“Great food”
Reviewed February 19, 2014 via mobile

Excellent selection of wines. The service was great. Reservations are needed, but we were able to get a table after a short wait. We enjoyed appetizers at the bar and when we were done our table was ready. Menu is full of choices for everyone.

The restaurant was recommended by fellow travellers and it did not disappoint. (As it turns out, it is also on our hotel's recommended list).

I had the evening special, which consisted of pork medallions over a lovely sauce with gnocchi and brussel sprouts.
The test of a dinner with brussel sprouts is the texture, and these were spot on.
The sauce was delicious and the recommended wine for the evening complimented it well.

As it is a small restaurant, I recommend making a reservation.

(Dinner party consisted of 3, and all enjoyed it. Service was good, did not rush. Food was timely)

“Superb in all Categories”
Reviewed January 13, 2014

Three of us had a pleasant Sunday night dinner at Tenuta's and what a great discorvery this was. The food was excellent, the wine list was great and the atmosphere perfect. With soft background music like Sinatra and Glen Miller playing, we felt like we had stepped into a movie scene. Our server was fun and knew when to appear. Everyone was very friendly like we were regulars and I think we will be. Don't overlook the desserts. The Tiramisu is a must try. Overall, this is what dining should. Parking can be a little tight as they are located in a residential neighbor, but well worth it.

“All 6 of us were quite pleased!”
Reviewed December 29, 2013

What a quaint little restaurant tucked into a neighborhood in Milwaukee. We chose this restaurant based on its proximity to the Alchemist Theater and we were not disappointed. We had reservations for 6 and although running late (and we called) they held our table for us. Their suggested red wine was superb and everyone's meal was excellent. Two of the six shared a pizza and that was equally tasty! You will not be disappointed and we hope to make it back there soon.

“Great pizza and service!”
Reviewed December 15, 2013

Visited Tenuta's for the first time recently and really liked it! Nice warm, pub-type atmosphere and great service. You have to try the pizzas which are delicious and varied in ingredients. Will definitely eat there again.
