The Bartolotta restaurants are consistently good. I've always thought in terms of quality, service and great oysters, Harbor House was the best of the lot. I would say that Ristorante comes very close to the top. We had dinner for 6 there over the holidays. Everyone enjoyed there meal and the service was top notch. If I were to have... More

The food is phenomenal and the location is quite romantic. When they have a Truffle dinner you have to go.

Located in a late 19th century Cream City Brick building in the Heart of Wauwatosa is the spot for Italian Food. This was the first of the Bartolotta restaurants in Milwaukee and remains a standard for superbly prepared Italian Food. It is my favorite of all of their restaurants because I love Italian Food and the intimate and cozy seating.... More

The restaurant has an intimate setting in the middle of the Wauwatosa Village area. The chef has interesting takes on Italian classics and makes phenomenal fresh pastas. An artisan cocktail menu is rounded out by a wine list featuring all Italian wines. The service was exceptional and the staff really knew the menu. This is the perfect place for a... More

Ristorante Bartolotta is located in the quaint little village in downtown Wauwatosa, a suburb of Milwaukee. Bartolotta restaurants own and operated many different restaurants in and around the Milwaukee area. Most of their restaurants cater to the upper end of the dining spectrum. On this particular evening, we dined with another couple at Ristorante Bartolotta. This quaint little restaurant is... More

My husband and I love fine Italian restaurants, so upon entering, I found the attractively decorated dining room to be very inviting. Several years ago, on a business trip, my husband had dined at Ristorante Bartolotta, but couldn't remember anything about that experience. The bar, where we had a drink before dinner, was comfortable and the service excellent. After being... More

Of any Italian restaurant I have been to anywhere in the country, this is my favorite place. Everything from appetizers to the main entrée dessert is always expertly done. The fact that this restaurant has been in the same place for 20 years says it all. Off the beaten path in downtown Wauwatosa, this is a place that you must... More

Very good, authentic Italian cuisine. Service was prompt and informative without being overbearing. We began with a local heirloom tomato caprese salad accompanied by their Affettato Misto di Prosciutto e Salumi alla Emiliana - an artisan board of cured Italian meats. Having enjoyed their house specialty, Pappardelle al Ragu d'Anatra (duck) during my previous visit, I opted to try Bistecca... More

The Bartolotta Group is a similar family restaurant dynasty to the D'Amicos of Minneapolis and St. Paul, MN with an array of different types of restaurants around the MIlwaukee area. I have been past this place several times and wondered about it and my friends in Milwaukee have thought that it is the best Italian in town so we decided... More
