Servers and staff have what they need to be great but they only made it to good. Ordered a Manhattan - made by a novice. Stick to the overpriced wine. Pasta was identical to that served in Italy. Bland but cooked perfect with few but fresh ingredients. Not so much as a sprinkle of spice or a dash of zest.... More

The atmosphere is warm and somewhat European with tighter tables and nice bar. Not a large bar or restaurant, but worth the closer quarters and a slight wait to be seated. BTW, the male host of evening was cool and very friendly, along with the other staff, too. The entree's were delectable, Sat. night special rib eye with browned butter... More

My husband surprised me on Mother's Day by taking me to brunch at Bartolotta's, which is always a treat. It was especially fun because the little downtown Tosa was swarming with people of all ages, out and about enjoying the beautiful, sunny and warm spring day. Brunch was a prix fixe menu, with several choices for each of the three:... More

Enjoyed an excellent family meal with relatives visiting from out of town. Never a disappointment! Need to mention the excellent bartenders as well - every cocktail a masterpiece.

Fabulous! Very authentic. I have been studying Italy since 1955. Amazing! Great wait staff and wine pairings!

We love this restaurant. It is small and quaint, but the food is always excellent. We love going in spontaneously and eating at the bar. Be sure to try the brick chicken.

With a big table of mixed diners, our Server was patient and professional, congenial and efficient.We arrived early, we stayed late, split dishes, split checks, dropped silverware, sent food back, spilled drinks, cheered the Packers, laughed too loud, didn't appear to appreciate the fine food expertly prepared and attractively presented. The bread has a wonderful crust; the Tiramisu fresh and... More

Wawatosa seems to be a mecca of lovely dining, and this restaurant tops the charts there. Caesar salads are perfect and the duck confit pasta is better than Trattoria Ten in Chicago--my former favorite. Delicious calamari and even the bread is good, too, which I never eat, and great service. We will be back.
