What You'll Get
Vintage Ferraris ran on a high-octane mixture of tomato sauce and parmesan, a savory blend that eventually turned petty car thieves into bona fide pasta barons. Get a baron's share of this desirable concoction with today's deal: for $15, you get $35 worth of fresh Italian fare at Sala Da Pranzo on Milwaukee's east side.
Featured on OnMilwaukee.com during its early-aughts inception, Sala Da Pranzo's dinner and lunch menus offer both contemporary and traditional Italian fare to fill the boot-shaped hole in Milwaukee's collective heart. Dinner diners get the chance to taste the ricotta-enhanced grandeur of the house specialty appetizer, the eggplant con pane ($11). Pastas like the saporito ($18.50), which tosses shrimp, tomato, basil, and garlic into the capable hands of fettuccini pasta, are available all day, and scene-stealing entrees such as the grilled salmon ($26) with chive cream sauce or the tenderloin porto vino ($34) shine like a strobe light covered in smaller strobe lights. For afternoon eaters, the veggie balsamic sub ($7.25) staves off narcolepsy with the time-tested jolt of mozzarella, tomato, onion, cucumber, lettuce, and balsamic vinaigrette.
Sala Da Pranzo matches its menu with a wine list featuring finely fermented reds and whites, plus domestic and imported beers. Great for stocking on up on pasta fuel for cross-country meets or long car trips to watch cross-country meets that take place on the floor of the Grand Canyon, Sala Da Pranzo's authentic Italian repasts offer nutritional and soul-sustaining sustenance.
Sala Da Pranzo is closed on Sundays.
- We finished off our meal with two espressos (thankfully not burnt as so often is the case in Milwaukee), passing up the sinful-looking tiramisu and cheesecake. There simply was no room left. – Bobby Tanzilo, OnMilwaukee.com
- I've had the best meal I had in a restaurant sea bass with a gorgeous caper sauce, sauted [sic] veggies & angel hair with their unbelivable [sic] red sauce. – Alice, Urbanspoon
- This is one of my favorite places on the East side, its cozy. – Nana H., Yelp
