Catalano Restaurant & Cicchetti Bar - A Great Place to Eat

We were told by friend and colleagues with the Victoria Guest Service Network that the relatively new Catalano Restaurant was very good.  So to celebrate a family birthday and get-together, we made a reservation last night. The Catalano Restaurant & Cicchetti Bar offers fresh Mediterranean cuisine, primarily from the regions of Spain & Italy. Cicchetti (chi-KET-tee) is Italian for a small bite or small plate of food. Their food is advertised as market driven, with emphasis on locally sourced product, prepared with a Mediterranean spin. The cicchetti bar, taken after the Venetian form of tapas, is an ideal spot for visitors and locals alike to gather for a glass of wine, a well-crafted cocktail and a cicchetti or two.

We were celebrating a birthday and a cousin’s visit.  We started with a bottle of Argento Malbec wine, which was very good.  We tasted several of the appetizers and some of the Cicchetti.  The main courses were absolutely delicious.  The service was very good and the ambiance of the restaurant was very nice.  Everyone in our party was full of compliments after dinner.
