Caffe Anello

Located in the heart of downtown Westwood, Caffe Anello offers the spectacle of Italian cooking in the heart of Bergen County

The inspiration of our open kitchen restaurant began on our honeymoon trip to Tuscany. Our aim was to craft fresh food, made with loving care and pride — in a cozy Italian atmosphere right here in our own backyard of New Jersey.

Our pastas are cut fresh daily while our  Meats come from the local butcher for the highest quality steaks.  

As important as we treat our guests, Anello’s employees are also crucial to our success. Our very own chef/owner John Vitale is a leading voice in the FairKitchens movement — working to promote a positive kitchen culture.

Come for the “at home feel” ambiance and the unrivaled experience with our “family”. Buon Appetito!

About Us

Napoletano & Vitale Family

store owner

The idea was born on a honeymoon: John Vitale and Alissa Napoletano-Vitale's 2012 honeymoon in Paris and Tuscany proved to be quite productive. Falling for the crepes in Paris and the handmade pasta and fresh-roasted coffee in Italy, the Cresskill pair decided they wanted to open a restaurant in North Jersey, featuring European dishes. They began by launching Sogno Coffeehouse with Alissa’ parents (Joe & Cheryl Napoletano) in November 2012, which quickly became a popular Westwood neighborhood spot for its sweet and savory crepes and in-house roasted coffee. Then in 2013, they expanded next door to open Caffe Anello, a 20-seat Tuscan-inspired eatery with an open kitchen and daily fresh-made pastas. "Since I was 8 or 9, I've been in the kitchen with my parents and grandparents," said John, chef/owner. "Cooking is a hobby that's become a profession." Alissa, a native of Cresskill, does marketing and social media for the restaurants.  

Why Choose Us?

Sogno  is proud to serve only the finest Arabica beans. Our roast process involves small, handcrafted batches of single-origin beans. Why single origin and not blends? Our Master Roaster believes that each region of the world that produces the best coffee crop should be tasted individually to appreciate the vast flavors and tasting experiences. Our coffee is roasted fresh every day and packaged on our premise. The attention we give to the quality of our coffee bean selections as well as the roast process is simply unrivaled. The taste and the freshness of our coffee brands are in a league of their own. We pick up our raw coffee beans at the port and roast them in our custom-built roaster. Hence our business slogan…”From country to cup. Enjoy!”
