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.

Excellent food. Excellent service. Handmade pasta is a must try!!!! Great desserts. No reservations on the weekends, but their full poor wine glasses help pass the time while you wait.

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.
