“Worth the drive.”
Reviewed March 20, 2012

Silva's is a bit outside of town in a rural atmosphere. It is well worth the drive. The friendly staff and owners are attentive to your every need and the food is excellent. Silva's has a full bar and a reasonably priced wine line. The food selections are varied and change with the seasons. They do have a children's menu also. Food prices may be a bit on the high side, but acceptable.

“Awesome Food”
Reviewed November 23, 2011

My family and I finally tried this place after hearing about it for over 20 years. We were very impressed with the food. The calamari was extremely fresh and very lightly breaded and fried with a great aioli dipping sauce. It was the best calimari we have had, and we try a lot of calamari! We also got the mushroom caps in the garlic, butter, and brandy and it was just perfect, especially using the fresh baked bread to dip in the delicious sauce. My husband got the Portuguese bean soup and it was very flavorful with lots of fresh herbs. My husband and dad got the roasted chicken, and loved the flavor and the texture of the chicken--very moist with a crispy skin which had been dry rubbed with herbs. I got the skirt steak--it was very tender with a great flavor from the terriyaki marinade. The portions here are just right (not too big, and not too small) and you can tell everything here is homemade. I would not come here if you are under time constraints as they do take their time bringing you each course. We enjoyed the leisurely pace as you don't feel rushed and can really enjoy the meal. Our waitress Christy was very friendly. We will definitely try it again since it is just a hop, skip, and a jump from the hussle and bustle of Elk Grove.
