Our service was very good, food was well prepared and quite tasty. My 10 year old boy finished his entire portion of lasagna. And my very picky 8 year old boy liked the spaghetti. Nothing whatsoever to complain about. Things have really turned around here.

We had reservations for a Saturday evening in May. It was busy, but not overwhelmingly so. Our server was very kind and knowledgeable. He did a great job checking in on us. I ordered the pomodoro and it was wonderful! Can't wait to go back...More

Classic Italian with a trendy twist. I was solo and glad as no distractions to a truly great dinner on a rainy night. Can't wait to get back to south Milwaukee again

Happy we made reservations because even on a Monday they became very crowded! We were celebrating a birthday - arrived in time for happy hour with reduced prices on beverages and appetizers which was great. Food was prepared perfect and enjoyed by all of us....More

A little pricy in area of wines, but entrees were prepared perfectly. We visited on a very busy Friday and service kept up. Pizza, spaghetti and meatballs, soups and salads were all made well with great ingredients. Will be back

Tenuta's is great! I used to live in the area surrounding Tenuta's and loved having this small restaurant just a few blocks away. My food was always great and I was always happy with the service at the tables and bar. It's a smaller restaurant,...More

...this is where you need to go to remember. So as a guy that deeply enjoys European dinning (been there, got the T-shirt...literally), Tenuta's takes me back to the Old Country. It has that close, intimate setting where the patrons in unison experience the ritual...More
