Papa Luigi’s 2 in South Milwaukee makes great food fun.
Papa Luigi’s Pizza made a very good impression on us.
My wife does not care too much for eating out. Usually, we eat at restaurants only when she’s had a hard day and doesn’t feel up to cooking. Otherwise, she would rather eat her own cooking (she is an amazing cook). It’s not often when she will tell me at a restaurant that she would like to come back some day. Sometimes she will say the food is pretty good, which is a very rare complement from her. While I really like pizza, she usually just tolerates it. I was really surprised when she asked me if we could go back come back to Papa Luigi’s in South Milwaukee just after we had their pizza.
We had a great pizza on a Friday at Papa Luigi’s.
We then went back for a non-pizza dinner the following Tuesday (which happened to be a Valentine’s Day that year). Both times, my wife enjoyed her meal as much as I did. Papa Luigi’s has been added to our very short list of favorite places to eat when we decide on no cooking.
Papa Luigi’s is an interesting pizza place.
I’ve seen my share of “different” pizza places. In Milwaukee, there pipe organ pizza places. We’ve all seen the pizza with the creepy animatronic mouse. I’ve even been to a pizza place in Chicago that seemed to have every square inch covered in graffiti.
Papa Luigi’s II is the first pizza place I’ve seen with it’s own basketball court. It also has a bowling alley and an arcade. Instead of a creepy animatronic mouse, Papa Luigi’s Pizza has a big stuffed polar bear (it’s huge too). Then there is the guy in the white suit (I’m guessing that is Papa Luigi). I’ve driven past and seen the Papa Luigi’s sign enough to know that there is always something going on there. I’ve seen wedding announcements, comic book toy sales, and I think wrestling on the sign. There was a dart club meeting when we were there.
It is a casual place to eat.
You won’t feel out of place in a nice T-shirt and jeans. There are a couple of flat screen TV’s in the dinning room with sports on (first time my wife saw Jeremy Lin). There is also a screen over the fireplace next to the polar bear where there is a nice couch for those waiting to be seated. None of the TV’s were loud and unlike some places, it was easy to talk quietly to each other. Even with the bowling alley in the next room. It’s casual, and fun where you can take the kids, but still nice enough for a night out with your better half.
Is it the best pizza in South Milwaukee, Wisconsin?
Maybe, but there is a lot to choose from in the area. My wife loved the pizza. They had a special dinner on Valentine’s Day that consisted of a juicy steak, skewered shrimp, vegetables, and the most amazing mashed potatoes I’ve ever tasted. It’s a shame it’s not on the normal menu. However, they do specialize in pizza, and Italian dinners. It might not be fair to everyone else if they take over the steak dinner business too.
Service was the best I have ever witnessed at a restaurant.
It’s nice when your soda is refilled by your waitress. This was the first time I’ve had a waitress from another table stop by and refill before our own waitress had a chance. Everyone was extremely friendly and helpful. When we were going to order a 12″ pizza our waitress pointed out a 14″ was just a dollar more and you get garlic bread too. We went with the 14″ pizza and enjoyed it.

The food is exceptional. The service is great. They have a great thing going on there. No matter if you are taking the kids out or it’s a date night, it’s a great place to eat out. They also do carry out and delivery too.
