Fabulous service. Delicious food and drinks.
Very enjoyable dining experience.
Excellent food and drinks. The staff was very attentive. We would definitely go back every time we are in San Diego.
Wow, so surprised
When we walked in for Mother’s Day dinner I was not expecting much but this place really put out some tasty food and great service!
Thank you!!! It was an amazing experience as always. Will be back soon
Brigitte, our server, was fantastic. Really made our experience. Food was terrific as well. All the reviews did not lie one bit.
Delicious food and drinks, great patio dining and fun atmosphere. Other than our clearly disinterested server it was a great dinner.
Great food and wonderful service. The shrimp risotto was amazing and I finished my meal with an espresso martini. Even though it was a gloomy evening, the view was great! Would go back and will be recommending to anyone looking for dinner with a view.
A very nice restaurant, clean facility and minimalist menu. The service was great. I’ll be back.
Great food & service!
As always they deliver great food, great service and us with a smile. Great place!!!
Great experience. Family get together. Great staff, service, menu selection and ambience. I had eggs, salad and soup. All delicious. My only recommendation is to cook the beans in the soup more - they were too al dente. Others had waffles, main dishes, eggs and cauliflower snd they loved it.
I really wanted to love this meal. This was our first time visiting, and everything we ordered was just rich with no nuance. Flatbreads were nothing to write home about, linguini so rich that it was difficult to get through, I don't know. I expected more. Off to explore other spots, we won't be back to Catania.
Everything on the menu is good, and a lot of it is great. Wonderful atmosphere. We have been here five times now.
Another truly memorable experience. Out of our nine night stay in La Jolla, we had the pleasure to dine at Catania on three occasions - it's that good. Food, service and ambience all rate a 10!
Absolutely loved everything! Will be back soon!
Excellent service and food.
Booked this reservation for our anniversary a few weeks early & had requested an outdoor table. When we arrived at the reservation time, we were told there was no outdoor tables available currently, and we could either wait, or be seated inside. We went with the inside option. Not getting to sit where I had hoped is the only complaint.
Food was DELICIOUS & service was great!!!
The restaurant has a great view and perfect to watch the sunset from the patio. Service was great and the food exceptional. Need reservation.
Everything was delicious. This was our first time here. The agnolotti and nutella semifreddo are not to be missed. The chopped salad and artichoke pizza were also fantastic. My husband says the semifreddo was the best dessert he has ever had. Our server was great and made our evening special. Will be back soon and often.
Great service and the food was fabulous - don’t miss the octopus
The service was amazing from the entrance greeting to the goodbye. The food was very good and their cocktail selections were great. Beautiful view, service, and food....you cant go wrong.
We were able to sit outside and enjoy the beautiful sunset. The service was good, the pastas we had recommended by our server was delicious! Will be repeat customers!
Wonderful, warm service with a view and some of the best appetizers of Arancini and roasted cauliflower we have had! The shrimp risotto w tomato and chili was balanced and delicious and the umami agnolotti was decadent and buttery! We capped the meal off with a tasty Cafe italiano and Averna disgestif. Highly recommend for a creative and satisfying meal!
The service and food superb!
Delicious food and beautiful ambiance!
We love Catania!!! Was so excited to go this weekend and it didn’t disappoint! Even got to sit outside with an ocean view! The staff is always so friendly and food is amazing!
Absolutely beautiful property with some ocean views and amazing service. Good food - we enjoyed the meatballs, chopped salad and the breakfast pizza. And a nice bottle of wine. Thoroughly enjoyed!
Stevie and the entire staff were knowledgeable and attentive. The food was amazing.
The service and food were excellent. It was a bonus to hqve a perfect sunset as well.
This is one of my favorite restaurants in San Diego! I always bring my friends and family here when they visit or if they just simply haven’t gone into this awesome restaurant before. The service is always impeccable and the view is amazing. The. Pizza. Is. Amazing. They always have a fun seasonal pizza that is different from anything I’ve had anywhere else. Go check them out!
The management and staff were wonderful and the food was amazing.
This is our third time back... Best Branzino (sp?) we’ve ever had. Salads and pizza fresh and delicious. Wine list lacking in selection and high priced as is the corkage. Wait staff is consistently lovely .
We’ll be back.
Sat inside... beautiful and private. Great service and lovely food!
Delicious food. Great patio views. Good service.
Very attentive staff and good service. Food was on point.
The food and service were phenomenal. I’ll dream about the Tagliatelle Portofino, focaccia with cheese, and roasted cauliflower!! Our server Brigitte went above and beyond. Can’t wait to go back!
Beautiful view, great dinner
Catania was a perfect place to eat. We decided to eat at the outside bar overlooking the street with gorgeous views of the ocean and sunset. The food was impeccable from starters to desert and the service was top notch. We had great drinks and never once felt like they were rushing us out. Highly recommend for date night or even a quaint place to bring the family.
