Zaffiro's has been here since 1954, a small bar with dining area. I've come here off and on since the 70's. It has great thin crust pizza and the Zaffiro's antipasto salad is delicious. Four of us shared a half salad-more than enough. Very fresh...More

Zero ambiance. Small space. Service ok. Price super reasonable. But the best pizza in Milwaukee. Ate there once a wk for 2.5 years when I lived downtown. Wine is no name and served out of carafe. But as a wine snob, it's really good. Takeout...More
