We spent a very pleasant evening here. The service was quick. We had plantain chips with a guacamole dip for an appetiser, followed by salmon or the Tuesday special of Ribs. All were very good, but the best thing was the mojitos which were really...More

I am a huge fan of Marta Bianchini and love what she's done with Cubanita's. This intimate space gets loud and fun, the bartenders are delightful and food/drink does not disappoint. We have used them for catering events several times and I'm always complemented on...More

My husband and I had never eaten in a Cuban-style restaurant before and we were looking forward to trying Cubanitas while in Milwaukee. I have had some Cuban specialties, like a Cuban sandwich and empanadas, but I was really looking forward to a 'total' experience....More

Great place for Mojitos and Cuban sandwich in Downtown Milwaukee. On a street with multiple restaurants and bars, so stop for a drink leaving options to eat at many different places within easy walking distance.

The servers were not the most attentive. The food lacks the flavor I am accustom to in Cuban food. However the cassava was great!
