A word from IL Mito Enoteca
"IL MITO Enoteca was born from my passion for a local restaurant comparable to those I frequented in Italy - a comfortable home away from home, where you can sip a great glass of wine, complemented by an incredible, rustic Italian cuisine.

The Cuisine of an Enoteca is the simplest of Italian cuisines, made with the freshest, highest-quality ingredients that create amazing, complex rustic flavor combinations. Our Enoteca Style menu features homemade pastas, insalati (salads) Piatti Piccoli (small plates), Formaggi (cheeses), Bruschetta, Pizza and Secondi Rustica. It was created so that you may have a big meal with friends and family, or a light snack with your wine.

We at IL MITO Enoteca are grateful for your interest in our passion for food, friends, and life. We look forward to serving you soon and getting you addicted to an unforgettable experience!"
-Chef Michael Feker

    The best restutant not only in Wauwatosa but in the Milwaukee area period. Coming from Los Angeles there are many great places to eat but I have been living Wauwatosa since 2010 and just happen one day in 2011 I walked in Il Mito and it change my entire look on how food should taste, smell and look. The place is amazing with great people and staff one of the best experience till this day. Everytime I go there it's so friendly and make me feel relax. Love this place

    I had only been there once before a long time ago but took a friend this time who loves Italian food and was glad that she really liked it. I did too, the food was delicious. Service was great and although the restaurant was pretty busy, it was not noisy and we could hear each other. They were pretty busy and also very hospitable. It was a good experience and I would recommend it. Lot of choices.

    I took my boyfriend to Il Mito because I have always had marvelous experiences, and he had been dying to try their cuisine since I mentioned it months ago. We enjoyed several dishes and wine; the recommendations were par none, it seemed like our waiter had considerable food knowledge. One thing I didn't remember was how reasonable dinner was in terms of price--Il Mito is creative and fresh and it's an extraordinary value in terms of food and atmosphere. I think we'll definitely be returning for a special occaision

Some items were better and more flavorful than others but all definately pleased me. It's a restaurant they make you feel welcome and at home at. Will be back for sure next time I am in Milwaukee.

    I honestly don't know why it took us so long to eat here?! We celebrated our 11 year anniversary and wanted to go somewhere different. Everything was spectacular. Quality vs quantity is the key. You could tell everything was homemade; which makes all the difference. Looking forward to coming back and celebrating my husband's 40th birthday in November!

    My husband and I had our first official date night this past Friday at IL Mito. We LOVED it! The food and service were amazing. My husband had a perfectly cooked pan seared Salmon and I tried the Gnoochi. Having both come from restaurant service backgrounds we have a passion for fine dinning and IL Mito delivered. We will certainly be back and can't wait to try the private cooking lessons too.

    The salmon with Blackberry sauce and the Duck were better than average. I had the Rabbit with Gnocchi and was disappointed. The dish was a little bland and the portion was small. The small amount of rabbit that I received was tough and had bits of what I assume to be cartilage. I ordered the Puff Pastry with fruit. I received a square of pastry with some sort of tasteless fruit (jelly?) in the center. On the side were a couple of strawberry slices and some whipped cream. The pastry was tough and without a knife was close to impossible to eat. Although my friends enjoyed the meal and my wife was satisfied, I drew the short stick and it will be difficult for me to return.

    Enjoyed our selection of foods, lasagna, the Antipasto Misto plate with Spanish Manchengo, Gorgonzola and Brie cheese. We enjoyed our meal on a Sunday night and the evening was very low key with great attention from wait staff and very tasty food. The lasagna tasted similar to my Great Italian Aunt's and I tasted the rack of lamb which as perfect tenderness with a wonderful saucey taste.

    Dined on 7/3/2014
    We arrived at 7:02 for our 7:00 reservation and were asked to sit at the bar. We were there for 18 minutes before the bartender came to us. Immediately upon ordering our drink we were seated at the table outside which we had requested and which had been open since our arrival 20 minutes prior. The server was also very slow. It took another 15 minutes to get the drinks we ordered from the bar. No complaints about the food - it was delicious. However the wait for a table that was ready as well as the wait for service and the rather dismissive attitude from the bartender leaves me wondering if we should go back again. Hopefully it was just a fluke.

    Our first time dining at Il Mito- but won't be the last! The Bartender and atmosphere were both great- and our out of the way table was perfect. Our waitstaff was attentative without being overbearing. And the food- the bread was to die for- my husband had the Special which was duck with a fruit reduction that was fabulous- I had the crab stuffed raviolie which was also very good. Highly recommend this Gem of a restaurant!
