    onesto is hands-down my favorite restaurant in Milwaukee. I've been there several times and it's never ever disappointed me. I went for my birthday this most recent visit and had my favorite summer seasonal dish the lobster ravioli. Delicious as always, thank you onesto staff for loving and caring about what you do!

    Food is not as good as it used to be:/ Tough meat, disappointing charcuterie selection. It seems like they are trying to cut prices, which we all get, but the food is suffering.

    We started with the warm mushroom salad. Oh MY!! Of course the bread is so wonderful (only recommendation would be to have some parmesan and pepper for the olive oil for dipping) We both ordered for our main course the lobster ravioli - all pasta is made in house - pasta and the sauces were EXCELLENT! And when we didn't think anything could top the salad and entree we went over the top with dessert - my friend ordered the tiramisu and I took our waiter's recommendation of the lemon blueberry cheesecake - made in house. My friend said the cheesecake was hands down the winner! It was unbelievably creamy and the combination of the blueberries and lemon - indescribably delicious. My friend was visiting from AZ and is already planning a return visit to go back to Onsetos.

    Hostess was terrible-obviously had no experience, incredibly rude and seated someone who had just walked in (no reservation) with the last table outside-when we said we would like to sit there. Then she refused to sit us in the window claiming that table is only for dinner dining. Our waitress however, and the food, was outstanding. The whole reason I go every time I am in MKE. Homemade pasta is incredible.

    Food quality doesn't seem to be what it was precovid...used to be our go to when in town. They were out of many standard items and bar choices were very limited as well. Halibut was over cooked and meatballs were dry.

    Calamari was raw. Cacio e Pepe was nothing like the actual dish and also raw and chewy. And they severed the pasta with our main course rather than as a mid. There is nothing Italian about this place other than the name. And nothing “honest” about it.

    I love Onesto and it is always wonderful. However, there was a private party/wedding upstairs and the noise was crazy from upstairs. Maybe something could be done to alleviate the noise from upstairs. Thank you.

    We chose to sit outside on a nice evening. Sharon took great care of us. The food was delicious and the wine selection was good. My husband and wanted some variety so we split the cacio e Pepe and the NY strip. We enjoyed both. Some feedback on a couple things I would change. I wouldn’t normally order a strip steak, but it was the only beef option. I’d rather see a filet on the menu. We sat next to a table with a small dog that barked every time another dog walked past on the sidewalk, which was numerous time. I am a dog lover, but this was pretty irritating. I’m not sure how you remedy this, but it really takes away from the relaxing atmosphere.

    We are regulars, probably coming about twice a month. We come because it is one of our favorite restaurants but today we were disappointed. It was my husband’s birthday. We made a note of that when we made our reservation and requested a high table by the window at an off time. When we arrived the table was available, but we were going to be seated elsewhere. We asked to be seated at the table we requested. We were then seated there. The food was excellent as always but we had to tell our waitress it was my husband’s birthday. We ordered a dessert and she wished him happy birthday. Meanwhile we saw her bringing another table a dessert with a candle. Do we need to bring our own candle? The last two times we were here the service was less than, which is sad. It’s harder to provide great food than great service. There was a time when it was hard to get in because the food was incredible. I fear the front of the house is the reason it is now easier to find a table now.

    The atmosphere of the restaurant was enjoyable and a reason to return. Calamari appetizer was excellent as was the bruschetta/ Salads were appropriately sized and very tasty. Freshly prepared pasta noted and appropriately cooked. However, the chicken piccata was not good, not much lemon taste and the chicken over cooked. Finally, hostess and waitress were outstanding but the young man serving the entrees had to be told to clear the salad and appetizer plates. This distracted significantly from the dining experience. We plan to return again with mild hesitation.

    Staff were kind enough to seat us early. Our waiter was rather brusque and seemed annoyed by us. Seating is not very generous. No n/a options for those who don’t drink but a full bourbon menu? Might have seemed cozier on a night when it wasn’t so crowded. Overall food was decent although no plant-based options.
