Once again the VERY BEST EGG PLANT there is ANYWHERE period. The VERY BEST PIZZA anywhere period. The SERVICE is also the VERY BEST period. If i seem to keep telling you this i am glad. There are too many family restaurants closing over the years and we need to keep them in business FOREVER. And the salad, meat balls... More

My son and I were looking for a pizza in the area. I read some reviews and decided to try out Lisa's. It feels like walking into an old home that was converted, small and cozy. We ordered a pizza and some garlic bread. The service was quick, and the thin crust pizza was very good. Can't wait to try... More

I have been coming here since I have been a kid. It is wonderful and although updated, it has not lost a bit of its charm. Home-made salad dressings, killer eggplant appi and the most wonderful thin crust pizza. Service is charming. Prices are fair. Family run and eveyone is so friendly. They lost their amazing juke box that they... More

We had a group of six for dinner. When we entered the restaurant, we weren't quite sure what to do as not one of the wait staff welcomed us. We patiently waited to be acknowledged. They were extremely busy. Our patience paid off as we were seated within twenty minutes. The pizza was fantastic. The crust was thin, the sauce... More

This place is a real gem! Pizza is thinner crust (not as thin as Zaffiro's) and sauce has great flavor. Lots of topping options. Amazing prices for great food and they are sometimes in the Valpak with a coupon. Service was great, especially reminding people of the new parking meters outside so guests don't get parking tickets!!

I know they have other Italian food, but the Pizza is what we go for. This is a small place above street level that is crowded during peak week-end times. We take-out about half the time. They serve cocktails, Italian food, Pizza and beer. Family friendly. Pizzas can be ordered with just about anything on them.

We waited for Lisa's to open on our recent trip to Milwaukee: 4 pm. An Italian salad to share and the delicious pizza I remember from high school made it worth waiting for! The sauce was enough for my husband who usually orders double sauce, too. The leftovers extended my joy. I will go back any chance I get.
