This is one of Danbury's best
This is one of Danbury's best kept secrets. Everything we ordered from the appetizer to the dessert was excellent. The staff clearly take pride in the quality.

What a find! Food was fantastic!
What a find! Food was fantastic! We can't wait to go back. We started with the Caesar salad for two, it was amazing. My salmon was perfect and my husband had penne with arrabiata sauce, it wasn't on the menu, but they made it. He said it was fabulous.

We went on a Sunday evening
We went on a Sunday evening and the restaurant was not very busy; the wait staff was appropriately attentive, the wine list was diverse and the appetizers and food were excellent.

Delicious and great ambience
I chose Castello for a special birthday dinner for my girlfriend, and it was fantastic. The servers and management were all friendly and personable, and while they were attentive, they were in no hurry and let us linger at our own pace.
We had a very nice bottle of wine and started with the tableside Caesar salad. Our entrees included Dover Sole also fileted and de-boned expertly table side, and the pasta with shrimp & cherry peppers.
Everything was delicious. I will definitely count this as a favorite!

Imitations Won"t Do
Overall, the food was very good,but the mushroom stuffed with crab meat was lacking. The oysters on- the- half- shell were some of the best I've ever had, and coming from Maryland, that says a lot. As I expected, the veal dishes, which my party had, were very good, especially the veal chop.

I recommend this terrific restaurant to anyone who is looking to enjoy a delicious dinner, with loved ones at a warm, cozy place on any night of the week. I've been here many times before, because not only is the food superb, the service is just as great. They go out of there way to make your experience a memorable one, regardless of how many times you've been there. When you go to Castello, make a point of ordering their crab cakes if they offer them as a special of the evening, you wont be disappointed! If they don't have them then get the Cesar- as fresh as it gets. You cant go wrong with whatever you order there. Just like myself, you'll leave Castello feeling satisfied with both your meal and your experience.

Food and service were excellent
Food and service were excellent and prices are pretty reasonable, except for some of their specials which seemed a bit pricey as well as the wine list which was also a bit high for this area. Overall, it was a very enjoyable experience however.

A real caesar salad
tableside is the name of the game at this lovely italian find in connecticut. the caesar salad is as it should be, the deboning of fish is elegant and the flaming desserts are just fun. the food is well prepared--perfectly cooked fish and veggies. wines by the glass are limited. they could not have been any nicer, and the service was impeccable.

The decor made me feel as
The decor made me feel as if I were in Italy. The service was very good. It did take a while to get our check. The cheese, Kalamata olives and breadsticks on the table were VERY good.
My one son had penne vodka, which was a nice size porion and he said the sauce was the best he ever had. My husband had Calamari fra diablo, which he said was very good and a nice size portion. My other son ordered ravioli, the portion size was so small that I felt bad and gave him half of my dinner. I had the Veal saltimbocca, The portion size was very small. There were two small medallions of veal that were so thin they could only be dry,

We were passing through Danbury and gave this place a try. Probably one of the best meals we have ever had (and we dine all over the world) The gnocchi was so light and tender. The veal chop done to perfection. A real Caesar salad maybe a little overdressed but what a dressing! it was delicious. All deserts made on premises. Mom bakes dad cooks -Sons in the front attending to customers. Great family feeling of pride and excellence in their business. The decor is a bit dated but with food and service this good.....who cares?

Great New Find!
Catching up with old friends, we searched for a restaurant in the Danbury area which would be central for all of us to meet for dinner. Castello was recommended as an easy off highway location as well as being a neighborhood gem for years. The restaurant did not disappoint; atmosphere, food, and service were great. Waiters and staff were attentive; food was served at a very relaxing pace giving us time to relax and enjoy a pleasant evening. The four of us all ordered different main courses; shrimp scampi, linguine with clam sauce (attractively served with fresh steamed clams in the shell), filet of sole Florentine, and the house chicken dish called Chicken Castello; all prepared to perfection. We would highly recommend this restaurant!

Favorite Place in Danbury
I was looking for a slightly upscale restaurant for a quiet weeknight date and found Castello.
I initially hesitated making the reservation because I feel that sometimes the "1,000 point" nights for restaurants are thrown out there as incentives to make up for questionable food and/or inflated prices. Despite this, I made a reservation and hoped for the best (I had never been so much as by the place).
We loved it. The building looks straight out of the 60's-70's. It's very well maintained, but old school. At one point, I think I heard the Godfather soundtrack.
The service was great and the food was outstanding. There wasn't a thing I would change and it has become without question my favorite restaurant in the Danbury area.

Excellent food. Excellent service. Quiet with lovely Italian decor. Wonderful crusty bread served with olives, cheese, and a buttery herb butter. My husband and I both had the Portabello Mushroom appetizer , which was so very flavorful, and Linguini with white clam sauce. Lots of tasty little neck clams and delicious and flavorful white clam sa
uce. Going back to Costello's for sure.

We didn't have high hopes
We didn't have high hopes on finding anything great in the area when we were visiting from NY, but were pleasantly surprised with Castello. We had a wonderful Caesar salad prepared table-side which we hadn't seen in a while, a nice veal chop and pasta special. Ambience is not the greatest but the service was attentive and very nice.

Little piece of Italy
We walked in the music from the Godfather and the Italian experience continued from ther with great food! Limited wine but I went for the food. I was not disappointed. We went on a Tuesday night so there were few people but everyone there was sitting back and enjoying the individual attention. If we are ever in Danbury area again we would make this a stop.

The experience dining at castello is always a pleasure with the tremendous service and accommodation .. The branzini fish is outstanding alone with ceaser salad . We always lock forward to next visit .

Castello is always one of the few places that we look forward to dining at. Whether it be a special occasion, or just a date night. The clams with linguine are a true delight, as is the chicken Castello. The espresso martini—a sip of heaven, great way to end a long week of work. We always leave here feeling impressed with our experience.

the attention to detail is superb. We love this place because they take their time with each of their guests. while making our table side cesar salad, our waiter was a comedian, kept us laughing as he was making the salad, which was delicious all 5 plates were wiped clean. Our main courses were just as good, maybe even better. its rare that you find a restaurant that offers services like Castello in the Danbury area so make this place a must go!

It was truly our pleasure!
Great place, with fabulous food & fantastic service that matches it all. We adore this place! We loved it our first time, and we love it just as much this time around. Hands down the best cesar salad I've ever had. If you're looking for real Italian food & experience-this is the place.

A Bit Like Home
Having grown up in New Orleans I'm used to eating at some of the world’s best restaurants. At Castello, the atmosphere is like a quaint villa in a small but well heeled town. The service is very pleasant and friendly and makes one feel right at home. The Menu has a great selection without reading like a book. The food is prepared with passion and just the right amount of flavor. Everything is made fresh. Order the Caesar salad for two if you want a treat. All in all, one of the best dining experiences to be found anywhere in Danbury. Warning: There are Italian restaurants that claim to be the best in the Tri-State area. You might want to test that claim by visiting Castello. I’m positive you’ll find a new Gem of Italian food.
