If you want excellent fine Italian dining then Reginato's is your place. As I walked into the Reginato;s a waiter stepped out of the kitchen and a breeze of garlic and parsley floated into the foyer. I knew I was about to experience some real Italian cuisine. To start of with I ordered a stuffed portebello mushroom in a red pepper sauce, the amount of taste that was in the slightly spicy mushroom was unbelievable. The next course was a homemade lentil soup that was among the best I have ever had. This was followed by an intermizzo a small amount of sorbet to cleanse the palate before the main course. Then came the entrée calamari fra diavlo with a side of spaghetti bolognese. The calamari fra diavlo is a classic Italian dish with calamari and mussels with a spicey version of marinara sauce. The calamari was cooked perfectly not overdone like so many places where it comes out hard and chewy. The side dish of pasta was quite a surprise in itself it had a delicious meat sauce on it and was cooked el dente as if I was in Venice. I ended the meal with a homemade tiramisu that had ladyfingers that were dipped in espresso but not soaked something hard to find if you are not in rome or New York City. I hope if you are in the area you will visit this traditional family owned restaurant, and enjoy it as much as I have

Great food, great service and a very enjoyable atmosphere. My family and I have been eating here for over 15 years. When my grown children come home to visit, they always want to return here for a great, relaxing Italian meal.

Reginato's is an Italian Restaurant in Lake Katrine, NY, 1 mile north
of Kingston. The food is above average and certainly of good quality but the main reason to come here is for the atmosphere.

There is an early bird special from 4-6. For $11.95 you get bread, soup or salad, sorbet, an entree, a fruit platter, and dessert or coffee, and ice cream or cake. Some of the choices are veal parmisan
and ziti bolognese and the portions are good. This is a great deal and even without the early bird special, you will still get the sorbet and fruit platter as an extra.

The service is excellent and they don't rush you. Coming here is an experience and I recommend it.
