We enjoyed wonderful food and attentive service at this restaurant in a small strip mall. They offer a pasta appetizer cooked flambè tableside. The pasta was cooked within a wheel of cheese with three kinds of mushrooms. It was delicious. Our party had a variety...More

Recently we had a luncheon to celebrate my grandmother's 100th birthday at La Catena. It was a wonderful celebration from the food to the service--everything was terrific! Emilio, the owner, spent time with us prior to the party to plan a beautiful menu with lots...More

Very good food. Well made. Expnsive. You might like it anyway. During the week it's a bit empty and since it's a big place it feels a bit lonely. I do like the food though!

Yes, the food and service were very good and reasonably priced for the quality and service. However, a big disappointment was there was no lunch menu although it was lunch time. On La Catena's website it shows the lunch menu for the weekends, so an...More

I can't say enough good things about this place. The owner is a class act. The food is soooo good. Like good enough that I insist on driving here from Brooklyn to eat their pappardelle on my birthday because it makes me happy. Yes, this...More

Amelio, the owner, took special care of us since my cousin is a frequent customer. We shared his special pappadelle with cognac and a wheel of parmagiane. We followed that with Veal Parm, salmon, shrimp fra Diablo, chicken livornese. Each was fantastic. We had dessert...More

Clearly a local spot, and a place where you are treated better if they know you. It was pleasantly surprising to find a restaurant in a strip mall populated by waiters in black, white shirts and neckties or bowties - it felt very old school....More

As one travels inland from the water (either the Hudson River or Long Island Sound) in Westchester County, it's somewhat difficult to find a reasonably priced family restaurant that serves consistently good food. La Catena is one of those places. The owner will greet you...More

See jakeman77's answer. This really covers it. The restaurant puts out a menu virtually the same day as the special holiday. Expect crowds and less than attentive service, but the food is generally pretty good.
