  1. the one in fishkill (barilotto) is quieter, more appropriate for an anniversary dinner.
    wonderful food at both.

    1. hi Corky. I took my boyfriend to il Barilotto for his birthday dinner last year. The environment is lovely and appropriate for a special occasion. I don't remember what we ordered exactly -- I know he had a duck confit appetizer and was disappointed -- but I do remember we did not come away raving about the food. I haven't tried Aroma Osteria, but that was also recommended, as was Beso (I think that's the name) in New Paltz. Please update the board after your dinner -- and happy anniversary!

      1. I think both places are very nice. il barilotto has a more romantic vibe, but i prefer the food at aroma osteria (if they have the roasted chicken special, it's amazing). you might want to check out il continori in wappingers as well. the food there is very good.

        1. Both are good, but Barilotto has an exposed brick more bar like feel to me. It's nice for a dinner with your wife, but for a party, I'd lean to the more elegant feeling Aroma if it were me.

            i wanted this restaurnat to be great since Zagats rated it so high but i can't give it the accolades it has been given. The lamb shank and pappadelle were under seasoned. The grilled baby octopus was bland and needed more grilling. I will say the house Nero was quite nice. The atmosphere was loud but I expected it to be. The prices are reasonable
