Pros: A staple in the city, very high quality

Cons: Building is a total loss

Their crust is thin and crisp yet substantial enough to handle a good amount of topping. Good use of cheese. The only thing that would make it better would be if they had the pepperoni that they use at Anns.

I always have delivery it

Well let's say that I was really excited to stay in and order a pizza and a pasta dish. The Pizza was tasty and the Pasta was just "OK". I have never had Spaghetti & Meatballs that were mediocre as this dish was but at the same time I did

I love Pizza Man Pizza!! It's a little pricey, but it's so yummy. You can't go wrong with any of their pizzas. My favorite is the chicken with artichokes and cream cheese (I know it sounds weird, but it's soooo good!).

I totally love this place. Pizza is great, wine list is awesome. When a restaurant is nearly always packed, there is little need to question whether it's good or not... This place rocks!

I'm not a native Milwaukeen. I'm staying downtown at the Hyatt Hotel. I read how great Pizza Man pizza is, so I ordered a pie delivered to my room on a Wednesday night. HUGE MISTAKE! The hotel is 8 minutes from the restaurant. (I checked

Pros: haven't seen any yet

Cons: incredibly lame service

Pizza is great, but prices are high... We usually carry out, but the restaurant is very nice. Parking can be a challenge when getting food to go, but it is worth it.

As enthusiasts of fine wine and good food, my significant other and I ate there for three years, once a week (or more). That means over one hundred and fifty times. Obviously it is a favorite, but having traveled extensively and enjoyed

Pros: Wine list, staff, ambience, value

Cons: You'll wait on weekends, but that's the perfect time to have a bottle of wine. Parking is on-street in a popular area... be prepared to walk.

Well, I no longer reside in the Milwaukee area; I do go back to visit at least once a year. I never, ever miss a stop at Pizza Man! I am a vegetarian who tends to eat vegan the majority of the time so I only wish there were more entrees

this restaurant exemplifies Milwaukee's hoaky, clueless perception of what dinning should be. i can't deny its has an uniquely rustic, cozy, romatic feel to its dinning room but that's where the 'pros' list ends. the menu is a joke. it

Best Wine Selection you'll fine anywhere and great staff.

You'll quickly understand why your paying a little bit more than at Balistreri's.

Don't forget to try the ribs and the escargot!

I have had a lot of pizza over the years- but Pizza Man takes Top Place! The crust is so delicious, no one could complain about eating it! The toppings are so fresh and bright in color. The pizzas never look "old"; even 2 days later its

The veggie saute is flawless; the chicken primavera also. Wonderful private, high-backed booths. Good service. Open late on weekends. Best wine selection in town.

Pizza Man is a great place - and the pizza itself is only one of the reasons. I've been going there regularly for over 15 years. They have a great wine list. The wild boar ravioli is to die for. I highly recommend the "split decision"

The atmosphere is great in this rustic restaurant.
The pizza is probably the best I have ever had. Their extensive wine list, and knowledgeable staff make this an excellent place for a date or for dinner with friends/family.

Man, this is the best pizza I've had outside Chicago. They key here is their great wine selection. The servers are also pretty knowledgeable about the wine list, which can be overwhelming. They will happily narrow down the selections

While in college, I lived on the east side of Milwaukee, close to Pizza Man, for nearly five years. My roommates and I swore by this pizza (when we could afford it) its thin and crispy crust is the best youll find in town. The ambiance
