The restaurant was CLOSED. didn't give us any warning or notice that it had closed down. We went all the way there and had to find somewhere else to eat last minute. Very bad.
We had reservations for 12/21 but the place closed that afternoon. Too bad, we always enjoyed dining there. We wish the management all the best in resolving their problems.
I'm going to miss those guys.
New York experience , go with your emergency wallet and your lowest expectations ever and you are assured to have a good time
Awesome authentic Italian food. Excellent service and very reasonable pricing. We will definitely come back and dine again!
Owner dominated positive attitude. Very friendly, nothing impossible. Too many guests stress the kitchen and food average. Great ambiance but noisy patrons
The owner, Sil is always involved. He cares, and oversees things very carefully. That is one key to this great restaurant.
We arrived early fir our reservation and were taken to a table without actually checking our name. The table was jammed next to the overcrowded coat rack. I spent the night having to move or getting wacked in the head while I was eating by moving coats. We asked to be moved to no avail.
The rapine and sausage was good as was the carpaccio. Not great but good.
The penne sauteed with lamb sauce("baked all day until incredibly tender ") had three tiny pieces of lamb the size of a small finger nail and there was no sauce. Just almost dry pasta with dried sauce flavour.
The taglierini had sauce and was good, not great but exceptional compared to the penne.
When we received bread which we had to request, it was received after the appetizers and the requested olive oil was plunked on the table after we finished the entire meal and the bread plates removed.
We requested water without ice 3 times before we received it midway through the meal.
The 4 oz serving of cabernet was decent but nit $16 glass of 4 oz wine in such a mediocre venue.
Da Silvano is a favorite neighborhood gem that always lives up to my memories and expectations. The food is great and the service is friendly, professional and accommodating. It always has a happy ambiance which makes it a great place for a special occasion, a friends night out or a date.
linguine w/clams had the perfect mix of flavors, veal chop was juicy and coconut sorbet were all tremendous!
the sauce over the mussels was drinkable!
service was a bit slow to start, but quickly turned into a team of great servers that engaged, laughed and didnt even ask if we wanted more bread, they just brought it!
i have wanted to try this place for years and will be back on my next trip!
Pancho was our Server and he is fantastic. Definitely the reason to go and go back. He makes sure everything is perfecto for the guest, especially the preparation and quality of the food. Top 1,2, or 3 Italian spot in the city because of his attention to detail at the table and in the kitchen.
The food was delivered to the table fast and it was good. However, for an Italian restaurant, I expected better quality of food and bread should be a must. But, food failed short. What really made the biggest difference was the service. It was mediocre and inattentive. The servers did not come to the table to check on us or on how the food was. They would awkward pass by the table but, don't ask how things were or check on the water. The music didn't match the Italian ambience (club music).
Authentic Italian food! Excellent service, amazing food!!
Still one of my favorite restaurants in the City. When Silvano is there it is even more special.
Amazing , delicious food, excellent service. Definitely be back
Our first trip to New York in a long time. This was our first dinner and it was recommended by my daughter. We loved everything about it. The veal shank was delicious. The service and ambiance outstanding. Thank you.
