    Wonderful restaurant in a fun part of town. Small and intimate it reminded us of an old school NYC Italian restaurant. Highly recommend.

    Some of the food was very good, some was just ok. We sat upstairs which was nice and quiet, but the staff didn’t seem to be well trained. Maybe we expected too much, there’s been a lot of hype. It wasn’t a good sign that on a Friday night, it wasn’t full.

    Excellent food, excellent service! A fabulous experience!! Has meatballs, 2 different pastas, Sea Bass. Cocktails made at table! Don’t be afraid that they take your phone, they place in a small l pouch that you keep with you:)

    Upon making the reservation, we thought their announced policy of requiring men to wear jackets was classy. The web page also announced that the restaurant was a "cell free zone". We expected that this meant they discouraged use of patrons talking on their cell phones in the restaurant and we appreciated that we wouldn't hear other diners on their cell phones. Nothing prepared us for their interpretation of a "cell free zone" which was to insist we place our phone in a pouch that they locked and only they could open upon our departure. Had we known this in advance we wouldn't have booked the reservation. However, to book it we paid a $50 deposit and we were very hungry and had no idea where else in the area we could be seated quickly and that is the reason we didn't leave upon learning their policy. They claimed the reason for this was because they want their guests visiting and talking and not looking at their phones. That is their desired behavior control but this may not be what the customers want. We expected an honor system like some private clubs who ask you not to talk on your phones and in respect of the policy, you don't. Caterina forces their will on the customers. And, they are well aware that the phone locking is ineffective for those with Apple watches. Seating was very crowded downstairs and the cushions in the long bench along the wall had lost their density so the diner sinks into the cushion making the table uncomfortably high. We asked for another table and they gave us one upstairs where one waiter handled all the tables. The waiter was good and the best part of the restaurant. Food was average but very salty; prices were ok. We would have given the restaurant 3 stars but because of the Big Brother phone policy we only gave one star.

    Went immediately after they opened a few months back. The experience was much better this time around after they worked out the kinks. I'm a retired chef so should have known better. My wife had the shrimp dish again. It is a fabulous entree. Easily in our top 5 ever. Thanks for great service Conner. We will be back for my wife's birthday in December.

    This was our second time at Caterina’s and it was such a disappointment from the first time. The food was good but definitely not as good as the first time. The shocking part to me was the drop in service. During the meal our waiter just did not come back. We ran out if drinks and had to flag down another waiter to even get more water. I ordered a second cocktail that never got delivered, the waiter got my desert wrong so I got mine well after my husband was done with his. Definitely not worth the $350. Ck.

    When we got there we didn’t know about the no cell phone policy. It was fine and we were okay with it but the guy was kind of rude about us not knowing before coming. It was our first time. We actually liked the ambience of no cell phones. The food was okay and waiter was great.

    Parking was difficult as we chose the Dover Hotel valle" which the Dover Hotel didn't appreciate. You should park in the east parking lot and it will be easier and friendlier. Food and service were as good as it gets. Gotta love the Italian style. We ate for 4 hours.

    We celebrated at Caterina’s for our wedding anniversary. It was intimate and the ambiance was good. We enjoyed having our phones put away so we could focus on each other. The food was delicious and the size of the salad and appetizer were perfect for 2 to share without feeling like wanting more or feeling too full. We did a 4 course meal and left feeling satisfied but not too full. We would definitely return for another celebratory dinner!

    Visited for our first time on our 41st Anniversary. We had heard good things and they were true. Great food with real Italian flair. We had just returned from Italy a couple of weeks prior. Attentiveness without being overbearing. My only "negative" was that I had left a message for a return call the day of our reservation, and that never happened. I love capturing pictures of my wine bottles but having the cell phones "locked up" negated that, but it made for a great evening of conversation with friends.

    A truly unique experience; delicious food, beautiful representation, excellent service, unique atmosphere and attention to detail. Enjoyed meeting the Italian General Manager from Lake Como, Italy, a down to earth & topnotch gentleman. They really mean no cell phone usage, which was actually refreshing. This is upscale and you will pay for it. The servings cater to sharing, so be sure to try several, you will not be disappointed. Great evening, we'll return when we want a truly special experience

    Had a lovely early dinner with my parents and husband. Great service! Decor inside is very appealing, as was the not too loud, yet pleasing music. The small starter glass of rose prosecco was such a nice beginning to the evening. The well stocked cocktail trolley was quite entertaining to see roll by a few times, the servers defintiely had fun making all sorts of beautiful concoctions. Our three delicious salads were well presented and everyone enjoyed their entrees. Lobster Alison was perfectly cooked. Looking forward to stopping by the bar soon! Tables are a bit close together for Fort Worth, but not nearly close as most European restaurants! We did not mind having our phones put in pouches, just laughed at what we would need to research after dinner. Everyone in the restaurant was very well dressed-a refreshing sight to see.

    I did not read the fine print, so I didn’t know my husband had to wear a sports coat. They graciously offered him a Versace! We were seated very close to other people, I would have preferred a little distance between other diners. Our waiter was very attentive. He asked if we were celebrating anything and we told him my 60th birthday, but that was all that was mentioned about it - nothing special made out of it. The food and the wine were amazing!!! The restaurant manager helped us pick out a great bottle! I really enjoyed having our cell phones put away and enjoying the evening with each other!

    Caterina's is such a neat and unique environment. Our server was kind but also absentminded. The meatballs were amazing. The chicken and mushrooms are two of my favorite menu items. However, the pasta we had was so salty that we couldn't not eat it. We were told it was supposed to be that way. We were offered another dish, but passed. Overall, this restaurant is great and we will return.

    Started with a couple custom cocktails which come paired with small bites. We shared the Zucchini, Chopped Salad, and Rigatoni, wow, all three were great! While the Zucchini was really good, the Rigatoni with just the right spice level was out of this world. My wife had the Roasted Chicken which was as tender and as tasty as any chicken I've *ever* had. I ate the Lobster which comes served on Ravioli, what a treat. We capped it off with desert, and we highly recommend the Tiramisu. We have eaten, multiple times, at several of Tim Love's restaurants, and this may be our new #1. Can't say enough good things, will definitely be going back.
