We love this place!

We go here regularly, everything is wonderful... Food, service, environment. I brought my work colleagues here, they were amazed. Whether for a date, work, just a night out, you won't be disappointed.

Lunch visit on a busy weekend of Valentines. Service was fantastic! We enjoyed the 2 specials for lunch, ravioli and shrimp linguini. I don't enjoy standard big meal Italian food. This was enjoyably the opposite. Plenty of detail, flavor, impeccable texture, just enough to feel wonderful after eating. Desert was over the top exciting. I look forward to a dinner... More

The atmosphere is like a Italian Bistro. The service is top notch. The food is delicious and authentic. Duck rague, Pasta bolognese, Crostine Misti. Plenty of vegatarian choices too. Great place to entertain clients or a special dinner for two. Only limitation is the wine list which appears to be limited to Italian wines.

We were invited to dinner here with another couple. The service was very good as well as the food. The squash ravioli and bolognese were delicious. Valet parking is a nice perk.

We like Zarletti a lot, especially the soup! Always go for the soup, it's made with love. I tried carrot soup earlier this week for the first time, I wished I had a big bowl of it! The pasta specials are always delicious!

The food was okay but pricey for the taste. I was hoping it would have been better but hard to get real Italian food in America.

My family had a very enjoyable dinner on Monday night. Everyone loved the food, and we tried all three specials plus lamb and salmon. Very well prepared with a lot of creativity. Wild boar ragout! Interesting cocktails, luscious homemade desserts - get the tiramisu. Service was excellent and the atmosphere was refined but not stuffy. A bit pricey but worth... More

A great Italian restaurant with a great selection of appetizers, salads & entree's. It has a small bar that you can enjoy a cocktail at before or after dinner, valet parking makes it nice in the WI winter months .

the food was good, and the wine list was nice. I wish they offered more options for entrees, but I was very happy with my choice. My colleague was okay with his choice as well. The service was very good and the décor and ambiance was very chic. I'd recommend for a nice dinner out. This is probably great for... More

We combined lunch at Zarletti's with a business meeting on this particular visit. The restaurant was busy as usual and the service was very good as always. My choices for lunch have always been one of the pasta specials or a salad until this visit. Instead, I ordered the Bistecca ai Ferri which is in the entree section of the... More
