About Us

Cucina, opened by Chef Gianni Scappin and Lois Freedman in 2006, is situated in a restored and rambling farmhouse in historic Woodstock, NY. Chef Scappin offers simple and elegant food, a signature approach he has since brought to two additional restaurants in the Hudson Valley.

The contemporary Italian menu is based on seasonal and local ingredients. Cucina radiates a warm atmosphere in a country chic setting with modern touches. Dine with friends at the 24-seat communal table or more privately in a dining room. On warm days, bask in the sunlight on the large wraparound porch or settle in by the fireplace on winter nights.

New York’s Hudson Valley boasts four beautiful seasons transforming Cucina year-round. The Barn, located next to the restaurant, is a restored 19th weddings and celebrations.
