Took my friend out for his birthday. The food was delicious, and the service was outstanding. Nate did a great job, even paying for my friend’s dessert because it was his birthday!
Very good. Great service and food/drinks
Celebrated a BD here many other great items on menu as well!
I had the salmon and my friends had the warm mushroom salad and both were fantastic.
Had high hopes - was expecting more of a quaint, romantic atmosphere. Very young crowd, louder than I expected. I believe kitchen was overwhelmed- food took forever, was cold and seemed hurriedly prepared. Nothing spectacular. Server never offered dessert at end of meal. Probably won’t go back - although I am sympathetic that some of this may have been related to Covid
Celebrating a birthday. The salad was fine. Nothing exceptional but palatable. The pasta with meatballs was horrible. The meatballs were so hard it was difficult to cut into them. The pasta sauce was very strong with sage. I asked ahead of time if there was a lot of sage in the sauce and was told no that you could not tell it was in there. However, it was overbearing.
Great spot with great food
Our waitress was great! The wine was very good, the bread was tasty, the bruschetta was delicious, the salmon was good. The meatballs were awful they were hard as golf balls (they said they are never like that) and we didn't care for the torchetti. I would go back (not in the very near future) and try other dishes.
Was very excited to try Onesto but was very let down. Server brought us the wrong appetizer, then the wrong salad, and to compensate for his mistakes, gave us a free dessert which we were charged for. Called the manager to inform him and he stated he would be back in touch which he never was. Very disappointing especially considering the price of the meal.
Delicious food and wine — we both ordered pastas and will order them again! The Italian margarita was a good, but a little one-note. Although in normal times I think the ambience could be cozier, we really appreciated the generous spacing between tables and the care staff took to make the experience as safe as possible.
It was amazing and the second level is so cute.
I always have a great dinning experience at Onestos!
Eric and his team always do such a great job. My friends and I have really enjoyed this summer on the Onesto patio.
Best Italian in town!
Our server was attentive while being safe. The food was delicious!
Onesto has done a great job to enforce social distancing while not compromising the dining out experience. It actually felt like a normal night out to dinner despite the times. Fantastic service as well!
Simply amazing experience here. The ambiance is immaculate. We came to celebrate my graduation and they sat us on the upper level. The architecture is original with cream city brick and exposed ductwork- stunning & a true Milwaukee experience. Our waiter was extremely courteous and couldn’t have done his job better. The food was incredible- our favorites being the burrata, cheese plate, and the Fusilli. The latter in particular was impressive- beautiful truffle flavor and pasta cooked to perfection. Will certainly return again & again.
Excellent food and service.... Will be back!
Had a great dinner at Onesto this week. The server was extremely knowledgeable about the food and wine options as well as our allergy issues. The appetizers were very tasty and the both the salmon and fusilli with meatballs was very flavorful. Ambience was fine as we chose to eat on the sidewalk out front, but the inside looked very warm and inviting had we chosen to eat there. Would definitely recommend and make a return visit.
Food was a amazing as always! I messed up my original reservation and they helped move things around to fix the issue
My Fiancé and I really enjoyed this restaurant. The ambiance is romantic and they have a great selection of wine and cocktails. Our favorite dish was the charcuterie and cheese board with fruit and nuts. I highly recommend it!
Nate was an excellent @ knowledgeable bartender, burrata app & our dinners were great.
Great server, great food! Would definitely go to Onesto again.
I love this place but tonight was off. We had a reservation at 7:30 and finally spoke to a server at 8:45. The calamari sauce was to die for but the calamari itself was rubber. The meal was fantastic but the extra bread arrived with dessert. Sarah tbe server was a joy to be around but she was obviously dealing with difficulty. I’ll be back and I’m giving them the benefit of covid as an explanation but it wasn’t up tit he standard of what I’ve gotten there in the past
We had a Labor day meal with the family and this was outstanding. The outside seating, service and food was exceptional. Started with a few appetizers and then on to the main course - spaghetti bolegnese. The beef brisket was delicious and main for a wonderful meal. Ended with a little chocolate cake which was delicious. Great night and see you again son!
Wonderful time at onesto as always! Amazing food, very clean and considerate during this time.
Loved our server. She was kind, courteous and attentive. We both thoroughly enjoyed our meals and dining outside on a beautiful evening. Thank you. Nancy
Birthday lunch and last minute reservation. The place was clean and nice inside. Outside was a little busy for me so in was a great choice.
Stopped in for an early dinner. The recommended Corn Bisque wowed us - thank you Kaylie (sp). Both our entrees were full of flavor and not swimming in oil like other places we've been at. My side of scallops made it that much better. Definitely on the return-to list.
Was great like always
We were very impressed with Onesto and the quality of food served. Staff was friendly, informative and helpful throughout the meal. They even gave us recommendations of places to go afterwards. Highly recommend people try the homemade pasta and the sangria mixed cocktail.
Thank you so much for the kind words! So glad to hear that we were able to help you have a great evening both while you were with us and the rest of the night too! Hope to see you again soon.
They forgot about our table but when they realized - service was great and they even provide us the choices of a free appetizer or desert for the mixup. Fantastic food and good atmosphere
When my client called to say their plane was late, I didn’t want to use a full table so I was moved to the bar and served by Michale. What a great treat. His knowledge of the menus was very helpful. Started with the hot fresh bread with a fig, Gorgonzola toasted walnut jar. Cesar was great and then I just couldn’t decide between the aged ribeye or the lobster ravioli so I had both. Pared with a 2014 Brunello. Great thing I took the leftovers and had for lunch today. Highly recommend this place.
Thanks so much for the kind words! We'll be sure the share with Michael how much you appreciated his service. That Brunello is a rock star. Hope to see you again soon!
Great food. Not impressed by their covid precautions. Was seated next to the bar and the my were not enforcing adequate social distancing at the bar. Technically the seats were 6 feet apart but they were allowing people to stand up at the bar and they would get within 2 feet of our table and they were not wearing masks despite the fact that they weren’t eating or drinking. Won’t go bqck until covid is over.
Server was terrific! Storms rolled in, and we were able to easily move from outdoors to inside. Food was very good; wide variety of choices and meets many dietary needs.
Thanks so much for being a good sport about moving around due the storms. Those mid-meal shuffles are never anyone's idea of good time. Hope we get too you again soon, Eric!
Thanks Rob! Always great to hear that people are enjoying themselves at the restaurant.
This was the first time ever eating here with my bestfriend, and I was happy that we were seated before our reservations, I just was not happy about my food being cold and the portion of the scallops at the cost of $12.00 they were not worth that price...(I'm sorry) I get that were in a recession and everyone is trying to bounce back but I would of prefer to have paid half the price or at least $8/ but not $12/ for the extreme small scallops... the waitress was very NICE I had no concerns with service. I hope to go back at sometime and hopeful the food served will not be cooled.
Hi Sara, so sorry to hear that your dining experience wasn't up to either your or our expectations.

Great service and excellent food
Thanks so much for coming in, David. Great to hear that you enjoyed everything. Hope we get to see you again soon!
It was such a delight to enjoy the outside patio option and delicious food.
Definitely appreciate you coming in, Mary! Hope to see you again soon!
My friend and I were celebrating our birthdays. It was a wonderful evening as usual at Onesto.
Happy belated birthday to the both of you! Thanks so much for spending your evening with us. Hope to see you again soon!
