New Jersey's Catelli gets a Duo-over

The restaurant opens in Voorhees Town Center.

New Jersey's Catelli gets a Duo-over


Catelli Ristorante enjoyed an almost-17-year run in the Main Street Complex in Voorhees before the swish Italian destination closed in July 2011.

Times had changed. Owners Jan Talamo, Linda Rosanio and chef Lou Imbesi went back to the drawing board and came up with Catelli Duo, an industrial-chic osteria/wine bar tucked into Voorhees Town Center (12101 Town Center Blvd., 856-751-6069).

Menu allows dining at a variety of price points. Imbesi says patrons will be asked if they want "social" (smaller) or "duo" (entree-size) portions. Menu includes some Catelli favorites such as short ribs, plus salads, sandwiches, raw bar, brick-oven pizza (gluten-free, too), pasta, and full-blown entrees.

Roberta Adamo - the pasta specialist who for years was behind University City's Penne - works here.

Sixteen-seat bar is stocked with a 20-wine-by-the-glass storage system as is dominated by wine walls showing off 80 options by the bottle.

Outside has two fire pits - one positioned by a waterfall to create steam. There will be a takeout section by the front counter. 

It's open seven days a week serving lunch, dinner and weekend brunch. 

Menu is here.
