Zaffiro's is a small, hole-in-a-wall saloon which happens to make my favorite thin crust pizza. There's something special about this pizza; the way the crust, sauce and cheese come together make a harmonious base for their extensive list of toppings. If you're looking for atmosphere, go elsewhere for a typical pizza; if you're looking for a Milwaukee roughed-up gem with superior pizza and great, friendly service, head for Zaffiro's.

The interior is creepy. The pizza was fine but the restrooms are two closets with the sink outside by the bar, and the toilet wouldn't flush. If you like to hang out in your great uncle's paneled basement bar that hasn't been cleaned in years, by all means, go. But my Auntie L says the kitchen is as clean as the bathroom and I'll go with that.

Most Milwaukee natives will tell you this is the spot for pizza. I think it is very good thin crust pizza. I do consider it pricy for what one gets. The remainder of the menu is average, it is the pizza that most talk about. In business since 1954, they must be doing something right. The restaurant is in a crowded building and has zero ambiance. Just a bar and a dining section out of Happy Days. Worth a try if you are in amilwaukee and looking for a local hot spot for excellent pizza.

I actually cut the roof of my mouth on the crust. Wells Brother's in Racine has got this place put to shame.
