    Fantastic restaurant. Our waitress was wonderful , very knowledgeable and helpful with the menu. The decor and ambience are great. Above all, the food is amazing. We were a party of 4 and all ordered different items, and they were each delicious. This was our first time dining at Zarletti but will definitely be back.

    Our food was outstanding. It was a little slow to get our mains and dessert, but otherwise it was a fantastic experience!

    Excellent place for a dining experience to treat the pallete. Bar staff very knowledgeable on menu and friendly. It had a strong neighborhood vibe that was inviting. We'll be back!

    Zarletti continues to be my Wife's and I favorite place to have a special dinner together. Was there to celebrate my wife's retirement. Starters, drinks, main course, and dessert were all exquisite! Made reservations luckily as it was very busy. Only slight pause was that our waitress was a little quite and robotic. Perhaps she was new? A little chit-chat and personality would have been welcomed. However, minor detail and we will be return!

    I love Zarletti's. I think it's the best Italian restaurant in Milwaukee. The osso Bucco with gnocchi may be my favorite meal in all of Milwaukee, although the special marinated pork chop with mushrooms that I got to taste is serious competition. My only complaint is that it gets very noisy which makes me wonder why people must yell and loudly laugh in a restaurant - something they probably wouldn't do at home.

    As always, excellent food and cocktails. Monica, our server was superb. Only complaint is had a reservation for standard seating and they only had one of the hightops in the very small bar area. Not as romantic as regular tables.
