We went on a double date. The food was really delicious. The service was outstanding. Chef/owner was friendly and came and greeted us, asking us about the food and suggesting options. Tiny restaurant but great atmosphere. Make a reservation and note they don’t serve lunch.

We are not from the area and Silvo's was recommended by the car dealer where we bought our car. It was one of the best Italian dinners that weve had in a very long time. The broccoli and risotto were by far the best that...More
