A neighborhood gem! Terrific food in a casual, friendly environment. Alfredo and his staff know how to make you feel welcome. Great house Chianti, veal milanese and pasta specials, especially black linguini with lobster arrabbiata.

It look alike a diner but it's really a fabulous Italian restaurant, nestled in the center of Katonah. Everything is fresh, delicious and like your grandmother made it!

We always love to go to the Blue Dolphin, an old converted diner, always busy, worth the wait. Food is consistently good, the owner and staff are friendly and accommodating. Home made pasta is excellent one of my favorite dishes is the grilled trout. Prices are fair for what you get. One of our family's favorite restaurants.

Well..once again we had been meaning to check it out....forever. FINALLY stopped on a whim...lucky enough to get in just before the crowd got there. OMG...the food is out of this world...nothing bland or ordinary here. Very friendly and quick service. Small but a lot of ambiance....kind of an Italian bistro with a "back in the day" diner vibe.

Local staple for Italian food for many years. Great food, friendly staff. Often has waiting patrons on benches out front at dinner time. Casual setting in a refurbished diner. Just really good Italian food run by pros. Closed Sundays.

Have eaten here several times and am always amazed at the diversity of the menu in this eclectic place. It looks like a small diner, but it is more than that offering a veriety of food types to satisfy all appetites.
