City Tins Restaurant Review – Sala Italian Restaurant

City Tins Restaurant Review – Sala Italian Restaurant (


Made the short trek to Sala, a neighborhood Italian restaurant across the street from UWM. It is on a side street and I would not have known about it without City Tins.

Inside looks like a neighborhood place – bar area, about 10-12 tables in the dining area, eclectically decorated with local artists’ paintings. As we walked in, there was a family sitting outside. It was a bit too chilly for us to dine al fresco, but the sidewalk tables seem to fit right into the neighborhood feel of the restaurant.

Service was efficient and friendly, exactly what you would expect from this neighborhood place. We had a couple of drinks, and ordered the Grilled Prosciutto Wrapped Asparagus, with Boursin sauce.  I could have been happy with just the grilled asparagus & prosciutto. The Boursin sauce was a bit heavy for this dish but sheepishly will admit we ate the entire appetizer.

We chose two entrées – the “Sugo” which is the family recipe tomato & basil sauce over angel hair with artichoke hearts & Kalamata olives and the chef’s special tagliatelle with shrimp, oil & garlic. Both were well prepared, more than adequate portions and overall good examples of the cooking at Sala.


They have a nice Pizza menu also. I was taken with the Mon-Fri Happy hour beer prices of $1 for domestics and $2 for imports & craft beer.

All in all, a good time, good food, at reasonable prices, and a new eatery to return to, thanks to our City Tins subscription.
