Consistently good food for over a decade at fair pricing. Some new staff still need upskilling.

service was horrible. took two hours to get our food and we were checked on by the waiter only twice during those two hours of waiting. seemed like they forgot about our table because other tables were getting their food much quicker and first. when we actually ate the food itself was good, though. very loud environment.

We read the reviews and were very worried about the food and experience. We stuck with the reservation as it was a last minute thing and glad that we did as we were pleasantly surprised. The waiter was great, very hard working and met our needs as quickly as possible. The food was very good. We had fried and grilled calamari, gnocchi, and pizza. The gnocchi looked too perfect and firm but tasted homemade. We enjoyed them. We all

Dined there at 8 pm Friday nov 12- four of us , food was decent but service was terrible , then there was a large group celebrating a birthday and they had a DJ. Music came on and we were at an 80’s wedding . Couldn’t hear each other and had to scream . Complained to the waitress who said management was unable to get the patrons to turn down their music . Won’t be going back to this restaurant !

They checked vaccine passport but no ID...what's the point? Tables were closer together that they should be and lots of people in smaller area.

Apps/Entree - Tasted Great, big portions

Online menu showed lamb chops but not at the restaurant. Also, no basil was on our Margherita Pizza.

Dessert - small, horrible value

Service - good, but not enough for amount of tables, waited long for follow up and service at times but not servers fault. They were nice.

4of us went to Castello for dinner. The restaurant is large and spacious clean and well presented. Dinner was a little slow to start because of a couple of large groups but the good and attentive service more than made up for it. Actually the slow dinner service allowed more time with our friends so it turned out to be a really nice relaxing dinner. The servers were friendly and took their time to understand our orders (1 vegan 1 food allergies) Our food was delicious steak seafood pasta fish appetizers. We are local but in the 20 years in this area had never dined at Castello. We will definitely move this to the top of our list. Great place for events. Thanks to everyone at Castello!!

-after getting seated, we waited at least 20 mins before anyone came to even ask us about water, etc (had to ask for a waiter to come to our table to serve us)
-waitress was nice enough, but inexperienced - had to ask other staff for our waitress to come and help us
- ordered calamari- rubbery - had to send it back
- main entrees were good

Although they were short staffed and running around they were still very attentive and took the time for us
My only negative would be 4.00 for the smallest glass of soda that was flat and had to pay another 4.00 for a refill

Our second time visiting this restaurant and the service was slow. It was Sunday and there were several large groups, which I think is the forte of this place. I suspect means smaller tables may get left behind. food was good but nothing exceptional.

We got there. We were a party of 8 and 3 of us showed up first. After the full party got there for another 35 mins nobody came to talk to us. We got 3 menus at the beginning and then when the rest of the party showed up, we did not get additional menus. For 45 minutes we got no water and we were not asked for drinks. We had to waive someone down to get water. Then an hour later the waitress finally came and asked what we would want to eat. No ask for drinks and at the time of reservation we were told for parties of 8, we would get focaccia and that was not offered until we asked for it. Then when water was finally given to us, they gave us bottled water and we weren’t told that we would have to pay for it. Two hours into being there we finally got food. We are vegetarian and this was already noted in the reservation. They made mistakes for substitutions and there was no offer to get another plate. The waitress was rude & in the whole 2 hours we were there we were not served properly not even once. Note that at no point were we even asked for drinks. The food was mediocre. Would not go back here and would not recommend to anyone. This was such a waste of 2 hours. Crap food and crap service.

Great restaurant and food tasted great. I did ask for no meat on my pasta and asked them to add mushrooms instead and they charged me for a full side of mushrooms which was a lot and I didn’t feel a serving of that size for the price was necessary. Otherwise good experience.

Our waiter was very busy that night....he did a great job considering his work load. Well done! Food was very good...pizza was very good, but I should have asked for a slightly longer bake.

3.5 hours to eat dinner. 3 meals came and then we waited 30 minutes before the next 3 and another 30 minutes before the last 2 meals arrived. Entire party ate their meals at different times than the rest of the party.
We understand they were overwhelmed with a large event that was also going on at the same time.
Manager promised us she would make it up to us and take care of us, then offered us all dessert.
She then billed us all for the goodwill desserts we ordered and put a measly 20% discount on the bill.
We refused this ludicrous offer and had to insist she appropriately adjust the bills. She finally relented and gave us two free meals and the desserts.
Excellent food, but avoid going there if they are ever busy as service can be poor and managers compensation is unacceptable.
Most other parties would have walked out when half the food never showed.
3.5 hours caused our party to miss our next booking.

I believe they were under-staffed as our server was new and the other server would jump in and appeared to be hurried all the time. Lots of back and forth between the two of them, never sure who took our order and if they got it right.
We sat on the patio as it was a pleasant night, I think they forgot about us a few times. Had to go to the door and wave at them.
The food was very good, wine we wanted was not available so we ordered another bottle which was good. We were very satisfied with the food and wine but the service was a little under par for the type of establishment, would have expected better service.
We will still go again as the food is very good.

Food was excellent. One of the finest in Italian cuisines, they go above and beyond.
All waiters and waitresses were super attentive, even though they had a ton of large parties going on.

We arrived right on time for our reservation yet it took 45 minutes for us to receive water; we had to ask 2x for bread; took 60 mins for the waitress to take our order and she had to return 2x to confirm what she wrote down and we did not get our food until 8:45 a full 105 minutes after we were seated. Food was palatable but nothing notable.

We shall not return.

Service was great and the place was gorgeous inside! The calamari was incredible and so were the truffle fries. The only thing I wouldn’t recommend was the steak frites. I wouldn’t order steak again from there. But I’d definitely go back!!

Came in for a reservation at 7pm, they didn’t have a table ready until 7:30, and instead seated other people who were late for their reservations. So other people being late means I’ve got to delay all of my plans for the night? What’s the point of making a reservation? Pathetic.

We had reservations for 7:00 and didn’t get seated until 7:45 no apology from hostess or manager. We were told the kitchen was backed up. We waited another 1/2 to order and by the time our food finally arrived it was after 9:00 pm.

After waiting for 2 hours for our food, we were disappointed in the quality. The risotto was overcooked, but tasty and not worth the price. My husbands pasta was just ordinary. The wine ordered was not available when they checked the cellar?? Did get a good wine but at a much higher price.
