Third Ward Caffe - CLOSED
You could almost say the Third Ward Caffe got it's start in 1946 when Grandma DeBattista began cooking in the Old Third Ward at the first restaurant in Milwaukee to serve pizza. In 1982, Randy and Jane Nelson opened the Third Ward Caffe in a 1875 produce warehouse on Milwaukee's historic "commission row." In the early years Grandma still came in to help in the kitchen and pass on recipes from her native Bergamo in northern Italy. Today the menu features veal, beef, chicken, pizza and over 20 pastas complimented by seasonal specials which take advantage of the herbs and vegetables grown on their 20 acre Door County farm. This authentic menu is enhanced by over 100 specially selected Italian wines.
