Not your typical NY Italian restaurant. Food was sophisticated, delicious and perfectly cooked. The service staff was excellent and attentive at this CIA fine dining restaurant.

It has been over a year since I ate at Caterina preferring instead to eat at the Bocuse (another CIA restaurant) because I had found the portion size at Caterina, even by European standards, to be small. The value just was not there. I'm glad...More

The graduates of the school are chefs at conventions, weddings and, cruises. Do not forget that the meals are made by undergraduates, and this restaurant should not be rated.

We completely disagree with whoever said the food wasn't fresh. It was fresh, well prepared and delicious!! The service was great and getting to know a couple of the students was a blast.

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.
