DELCIOUS!!!!!

We had an amazing meal at Catelli's in Geyserville. The food was amazing (lasagna was the best EVER). Our waitress Sophia (we called her Bill) was funny and a great sport with our terrible sense of humor. Had a wonderful experience there and would definitely go back!

It's hard to say what's best here, the food or the service. The service is consistently friendly, knowledgeable, prompt, and courteous. They seem to always anticipate what we need without appearing to hover. The food is also consistently delicious and appealing to the eye. The burrata appetizer should not be missed. Cocktails are also outstanding. The patio is inviting with... More

May 10 In a small town of Geyserville, which is about the size of where we are staying, Cloverdale, is an outstanding Italian, family-run restaurant, Catelli's. It is not ostentatious, screaming "Italian." The place is subtle and comfortable. We were offered a big booth. Do order the Domenica's sauce with the optional meat balls. It is sooo good. My wife...

I was speaking into my I-phone 'restaurants near me' while driving towards Geyserville and this one popped up. When I read that Guy Fieri had been there we found a parking spot and it did not disappoint. The bruschetta was great but the spaghetti was excellent along with the few bites of ravioli from my dining partner! The food was... More

Had read about the restaurant and stopped in with no reservations. Got there about noontime and seated right away by a cheerful hostess. Started with the most delicious brucciatta with prosciutto. Have to order this! I had the ravioli (1/2 lemon sauce and 1/2 tomato) that was delicious. My wife got pasta. Both are still raving about our choices. Server... More

Wow, wow, wow! The lasagna was the best I have ever had! Very thin home made noodles with a delicious sauce. The homemade ravioli was also amazing. Really outstanding food! Great service too!

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
