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

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.
