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

If you are anywhere West of downtown Milwaukee and want an outstanding restaurant this is the place. Finding ourselves near Wauwatosa for some family business we knew of no area restaurants to have a meal. Came here because of reputation of others in the Bartolotta group and it was a great choice. Located in a charming little area of the... More

We had a gift card for the Bartolotta restaurant group and decided to use it at Ristorante Bartolotta and we were not disappointed. My wife had a 7 and 7 and it was a good one. I had a Buckler NA. The bread was a sourdough from a local bakery and it was served with chilled butter and large salt... More

We have tried several other Bartolotta restaurants, but this was our first experience here. It was pricey, but not as much as expected. A bit dimmer lighting would make it more romantic, but it is still cozy...with closely placed tables. Also, it was not as fancy as Harbor House or Lake Park Bistro, which made it very pleasant. Some people... More
