Well, I struggle with this one. First I have to tell you my grandmother came here from Sicily and mom cooked Sicilian, or at least like the region nana was from, so my expectations were a bit high. And, it was a special occasion so you can imagine my excitement heading in. Now, they advertise as "modern" Sicilian cooking so... More

Arrived for a 6:15 reservation and at 7:15 were told that one of the specials that we ordered was no longer available. When they sat us we weren't given menus, given 1 after a little while and then they gave us a total of three menus for our party of four and said that was all they had. Local art... More

Casual spot with tasty italian specialties. The eggplant appetizer, four cheese ravioli and diva mare are all top notch!

I have had the pleasure of dining at Sala a few times in the last few years and it has never disappointed. The atmosphere is "nice but casual" and I always feel comfortable. This is the type of place that you can come as you are - jeans or dressy - it doesn't matter. The menu is classic Sicilian -... More

Even though I work at UWM, I haven't been to this restaurant in ages. Went there recently with some colleagues. Nice decor and peaceful atmosphere. We were there mid-afternoon when there were very few people. Service was good and friendly. I did not like my panini. Too many greens in it and dry. The salad was good. No desire to... More

Stopped in for lunch while making a trip to UWM for work. Very conveniently located to campus. I had a pasta dish, the tomato,basil, garlic; colleagues had panini's. We all enjoyed our food. Mine was made with gluten free pasta. One of the better GF pastas i have experienced. The service was extremely slow. Seated right away, but took forever... More

This restaurant is close to my house and a great go to place. Really good value, consistent food and very friendly service. I never ordered their pizza until my last time there and I'm sorry I waited so long, it was very good.

Had a gift certificate, otherwise would never have known this restaurant existed. Decided to do take out and ordered the salmon, fettucini, chicken parm, meatballs, olive tapenade, bruscheta, eggplant..quite the variety so that we could try many things (and have leftovers!). Everything was good. The eggplant exceptional; olive tapenade rich and salty--perfect. Will be back again to dine in next... More

My husband and I shared a crab cake appetizer, salad and the best duck entree I've ever had. Our server was attentive and offered suggestions for wine which we appreciated greatly. The atmosphere is relaxed, welcoming and conducive to conversation. There are items on the menu for all budgets, with specials offered regularly.

This is the first place that i've found in Milwaukee that makes delicious lemon drops you have no idea how good they are, you must try. Also their garlic bread is delicious, spaghetti and meat ball is so good as well. If you are able to squeeze in a bit more try the Lamb Chops :)
