We were very excited to go here on a recommendation from someone who works at Whole Foods - pre-race carb loading dinner. Restauarnt itself is very charming and we loved the atmosphere. We had a reservation and were seated right away. We were surprised how slow it was for a Friday night with a triathlon in town. We were told... More

We had dinner outside on the patio and was very nice. It started raining so we could hear the drops hitting the canvas overhead, very soothing with the meal. Our server Samantha was bubbly and informative in helping us pick out meals. Great personality she has. The meals were very good but the cost is a little on the high... More

Many of the reviews on this place are spot on. I have dined here 4 times in the last year and my most recent visit was disappointing. The waiter, Robert is very nice to regular patrons, but super rude to others, including those with coupons. They are always understaffed; keeping patrons waiting for an excessive amount of time. If you... More

My fiance aren't exactly rich, so anytime a Groupon or Living Social Deal would come up for Pasta Tree, we would get it. The food itself is delicious but very expensive so we had to take advantage of deals when they arose. However, the attitude of the waitstaff would completely change as soon as we brought out the printed deal.... More

Visited here on Valentines Day 2014. The parking here was an experience and the restaurant is very cramped and dimly lit. Once you get past that everything else was great. I had half a lobster tail in pasta with white sauce and it was amazing. My fiancé had pasta as well but her dish was a little bland on flavor.... More

From the antipasto to the desert, this meal was a true Italian treat. The service was spot on, the food wonderful, and the ambiance perfect for a romantic dinner for two - and they even take reservations. A must see for locals as well as travelers.

This was the 2nd time to Pasta Tree and both trips were outstanding. My Caesar salad was the best I have ever had. I love the Gorgonzola pasta with blue cheese. I've never tasted a pasta dish like that before. My wife love the vodka sauce and also the sun dried tomato & artichoke pasta. We also liked the calamari... More

Expensive for what you get. - Should list themselves as 3 1/2 dollar signs on the PR gab. the - Shrimp Broccoli Cream $19 - Plump fresh shrimp served in an herbed Alfredo sauce with steamed broccoli, only included 5 large, far from jumbo shrimp. Would the 6th shrimp have bankrupted them? And no small salad. No wounder people flock... More

One of my favorite restaurants in Milwaukee, a great place for a date night. It's definitely my favorite carbonara in the city, I like most pasta dishes offered and secretly hope they can add cacio e pepe to the menu. The service is always friendly and attentive, and I always feel welcomed back. Highly recommend.
