One of the best lunches I've ever had! Yes, I was surrounded by some of the media elite, but that fine by me. If was virtually a feast, with an array of italian goodies of all kinds, and everyone at the table enjoyed their meal. The dessert were rich and the service/ambiance of the place was top-notch. I definitely reccomend for business meeting (expense accounts) and I'd love/will strive to go back some time.

I took some out-of-town friends and they loved it. It was their favorite of all the places I took them to eat. Food was superb and the waiters spoke Italian to my Calabrese friends.

Great experience always. The cheery owner, and waitstaff make you feel like you have taken a vacation to Italy, As they are yelling and joking back & forth in italian. Not to forget the pasta is so fresh.

My boyfriend and I love italian restaurants, we enjoyed the food at Da Silvano, as well as the service. We sat outside which was very nice, and didn't have a problem finding parking. I would recommend this restaurant and definately will go back to eat there again

I can't complain about the food and service...both were excellent when I dined there. You know what the problem is with this place? It is overhyped...If you were to look at overall cost/quality of food and atmosphere it's really apparent that you can find better Italian food in NYC. This place is for bragging rights only...don't expect to be super impressed!

The opposite of what I expected: service is great and waiters are very helfpul and don't push for the appetizer/primi/secondi Food is very good: the specials are very fresh and reminds me of Italy. The scene is great as well! If you can afford it, one of the best trattoria in NY!

  • No, I would not go back!

The fuscilli with the spicy sausage and peas in a mildly creamy sauce was delicious. The braised Osso Bucco and my wife's white, flaky fish was one of the best entrees i've had since i raved about Fiamma. Absolutley delcious. Sitting outside in 40 degree weather with the heat lamps warming our backs and the wine and food warming our stomachs, mad for a pleasant dinner. Thus, you gotta expect that the bill would be ;arge- and it was. Once in a while, it's worth ckecking out superior Italian in a city that's filled with above avg Italian.

I was extremely disappointed in my experience at Da Silvano, from beginning to end. The scene was a swarm of yuppie bankers, interspersed with their "femme-bot" arm candy - hardly a romantic setting. The menu and drink list was horrifically overpriced: $60 for a carafe of sangria that could have been Hawaiian Punch; $20 for frozen calamari and cocktail sauce; $45 for Gnocchi. Are they kidding?? The restroom resembled that of a frat house - paper on the floor, over-flowing toilet. And the kicker - when we received our bill, the prices were all higher than what was stated on the menu. The only enjoyable part of the evening was actually the food. My dish was quite delicious, as were others'. And our waiter, aside from his grossly obvious push on the over-priced specials, was agreeable in correcting the bill. Overall, I won't be returning to Da Silvano, nor would I recommend it, unless you are in the mood for blowing money and leaving in a bad mood.
