    Very quiet, elegant space in a small town to have a delicious meal. Service was phenomenal. 10/10 recommend anyone wanting to try a local Italian place!

    I will say that my rating on Catello's has improved. The Manager took the time to call me, and apologize for our experience. This is rare, today! He wanted more feedback on our experience, and we had a great conversation. Douglas really cares about the quality of food & staff training. He assured me he would coach the staff & kitchen on what is expected of a fine dining experience. He graciously asked us to return & give them another opportunity. We will DEFINITELY do that based on Douglas going above & beyond to reach out to me, and several other diners from that same evening. Everyone can have an "off night" for sure! This was our 2nd time to Catello's in Pendleton. The first time was excellent. This time between an inept waitress, and "pork medallions" actually being VERY dry tough pork chops (2) for $32 along with a few green beans, as well as being served a mussel that had not opened during cooking - thus indicating it was not fresh - we were very disappointed. A worthwhile chef would not have even placed it on my plate. We told her the pork chops were the toughest meat we'd ever eaten and all she said was "sorry about that", and walked away. She didn't offer to replace them, or to offer another dish. She clearly was untrained on how to interact with customers. It wasn't just our table who had the tough pork, the table next to us had also ordered the same thing and had to ask for steak knives, just to cut them! Also, there was a "July Fight Inflation 20% off from 7/19 to 7/31" advertised on their FB page. We had ordered an Appetizer, Main Courses, Desserts & had ordered wine, as well. When we advised the waitress that we were participating in the "Fight Inflation" special, she said her co-worker told her it was only during the weekdays. It clearly did not indicate that on Facebook, and I tried to show her the page, so she would have correct information - but she just skittered away and wouldn't even look.

    First time to visit and we absolutely loved the food, ambiance, service, and the live music. We will go back for sure. Favorite food we had was the mushroom ravioli and fish tartare appetizer. The bread is excellent!

    Open table made a reservation for us at 9:00 pm and Catello’s closes at 9:00 pm When we arrived the staff kindly welcomed us even though the restaurant was closed and we enjoyed a graciously served full course meal. When I asked the staff if they had tables available for our party of 5 , earlier in the evening, they responded that they would have been Able to seat us earlier. Open table only offered me 9:00 pm when I tried to get an earlier time. Catello’s staff was wonderful and as always experienced a wonderful dinner despite the fact the restaurant was closed and the staff stayed over time to give us such a pleasant evening. Open table needs to fix their system that prevents reservations after the restaurant has closed Thank you Catello’s for a wonderful evening, I believe other restaurants would Have turned us away

    Great selection of wine. Our waiter was very knowledgeable on all of the dishes and wine we asked about. Service was outstanding and prices were reasonable for a fancy restaurant. I would 100% recommend trying this place out. The music was great. We went on a Tuesday night but I hear they have a pianist on busier days. Not a five star restaurant because of a few minor problems. There was 1 or 2 small gnat/flies that were bothering us and two small windows on the front of the building were boarded up and needed replaced.

    Had problem being seated when we arrived a few minutes early. Menu did not list side dishes although said there was an extra charge. Could not get a side of pasta at an Italian restaurant -- required payment for an entire entree to get just a small side of pasta. Food was satisfactory but not outstanding.

    Loved the white table cloths. Tatum our waitress was very nice. The bread was excellent as was their red ravioli sauce. The lamb chops were very good and the salad with a variety of olives was terrific! We will definitely be going back. Preferred this Italian restaurants much better than locally owned similar restaurants in the area. I definitely recommend Catello’s. Patrons, please dress appropriately!It’s a very nice restaurant with some class in a small town.

    We have been here once before (four years ago). When we returned to the area we were anxious to return. It was, once again, a memorable experience. My business partner and I ordered a starter and a main. We quickly learned that the starters are very large. My partner ordered the bruschetta and we agreed that it could have been a starter for four. I highly recommend the seafood pasta dish. The sauce was light and very flavorful. We'll be back in this area in two years ... already looking forward to it.

    We have been going to the Mozzarella Bar for years, so I don't like giving a so-so review. We used to love the place. Our side portion of potatoes was far too small. No veg included for steak and salmon?

    Last time we had dined at Catello's it was in the old smaller setup. Unaware of the major renovations when we arrived, needless to say we were in awe of the new look. Very pleasantly updated space, live music, amazing menu. I had the Ravioli Del Pescatore, Seafood ravioli filled with lobster, shrimp, and scallop. Served with mussels, clams, calamari, shrimp, cherry tomatoes, asparagus, and cooked in a white wine sauce, paired with a nice super Tuscan cabernet sauvignon, was absolutely amazing. We will be back!

    Food is good. A little too quiet, as in we heard the buzz of the lights all dinner long because there is no music and only one other couple there. Although it is a newly constructed room, it seems put together quickly and low quality construction materials were utilized. I am sure if the lights are dimmed and later at night that you won't notice. Wine or water were our only options, although we saw half empty 2Liters of pop as well. We live a mile away but probably won't go back.

    Excellent quality food, prepared and served exquisitely and with perfect timing...not too quickly and not too slowly. Service was flawless and dependable. No disappointments whatsoever...which has been our experience very consistently for the past 3 years. Catello's remains one of our most favorite places to eat.
