"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

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.

Food was amazing. They could have done a little something since I told them we were celebrating our 30th anniversary. But other than that the experience was superb.

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!

Food was fair. Short ribs were dry. Noted on reservation that we were celebrating a birthday. There was no acknowledgement of that. Won’t be back for a good while.

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.

We love that iil miito has safe homemade gluten free food for our daughter to eat. We love the chance to try new foods at a fun place and a great value. Chef Fecker and the chefs at ill mito and zesti are our heros

Delicious calamari! Recommend the caprese salad. We tried the salmon, beef ribs, tortellini. Everything was tasty. Found the eggplant appetizer especially good. Duck was tender!

It was a bit too cold in restaurant.

This was our second visit to It Mito and they did not disappoint! Our waiter Luis was exceptional, and the entire staff is extremely attentive without being intrusive. As much as I wanted to try something new, I stayed with my favorite and ordered the Spaghetti Bolognese . I am already craving it again!

We have been here in the past and enjoyed the experience and the food. I am not sure if there has been a change of management but the food was not very good the service was very poor. The restaurant was not busy as it was a Tuesday and yet it took a long time to place our order and get our food. No attention to detail with removing plates, refilling drink or understanding menu items. It did not appear there was anyone in charge of managing the restaurant to address any of the issues.

Ate here 4 times previously. This time we ate in their outdoor patio in back of the main dining room which is quite pleasant. Food has always been very good, but not this time. Watery mojito for $10 not impressive. Great service and kind waiter. Glass of house wine was ok, but not great. I would prefer bruschetta with the bread separate from the topping so the bread stays crisp. 3 small pieces of bread with tomato topping $8 is high. I ordered a breaded fried pork chop with polenta and spinach. Cooked well, but no seasoning on the meat. Tried to put some salt and pepper on the meat, but the shakers were plugged. One of those little details that the really good restaurants do automatically. The orange sauce on the meat was interesting. No more than a few tablespoons of polenta which I thought was stingy and it was not hot. My wife ordered a duck dish with a blueberry sauce. Sauce was good, but the duck meat (supposedly slow roasted, free range bird) tasted freezer burnt, was not prepared well and was tough and dry. Worst entree I've tasted in years at any restaurant. I brought this to attention of the waiter. He was kind enough to take it off the bill. Had we paid for that bad entree our bill plus tip would have been about $105 with no dessert or coffee which I think is high and not a good value. My overall sense is this place is not what it used to be. Perhaps they have a new chef who is not that skilled. Probably won't be back.

After dining at IME we walked out wondering why it took so long to try it. The food was very well made and we were served by the house manager who was a joy and was passionate about every dish on the menu. We enjoyed the beefsteak Florentine, the short ribs braised with Mediterranean flavors, and veal done in a piccata style. Each was delicious and we traded several bites. I want to return and try some of their pastas.
