Catania delivered for my team! We had a table for 10 and they worked with me on a preset, family style meal and it was perfection.

We made it for the tail in of happy hour with a good red wine and delicious salami plate. We were able to catch sunset on the ocean, and the heaters kept us warm at the outdoor bar

I have frequented Catania several times now, and the food and service have been consistently superb. While the menu changes to accommodate seasonal ingredients, the wait staff are well-informed as to know what to recommend every time I dine here. Catania's pizza sauce is arguably the best in the city, even though pizzas are not my go-to meal. I know. The horror! Catania executes all the elements necessary for a successful restaurant.
