A true benchmark machine, this machine made Rancilio a lot of money since it was introduced in 1998 - it has become the standard against which all other consumer, single boiler machines are measured against. Currently in its 3rd revision.
Steven Henderson (quality: 6.9)
Bottom Line: The Best machine for the money by far. If you cant afford a new one then get a used Silvia.
Steven Daris (quality: 4.7)

Steve UK (quality: 5.3)
Bottom Line: Quality pays for itself - owned one for over a year now and never regretted it
Steve Edelman (quality: 1.0)
Bottom Line: Avoid Ranchilio - Flawed construction
Steve Cairns (quality: 8.0)
Bottom Line: A superb machine for the money. For those willing to spend time to get to know this equipment, they will be rewarded with wonderful espresso shots and espresso based drinks.
Steve Boothe (quality: 5.7)
Bottom Line: If you like using a machine that will force you to develop your barista skills, the Silvia is for you. Be prepared...she's seductive and will have you counting the minutes until the next time you touch her (just don't tell your wife that!).

Bottom Line: Si vous avez les sous, achetez la, vous ne le regretterez pas.
