Mediterraneo

The colors and flavors of the Mediterranean come to life at Mediterraneo, located on the exclusive Greenwich Avenue in the heart of Greenwich, Connecticut. Bathed in the soothing tones of sand and sea, the restaurant features an inviting outdoor terrace and a contemporary dining room where soft, undulating lines mirror ocean waves. This elegant nautical theme is carried over to the menu, which highlights fresh, succulent seafood as well as elevated Italian favorites

We all went for a family dinner for a Christmas lunch the day after.
I had the lentil soup and chicken Milanese which was very good.
Kathy had a Caesar salad and the ravioli with mushrooms. It was outstanding.
Andrew had the Bronzino which he said was great.
Brian and Chris had the chicken Milanese as well.
Good service.

This fantastic establishment in downtown Port Chester offers a wide array of freshly baked items ( breads, muffins, scones, croissants, pies, cupcakes, cookies) PLUS delicious homemade soups and salads and sandwiches and a lovely salad bar. There are ample tables for dining in, too. Service is friendly and attentive. Definitely worth the drive from Westchester and lower Fairfield County.

Cafe Silvium

Reviewed By Pina B - Stamford, Connecticut

Being one-hundred percent Italian you can find it hard to dine out for Italian food. Like most Italian/Americans we know the true authenticity of our ancestor cuisine. You can't fool our palette. Café Silvium is like visiting your grandmother's kitchen. The food is authentic and delicious, so bring your appetite. You cannot make reservations so get there early so your not waiting for a table.

Valbella

Valbella, which since 1992 has been a celebratory place and a regular haunt for the locals who pack it most nights of the week both for its sumptuous food and its astonishing wine cellar, containing 1,450 selections and 16,000 bottles. <br>Downstairs in the wine cellar is where many people hold private parties of various sizes,and what a splendidly beautiful room it is, done in polished wood, with a lovely fireplace, the tables impeccably set, the stemware thin, the temperature geared to the maintenance of the wine. <br>Also an outstanding feature of the wine cellar is a heated granite table that can accommodate up to sixteen guests.

Have been to both the Riverside and NYC spots several times over the years. Riverside (Greenwich) starts off with the live reservation process--which is gruff. From a business standpoint--the bar seats maybe 5-7 people at best--very cramped for a business dinner--Bartender is old school and terrific.
Guests brought a special bottle of wine(1st growth Bordeaux) and were told --no corkage fee and not allowed. Their wine list is extensive and 3X of reality. Service was good not great--seating in wine cellar for dinner is a treat and a highlight. The food is good but not great as their parallel prices which again, are artificially high.

Found this gem in a strip mall on the Post Rd. just up from the Greenwich Regency Hyatt where we were staying. Ended up eating there three times during our one week stay. The food was amazing every time. Try the Bragoli special and the stuffed pasta with Oso Buco Ragu and finish with a great Cannoli! Love this place!

Went to enjoy some live music and had dinner beforehand. We enjoyed our meal with an appetizer of spinach-artichoke dip. I had chicken scarpiatta? over pasta (spaghetti) which wasn't as I had expected but pretty good since I was hungry. The price of a top shelf drink was surprising at $11.
