Three of us had a pleasant Sunday night dinner at Tenuta's and what a great discorvery this was. The food was excellent, the wine list was great and the atmosphere perfect. With soft background music like Sinatra and Glen Miller playing, we felt like we had stepped into a movie scene. Our server was fun and knew when to appear.... More

What a quaint little restaurant tucked into a neighborhood in Milwaukee. We chose this restaurant based on its proximity to the Alchemist Theater and we were not disappointed. We had reservations for 6 and although running late (and we called) they held our table for us. Their suggested red wine was superb and everyone's meal was excellent. Two of the... More

Visited Tenuta's for the first time recently and really liked it! Nice warm, pub-type atmosphere and great service. You have to try the pizzas which are delicious and varied in ingredients. Will definitely eat there again.

I gave this a try after reading other reviews. One of my party ordered an 'appetizer pizza' which the waiter said was a 'small plate'. There was no other description. It was enough to feed 2 people for dinner and contained food that he did not like. There was no offer to return it, so we picked at it, but... More

I was told about the different crusts from the bartender and I went for the one just above thin crust the bartender described it as a crust they let rise. So I ordered and when I got home much to my surprise it was thick as texas toast and was lite on the cheese and sauce. The dough was left... More

Fan-fregging-tastic. Amazing service, great atmosphere, and high quality food with chefs who care. This place tops my favorite place in Milwaukee.

This is a very charming place. We had a nice table in the back for two. The place was very crowded and the service was good. The food was good. Both our entrees were good, not great. I would recommend this restaurant for a place to have a nice meal.

My wife and I visited Tenuta's on her arrival to Milwaukee (it's very easy to get there from the nearby airport) and loved it. We loved the quaint neighborhood, local vibes, and the excellent service - it seemed our waitress and servers were truly excited to share their cuisine and proud of what they deliver. The dishes were consistently good... More

They really care! 2nd or 3rd generation family run restaurant in residential neighborhood with outstanding food and service. Ravioli di funghi (mushrooms, spinach, etc). in excellent sauce and veal parmagiana were excellent. Large portions of food and generous drinks. Waitress knowledgeable and attentive. Casual, comfortable atmosphere. If you are visiting Milwaukee, have dinner here one night and Coquette's the second... More
