I was born and raised on the south side of Milwaukee in the 1950's and 60's. The first and the best pizza that I've ever ate came from the Club Caradero in the old brick building down on Erie Street. The pizza here at Calderone is the same pizza. When I opened your menu and I read the introduction about... More

Super fast service, friendly employees, first rate food, great atmosphere. A must visit place! Frank and Carmello offer the warmth not felt at most restaurants. Mom's deserts are off the chain!

I took my fiance to the Calderone Club. We had driven past it multiple times and commented on trying it but never making the effort. It is in an unassuming little business strip. The atmosphere inside is completely different than the outward appearance. Overall, the food there is better than expected and has a wide variety of both offerings and... More

We had just driven into town from Ohio and selected the restaurant because of the reviews on Tripadvisor. The restaurant had just opened for the evening and within 30 minutes it was nearly full. The eggplant appetizer was a delicious surprise, the Calderon Special pizza was terrific and the Veal Parmesan uses Strauss veal which is the best around. Save... More

I have been to the downtown Calderone many times over the past 35 years, but this was my first visit to their northside location, which did not disappoint! The tasty Milwaukee pizza (thin crust, light sauce, lots of cheese of course) is just as good as downtown, as is the garlic bread and shrimp fettucine alfredo. Parking is easier than... More

One of our favorite local restaurants. Every meal has been very good. Carmello (co owner) and his team deliver on a consistent level of food and service level. Great gravy / red marinara sauce. Ample portion sizes. Wonderful warm bread and olive oil for appetizer. Zucchini is marvelous. Chicken parmigiana is my personal favorite. Good veal, pasta, and pizza. Booths... More

Okay, so this isn't my favorite Italian food downtown (Louise's and Pasta Tree are both higher on my list), but this location is very convenient to downtown activities like the theater. Come here for a pre-show dinner and you won't be disappointed! I don't come here often but I'm always pleasantly reminded of how much I like this place when... More

I ordered from this place a few times and ordered and PAID for xtra toppings and they took the money and do not give the toppings ordered. There are to many pizza places to go back there.
