    Considering the ongoing lack of willing workers that are available our experience was just fine. They were overwhelmed by the New Years Eve crowd mainly because of several groups camping out at their tables. Our server (bartender), Stephanie was awesome and cared about making sure we were happy.

    Appalling in all aspects! One of the worst culinary experience of my life, and I’ve been to a few restaurants in my lifetime. We booked a reservation for New Year’s eve dinner to find out the Castleton location was closing and the whole night went downhill from there. Indecent wait, subpar food, pathetic service. Avoid at all costs the Pendleton location. Despicable all around!!!

    This was our first visit. We were greeted by the hostess and told we had to wait a few minutes because people were lingering at their tables. I believe we were seated within 5 minutes of our reservation time. During that 5 minutes a LOT of people began arriving and filled up the entry way. Heard lots of complaining about not being seated at reservation times. Also had 2 different couples come out of the small room to the left of reception complaining about how cold the room was. We were ultimately seated in that room and could confirm that every time the restaurant front door opened it shot a burst of cold air into that room. It was cold however we overlooked it. One couple got up and walked out. Our server, Katja, as well as the food, were the definite shining stars of our experience. We will try Catello's again. Just maybe not on New Year's Eve again.

    We arrived and sat for 20+ minutes and never had a server come to the table. We were sat by the door that opened and closed all the time. We went to the front desk and requested reseating as I was very cold and just got over a virus. They refused to reseat us. When we decided to just leave there were 20 people out front with reservations and waiting to be seated…10 more people outside. The woman at front desk was very rude and told people if they were not happy they could just leave. They had clearly overbooked the restaurant and had insufficient wait staff that were totally overwhelmed. When we checked in there was a very unfriendly sign that said a party of 2 should not stay more that 45 minutes. Of course, we never saw a wait staff after 20 minutes when we were there. This is our first visit to this restaurant in about 1 year. We will not be back!

    We dined at Catello's Italian Art Cuisine Indianapolis location with two other couples on New Year's Eve (12/31/22). All of the avaiable tables were filled. Much to our surprise we learned that they were closing the Indianapolis location the following day. To their credit, the quality of the food was still very good and the staff, who were largely faced with losing their jobs at the close of the evening, were friendly and very attentive. The food service was slow but that was entirely attributable to being understandably understaffed. Accordingly, we highly recommend that you try their Pendleton, Indiana location, which we intend to do!

    staff were totally overwhelmed by the number of guests, totally overbooked, seated in a very noisy room, no service, not even water for 20 min, then told by hostess that if we didn't like it we should leave, which is what we did and will not go back

    Angela was taking names of people who had reservations at the entrance. We, along with several other parties, had reservations at 7:45 and evidently the earlier seated parties were still lingering at their tables causing a large crowd at the entrance waiting to get in. Angela got frustrated and became very condescending with all of us, saying that if we don't like it we can leave and go down the street! She was very rude and projected a very bad image for your restaurant. Your espresso/coffee machine was broken and we were unable to get coffee after our meal - not good for New Year's Eve.

    Shrimp scampi was bland. Three of the clams or mussels in the mixed seafood pasta were not open. Never should have been served. The tomatoes on Caprese salad lacked flavor. Hardly any basil on the salad. I loved the atmosphere of main dining room but food was not impressive especially given the price point.

    New Year’s Eve dinner for two. Service (Brie), food, and ambiance very nice. Only negative was being told after we were seated our table was good for 1 hour due to holiday and other reservations. Didn’t feel rushed but aware of time and checked my watch a couple of times. A big part of timing is restaurant service. Will return.

    Just really disappointed. As of late December 2022, the setting and prices at Catello’s don’t match the experience or expectations. It’s a beautiful place fitting of a nice meal. But there was no host at the door (we waited in the lobby for 5+ minutes before finding someone behind the bar) and our server lacked the training required of an upscale restaurant. There was no attempt to welcome our party or guide through the menu. A young child was allowed to run around the restaurant, jumping in booths and stopping at the three occupied tables. It was frustrating to have heard high praise, make a reservation for a special holiday meal a month-plus in advance and then get a dining experience easily outclassed by any chain restaurant in Indy. Silver lining: The food was decent and arrived quickly. But that doesn’t warrant coming back.

    First visit, seated against a half wall. Bar TV had TMZ on. It was in my field of view. :( The lamb was blend, or undercooked. It didn't taste like lamb. No one asked if we liked the food. The other two dishes were great, but not reason enough to come back.

    This was my first visit to Cattalo’s Italian restaurant and it did not disappoint. The food was extraordinary and service was more than one could expect. The decor is lovely, complete with soft piano music. They make their own pasta, have a fresh delicious selection of seafood, and make their own gelato. I had a lamb dish and it was cooked to perfection. I’m sorry I didn’t know about this restaurant sooner. It is just west of Allisonville Road on 82nd Street. We have already made reservations to return.

    Friend and I dined there day after Thanksgiving. I had the lasagna and my friend had the raviola with walnut sauce. Excellent experience. Food was delicious and service was flawless. We only wanted single glasses of wine. Catello's had a good selection of wines by the glass. Price for the meal was very reasonable.

    Very pasta-heavy food lineup (they make their own in-house, including GF options) - all priced befitting the ambience, which is elegant, and the servers were top notch. Sadly all of us found the sauces to be a bit overdone (tomato sauce of arancini and lasagna was quite acidic/sharp). Other than the sauces, the foods were prepared well and seemed of excellent quality. The gelato, also home made, was top notch. With the chef being from Naples we had hoped for pizza options but they are apparently only available at lunch. If we return (which is borderline) we might try some of the seafood options, but this was a case where we'd hoped to appreciate the food as much as we did the ambience and service, and unfortunately just didn't.

    Bad family experience. Reserved a table for 8 with family in from out of town. One child is very picky, so we reviewed the online menu to make sure there were items he wanted. When we were seated we were short one menu and two sets of silverware. The menu we were given when we asked for one more matched the one online but not the other 7. This was not noticed until ordering when we figured out everything the one child selected was not available that night. He orders an alternative from the correct menu but we then find out that was a "typo" on the new menu. We ordered drinks but after 20 minutes they come back and tell us that they are out of a crucial ingredient and half of us can't get the drinks we ordered. So, we ordered new ones, took another 20 minutes to get them. No one ordered wine. We had two wine glasses each along with water glasses and our cocktail glasses on a crowded round table of eight. When appetizers delivered (1 hour and 15 minutes after arrival) server rearranged the glasses to create a fascinating barrier between us and the food. We also didn't get fresh plates. Our bread plates were coated in oil/vinegar because that is how they do the bread course. My wife, while trying to reach around her wall of glasses, drops her fork on the floor by accident. Despite two people actively delivering dishes at that time, no one offered to replace it. We had to ask for new plates and for the unused wine glasses to be removed. They did it for everyone BUT my wife. During dessert I ordered espresso (this is supossed to be an authentic Italian resaurant, so espresso, right?). No, machine has not been working well for the past week or so but they will try. Result, lukewarm espresso delivered with a 10 inch long dessert spoon (like you use in a tall ice cream float) because no one can find the espresso spoons, which probably explains why it is at room temperature. Overall, I did NOT impress my out of town family.
