Catania is an authentic Italian food restaurant concept based on its namesake - the coastal Italian village of Catania in Sicily.
World-renowned for its simple, rustic cuisine and breathtaking landscape, Catania has a rich history and its aesthetics are deeply entwined with the eruption of Mt. Aetna which left the coastal community with basalt lava rock and fertile soil. The design aesthetic was inspired by the architecture of Catania: basalt lava rock, olive trees, and the deep blue aquamarine sea are the backdrop to the space.
The restaurant’s location takes in a grand view of the Pacific Ocean from its prominent third-story corner in the heart of La Jolla. The design features white marble, basalt stone, concrete tile, custom fabricated screens, and custom furniture.
