My husband and I have eaten at Zarletti's Milwaukee and Mequon location several times. We had a great meal there recently. The soups were delightful, very fresh and flavorful. I had an amazing pasta dish and my husband had the salmon which was perfect. Service was good. We shared the pistachio crust cheesecake- yum!

Couldn't get into Harry, 300 yards away because they were booked solid. We even called 2 days in advance. Settled for Zarletti's, because that's what we do. Zarletti's has a great atmosphere, with two levels and a sports bar for plenty of room to roam. Ordered the scallops with pine nuts and noodles for $29. Received 3 medium to small... More

We enjoyed Zarletti during our first visit. However, since then, we've had several visits with very poor service - Long waits and inattentive service. During one visit, our server went missing and someone else inexplicably took over (after a long wait), stating that the previous person left because their shift was over. The hostesses tend not to be helpful or... More

Fantastic! This restaurant did a wonderful job for our rehearsal dinner. The food was great and the upstairs location was excellent. Alexandria, our contact person, was so helpful. We loved the option of having a menu with choices for our guests. The tiaramasu dessert was the best we have ever tasted. I highly recommend this restaurant for special occasions or... More

Had a lovely dinner there. Salmon and halibut were wonderful. Great presentation; service. Poppy seed cake needed more poppy seeds! Reservation on Saturday night at 5:30 was good. Was getting busy after that.

Newer location of downtown Milwaukee fame. Pricey for what you get. Good range of menu items for Italian favorites and avant-garde options. Quality ranges from OK to very good. Service can be spotty and erratic. Servers generally good. Free and ample parking.

We there for a family post event late afternoon luncheon. The upstairs venue was very nice, private and suitable fo young people. The menu was varied. The pasta offering was cold and the sauce was not of a quality that an upstanding Italian cuisine resturant would provide. Service was spotty. Had a fine appetizer on the table that required bread...
