Transfer Pizzeria Café's saliva-inspiring menu of classic antipasti, salads, pastas, panini, and pizza delights diners with flavors fashioned from fresh ingredients. Transfer's disk-shaped offerings dazzle with 40+ house pies in five lip-smacking categories, including traditional, garlic sauce, and seafood. The La Bella ($11 for a small, $17 for a large) drapes cheese, artichokes, and onions in kissable garlic sauce, and the tomato-based Diavola ($13 for a small, $19 for a large) is tattooed with cheese, a choice of jalapeños or cayenne, salami, and red peppers. Meanwhile, the Gamberetti ($13 for a small, $19 for a large) features artfully arranged shrimp on a doughy canvas, just as the Paisano ($13 for a small, $19 for a large) delights carnivores with a sausage-heavy bevy of asiago and tomato-and-pesto sauce. Transfer's thin, bubbly pizza crusts channel traditional Neapolitan pies and can also be festooned with your choice of 30+ toppings. Honor the eatery's Roman roots by erecting a boozy aqueduct of imported wine or beer in your gullet.
Housed in a former pharmacy—the remnants of which are present in its stained-glass windows—Transfer Pizzeria Café presents a delicious alternative to a standard diet of sheetrock smeared in marzipan.

The “pleasingly puffy” crust and “inventive flavor combinations” created for Transfer Pizzeria Café's inventive pizzas earned the establishment a Best Pizza of 2015 award from On Milwaukee. Today, they craft more than 30 different kinds of pizzas with different combinations of about 30 toppings, all laid atop house-crafted sauces: tomato, garlic, pesto, barbecue, and peanut. The pizzas range from traditional to inventive, and can be made with a gluten-free crust per request with combinations more compelling than that of Al Capone’s safe. The pollo verde features chicken with pesto and tomato sauce, feta, and asiago cheese, and the Diavola is topped with hot peppers and salami. Transfer Pizzeria Café's crew strives to give back to the community by featuring local art and live music, and it contributes its vegetable and fruit scraps, used coffee grounds, and discarded paper airplanes to an area compost network.
