Enjoy an amazing dining experience at Zaffiro’s Pizzeria. Zaffiro’s is famous for Thin credible pizza – a crispy, thin-crust topped with sliced (never grated) cheese, ladled with zesty sauce then layered with the freshest traditional toppings then baked to perfection.

Zaffiro’s Pizzeria is a comfortable and enjoyable spot for a night out with friends and family, a date with that someone special or for a quick lunch during your workday. Conveniently located at the Marcus North Shore Cinema, Zaffiro’s Pizzeria is a complete restaurant experience you can enjoy on its own, or as part of attending a movie.

We are frequent guests there. It’s the first time it wasn’t up to par. Their wonderful kitchen sink salad was a mess and the cheese, sausage, mushrooms and onion pizza was dry. No flavor and hardly any mushrooms or onions. My husband had a burger which he said was delicious. Hopefully this was a off night because we enjoy this restaurant.

Food took forever to come. Waiter brought 3 of the 4 drinks ordered and then never returned with the 4th until being asked. No apologies. They ran out of beer glasses so the 4th beer was delivered in a plastic cup. It took over 90 minutes for our food to come.

I have been to Zaffiro's in Mequon a number of times. The remodeled restaurant is definitely a very positive change. What has not changed is the delicious crispy thin crust pizza and the many other fine offerings that make a delicious list of choices I will return for lunch or dinner and highly recommend you do the same.

I love movies so I frequently go to Zaffiro's to enjoy pizza after the movie at North Shore Cinema in Mequon.

I LOVE the thin crust pizza. The service is always good and the atmosphere at Zaffiro's is relaxing.

I would definitely recommend this restaurant to a friend.

We had a great pizza. There crust is cracker thin and very good. Just the right thickness to hold the toppings , but not to thick to overwhelm the toppings. All of the toppings, sausage, onions, mushrooms, green peppers, yellow peppers and olives were nice and fresh. The amount of sauce, and the taste, was just right. Cheese was very good and just the right amount to compliment the rest of the toppings. Service was prompt and pleasant. A good value for the price.

Zaffiro's pizza is a great restaurant before or after a Marcus Northshore movies in Mequon -- or anytime you
want great pizza. Enjoyed tasty pizza and a big salad with 5 friends. Good, friendly service. TV's to watch sports. I have been going to Zaffiros on Farwell Ave. on Milwaukee's Eastside for 58 yrs. And have been enjoying the second location for several years too.
Mequon location has some outdoor tables-- in good weather.

Love the fact that the restaurant is located in such a way that you can either a) eat your food before or after the movie or b) bring it in to the theater. The food is solid Italian fare and there is a good selection of alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages. Our server was Jacob and he was great!

The food was good, we just ordered burgers, each of us. However from the time we sat down, and waited about 10 minutes (the waiter did say he would be right with us, but 10 minutes for a drink order is too long) then ordered our drinks, then by the time we ordered our food about 20 minutes after we got there, it took about 40 minutes to get our food. The restaurant was a crowded but wasn't like crazy crowded. Luckily we gave ourselves over enough time so we would catch our movie in time. But we gave ourselves an hour and a half and sat down to our movie 15 minutes before the start. So I would recommend for the food, but not for the service, and would say get there way ahead of time if looking to go to a movie. The hostess wrote our movie time on a ticket but the waiter never even looked at it.

We go here usually before/after seeing a movie.
The best thing we have and get most of the time is the "Kitchen Sink Salad" and "EBF" pizza.
They are very accommodating when you ask to have items taken off the pizza, or only want items on 1/2 the pizza.

We went with another couple and had a relaxing, delicious dinner. Our server was Rachel and she was very attentive and our food came exactly as we ordered it, she met our every need. Zaffiro's new look is great. It's close to our home, so we frequent Zaffiro's often. I highly recommend this restaurant.

Everything was great. Our host sat us right away. Our server Jacob was very attentive and helpful with questions we had, even tho he was new. Well he seemed like a seasoned server to us.
Not sure if you can request a server when dining at Zaffiro but if we can we will ask for Jacob
The food is always good here, and on this day it was no exception. We will come back the next time we see a movie.

The remodel has made this restaurant a lot warmer and more inviting. Unfortunately the tables are really crammed together though. The service is better and seems to be meeting the demand. Food remains pretty good, with pizzas being the best menu offering of course.

This place could be so much better. The atmosphere is nicer since they remodeled but the food is just so bad. I went with a group of people on New Year’s Day because we were seeing a movie & it was convenient to go there afterwards.

I was sorry I suggested it because nobody liked their food except for my husband and I who got a salad. That is the only half way good thing there and the salads aren’t great either.

I know some people like the cracker crust pizza and none of our group got a regular pizza. Two people got a GF veggie pizza and it was horrible.
Won’t ever go there again unless they do something to upgrade the quality of the food.

They did some remodeling - basically moved the outdoor entrance and closed it up a bit so there is less cold air blowing across restaurant. In the process the added additional tables and it is a bit of a squeeze between tables. The Kitchen sink salad is still wonderful.

Overall service and food was great!! Waiter (Bri) was not interested in ensuring the group (6) was taken care of (e.g. drinks not refilled, no check-in to see if everything was ok, ya know the normal things waitresses do)

Still desipit Bri’s actions, food was great and we made the best of it.

Fries and onion rings were cold. Smash burgers were really good but did not come with bacon as specified on the menu. Forgot about it until after we were finished. The waitress was inattentive and seemed like she really did’t care. Asked for a lemon for my water and she never returned with one, did not return until we were almost finished to see if we needed anything. Really nice busboy who worked really hard brought us lemons and ketchup for the fries. Wish he was the waiter. Had this waitress before and she has a bad attitude, like she’s doing you a favor by waiting on you.

We many times come over to Zaffiro's for a quick kitchen sink salad which we love. The salad was great, the service was superb and we were waited on prompty and our server checked in with us frequently. We would highly recommend Zaffiro's.
