This is the best Italian Resturant in Stamford. The food is wonderful and the prices are even better. The service is as good as everything else. The only take reservations for more than 5 people but the wait is still worth it.

My party was success- this Cafe Silvium is Italian home style and super tasty- Italian taste, hospitality, portion size and all. It’s difficult to make reservation though- plan well ahead of your party date.

I don’t think so...not for 2 on a Saturday. You might have a long wait, but, depending upon your patience, it will be worthwhile.
