Excellent food and service

We ordered the Raviolo Quattro Formaggi, Gamberi alla Putanesca con Gamberi, and Brodetto di Pesce. . . We were all very pleased with our choices. The food was amazing. Perfectly cooked and seasoned. Would definitely go back !

The food, atmosphere and service at Zarletti is top notch. Small, stylish, upscale, but not pretentious. Everything from the bread, creamy chicken soup, ravioli, and torta di cioccolata were perfection. Wine list is wonderful and full of Italian wines. If you're not sure what to get, ask your server. Our server, Matt, was not only easy on the eyes but... More

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 .
