We've eaten here at least eight times in the past few years. Unfortunately, I thought that the fabulous experience we had there the first time was indicative of what we should always expect. Instead, the quality of the food has gone steadily downhill. The last...More

We had dinner again, after a long time, at the Pasta Tree. We had forgotten how romantic and "quiet" feeling the restaurant is. We had Osso Bucco and a pasta dish which were wonderful. The Tiramisu was excellent. The Manhattan cocktail was perfect. Best of...More

Had a fabulous meal at Pasta Tree! It's in an unassuming storefront on Milwaukee's lower east side. But inside, it reminded us of the delightful meals we had in Italy last August. They have a wonderful wine selection by the glass, including some Multepulcianos we...More

Do you (double) your pricing because of a holiday? We ordered off the regular menu; not the special list; and our soup doubled. What did I miss here? The menu stated ($7.00); and the bill was ($14.00.) 2x. Feeling bad about this....help!
