Went for lunch and food was good to excellent depending on what you ordered. We were 4 and had wine, pastas, main course, desert, and espresso/cappuccino. Don't expect an inexpensive meal but great for special occasions. Service is faultless: attentive and don't rush you.

Truly authentic regional Italian cuisine takes center stage at Ristorante Caterina de' Medici, a sophisticated dining room overlooking a stunning herb and rose garden, and the Hudson River. Or enjoy wood oven pizza and other simple rustic dishes in the more casual Al Forno Trattoria. Dining at this grand Tuscan-style villa is a culinary escape to another world without ever having to leave the beautiful Hudson Valley.
