On a recent trip through Akron/Canton, Ohio, this past weekend, my husband and I were looking for a place to go for dinner on Friday night. The shuttle bus driver, David, from the Hilton Garden Inn at the airport there suggested Sylvester's, since it is his favorite. We prefer local restaurants over chain restaurants anyway, so a reservation was made... More

We'd been to Sylvester's a couple time previously, but I'd never gotten the "Make Your Own" Pasta. Uh... what a mistake that's been. Trust me, go and build your own pasta dinner, it's amazing. The pasta, the bread, the salad, the garlic butter. Fantastic. What a gem to have in North Canton. I highly recommend Sylvester's not just for the... More

Sylvester's is a common choice when I have a group in town for business. The varied menu, comprised of Italian food, steaks and seafood has something for everyone. The decor is a bit old school and dark. Lots of locals here. Try the pecan-crusted walleye. Lovely.

Great little Italian restaurant. Great for couples, families or friends getting together. Great bar. Best meatballs in town. Everything is homemade.

Went here on a recommendation when I asked for the best Italian...and man were they spot on. From the outside you wouldn't know this was a restaurant - looks like a working class neighborhood bar. As it turns out it IS a bar but the atmosphere here is outstanding. Everyone on the staff as well as the patrons were awesome...felt... More

I eat at Sylvester's often. Have never had a bad meal! Always top notch! Chicken Parmesan, prime rib, fish dishes .... Everything is delicious!

Make sure to make a reservation. The walleye is a great dinner and the stuff tortellini are also great. Large selection of wines & additional weekly specials.

The big thing about Sylvester's is don't expect a smiling face from the staff, except for Jimmy. He is the only friendly and accommodating person in the place. We have been going there since it opened, and know a few people that work there. We don't go very often anymore, maybe once a year now and not by my choice.... More

Overheard two business men talking about this place at the bar at the Hilton Garden. Tried it for dinner the following night. Sat at the bar. The service was quick and spot on despite the place being packed this Friday night. Pretty extensive menu. Opted for fried peppers for appetizer. Great spaghetti with sausage. Someone next to me had their... More
