    Nice ambiance. Great wine at a reasonable price. Our appetizer was delicious however the pizza was one of the worst I’ve ever had. It was just a simple margherita pizza, but it was not good and most of it stayed on my plate.

    Food had no taste- whitefish special, deviled eggs were nothing special. Our server was overzealous. He kept throwing the Hawaiian hang loose sign. Took long to get things, never brought the lemons for our fish as he was busy taking pictures of the girls next to us. Won’t ever go back.

    Well it was very warm in the dining room; but we didn't want to sit outside because of the heat/ humidity. The service was slow but our server was nice and sweet. Food was average and the wine was not very cold. It what I would expect for Margherita pizza.

    We are from Chicago and like all styles of pizza. The garden salad uninteresting. The wine glasses had a dishwater taste and asked for new ones. The pizza was tasteless and at least could use oregano. We heard the chef was new (3 weeks?). Other tables were offered red pepper, we were not. Heard the usual refrain that “we are busy,” so the bartender was slow with cocktails. If staffing is low then limit reservations. Live so close that we walked over but will not return

    Very disappointing- this used to be one of our favorite restaurants. Have been back twice recently and both experiences were less than impressive. Truffle fries which used to be “to die for” are now made differently and aren’t nearly as good. Pizza was bland/tasteless and salad offerings have reduced toppings. Also, they used to have a really good gluten-free pizza. Last two visits they had no GF pizza crust - “still awaiting delivery”. Unfortunately we are done patronizing this restaurant.

    I made a reservation and we still got stuck at a cocktail table by the bar. Constant noise, people constantly walking past. Server didn't greet us, a manager got our drink order. We were told the menu is brand new and the kitchen staff is all entirely new. (I dont care, I want great food, not an excuse.) Service was very slow. Took 45 minutes to get a pizza. Took 20 minutes to get the left-overs boxed up. The pizza was wonderful, but the service was so bad I won't go back.

    Horrible on all counts. Reservation on patio told inside only. Waited 40 minutes for a charcuterie board that had olive loaf and tiny crackers and had olives. No refills. Waitress too busy. No mention of sold out items until ready to order. Worst. Pizza. Ever. Tasted like Waterford crackers with melted cheese and stewed tomatoes just dumped on top. Was told, sorry we are getting a new kitchen tomorrow but no comps made for any of the terrible experience.

    Very nice atmosphere in a quaint little downtown area. The polenta and Burrata appetizer was fantastic! The deep dish pizza was different than expected but very good and the shrimp scampi pizza was light and had large, cut pieces of shrimp (rather than cheap small shrimp). Very good meal.

    We had a reservation on Saturday May 7 to celebrate Mother’s Day and walked in to noisy, lots of little kids!!!, very busy, local, unknown raffle event. No mention of anything on their website. Cleared out at the time we were done with our meal. Would have preferred a toned down approach for our evening out but what can you do. Would probably go back but I’ll call next time instead of reserving on open table so we can be sure of what we’re walking into!!

    Our second visit since “under new management”. Wide ranging menu (almost too much paper) but something for everyone. Beer list a little too “usual” choices although a goodly number of them. Suggest they ask their distributor to spice it up with more craft and/or Wisconsin beers. One oops was converted to a plus by management - ordered an appetizer but it got lost in the kitchen. When our regular meal arrived sans appetizer we cancelled it / asked it be taken off the check. When we were finishing up the meal the manager dropped by with an apology and our appetizer / packaged to go. “Waste not, want not” he said, apologized again…lots of points earned there Bottom line…we will be back

    Booked a reservation for a birthday. Was seated immediately in a nice back area with a fireplace. Great atmosphere and food. Only downfall was the time it took to get cocktails. Food was great and came out very fast, granted it wasn’t an extremely busy night. I presume the bar was busy and I only noticed one bartender so I’m sure the bar was overwhelmed. Overall, great food and service. Will definitely come back.

    In a world where the new norm is short staffed restaurants, that was not the case at Privato. Our server and 2 bussers were extremely attentive to us and provided a lovely dining experience. The GM even stopped by our table for a chat, who does that? Best salad I've had in a long time, and it was just the house salad. Pizza was divine but the star of the show was the garlic bread, an absolute must have.

    Beautiful location with an equally gorgeous inside. Well equipped bar that can make simple drinks to complicated and yummy ice cream drinks. Not a huge menu but they don’t need it. The apps are delicious (polenta) and salads to pizza and paninos. Can’t miss on these. Small and intimate making a great evening. Staff was very attentive and the food orders came timely. A must in this area.
