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

Diner Reviews
  • "The evening started out not so great but then ended really well. We had reservations for 8pm. We were running a few minutes behind so we called and were told - no problem, your table is ready. There were 3 of us. When we arrived the hostess told us about 5 minutes. We checked in a couple times until 8:40 when we finally had to say - hey! Its awesome that you guys are so busy but we're starving and we kind of need to know what's the deal! They were so nice and brought us appetizers on the house and we were seated shortly after that. The food was great, the appetizers were great and the service was great. We will definitely return and we are also thinking of attending some of the culinary cooking classes offered."

  • "We had the special of Salmon which was exceptionally good. The scicilian salad was excellent. Coffee was very good. Servers were attentive, but not overbearing. We will come back. "
    Dined on 4/20/2014
  • "We went for Easter Brunch thinking it might be quite special and was highly recommended. The menu was small w only one special for Easter so we ordered from the regular menu. The zeppolini was just fried dough not resembling the description of hand made donuts . We both ordered the Argentina plate. Spinach was excellent as far as the empanadas more dough less flavor Portions are small but at least not overpriced. I'll give it a try again for dinner some time but frankly we would not recommend the brunch. "

  • "This restaurant was the best I've been to in Milwaukee area, and one of the best (top 3) Italian restaurants I've been to. The ambiance and area seems to be up and coming. Food was terrific, three on our party and we all went with tip three recommendations: spaghetti bolgenese, lasagna and osso bucco. They were simple but fantastic. Fruite de mar appetizer stole the show as well. Wine list is not extensive but very good, and prices are competitive with a wine shop! Overall best I've been to in Milwaukee!"

  • "Each time we dine here our meal and service is outstanding!"

  • "Best Italian food ever tasted. Service was great very friendly and courteous. Very good selection of red wines especially their house wine. Place was quiet and romantic and it was worth the drive from Chicago to Milwaukee..."

  • "Once again, Il Mito has lived up to its own high standards. Our meal was delicious. We were seated shortly after we arrived. The staff was so welcoming and attentive throughout the evening. It is a pretty unique experience to feel so "at home" in a restaurant."

  • "Interesting menu selection, great food! Would recommend."
    Dined on 4/6/2014
  • "Everything about the meal was wonderful. My husband, who is loves spaghetti is also quite stingy with his compliments. Your Feker's Spaghetti Bolognese elicited rave reviews from him. My Braille Di Mail was equally delicious."
    Dined on 4/5/2014
  • "We enjoyed the staff, food, and wine selection very much. If this was closer to where we live we would be recognizable faces at Il Mito. Great service, and interesting food offerings that are right up our alley. The wine we had was one that was not on our regular rotation but we are keeping our eye out for a source to enjoy at home. Fantastic dining experience."

  • "There were only about four tables occupied but service was slow. We arrived at one and left at two thirty. We started with fried mozzarella. It came with pesto & red sauce. The red sauce was excellence. There were small chunks of tomatoes w/a hint of basil. I could have eaten an entire bowl of that. The mozzarella was a little greasy. I think it just needed to be drained a little more. Next, we had tomato basil soup. They have the best tomato basil soup I have ever eaten. It was soup & not bisque. My brother and daughter order lasagna. Excellent! I ordered crab ravioli with shrimp. The shrimp were cooked perfect. Nice & juicy. But the ravioli tasted old. And the breaded fried onions on top gave the dish an old greasy taste."
    Dined on 4/1/2014
  • "The food was terrific and our server was beyond outstanding! We were seated directly in front of the bar, and that area was very cramped. I could have literally reached over to the table next to me and taken a bite of the lady's food we were that close together. I kind of wish we could have been seated elsewhere (if there was anywhere else), but it worked."

  • "We've dinned at Il Mito in the past, enjoyed the food, & the service has been so friendly. This time the hostess was rude, barely acknowledged us as we came in, and then proceeded to sit us right next to another couple even though other tables were available. However, our server, Stacy, was completely friendly and more than made up for the hostess. She was patient, knew the menu well, and raved about her favorites (complimenting us on our choices afterwards too!) The food, as always, was outstanding. My only concern is that for couples dining out, the space can be really tight - waitstaff has to squeeze between the tables to the point of their backsides getting dangerously close to our drinks."
    Dined on 3/29/2014
  • "Il Mito is one of our faves now. We are Gluten Free and we love the bread and the selection. It is the best GF pasta in town, in our opinion. We love the service, atmosphere, and food at Il Mito. :)"

  • "Nice neighborhood-oriented place. Appetizers and entrees were excellent. My wife and I split a pear puff pastry for dessert that was a bit of a disappointment, but still pretty good. The duck breast entree was perfectly done with a great sauce that went well with the flavor of the duck. The lamb shank was done with some spices that added just a little "kick" to it, and tasted great. Service was attentive and the hostess was also paying attention to each table to make sure everything was handled well."
    Dined on 3/28/2014
  • "I had my sister and brother-in-law visiting from Va.. They lived in Italy for a couple of years and obviously loved the food there. We've been to many "Italian" restaurants both here and Va. Beach, and I believe we enjoyed Il Mito as much as any place we've been. The food and service were outstanding. John was our lead waiter, but, what we liked was all the others would pitch in when needed to keep everything moving smoothly. We will visit every time they visit, and I will drop in on occasion myself."

  • "Their Ceasar salad is among the best in the the Milwaukee area. The delicious food was topped only by the personable, attentive waiter."

  • "We dined at Il Mito for a birthday and were glad we chose to celebrate there! The food was exceptional and the staff were welcoming + attentive. Our table was located in the area where Chef Feker teaches cooking classes. The main dining room seemed on the loud side, but the demonstration kitchen was quiet and intimate. I asked for the gluten-free menu and was not disappointed with the options or the assurances from staff that they treat GF requests very seriously. (I don't have celiac disease but do have an auto-immune disorder that is much better controlled when I avoid wheat/gluten.) The food was delicious. We are now very tempted to sign up for one of the offered cooking classes!"

  • "Worth a trip from the North Shore to celebrate birthdays with friends. Not only is the food consistently wonderful, the desserts make for a perfect ending."
    Dined on 3/19/2014
  • "The lunch date I had with my friends was very enjoyable here. The food was very good and the service was excellent. I like the atmosphere here and the noise level is great. We were able to talk and enjoy our lunch. I always look forward to coming here to see what is new on the menu. I also enjoyed the music that was playing, added to the enjoyment of visiting with my friends."
    Dined on 3/20/2014
  • "Some of the most flavorful food my wife and I have ever tasted. The spaghetti bolognese was tastey with just the right amount of spice. The Margarita pizza with the whole leaf fresh basil. Besides being my wife's favorite kind of pizza, now, Il Mito margarita pizza has captured her heart. Even the bread and oil with roasted garlic was a sensation. We can't wait to try the east side location."

  • "Love Il Mito. We go there a few times a year. The seafood pasta is fantastic, but I could say that about anything I've ordered there. I'm a little stuck in always having the Cesar Salad, but I like the way it is done and would hate to pass it up."

  • "Reservations are necessary. Hearing every word of our neighbors' conversations took away from the romantic ambiance. Our waitress was very friendly. We started with the crimini arrostito which had a rich, savory taste. I wanted to drink the left over tomato sauce. There were six small mushrooms in the order. Herbed bread was good. My husband had the gnocchi con coniglio, I had the risotto con carciofi. The coniglio was very savory and all the flavors balanced nicely. My risotto had a milder taste but was still very rich. The crackling added a nice texture contrast and the flavor complemented very well. For dessert, my husband got the pear sorbet - not great but good. I had the chocolate hazelnut torte and LOVED it."

  • "Went for a date night and had a lovely time. Was seated right behind the Chef giving a class so got to listen to him for free (a fun bonus) and now will probably go back for his class. Looked like a lot of fun! Food was great, lots of interested items to choose from. I had the rabbit gnocchi and my boyfriend had the duck. Both delicious. Creme brulee for dessert was also very very good! Can't wait to go back. Waiter was OK, could have been a bit more attentive but was not horrible by any stretch of the imagination."

  • "A popular restaurant we were told to make a reservation, now I can see why. Although all the tables were full, the service was fairly quick. I had the dinner special of beef spare ribs and my wife had gluten free pasta and seafood. We both enjoyed our meal and the cost was not above normal prices. Parking is a challenge."

    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "A pleasant dining experience. The Potato-Asparagus soup was delicious. The vegetable panini I ordered was enough to take home half and my friend's Caesar Salad with chicken was a good portion. We were dining in February and were seated near the front of the room so that, when the door opened, it was chilly. Attentive service, maybe too many visits to the table to see if everything was fine, but a very pleasant wait staff. I would visit again and recommenid Il Mito to others."
