SALA, is described as a hidden Milwaukee gem, and is your place to enjoy our innovative culinary delights. Rooted in the Sicilian traditions our Chefs grew up with, we are here to share them with you, adding a little love to each dish. We invite you to our house for dinner tonight.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!

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

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.
