After reading great reviews, I drove to this restaurant from NYC to meet old friend who lives near. We had to wait 30 minutes even though we made reservation. Place was crowded and noisy. Our appetizers were good and they give you big portions. My main dish was just too salty and could not finish even half. I gather, this... More

I've been eating at Cafe Silvium for ten years. The food is fresh, delicious and always great. The wait staff is friendly, prompt and helpful. No better restaurant in the Stamford, Greenwich, Darien area.

My friends and I went to cafe silvium for my birthday celebration. The food was outstanding, especially the fish dishes, they were so fresh, even on a Tuesday night! Service was attentive, but not rushed so we could relax and enjoy the meal. Desserts were sublime and a great treat before my new year's diet resolution! Can't wait to go... More

I had lunch with a large group, ten in total. Restaurant is small, close seating, noisy but everyone in the entire restaurant appeared to have a great time. Food was timely, and tasty. Service was prompt and efficient. even Michael Strahan came in for a bite.

My wife, daughter and I ate here the night before Thanksgiving and enjoyed an excellent meal. Portions were large, even for dishes like Osso Bucco and Short Ribs over Risotto, and the quality was terrific. We each had the house wines which were very reasonably priced and good [but not great]. We'll probably order a bottle next time. Fortunately we... More

This is an excellent traditional Italian Resturant in Stamford. The only problem is the wait. Because it is so popular there is always a 30-45 minute wait time. But I have to say it is worth it!
