This is truly an amazing place. Incredible Italian Food. Homemade taste like you were eating at your family's home. Excellent marinara sauce (perfect in my opinion). Sal and Russ & family really know their stuff and they treat everyone that walks in like family. They have wood fired brick oven pizza that is perfect. Usually we get the Pugliese (broccoli rabe and sausage) which is exactly what we got this time (lol). They have a lot of great pizza but that's my favorite. Fried calamari is always incredible. We also had chicken parm and penne alla vodka, and salmon with broccoli. I finished off with one of their daily specials Rigatoni Norma (rigatoni with fried eggplant and ricotta cheese). Wow it was so good i came again the same week for the same dish (and the Pugliese pizza and Fried calamari LOL). Finished off with an expresso with sambuca. I have know Sal for many years and he really knows his stuff. Pasta always al dente (little firm, which is the only way you should eat pasta), marinara sauce is always perfect (just like when mom makes it), as is everything they make there. Also, don't forget they make the best Italian sandwiches. My favorite is the mixed seafood (fried shrimp & calamari) with marinara sauce (i like it spicy so i add crushed red pepper). Good size portions and reasonable pricing make this the go to spot in the area. Try for yourself you won't be disappointed. Highly recommend. Buon Appetito!

In the before-times, Cataldo's was among the least flashy places to eat on this stretch of Vanderbilt Ave. It's also one of the best. It is a perfect red-sauce joint, cozy, with delicious food, great prices and big portions, bottles of wine (good wine!) under $30, and serious pizza. It's also a great place to stop in for a to-go chicken parm hero on your way to the park. And, importantly: they deliver! Call them, they're fast, food is packaged well and hot on arrival. The chicken francese is as ethereal as it is in the restaurant.

We love Cataldo's! Tonight we had arugula salad, baked clams, fettuccine alfredo with shrimp, and cavatelli Pugilese (homemade cavatelli with sausage and broccoli rabe). Absolutely fresh and delicious. Sigh, and the black and white mousse dessert... yum. Always friendly service. Family owned and operated!
