This is by far one of the best restaurants you will ever find in Bologna. I have been to quite a few over the last 10 years. Da Silvio is a genuine Bolognese restaurant tucked away in proper distance from the tourist traps around Piazza...More

We were recommended this place by a friend who lives locally. He also suggested that we request they take off all the pre-laid antipasti on the table as this limits your choice later when ordering and is also something which diners are charged for later....More

This is a restaurant where you don't have a menu. When you arrive, they bring you some antipasti (not that impressive, with the exception of the peperonata,) then they bring you pastas, which are really good. However the risotto lacked luster (I have had much...More

Da Silvio was recommended to us by a Bolognese who hadn’t been there in a long time, so it’s our fault for not being more cautious. We walked into an almost empty room manned by dispirited waiters standing around with nothing to do. We immediately...More
