About IL Mito Enoteca
"IL MITO Enoteca was born from my passion for a local restaurant comparable to those I frequented in Italy - a comfortable home away from home, where you can sip a great glass of wine, complemented by an incredible, rustic Italian cuisine.
The Cuisine of an Enoteca is the simplest of Italian cuisines, made with the freshest, highest-quality ingredients that create amazing, complex rustic flavor combinations. Our Enoteca Style menu features homemade pastas, insalati (salads) Piatti Piccoli (small plates), Formaggi (cheeses), Bruschetta, Pizza and Secondi Rustica. It was created so that you may have a big meal with friends and family, or a light snack with your wine.
We at IL MITO Enoteca are grateful for your interest in our passion for food, friends, and life. We look forward to serving you soon and getting you addicted to an unforgettable experience!"

IL Mito Enoteca Ratings and Reviews

I love going to Il Mito for its gluten free options, including pasta. My wife thought the Tiramisu was the "best ever". Food is great, and Chef Feker himself came out to the dining room to make sure we enjoyed our meal.

Had a wonderful time enjoying great food and wine on a busy Saturday evening. The linguine and sea bass specials were especially notable. Louise provided a special touch with his friendly and knowledgeable service. Kudos to Louise, Chef Fekker and the entire staff and kitchen crew. I look forward to my next visit!

Nice ambiance. Staff very friendly and accommodating but the food was disappointing. My guest and I both ordered a seafood special that was tasteless. We sent our dishes back and there was some improvement but nothing I would recommend or order again.

Il Mito Enoteca is a local favorite for us. The restaurant is on the smaller side which makes the dining experience more personal and friendly. The team of cooks and wait staff do an excellent job of tending to your every need. If you are gluten intolerant, this restaurant has great selections for you to choose from. Always a great night out at Il Mito's on North Avenue in Wauwatosa.

This is the most incredible restaurant in the Milwaukee area. The service is absolutely top notch and the food is fresh, local, unique and delicious! My husband and I recommend Il Mito to everyone who asks for a great local restaurant.

Successful casual fine dining restaurant built on reputation of chef Michael Felker. Reliable interesting food. Casual atmosphere, down to the spontaneous strolling songster doing some opera and Italian favorites. Seating arrangement just a bit crowded for a really intimate evening, but just fine for most occasions.

Waiter was very knowledgeable and personable but very slow. It took a long time for him to get us drinks and to take our order. Also the Air Conditioning was on and it was VERY cold in there. I saw multiple customers complain.

Great service. The food was wonderful. Everything was timely on a busy Saturday night. We sat at a table under an A/C duct that dripped on us. We moved the table slightly to avoid getting wet. Other than that...very good!!
The service and food were excellent, but ...
The service and food were excellent, but I've never been a fan of the industrial or warehouse style decor, and our table had a strong chilly breeze from the air ducts. Would I go again? Probably not. There are some other really good Italian restaurants in MKE where the atmosphere is more to my liking. It's worth at least one visit to see if you like it.
Very disappointed. The veal was NOT Marc ...
Very disappointed. The veal was NOT Marcella and terribly overcooked and the linguini seafood special was essentially under sauced and under seasoned. We have been there in the past and it gets worse. There will not be a return trip.

Wonderful place with great food. Quick service, even though they were very busy and very packed. Would like a little more room, but not a bad experience by any means. I'd call it cosy. I have really no complaints at all, and those that I might are simply explained away by how understandablely busy they were. Great spot, no I am glad I went.
A friend was in from out of state and I ...
A friend was in from out of state and I drove her across town to enjoy lunch at Il Mito. We both enjoyed their spaghetti bolognese as it's always been my favorite dish (due to chef's family recipe). The sauce was great, as ever, with a slightly spicy back end. However, the pasta was not properly drained and about 1/2" of water pooled at the bottom. This diluted the sauce and made for messy eats. Absolutely a first for this restaurant; food has never failed to be anything other than perfect. Yes, I (we) could have sent it back to the kitchen. We were hungry enough to eat it as it was.
Service was appropriately attentive but our server was a tad sloppy. Grated Parmesan hit the table, and the napkin in my lap, about as often as it hit the pasta. Plates, and bowls, hit our table so that the soup, for example, splashed up the rim. Not terrible, but pointing it out for improvement.
I've no doubt tweaks will be made by this restaurant.

The food was great as always on a busy saturday night. Our seating request for a quiet table was honored, and our waiter was attentive and yet not overbearing, very professional yet with Italian charm! Perfect place and ambiance for our little engagement that night. We definitely will be back - and we will sign up for cooking classes after having had dinner in the show kitchen! Thank You Il Mito!!

Had dinner at Il Mito and was very pleased. Laid back atmosphere with great Italian food. Had the Charcuterie/Cheese plate, as an appetizer, which was great since they let you choose your 3 cheeses from a very good selection. Attentive service.

We were checked in right away and seated promptly. The restaurant has very nice atmosphere ( low lighting and candles on table. The waiter was friendly and helpful. I had the salad misto and it was fine (nicely dressed not too much to it). Then I had the linguini with seafood. It had a wonderful array of seafood. The sauce was nice compliment to seafood (it was not overpowering a little on light side). My daughter had fettuccini and felt it needed more sauce - more flavor) Overall a nice experience

Il Mito is a favorite. I'm a fan of the gnocchi and rabbit, but the new sauce is watery and the arugula doesn't make sense. Bring back the old recipe..please! The roasted radish salad seemed to be missing something compared to last time ordered...I'm wondering if the kitchen was a bit overwhelmed, as service was also a bit slow...the place was hopping.

We love Il Mito. Really, our only criticism is that the wine list does not stand up to the amazing food that is served. There are quite a few wines out there that are exceptional and less than $20/bottle. We'd love to see some of those featured (even on a rotational basis). With Chef Feker being from Argentina, for example, the Tempranillo/Malbec blend by Urban Uco would be an awesome addition. Or, on the white front, something like Kitchen Sink (though it is domestic). We will continue to come back, but please don't be offended if/when we bring our own bottle or don't purchase wine at all.

I have read all of the great reviews, but am sad to say we did not have a great dining experience. Neither our food nor our service were very good. Our server seemed to be much slower than others around us, however. During our 2 1/2 hours there (it took that long just for 1-course, we didn't have dessert) people at tables around us came and went.
We ordered drinks, which never came. When we reminded our server, he brought one of the four drinks we had ordered.
I ordered the spaghetti bolognese, which was simply a bowl of spaghetti with a hint of spaghetti sauce, and traces of meat.
All in all, it was a very disappointing experience.
