An exquisite dining experience
Okay. After my first visit to Silvio's I can definitively say it is the BEST Italian restaurant in Louisville and would be tops of many other markets in the country or world. I have travelled much and was raised in New England. Italian is perhaps my favorite food of all and Silvio's delivers the esthetics and flavors required in a Top Shelf restaurant. The owner/chef is an extremely personable gentleman who had my wife, daughter and my full attention when he visited our table. We felt like we were greatly welcomed and trusted his suggestions completely which ALL turned out to be perfect. Our waiter and other servers were very attentive, bringing us bread, water and whatever else we needed without prompting. The restaurant is tastefully decorated including white table cloths with famous classic crooners are heard lightly in the background. The menu highlights the classic fare found at all italian restaurants, plus some I haven't seen before. I went with the 2 specials of the night; ravioli with Italian sausage and the kale and beet salad. The presentations were food magazine worthy and the flavors bursted on my taste buds. My wife ordered Silvio's chicken with potatoes and broccoli which she loved and I agreed after a taste. She liked my dish also which I shared. Our daughter ordered her favorite dish (fettuccini Alfredo with shrimp) and found it to be the BEST she ever had. She can't wait to come back. The food is superb and Silvio is a pleasure to visit with. He makes you feel like you have been best friends forever. Their bread is to die for and their desserts are sublime. We had lemon and peanut butter Cannoli's and the sweet italian cream cake. Silvio's isn't just the #1 Italian restaurant in Louisville. It is running with the Top Guns of ANY venue. It is a must try for anyone who seeks finer dining. The prices are fair for the quality served and the service rivals the best I received anywhere. Silvio's provides an Experience that is lacking at most restaurants. We look forward to our next visit and I am completely confident in taking family and friends there for an exquisite dinner. Silvio's is a true 5 star restaurant in every way.
