    Recently ate here for my Girlfriend's birthday. The food was outstanding and the service was excellent. Glad we made reservations though as the restaurant is quite small and we would have had to wait otherwise

    A small space with a mix of high tables and low as well as a long table seating 10 or so - family style. The mix was interesting and made for a friendly ambience that carried through the evening. Food exceptional for the area and prices surprisingly reasonable. All in all- one of the areas very best restaurants. Pretty noisy - otherwise a great find. It would be hard not to like this place a lot!

    Our waitress was outstanding and the food was excellent. We tried the Italian egg roll, the crab claws, the pork wings and the Cesar and the mixed green salads. All were excellent. We also had the tuna tar tar which was fresh and very good,but not as spicy as I might have preferred. Did I mention the waitress was outstanding/ perhaps the best service I can remember (knowledgeable, attentive, personalble and friendly). We look forward to returning as soon as possible.

    After I write this review I am going back in to make a reservation. You can get right off the highway and step right up to this gem in Castle Rock. You are greeted by the owner, who could not be nicer. One of our diners had mobility issues and the staff was very accomodating. Oh I and I haven't even gotten to the food .Yum. We have foodies, vegetarians and a picky 15 year old. We ordered off the happy hour menu and shared many small plates. Desert is also not to be missed. Try the homemade peanut butter/choc bites and order extra to take home.

    The prices and selection for Uniscali's Happy Hour are so good, sometimes when the bill arrives you end up paying a bit more than you think. But it's only because you've thoroughly enjoyed everything and the service is so gracious and attentive that you just keep on eating and drinking. This is a delightful experience in every way. As a gal who has to watch calories, fat, and cholesterol (very unfun especially when dining out), you can try to be good at Uniscali but why bother? Save the restraint for the following day. To prove it, I can personally vouch for the carrot cake and chocolate bread pudding. We've had great food and even better service every time we've been to Uniscali - please try it yourself. Hope you're equally pleased.

    As usual the dinner was splendid. The chicken Saltimboca with homemade pasta and butter sauce was a special treat; my companion's lazagna elicited raves and the Italian bread with Balsamic/olive oil completed a feast. The staff was warmly welcoming and attentive and the atmosphere was attractive and electric. Evenings here are always a special event.

    Our dinner was very enjoyable from start to finish, from the beets and cauliflower appetizer through entrees and dessert. Both entrees, pork and tenderloin, were delicious with well-matched sides and portions will allow for a home encore. Our chocolate and pralines dessert was tasty and ample sized for sharing.

    I have eaten at Uniscali multiple times, but this time I brought 2 new friends and we will all definitely be back. Such a great place for happy hour or just catching up with friends or family. The service was great and all the regular menu items were just as good as I remember. I had the special and I was thrilled to try something new. Our server was very attentive and had no problem helping recommend items for everybody. He was even able to get my gluten free friend a fabulous meal of gluten free pasta!

    This was our third meal at Uniscali, and it was just as great as the first two. The Chicken Saltimbocca was d!elicious, and the pasta and arugula with lemon were perfect with it. The fusilli with shrimp and sausage was very flavorful and satisfying. The rustic Italian bread, grilled with olive oil and balsamic vinegar was addictive! We love the friendly atmosphere and the wonderful service and plan to go back soon.
