Absolutely amazing!! Highly recommend!! Service, Food was spectacular. Can not wait to go back and try more menu items.
Best Italian food in Milwaukee and always excellent service.
Our server was new, but very knowledgeable and well trained. The special, skate and the duck ragu, were outstanding. We enjoyed being seated near the window to watch the world (or at least Milwaukee) go by. We will be back.
We are regulars at Zarletti. We always feel welcomed, the service is great whether we have one of the seasoned professionals or a new server, and the food is always amazing. This is our go to restaurant in Milwaukee!!
Once again Zarletti’s knocks it out of the park. Food is always spot on. Service is wonderful.
The food was prepared and presented perfectly, the wine excellent with the grouper, the aperol spritz were exactly as we had on on the island of Murano and the service outstanding. What's not to like about this dining experience.
The atmosphere was warm, and it was perfect to celebrate my mom’s birthday! Our server, Emily, helped us choose fantastic meal options, and she returned to our table regularly to ensure we were having a great experience. We will definitely be back!
Great service. Great food. Wonderful Italian experience.
Great food , great staff, great atmosphere! We totally recommend it for dinner!!
Food was delicious and authentic Italian. Great ambiance. Wait staff very knowledgeable w unique menu.
The Osso Buco did not live up to expectations. Just bone, fat and marrow, there were barely 2 mouthfuls of edible meat present.
Fantastic! We always sit at the bar because Bryan the manager/bartender is incredibly knowledgeable and great to talk with!
Will definitely be back!!! So good. Ambiance, service, wine selection and the food choices were wonderful. We thoroughly enjoyed this place.
21 Birthday for our daughter
The food was great!! Ambience lively...a bit noisy. Only negative was we felt a bit rushed by our waiter although he was extremely knowledgeable about the food and wine
From the moment I walked in the door and was warmly greeted I knew I’d chosen the right restaurant for the evening. Lots of regulars welcomed by name by the staff. Dined at the bar where the bartender was friendly and very knowledgeable about the wine list and menu. Very helpful suggesting menu items that paired well with the Brunello I had chosen. Followed his lead and had a great meal. I’ll return whenever I’m back in town. Highly recommend!
Great food and great service; we will definitely come back.
Great food and excellent service!
Exceptional food and superb attention and service by Bryan the bar host !!

We had a wonderful Valentines Day dinner at Zarletti! My seafood pasta was outstanding and my wife loved her filet. The service was top notch as well. We arrived 15 minutes early (we had a reservation) and they were able to seat us right away. Staff was friendly and attentive. We will definitely be back.
We went there on Valentine's Day to celebrate multiple things (an anniversary, a birthday, etc.), and we were incredibly impressed by the quality of service and attention to detail! They went above and beyond to make our evening special, all on arguably the busiest day of the year for restaurants. The food was excellent, and the advice given for wine selection was spot-on. I'd recommend this place in a heartbeat!
Waiter was very attentive and food was pretty good. A bit pricey for the food. Cocktail was good but also a bit pricey for what it was. Definitely a place for special occasions only unless you’re very well off and afford $100+ dinners for two.
Great food and service.
The food and service were outstanding. Very fresh flavors. A great new find!
It was my 18th birthday and we had the most wonderful waitress!!
Zarletti's is an amazing dining experience. I have been there several times, but was put in a back corner high-top when other table clearly open.
Excellent food as usual! Some of the party hadn’t been there before and they said they would come back. Our server was excellent and very attentive.
Eat there whenever in town; food, service, and atmosphere great! Staff fabulous!
Love Zarletti's!!! Great wine and food. Always a pure pleasure dining here.
Thoroughly enjoyed our recent visit and our waiter made the evening ... wish I could remember her name.
She actually made me realize what a treat it is to have good service. She was on top of every part of the meal but never obtrusive. Our table of four enjoyed traditional fare as well as innovative specials of the night. Portions were just right. All delicious. Can't wait to go back again.
Our server was tremendously knowledgeable regarding the menu and course offerings. His suggestions changed our meal from terrific to fantastic.
Service outstanding, food superb!! Great value for the price. Only complaint is that you are squeezed in like sardines. I felt sorry for the wait staff trying to navigate between the tables— but don’t let this stop you from eating at this fabulous Milwaukee establishment!!!
Conner was very attentive and appreciated the wine compliments of the restaurant for our anniversary. The appetizer plate was very good.
Food was excellent; each of the four in our party ordered a different dish-each dish lived up to the waitress's billing; service was outstanding-our waitress was extremely attentive and thoroughly knew the menu as she provided great insight into each dish we inquired about. Valet parking was quick and easy. Overall, a great experience!
a good spot near the Pfister hotel. like a New York city spot. Good value and interesting assortment
Like it, because I like New York dinning. Please do not take children.. you will ruin it.
Restaurant is small; food is very good. Can’t go wrong w pasta dish. Salads & desserts are good too!
EVERYTHING WAS WONDERFUL,THE FOOD, SERVICE THE WINE
Great experience from start to finish. Fantastic food served at a relaxed easy pace. Wouldn't change a thing. We will definitely be back.
Food was on point, but the whole experience was spoiled becoz 2 guys got into a fight. I was amazed that restraint didn’t even tried to stop em or never really cared about other customer as that affected others experience. Disappointing
