Midwest Living Review
Silvio's, a small Italian restaurant tucked into the back of an office building, looks like an unlikely spot for the best pizza in a college town. But trust us, it's definitely worth stopping in. The classic Napoletana comes with fresh San Marzano tomatoes, fresh mozzarella, basil, garlic and oregano ($12 for a 10-inch), and the Capricciosa features plump mushrooms, oily artichoke hearts and olives. Did we mention Silvio's only cooks with organic ingredients? Yum. There's a reason this pizza tastes authentically Italian: Silvio, from Italy's Abruzzo region, was taught everything he knows by his father, and the business has been around for a quarter-century. Aside from the wide selection of organic, wood-fired pizzas, you can choose from stuffed pizza and calzones, gluten-free pizzas, sandwiches, pastas, soups and salads, and if you're feeling inventive you can always create your own masterpiece. Whatever you choose to eat at Silvio's, take comfort knowing that you'll always be munching on the freshest ingredients.
