About the restaurant
You are cordially invited to visit Transfer Pizzeria Café, located in the Harbor District on the corner of 1st and Mitchell Streets. Established in 2008, the namesake is Transfer Pharmacy, a classic cornerstone drugstore from a bygone era that for decades supplied a thriving community with goods and services as evidenced by the stained glass windows still in place. The pharmacy was appropriately named for the constant activity that took place just outside - the boarding, departures, and transfers of the countless daily commuters of the time. The tradition of a reliable cornerstone establishment continues today, as Transfer Pizzeria delivers a unique dose of delicious pizza, drink, atmosphere, and friendly service.

We keep an active wait-list and gladly accommodate walk-ins as part of both our lunch and dinner service.

Our meal at Transfer Pizza was excellent. We had their Caesar salad and the Vegetarian pizza. Both were perfect! Our waiter was helpful and responsive. We love the ambiance of the place…a former pharmacy with all charm that takes you back to that time. Quaint and charming! Finally, the quality/value index is exceptionally high. Go for it!

Fantastic restaurant. Our waitress was wonderful , very knowledgeable and helpful with the menu. The decor and ambience are great. Above all, the food is amazing. We were a party of 4 and all ordered different items, and they were each delicious. This was our first time dining at Zarletti but will definitely be back.

The beet salad was excellent and enough for two. The scallops and the chicken entrees were also very good. I wish they didn't have wrestling on the TV.

About the restaurant
It’s been over four years since guests last tasted the Sicilian dishes from longtime Milwaukee restaurant Giovanni’s. But all of that changes with Safina: a new casual Italian concept that comes to the historic building at 785 N. Jefferson St.

Focusing on comforting dishes with roots in Sicily and the southern regions of Italy, Safina's goal is to keep the menu familiar and accessible. The restaurant also features a full bar and second-level seating, complete with wood and marble finishes that highlight the rustic, modern Italian ambiance.
