This Racine, Wisconsin eatery has been in business since 1921. There is a good reason they have lasted so long, they have great pizza and good service. I went there with a group of Foodie people. They know where all the best places are. We all shared a very good anti-pasta salad and we had four different pizza. They make... More

I order pizza from Wells quite often and it never disappoints. Love the super thin crust and the sauce is outstanding. We usually opt for take out and our food is always ready when promised. The staff is always super friendly as well. Not located in the best neighborhood, but I've never had a problem. Seating area is kind of... More

Different good, before anyone assumes anything. It is a different kind of pizza place. It has more of a homely, restaurant feel where there may be family sitting at other tables, heck family behind the counter and serving you too. The service was very good and pizza etc excellent too. It is a little bit expensive, but worth it. A... More

This is a restaurant tucked into an old neighborhood in Racine that takes you back in time. We both loved the warm & inviting interior decorated for Christmas and full of lively conversations from all the regulars that know they've got a gem in there midst. There pizza is very good, we also enjoyed the eggplant parmigiana. The whole feel... More

We went to Wells based on Trip advisor reviews and were not disappointed. We were in fact pleasantly surprised. Racine is a small town with a big little restaurant in it. This is a home grown, family run gem. We loved the pizza that was one of the best thin crust pizza's this side of Italy. It is a genuine,... More

Best pizza in town, and the rest of the menu is excellent as well. This place hasn't changed in decades, and that's what makes it perfect. It's very popular so it's best to make reservations.

We hadn't been here in a couple years and we're looking forward to stopping in since we were in the area. The pizza is still fantastic and the service was great too. This place is very small so call ahead for reservations or expect to wait. Super thin crust and great toppings. Outstanding pizza

This place is seriously amazing. omg. Not a great neighborhood, but the pizza is wonderful. It's very thin and cut into a grid. It's very easy to eat way too much pizza here which we all did. I'll recommend the shellfish pizza. The dessert was also so good. Caramel lasagna is like the greatest thing ever.

The atmosphere inside the restaurant is very upbeat and friendly. We waited in the bar for our pizza for a take out had enough time for one soda and it was done. Fast service. Next time we would like to dine in. The pizza was hands down the best we've had. Will definitely visit again!

Ok, everyone has their own criteria for what makes a great pizza. If you insist on deep dish, pan-style pizza, I'm afraid you may be disappointed. However, if you are like me, and LOVE thin crust pizza, you will not find any better than Wells' Brothers! It's a Racine institution! The cracker thin crust is JUST crispy enough to avoid... More
