Fans of the Mellilo family’s restaurant cooking are looking forward to a new venture, to be called Silvio’s, which is taking shape in St. Matthews, at 104 Fairfax Ave., the site of a few different eating establishments in recent years.

The interior is getting a full renovation, and a new bar is being installed. Mellilo is shooting for an end of August opening for his mid-range, family-style Italian restaurant. He wants his fans to know that Nanna’s salad dressing will definitely be on offer.
