Amazingly thin - real Italian sausage and stretchy mozzarella. You can't find a thin crust like this with all the toppings. We travel 600 miles three or four times a year to have their pizza. It's incredible.... (more)

This pizza is the best in Milwaukee. Seating is a little crowded at times. I would try to go at a less busy time. But the food is top notch. Service is exceptional also. (more)

I have been hearing about how great Balistreri's pizza is for years. I went there a couple of weeks ago and received great service on a busy night. The eggplant appetizer was outstanding. The pizza was good, but not the... (more)
