We enjoy Italian food. This was our first visit. The style of this establishment’s pasta preparation is not something that we have had before this visit. It was very al Dante.

Unbelievable food, service, and atmosphere. Wow! I highly recommend. Best Authentic Italian ever. I had the dinner special ravioli... to die for. This Pistachio tiramisu was also one for the ages. You are missing out if you don’t come here!

This was our first time @ this lovely authentic Italian restaurant— and we were delighted!
Katja was our server and she was outstanding— incredibly familiar with the menu.
Both of our meals were simply delicious!
It’s a bit of a drive— but we will definitely return. Our meals surpassed our expectations! Wonderful menu and equally excellent wine list!
Thank you for an outstanding meal and dining experience!

It was a lovely evening. We celebrated my sister and brother-in-law 6 year wedding anniversary. The food was excellent and the wine was highly recommended by our waitress. The evening was topped off with a special greeting from Catello! We were so excited to hear about the growth of the restaurant. I can’t wait for our next dinner.

Small quiet gem of a restaurant. Food is hands down some of the best I have eaten even at higher priced restaurants. Everything is very fresh and you can tell is handmade. Thought and care has been taken to generate the menu. Would highly recommend and will definitely be back.

This is now my go-to restaurant.

I am italian, movede in the states not long ago, and i think this is one of the best italin restaurants you can find that really follow our tradition and culture.

Take the Pistachio Tiramisù, it’s outstanding.

Located in downtown Pendleton, it is a quaint location for very good Italian food. The food is prepared by a chef that knows exactly how a dish should taste. So simple with ingredients, yet so complex with flavors. Highly recommend. Favorites were the sliced FRESH cheese and meats, ravioli funghi, and probably the table Best was the Fruitti de Mare dish. There were a couple of misses on food. Service was second to none! Very friendly and knowledgeable about the dishes

Catello's is a very small quaint italian restaurant, which make you feel like you are
not in Indiana but a small place in Italy. Food is excellent and service is very good.
All pastas and cheeses made in house as probably everything else.

Service was very good and food was excellent. They make their own pasta and cheeses. The only thing I would change is to offer more adult beverages for those who don't enjoy wine.

We went for the first time for our anniversary. My wife has to be gluten free, and they delivered! Both of our dishes were delicious and well presented. And the house made mozzarella..... It may have been our first time, but it won’t be our last.

Every experience at Catellos is perfect. Cozy atmosphere, wonderful service and food to die for. Every food item is FRESH. Pasta is home made and so he the cheese and all sauces. If you want authentic Italian you won't be sorry!

I would 100% recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for a fantastic dining experience.
I think perhaps they were a little short staffed because we had one server to the whole dining room. Never once did we feel neglected or forgotten. She was a rock star.

Outstanding food, clearly made with care and pride. Cute setting, very cozy, and they are working on a significant expansion. The fettucine al filetto is wonderful. Best gluten-free pasta I've had in a restaurant, by the way. This restaurant is a gem of our small town.
