Zarletti - Downtown Ratings and Reviews
Nice setting, friendly staff, and cozy place to eat with a good vibe. It was 10 degrees outside so we settled for the pasta dishes; rabbit Ragu and their Bolognese. Both were excellent. They could upgrade their bread, as it was mostly a crunchy white bread. Tasty, but not a classic rustic Italian bread.
The waiter was excellent. He was observant and knew the menu, so could offer personal recommendations.
I would definitely go back to sample the other dishes.
We have relocated and no longer get to regularly dine at one of our favorites in the world, MKE has come along way in providing world class dining. Zarletti’s helps to set a gold std. in MKE, driving both culinary and service expectations right down to the house made Lemoncello .
This was our third visit to Zarletti. It has been consistently excellent. We love the warm intimacy of the restaurant, the friendly and knowledgeable waitstaff, the superb Italian winelist, and the high quality food experience. It is our "go-to" restaurant when visiting Milwaukee.
We had a reservation and the gentleman who sat us was in a pinch as the earlier seating hadn't vacated. He communicated beautifully with us and gave us options. We were happy to wait at the bar for the table he planned for us.
Matt was our waiter and really knew his stuff. Great recommendations for wine and food. The food was melt-in-your-mouth delicious!
We will definitely return!
The whole night was amazing!! Started with grilled shrimp wrapped in bacon!! Outstanding. Caprese salad was delicious - firm tomatoes and nice and cold! Enteess were halibut and salmon which were cooked to perfection. The waitress was awesome and incredibly friendly and attentive throughout the night. Love this place and will keep coming back.
