Campagna is located on the grounds of Richard Gere's Bedford Post Inn at 954 Old Post Road, Bedford, NY 10506 in Westchester County.
From Campagna: "The signature fine dining restaurant by the Altamarea Group will serve well-known Italian cuisine as well as seasonal dishes focused on the farmer's bounty and local ingredients. A main highlight of the dining experience will be the large wood fire grill in addition to a selection of our handmade pastas. A la carte dining as well as a pre-fixe menu will be available by Chef Devin Bozkaya, Executive Chef PJ Calapa and Award-Winning Chef & Owner Michael White.
"Campagna will serve Italian cuisine reflecting the beautiful country setting of the Inn and highlighting seasonal and local ingredients. Executive Chef PJ Calapa, of Altamarea Group properties Ai Fiori & Costata, will oversee Campagna. The kitchen will be helmed daily by Chef di Cuisine Devin Bozkaya, formerly of the Inn at Little Washington.
"The main dining room will host guests at either the Patio or Library sections. Both areas will provide the warmth of the country setting with a subtle underlying elegance. Overall, the design changes served to invigorate the space but maintain its original essence. The redesigned Post Bar will be at the center and serve as the primary bar for all the restaurants and the Inn. Guest attire is comfortable and casual.
"Campagna’s relaxed atmosphere will allow for a simple weeknight dinner, a more elegant occasion or a special event. Flexibility in dining is reflected in the ease of the menu options offering a selection of antipasti, pastas, pesce, carne and vegetable contorini.. At Campagna, you should feel as if you are at someone’s home for dinner, eating food inspired by the seasonality of the local environment in the company of family and friends. In this regard, Campagna is proud to source its produce from local farms and vendors whose offerings will be highlighted on the menu.
"Menu highlights include Panzanella di Passera, fluke crudo, tomato confit, castelvetrano olives and croutons, Granchio jumbo lump crab, almonds, golden raisins and crème fraiche vinaigrette, and Insalata di Astice nova scotia lobster, celery root caponata, black truffle and cervil. In typical Altamarea Group fashion, all pastas will be hand made on premise. Pasta selections include Creste Nero shrimp, squid, scallop, calabrian chile, tarragon and Rotolo Bolognese blanco, kale and parmigiano. Entrée selections include Astice lobster fricassee, hen of the woods mushrooms, parsnip, pearl onion and Pollo half chicken, pomodoro, cremini mushroom, polenta, olives and ricotta salata. Dessert selections by Pastry Chef Jim Eckler will also be reflective of the seasonality of the local area. Sample items include Crèma di Mela cinnamon custard, slow roasted apple, smoked maple gelee, honey gelato and Torta di Limon meyer lemon jelly roll, yogurt mousse, lemon confit, meyer lemon thyme sorbet."

Outdoor dining on patio
The word is
Although Campagna is located on the Bedford Post Inn's beautiful grounds and offers an attractive country ambiance and dining space, we find many complaints about the disappointing food and small portions at extremely high prices.
