The food is so fabulous, clearly made with skill and love! Prices not something I could afford every day, but definitely worth it! And besides, the servings are such that there was sufficient for next day's lunch! The mingling of flavors was wonderful, and everything so fresh! The manager is gregarious and welcoming. We will return!

Excellent authentic Italian fare. Wife had the lasagna and I had the spaghetti fritta de mare. Fresh made pasta and high quality ingredients. Highly recommend.

Small town gem! Genuine Italian. Even comes with an accent!! Food is phenomenal. Steaks are so much more flavorful than the usual high end steakhouses in Indy. The mussels and homemade mozzarella are wonderful appetizers. We try to bring someone new each time we visit and invariably they return on their own with someone else. A great getaway for the northeast side!!

A thousand times I will recommend this place! I have never tried authentic Italian food so I was in for quite the adventure. Our server was very knowledgeable on the food and new exactly how to talk us into ordering dessert! I highly appreciated our experience and am looking forward to visiting this place in the future!

Good food as usual. Seafood pasta a bit salty and don’t understand why chocolate chip cannolis need to be flavored with fruit peel? Server was very nice but needs significant training to understand meals and wines. Did not acknowledge anniversary occasion as noted on reservation. Not the usual server. Review may sound weak but only because other meals and service here were so exceptional. Will definitely go back and try again but hope all the recognition and business volume doesn’t cause quality of food and service to go down.

Very good service. Our waiter was attentive and friendly. The main course was good but the ceasar salad was quite bland. The dressing had very little flavor and the cheese was also lacking in flavor. The fresh pasta with scallops and shrimp was delicious though !

My husband and I had a wonderful time dining at Catello's. The food and the service were outstanding. My husband is still talking about the Cannoli he had for dessert. We have already recommended this restaurant to family and friends.

When you go to a big box Italian restaurant you get ok food and you pay for it. I know it comes out of a microwave bag but you don't see it and you feel somewhat satisfied.

At Caterllo's Mozzarella Bar you get the experience found in only the best Italian restaurants! Very home cooked and highly ethnic delicacies that require a professional to prepare. the host was from Italy and make me feel Iike I was there! My meal cost more than your average big box but I got to experience something new for a few dollars more. I ate swordfish and I LOVED IT!

I have been to Catello's a handful of times for lunch and dinner, and the food is always good, and the service is excellent. Took my daughter for her birthday...her first time...and she loved it. It is small, quaint place. When the place is full, it can be a little noisy...but that is ok. Highly recommended.

Excellent food, we are of Sicilian heritage and jaded against most Italian places since being raised on the home-cooked real deal, but very impressed by this small yet elegant restaurant. My mother’s 78th birthday was made by the lunch we had there , she said the bread reminded her of the bread her grandfather used to make and give to the kids in the neighborhood in Indianapolis south side in the 40’s.
5 stars!

We've been to Catello's for dinner somewhere between 15 and 20 times since they opened. It is, without question, our favorite Italian cuisine. We have had guests more often than not, and even they agree that it is simply the best Italian we have had the pleasure to experience. Actually there has been only one other place that we liked better. That was Enoteca Pinchiorri, in Florence, Italy. That was in 2008, and we'll never forget it. But for Indiana, Catello's the one. Seriously.

We were disappointed this time with both the quality and quantity of food. We did not see the owner so maybe that is the issue. The salad had little taste, and the pasta dish was light on the sea food as part of our order. We have had other good meals here, so I do hope this is a one off experience. But, I will not recommend it till I have a better experience.

Authentic southern Italian. Out of the way, but not too far. Small place so reservations are key.
