It's time for Dining Month, presented by Deer District and its spooky Halloween-themed alter ego, Fear District. Throughout the month of October, we'll be serving up fun and fascinating content about all things food. The signature dish, however, is our 2019 Best of Dining poll, who's winners we will dish out all month long. Get hungry, Milwaukee!


Local legend Zaffiro's regains the crown after losing it last year to Transfer Pizza. Transfer nabbed third place this year, just after Balistreri's. 

But the crackery-thin Zaffiro's crust with the tangy-and-sweet red sauce came back for the win this year, but by less than 2 percent of the votes. Still, a win is a win! There are three Zaffiro's location, but we recommend the old school sit-down parlor and bar on the East Side to anyone who is yet to experience it.

Meanwhile, OnMilwaukee sided with Transfer for its editors' pick, and food expert Lori Fredrich went with Wy'East for the fourth year in a row. Mangia, Milwaukee!
