The food is superb. The service was OK. Overly attentive when not needed and then gone when we did.
Everything was delicious. Well Done Onesto.
Great pasta. Had the small gnocchi with spinach..delightful.
Sauce was outstanding.
Sort of cozy ambiance, hip place and vibe.
What’s not to like?
Nice dining experience.
We had a great time. We took patio dining and it was fun people watching while we visited and dined. Our food was amazing from bread, salad, entrees and desert. I had sangria which was a treat. Service was wonderful. Highly recommend a try.
We've really enjoyed our meals. Food and service were great. I had a seat where the sun was in my eyes. Otherwise everything was great. Good variety for menu
Emme was excellent and was great!!!
I had the mussels only a few weeks ago but I think the recipe changed and they added meat to the broth -I preferred it without. Onesto is always a good choice
As always, the food and the wine were superb. Our server was very friendly, knowlegable, and attentive.
The portions are not overwhelmingly huge, which is appreciated, but they seemed unusually small compared to other past visits.
All in all, we will return and enjoy our meals there.
Portions too small for price. Not for a hearty eater.
So appreciate the unparalleled customer service here! They seated us earlier and accommodated us having another drop in guest despite being very busy. Food and drinks were excellent, we will definitely be back!
Food was amazing! And service was wonderful! Wish it had been a bit warmer in the room (everyone was putting on jackets ha), but overall was a wonderful date night ☺️
Excellent service and delicious meal!
After three visits to Onesto over 7 or so years, this was the best experience!
Calamari appetizer overcooked and extremely rubbery. Our red wine was served warm. Had to wait 15 minutes to be seated despite reservation. Our table was poorly spaced and out of compliance with city of Milwaukee’s Covid rules. Main entrees very good and our waiter was excellent. Overall an inconsistent performance by a restaurant that has done better in the past.
Recommend the warm mushroom salad and lobster ravioli.
Service was fabulous.
Classic Italian. Beautifully executed. Nice short wine list—the Cab Franc was quite good. Excellent service—didn’t feel rushed at all.
I was throwing a surprise murder mystery dinner for my friend's birthday. The staff was extremely accommodating and helpful! It was a fantastic experience!
Food was really good. Pasta dishes were great, scallop fish was high quality but not a great value. Server was very rushed. Very drop-and-go. Made the whole experience feel a little off-kilter.
The food was excellent although portions on the pasta dishes are quite small. Perfect size for the lighter eaters at the table but hearty appetites may want to order an appetizer and salad with their pasta. Other than that everything was excellent.
The Lobster Ravioli is amazing!
Great service and wonderful food. Highly recommended!
I moved to MKE in the fall. Onesto has become my go-to spot for quality food. Love it.
Great spot. Food was excellent..service matched...
We have eaten at Onesto dozens of times before....this time my pasta boulanaisse was TERRIBLE. The first plate arrived and I could not find the sauce on the pasta. It was basically a bowl of pasta with a couple of pieces of meat on top. I sent this back, because if Covid rules, was told that the chef had to give me a whole new order. The second pasta entre came back slightly better.......still NOTHING like the boulanaisse that I have had at Onesto many times before . Very disappointing.
The pasta dishes have gone up 5$. That’s a giant hike.
Ty was an excellent server! I look forward to having him again!!!
Great place with awesome food and nice ambience
The eggplant was not seasoned at all and grossly over cooked. The service was horrid. Our main course came out before the soup plates were cleared. Then once the main plates were placed next to the empty soup plate, our waitress started to walk away.
We sat outside, service was fast yet I never felt rushed. My wife said her entre was awesome and my meal was exactly what I wanted and not to much food. We will go back.
Hightop dining for 6 including two 9 year olds. The meals were fabulous, service excellent and the social distancing arrangements were reassuring. This was an excellent place for an early lunch on the weekend.
Don't even know how to describe the food here to do it justice! Started out with the Honey Roasted Bruschetta and Fig, Toasted Walnut and Gorgonzola jar (basically fig jam with walnuts and gorgonzola to spread on bread) and they were both so yummy. And I say this as a non Gorgonzola fan. Then my daughter had the meatballs and pasta while I had a spinach gnocchetti with prosciutto cream sauce and sun dried tomatoes and it was such a wonderful flavor combo. You could tell the pasta was home made, just so soft and fluffy. Didn't really have room for dessert but we had to try the creme brûlée cheesecake with basil simple syrup and it was worth the food coma! Staff was attentive and restaurant was safe and welcoming. I would definitely drive up from Chicagoland to eat here again and again and again
The ambiance and food were wonderful. Having been at Onesto multiple times already and 1st time since COVID, my wife and I were very pleased with our experience. The only draw back was the server not seeing and recognizing the reason for my reservation - celebrating my wife's birthday which was the same day we dined at the restaurant. I noted it as a comment in my Open Table reservation, but it was not mentioned at all by the server. Was disappointed. I thought to mention it to the server, but decided it would have been a lost cause. There was only ONE other couple dining at the time, so it was not busy at all. It should have been noticed. Despite this, it will not deter me from going back, just to bring it to the server's or host's attention if this happens again.
I shared the luscious tomato mussels, which even as an appetizer was ample for two, and the wild mushroom salad which was savory and unique. The Spanish Albariño was an ideal pairing - crisp and delicious! The service was attentive and table spacing met COVID standards. It was the perfect lunch!
Wonderful food in a very cool atmosphere. Wish I wouldn’t have shared my food -we will definitely be back.
Easy to find, a wonderful-looking building, and everything about the place was phenomenal. Sure it may be pricy to some, but it is worth every penny. The Fusilli and Moscato were delectable. Our server, Andrea, was magnificent and should get a raise and/or promotion immediately.
Great food and service. Would go again and recommend to friends.
Not your run-of-the-mill Italian. Unique dishes full of flavor. Small portions. Friendly, efficient, staff.
Daughters birthday. Food was very good as was the service. Felt safe as all staff did a great job implementing Covid protocol. Enjoyed very much.
