Great Italian Food

Well every year we go to this restaurant and every year it is just the Best Itailain food with no variation. A must go to place even if it's a little out of the way.

Went there for my birthday: thank goodness someone made reservations for us because I have never seen a restaurant so busy on a Tuesday night! We brought our own bottle of wine (some wineries will give you a voucher to wave the corking fee) and had the burrata (yum!) to start, then the rabbit pasta and the yellow tail...truly amazing...

This is the first time we come back to Catelli's since the owner's children took over. The service was excellent. We brought a great wine and the cork went bad. They took care of it and we were able to enjoy it. The steak our friend ordered wasn't quite what he wanted and they took care of it. They were... More

We were passing through Geyserville on our way from Mendocino to St. Helena. A lovely gentleman we met in Mendocino recommended we stop at Catelli's for lunch on the way. Frankly, we were blown away by this place. The decor, with golden wood tables, is a standout. The waitress was attentive and helpful. But the food, oh the food, was... More

Why did we put off going to this restaurant? Today we came to our senses! The wait staff is phenomenal, starting with the host. Our reservations, made by our hotel staff, were for an outside table, but we thought we preferred an indoor one. The host showed us to an outside table, to an inside one, and gave us a... More

I won't say my last meal was one of the best, because every visit is the best. Top notch pasta, meatballs, and service. And serving local wines is a definite plus.

This restaurant is a regular dining place for us when visiting the area. Great menu with wonderful dishes but beware, the portions are very large. We leave with boxes of food and even reheated, they taste wonderful. Perfect location to rest , relax and enjoy a delicious meal between wine tastings .

Historic four corner, one stop sign village with a great little Italian restaurant with something for everyone. Had great fresh seafood from Bodgea, but they also have traditional Italian dishes. All of it made in house. Definitely a dinner restaurant for couples and families. The wait staff were wonderful which made this a very special place. I'm a local and... More

Catelli's Italian restaurant has exceptional food in an unpretentious setting in the small village of Geyserville, CA, in the heart of the Alexander Valley wine appellation. It is also a favorite watering hole for locals and features some very fine local wines. Catelli's also has a separate event space where you can party and celebrate with your friends. Catelli's is...

Wife and I made an early resi on a Tuesday night in March. Warm welcome by the man who I believe is co-owner. Sat right down. Excellent, excellent food. Wife had the lasagna, I had the chicken sauté. It was excellent--killer polenta, and I loved the homemade mushroom sauce. The dish was very homey and down to earth and tasty.... More
