Being born and raised in Wauwatosa, this was always a favorite of mine. I return to Milwaukee at least twice a year to visit family, and a trip to Balistreri's is always on the list of "Must Dos". They offer a terrific thin crust option,...More

Come on people......it is 2018!!! Fake crust canned mushrooms nasty cheese. Seriously wondering how they have been able to survive.....there are better frozen pizza options in the Walmart freezers (I think) but then I guess a lot of people never had good pizza. Trust me...More

I've been going here for Pizza for years. Great crust, fresh ingredients, and always tasty. I would not recommend the pasta dishes necessarily, but the appetizers and the pizza are very good and people flock here for primarily pizza.

We have been coming to this place forever. The food is always good. We just stopped the other day and were a little disappointed. We think they may have changed cooks and they have a spice that is not that great. We will try again...More

This is unlike any other pizza I've ever had. Very thin crust and very crispy. I really liked it. We have the cheese pizza and a Caesar salad and enjoyed both. Neighborhood place.
