The rapid growth of the Village in Wauwatosa over the past few years has been a boon to local businesses and residents alike, and beginning this week, it’ll be easier than ever to park in the village and enjoy its many offerings.

Visitors to Wauwatosa will now have the option to valet park their car and walk to their nearby destination every night of the week beginning at 5 p.m., thanks to a partnership between Ristorante Bartolotta, the Wauwatosa Business Improvement District (BID) and Parking Company of America.

The valet stand will be located just outside Ristorante Bartolotta at the corner of State St. and Harwood Avenue. The service is open to anyone visiting Wauwatosa, and the cost is $7 per car.

“We’ve been looking for a way to make access to our restaurant as easy as possible,” said Juan Urbieta, Executive Chef at Ristorante Bartolotta.  “We’re excited about this new partnership, and we hope that our fellow local businesses and visitors to the village will all benefit greatly from it.”

Jim Plaisted, Executive Director of the Wauwatosa BID, added “We applaud the initiative to introduce valet parking for our customers and visitors to the Wauwatosa Village. We continue to be a regional destination for shopping and entertainment and the service will only enhance the experience of coming to the Village."
