“Classic Italian!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 29, 2013

Come here regularly with friends for pasta, red wine and more! Can often be crowded, so arrive early and/or be prepared for a little wait. Friendly service, classic Italian menu and nice specials.

“Homey and Delicious”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 26, 2013

Went on a Wednesday night with family and it was packed and for good reason; the food and service was outstanding! The Cafe had a standard menu and a long list of specials. I had the grouper special with artichokes and sun dried tomatoes in a white wine sauce- absolutely fresh and delicious. We were a table of 9 so we all tasted each other's entrees- one better than the next! The ambience is lovely, but can get a bit loud when full. I give the staff an "A" for service and their ability to maneuver in those narrow isles. One of my favorites restaurants in Fairfield County.

“Tried and True”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 21, 2013

Nothing fancy about the atmosphere or general ambiance. Just good food at reasonable prices with reasonably good service. Noise level is moderate so conversation is possible. Reservations are honored. Wine list is good. "Specials" are priced in line with menu items and offered and priced on the menu so there is no surprise when the check comes. Veal dishes can be cut with a fork and portions are often big enough to be shared. Reservations are suggested.

“The Real Italian!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2013

We've been going to Cafe Sylvium for a couple of years, and always have a wonderful meal. The past is simply spectacular, as well as the appetizers (Prosciutto, calamari & piato rustico to name a few). Their canelloni is delicious, and one of my favorites is the Veal Gorgonzola (the sauce is amazing) and the veal tender and done to perfection. Their selection of entrees (every day a new menu) is very reasonably priced and the quantity almost good enough for 2! The dessert menu is also wonderful with the apple tarte & cream caramel being our favorites. Nicola, Vincenzo, Fernando, and all the staff do always their best to take care of us, and we feel very much at home.

“Great authentic Italian restaurant!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2013

Was looking around the area for a good place for lunch. Stumbled across trip advisor and this was rated #1. It did not disappoint. Fresh made pasta and fresh ingredients. Great service, large portions. Can't wait to go back.
