The Silver Spoon often looks as if no one is there or it is not open. It is tucked into a corner of the shopping plaza of Papa Joe's market on Rochester Road at Tienken. There are other restaurants close by and in Rochester, but this is a hidden gem; a real find. This is comparable to great Italian food... More

Aside from the fabulous food, the environment and service are fantastic. Rito, the owner, treats you like family. Their antipasti della casa is the best. The burrata is to die for! They serve their house made limoncello in ice mold shot glasses, but so you don't freeze your fingers, they made metal holders out of antique spoons. My husband is... More

I travel all around the world and I am a big Italian food fan. I've never had anything comparable to the great European cantinas and trattorias until now. Rico delivers an authentic Italian experience with the amazing food, wine and ambience at Silver Spoon. You have to experience it.

Small, but so quaint, cozy and romantic. The staff: so friendly and accommodating. The food: Wow! Every time we dine there I'm never short of amazed. So delicious…Tucked away in the corner, it's a secret little foodie place. Shhhh! Love it! Be sure to make reservations!!!!! It fills up quickly. Well worth the wait…

Wonderful food, simply prepared with a good wine list. Service excellent without being obtrusive. Simple dressings (just like Italy) - well prepared and very fresh food. When we told the owner we were on our way to Florence and Rome, he had some good recommendations. Would certainly go again.

My girlfriends wanted to take me out for my 50th birthday and we decided on the Silver Spoon. I have a tremendous amount of food allergies that would land me in a hospital with an intubation tube in my throat in a heart beat. We felt that this nice little restaurant would be accomodating to someone like me as it... More

Made a reservation for a Saturday evening which is a must. Was recently in Rome and had spaghetti carbonara and loved it. Was hoping to find it on the menu, but no luck. Told the waiter about disappointment and he went to check with the chef who said he would make it for me. It was wonderful!!! Every bit as... More

A recent usual Saturday night dinner with my husband was quite nice. The restaurant was booked but a reservation was made for the bar. A place was set up ready for us upon arrival. The two bar tenders/wait staff were friendly, conversational, attentive and knowledgable about the menu. Our orders came out timely and hot and tasted wonderful. This was... More

This is a real gem, just don't have this type of digs in the south. The food is real Italian and the service is as fast or slow as you wish. As it is so good it gets real busy and loud as the night wears on. They have a band that is just not needed. As I traveled extensively... More
