We enjoyed the home-made pasta dishes and conversation with the owner and pastry chef, Leslie. Starters of perfect bread and a creamy, goat-cheese sharpened roasted-garlic appetizer had us ready for totally satisfying gnocchi and ravioli entrees. Desserts from the pastry selections displayed in a vintage glass case were very good. This is a small space--6 or so tables--which made it... More

My husband and I dined at the Calico Restaurant mid-week. There are only 10 or so tables, so I would definitely recommend making a reservation. The menu offered so many delicious choices, so much so that we could not choose! From the bread rolls served, to our main courses, we were beyond satisfied. We enjoyed three different appetizers: the garlic... More

We had wanted to have dinner here; however, the restaurant is extremely small and quite busy. We decided to have some pastries to take out and they were delicious!

This lovely tiny restaurant-bakery is run by a husband and wife team who are bth graduates of the CIA (Culinary Institute of America). He is the... More

Calico is a cute little restaurant in the charming town of Rhinebeck. My friend and I enjoyed dinner while in town for this year's Sheep & Wool Festival. My butternut squash ravioli were excellent. The salad was simple lettuce -- super fresh. I had a lovely sour cherry mini tart for dessert. The staff is very friendly and the prices... More

According to trip advisor this restaurant was open at the time we arrived @ 4:15 but when we entered were told they would not be serving until 5:15. Big disappointment having driven out of our way to dine there.

Calico is an intimate restaurant (8 tables) run by a husband and wife - he is the chef and she is the baker/waitress. The restaurant offers excellent food at very reasonable prices with outstanding service. My wife ordered the Long Island duckling and it was absolutely delicious, among the best dishes of its kind we had tasted. I had the... More

Basically a good reasonably priced neighborhood restaurant with a friendly staff, good food, fast service - no ambiance whatsoever. The space with about 10 tables placed fairly close together was not comfortable in first view. We liked the menu and since the entrees included a salad we skipped appetizers. The wines offered by the glass are inferior so we chose... More
