La Caterina Trattoria: Asheville, NC

posted on August 21, 2005 at 9:37 am

Who knew Asheville has such great food? To be short and to the point: they smoke their own meats, make their own fresh pasta, bread, and fresh mozzarella de bufala. This is the antipasto plate we couldn’t help tearing into before taking the picture. We also had the calamari steak, which could have been better, but I assume that was due to the lack of fresh calamari in the North Carolina Mountains. I am a sucker for a tradition veal milanese. Theirs was spectacular. I am pretty sick of osso bucco because most places can’t get it right. Theirs was perfectly seasoned and fall of the bone tender. My waitress was well versed in the Italian wines, not to mention efficient and pleasant. The owners have done a good job with this place. The atmosphere is relaxed and warm. I just wish I could transport it from Asheville to Atlanta.
