MILWAUKEE (WITI) — Milwaukee’s Licenses Committee on Thursday, May 14th agreed to approve the renewal application of Tutto Promotions with the agreement that changes be made to the operation of the establishment.  Under the new agreement, Tutto’s restaurant will change and become Giovanni’s.  Also the current nightclub on the second floor, Notte Nite Lounge, will become the new home for the Comedy Café. Both new businesses will open soon.

This past winter, there were nearly a dozen incidents tied to the Notte Night Lounge, including a shooting.

Neighbors were getting fed up, and now, the building is being revamped.

“From November and December to March, a lot of things happened. I mean, a lot. So we’re shutting down the nightclub. And we’re opening up, re-opening Giovanni’s again — a nationally recognized restaurant. And we’re bringing the Comedy Cafe, where it is right now on Brady Street, and putting it where the nightclub used to be,” attorney Mike Maistelman said.

Giovanni’s Restaurant would open sometime in the coming months.

Comedy Cafe is expected to open on July 16th.

    This article needs to be retracted. An apology may be needed. From the headline to the story, it was littered with errors. Knowing the family, the business (Tutto) has changed direction and not closing due to complaints. There were no licensing issues as you stated in the first release. These are people’s livelihood and its jeopardized by your careless report. Damaged control has begun due to customers are wondering if their catering reservations are cancelled and have to move to a different venue. Tutto is not closing. They are changing concept to their original restaurant “Giovanni’s” and not because of neighbor’s complaints or licensing issues.

    Tutto will remain open through the summer season until Giovanni’s concept is secured and remodeling is ready to begin.
