The atmosphere is cozy. The owner is usually the one who greats you and takes you to your table. We go to Libiamos regularly and the owner remembers us which makes us fell part of the Italian family that owns and operates this restaurant.\r
I have to very, very strongly disagree with foodlover's comment. The food is delicious! The menu offers dishes you are unlikely to see somewhere else such as a spedini panini and Grandma's meat loaf (two kinds of cheeses and an excellent tomato sauce; moist and flavorful). The tiramisu is the BEST I have ever had, hands down. The service is always excellent.\r
Everyone I have taken to this restaurant or recommended this restaurant too has raved about it. If someone unfamiliar with Milwaukee restaurants and wants excellent italian food I always strongly recommend Libiamos.
Pros: Great food, great service, great value
