“Unbelievable”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 23, 2012

Went of the cuff! No reservations, no plan. Arrived 8:00, were seated within 15 minutes by owner..Waitress was owners daughter, very informative and friendly and knowledgable! Ordered 3 apps for the able of 4, 2 would have been enough! The New Zealand cockles were out of this world! The creamy mozzarella rivaled Boston's north end. The orecchiette with minuture meatballs, excellent, Oso bucco was perfectly done. Rigatoni Gnact Gnact outstanding, ant the Battuta di pollo, just right. Portions were large but not overpowering. Best Tiramisu around. Make an effort to try the establishment out! You won't be disappointed!

“Finally found an excellent Italian Restaurant in Fairfield County”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 9, 2012

Excellent food, every dish. Attentive, courteous service. Fantastic dessert and cappuccino. Extremely reasonably priced - we were shocked that the bill was so low.

“Food was very good.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 4, 2012

If it is good food you are looking for this is a notable place. If you are looking for an elegant evening this may not be for you. My husband and I were traveling in the CT area and went here on a friend’s suggestion. We did have to wait an hour for a table but felt the food was worth the wait. There is not a bar area just a waiting area that can get very crowded. The fun is chatting with the strangers while you enjoy a beer or a glass of wine. There are no hard drinks served.
I will be sure to visit again when I am in the area and need a casual place with wonderful Italian food.

“Best Italian in Stamford”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 29, 2012

This is the place for excellent food at reasonable prices. Outstanding service is a bonus. The branzino is delectable. The gnact gnact pasta is also delicious. I love the bread and white bean salad that are brought to your table immediately. All the servers are terrific. They know the menu and move things along quickly and politely. To avoid a long wait, come before 6 p.m. or after 8:45 p.m. on weekends.

“Great Dining”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 29, 2012

This was our first visit to Cafe Sylvium although we had heard great reviews from many of our friends. The wait for a table was well worth it - we were a party of four and all of our dinner selections were excellently prepared. Wait staff was attentive and friendly. We will certainly return again.
