When Silvio’s Organic Pizza expanded next door into the former Beanie June boutique in February, Silvio Medoro more than doubled the seating at his five-year-old restaurant. He also has added table service, a whole new look he calls “modern Italian” (lots of bright greens and reds and imported Italian tile), and a hydroponic herb garden on one wall. As soon as Lansing gets done processing the paperwork, he’ll also have a license to sell beer and wine.
The original space still has the same long tables and communal seating for people who like Silvio’s for fast, fresh food they can order and eat in a matter of minutes. The new space has smaller tables and booths for those who prefer to stay a spell and enjoy a more intimate dining experience. Either way, customers can still enjoy Silvio’s signature organic pizzas, pasta, and sandwiches–Medoro says the menu will stay as it is but adds “we’ll have monthly changes,” and he is planning specials designed around locally available produce in season.
