I have hosted two birthday dinner
parties recently at Castello and enjoyed both immensely. The food was outstanding only to be overshadowed by the great service. Attention to detail was self evident when you first encounter the owner and his staff. John our waiter was exceptionally good and added some nice energy and fun to both birthday dinners. If you like wine the BYOB option for wine is a great idea but it is always good to know they have a full bar if you need it. Great place and outstanding food!"

I thought everything was perfect
from the staff, to the food, and then to the dessert! I have lived in the area for 8 years and this was my first time going to this location. I definitely plan on returning!"

Would highly recommend Castello at
Blue Bell. Food and service were both very good. My eggplant appetizer was tasty and refined. My brocciola and rigatoni main course was excellent. The service was attentive and professional. My wife and dinner companions also enjoyed their selections. I can vouch for the callimari and crab fra diavalo appetizer which was tasty with a generous amount of crab and just enough bite. Their coffee is excellent. The dining space is compact with tables pretty close together, but the space was adequate and the noise level moderate- we were easily able to converse cross-table. A cut above most Italian places in the area."

You will be amazed by the
knowledge of the staff. The "specials" practically outnumber items on the menu! It is especially nice when the owner actually makes his rounds throughout the dining room. Can't say enough about the food - simply amazing! You can't go wrong with Castello!"

We have been here several times
for lunch and dinner and have never been disappointed. We were a party of six and each person was very pleased with their meal. Between the six of us we covered a wide selection of their food pasta, fish, veal beef. certainly will be back again."

The food and the atmosphere was
nice, but more expensive than what I would pay for a usually meal."

Luncheon items were reaonably
priced. Restaurant offers a quiet respite for dining."

I have been to this restaurant in
my neighborhood several times. This time my experience was not as good as usual. We sent back the calamari because it was chewy. They exchanged it for Oyster Rockefeller but the spinach tasted too creamy. The gnocchi had too much butter in it. My veal chop marsala was very flavorful however, the waiter did not ask me how I wanted it cooked and it was too rare for me to eat. My friend ordered the scallop entree and they were the smallest scallops we ever saw. I think this restaurant is going downhill fast and the owner needs to be more observant before it is too late."

We had our annual Christmas lunch
here and were very impressed. Will continue to eat here throughout the year, also."

Food was good, service was good,
Ambiance was good. A little pricey. Lacking some of the Italian kitchen table feeling."

Castello's has a wonderful varied
menu and a pretty dining room, I was the only one of 7 who has dined there before and everyone enjoyed their meals. I will be returning."

Food,service,&ambience are good.
Special prices are too pricey.Waiter shoul tell cost of each specialty item"
Dined on 12/3/2013
Food was excellent although the
specials were somewhat overpriced. Decor is lovely, and they now have a liquor license which came as a surprise to everyone in the place. Habib is very personable and friendly - added to the charm of the restaurant."

We took my mother-in-law for her
birthday. This was her first time and my husband and mine's third. We all really enjoyed it. The food was fantastic. Best part was we went early on a Sunday and it was empty. We had the whole place to ourselves."

John was our server and he was
excellent. Allowed us to take our time, knew the menu specials very well. Extremely friendly ....Excellent Service"

The food served at our table of
four was outstanding and we all had different first and second courses. We will return for dinner again!"

Really enjoyed the ambiance and
the service but most of all the food was absolutly delicious and a great change from the numerious Southern Italian restaurants in the area. A great find for the Nothern Italian food."

Even though we had reservations,
no table was held for us. We were told we would have to eat outside.. We were reluctantly given A table inside. The restaurant was bustling. A waiter did finally come over and was very professional. However, that was the last that we saw of him. Our appetizer, stuffed mushrooms came and were hot and tasty. Bread was also provided. We brought our own wine and they opened it for us at no extra charge. My husband and I both ordered the ravioli with hazelnut sauce. It had three large shrimp and four very small scallops. Everything was fresh but the ravioli, homemade, were limp and a bit tough. The sauce was nice tasting but thin. The fish lacked flavor. The room was nice but we were not overly impressed."
Dined on 10/27/2013
This is one of our favorite
restaurants. There were six of us and we all loved what we ordered. The artichokes are the best we've ever tasted. They are grilled and made with olive oil and garlic!!!!! Delicious bread!!!! All the salads were outstanding. I had grilled shrimp, asparagus and mushrooms (not on the menu) and it was no problem making that for me. The service is one of the best we have ever experienced. In the summer they have an outdoor patio which is great!!!! Thank you for a fabulous dinner and exceptional service."

Good food, great service and good
pricing. My husband and I were there recently and enjoyed our dinner and the appetizers. Definitely would go again."
Dined on 10/19/2013
Service was rushed. We were asked
for our dinner order repeatedly. Our table was not even- the leaf was tipped and two of us are worried that plates would slip off (!we did point this out to waiters). Food was a bit bland this time. We generally love the food here but won't rush to come back"
Dined on 10/18/2013
I went with a group of family
members and everyone in the party ordered some type of salad. John, our waitstaff, was very attentive to every detail. We went on a Saturday afternoon and it was empty, but I know that there is typically a crowd during the week. The salads were delicious and the service excellent."

If you like to feel ignored, this
is the place for you! My husband and I were celebrating our anniversary and were seated at a table in the corner. It was downhill from there. We sat without acknowledgment for a good 15 minutes with several "I'll be right with you". Menus were already on the table and not presented to us. Finally someone came and gave us water. Then we waited another 10 minutes for the waiter to show up and recite the specials for the evening. Each entrée was placed without much fanfare and a lot of waiting in between. Finally the waiter shows up with the dessert tray and says I apologize but its not my fault (have no idea what the apology was for, but apparently it wasn't his fault!). Definitely would not recommend."

It was very quiet when we arrived
at 6pm; by the end of our meal the room was teeming with diners while the other room sat empty. The food was good; I wouldn't go out of my way to eat here again though. I sprinkled the table with La Parmigiana, Calamari Fra Diavolo, Crab Meat Mushroom and Gnocchi in a pink sauce. All were fine, but the Calamari was a tad bit fishy and the Gnocchi was not as light as it should have been. For dinner, I ordered our table the Ravioli Di Aragosta (stuffed with scallops, shrimp and lobster), Vitello Di Castello, Blackened Tilapia and Pollo Valdostana. Everything was nice and cooked perfectly. I would recommend Costello, but there are a few better options for italian food in the Blue Bell area."

Four of us enjoyed a lovely dinner
on a Wednesday night. Our friends were not familiar with the area or the restaurant, and were pleasantly surprised. The food was delicious, and the service, very good. We will return, I am sure."
Dined on 9/12/2013
All was excellent except for a
waiter who we've had a few times. I request that he be a little less rude and portentous. This is one reason we have yet to return. Other than that, the food and ambience is wonderful."
Dined on 7/15/2013
If the artichoke appetizer is
avaliable, order it! It's one of those dishes you order because you like artichokes, but from the first bite you find yourself in a new realm of deliciousness. Part of the experience is the suprise. you just don't expect artiechokes to taste that good. Several days later the taste memory still gives me pleasure. While the rest of the dishes did not reach this sublime level, they were very good. My wife and I have eaten there twice and have yet to have anything that was less than excellent."

I've been there three times in the

this restaurant came highly
recommended by a few different groups of friends. we were first seated at the worst table in the house and asked to be moved to another table - only to be seated in in the next worst seats of the house. the menu had a lot of variety. we found the food under seasoned and on the bland side, none of the ingredients standing out and tasting particularly fresh. the sauces were nice - my crab risotto was undercooked and not creamy though the crab was delicate and flavorful. Our server did not come back to check on us after our entrees were served. We are foodies and dine out often at all different types of restaurants. We felt that the "regular" clients received better and friendler service."

Our group of eight had an
absolutely wonderful time. Service was great---we brought champagne and were given champagne glasses without asking. Food was wonderful."

This lunch was my first time at
Ristorante Castello - but it will not be my last. It was a beautiful day and their outdoor dining area is perfect for enjoying not only the weather but also a relaxing lunch. I would highly recommend going for a wonderful dining experience."

the wait staff was friendly,
outgoing and actually entertaining without being intrusive. People make the experience pleasant or not Our experience was very pleasant."

I returned to Castello for another
lunch with my aunt. On a boiling hot day, Castello was serene and comfortable, lovely music playing in the background. Just as with our first lunch visit a few months ago, we were totally pleased with our experience. I highly recommend anyone looking for a nice spot for a leisurely lunch and conversation...go to Castello. We'll be back again."
Dined on 7/16/2013
Everything was DELICIOUS! The
sauces on the meals were fantastic. I had the crab meat with mushrooms in cream sauce and my husband had the oyster rockefeller. I had the tortellini as entree and my husband had lobster ravioli. The bread was fresh and delicious and great for sopping up the cream sauce. The staff was very professional and responsive. Tuxedo cake for dessert was great. This location is great for parties. Very nice and we highly recommend."
