The restaurant is simply laid out. A square dining room with tables and chairs arranged comfortably. Our waiter looked to be around 80, but that's an 80 nI wouldnt mind being when (if) I reach his age. Perfect posture and a gentle demeanor, he handled the pre-meal drinks and appetizers handily. The appetizer of eggplant rollatine was just ok. Similar... More

We returned to have the papardelle, a dish that is made by adding cognac and water to a Parmigan wheel. (We had been dreaming about it since the last time we ate there). We were not disappointed. The food is excellent and the service is outstanding as well. If I can't go to Italy, this restaurant is a good substitute!

This was my first experience at La Catena. My sister, who lives in Ardsley, highly recommended it for dinner, and I was extremely happy that she did. The staff is dressed in formal attire that at one time was the norm, but has disappeared in the name of “hipness”. The entire staff treated us as though we were their most... More

Although they have been here for six years, New Years Eve was our first time. The restaurant was full and the tables were turning over as people left. Considering the date, we were not rushed. The food, ambiance and service was excellent. The items on the menu had been reduced but there was more than enough to satisfy anyone. We... More

I have been going to La Catena for several years for both family celebrations and delicious relaxing dinners. Lately I have been taking my mother to this elegant yet comfortable restaurant every Friday because Emilio Delija the owner and his staff treat us like we are part of their family. From the moment we walk in the door we are... More

You should definitely order the papardelle alla Emilio which is prepared table-side during an impressive ceremony. The waiter brings in a cart with a wheel of parmaggiano reggiano to which he adds cognac and then lights it. As the heat melts the cheese, the waiter scraps it to create a melted cheese sauce for the pasta and mushrooms. OMG, that... More

Went here for a friend's birthday. Ordered the fish special- they "allegedly " de-boned it at the table. I took a bite, got a bone in my mouth which I removed, took another bite and had a bone stuck in my throat. Very scary. I called the waiter over & told him I couldn't eat it because it was full...

Very good place in Ardsley - not over the top. We fell into this place on a Saturday night. It's been open just 6 years this month (October 2016) and though we aren't shy about trying new places, we just never did - but we should have. We shared the Insalata alla Catena which was a lovely start to the... More
