They have a relatively large food menu in the bar for happy hour which is not your typical wings, nachos and finger foods. They offer smaller portions of entrees like a single pork chop, strip steak and butterfly shrimp which all come with one side...More

Made a reservation for 5 people. We were sat, on the patio, 15 minutes early. The dinner menu is authentic Italian and hard to choose which item to order (which means several repeat visits would be worth it). I ordered the tortellini, while friends ordered...More

Went early to be able to get seating...with reservations. Party of six. Excellent service and excellent meal at a reasonable price. If you like veal try any of the veal dishes.

My spouse had the rack of lamb Marala and shared a taste with me--wow! The rack was pre-cut and still came out medium rare and so extra tasty. I had salmon that was done perfectly and was seasoned and needed no additives. Service was great...More

More upscale yet excellent food. It is worth spending the money especially for special occasions. The staff is very helpful with suggestions.

Great service and setting and I had the Veal Cutlet Milanese 7 straight times. Off the charts. Crunchy, dripping with butter and lemon sauce on a bed on home make spaghetti and green beans. Getting hungry just thinking about it. The Short Ribs on fettuccine...More

Excellent! You wouldn't think much of the place as you drive by as it is in a strip mall, but once inside....Mama Mia! Make sure you have reservations.....this place is a local favorite and fills up fast. The Lasagna is great.....also try the Chicken Parmesan.

We had a very good pizza at Uncle Sal's but if you are in a hurry, you better not go there. We arrived and ordered at 12:30 and the pizza wasn't brought to the table until 1:20. The server brought 2 pieces of garlic bread...More

Hi John, I was born and raised a few blocks from the strip mall where "Uncle Sal's is. I left my hometown years ago and return rarely as my " West most western town " is long gone. Sammy use to hang out at the original Eli's and I would occasionally have a drink with him. He knew I was a native kid from original Scottsdale, who's mom grew up in Lindinhurst. He loved my stories and though his past is dark he was very honest about keeping his crimes within the "family". I was shocked when he decided to manufacture and deal X. I wish he would have set a better example for his son who also went down.. Okay, thought I would give you a tidbit from my old , gone hometown.. and btw,, u don't have a clue who still owns Uncle Sals.. the folklore of the past continues..
