Catello's Mozzarella Bar
We went for the first time on Friday, and took friends back for another visit on Sunday!
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.
Great food, great atmosphere, all in a small, cozy place.
I am so grateful a friend recommended Catello’s. It’s authentic, friendly, cozy, and we are fast becoming regulars! Soon we will be greeting everyone by name!
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 !
Great small local restaurant. Excellent food, attentive service, good wine choices. A little noisy when busy.
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.
Great place for authentic Italian food and a quiet date night.
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!
A hidden gem! Fabulous, authentic food!
Best restaurant in central Indiana. Customer service is subperb!
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.
Recommend by a friend, so glad we went! My goal is to be greeted by name in the near future! Authentic, timely, appropriately priced, not rushed, cool ambiance, great food and wine. Maybe lunch tomorrow!
We had friends in town from California and wanted them to experience the amazing food at Catello's. They loved everything from the salads to the tiramisu!!
Authentic Italian cuisine and healthy ingredients. You cannot miss it !
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.
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.
Amazing authentic Italian food
I celebrated my birthday there. It was absolutely wonderful. Catello’s never disappoints!
My husband and I went for our anniversary dinner on a Saturday evening. The service was fabulous and the food was beyond delicious! Our overall experience was great! We will definitely be back!
Fantastic dinner! All fresh food, attentive/friendly service, quiet/inviting atmosphere, and the best tomato sauce I've ever had!
Wonderful meal and atmosphere. Very European
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.
Excellent, authentic Italian cuisine. Intimate ambiance. Friendly staff.
Truly unique experience. We travel from Hamilton County to introduce our friends to the restaurant any chance we have. Quaint authentic Italian food with such a personal touch. Dishes are always hot and predictably favorful. Celebrated a special birthday with 16 people without a glitch. Anyone who wants to get away from the city and the chains should try Catello's!
We had a wonderful evening with great service and excellent recommendations. We will be back frequently. Thank you.
Great place and fun!!
Food was very good. Worth the drive
It feels like home!
We love this place. Always feel welcome, and food and service are superb. This is real Italian. We have had several items on the menu and all are great.
Fabulous food, wonderful service. Can’t wait to go back!
Exceptional service and quality of food was phenomenal. The atmosphere made for a perfect date, not too loud and very comfortable. The staff was highly educated and made great recommendations. I will absolutely be back.
Just wonderful and love the food !!
A European dining experience in the midwest. Love it!
Wonderful dining experience. Everything was delicious and the service was superb. Timing of the courses was perfect.
Great as always. That’s why we keep coming back.
Excellent food and great service! Very affordable as well!
