    This place gets EXTREMELY busy at peak times, the benches outside will all be full of people waiting to be seated. So beware & be prepared for that. But it's because the thin crust pizza's that good!

    The calamari is a major skip! But, like everyone says a simple pizza is great! Order a larger size than you want, left overs in the oven are awesome! :)

    Balestreri's has the best pizza and eggplant! People line up outside the door to get it. There is not another pizza like like it and every time I am back in town I make it a point to stop in!

    I can't decide what's better, the cheesy garlic bread or the pizza. So you have to try both. Never a disappointment. Have been going their for over 30 years.

    Pizza is ok. It's greasy and the sauce is bland. Meatballs were good but again the sauce was rather bland. Parmesan can only compensate so much for bland sauce.

    A true Wauwatosa landmark, known for excellent thin crust style pizza. The garlic bread and spaghetti is very good too.

    Very good chicken parmigiana. Also try the clam chowder instead of salad if that's what they're serving.

    I usually like a lot of toppings on my pizza, but their plain, sausage pizza is the best.

    Best pizza ever! Awesome eggplant, great garlic bread! Watch out for a short, chubby, curly-haired lady server--she's a raging bitch.

    Not in the mood for thin-crust pizza? Try the chicken Parmesan, a signature dish (via @GrabaBiteNOW). Read more

    Great pizza, and huge portions. A medium is an extra large at most other places.
