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....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...More

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...More

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...More

I visited with a group of friends on a Friday evening. The restaurant is located in what was likely a former corner bar in a residential part of the Bay View neighborhood. Street parking was easy, even on a Friday night. The decor looks like...More

Diavola pizza is my favorite, a must-try if you like spicy! I also crave the Fungi Ravioli on a regular basis. Salmon risotto is also very good! Their wines change a lot, but the bartenders are very helpful if you tell them what you like.

I love this place! Originally from Kenosha, I feel this place brings the taste of the old town to Milwaukee. Love the thin crust pizza. Never really tried anything else, but everything looks very good. Wine and beer selection is adequate, and the service always...More

Tenuta's never disappoints. Excellent service, delicious specials & very extensive wine list. Wednesday's they take $10 off any bottle of wine. Their pizzas are great. The Calabrese was fresh & tasty.

We were here for dinner one night and appetizers another. Great food and service. Appetizers were very good. Wine list is extensive and different. Took a pizza home with us and it was outstanding

A delightful place tucked in a nice residential neighborhood on the south side of Milwaukee. Clean, neat and friendly. Our waiter was lovely, she introduced the menu and told us about the items and made suggestions. The starter plate was really nice with meats, cheeses...More

As Don V noted, you'll see a mix of dress "levels" at Tenuta's. Our group was in casual clothes - shirts and sweaters, jeans or khakis for the guys, jeans and nice tops for the women. That was a Friday night, arguably a more... More
