One of the best Italian restaurants I have been to

Consistent with the TA reviews, we chose to come while staying one night in Stamford. An excellent choice, the food was terrific. Also to note, the service was really good, attentive but never hurrying us. One thing to be aware of, make reservations. This was a Thursday night and I assumed it... read more

We were a group of six and we had reservations. They had a great table for us. We had our drinks when their kitchen fan conked out. They didn't take in any more customers for the evening, and they told us we would have some delays and certain items (fried stuff) they had to take off the menu. Nevertheless, they... More

Lots of selection, great daily/weekly specials, great food, decent portions, excellent value for money. Excellent service. I just did not like the fact that the tables were so close together - had to move my chair twice to let guests pass. Otherwise I would have given an "Excellent"

Food is great and the environment is always fun! Parking is a challenge but once inside totally worth the hassle.

We often have dinner at Cafe Silvium and amazingly have never been disappointed! The service is very efficient, yet also very friendly. Portions are very generous, and we often take some of our dinner home. House wines are good, reasonably priced and good pour. And the food is awesome. There is a long list of specials every night, along with... More

The ambiance and the food are top notch. There is no better Italian food in the area- period. The service is great, and I have never had a bad meal. A little cramped on the inside and it's a pain that they don't take reservations, but we will keep going back again and again.

Fantastic place. Yes, I felt a bit guilty by picking the restaurant to meet up with old friends by checking the top restaurant in Stamford as per Trip Advisor....but guess what? It was excellent! In a somewhat rough 'hood in Stamford which is "up and coming" apparently, this place ticked all the boxes. Great food, great service and good atmosphere.

We had a very pleasant lunch. Each had a pasta dish. Gnocchi with sausage was excellent. My wife had linguini with shrimp which she said was very good. We have always had good good here. You'll like it.

Some of the best Italian I've ever had. Great selection of seafood entrees. The veal gorgonzola and osso buco are also superb.
