Trouble and Sons Pizzeria Opens Tuesday, Oct. 16

The Whitefish Bay sister restaurant to Moxie focuses on pizzas and offers a full bar featuring cocktails, beer and Italian wines.

Trouble is coming this week to Whitefish Bay.  That would be Trouble and Sons (133 E. Silver Spring Dr.), the new pizzeria from the owners of  nearby Moxie (501 E.Silver Spring Dr.). Owners Anne Marie Arroyo and Tamela Greene  will soft-open their pizza place – with a rustic Italian theme and a “slightly funky decor,” as they describe it.

I haven’t seen a full menu yet but they have been working on their pizza game so expect plenty of pies, along with appetizers, soups and salads. In the future, the couple plans to add pastas and appetizers. Moxie, which opened in late 2016, has a rustic Italian element of its own, including cioppino, shrimp-scallop scampi and short rib Bolognese rigatoni, among many other menu items. 

The beverage program at Trouble and Sons will not be lacking either. Craft cocktails, beer and Italian wines will be plentiful.

A grand opening celebration will be held on Sunday, Oct. 21.

Hours: Dinner, Tuesday-Sunday 4-10 p.m. For reservations, call 414-800-5015 or go to
