"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

The service and food are always very good at Il Mito. The tables are spaced apart nicely and all of the servers wore masks.

We frequent Il Mito for many reasons...food, service, ambience. We just love so much about this restaurant. Fernando was our server most recently and he is truly THE BEST! His attention to overall service is amazing! He leaves nothing to ask for and anticipates it before you think about it! Truly, a wonderful experience. If you have not been to Il Mito, you're missing out!

As a New Yorker, working in Milwaukee, this was my first visit to IL Mito. The food was fabulous, simple fare cooked perfectly. Our server was attentive and very helpful without being overwhelming. It is clear they have a great model and I intend to return often while I am here working every month. I highly recommend this kind of Neighborhood Gem

IL Mito came highly recommended and we could see why, great atmosphere, great food and outstanding service. Totally enjoyed ourselves. It was late (8:00) when we were leaving but we could not believe there were tables available at that time for a place of this caliber. Word needs to get out about this place, and then watch the lines form...We will definitely be back.

The waiter gave us the house specials with such zest it was difficult to make a decision they all sounded fabulous. I decided on the blackened salmon and it was delicious. I don’t eat pasta so he recommended cauliflower that was steamed perfect. I would highly recommend this restaurant. The parking is difficult so plan to walk a bit.

This was our first visit here and we were blown away. Not just because it was our first dinner out in over a year, but the food. Wow. We've been to Italy, and this tasted like Italy. You must get the bruschetta. I could have had that as my meal. The pumpkin ravoli was delicious and the bisteca florentina was cooked to perfection and so flavorful. Our server was fabulous (I think it was Edgar/Eduardo? Sorry, you were great!)

Pasta was awesome, the lamb wasn’t so great, but that’s ok. I’ll definitely be returning and I’d definitely get the pesto linguine because that was some of the best pasta I’ve ever had

An airlock would be nice for the front door. On cold days the freezing air travels back towards the bar and dining area getting the food cold quickly.

One of my favorite date spots with my wife. Excellent food, great service. Bartender makes a mean bourbon old fashioned. Tables well-spaced to maintain social distancing right now.

Everything was delicious, from the warm bread and dipping oil, the Caesar salad, the best lasagna in town and wines. And the puff pastry with pear was a perfect finish. Service was great and covid precautions were followed. I would highly recommend dining here!!

Was really nice place. Didn’t tell us we would be seated at the bar top chef kitchen even though I specifically asked for a table. Service was ok, I think the server was new. Brought out the wrong food but was very nice about it. Love the place. But next time if the chef isn’t cooking in front of me would prefer a table. Will be coming back to try again :)

NOT COVID FRIENDLY AT ALL. Zero space between tables. Service was slow. Food wasn’t worth the price and extremely small portions. The ceiling lights kept getting brighter and dimmer randomly through out the evening. Also, when I did the reservation I commented ‘one year anniversary’. That was pointless. We won’t go back there.

As always, we had a wonderful evening dining at Il Mito. Milwaukee is so fortunate to have Chef Fekker in our area. The food is consistent, always uniquely delicious and affordable. The atmosphere is cozy and completely safe dining in this time we find ourselves. If you go, and I do hope more will, ask for Freddie. You will receive an incredible dining experience!
