We read about Mike LaSusa's on TripAdvisor and are so thankful for that otherwise being from Racine, we would not have known about it. We pass through Oak Creek often, using Howell Ave. but this place is very easy to locate from Hwy. 32 to E. Ryan Rd., then to 5th Ave. It's in a neighborhood and many of the best places with great food are!
Upon arriving we commented on the outdoor front porch patio, it would be nice to sit there with a cocktail during the summer. The restaurant is spotless with two small dinning areas and a bar, very basic but serves the purpose.....delicious Italian food!
My husband and I had the Tomato Basil Soup which was creamy, nicely seasoned and topped with Italian croutons, it was awesome! Then he had the Meatball Bomber and I the Eggplant Roll Ups which consists of spinach rolled in thinly-sliced eggplant, baked and topped with Mozzarella. We both enjoyed our choices. Mine was recommended by Kevin, a member of the family who was waiter and bartender that day. He was right-on with this! It reminded me of my mother's baked eggplant (but actually better!) My sweet tooth was begging for desert so I opted for the Almond Cream Cake, it was soooo good!
We would definitely recommend this place and can't wait to try more! I'm Sicilian and know my sauces and their Marinara is the best I've tasted! Mangia, Mangia at Mike LaSusa's! This is the authentic thing here folks, not the chain restaurants!
