Palizzata Italian Restaurant is a family-owned Italian restaurant that was inspired by the culinary travels of father-son team Eric and Joseph Cafaro.

The cuisine, community and restaurant experience they found in Italy was something they simply had to bring home to the Hudson Valley. Both Joseph, Executive Chef, and Eric, General Manager, are Hudson Valley locals.

Since our opening in 2018, we have been continually thinking about how we can improve our offerings and services to our clientele and customers. As a result, welcome to Palizzata Marketplace & Eatery, all ready and open for business!

In addition to our great eatery and delicious food, we have created a new Marketplace Store at the front of our premises. Now, not only can you still enjoy all your favorite Palizzata dishes and drinks, but you can also buy our top-quality Italian products, such as fresh pastas, sauces, oils, balsamic vinegars, cheeses, grocery items, and prepared Palizzata dishes to go.
