Italian in Milwaukee

I need recommendations for an Italian restaurant in the Milwaukee metro area. Other cuisines are also welcome; we've already done Chinese, fish-fry and Irish pub. Thanks

    I like Bartolotta's in Wauwatosa:

      The Italian light is dimmed in Milwaukee since the original Al Calderone Club on the east side closed. But The Calderone Club on Pt Washington Road in Fox Point is pretty good if you are in the North Shore area. On the west side, Balistreri's on Bluemound is probably the best bet, and Mimma's on Brady St if you are on the east side.

        Thanks for the replies. I will have to poll my traveling mates
        before deciding on our destination. Or we could try them ALL!
