This place is worth the wait. Great food at great prices. The atmosphere is like being at home with family.

As usual Cafe Silvium provided a great meal! Wednesday lunch in early January was not very busy so we were seated quickly! Large menu selection but light on salad options. Lobster Ravioli are the best restaurant ravioli I have tasted! Wait staff was attentive. Pricy but worth it for a quality meal.

I had been to Cafe Silvium as a guest a year or so ago for lunch and it was very good. So i decided to take my family last night as our daughter was visiting from Holland. What a let down. The food was a decent presentation but overcooked and octopus bland and served over the same beans given to... More

Best Italian in town. I am a vegetarian so food is always a bit of a challenge. Got enough variety at the restaurant

A meal at Silvium is a treasure and a brilliant experience. The menu will satisfy the most discriminating of tastes. Many dishes for vegetarians and vegans. Service is attentive, yet not intrusive. As with any excellent Italian restaurant, the menu is just a suggestion of the kitchen's skills as special requests are easily provided. Come early; enjoy a stunning repast.

I have dined here on many occasions over the years. The food is authentic, interesting, delicious and though upscale food, the cost is reasonable for the quality. My caveats are the same: Very popular, so expect to wait and enjoy a glass of wine while you await your table...especially on weekends. The setting is cozy, romantic and ambience is friendly,...

Cafe Silvium is always consistently outstanding. Huge diverse menu, fair prices, large portions, good desserts, glass of wine was even huge. Love this place. Hard to get in though sometimes because it is so good.

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
