Milwaukee - Great Italian on the Eastside?

I don't want to go to Barlotta's. Something mid to upscale & festive.

        I've been eating there since shortly after they opened and have never had a a meal less than excellent. Last time I was there I had a dish that was smoked salmon ravioli with a marscapone sauce and it was wonderful. They also have a rigatoni with prosciutto and mushroom that is quite good, and their carbonara is some of the best I have had anywhere. I am also particularly fond of their fried calamari appatizer, but calamari is a weakness of mine.

        They also have a fairly wide selection of wines available by the glass.
