It was a very nice place to get a meal. The red sauce could use a little red wine and a bit of sugar to make it really good.

One of the best restaurants in Milwaukee. I have dines here many times over the years and in my opinion they are only getting better. Husband and were there last weekend and when we left spent our whole walk home talking about amazing g everything was. First the host was super friendly and welcoming, next stopped at bar and bartender was very friendly and took his time to recommended drinks he thought we would like after a quick chat. They were delish (I tried one of their negronis and was similar to and old fashioned just not as sweet). Bread was delish. Entrees so many delicious ones to choose from. Husband enjoyed that nights ragu special with pheasant and I loved the pistachio fish (that night was halibut) which was a wonderful delicate balance of cherry & pistachio and still made the halibut which was cooked to perfection the star of the dish. Our server was excellent the entire night and had recommended wine for our meals and also a banana dessert we probably would never have ordered but was so delicious we would go back for it! Every part of our dining experience from the moment we walked in to when we left was perfect. Fine Italian dining in a great atmosphere that is friendly and not stuffy. Recommend a reservation it was packed the whole time we were there.

The homemade daily special ravioli was excellent. The portion was really large so had to take half of it home for another meal (or darn). The dipping oil for the bread was very unique and again made right here in an original process. Finally had to have Banana Semi-freddo for dessert. WOW, it was awesome. You need to save room for dessert and you won't be disappointed. The homemade lemoncello is incredible too. Can't wait to get back to Milwaukee to go there again!

Four of us enjoyed complimentary glasses of Prosecco because two of us were celebrating an anniversary. The large menu makes choices difficult unless you arrive knowing that you crave Osso Bucco. In my case, the mashed potatoes with the Secundi entree were substituted with a smaller portion of another Primi entree. That was a good way to resolve some indecision. The house salad was nicely prepared and our respective choices were appreciated. The wine list is overly expensive and the noise level is high. If you're looking for a quiet corner to talk, this isn't the place. The general hype about it being one of the better restaurants in Milwaukee tends to jam the place. We will ask if there aren't some times when we can enjoy the ambiance.
