A Good Dinner

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

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!
