Café Silvium is the go to restaurant for the best Italian food in Stamford. It's a wonderful, family owned piece of heaven! Just love going to dinner here. Whether with family or friends, never a bad meal.

I had the best mussels,salad and the most delicious chicken with mushrooms and artichokes. My friend who was born in Italy can't seem to find a good Italian restaurant until I took him here. He said the food was really delicious and the desserts to die for!! Anyone in Stamford should not miss a chance to eat lunch or dinner.

Alone and stuck in area having car repaired. This place is an Italian oasis in Stamford. Do not pass it by if ever traveling on I-95 in this area. Low keyed, delicious, authentic, lots of seafood. Charming service, simply fabulous.

We are just back from Venice where we were in great restaurants, but this is better than any! We are regulars here and so are a lot of the patrons. The staff is friendly, helpful and the food is amazing. I have trouble making my dinner choice but the staff helps to narrow it down, and then my mouth is... More

This is a cozy neighborhood restaurant with mostly repeat clientele. The food is always excellent and the staff is always efficient and friendly. The biggest problem is always the choice between all of the specials and all of the regular menu. I have to keep going back to keep trying new things as well as having old favorites. It is... More

Was introduced to this place by a friend's of the owner who goes there all the time. Good Italian food - fresh traditional Italian food. This restaurant has been here forever I was told :) Small venue, packed usually and no reservation allowed so you have to wait :(

Well, if you live within 30 minutes of Stamford and haven't tried this place, you're missing out. But be prepared, the wait can be brutal. Calamari was the freshest I've have in quite a while. The zucchini flowers were also light and delish. We had the grouper special and it was spot on, cooked perfectly and very tasty.

Service and food both fantastic! Kind staff helped us maneuver a wheel chair into restaurant. Great intimate setting where you could hear yourself talk. Most enjoyable experience had at a restaurant in quite some time.
