Café Lily is a venerable neighborhood bistro offering an eclectic variety of cuisines from around the Mediterranean Sea: Italy, France, Greece, Spain, North Africa, and the Middle East. Fresh seafood, steaks, pastas, and a large selection of small plates and tapas round out a balanced and varied menu. Cafe Lily also offers half sizes on many of its entrees.


Opened by father-and-son duo Angelo and Anthony Pitillo in 1999, back before Decatur became an important dining destination, Cafe Lily exudes comfort thru its warm ambiance and charming decor. After Angelo's passing in 2007, Chef Anthony and his mother, Elizabeth, carried on the Lily tradition of providing exceptional service and a consistent experience to its patrons. Chef Anthony's cuisine features bold yet balanced flavors in a rustic style, without the pretense of many other upscale restaurants. High-quality of ingredients and preparation and incredible value, along with friendly, down-to-earth service, make dining at Cafe Lily a sure-fire pick, whether for a romantic get-together, special occasion, large party, or just a glass of wine and some tapas.
