Nestled on the top floor of the new, architecturally breathtaking La Plaza La Jolla, Catania offers authentic Italian coastal cuisine with a relaxed vibe and gorgeous downtown & ocean views. From gourmet pizzas and pastas to eloquent, hand-crafted cocktails, it was named one of Zagat’s Hottest New Restaurants Around the US in 2015 for good reason.

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.
