Pasta layered with luscious bechamel, Wisconsin cheese, shredded Angus beef short ribs topped with tomato sauce and Parmesan
Stuffed Pork Chops Wisconsin
Chef Feker's 2011 Revival Winner Recipe. Hormone and antibiotic free pork chop stuffed with blue cheese, bacon and mushroom with Georgia peach pan sauce, served with brown butter rice pilaf and roasted brandy mushrooms
My entree was off the menu-orange chicken- and was very good
My wife had the steak special: the quality of the meat was questionable and no one asked my wife how she wanted her steak made
When my wife asked for steak sauce it took the waiter some time to figure out what steak sauce is
We also had to ask for more water
Not very attentive service
We were celebrating a special occasion and had a very good experience. Food was very good; great wine; and good service. Good value for our dining dollar. I would recommend the restaurant.
Michael Feker and staff did a great job of welcoming us to their dining establishment. The menu is diverse with great choices and 2 specials, which we didn't order. My gnocci in vodka sauce with shrimp was very rich, my husband enjoyed the linguini with seafood in a delicious sauce. The beet salad was generously split in the kitchen. The martini was excellent and the wine pours generous. I'd go back for another chance to try something new.
We are new to the area, and this is our second time to Zesti. The food has generally been good; the wine selection is nice. The atmosphere is great except last night we had to eat in our jackets because it was so cold. That made the meal less pleasant. That said, we will be back.
Short Ribs and Rice were way too salty. No other flavors came through.
Service was very poor. He never cleared our appetizer plates, did not ask us if we wanted another drink and did not check in after our food was delivered.
We have been coming to Zesti/Il Mito for special occasions for many years, and this visit was, unfortunately, not up to our usual expectations. Starting with our reservation for Saturday being changed on Thursday by the restaurant, it just seemed that the little things we've grown to expect from this place were missing. The Hostess seemed almost annoyed that we arrived 15 minutes early. The young server was not very experienced. I ordered the lasagna (my FAVORITE!) and he never even offered to ask if I wanted grated parmesan. While I mentioned in the reservation that this was a birthday dinner, (my wife) not a word was said about it. The food was, however, good as always!! Hopefully the attention to detail that we have come to expect will return on our next visit.
Too noisy. Could not comfortably talk. Took forever to get bill. Food average. Temperature - uncomfortably cold. We live in the immediate area and do not intend to return.
Great server! Food excellent as always.
Great food, very pleasant team, but as always - noise control is challenging. Will continue to go back - thank you!!
as a regular for past 5 years. This is the first time the food was horrible.
Eggplant for appetizer was real good and great value. Had the stuffed pork chop; was really tasty. Wife had the seafood ravioli and was amazing. Luckily for me she’s a light eater so got to finish hers. Will be back to try some of the other entrees for sure!
Zesti’s is one of our favorite restaurants! Always great food and service.
Went for a friend’s birthday dinner. Good service and food. Will be back again.
Everything we ate was delicious. One of the all time best meals of my life. Order anything, they'll crush it. :-)
We had a very nice experience at Zesti on Tuesday night. Our waiter (who was quite busy) was very attentive and made our time there very nice. Our food came out quickly and was delicious. We will all definitely be back!
We've visited many times and never had a bad meal!
Excellent food and great atmosphere!
We always find something to love on the menu. The chef offers healthy choices, even gluten free for my brother. This is a real gem of a restaurant.
I had the ravioli. Outstanding!!
Everything about our dining experience was excellent, friendly bar tender, very good server, the type of seating that we like. I would call the restaurant interior "industrial", very nicely done.
The food: My wife had a salmon special that she said was the best she had in a long time. As for my Japanese style short ribs (Kobe), if a meal can be "off the charts" this one was. The roasted meat might be the most tender and juicy that I ever had. I don't make that statement lightly.
The best dining experience we have had since before the pandemic hit.
The food was excellent, and our server, Kayla, was outstanding. She made us feel comfortable and was very attentive.
Lovely birthday dinner with my daughter was made even more special by our server Kelly. Attentive but not over-solicitous, she treated my 11-yr.-old as professionally and cordially as she did her adult diners. The spaghetti bolognese and blue crab ravioli were delicious, and the tiramisu capped off the meal nicely. Wine list appeared to be fairly broad-range. Looking forward to another visit, maybe as a date night with my hubby!
Great atmosphere and excellent food. Eat indoors or out which is perfect with the current state of things. Love it.
The food and service were outstanding. The only negative of the evening was the noise level.
As always the food was fantastic, highly recommend the Zuppa! We'll be back :)
My family loves Zesti! Food and wine is always superb. Wait staff is polite and keeps us informed. Absolutely recommend.
My wife and Mother-In-Law ordered the duck, they said it was good, I ordered one of the personal pizza options. Ordered the gluten free crust with some sort of beef, the crust was not good, seems like it was not cooked enough (I have had many of this type of crust over the years. The meat was terrible, like rubber and full of gristle.....not even close to being enjoyable
Everything was amazing except the owner has a ridiculous policy of not having the checks spit with different receipts. It’s a weird policy that’s hard to explain. The owner is aware that his policy has had many complaints. Beware for large groups. The owner is just making it harder on the waiters and waitresses
Great food and service. Waitress was very attentive and pleasant.
Will definitely go back and sample Chef Fekkers other dishes.
One of our favorite restaurants in Lake Country!
Great food, wonderful atmosphere and fabulous servers!
Great find! Super atmosphere, service and the food was delicious.
Excellent food and service. The atmosphere was socially enjoyable. It's a very energetic and infectious ambience.
There were only two servers, from the looks of it. These two women were literally running to and from the kitchen to give the best service possible, while remaining positive, professional and friendly!!
Food, as always, was fantastic! We all had different meals and shared, all were EXCELLENT!
Open table asked me if I wanted standard bar or high top seating. I chose standard and ended up getting high top. It also asked me what our occasion was for dining. I said birthday but no one acknowledged it when we arrived so what's the point in asking? The staff was not as friendly as they were in the past. Our mushroom appetizer was not hot, my saffron rice that came with my salmon was cold and my salmon was slightly overcooked. We will be back in hopes that chef Fekker addresses the inconsistencies in the meantime. Lake Country needs good restaurants. I hope this stays one of them.
We were a party of three and we all enjoyed our food. Our waitress was very good and the staff was very friendly. The food was delicious. It was a little noisy.
Went to dinner with my wife, her best friend, and her best friend's husband. Service was great, the menu is so different, and the food was delicious. Our friends were really impressed.
The service was poor. Very, very slow service and very impersonal. The food was okay but it has fallen off over the past few years. This used to be our go-to place but now I don't see us going back anytime soon. Very disappointing.
Great food! great service! Had a street view table on a beautiful summer night!
