Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

My family and I had such a delicious meal here with wonderful service. I had the linguini with lobster and panna cotta for dessert. Definitely give it a try!

We had the best meal & service of our entire five days in Venice at Ristorante San Sylvestro! The location is lovely, we were greeted promptly without a reservation and the lady was welcoming & accommodated us quickly. Immediately we were impressed by the friendliness...& hospitality of the waitstaff. In particular we loved our waiter, Dario, who answered our questions about Italian customs & food happily & provided great recommendations on the menu. We all loved our food (kids included) and decided it was worthy of coming back the next night as our last meal in Venice! We had Dario again & he didn't disappoint -- he immediately remembered us & our preferences and made us feel so welcome. Excellent experience, beginning to end, & excellent food!More

Treat yourself to fresh, flavorful plates of pasta and seafood. San Silvestro is charming. Grazie to owner, Stefano, and Nico, who attended to us so thoughtfully. The ravioli with branzino, and the whole branzino (filleted and served tableside), were delightful. For the branzino, try going...off menu and have it prepared as they do… delicate and tender, with a special sauce featuring fresh cherry tomatoes, olives, and potatoes. You’ll leave San Silvestro happy. With a full stomach and a warm heart.More

One of the best restaurants we tried in Venice in 2022 and we came back again in 2024. Excellent food, portions are large and the service is super friendly. The tiramasu & creme brulee was the best we've ever had. There is a reason it's...so highly rated. Make reservations. They were packed. Please ask about the art work on the walls. Cool history.More

We had an amazing lunch here and you can certainly see why it filled up and got busy quickly. The food was amazing and I would definitely recommend the fresh tuna. My son is convinced that the tiramisu is the best in Venice. Unfortunately I...can't comment as he are it all himself!More

Had a blast celebrating my parents’ 30th wedding anniversary at the restaurant. The staff were really friendly, attentive and caring, and continuously checked on us and whether we were happy with the service and product. What really made an impression on me was that they...brought a cake for our parents and were singing in Italian (probably congratulating), and even though we didn’t understand, it felt like we were celebrating with family instead of people we just met. Service 10/10, food 10/10, and price all worth the good time we had there!More

Sorry I just saw this question. I hope it’s not too late. We had a party of four and just walked in. They were able to seat us. It probably depends on the day and time.
