Less than 1 star! Avoid this place! The waiters are impolite, rude and push you to order what they call ''fresh'' burrata, ''fresh'' lobster with gnocchi! We were seated outside on a big table for 10 people, the waiter (a sly Italian guy), forced the table to order 10 antipasti - one each! And then had the courage to ask ''would you like salami, prosciutto while you wait for your antipasti''? And the worst part (except the check obviously), the total amount for bottles of water!!! 10$ each! And they didn't neither ask if we wanted tab water! They just continue to put bottles of water on the table and forced us to drink by filling our glasses every 10 minutes! Unbelievable! I absolutely NOT RECOMMEND that bad restaurant! You know the amount per person? 100$! I am Italian, and I have never seen a bad place like this (and Pitti next door) in New York! Don't go there, it's a trap for tourists!

I went here last night with my husband and found the staff to be rude, inattentive and unfriendly. The food was bland and I felt that everything I had was something I could have made better on my own- and I am NO chef! I would absolutely not recommend this restaurant and will never go back.

I can't believe some of the negative comments posted previously. My friend and I had lunch here this afternoon and were anything but disappointed in the food or service. We both ordered the veal chop for the main course. It was succulent and wonderfully seasoned, the garlic spinach and roasted potatoes also very tasty. The service was very nice. In fact, when the waiter brought the check, he informed us that the drinks were on the house. I don't know why, but who cares? It was a very pleasant dining experience.

This was one of the most overpriced and dissatisfying italian dining experiences I've had in NYC. I was planning on spending between $50 and $100 per person for our meal, but was not expecting a meal my girlfriend and i could cook with our eyes closed. Please, if you want a really great tuscan Italian meal in a similar or slightly less price range try Pepolino down in tribeca. Also try Frank in the lower east side or Accademia de Vino on the upper east side.

food was eh, service was not good at all. party of 10 on an early sunday night - capacity was 20% at best... and the waiter SHHH'd us! so rude. had to ask numerous times for things, no one was presented the dish they ordered. food was OK, but with thousands of NYC restaurants there is no reason to ever go here!

Da Silvano is a great spot for a summer dinner. The waiters were friendly, a little slow but nothing that's not bearable. I would love to go again.
