Ristorante Bartolotta - Wauwatosa
Wonderful restaurant; newly remodeled. Their 4-course regional Italian menu was extraordinary, loved every selection - pricing was very fair.
The food was perfectly prepared and delightful to eat.
What a great atmosphere! We sat outside in 40 degree weather and were perfectly comfortable with the heaters and blankets provided. The food was amazing as always along with the service. The staff went above and beyond to make it an enjoyable experience.
Beautifully done menu and very very comforting COVID precautions taken. Loved everything about our date night there!!
A chance to re-visit an old favorite reimagined in an era of COVID. They are serious about protecting the safety of diners and staff with masking rules and temps taken upon entry. The partitions between tables were beautifully executed and the dining room remained warm and inviting.
The four-course regionally inspired menu was incredible and the amount of food was perfect and represented a good value. Sure, did we miss the opportunity to reorder old favorites? Yes...but, the new menu allowed us to sample excellent dishes from the Piedmont region and enjoy a lovely Barolo. Embrace change! White truffles to compliment some dishes was a luxurious indulgence for sure!
Reimagined Ristorante, but the food and service was excellent as always.
Was a pleasant surprise. I had never had a Pre-fix (not sure I spelled that correctly) menu before and there were a few things on the menu that my husband and I would never consider normally. The meal was wonderful. It was quite pricy, but worth it.
Good was not good and badly overpriced.
Over the top with protection from Covid 19... wearing a mask every time a server comes to the table is cumbersome at best. The extra charges due to Covid 19 is a first of all the restaurants we go to. $16 for a glass of house Pinot Grigio is a bit much.
We’re not looking for an inexpensive meal by any means but the feeling that you were taken advantage of certainly rings true.
Incredible meal all around. Amazing service and very impressed with how they are handling COVID restrictions. My husband and I both felt truly transported to Italy. We are already looking forward to our next visit.
Great job flexing to covid friendly environment!!!!!!
Everything was wonderful as usual. Only bummer is with the Ever’s mandates on time, we couldn’t even stay after our dinner to order another drink and socialize. Really annoying.
Excellent service. Very knowledgeable and friendly staff. Food was incredible! Was my husband's and my first time in this area, so parking was a bit tricky, but we managed. Very beautiful location!
Excellent outdoor dining experience
I think we know the brand for doing things right. Once again, they are serving an inventive menu and great safe service during covid. We ate outside and felt 100% comfortable and probably the best meal since this all began. I am not sure if pricing is higher but everything appears more expensive in life right now. With that, high value was offered for the money.
Attractive outdoor setting with excellent service and food. Very covid compliant and comfortable with heaters if you need them. One of the best italian restaurants in Milwaukee.
As always, the food, service, and ambiance were exceptional. The marks the third time we’ve dined here during the COVID-19 pandemic, and the staff gets high marks for keeping the dining experience memorable yet safe.
food we got was way overpriced! We normally do not mind paying well for great food, but half of our dishes were underwhelming, especially their staple Tiramisu.
Great cold cuts and great Tortellini. But paying an extra $6.00 on top of the menu price for 10 meat filled tortellini is not necessary in my opinion.
Waiter was very friendly, but sometimes lacked in knowledge of the food and drink menu. My wife got two wrong appetizers before she got the right one. Small mistakes, but for the class/pricing on this restaurant it shouldn’t have happened.
We’ll be back to give them another chance!
To start, this is one of our favorite restaurants, love the food, wine, and intimate feel. We even got engaged here!
That being said, this was a disappointing experience all the way around.
We were seated at a table right by the entrance. The wind, cold air, and constant talking to people about having to wear masks right next to us ruined any dinner enjoyment. We’ve enjoyed several nice outdoor COVID-friendly fine dining experiences. This was not one of them.
Second - We are fine with limited menu, the food is always perfect here. But, again, not this night. The bread for the table came out ice cold, as did the butter. We could barely break it to eat it - so we didn’t. The water and wine took a while to get to our table - but after we ordered our 4 course choices, they were brought out so fast we could barely keep up. We just don’t eat that fast. The food was overall just OK. Butternut ravioli was incredible, but the rest was just OK, and some not served hot. The fish was inedible. I gave it two bites as a fair chance - but it was too fishy to eat and both times I had a bunch of fish bones to navigate. Coffee at the end was cold. Not a dinner on par with the bill - for sure! We’ll be waiting until they resume normal service to go back. Miss the duck - my fav!
First time we have been able to go to our favorite restaurant in Milwaukee since this miserable Pandemic. It was excellent, as usual! They take extra precautions with the virus which is much appreciated. My wife and I are foodies and admittedly quite picky, but once again the 4 course meal was outstanding! Hands down, the best restaurant in Milwaukee and that is saying something..
The outdoor accommodations, ambiance and food are just three reasons this restaurant is superb. Our waiter, Matt, was friendly, funny and always safe. I appreciate the smiling eyes of the staff and the incredible service.
Always perfectly prepared food! Excellent service and dining recommendations...thank you Patrick! A wonderful experience!
Quiet atmosphere, expertly prepared food and outstanding service. My wife and I had a wonderful evening. Thank you.
They did it right. I felt completely safe with the way they handled the CDC guidelines for social distancing, wearing masks. We ate outside, where they had heat lamps and handed out blankets for comfort. The food was excellent, the wait staff friendly and helpful. I love everything about it. I want to go back!!!
Probably the best Italian lunch I’ve ever had anywhere in the world. The service was impeccable in spite of all of the necessary Covid protocols and I look forward to returning many times in the future
Nice food, attentive but not overbearing service... overpriced in my opinion.
Got talked into $100 truffles and they were definitely not worth it.
$20 per glass for a Tuscan blend also seemed high.
My Dad said when things start seeming overpriced, you are getting old. Hmmm.
One of my all time favorites and one of the best restaurants in the Milwaukee area!
Meal was fantastic and the staff we very attentive. Overall I would recommend everyone to make it a point to try this restaurant.
staff was great about making outdoors dining comfortable even when it started to drizzle
The goat although good, tasted like a beef pot roast.
They made my dad's 81st birthday celebration very safe and enjoyable. The food was delicious and the service was outstanding. It was important that we felt comfortable eating outside (it was around 40 degrees) and we really did enjoy the surroundings.
food and service were fantastic. I really appreciate the safety precautions!
We love it. Everyone is nice and the foods omg outstanding.
it was ok - way overpriced. Some of the food was good and some was just ok - nothing outstanding.
When I was unable to get our usual Sanford's anniversary reservation on short notice, I felt lucky to get a reservation at Ristorante Bartolotta. My wife and I were seated at a table that should have actually embarrassed the management to offer. There was no light to see the menu, much less my beautiful wife on our anniversary, and my view was of an industrial cleaning device and the bathroom. The food tour of Sicily was not exactly their forte (though the duck was outstanding), which made me wish I married my wife a week later when the restaurant will be serving the cuisine of Rome. I enjoy the Bartolotta Restaurants and I understand why diners in Milwaukee take such pride in the level of excellence that one can usually count on there. I hope this was just a blip, though a very sizable one, and I wish it hadn't happened on my anniversary. Now I know to reserve Sanford's very early.
Our outdoor dining reminded us of years ago in New York. The food and service was amazing. Very Covid comfortable with masks and spacing.
Outdoor dining option worked well (for now).
We were happy to be able to visit one of our favorite restaurants again. Management did everything in their power to keep their patrons and staff safe. Although they had a limited menu, the food was outstanding as usual.
We enjoyed the Sicilian menu so much a couple weeks ago, that we decided to have it again, a few days before the new regional menu; glad we did. Highlights included the amberjack appetizer, ravioli first, mixed grill main (wow the lamb chop and pork rib), tiramisu and pistachio cream desserts. While we greatly miss the pre-pandemic staff, who understandably found new jobs during the shutdown, we are getting to know the new folks. Like their predecessors, their service is outstanding, and equally important make you feel welcome and at home.
What could be better? We are looking forward to the two remaining regional menus.
Our experience at Restorante Bartolotta was very good. They are especially careful in regard to Covid regulations going above and beyond. The service was great and food excellent. I don't think you can get a better inside restaurant experience. Also, their outdoor dining has heaters and diners can feel comfortable even in 40 degree weather.
Wait Staff and quality of food was outstanding. We dined outside on the patio and we’re very happy. One of the best meals we have ever had.
