Cafe Pomigliano curates a menu of classic Italian cuisine coupled with contemporary flavors for a dining experience rooted in family, friends, and sharing celebrated traditions.

A 20 year institution in the heart of downtown Libertyville, the family-owned café was founded in 1995 in tribute to the memory of Patsy Panico the family’s patriarch.  The name pays homage to Patsy’s childhood hometown, a small village just outside of Naples, Italy – Pomigliano d’Arco.

The family of Pomigliano prides itself on daily handmade dishes in its welcoming atmosphere.  The matriarch, affectionately known as 'Grandma' to all, remains in the kitchen in spirit as Executive Chef Brian Abbott continues the legacy of her soulful and flavorful dishes as well as new additions.

Chef Abbott comes to the Pomigliano family from a range of restaurants from fine-dining to brick oven bistros.  His acute attention to flavor and his passion for classic Italian traditions bridged with modern interpretations has provided a crafted menu with something for each guest.  

Whether you enjoy the flavors of Pomigliano in our home or yours, with an intimate group or for a celebrated occasion…

From our family to yours – welcome - join us in celebrating old traditions and new additions.
