Danny Sollenne is proud to announce the arrival of Sally Dee's Steak and Chop House within the environs of this pleasant restaurant. "This is a unique concept," declares Sollenne, "where a sophisticated steak and chop house has a specially appointed area within a fine Italian restaurant." Everyone wins with this beautiful marriage of fine food, wine and great service.
Sally Dee is a legendary entertainer who performs at Sarabella every Tuesday and Friday with his "Sounds of Sinatra". His world class steaks and chops include a 24-ounce Porterhouse that looks good enough to eat raw, and the 16-ounce NY Angus strip will make your mouth water and the prices are lower than some famous steak restaurants. Tender veal chops, French cut lamb chops and double cut pork chops are all cooked to order and served with creamed spinach, house salad, mashed potatoes or home fries. Diners may choose a traditional steak dinner in the specially designated area of Sarabella, or for those who want dishes from both menus you can choose a comfortable table in the spacious dining room that holds 145 people.

Artichokes are a harbinger of spring and we enjoyed a tender one, stuffed with savory bread crumbs, seasonings and garlic. As we peeled away to the heart, we munched on crisp bruschetta and slices of cured salami, provolone and olives. Our professional waiter described specials of the evening which included veal shank osso buco. The tender meat on this massive shank surrendered easily from the bone, releasing its savory juices onto the bed of toothsome risotto below. Freshly made ravioli were stuffed with eggplant and topped with plump shrimp and baby asparagus in a light sauce of garlic and oil. Red snapper fillet was prepared Mediterranean style with a touch of tomato, onion and black olives. Another tempting dish combined chicken medallions with cognac sauce, accompanied by creamy mashed potatoes and sautéed spinach.
The menu covers all your favorite pasta dishes such as linguine with clam sauce or juicy shrimp. Pappardelle with rich mushroom sauce or house made lasagna are also popular choices. Chicken or veal Marsala or Francese are all fork-tender and mouth watering, served with roasted potatoes and fresh vegetables. Wednesday is Lobster Night and one can enjoy a one and a half pound lobster with three pastas and a glass of wine for just $28.95. If you prefer to eat light, try a crunchy Caesar salad topped with either grilled chicken, salmon, shrimp or tuna. Crispy crust individual pizzas are available as well, with your choice of toppings. These are popular for lunch or for dinner with the kids.
Sarabella provides expert catering for your private affair. There is a private party room on the lower level which is an ideal venue for a rehearsal dinner, graduation, anniversary or business function. Choose your menu and leave the rest to the expert staff.
