American Fare. Italian Flair.

between homemade recipes, traditional bar food, a rotating craft beer list and mouthwatering cocktails - at bar cilento, there's something for everyone.


Located just outside Morristown and less than an hour from New York City, Bar Cilento infuses classically traditional American bar fare with its Italian-American owners' culinary heritage.

Pronounced chee-LEN-toe, Cilento is the region in southern Italy where owners, Sam and Gerardina "GiGi" Giordano, were born and raised. (And where they met!)

For Sam and GiGi, the region of their upbringing represents everything they aim to achieve with their restaurant and tavern: A sense of family. A respite from life's inevitable stressors.

And having lived in America for nearly five decades, it's the ultimate manifestation of their appreciation for American bar staples infused with the culinary TLC Italians are known for the world over.

Opened in 2015 - and family-owned and run - Bar Cilento serves as a dynamic testimony that the American Dream endures.
