Friday Night Dinner With Friends
One of my friends had heard about Silvio's and decided to make dinner reservations for us there last Friday night. There were only 3 reviews reviews on here so I was a little skeptical but dinner at Silvio's was one of the best meals I have had in years. Don't let the location or lack of parking throw you off because inside the little strip mall area there is a wonderful Italian experience just waiting for you. The restaurant is very very small and quaint. I think there are only around 15 tables so make a reservation! When we were there is was packed but it was not noisy and you could have a conversation at your table without yelling at each other. They have a small bar set up in the corner that you can also sit at. They have a wonderful selection of wines and a extensive drink menu. My only suggestion to the is to bring out a wine bottle chiller is a customer purchases the whole bottle. Maybe I should have asked for one. For an appetizer we ordered the Calamari. It was tender and very very good. I could have just eaten it for dinner. Our dinners started out with salad. You have your choice of Meillo or Caesar. We had a mix at our table and everyone said they were very good. The dressing on the Meillo was excellent. Entrees- I had the Aglio Olio with Shrimp ( An olive oil & garlic sauce tossed with angel hair pasta) If you love garlic like I do this is must. It was a little spicy because it has red pepper flakes in it but you can ask them to hold them or to go light with it. I can't wait to eat this again. My girlfriend also had this and loved it. My husband ordered Pasta with Meatball & Italian Sausage. He said it was very good. I honestly can't remember what my friends husband had because I was so into my own food..lol..or maybe it was the wine. We ended the night with their homemade Lemoncello Cake. OH MY GOODNESS it was like eating lemon flavored air. I could eat it everyday. I have never had a cake so light and fluffy. As a foodie this was just to die for. The staff is family and I loved that. The owners The Melillo Family are such warm and welcoming people. We had no idea that the chef, hostess and our waitress was family. They ended up talking to us through out the night and it made me want to come back and eat again and again. It's like one big happy Italian family. Just go and enjoy your evening. I might see you there.
