Good food, good price – Not the "traditional" American pizza, this is different but don't confuse "different" with "bad"--it is great. Like the previous review said, not the heavy-sauce type of pizza. Also not greasy either (this is a big plus for me). There are a lot of selections that you won't find elsewhere. Besides pizza, the entrees are very good as well. Atmosphere is nice. Very open, bar area is cool too. I was fortunate enough to live within walking distance of this restaurant for several years and ate here many times, business moved me out of the state. Usually visit when I return to Milwaukee. If you can get your hands on one, there used to be $15 coupons, 2 salads, 2 drinks, one pizza, which is a great deal. But, the prices are really inexpensive to begin with. I always left with leftovers because of the large amounts of bread & oil served before the meal, so it was an even better value. They have a nice selection of beer. Good location.
Not sure what the rave is about... – Not horrible, but I believe the complimentary bread was better than the pizza. I warning should come for anyone who has never visited this place before. The pizza is very different in a good way, however a heads up on the extremely thin-no sauced pizza would have been nice. The waitress we had was somewhat nice, but absent EVERY time we needed something or were ready to order-pay etc. The atmosphere is confusing-sordof traditionl italian..candle lit..but open not private seating concept. I highly recomend driving down the road to pizza man.
Best On The East Side – I have never been so taken care of in my life! The attentive waitstaff did everything right. And the food is the best on the east side. I had the barbeque chicken pizza, and my wife had the shrimp cappellini. Both were to die for!! I will definately be stopping in there soon!
