It is with sadness and regret that we announce that Catalano Restaurant and Cicchetti bar will be permanently closed as of  December 31st 2017. The ownership of the magnolia hotel and spa have decided to perform a major renovation to the restaurant, and upon completion, to then run it themselves.

Over the past five years, we have made many new friends and customers. Along the way, we have earned Where Magazines best new restaurant award, a Trip Advisor award of excellence for each year, garnered international press and have created one of Victoria’s best happy hours. In addition, we have turned a so called “cursed” location into a success.

We wish to give our heartfelt thanks to all our staff who have helped make Catalano the success that it is, and to our loyal clientele to whom we are so grateful. You can be sure to see a few familiar Catalano faces at our other three restaurants, so please be sure to come visit us at

Ps: Most people still wonder what the %#@$ a cicchetti is
