Da Silvana may look modest from the outside, but the quality and freshness of the fish speaks for itself. Amazing value for 4 courses, generous portions and super speedy service. The mussels are great and the grilled fish delicious. In summer or weekends booking is recommended-enjoy!

If you come here on a busy Sunday lunch you can't hear yourself think for the happy buzz of Italian chatter as 100s of people enjoy the set menu. The food is great fresh and simple and served with gusto. Grilled fish straight from the wood fired BBQ and wine included. It's very cheap great value and good fun.

Overrated indeed, food is cheap but definitely not the best, oily and tasteless. A big shock since I walked in as the restaurant was packed and very noisy, I could barely hear my friends. The very good thing is the staff: friendly, nice and efficient.

Go with the right expectations and this place is absolutely amazing. U can't really say its a restaurant, more a huge canteen so if you are looking for a romantic dinner avoid!!! However if you are looking for some of the best seafood the island has to offer and u want to experience some real authentic Italian family vibe I... More

As soon as the first course came we decided something was definitely wrong.The spaghetti was overcooked,the pieces of fish were just shells and the amount of... More

Da Silvana was recommended by the owners of the agriturismo in which we stayed. The place is very simple but the food is fantastic - the fixed menu is based on what was caught that day. A feast for extremely reasonable price!

I had dinner here with my partner in July 2011. They serve a very good 22 euro prix fix menu which includes (but is not limited to) excellent mussels in tomato sauce, delicious spaghetti alle vongole (clam spaghetti), water, house wine and coffee. The food is fresh and well-cooked. Our waiter was very kind and friendly and we enjoyed our... More
