Ate dinner here last night. Had great old-fashioned with 2 glasses of very good red wine. GF had white wine she was very pleased with. We started out with the Portabella and red pepper appetizer which was very good. My entree was Osso Bucco and GF had Swiss chard with pasta. We shared a very good rhubarb cobbler with vanilla...

Good service and good food. Worth the price. Large portions. The braised beef ravioli were excellent. Although the restraunt was a little small you didn't feel crowded. Nice selection of appetizers and specials. The food came out the perfect temperature. Our server was very attentive to us.

My wife and I travelled to Milwaukee for the weekend and were walking around downtown Milwaukee when we came to the Zarletti. It looked interesting from the outside so we decided to try it. We had a high top close to the bar and had a wonderful waitress. My wife and I split the veal limone' and it was very... More

While the place has been around for awhile the dishes are both old school and creative . The wine list was good offering a lot of choices for the various pasta dishes. It is a tight fitting place and was a little hot that night but the food made up for it.

Wonderful service, street and sidewalk cityscape. White tablecloths but not stuffy. Enjoyed the pasta dishes and moderate selection from a pricey wine list. Great evening.

Went here with friends after swearing off the place several years ago due to a very bad experience with a hostess who requested we move before our dessert arrived because people were waiting. Found out she was no longer there so was agreeable to going back as the food was good in the day. Happy to say, the food is... More

Zarletti is one of the best Italian restaurants downtown. The interior is beautiful with wooden tables, white linens and large windows. The food is flavorful and freshly made. I started with the olives appetizer, caesar salad (yum!) and cheese stuffed ravioli with a pesto sauce (Ravioli Quattro Formaggi). The pasta was truly delicious. My friend and I had the great...

Went here for a late lunch with family after visiting the Milwaukee Public Museum in the morning. We arrived at 1:30 and the restaurant was mostly empty by that time. The inside dining area is small, but there are seats at the bar and some sidewalk seating as well. The lunch menu has pasta dishes, pannini, salads, soups and sandwiches.... More

Great little restaurant with a great metro feel to it. Same character as the original one that opened in South Milwaukee. A few tables outside if you like outdoor dining.
