Class on Campus



The only area where the restaurant falls down is in its table service, much of it due, apparently, to lack of training and insufficient support during busy times. One night the lone waitress was pleasant and accommodating but also uninformed and unorganized. Another night a different waitress was more professional but overwhelmed, and always the kitchen followed the unusual practice of making and sending out one dish at a time, so that we couldn't enjoy our meals in unison.

Clearly, Silvio's hasn't quite mastered the move from casual counter to full-fledged table service. But for me, good food trumps imperfect service and, having overcome my prejudice, I'll be frequenting Silvio's corner of the campus for some of Ann Arbor's best pizzas and pastas.
