    First time here. Was recommended by some friends and we were not disappointed. Make a reservation, for 6pm and got in right away. We were the only customers at that time, and a few other tables filled up later. The waitress (Jada)did a great job of getting us seated and settled in. Gave us plenty of information about the menu and specials. Got the special Pesto Sea Bass which was amazing. Service was efficient, but we did not feel rushed. The rest of the meal was all very good. We will be back.

    Food was great. The butterscotch budino was amazing. Also had the pork belly and it was so good. We had the fish fry and it was quite good. Service was a bit slow so I gave them a 4 star on that

    We had a wonderful evening meal out on their quaint patio. The food and service were excellent. Don’t miss the fresh loaf of bread….and don’t make the mistake of only getting half a loaf! Tess is a Milwaukee gem.

    Definitely go enjoy a meal here. $$/$$$ prices but portions were fulfilling. We wanted to try somewhere new and we’re headed for Original but saw the patio across the street and glad we changed plans. Service was so PLEASANT and the outdoor space was really cute. Food was some of the best I’ve had in Milwaukee. Steak in the mushroom and wine reduction was so good I asked for more bread (also delicious) to sop up the leftover juices. My friend got the ravioli and I stole a couple extra bites from his plate. Honorable mention goes to the neighborhood setting of the location. Vibe and atmosphere was perfect for casual conversations/small celebrations/nice meal with old friends/date night.

    Definitely A hidden spot on the east side. The cioppino was out of this world! Mussels were super fresh, sauces were absolutely delish. We also shared a well put together Mediterranean salad with a citrus vinaigrette. Not to mention the flourless chocolate cake and butterscotch pudding was the highlight of my day. 10/10 would recommend especially those with gluten allergies the waitress and cook was super accommodating! they also have a very good wine list!
