old tappan historyOld Tappan History

The Delaware Indian word “Tuphanne” is where the name Tappan is derived from. It means cold water. Why it was named Old Tappan, no one knows, but it is believed that it was to distinguish it from Tappan, New York, of which Old Tappan was formerly a part. In 1704, Cosyn Haring, one of the original 16 parents, obtained a land grant from Queen Anne of England for most of the land which is now Old Tappan. – See more at: NJMLS

“Vicolo Ristorante, which opened in Old Tappan over the summer of 2011, offers upscale Italian cuisine at affordable prices. Old Tappan became a little more appetizing this past summer with the addition of Vicolo Ristorante, which opened its doors in July at 216 Old Tappan Road. General Manager Benny Qosja is certainly no stranger to the restaurant industry, having operated Il Vicolo for the past 15 years in his hometown of Livingston. The success of the first area restaurant compelled him to expand, and the opportunity, he said, to open a place in a “beautiful area” like Old Tappan was simply too good to pass up. Patrons of Vicolo Ristorante can expect upscale dishes highlighting the finest of Italian cuisine. Chilean sea bass, homemade ravioli and osso bucco are just a few of the customer favorites.”  Read more
