“Delicious, depending what you order!”
Reviewed 18 February 2014

This is one of my favorite all time lasagnas, and their Italian nachos are a unique experience I can't even describe (so tasty!) However, I am very much less impressed by their pizza. It is average and nothing I would ever order myself, however, I have eaten it at work when chosen by others.

“Wonderful Service...Average Food”
Reviewed 27 January 2014

My husband and I just ate here while in Milwaukee on our honeymoon... The menu was a little odd for us as a couple- probably better in large groups...We thought we'd have a pizza (easy enough)...But there was no "side salad"- I didn't mind the price...I just didn't want a salad the size of my pizza...Anyway....The server was very pleasant....She was very upfront about the fact that our bread would be delayed, made helpful suggestions,etc.

Neither of us were crazy about the pizza crust- I wasn't overwhelmed by my salad...It wasn't bad food- but I feel like these are two easy plates for an Italian restaurant to make sure they have down... and we've had better. That's all.

“good food, great service”
Reviewed 26 August 2013

My husband and I happened upon this restaurant while walking around Milwaukee.
It doesn't look like much from the outside, but it was a great place for lunch.
My husband had an individual thin crust pizza which was excellent. I had a "Joey's special salad" which was equally as good. They seemed to be short on servers, but the manager stepped in and helped. So, our wait time was minimal for service. The food came quickly and the prices were decent. I would definitely stop here again.

Delicious pizza. Lots of cheese. Excellent deep fried breadsticks. Husband walked to pick it up. Still piping hot when he got to the hotel.
