About 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!"

IL Mito Enoteca Ratings and Reviews
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.
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!
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.
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!
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.
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!
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.
Other than the lack of attention that our waiter had to our table [it took >10 min for him to come back and get our order AFTER our appetizer had been delivered, and offered parmesan cheese for a pasta dinner and never came back with it] , and the insane mark up on wine [they charge $31 for an $11 bottle]...the worst part was that we had an EXTREME nut allergy, told the waiter, who either didn't tell the chef or they both were under attentive, because our appetizer was delivered to our table with pesto (which contains pine nuts). If I hadn't eaten the first bite and recognized what it was, my boyfriend would have ended up in anaphylactic shock and we would have been at the hospital before the waiter had come back to check on us or take our order for dinner. The appetizer wasn't even comped. I was more than disappointed.
My wife and I went to Il Mito to celebrate finishing our Christmas shopping. It is our favorite place to dine in the Milwaukee area, and we've been there many times over the past few years. My wife had a delicious seafood special dish, while I had their tenderloin special. As usual, we were delighted with the food, the service, and the ambiance. It's really nice to go to a place where the staff recognizes you as a returning customer (thanks, Caesar!).
Il Mito has had their ups and downs over the past few years, but seem to be back on track. A bit of a frustration with our reservation. Initially we were told our table wasn't ready but there were places at the bar so, no problem. But after half an hour with still nobody coming to get us, we checked with the hostess. Apparently they had forgotten us and had been seating walk-ins instead. But they quickly got a seated and after that all went well. The food is great. Table service is terrific. We will re-start being regulars again, and happy to do so.
