So not the Pizza Man of yore (the original was destroyed by fire), and yet, so like it. The owners have capitalized on the best parts of the old joint – the thin-crust pizza, staples like wild boar ravioli, and extensive selection of by-the-glass wines.

A Milwaukee tradition since 1923, Alioto’s serves all the classics to make it a great evening out. We recommend heading over on a Friday to sample one of their delicious fish fry options: broiled cod, perch fry and the walleye are just three options to get you started. Reservations are recommended.
Sunny dining room/open kitchen where the bill of fare comes in a bowl. The menu features grain-, vegetable- and smoothie-based bowls. Highlights: chocolate peanut-butter smoothie and Green Goddess barley bowl.
