Calo Ristorante

Calo Ristorante offers a delicious menu of authentic Italian dishes. You will find steaks that rival the best steak houses in town and plentiful plates of seafood pastas. Handcrafted pan, stuffed, and thin crust pizzas are much loved by the regulars. The restaurant is comfortable and the service is great.


You will find authentic Polish dishes served with old world charm at Smak Tak. Traditionally prepared pierogies, dumplings, soups, a variety of meats and polish sausage are served in a cozy atmosphere. BYOB.

With plates that are meant to be shared, Milwalky Trace aims to be an intimate gathering place for friends and families alike. Their New American fare pairs well with their pre-prohibition era cocktails.
