Overseen by Whisknladle Hospitality’s Culinary Director Chef Ryan Johnston and in collaboration with Catania’s talented chef’s and cooks, the menu is as authentic as it is innovative. Staying true to Whisknladle Hospitality’s dedication to from-scratch cooking utilizing the freshest ingredients available, the menu presents guests with unexpected riffs on traditional dishes. Guests are invited to surrender their palates as they are taken on an immersive experience, transported from Venice to Puglia to Sicily.
Located on the top floor of the newly redesigned La Plaza center on the historic corner of Wall and Girard in La Jolla, Catania is the result of the vision of Whisknladle Hospitality owner Arturo Kassel and Culinary Partner/Director Ryan Johnson who were inspired by a two-week, 1,400 mile road trip throughout Italy years ago. The restaurant provides guests with authentic Italian coastal cuisine in a relaxed, yet elevated setting featuring panoramic ocean views.
Highlights include a rotating selection of fresh crudo, housemade pastas and handcrafted pizzas, all crisped to perfection by Beatrice, the restaurant’s 5,000 pound wood burning oven. Completing the Catania menu is a thoughtful selection of handcrafted desserts overseen by Whisknladle Hospitality Corporate Chef Jojo Rossi, a first generation Sicilian-American.
