About the restaurant
You are cordially invited to visit Transfer Pizzeria Café, located in the Harbor District on the corner of 1st and Mitchell Streets. Established in 2008, the namesake is Transfer Pharmacy, a classic cornerstone drugstore from a bygone era that for decades supplied a thriving community with goods and services as evidenced by the stained glass windows still in place. The pharmacy was appropriately named for the constant activity that took place just outside - the boarding, departures, and transfers of the countless daily commuters of the time. The tradition of a reliable cornerstone establishment continues today, as Transfer Pizzeria delivers a unique dose of delicious pizza, drink, atmosphere, and friendly service.

We keep an active wait-list and gladly accommodate walk-ins as part of both our lunch and dinner service.

As usual the salami bruschetta was delicious. The order is large. Could make a meal on it. Love the pizza crust and all the ingredient…. Except the Italian sausage. It tastes like it’s missing the fennel. A bit bland. Our server was excellent. Made for a very nice evening.

This is our return to this favorite spot since a couple of years ago. The food and service did not disappoint, which is why it makes us come back over and over again. However, the hostess left much to be desired. We made a reservation way in advance to be seated in a decent table and we ended out in a bar table, when there were other places available for us. We asked to be changed twice but were denied each time. If we want a bar table, we better sit at the bar. We asked to be accommodated in a nearby empty table but were told that were already taken by another reservation, but it remained empty for over an hour. There is a reason why we don't like bar table, we're an old couple, they are very uncomfortable, too high and small.

The buffet was well stocked and refreshed often. Desserts were only okay, was expecting strawberry shortcake or scham tort. Service was attentive but could have been friendlier. Overall we had a nice mother's day celebration.
