Phenomenal food!!

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.

Great food and atmosphere. They have a unique vibe which allows for this venue to accommodate all sort of different groups, from the couple with a bottle of wine to a large family gathering. The food is excellent!

We drifted north of Healdsburg and found Catelli's, a restaurant with great food, a relaxed atmosphere and excellent value! The service was friendly and professional, while the food was delicious and ample. I give a very good for cuisine, but the overall rating is excellent given the value.

My husband and I spent one night in Healdsburg and had seen this restaurant featured on Triple D so we thought we'd drive up the 101 a bit a try it. All I can say is WOW! Found a parking space right out front and that was only the beginning of a great experience. They had patio dining, but we... More

Hidden away in little Geyserville, this is a great, not very well kept secret. Really good Italian food, good atmosphere, attentive friendly service. No negatives for me. The portions were generous, came home with enough for another meal. We sat on the patio, very pleasant on a warm evening. This place gets busy, especially on weekends, so I would recommend... More

Catelli's has a new Happy Hours on the patio bar from 4-6 Tues - Friday! Special drinks and bites $3, $5 & $7. We had wings and tacos - VERY YUMMY! Awesome value and super food and drink not to mention their beautiful outdoor patio! We love this place and go almost weekly.

Italy meets CA. Best ingredients fresh and delicious. Chicken parm best ever made w basil Brattain and polenta w smokey mozzarella. Fresh pasta made daily w non genetically modified wheat. Great gnocchi. We did not realize that owner Dominica Catelli is a celebrity chef of sorts... But this restaurant clearly is a labor of love and it shows in every... More

The service was very attentive, and 5 of the 6 of us had a great experience. One of a party ordered the chicken parm and the chicken was overcooked. I had the clams and spagetti.... More

Frequent customer, though they make you feel more like family. Excellent contemporary Italian with traditional dishes at the core of their menu. Can't think of a better place to take a friend, if you're a visitor, a local, or just meeting friends for drinks and a bite to catch up. Favorite dish? The ravioli's are #1. But just as good...

Geyserville is always a surprise. Looks like a deserted country town until you notice there seem to be too many cars parked. And Catelli's is another surprise. Walk in to what looks like a quiet bar and you find a great drinking spot opening out to a restaurant and then to an arte deco courtyard replete with ornate black and... More
