Stunning food

Amazing restaurant in the small town of Geyserville. Freshly made pasta, local ingredients, friendly staff. One of the best (albeit a little small) pasta dishes I've ever had!

The first night we had clams over linguini. It was very good. The second night I had just the clams in the broth. It was so salty I could hardly eat it. I really think chefs should cut back on the salt and let people add their own if they want more.

We went to Catelli's for a special night and had high hopes. The outdoor patio is lovely and has plenty of heaters to keep the chill away. We enjoyed some good wine and waited for our dinner......and waited.....we watched a party of 12 get seated, eat and leave before we got served. After 2 hours we finally got our dinners... More

We were there on a Tuesday night around 7. The place was jammed. We waited 30 minutes for a table, which is ok. I read the reviews about the garlic French bread and ordered some. We were served a French bread with sun-dried tomato butter, good but not to die for. Then the server brings the actual garlic bread, kind... More

After many trips to the area, we finally remembered to make a reservation for Catelli's on a Saturday and requested the sought out patio. You enter through a yellow door of an old brick building and you think this is going to be a small place. But they have a good size inside dining area and then on to the... More

Catelli's is a family-owned Italian restaurant in the small town of Geyserville in northern Sonoma County. Everything on the extensive menu is house-made from family recipes, using locally sourced meat and produce. The setting is intimate and comfortable, with a great mixologist behind the bar and, as you would expect, an excellent wine list, even if you order by the... More

If you have never been to Geyserville or Catellis in Geyserville then you are in for a treat. This small town has blossomed recently with some nice tasting rooms and restaurants. Catellis is "comfort food" to me. Pasta dishes are amazing, my favorite is the Lasagna. This is made with homemade lasagna pasta so thin there are 9 ( maybe)... More

This place had the most amazing food I have ever eaten in my life. The lasagna and the beet salad were spectacular, not to mention the corkage fee is waived if you purchase wine from a local merchant. I cannot wait to return.
