This was my secret place.....a gem in Stamford. Ask for wine recommendations that are not on the wine list.

We always spend the last night if our holiday at a 'posh' restaurant. It has been hit and miss in the past. This is the first time that we have taken the advice from the contributors to trip advisor. Cafe Sylvium was 1st out of 388 reviews in a very salubrious area, so how good can it be. They don't... More

Arrived with heightened expectations and a healthy appetite - left completely satisfied with expectations exceeded by the actual meal. Can be a little tricky to get right in and no really good place to wait, but way worth it. Every bite better than the last. Go!

This is a really simple review. Loved the food, loved the service and really loved the prices. The menu is extensive...something for everybody. The only thing that I am sorry about is that I didn't know about Cafe Silvium sooner!

Checked out the trusty TripAdvisor app and made made the trip out here for dinner. If I knew any better I should have made reservations as this place was busy on a Thursday night with all tables filled with happy patrons. I ordered a glass of Pinot Noir and waited about 20 minutes before I was served. The waiter who... More

From the beginning, Nikki or Vincenzo greet you warmly and it all continues. Wait staff, light, bright and a breath of fresh air. Knowledgeable. Wine pours are amazing. Quality of food, especially the fish is superb.and you never will leave looking for more to eat.. Very fair pricing. Desserts average. Oh, I forgot the beans , bread and olive oit... More

The line and waiting is not pleasant, there is no space, but the food is worth the wait. You can make reservations during the week (recommended) but on the weekend only on parties of 5 or more. I have nothing to say but Wow! Coming from NYC, this place is "little Italy" worthy. Have to experience this place, if you're... More
