LILO circa 2009 is an Italian pizza bistro located in Tappan's historic district opened by brothers, Richard & Robert Pellegrino. Executive Chef J.M. Guallpa prepares a menu that combines impeccable flavors from the Amalfi Coast with moderately priced bistro fare. The bar serves a range of house cocktails, wines by the glass or bottle, and several varieties of homemade pastries from the north of Italy. LILO is also available to host your special events.

"After making my lunch reservation to this local pizza & bistro place I didn't expect much however, as soon as I entered the restaurant, that all began to change. I expected to see a typical pizzeria type atmosphere. Instead, I entered a cozy bistro with a warm inviting decor. We tried the sausage/broccoli flatbread appetizer which was delicious! I ordered the mussels for my entree and was given a choice of three different sauces. I had the white wine sauce. The mussels tasted fresh and the sauce was very good. For dessert I had the chocolate mousse. It was light, airy, and very smooth and creamy.
I can't wait to tell my friends about this place and come back when the weather gets warm to sit and dine outside.

Built in 1790 as a barn and named for local farmer John Kittle, the farm to table connection that began back then continues today at Crabtree's Kittle House. Internationally renowned for its Wine Spectator Grand Award wine list, superlative hospitality and contemporary American cuisine, it is a sophisticated country dining experience located only 45 minutes from Manhattan. Whether stopping in for a casual meal in the Tap Room or planning a formal intimate celebration from 2 to 200 guests, you'll find something for everyone and every occasion at Crabtree's Kittle House. The culinary team focuses on the local bounty of the Hudson Valley, from the casual Tap Room menu of salads, LaFrieda burgers & fresh cold shellfish to the more refined cuisine on the a la carte and Chef's Tasting menus, available in both the Tap Room & Dining Room. And nowhere is there a greater selection of fine wines (5000!) and other libations. Also a Bed & Breakfast, there are 13 rooms for overnight accommodations

"I've been to this restaurant before and, hard to believe, it was even better this time! The staff was very attentive. They didn't rush us so we were able to relax and dine at a slow pace. Risotto was delicious. The grilled skirt steak with chimichurri sauce was to die for! The goat cheese cake with ginger snap crust was light and delicious. we loved the bits of ginger and honey sauce that accompanied it. Definitely a place I can't wait to come back to but this time in spring when I'm sure the views will be even better! I already know the food will be!"
