Amazing authentic and expensive
Like stepping into Italy, truly wonderful food and service. Be aware it is very expensive for regular dining, but worth a special occasion.

Best meal I have had in a long time. Service was unbelieveable - not too friendly. I will definitely return when in NYC. This was my fourth trip to NYC and this will be the first restaurant to make the "must repeat" list. Lobster gnocchi was unreal. LOVE the half portion option!

A great place for people watching
A great place for people watching in the heart of the Village. The speciality items on the menu are creative and unusual. Perhaps the most Italian of the New York Italian restaurants. I go somewhat regularly (when I am in a position to splurge---the prices! !) so I get a good table and excellent service.

Grazie Da Silvano!
After a movie at the Film Forum, this was a perfect spot for dinner for four. Fast, attentive service, good preparations of the classic Italian dishes and a tolerable noise level. The wine list could have more selections at the bottom end.

misrepresentation= big rip off
I ordered a glass of Gavi for $15. It was good and I had a second glass. After a delicious dinner I paid my bill without double checking each item - I know - a big mistake. When I reviewed the receipt the following day I noticed that I had been charged $26.50 per each glass of wine. I called to see why the price was so much higher. The person I spoke to said that the Gavi di Gavi was $26.50 per glass ( this wine wasn't even listed on the wines by the glass menu) and that the Gavi was $15 per glass. I said I had ordered the Gavi, but basically it was too late because I didn't notice it that night. I was charged a higher fee for something I didn't order. Beware when ordering at Da Silvano - check your bill carefully before paying.

Fun and great for people watching, but my husband had to pay $20 to get a good table.

I love Da'Silvano from the wonderful owner to every single dish! I have been there many times. They have made a special pasta for me--something the owner thought I would like. The gnocchi is mouth watering. There is such an authentic, extensive and interesting menu with daily specials Love the outside dining where you can feel the neighborhood. The staff is attentive without being intrusive. Great value for amazing food. I come to New York once or twice a year and always make sure one dinner is here!

Food is equivalent to being in Italy. Never disappoints. Waiters do have a bit of an attitude but food makes it worth putting up with.

Best Italian Resturant in New York
My husband and I truly enjoyed the entire dining experience with greetings from Da Salvino himself to the wonderful staff with great passion for the dining experience . The prawns and lobster over linguine with the light tomatoe that I would love to have the recipe . It is my favorite Resturant in New York City!!!

The food was amazing, but the service was on the mediocre side.

first time in new york
i brought my son to nyc for his first trip to nyc as part of a college visit trip. Da Silvano has always been my favorite neighborhood restaurant and i wanted him to like it. He loved it; every part of it - the food, the friendly service, the ambience; the whole experience from start to finish. It once more established Da Silvano as my favorite place in NYC.

Took my wife to Da Silvano for her birthday. Sat outside at a two-top, and enjoyed watching the world hustle by on a mid-summer evening along energetic Sixth Avenue. Service was attentive, and not overbearing. We ordered a few glasses of wine, and took our time ordering. Shared an appetizer and salad - each terrific. We both ordered pasta, and were very pleased with our selections. I had mentioned in my Open Table reservation that it was my wife's birthday. Well, after dinner, our waiter and several of his colleagues presented my wife a complimentary dessert (with a lit candle) and sang happy birthday. I hadn't said a word upon arrival; yet, management was on top of it! A wonderfully memorable evening!

Da Silvano scores big!
Found this gem on the New York Times website. Food was great and service was unbelievable. We were made to feel like family and loved the interaction with the staff. Great location and would definitely go back.

True, old world Italian experience
Great food, great service, great atmosphere. A MUST for anyone looking for true Italian charm. Brought back memories of eating in Venice a few years ago.

Food was delicious. I had the Bolongese and it was excellent!

Among a lot of restaurant in the area. Da sivano is really a good spot for chilled out and have a good time with your friends and family.
Mr silvano himself was very friendly.

Top Marks to Di Silvano!
Wow, What an awesome recomemndation from the concierge at the Renaissance Hotel 57. The food, service, wine was all outstanding. When my wife and I couldn't make up our minds on dishes, the waiter graciously offered to bring us halves of each. Great meal and a fabulous outdoor location on a lovely summer night in Greenwich Village! Recommended wholeheartedly!

Good food, hot scene
I got lucky with terrific weather when I went to NYC. I also got lucky to get an outdoor table. The hosts are are fun and friendly, server not so much. I do notice that I sometimes get worse service when I am alone. I guess the servers think the tab will be low and therefore the tip will be. OK, but I enjoyed my meal. I has some delicious prosciutto and melon. Really great. I got a half order of tag bolognese, which was good. Not the best I ever had but I enjoyed my meal at Da Silvano. Very lively crowd.

It had been quite a few years
It had been quite a few years since eating at Da Silvano, and it did not disappoint. Great food, great service, best tripe alla fiorentina, and best for people watching. With the varied clientele, and the village at your feet, it is a fun experience. And with the huge menu and specials each day, it is a place to return to many times.

DA SILVANO RESTAURANT ITALIEN 100%
Le Da silvano est un restaurant où le professionnalisme et la convivialité sont de mise ; des plats excellents avec des desserts comme la crème brulée ou le fondant chocolat délicieux ; une ambiance formidable , restaurant idéalement situé dans un quartier tranquille , je le recommande vivement ;

Another Diamond in the Rough
Wandering the SOHO area or just Cyberspace? If you love Tuscan food and atmosphere, there is a highly authentic and reasonably priced option right between West Village and SOHO on 6th. Da Silvano was charming, friendly, and just right on the palette and the budget. Especially good pastas and some very fresh ingredients all around made it a real treat. And with about half a dozen real Italians (not the NYC kind), it was an Italophiles dream.

absolutely delicious and love meeting and talking to Mr. Silvano.

the day was gorgeous and we were able to dine outside and everything ordered was top of the line
in taste, presentation and preparation
great staff and owner very engaged and welcoming
highly recommend and look forward to visiting again

I went to Da Silvano with my partner and we really enjoyed dinner there. Particularly the service was super friendly and fast. The food was very good but not special for Italian standards.
9/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
lovely food, lovely staff
We had made a reservation which was a very good idea, esp. for Saturday night. Lots of people wanted to get into the restaurant and had to wait outside for a table. The first night we liked it so much that we decided to come again the following night. The staff are super friendly plus very attentive.

Good Italian food .. Nice ambiance ... Highly recommended

I am a regular here. Love the Red Snapper, the carpacio, the bread, beet and endive salad. The waiters are attentive and full of humor.

Food is equal to being in Italy
All the food is prepared exactly the same way as being in Italy. One of our favorites, pasta is cooked to perfection,

While the food is completely servicable, the ambiance is the real draw here. Great spot on a lively section of Sixth Ave! Sit outside. Watch the perfect cross-section of New York stroll by. Enjoy...

I cannot say enough about dinner at Da Silvano. It was wonderful in every way.
10/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
Extremely welcoming, busy restaurant
Prompt attention and seating. Staff courteous and friendly
Simple dressed salad starter with cheese was beautifully presented and very tasty.
The pasta dish with sea urchin and quail egg was delicious and of a good sized portion. The recommended wine was divine.
The dessert was also excellent.
The small family-run restaurant made us feel as if we were dining as family guests in a very relaxed environment.
Service level was very high, and the personal attention afforded was top class.

I spotted Chef Mario Battali dining here several weeks before, so I had to check the place out for myself.Staff was warm and friendly. Our Italian host was so charming! Great location, not too crowded, and very attentive staff. My pasta foccacia was excellent. I had my three year old with me, and the staff were very accommodating
11/9/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great experience in Greenwich
What a good surprise to be friendly welcomed and taste fine dishes, ravioli and a famous ossobucco: great!

Best Dinner EVER
Start to finish, the best dinner I had in NYC. From the greeting right when we walk in the door from Mr. Silvano, to the outstanding waiter service. We allowed them to suggest meals and bring them to us......seriously Outstanding!

Sunday Lunch at Da Silvano's
The staff are very friendly and warm. The food was delicious and the staff recommendations were all right on. It was the first real cold day and the year and we felt so warm and protected enjoying our lunch inside. Most of our choices were from the Daily Specials-zuchini blossoms, Oxtail Stew with polenta, rabbit stew, lamb with mashed-there was not a drop left on anyones plate!!
11/23/2013 4:00:00 PM
Not out first time dining at DiSavino, and it won't be our last. Although we always try new restaurants, whenever we visit the city we always try to fit in lunch or dinner at this wonderful restaurant....It's always excellent.
11/30/2013 4:00:00 PM
We had a group of 7 and were seated at a round table, which I love. It's holiday time , our table was located by the window where we could view the Xmas lights. The service was fantastic and with between all of us I think we had a good sampling of the menu which everyone enjoyed. The atmosphere is warm and friendly. However I do think their wine list is a bit overpriced.
