Caterina’s: Milwaukee’s Place for Veal
When in the mood for veal, one restaurant always comes to mind: Caterina’s Ristorante (9104 W. Oklahoma Ave.). Entrees include chicken, steak, lamb, pork and seafood, but the prime attraction remains the veal, which is offered in six different preparations. The veal Marsala is so good, with sliced mushrooms and a wine sauce that is not too sweet; veal piccata adds tartness with lemon and tiny capers; and veal francaise has a thin egg batter. The dining room offers a casual, garden-like feel. The seating is a tad crowded, but it’s a small price to pay for food of this quality. Caterina’s is also open for weekday and Saturday lunches, when entree prices are quite a bit lower.
