"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

Restaurant was busy for Valentine's Day dinners, so service was a bit slower than prior visits. Only one bartender so took a while for drinks. Also, we were seated close to door and the extremely cold air came in every time the door opened (a vestibule would take care of that issue). Food was FANTASTIC and restaurant ambiance was great! Friendly wait staff and overall, we enjoyed our visit.

Service was only fair . Long wait for our food. Even though I had told the staff we were there to celebrate a birthday, there was no recognition of it. Food was delicious.

We had the most amazing, wonderful meal! One person in our group had 7 food sensitivity foods she couldn't have and Chef Michael Feker made everything special for her - from the appetizer to her dessert so she could really enjoy her meal. It tasted amazing and made her feel so good that she could eat and enjoy. He was so well-versed that it seemed easy for him to accommodate everything she needed. Thank you so much!! This was an amazing evening. Everyone loved the food and service. We will be back very soon. The allergy-free/food sensitivities she had to avoid included: gluten, corn, soy, dairy, peanuts, egg, sugar and sugar substitutes. Truly! This was awesome!

Value and quality for price was good. The music was way too loud and too energetic. The dim, intimate setting would be better served with music that is calmer, quieter, more classy.

Very few Italian restaurants please us as much as Il Mito does. We do not hesitate to make it a Special Occasion destination. Cozy, well run, conscientious staff, and the food is exceptional. (Chef Fekker's family recipe Bolognese is to die for!)

Awesome lasagna but terrible pizza.
Meatball appetizer was fabulous but the Cesar salad dressing was overly lemony.
Service was good but tables were really close to each other.
The Italian Cosmo was also delicious. We will be back.

We appreciate the friendly service. Lasagna was good, Caesar salad was good and the regular pizza was good. Unfortunately, this time the drinks were a disappointment. I did not get my martini the way I asked for it and 2 others at the table were not impressed with their cocktails either. My drink that was straight up came with so many ice chunks it was not enjoyable to drink. The gluten free pizza crust was not very tasty.

A delightful dining experience, as always! Luis was our server and he is simply awesome, attending to every detail with grace and a smile, and the food was divine. My husband and I both had specials (he the shrimp pasta and me the salmon with a modified side of parmesan polenta rather than the crab pilaf due to my shellfish allergy), and they were outstanding. Always a fun evening out there. Cheers!

Pumpkin ravioli was amazing, would go back just for this dish. My husband found the Bolognese a little too spicy, maybe from the Italian sausage. Sat near the door during cold weather, fairly drafty. Service was outstanding.

We have been enjoying this restaurant for many years and we've recommended it to several in our circle. Their dishes are the type that taste so wonderful that you have to share them. I would highly suggest making a reservation on Friday and Saturday.

We went with an couple who had never dined there before. They loved it. My husband and I call it our favorite restaurant and that’s saying something considering the great restaurants Milwaukee has to offer. The only disappointment was no cappuccinos after dinner, apparently the machine was broken. Oh well, we’ll be back.

Great food, service and ambiance, especially for date night or girls night out but unfortunately, not for business! I will not bring business associates unless the antiquated billing process is updated. It’s pertinent for business professionals to have itemized receipts for expenses, something this establishment can’t provide which forces is to go to other local establishments; a shame, especially for those of us who entertain often.

Great service. Our order came up fast which was nice. I had to bolognese which was so flavorful and a little spicy - which is different than I have had other places. I loved it. The others with me had the rissoto and were equally happy with their choice. Il Mito is a reliable choice for good food, nice atmosphere, and great service.

I loved the ambiance as soon as we walked in... so cozy and romantic! My husband ordered the bolognese and I had the seasonal pumpkin ravioli... both were delicious. The only thing is that I would have liked a small side salad along with it. Delicious cocktails and wine, and the water was topped off often (a big selling point with me). Will absolutely go again the next time we are in town!

I have been to this location a few times but this last experience wasn't great. First of all the waitress was fairly new and could not answer any questions pertaining to drinks or the food. She had to run to find out the answers three times. And I was shocked at how little the portions were compared to the sister restaurant Zesti in Hartland. My friend's meal was also mostly just noodles with very few vegetables or shrimp. It was just disappointing and actually somewhat embarrassing seeing that I was hosting a friend from out of state.
