"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

Overall a very good experience. Bolognese was outstanding as always and priced fairly. However, the bottle of Chianti we ordered was seriously overpriced.

Last visit to this restaurant was about 7-8 years ago. Returned last night. Service was good, food mediocre. My husband liked his better than I did. He had chicken parm. I had chicken carbanara and Caesar salad. Disappointed, was looking forward to it.

For a few precious moments, we were transported to Tuscany. We were in a quiet little village eating the local delicacies. We ordered several appetizers as our meal, each one came out at the perfect time, we paired our meal with a fantastic housemade old-fashioned and some smooth red wines. We were able to leave the world behind and enjoy each other's company for a pleasant evening. The Chef came out to answer questions and joke with his quests, such a wonderful experience. Bravo Chef Feker!

Il Mito used to be our favorite restaurant (especially the old location down on Virginia Street). This was the first first to the Tosa location in about a year. We sat at the bar for a martini before dinner. We asked for our Martinis to be extra dry, but there was still too much Vermouth in them, and they were served barely chilled (not shaken enough, glass not chilled, etc)
Dinner was decent, but the linguini special I order was not special, only just ok. We also did not receive the drink straws we asked for, for our water.
Probably most annoying was that the food came out too quickly...our entrees arrived while we were still eating our salads. I expect that from a chain restaurant, not Il Mito.

Small complaints, but I expected more and we will think twice before returning.

First time here and we were impressed. Great atmosphere and outstanding food. Started with the meatball and a caprese salad as an appetizer. They were nice enough to split the salad in two plates. Both items were excellent. My wife had the spaghetti Bologna’s and I did the mushroom tortellini. Both were great and the tortellini was amazing. Everything was fresh and hot. Minimal wine list but the house wines by the glass were excellent. Server was really friendly and attentive, but seemed to know very little about the menu or dishes. Considering staff shortages, I will take friendly and attentive anytime. She was very gracious about getting answers to our question. Prices were very reasonable considering the food and experience. Highly recommend.

Food is delicious. Have been there several times and never had a bad meal. A little pricey for the size of the meal but everything is these days. Beautiful setting for dates birthdays or just a get together.

Started out with a delicious cucumber martini. Wonderful Caesar salad presented on a chilled plate which makes a world of difference. The pumpkin ravioli and lasagne was delicious. Salmon special was perfectly prepared. Overall, a wonderful dinner and experience.

The outdoor dining area was not an option. Surprising given Covid. Large dining space but 3 sets of guests were seated within 4 feet of each other. Also surprising with Covid. We should have beef seared apart from each other. Plenty of room available. Service was ok. Food was good but not great.

Delicious, freshly prepared food and the perfect amount, for a reasonable price. Chef Fekker does not disappoint us. We'll be back soon.

The food was excellent—especially the lasagna that was very unique since it was made with short ribs. Would like to go back and check out the pizzas and sit on a very nice looking patio (too hot last night).
The tables were pretty close together and I thought it was odd that the host and servers wore masks but the wait staff did not.

Our reservation was on a night the restaurant was understaffed and they pre-apologized if waits were excessive. I'm sure that thanks to our waitperson the timing was excellent. Kudos on our two dishes - the pasta carbonara and the pork scaloppini done much like veal Francais. Also a great Caesar salad.

This is my third time visiting IL Mito. Once again a great experience. From the excellent food quality to the great service. This is not the typical Italian food you find at other restaurants where everything is buried in a heavy red sauce. This is real Italian food, like you're eating in a small family restaurant in Tuscany! On top that the chef is a really nice guy and actually cares about his customers. How unique! Thanks IL Mito, and we will be back!

We were visiting Milwaukee for a dance competition. My daughters did very well (1st and 2nd place!) so we went out to celebrate. It reminded us of a little bistro back home in Chicago that we love. Our waiter Luis was wonderful and was able to recommend things and make substitutions when asked. The place was so pretty and cozy and the food was delicious! So going back when we visit again!
