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.

Sala always delivers, one of our favorite places. Never had anything but a wonderful meal here. Servers come and go, so some are excellent and some are average. The owner is always gracious. The atmosphere keeps us coming back as well -- it really is like a big dining room, warm, beautifully decorated and chic without being overly fancy or trendy. Highly recommend you try it!
We celebrated our 35th wedding anniversary at Sala, it is one of our favorite restaurants. We like it because we feel like we are in someone's home where extra attention is given to the food that they serve. We had the Shrimp Da Mare, two Chicken Parmesan and the special Pasta Shrimp special. All were really enjoyed. We had a great wine with our dinner, it was a Foxglove Cab. We finished off with a tiramisu and a cheesecake. We all commented on the way home, how good a time we had at Sala.
The Saturday night Bolognese and Seafood Pasta were both fantastic! Great vibrant Saturday night crowd. Full of energy.
Great location and excellent food! Don't be fooled by the facade, this place is worth stepping inside.

Wilbur and the food was wonderful.
We were greeted welcomingly. The ambience was divine, warm and cozy. Our food was perfect. We ordered the salmon and chicken marsala. We were so happy to have leftovers the next day. Our server was attentive and pleasant. We will be back soon!
Have loved Sala for 20 years! Blessed to live in the neighborhood and just walk to our favorite restaurant!!
Excellent. Great place! The food was delicious. The service was excellent. Nice atmosphere.
Absolutely amazing place for valentine’s dinner! I’ll definitely be back
This was our first visit and we couldn’t believe we hadn’t tried this out sooner. Scallops appetizer, beet salad, and seafood specials were all wonderful.
Thank you for joining us at SALA. Your comments are much appreciated and we look forward to serving you again.
Great Valentine’s Day venue!
Love the sugo with olives and artichokes. Tiramisu is stellar as well.
JJ, thank you for joining us at SALA, We appreciate your comments and look forward to seeing you again.
Adorbale, Warm and Cozy neighborhood feel. Very good cocktails. The shrimp, scallop, lobster ravioli in a red cream sauce with red pepper flakes was exceptional!
Linda, thank you for joining us at SALA and for your comments.
One of our favorite neighborhood spots, but service this time was slow and poor and the food was not up to their typical standards.
We hope you will join us again and we will look forward to staying on your favorites list with our best service and food.
First-rate food in a warm, charming atmosphere. My fish and risotto were both perfectly cooked.
What a great place for lunch and dinner!
Love it.... but very time. Family favorite. Never had a bad meal here!
This is a restaurant you can recommend to others and be confident about the quality of the food and service. AND it hasthe best minestrone in town!
We went to Sala with some good friends and we had a great dinner. Sala has gotten to be one of our favorite places to go. We had the special artichoke appetizer and it was one of the best we have ever had. The grilled flavor was incredibly good. Two of us had the special Shrimp pasta dish, it was really good and I would order it again. My wife had Sugo and a side of vegetables and our neighbor had Bolognese that they both loved. We had great service and Paige did a great job as busy as they were. We really enjoyed our dinner.
Ryan was terrific and informative as our server! Teresa is the ultimate hostess, seeing to every detail for the customer:))
We go to Sala a lot and had the best time last Friday night. Our server Bella did an excellent job and our food was done to perfection. We tried a new red wine that they had a Cab blend that was really good. My salmon was spot on as was seafood stew, eggplant and Aribiata. Great little place that we enjoy going to for a good Italian dinner. We weren’t the only ones enjoying Sala, it was busy.
Always enjoy our visits to Sala! Everyone we’ve introduced to Sala’s wants to return.
Just a delightful local gem!
Very good food. There was an issue with our reservation so it took awhile to get food, but they bought us dessert to help rectify the error.
The restaurant is truly outstanding. There is not a bad choice on the menu. We have brought people who have never been and they just rave.
Very busy new years eve --food and servics was excellent. Owners,chef, and staff are to be commended
New Years Eve. Had an early dinner. Great value. Sausage and pasta outstanding, meatballs and angel hair pasta ok. Appetizer of baked goat cheese fantastic. Took home two desserts which were also good - cheesecake and chocolate cake. Wine list was good. Atmosphere fantastic- old style Italian feel. Not close to where we live, but will make a point to return.

Love the ambiance of this place, no matter what time of year. Warm, cozy, comfortable lighting, Great food and excellent service. It is my favorite restaurant.
Great food, I have never been disappointed.
Nice ambience, never loud, easy to converse.
I like going there to have a delicious, relaxing dinner.
A charming venue with a feel of family and upscale bistro. Interesting entrees make your decision difficult.
We went to SALA for our office Christmas dinner-EVERYTHING was AMAZING!!!! We ALL LOVED IT!
The food, the service, everything was excellent. It's a treasure tucked away in Milwaukee's east side.
This is our favorite Italian restaurant of all time! We like the chicken parmesan and alfredo. We never order anything else because those are so good. The place is normally busy so Open Table has helped us get reservations so we never have to wait. Highly recommend this restaurant!
This was our first visit to the restaurant and we had a wonderful experience. Our server was very attentive and helpful with the menu choices we made! We will definitely be back even though it is a 50 minute drive from our home. LN
We have been dining at Sala for many years and have never been disappointed. It is truly a "hidden gem", we bring friends who have lived in the area all their lives and have never been there. Last Friday night we dined with relatives from Kenosha who raved about the food, too. And the hostess ran down the street after me when I left my credit card on the table with bill...great personnel, service and food...we will be back many more times.........Brookfield residents
Such a cozy. pleasant place! Sala is a perfect spot for dinner with friends. Fine food and colorful decor sure to engage appetites and ideas
SALA would have received a full 5 stars if the service people had been a bit more attentive ~
It was a crowded Saturday evening, so perhaps that is why ~
Two people ordered Arabiatta, which they loved, another very much enjoyed her Parmesan chicken, and my Salmon was to die for! Looking forward to ordering it again on a weeknight!!
My main course was big bowl of delicious pasta, but with only 2 small shrimps and 2 small scallops. Very disappointing. Not on a par with what you get at other restaurants.
