    It’s okay, but very expensive in comparison to food quality and service levels. Staff was earnest, but not trained in fine dining points of service.

    I took my niece out for a birthday lunch. We ordered a cheese and meat tray, which was very good; salads, which were way too salty; and desserts, which were excellent. Our service could have been more attentive, especially since there were only two groups in the restaurant, but our waitress was new and just learning. The overall experience was good but could be improved.

    Fantastic Experience and a True Hidden Gem! We have dined at the Catellos in Pendleton several times and happy to say that not only is the food every bit as fresh, authentic and consistently excellent at this new location. The atmosphere is upscale but comfortable and the selections of fresh pasta and his homemade burrata and mozzarella are Amazing. Among the very best restaurants in the city (and fortunately still a hidden gem). Definitely will be back every trip we have to Indy!

    We sat at the bar. The bartender was only fairly well informed. I asked that the salads be served on a plate as the "bowl" makes it impossible to eat a salad. My gluten free pasta was not aldente. The menu did not fairly explain that the filet with pasta meant that the filet was diced and mixed with the pasta. There was no pistachio gelato although it is listed on the menu. The bartender said they didn't make any that particular Monday. My friend ordered the Little Italy gelato which was to be served with caramel sauce but wasn't. The bartender brought out a low end commercial syrup which we rejected. Perhaps because it was a Monday night the staff just wasn't what it should be especially not given the prices.

    The ambiance and the background piano were the first thing to hit me. They were both very relaxing. Our waiter, Carlos was knowledgeable concerning the menu. He was polite and attentive. Most importantly, the food was excellent.

    Catello's is an Italian restaurant 'in need of some soul' and by that I mean there is no personality, no general manager on staff; they're understaffed; the extremely courteous waiters are dressed traditionally in black pants, white shirts/black vests but service is slow; took us almost 18 minutes to get pre-dinner cocktails. Their pastas tend to favor dishes with seafood and if you do not like 'al dente' pasta, tell the waiter to have the kitchen cook it a minute or 2 longer. We enjoy Catello's but unlike other privately owned places we go to, we've never seen any general manager, no one ever is present to visit tables and check on guests; the lonely hostess has to sit by herself in a kind of cordoned off 'vestibule' outside the restaurant itself. There is something off-putting and cold about Catello's and I cannot put my finger on it; and yet we've dined here probably 6 times. I won't give them a negative but rather 'yes with reservation.'

    Upscale Italian - white tablecloth, no red sauce dishes on the menu. Very good food. The house salad is one of the best I have ever tasted. Ravioli del Pescatore (seafood ravioli) excellent. Good gelato, surprisingly large serving. Will return.

    We had the cheese wheel pasta. It was delicious, but for the price ($80 - feeds 2 people) it would have been nice if they included a salad or vegetable with it. Pasta portion doesn’t seem very big, but totally filling and any more would have been overwhelming due to the intense flavor profile. Fun experience, but wouldn’t order that dish again. The Caprese Salad was fantastic and had house made mozzarella. Service was friendly, but a little slow. Definitely would go back if I was in the area.

    The food was extraordinary. particularly the seafood ravioli and lobster linguini; however, the brussel sprout salad was a bland disappointment. A more robust dressing would enhance it tremendously.

    My neighbor and I had our second dinner here, returning because the first experience was so great. We were both disappointed that the only veal offering was a 12 oz chop for $69! I think even in today’s world $69 for an entrée is too costly but also 12 oz of a meat serving is too much for most women. My only complaint was that the pasta dish I ordered, seafood linguine in olive oil, was way too salty, and I am not a salt free person. The seafood itself was not overly salty and very nice. We shared our concerns with management who offered us gift cards and were very receptive to listening. We declined the gift cards, restaurant’s are having a hard enough time staying in business. We just felt Mangement should be aware. We will return again, hoping this was just an off night.

    Just okay. I had heard the food was really good at the restaurant but we were disappointed with the quality for the price. We don't mind paying good prices if the quality is there. Best thing we ate was the calamari/shrimp/fish appetizer and raviolo funghi. Two entrees were dry with not enough sauce. Maybe we just choose wrong items to eat. Not sure if we will go back. Too many other great italian restaurants in Indy.

    The ambiance and service was top notch. The food was not at all what I expected. My veal dish and my guests fish were not prepared at the standard of a top restaurant. The pasta was excellent but the sauce was like a thick white sauce. Maybe we just ordered the wrong menu items…For the price, certainly a disappointment. Was recommended to me by friends but I can’t recommend.
