We have a hard time finding a place to eat in Milwaukee after a Sunday performance.This has been a real find. Good Italian food. Feels cozy but it has a lot of room. Excellent service.

Very nice and comfortable dining in a relaxing area, with soft lighting. Was greeted friendly and genuine. We went with out of town guests from the east coast. The food was excellent. We had Lasagna, Lamb Chop, Asparagus Penne and Crab Legs. Our guest said it was the BEST Crab Legs she has ever had. Every dinner was made to... More

I travel a lot for business across the country. Visit big cities and prefer to try family owned businesses and not franchises with the same old stuff. Felt as I was stepping into Italy with beautiful music playing, greeted at the door like a celebrity. I ordered the barley soup, lamb with rice and an awesome made pear martini. I... More

We were coming to Milwaukee to visit. The first place my wife wanted to go was Catarina's. The food and service are excellent. Having lived in Milwaukee most of my adult life, I ate there numerous times and I have never been disappointed, neither has my wife who has only been there six times. It is family wined and operated.... More

This is a small, family owned Italian restaurant that has been around for decades. The service is very good, but I think the food is not worth the price. The food is reasonably good, but it's not OMG "lick the plate clean" outstanding, and I think it is priced too high for what you get on your plate. My wife... More

When we have a special occasion Catrina's is our favorite restaurant. We are always greeted with a friendly smile from Tony the bartender/owner. The restaurant is small and not kid friendly but when adults want to have a special delicious dinner...call for a reservation. The appetizer plate every table gets is a nice way to start off the evening. Hot... More

My husband and I made a reservation for New Years Eve, and to be honest, we were not expecting much as New Years Eve ANYWHERE is know for slow service, huge crowds, sub par food which was NOT the case here at all! Service was nothing short of outstanding! Super efficient and friendly wait staff, and the food, seriously spectacular!... More

My wife and I enjoyed another wonderful meal and experience at Caterina's. Eating at the bar is always our preference. Tony takes great care of his patrons. Polite, personable, and attentive. The antipasto tray to begin is always solid, as is the hot bread. The Steer Filet prepared Sicilian style is outstanding. Tender and flavorful . For Classic Italian food,... More
