My husband and I dined here on a recent Friday evening. We were with another couple. The evening began with tasty cocktails and two appetizers: bruschetta and rolled eggplant. Both were delicious. Two of us ordered pork scaloppini. It definitely did not disappoint :). My husband opted for Chef Fekar’s take on lasagna; the short rib filling was a delight. Our friend ordered the veal Marsala; also delicious. We will assuredly be returning.
This is the third time we’ve made reservations and they’re running at least 20 mins behind. If I wanted a long late, I wouldn’t make a reservation. We were told to wait in the bar but there was literally no place to stand unless right by the bathroom. There was also no attempt by the staff to apologize or make it right. The service was also exceptionally slow this last time with no acknowledgement. Frankly, the whole experience was embarrassing as we were paying a lot of money and entertaining a friend from out of town. It’s unfortunate because I love their food, but I will seriously think twice before dining there in the near future.
We were seated in the back room near the kitchen, which was disappointing. We also were seated at a high table, which isn’t ideal, especially not in a nicer restaurant. I had made reservations weeks on advance so I was surprised that we got a less than ideal table. Would have been a better experience if our table had been in the main part of the restaurant and not shoved in the back room, close to the kitchen.
Everything was delicious, as usual. The service was just right (not overbearing but definitely attentive).
Loud in the back room with a class going on
The waiter told us they had a seafood pasta special which was made with a creamy pesto sauce. I asked him if they could make it with garlic olive oil pesto instead and they did. It was delicious. I ate every last bite. Another one in the group ordered the same and another had the lasagna. We all thought it was delicious. You know it was good when you are still thinking about it days later!
Outstanding good! Wow, exceptional food! Top of the list for best place to eat.
Had lunch with a friend. very nice, able to sit and chat. Food was so good! Portioned and priced just right.
Wonderful food and great service. Italian done right on all fronts.
Delicious food. Try something new and you will be impressed with the perfect meld of flavors. Service is attentive and kind. Ambiance is nice and the lighting makes it so perfect.
Excellent venue and excellent food! Would highly recommend to anyone at anytime!
We went there for a family birthday and had a great experience. Il Mito is a favorite of ours and it did not disappoint. The server was attentive and the beef short ribs were so tender with an amazing flavor. We'll be back again soon!
All the food was just OK… Not good or bad. Just OK.
We always love the food here. It was Valentine's Day, so it was busy, but we never felt rushed. Excellent servide!
Everything was absolutely wonderful, great waiter, great service and as always the food was outstanding!!
Love this place. Quickly becoming my favorite restaurant in the city. And fantastic for gluten-free options.
Food was great and the service was outstanding
Food and Service were excellent. We were not rushed and had plenty of personal conversation time allotted between courses. Highly recommend.
This was our first time at this restaurant. It’s very nice and cozy restaurant with a relaxing vibe. Ambience was great, waiter was very professional and patient. While the food was great, vegetarian options are a little limited.
Drinks and dinners were great.
Service was excellent
Using the open table app , under the special request section, we requested NOT to be seated by the entrance door to the restaurant. When we arrived, our table was right in front of the door. We were told our request was noted on the reservation, but they were not able to seat us at a different table. Unfortunate.
Excellent food & service. Would return without question.
I chose IL Mito as the place to celebrate my birthday. Everything was great but the server didn’t even acknowledge the special occasion even though a bouquet of flowers sat right on the table. She appeared more interested in getting done w/work and leaving. I didn’t expect to get anything free but would have appreciated a simple “Happy Birthday”.
Il Mito gives the sense whatever one chooses from the menu must be their signature dish, a winner, the last bite as enjoyable as the first. Real Italian authenticity. The house wines are very good (Shiraz my favorite) and with a generous pour. The dining ambiance is neighborhood, alive but not too noisy, and with subdued lighting, cosmopolitan and intimate. And the prices very reasonable. (On that score it reminds me of the one-time wonderful neighborhood German restaurant, the now defunct Ritter's Inn, a Milwaukee treasure.) I'll come back again and again, whenever there is need to celebrate. Bravo, Il Mito!
My first visit to Il Mito and throughly enjoyed the experience. Incredible service to go with incredible meal.
This remains a favorite restaurant. Always delicious food and great service.
always stellar wait staff and service. Food is exquisite.
We have dined at il Mito several times. It was very busy this past Saturday, but the food and service remained excellent.
The Mushroom small plate was delicious. We shared the kale and beet salad and were delighted that the kitchen put it on two plates. Each pasta entree was also very special. We will come again.
IL Mito never disappoints. From the warm atmosphere, to excellent service, to tasty menu options, everything is top notch.
We have enjoyed Il Mito for many years. Often we go for special occasions, but this time it was "just date night" and we loved it. The food is delicious and we loved it. We do have our go-to favorites, but this time I had a pizza and my sweetheart had Lasagna. Both were fine choices and reasonably priced. We may use this strategy again to try other items form the menu on date night.
Always a delicious and creative menu, and a value. Wauwatosa is fortunate to have this high quality restaurant in their midst
Our server was a bit aloof, didn’t know much about wine and forgot a couple items we ordered. Plus he and the other server argued several times in front of us and the other patrons, awkward. Plus I think it’s awesome chef Feker does the classes but perhaps shut the door so the loud talking and laughing doesn’t disrupt the rest of us.
Aside from that the food was great, the wine was tasty and the app was divine!
Enjoy our meals . Louis gave exceptional service.
We've been here many times. The food was not as tasty as we have previously experienced. Several of us ordered the special and agreed that it lacked depth of flavor - everything was quite bland in general. Waited quite a long time for service which has not been our experience in the past. The waiter was very nice.
Excellent food and fantastic value. We will definitely be back.
Arrived early for our reservation and they were able to seat us early. Service was bit slow but it was New Years Eve so was to be expected, waiter was apologetic. Food was excellent as always. We recommend it highly and will be back soon. Never disappointing!
My wife and I went for New Years Eve, I had the bass special and it was delicious. The drinks were also great and service superb.
We enjoyed a lovely meal on Christmas Eve after church. We had an early reservation which was good as the restaurant was full by the time we left and the wait staff was hustling to get everyone taken care of. I want to commend them for working to serve us on the holiday and pitching in together to get food served, drinks delivered, bills taken care of etc.
IL Mito did a great job as always. Food was delicious, staff attentive and helpful, nice ambiance to celebrate my friend's big day.
