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

Very warm setting, loved the fresh caprese salad and cream of mushroom soup. Will definitely dine here again when back in Milwaukee

I took my teenagers here years ago for birthday celebrations when the restaurant had just opened. It was so memorable. Not having been in too many 'nice' restaurants, they were wide-eyed. Last month (and years later) my now adult son took me here for MY birthday. It was not only nostalgic but a memory making dinner all of these years... More

Had a business dinner here last week. I am not a fan of tables that are crammed together--I felt like we were at dinner with the table next to us. Even walking to the tables was a feat. The food was OK--just OK. I had a chicken ravioli special that had a decent flavor but wasn't heated all the way... More

The experience at Zarletti was a real mixed bag. In November they have 1/2 price on Barbarescos and Barolos. This is an incredible treat and means that you are drinking the wine at close to the price you would pay in a store. We had two very nice Barbarescos. The food was OK to bad, however. The Caesar Salad was... More

Excellent dinner. Great service, good food. Big wine list. I recommend getting a reservation as it was busy.

Authentic Italian food, attentive servers, wonderful (and fairly-priced) wine selection, melt-in-your-mouth food and romantic ambiance! This was by far one of the best meals my husband and I have ever had and this restaurant is highly recommended!

Corner restaurant in a vibrant area of downtown. It has that real Italian feel, like you are in Little Italy. Excellent server. I had the scallops and pasta with diced mushrooms. Plenty of wine on the menu and both Moretti and Peroni beer. Tight quarters when they are busy, which is most every night I am sure. I suggest making... More

We were in Milwaukee for a wedding and decided to try Zarletti based on reviews on this site. Zarletti is a small, downtown Italian restaurant. Seating is very cozy (i.e. tables close together). Servers were pleasant and outgoing. Good selection of Italian wines at reasonable prices. Three of us shared Bruschetta and a special beef appetizer. Both were very good.... More
