Uncle Sal’s Italian Restauranti & Bar

Visited 16 June, 2016.

Our most recent visit was for lunch, all other visits have been for dinner.

We opted to share the beefsteak salad. This was a well-balanced combination of thickly sliced tomatoes, thinly sliced red onions, and generous chunks of good blue cheese dressed with Italian dressing. The garlic bread supplied complemented the salad. Since we began with salad, we chose the soup of the day instead of salad to accompany our main courses. The potato pesto soup was also very nice; the flavor was excellent but the texture was a bit uneven.

J chose his favorite, spaghetti and meatballs. The meatballs are a nice blend of meats with a firm meaty texture in a thick rich tomato gravy served over expertly cooked spaghetti. I would prefer a bit less gravy to spaghetti myself but both J and C claim it is an excellent dish. I chose my favorite, veal Milanese. It is a lightly breaded crisply fried thin filet of veal in a luscious lemon butter sauce. The veal is always accompanied by sautéed baby green beans and onions.

The iced tea is good here and J finds the beer choices adequate. They have some very nice Chianti as well.

Service is pretty good but there are occasional long waits.

The bad. The noise level can be annoying when it is caused by an employee with a loud piercing voice constantly yelling across the restaurant to communicate with other employees. It was exacerbated by a customer having very loud long cell phone conversations almost constantly.

I am likely to return but if this type of noise is recurrent I might have to write this one off.
