Yes they have fancy food like ossobuco and a great wine list but the service sucked. We were rudely greeted and taken outside to dine when I really wanted to dine indoors. When I asked for a table inside I was told they were booked while I saw many empty tables. For an establishment that wants to be in the... More

I wrote the following letter to the restaurant and wanted to share it with all of you: I wanted to share with you a horrible dining experience that I had earlier today attempting to go to Downtown Dining week at Zarletti.

Lunch was very very good. We all ordered panini sandwiches all different. I had the portobello mushroom with other items, my wife eggplant with goat cheese, and my daughter the prosciutto with cheese. Each was very well done and the taste was very good. The chips that came with the meal were excellent; a lot of crunch and tasty.

Intimate but a bit noisy. Some very creative dishes. Excellent service. Varied wine list. The roasted carrot pasta with Brie was unique and excellent.

I came for dinner on a Thursday evening. I was on my own as I was in Milwaukee for work. I've never been to Zarletti. The service was excellent and my waiter was helpful in selecting wine. My soup, puréed spinach cream soup was absolutely delicious! I had the ravioli special for my entrée. It was very good but not... More

Was in Milwaukee for 3 nights, and I heard from 3 different people that Zarletti was the place to go. They were right. Went with a friend and sat the bar. Brian, the bartender, was the best. Friendly, knowledgeable and a true pro, but fun to hang with. First course soup--mine Minestrone, was superb. Brian suggested that we should have... More

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
