We were celebrating New Year’s Eve! We LOVE Pasta Tree. Everything was great except for a spat our waitress was having with her co-workers about her tips. We shared that the conversation was inappropriate for customers to overhear.!Other than that, we had a great time, as usual. More...

We took our family there for New Year’s Eve dinner. We we the only ones there as we went early before the rush and yet getting our dishes cleared to a few queue to different staff. When our water was refilled the person (not our server) would reach over us and pour splashing on us and our dishes. The food was great as always but service was a bit under par More...

Love this place. We had a great time. It was a bit noisy, but on a Saturday night, you kind of expect that. Everyone enjoyed their food and took home boxes for the next day's meal. Our waitress was VERY busy, but also very attentive. Our entries came quite quickly, but we never felt rushed. More...

I have always loved Pasta Tree, one of my go to places down on the East side. Very worth the drive from the suburbs. It is looking a bit tired so hopefully they can find the money to get new carpet, etc, but I'll go regardless!

Great server who offered a variety of wine suggestions when our preferred option was not available. Server was patient, informative and professional but the only one on for the whole restaurant! She did a great job, but perhaps a second server would be helpful to assist. Loved the ambiance! We tried the beet salad and it was robust with flavor. Also tried to entrees (a butternut squash ravioli and a ricotta type dish with lamb, believe). I will return to share experience with more friends (this was my first time, my friend who joined me had been there previously). More...

We had a great time here! We are from out of town and the pasta was delicious. The wine selection was wonderful & the staff was very welcoming. Loved the bread too!The only thing was they appeared understaffed as the host was also the waiter to every table in the restaurant, the bartender and the bus person. He was a one man show! We felt bad so we didn’t want to ask him to do one more thing but he was super nice and as attentive as he could be given his many roles!Great restaurant! Would definitely go back if we are in town again, More...

The food and service were excellent. It’s a nice hole in the wall to speak and we enjoyed the take the chef had on traditional dishes. Also, it was extremely inexpensive (under a 100) when getting an appetizer, a main dish, and four glasses of wine. Even if we got a dessert to share, it still would have been under 100. More...

The bearded greeter was dressed like he was going to clean the garage with a sports hat on. He should have had on a dress shirt with a tie and no hat. This was inappropriate for the initial experience of entering one of Milwaukee's finest restaurants. The little blond waitress was awesome as was the food, the chairs, drinks and quiet recorded jazz being played. We will be back again. Loved it. Thank you for a fine experience. More...

Pasta tree has a fabulous menu. We hadn't been there in more than 5 years. I noticed the decor needs an update. The vintage chairs at the tables are starting to be old and rickety. The chair I had was actually wobbly. Areas of the wall were in serious need of new painting (there was a painted pipe that was literally peeling paint). The food is always great, but the restaurant needs a complete refresh in terms of decor. We will still go back, but offering gentle suggestion to improve this restaurant. More...

Great pasta options. Delicious!! For those who prefer meat with the pasta, the options are minimal. So if you're looking for meat with pasta on the side, such as veal parmesan, you'll need to dine elsewhere.

We felt welcomed from the moment we walked in. The food was incredible. We both had one of the specials. I had butternut squash ravioli in brown butter sage sauce and my boyfriend had the scallop special. My boyfriend and I agreed that the butternut squash ravioli was INCREDIBLE. Then we had tiramisu for dessert which they confirmed was home made. It was also INCREDIBLE. More...

The stuffed squash flowers which were perfectly done, tender and moist inside and crispy outside. The sauce was flavorful, but did not override the squash flowers. The shrimp linguine was done perfectly, as well, with a lovely garlicky flavor and plenty of parmesan on top. Service was attentive and friendly. The beer list, sadly, is mostly low end lighter beers. A selection of local craft beers would be very welcome and appreciated. More...

We had a very nice dinner. We ate in the 'secret garden'. The tag team servers were very attentive and the food was good as well. My husband would have a preferred a larger portion of his mahi mahi, he ended up eating 1/2 of my carbonara. The tables and chairs in the garden are made for small, short people, so by the time he tried to stand up, his knees were a little stiff. The young couple next to us had the same issue. Overall, it was a good dinner, but the seating left a lot to be desired. More...

Had a great meal at the Pasta Tree. Food was excellent. Had the Gorgonzola Alfredo, which was great. Service was very good, but I was surprised how quiet the restaurant was. It was a holiday weekend with Summerfest going on, and it was a little later, but we were almost alone. Still I would highly recommend The Pasta Tree. More...
