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!"

The food was delicious. The waitress was pleasant and enjoyable. Tables were a little small for the size of the dishes. We were on our way to a concert and they were able to accommodate our timing.

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.

Had been meaning to go to the restaurant for a while and are very glad we finally went. Food is wonderful and prices are reasonable for the quality of the food. Great sangria. Our only complaint is that the tables are way too close together.

Cozy italian restaurant in Wauwatosa. The menu had the traditional italian selection, but it had creative alternatives which we enjoyed. The food was fresh and delicious and the service was friendly. We enjoyed the creme brulee and tiramisu for dessert. Even the coffee was outstanding. We will be back to eat, but I would like to try some of the cooking classes as well.

The first time I ate at Il Mito's was when they were located just south of downtown. Then recently I was looking for a nice, different restaurant to take a friend for her birthday. I came across Il Mitos on line. So I made reservations and I was not disappointed. Our waiter, Louis, was very attentive to us and to all of the tables he was waiting on. Very friendly and very intuitive about what we would like to eat and drink. Since then, I have been back for a fun lunch with another friend and a business lunch with a client. Each time Louis was our waiter and now we are old friends! The food is absolutely out of this world. Chef Michael has not disappointed in anything I have tried. One day I had the special, pumpkin ravioli, it was truly wonderful!! The atmosphere is so quaint. This is my new go to restaurant. I have only one suggestion, please change the water "jugs" (they remind me of something that would be used at the Machine Shed). I am telling everyone I know about Il Mitos!!!!

We’ve passed by this place countless times for the past couple of years and never gave it a thought. Some friends recommended it and we will never pass it by again! The food is fantastic. The service is warm and friendly. It’s everything you want in a restaurant and dining experience. The only drawback is available parking but that’s far outweighed by the food and value. Don’t pass IL Mito by. It’s unbelievable.

We hadn't been to Il Meto in a while so it was a special treat for a date night with the Mrs. We each had a different special...the wife had the shrimp picatta with fettuccine and I had the scallops & crab meatball Alfredo. The appetizers were fantastic too...stuffed crimini caps.

A delightful dinner at a true neighborhood gem!

We have never been disappointed with il Mito's! This time, we tried Sunday Brunch there - my husband and I, and my mom. Our service was fantastic -- the waiter was perfect-- attentive and friendly in all the right measures. il Mito's is elegant without being snobby - Waiters dressed all in white (like in Europe), along with white table cloths, etc. ... The food was absolutely delicious and creative. My husband had the All-American, I had a Spanish omelet, and Mom had Argentinian French Toast with home-made whipped cream on the side-- say no more! We all had fresh fruit as well. ... Perfect portions and we also had a Bloody Mary with build-your-own garnishes. We can't wait to go back again! This place is a jewel!

Outstanding food and service. Our waiter was knowledgeable about the menu and his wine recommendation was perfect. Particular attention was paid to the pace of the meal. Each diner at our table ordered cocktails, appetizers, salad, entrees, and dessert. Staff was attentive but unobtrusive throughout the meal. The noise level even on a busy Saturday night allowed for relaxing dinner conversation. This was one of the most enjoyable evenings we have had in some time.

Never had a lackluster meal at Il Mito. Celebrated our 55th wedding anniversary with our children & grandchildren and got rave comments on the dinner and service. I believe the eleven of us ordered everything they had on the menu and it was served piping hot and all together. Loui was our waiter and was exemplary. If we have out of town guests we definitely will bring them to Il Mitos for dinner as we know the experience will be always excellent. Chef Feker has created a jewel of a restaurant.
