The Cataldo 'ndrina is a clan of the 'Ndrangheta, a criminal and mafia-type organisation in Calabria, Italymarker. The 'ndrina is based in Locrimarker, a hotbed of 'Ndrangheta activity. The clan allied, with the Marafioti family, is involved in a long blood feud with the Cordì 'ndrina from the same town since the end of the 1960s.

On December 27, 2005, Francesco Cataldo, who is considered to be the boss of the clan was arrested, alone in a deserted house and unarmed. He was charged with commanding the killing of Salvatore Cordì on May 31, 2005, the leader of the opposing clan. The killing of Salvatore Cordì was a retribution for the killing of Giuseppe Cataldo three months earlier, on February 15, 2005.

On December 18, 2008, police arrested Antonio Cataldo for ordering the killing of Cordì, jointly with three of the material killers. Ten days earlier, his cousin and namesake, had been arrested. He was convicted to 30 years imprisonment for drug trafficking.

In May 2008, 48 arrest warrants were issued against members of the Cataldo, Sergi and Marando 'ndrine for drug trafficking. The Sergi-Marando clan imported cocaine from Colombia and hashish from Morocco, while the Cataldos distributed the drugs to Lombardy, Piemonte, Veneto and Emilia Romagna through affiliates of the clan in northern Italy.
