reviewed November 30, 2012

Interesting location, name fits it. Pizza is my favorite food there as is my 9 year old granddaughters. We have followed them from their first location in Cudahy then downtown and now.
Gives you that warm friendly feeling in staff and food.

“Awesome Pizza”
Reviewed November 29, 2012

Staple place to visit daily, weekly or when ever you have a craving for pizza. Great place, great portion size at lunch time. Pizza is great every time we go. They even have a wonderful gluten free crust (slight up charge- worth it).

“It's all in the crust which is AMAZING (ok, the toppings are great too)”
Reviewed November 21, 2012

The pull, chew factor of the crust is simply unlike any other place - it has a perfect thickness and crispness without being cracker crust thin! The toppings are amazing as are the fresh ribbons of cheese depending on your choice of many wonderful toppings on the pies. My husband loves the basted egg options while I love the traditional toppings - with smaller sizes, there is something for everyone!

“Really Disappointed!”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

Read lots of reviews that this was it...the real deal in pizza. But boy does it miss the mark. I was in Milwaukee from San Francisco and wanted to try it with my family. Here's the deal...when you walk in, it doesn't smell like pizza. Duh...should have been our first clue. Hostess a bit of an attitude that we were a party of five and if we wanted to rush it could have the round table. If not would have to wait. We waited no problem. Got a funky table, but doable. Ordered the pizza with sausage and another margherita. The sausage pizza was undercooked and had to send back. They threw it back in the oven but as we all know that really doesn't work with pizza. Margherita was ok. Nothing to rave about. Guess what...next night we went out for pizza at Zaffiros off of Brady Street....now that is pizza.

Would not return nor would I recommend. What I did like is the old historic building.

“Great service and gluten free options”
Reviewed November 4, 2012

Tasty pizza and gluten free options. All pizzas can be served GF. Tuesdays offer $2.00 wines at happy hour. Highly recommend the house red.

Local art on the walls.

Great servers who were happy to serve and help.
