    Gnocchi was too dense. Waiter offered us a bottle of wine since 2 of us were drinking Chardonnay. We said would just do a glass. He still brought us a bottle Best thing was the arugula salad

    Made reservations on Friday for Sat evening for 730 got there and checked in and said 30-40 min wait went back 40 min later and still another 30 min wait!! So we decided to dine else where! Someone needs to control reservations better and not allow so many plus add a private party which didn’t help at all with the problem.. So hopefully the next time we book we will actually be able to be seated and not have to go somewhere else!!!! Will try one more time!!
    Catello's Italian Art Cuisine - PendletonResponded on February 3, 2024
    Hello Abby I want to express my regret and deep apologies for what happened on Saturday evening regarding your reservation. It had never happened to us before having to make people who had reservations wait so long. The situation got out of hand, having a party in the room next door which took longer than expected and so did the diners. I don't like to rush our loyal and new customers who come to dine with us. But this prevented us from managing the reservations as best as possible. We must pay more attention to this for next time and absolutely avoid the expectations of the people who make the reservation. I apologize to all of you again and are deeply sorry. I would be happy to send you or keep a gift card here at the restaurant to make up for our disservice at least a little. Catello

    Heard great things about this place on IG from traveling foodie. So we made the 30 min drive to go. Got there at 6:45 for a 7pm reso. Waited in a very cramped lobby. Felt like a sardine. Was pouring rain. Hostess was on the phone for a while and then a person before me was making reservations which took a while. Finally was greeted and told her it was our first time. She said we are in for a treat. Lobby area - that equipment in front needs to be replaced with chairs for people to wait. She mentioned they took a bunch of walk ins that were holding tables up for those with reservations. When we were finally asked to be seated at 7:30, she was going to put us at the first table right next to people standing. Last thing I want to do is have peoples butts in our faces. Need to move that partition to block that. So we waited another 5 mins for another table. One down from the one we didn’t want. We sat for 8 mins without someone taking our drink order. We had plenty of bread and water. The waitress was nice but unknowable about the wine so had to keep asking her boss. Once we got the salads they were decent. Didn’t wow me. The food came. The seabass was very good. My husbands lasagna was not hot. More lukewarm. He didn’t ask for another one because he had just had it and didn’t want to wait any longer. Would I go back? No probably not. First impressions mean a ton.

    very quiet here so im not sure this is a good place to "celebrate" vocally. theres opera playing, beautiful. food was on point. my friends got the cheese wheel thing which i had never seen before and yielded good pasta! all of their pasta is homemade I think that's really cool.

    Love the atmosphere. Very quite relaxing and upscale. Great for a celebration or date night. Food is always amazing, but sad to see they removed our two favorite dishes (gnocchi sorrentina and Gorgonzola steak).

    Always an amazing experience at Catello’s! I feel like we are in New York City or San Francisco anytime we enter his restaurant. The food is amazing. And of course the service is unbeatable.. My husband’s birthday celebration was so special. This is a true small town gem.

    I was very disappointed that they only serve beer and wine. The other problem was they charged me for bread?! What? Charged for bread? I asked for a second serving of it however, if they charge for the second serving that should have been told to me. Lastly, the portions are very small. Seemed like half portions. The atmosphere was very nice but the server was mediocre at best. I will possibly try again, but be not sure?

    It is always a treat to come here. The staff is very friendly and accommodating. The food is superb. We had the seafood special last Wednesday. It was outstanding. We could not remember any meals we had in Italy that were comparable. The desserts are not to be missed. It seems as if Julia Child is in the kitchen making them. How fortunate we are to have this wonderful restaurant in our midst.

    After seeing Renee Fleming's "Cities That Sing Venice," we decided to come to Catello's for dinner. It was the perfect choice. The evening's special with a scallop that had caviar on top looked like something one might have seen at the fine venues Renee Fleming visited in the film. How fortunate we are to have this restaurant available to us. The desserts alone are worth the trip.

    This is simply the best Italian restaurant outside of NYC that I have ever been to. It's authentically Italian, and a wonderful time. We had the Salmon Tartare with Burrata, we shared a Ceasar Salad (crisp, fresh, and house-made dressing), and then enjoyed the Cheese Wheel Pasta (the rich ACTUAL Parmesan cheese, crisp juicy Guanciale, and a whisper of Black Truffle oil).
