what a wonderful experience we had at your restaurant! thanks to a referral from a friend, my husband and I had a Great Meal for my Birthday! the food was light, all the way from the rice balls & mozz sticks for an appetizer, thru the freshly made wedding soup, to the lightly breaded Sicilian steak I could cut with a fork, to the Birthday Cannoli for desert.

our waitress, CARRIE, along with the Owners Lee and Carmello, made our Experience the Best! a restaurant with Owners & Staff may Make or Break the Evening and you Definitely made ours Spectacular! thank you, thank you, our Pizza to go was gone the next day. cannt wait to try the other Specials!

Messina's is a terriic family-owned restaurant featuring Italian food/pizzas. Has a nice bar, outdoor seating area, and beautiful murals in the main dining area. Service is always good, as is the food. We live nearby, and have been dining here for years. The food is excellent. For those of you zipping up/down I-43, get off that freeway! Only a couple miles west on Hwy. 33.
Relaxe & enjoy a nice meal - you'll be happy you did.

If you need a break from all of the traffic, checkout Messina's Italian Restaurant in Saukville, WI. Conveniently located about 2 miles west of I-43, it's a wonderful place to stop for dinner on your way from Chicagoland or Milwaukee to Green Bay, Door County or Michigan's UP. Food is wonderfully authentic Italian. Nice selection of wines. Restaurant has a bar. Bring your appetite. Badgers love to eat well, and Messina's does not disappoint. Owner makes you feel right at home. Best to call ahead for reservations, as the locals are well pleased with the place, and often fill the restaurant quickly. Servers are very attentive. Beautiful murals on the wall remind you of a small village in Italy. Ample off-street parking in front. We stop for dinner here every time we're in the Port Washington area!

Finally, an Italian restaurant that serves authentic Italian food! I can't say enough good things about this place! We always feel welcome from the minute we walk in until we leave. The owner's are wonderful hosts and greet their guests as they arrive. It's obvious they take pride in their restaurant, and it should not be lost on their guests. Hand painted mural of small town Italy through out dining room, Crisp, clean linens on the tables. The bathrooms are even impressive. The food is homemade and wonderful starting with appetizers and ending with desserts. Portions are overwhelming, but no complaints on that! Service is always top notch! 5 stars!

Have always had a positive dining experience at Messina's. Service has always been wonderful, the atmosphere (i.e.decor) reminds us of Italy and their food is of exceptional quality. A little off the beaten track for us but we do go out of the way for the great Italian experience. And, of course, when we're in the area, we always stop.
