Balistreri's Italian American Ristorante

Known For

Italian

Of the two Balistreri's, the Wauwatosa location has the longest history, having opened in 1968. Plus, it's got an Italian-American red sauce-joint menu and does a lot of great pizza. But Balistreri's Bluemound Inn ups the ante with dishes like melon carpaccio and braised rabbit... try them both, but we think the large pergola-covered patio gives the edge to Bluemound Inn.
