We went to dinner on the early side and got seated immediately. We were warmly greeted by our server and given a basket of their wonderful warm Italian bread. We all ordered our favorite red sauce meal and took some home, too. Delicious food.

We have been going to Silvestro's for over 40 years. Jerry is always at the door to greet and seat you! The food is to die for and have never had any complaints. Try their meatballs and rigatoni and you won't be sorry.
