The food and atmosphere was great. Price was what we expected. The waitress should have paid more attention to our table instead the routy table with people using obscene language and acting up.

We enjoyed it for party of 4, we reserved on Saturday night, and the noise was beautiful in a lovely and well lively place. Seating was good in terms of Covid and the Manager greeted us, we always appreciate and love when we are met and introduced to, because that makes the restaurant friendly, warm, and welcoming. Food is amazing and dessert was BLISS. Must return to experience brunch and the entire menu~

Every time I’ve came to Onesto has been beyond perfect. This time I took my step mother with me and we had a fantastic time, with the help of Onesto. Drinks are paired really well with their menu and the appetizers are a beautiful precursor to the rest of the equally (if not better) entrées. I had the Bruschetta and Olive Tapenade before enjoying the Lobster Ravioli as my meal all while sipping a Moscato from the Piedmont region of Italy. While I may not want to admit it I had to indulge in their desserts and try the Tiramisu. It was a phenomenal dance between bittersweet cocoa and the coffee flavors coming through in the lady fingers. Highly, highly recommended taking a trip down to Onesto for a dessert if not for your whole night!

I took my parents out for dinner. It was a special occasion for them and they loved every bit of the experience; the wine, appetizer, main, dessert, the whole 9 yards. They said they would definitely come back again.

Only reason for the 4 stars is because we were ask to seat next to the entrance. However there was a table by the window that wasn’t reserved.

It was dim and very warm and comfortable. The service was fantastic and the food came out quite fast. The food was great but the asparagus was a bit under cooked. Otherwise the flavor was awesome as well as the aroma.

Wonderful food and ambience. Perfect choice for our anniversary.
But our waiter was a disappointment: absolutely not interested in us or our orders. He just did his job. No eye contact at any point, just put the food down in front of us and left. Had to pry the complete dessert list out of him, luckily I had looked at it beforehand, so I could get what I wanted.
A shame for such a nice restaurant. Still giving it five stars for the food.
Next time I’ll ask for the lovely waitress, who was taking really good care of her tables and having a blast.

We loved our dinner at Onesto! We sat at a high table in the back of the bar which is a great, cozy spot. Three of us had the Wild Mushroom Ragu which is a rich, savory and satisfying dish especially on a cold snowy Wisconsin night. Highly recommend Onesto for excellent food, great atmosphere and top notch service.

Came back for the warm mushroom salad. Was different than the first time & not warm. Still good but not out of this world like first time. Fusilli didn’t have a ton of flavor. Could have used some Parmesan.

I had coworkers in from out of town and I wanted to show them how great MKE is. Onesto is my favorite spot and it didn’t disappoint. I was so happy to see the mushroom ragu was back on the menu. Everyone had a great dinner. Our server was knowledgeable and also very patient with one of the more challenging members of our party. Thanks!
