SALA is committed to providing outstanding, fresh food through an independently owned, family oriented, local business. Our menu features a diverse selection of pasta dishes, choices for the carnivore and seafood lover. Our daily Specials feature exquisitely prepared dishes that feature seasonal favorites.
With a focus on fresh, local produce, we feature many items from our large summer garden near Holy Hill and Chef Anthony harvests basil, oregano, rosemary and thyme from our greenhouse here on Hampshire Street. We use many locally sourced ingredients from local vendors in our dishes to keep the menu as fresh as possible. Anthony and sister Teresa opened this neighborhood restaurant in 2001.

Lovely decor, good menu with a nice variety of choices and reasonable prices. Service on this visit, and always, is impeccable. Special thanks to Tiff who was most informative about menu items and specials and was always quick to check on everything. SALA is a great place for celebrations, quiet meals, or family dinners-out.
Everything was wonderful
The goat cheese starter in sauce was really wonderful. The caprese salad was a little disappointing. The tomatoes weren't great and the presentation was just ordinary. The meatball in sauce was very good but the price for one meatball is too much at 7 dollars. That was a little shocking. We did enjoy the evening there very much though. Best restaurant in the UWM area.
We go to Sala fairly often. We are never disappointed.
I love this place
The food is great. The service is excellent and our waitress (Sophia) was fabulous
Love SALA and have been going there for years and years. Our food and waitress was wonderful. My only complaint is that it's very loud in the restaurant. Maybe some noise dampening acoustics would be in order. But it's a great gem.
Great food! Bryn treated us well. This is our anniversary restaurant.
Excellent food and service. Customer service was great
Always a great meal. One of my favorite restaurants in Milwaukee.
We always have a great time at Sala and Saturday was no exception! It's a great place for date night and our waitress (Bella) was outstanding!
Very yummy secret gem on the East Side! We ate there on a Saturday Night and our food came out hot and quick! Would definitely recommend!
We always enjoy dining at Sala. The food is always delicious and it's such a cute restaurant. On this particular evening, we had a superb waiter who made our meal even more enjoyable.
SALA siimply n
I love coming here for special occasions. Great food, service, and drinks!
We love Sala and eat there often. But it was not at its best when our party of four dined there Tuesday. The server gave the Oregon pinot noir I had ordered to another person in our party, while I got the Italian red wine she had ordered. When the appetizer we had ordered to share wasn't appearing, we asked the server about it. She went to check, and came back to tell us that the ticket never got to the kitchen. We eventually got the appetizer, but not at an ideal time. The other three people in the party really liked their good, but the chicken marsala I got was subpar. The dish was served at room temperature, the sauce was much thicker than usual, and the angel hair pasta on which the chicken rested was one big clump that couldn't be separated.
I think Sala just had a bad night. My wife and I eat there dozens of times each year because it's local (and locally owned) and because the food and service typically are outstanding. Anyone who reads this should give Sala a try.
Awesome! Gorgeous space excellent service fantastic food very comfortable great wine list everything superb!
Friendly , welcoming atmosphere with creative twists on familiar standards as well as innovative choices unique to SALA. It’s always a satisfying and fun experience to have a meal at SALA.
So love our Family and Friends’ go to restaurant. Warm, relaxing and fabulous Italian (and my Grandmother was from Italy!!-she’d love it too!) only wish the large pizza size would come back!
Great food- caring service, friendly, lively atmosphere. The food tastes like sophisticated home cooking. Everything is fresh and delicious. Servers are attentive. It feels like everyone is in a good mood. It's a very enjoyable place to have dinner.
All together a very nice experience. Food was fresh and very good. We will return for authentic Sicilian food.
Great food & service! Our group of 5 had to be at an event at a certain time, and the staff were very accommodating to our rushed schedule. I'm looking forward to going back!
My Mother's Day meal 😊 The pasta here is so flavorful and the sauce is light, not poured on. My husband had boullianaise (spelling?) and was apprehensive because he doesn't like things all mixed up, but finished it in record time. We don't get here often enough but it's always so enjoyable! Thanks for a special mom's day!
Sala is always wonderful. My daughters took me for Mom's Day a long time ago and it has remained a very special place to me. Any time we have out of town visitors we take them to Sala. It is always a treat. The food and service are wonderful.
The food was excellent - fresh, wonderful variety of choices and beautiful presentation. The service was very good overall but our server was so quick to move on to her next task that several times she left while we were mid-sentence into asking a question. The atmosphere is warm and inviting. The accoustics are not the best, the noise level with a full restaurant made it a bit hard to hear the person sitting directly across from me. However, the overall experience was good and I will definitely continue to be a repeat customer.
Lively atmosphere, creative menu, very interesting pizza menu on the order of Pizza Man and California pizza kitchen. We both had pizza but we can’t wait to go back and try some of their traditional Italian entrées
Great start to our 35th year of marriage. We loved everything and will be coming back.
The food is authentic, when so much Italian food is not. Lovely Caesar salad very lightly dressed, not swimming in gooey dressing. Fish and shellfish treated well, and homemade pasta and sauces are great.
The service was great and so was the food. I recommend reservations.
Outstanding customer service, setting and dining experience. Extremely good value and not far from Downtown or the Lake. Highly recommended.
Lovely intimate restaurant. Nicely priced win list, can get a bottle of good red for $26. Home made Italian food, fresh salads and soups served with Sciortino’s fresh bread.
Sala - Best Italian/Sicilian outside of Italy itself.
Service was poor & slow. We had a reservation for 6:30 & didn’t get seated until after 7. The 2 people in the bar ignored all the customers waiting to order drinks while they worked on a bill at the cash register. The hostess finally took our drink order. Waitress was good but food was also slow. She said she was bringing bread but never did so we sat without anything until our salads came. We have been here a couple times with the same slow service. The food is very good. Would be a great place if they improved their service. Seems they need better staffing at the bar & in the kitchen during busy times.
I eat here all the time and am never disappointed. I recently had the Halibut special and it was excellent. I loved that the halibut special was served on grilled vegetable.
Everything about Sala is wonderful. From the atmosphere to the service to the delicious food, the Sala experience is a very big treat.
Great restaurant ! I will be back to try the rest of the menu. Looks a little dumpy from the outside. But on the inside is great. I love small restaurants with good food ! I will let more people know about this place.
We made our reservation before my husband had back surgery that necessitates the use of a cane. When we arrived at 5:45 he asked to sit in a booth because they’re padded and the chairs are not. We were told the booths are 4 top and since we were 3 people we were at a 3 top. I noticed a stack of cushions by the door and asked if we could use one. After we weren’t seated, a party of 3 was seated at one of the booths.
Before we left I pointed out what happened and asked why we were not accommodated since none of the booths were filled when we arrived. The response was the party of 3 possibly requested a booth when they made the reservation and we did not (we didn’t know about them or remember we needed to bring a cushion)
All of the entreaties we ordered were good. Large portions so we were able to take some home. We were visiting friends in Milwaukee. We came up from the Chicago are.
Food is outstanding. Took a couple who haven't been before and they loved it.
The food here is SPECTACULAR! We came at a busier hour, so it was pretty noisy, but totally worth it for the food. We’ve eaten at multiple Italian places and nowhere comes close to this!
Excellent service and great food. We didn't have to wait long for anything. Great location.
