Only been here a lunchtime and the pizza is wonderful! The cafe was a drug store at one time and still has some of the stained glass windows from the drug store. The windows tables are my favorite spot. It has hardwood floors and brick walls which makes the place inviting. Service is great too.

I googled best pizza and tripadvisor came up stating that this was one of them. We tired it out cause it was going towards the airport and it was awesome. My husband enjoyed the pizza here better than in Chicago. I thought the had great food. Our waitress Ashlee was very nice and helpful.

Ordered pizza, pasta and salami bruschetta. All were superb. Had specials on some higher end bottled beer which made some people in our party very happy. All food was excellent. Like openness of space.

Finding a place to park was a bit of a challenge but worth the effort because the service and food at Transfer Pizzeria Cafe is excellent. Our group of six was quickly seated and drinks order taken. Then we had to choose from so many tempting pizzas and we decided to order three smalls to share. We chose Garlic Lovers,... More

We love to eat at Transfer. The Paisano for $13 Tomato sauce & pesto sauce, cheese with spicy sausage, topped with fresh tomatoes & shaved asiago. All the pizzas are good. If you have not eaten t Transfer, you must try. You will not be disappointed.

Nice, bright atmosphere and interesting building/business history. Very busy, popular place. We sat by the big windows facing1st Street. Great service, friendly waitstaff. Had a Caprese Sandwich with vegan cheese which was excellent! Pizzas are wonderful too. Love the cocktail list. I rated this restaurant as "Very Good," but will be happy to bump that up to an "Excellent" if... More
