I brought my parents here for dinner and it was great. My dad is an older Italian guy so I did not know what to expect. He is generally really picky and hard to please. He loved it and so did the rest of the family. The only minus was that the chairs were a little wobbly for the bigger... More

Decided to call Tenuta's for take out pizza while watching 5 of our grandkids. The pizzas were very good and were hot. We ordered the thin crust. The service was very speedy. We compared prices to other places and they were very competitive. We also ordered the Tenuta Salad and the house dressing was quite tasty. We would be happy... More

Took my family there to celebrate a college graduation. Tablet for five. Small, quaint, cool neighborhood, and great food with great service. Appetizers, salads, pastas, tiramisu, was excellent. Laura made us feel welcome and served us well. This would be a great place to take a client, or for a romantic dinner. I will be back.

Convenient, quiet, clean, excellent service. I had spaghetti and meat balls. The marinara was good, but not at all complex and thin (which is ok). The meat balls were the same, but softer than average. Ok if you are in Kenosha, but not worth a trip from Milwaukee.

While we enjoy the pastas, country and fish dishes at Tenuta's our all time favorite is their classic thin crust pizza. It is a perfect balance of crust and ingredients. We'll be eating there twice the end of May 2016 when we visit friends in Milwaukee. We moved to Tucson two years ago and are still on a quest for... More

Once I arrived to meet my date after a 2 hour drive to the restaurant (I live in another state), we were told we have 60 minutes to eat and be out of here. I must say we had a reservation made in advance over the telephone to the restaurant and they did not disclose to us we needed to... More

The service was great, then it went downhill. We were really looking forward to trying Tenuta's as we had heard good things. Maybe an off night?? Our son had the duck ragout and it was the worst tasting duck any of us had ever had. It was way off and the rest of our meals were OK at best. Probably... More

Was here a while ago and like it very much! We were recently looking for a place to go in Milwaukee for a birthday dinner and I recommended trying Tenuta's. Everyone loved it! We each tried a different pasta so we could share, they were all very good. Service was excellent, atmosphere is cozy, a great place!

This was our second trip to Tenuta's and we were quite excited. Our first visit last summer was fantastic. This time was disappointing. Our starter Tentuta Salads were great, but then we had to wait an inordinately long time for our entrees. All we got from the server was, "Sorry folks, we're a little behind, can I pour you some...

Read the reviews on Trip Advisor as I was looking for Italian and we are in town on business. 4 of us went to this amazing hole in the wall and it was worth it. Driving there we thought we were lost as it is in a residential area, but once we walked in, we knew it was going to... More
