Wonderful food and service. Ambience is crowded and a bit loud.

We have been to the restaurant before so familiar with the offerings. This trip was to celebrate my wife's birthday and we couldn't have had a better time. Hats off to our waitress and the chef. Loved the entire experience and we will be coming back.

Amazing find just blocks away from the theater scene. Impeccable service, great menu selections, wonderful chef, and extensive wine list. Try the lamb lollipop appetizer and their Bolognese. Really special. Will definitely return!

Food was excellent. Server was prompt but he seemed hurried and at times annoyed. Ambiance was quiet.

We visited with friends to celebrate two birthdays and a retirement. The food was absolutely delicious and our waiter could not have been more friendly and attentive. We really enjoyed the pasta special and the ravioli special for the day. We were presented with three deserts for sharing at the end of our meal and they all were delicious! The waiter was very knowledgeable about Italian wines and was able to recommend something for my taste. It was wonderful. I wish we could have stayed longer!

We go to your place nearly every Valentine's Day and LOVE it. Everything was, as usual, fabulous, with one small exception. My wife was underwhelmed by the spaghetti carbonera and wished she had ordered something else. Perhaps you can give that dish a little attention? She is a very good judge of food, by the way, and is a very good cook.

The couple that was with us also had a fabulous time. Please keep up the great work!

Very confused as to why I was sat at the bar while there were plenty of tables open throughout the night.

Zarletti’s has been one of our favorites since it opened. The ambience is so lovely. We like the size of the restaurant. Our wait staff was excellent , friendly and extremely well trained. I followed her suggestions and had a delicious meal and wine. My husband almost always orders osso buco; he feels it is always the best he has ever eaten.

Great authentic Italian. They reserve seats at bar for diners, go across the street to the hotel bar for a predinner drink if they are that busy.Small restaurant, close tables, but has a great energy. Waitstaff professional and spot-on. Osso Buco is perfection! Worked well for 2 to split a first course and then also split second course. No room for dessert, but they looked fabulous.

We love Zarletti. The food is great. The atmosphere is perfect for either a quiet conversation or a larger party. But the main thing is the service...they have easily the best wait staff in Milwaukee. Thais why we go back so often.
