We live in Shippan and it's a neighborhood favorite Italian restaurant. On the weekends, it's packed and the line is out the door. If possible, enjoy a delicious lunch during the week and it's much more relaxing. Easy to do if retired ;)

Everything I've ever eaten here was great. I make sure to get something different every time. Prices are extremely reasonable for authentic Italian in the area.

I was looking forward to trying out the number 1 rated restaurant in the area, however, if you're a party of one (on business) you're considered taboo. Website said, reservations for 5 or more, but when I walked in (6:30pm)and said table for one, the immediate response was, "sorry can't help you." I said, there's three open tables, 2 deuces...

We had a family dinner on Tuesday night. The reservation was for 8pm . When we arrived at 7:45, we were told that we have to wait until 8. No problem. We returned at 8, we were told, they are running late. Give us another 15min. That's fine. At 8:30 we were told, sorry, two tables that already paid, just... More

I was skeptical of an old world Italian place being ranked #1. Small parking lot, tight cramped waiting area, but good drink list while you wait. We started with the clams and buffalo mozz/prosciutto apps and both were amazing. The clams were little neck style in a white wine broth. The cheese melted and paired well with decent prosciutto. Dinners... More

I visited Café Silvium on 6/22 at the recommendation of the Hilton. I came in without a reservation but was promptly seated. Received my drink quickly. I noticed a gentleman walking through and asked if he was the manager. He was one of the owners (Nick, I believe) and I asked if they could prepare the red snapper as a... More

A real find in Fairfield County. Very good Italian food, generous portions and a friendly welcome every time we visit. Wide selection of dishes for carnivores, herbivores and omnivores! Reservations available for 6 or more but there can be a wait for smaller parties on weekends.
