Fabulous- everything we tried exceeded expectations in every way! Best chicken picatta ever, and ginger crème brûlée was unexpected and stellar. Memorable food and service. Just perfect!!!

Mamma Silvia's Italian Kitchen is one of the best restaurants here in Durango. The food not only looks good but tastes good as well. The employees are friendly and excellent serving customers. It was our first visit and we can't wait to go back again.

The best part of our experience was our server.
The ambiance was just sad. The restaurant shares space with an Asian restaurant, so the music and setting were just odd. Not what we expected for an Italian restaurant.
The food was okay. However, entrees like chicken parmigiana and chicken piccata were not served with pasta, instead the sides were veggies and potatoes.
We won't be back.

We definitely enjoyed our dinner and the young servers and hostess were very friendly and accommodating. The kitchen was going overboard with red pepper flakes even on dishes that weren't supposed to be spicy but our server jumper to the rescue and replaced our angel hair pasta dish. Portions are generous. Definitely make a reservation.

None of the servers were wearing masks. We had a reservation but our table wasn't ready when we got there. The lasagna, which is usually fantastic, was dry and overcooked and was burnt on the bottom. The wait staff seemed stressed out too.

Delicious homemade pasta and Italian dishes. A dish my daughter had before was spicy this time, that is the only negative. Otherwise, everything was so good. Reasonably priced as well.

Mama Silvia was a super recommendable restaurant. We weren't too impressed when we first walked in. It was small room with a nice bar and two booths. The bar had a laundry basket with cloth naptkins which did not give a good first impression. They sat us at a booth that sit between the Asian restaurant and Mama Silvia. It was awsome. Our server, Bailey was not only a great server but a lovely person to talk too. She made our dining experience even better!!!.
The food was, Oh My Gosh, soooo good!!!! Price was nit bad at all. We had appetizers, dinner for four (two kids), a bottle of wine and a desert and paid $130. Not bad at all.
The Cheese cake is a must!!!! Not your ordinary cheese cake.

We had a reservation and waited for another table to clear which was okay but the food did taste a bit different, I should have sent the food back because I was sick throughout the night . Probably will not go back.

Our waiter really made this place special and to top it off the food was excellent. Everyone enjoyed it and had a good time. Our kids sat at their own table and our waiter treated them like adults and they loved that. We will tell everyone about this place!

The reason we visited for dinner tonight is because we enjoyed a meal here on our vacation last year. It was so good then that it made an impact with us. Tonight was every bit as good! One of the best experiences in town! Great service. Classy.

I ordered a pasta dish and added chicken and hot Italian sausage. It was served without the meat, but our waitress was able to get it for me even after the chef told her to go away. I had to wait about 10 more minutes for the meat. Hubby really wanted chicken parm but was informed that it doesn't come with pasta! Huh? It comes with potatoes and veggie. Can't sub it either! Why not? Pasta costs much less than veggies, but I digress. So, he reluctantly ordered lasagna, which was ok and had hardly any meat in it. The meals don't come with soup or salad. I have never been to an Italian restaurant that didn't include a soup or salad lol. The bread was the best part of the meal, although the first round wasn't even warm. We did get dessert, tiramisu for me and zeppolis for hubby. Both were super yummy! We wanted a really excellent Italian restaurant for our anniversary, and we got overpriced Olive Garden chain restaurant fare.

Very much just ok. We were celebrating an anniversary and our seating, service and meal were very lackluster. Food was just ok. Not the best place if you are expecting a romantic dinner. Disappointed, to be honest.

It wasn’t their best day. They were down to 1 server and the hostess was filling in. They were out of a few things but it seemed to be the norm in Durango this time. I do wish they would put a Caesar or house salad on the menu. We still like the place and will go back for sure.

My husband and I had an exceptional meal at Mamma Silvia’s on September 11, 2021, along with great service by Bailey. My husband had the veal Marsala; I had the chicken piccata. We also had the mussels appetizer and the orange salad. We agreed that it was the best meal we have had recently in Durango, besting some of the other top restaurants (we are long-time locals). My only constructive feedback is that the decor and general ambiance could be dressed up a bit to create a more colorful and intimate Italian dining experience. Some Italian music or some Frank Sinatra in the background would also add to the ambiance.

Restaurant was very warm. We were seated near the kitchen.

Food was good. Not an overly exciting menu but not horrible either. Husband had Linguine with Clams which he said was really good. I had the Penne Primavera which tasted fresh.

Caprese salad was good but over dressed.

Tiramisu was a letdown my husband said. Not traditionally made and flavor lacking.

The food was excellent and service very attentive. We had the caprese appetizer and it was different from what we have had before but very good I had the spaghetti bolonase and it was delicious but more than I could finish. My wife had the special, mushroom cannelloni and it too was excellent. Our only complaint was it was too dark to read the menus so we had to bring out the cell phones. Highly recommend this establishment.
