Final Straw. Last and Final visit from me. – I have visited Silas over the past 5 years and all I can say is that they have gotten worse and worse with every visit. This time around is and will be my final visit to the Pizzeria. The food has slowly gotten worse compared to the first time I was introduced to Silas, now the worst part is the staff. The waitresses are rude and unprofessional. The manager simply put is a rude lady. Never will I eat here again. Never will I suggest to friends and family to eat here again. Silas you have lost a solid costumer and many others.
Absolutely Awful! – Sila's has always been dark and well, dirty looking, but the pizza was worth the risk. My last visit was my just that, my last. Service was worse than ever (it is always bad), and my once favorite pizza was terrible. It took an hour to get our food after ordering, that includes our salads and breadsticks, and the pizza tasted like dried out cardboard. To top it off, myself, husband and baby all got sick the next day!
Food is GREAT, Customer Service - fair - at best – Been going to Sila since I can remember, always a family favorite. Have had several birthday parties, rehearsal dinners, showers and just large family gatherings here. Food is always excellent, but the service for the past 1-2 years has been "fair" at best. They don't seem to like to work with large groups.
FIFTY PLUS YEARS TO PERFECTION! – My family has eaten Silas food since 1950`s. Of course then it was pretty much a pizza carryout located across the street. We watched the restaurant be built and shortly afterwards add and addition on too. The place could use a bit of a remodel, but how can they do that with place so busy?
I like the place for lunch or dinner and do get carryouts. Dinners are reasonably priced with generaous potions and true Italian cusine. You cannot go wrong with things like the Linguini and clam sauce or even something as basic as as the speghetti. It is all good! I also like their antipasto and ministroni soup is very good. They also offer up an ali fofo which is cheese and tomato sauce on a cripsy bun for those looking for more of a sandwich or sub type meal. They have american items incase maybe you have someone not into italian. Chicken, fish etc. ( I like their fish and chips as well). Of course their pizza is what gave them their start and if you try it, you will have no doubt as to why. I like the Sila special which includes many popular toppings or sometimes I feel like I want this and not that and order it to my own taste.
For any business to be around 50 years, they have to be doing something right. Like I said, the place could use a remodel and some brightening up, but if you are in for some serious itlaian food, this is the place. Be sure to wish them a happy 50th Birthday! I am amazed owners have not publicized this?
Great Lasagna and Service – I have been to Silas before and it seems to always get better. I was there last night with 10 of my family members and the food was excellent. The homemade bread sticks, lasagna, Anitpasto salad (homemade itailan dressing) and Sila Special pizza were great as usual. The servie was phenomenal. A waitress by the name Nancy catered to our every need and made my family feel as though we were part of the Sila family. Great Place and Great Service. I will definetely be back. Its nice to see family restaurants still around!!!!!
Old-School Italian Done Right – Sila's is wonderful. The servers are never cloying or phony - just committed to doing the job well. The prices are fair, and the "large" versus "small" portions cater to the budget conscious. The decor is as plain as can be and everyone likes it that way. Why? It's the food, people! Sila's is completely devoid of pretension, letting its down-home, authentic Italian food speak for itself. NOTE: both the cheese ravioli with tomato sauce and the pizza alla donna fillipa are the best you will ever eat anywhere, period.
Old style down home eatin! – The last of a dying breed -- The family owned sit down pizzeria. Pizza is great, italian dishes are even better!
Great for the price – Enjoyed a wonderful meal for a reasonable price. The serving sizes are adjustable for the diet conscious. A few windows would be preferred, but overall a wonderful place to eat and enjoy the food.
Best Kept Secret – Just good ole' good pizza. Didn't find this place till I had been in the area for Years. Its not too big, always packed, and I suspect folks just aren't talkin to keep the lines down.
