The large interior is very Mediterranean. The food was good, not outstanding as we expected. We found the service was slow on a Thursday evening.

Getting a table here can be difficult at times, but well worth the wait. The culinary students work to perfect their art both in the front and back of house. With knowledgeable sommelier (student) on hand as well, you're sure to get the ultimate in...More

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.
