Once again I had a great dining experience at Cafe Sylvium. This time I enjoyed one of their veal dishes with a tasty mushroom sauce. The food is terrific and there is good value for the money.

I really miss good Italian down here in Houston and I make sure I get my fix when I go up the northeast. We had burrata prosciutto and caprese to start and then lobster ravioli and scallopini for mains, it was so so good! Our...More
