“Serious Italians at the helm here!”
Reviewed March 14, 2013

I will be back at this restaurant and soon. Although a small place, the authenticity of it was remarkable. From the Prosciutto slicer in the corner, to the Italian-speaking waiter, every whim was catered to, the food was outstanding, and the ambiance was fabulous. I enjoyed everything from the Mussels to my seafood pasta. YUMMMY!

With one notable exception we found that Silver Spoon offers excellent authentic Italian dishes with an emphasis on subtle, fresh flavors.We will definitely come again.
We started with two appetizers: The trio of pasta is not listed on the menu but is readily available. The pasta was fresh and delicious--flavorful but not drenched in sauce. A fried shrimp and calamari dish had a very delicate fried coating so the seafood flavor could shine through. A fresh squeeze of lemon is all that came with the fried seafood and was all that was needed.
For the entree, my husband ordered a seafood and artichoke pasta. Again, it was a light, flavorful, and delicious. I ordered the veal medallions at the waiter's recommendation. Unfortunately, whoever plated the dish put 1/4-cup of porcini cream sauce over the veal and the rest of the plate. Though it was a delicious sauce, it masked any other flavor on the plate and reduced the dish to a single note. No matter how how I tried to avoid some of the sauce, I could not taste the veal and the richness was very unappealing 1/2-way through the dish. Avoid this dish until they rethink it. It is one of the most expensive on the menu and obviously not one I can recommend.
Wines by the glass were reasonably priced and a nicely chosen. The service was attentive and knowledgeable. The decor is quaint and cozy European...in an American strip mall--a little odd but go with it. The sign for the restaurant is small and difficult to see; just know that Silver Spoon is a few doors down from Papa Joe's and literally underneath Fitness 19.

Great food and wonderful presentation. It's always a challenge to find a great Italian restaurant for my In-laws but this was one I knew wouldn't disappoint. Worth every penny.

“Outstanding Food”
Reviewed November 24, 2012

The prices are a little on the high side for the food & drinks served. Hard to find in the inside corner of a shopping center at Rochester Rd. & Teinken.
