Have been Casta Diva regulars (2-3X per month) for years. Staff is exceptional and the food is consistently very good.
We love the calamari, caesar salad, roasted cauliflower, pastas, salmon, branzino and the lamb chops.
We highly recommend. BYOB. Good value.
Desserts are also good, but we rarely indulge.
Out of a dozen or so friends I am the only person who is not enamored with this restaurant. I have been there four times..at the insistence of my friends and I still cannot find anything that I like about it. I find it very expensive, and the food just mediocre. My main observation is that the food....and the plates are not hot when it comes from the kitchen. The food looks prepared way far in advance and just replated.
Just perfect! Waitress was so friendly and helped us explore the menu. Pasta was out of this world as was fish. Can’t wait to go back!
Delicious Tuscan-leaning food in a comfortable space with friendly service. We got the beet salad, which had an unusually tangy goat cheese that really made the dish sing. We also got the boar shank over white bean purée and braised kale and pappardelle with mushrooms and roasted wild boar for mains. Both outstanding and, despite both having boar, very distinct from each other. The masterpiece was the flourless chocolate cake with housemate vanilla ice cream. Could’ve been boring but was absolutely awesome.
Always the best. Hone made pasta. Cooked to order lamb chops. Yummy grilled calamari. Count on Casta Diva for a first class experience.
Loved the caesar salad with white anchovies. Delicious branzino, wonderful wild boar over pasta, outstanding gelato. Simply the best!
Tried during center city restaurant week. They were super nice, didn't rush us, and the food was delicious. I would come back again and again!
We tried Casta Diva as it was rated highly and near an event we were attending. We were very pleasantly surprised. It happened to be Restaurant Week so the menu was limited but the choices were superb. Every bite we had was top notch and the service was friendly and thorough. We will definitely return soon to bring other friends. Bravo, a rare BYOB gem.
This was an excellent meal in all aspects for restaurant week’s last day. I can’t think of anything they could have done better.
Food was excellent
excellent as always, my favorite BYOB! consistently very good!
Awesome food and service. Will be back! We shared the appetizers. Irdered the fennel salad and the calamari to share.
The aalad was really nice, light and fresh with a wonderful citrus dressing. The calamari was so tender!
Wonderful meal especially the house made pappardelle and braised Boar. Great Cannoli. And BYOB vino!!!
Delicious dishes, quaint atmosphere, and excellent service. Highly recommended.
I absolutely love this restaurant. Great food, the ability to bring in your own wine, friendly service, and value. We come every time we visit our daughter at school. I’m already planning our next visit.
Great food, service. It is a small restaurant. So, I recommend reservations.
Fabulously delicious food with excellent service...highly recommend!
Always delicious food served beautifully. Our favorite go to!!
My meal at Casta Diva was fantastic. i had the beet salad, the pappardelle pasta, and the flourless chocolate cake. All were delicious. The service was also awesome. Giuseppe was very attentive, friendly and anticipated our every request. Best Italian restaurant and best BYOB in the city!
Creative dishes & excellent service. Food was excellent. Tables too close & noise level is painful.
Food was delicious! We'll be back soon.
Common problem these days is noise volume. I could not hear the person next to me. However, the food was wonderful!! and I will begin bringing ear plugs to all restaurants in the future.
It never disappoints !
Food is excellent and the service is beyond excellent. We had their amazing artichokes and lamb chops and will go back for more real soon!
Keep up the good work!
As always Casta Diva is consistently amazing! My meal was delicious and beautifully prepared. Casta Diva should be considered the best of the best of our fantastic Philadelphia restaurants.
We had another wonderful dinner at Casta Diva. It has always been one of our favorites restaurants for a long time and dinner this week did not disappoint us. The service was very attentive and each course was excellent. Best was we could have a conversation without speaking extra loud. How great is that? ???
We could heard each other and enjoy the meal. That is what dinning is supposed to be and is at Casta Diva.
amazing meal! i will def be back! the waiter was soooo nice too! Everything was delicious!!!
Great food overall. Seemed a bit understaffed with waiters/waitresses so wouldn’t come here if you’re in a rush. But when the waiter did come he was very polite, took his time explaining the menu and checked on us throughout the meal.
We love it here. Always beautiful selections cooked to perfection. Highly recommend!
Intimate, elegant restaurant with expertly prepared northern Italian food. It's tiny. The menu is surprisingly varied. A neighborhood institution.
Always great food. Noisy during prime dinner hours
We all loved the food, and the service was outstanding.
Excellent authentic Italian cuisine, great neighborhood BYOB. Service was excellent & the chef was very accommodating and friendly. Casta Diva made my friend’s birthday very special. Will absolutely be going back again & again. Highly recommended
A fresh new menu. All the items are presented beautifully. Delicious!!
A creative restaurant with outstanding food. Fresh ingredients and excellent sauces. Often different but very good. We had carpaccio with mushrooms that was excellent. Also a salad of thinly sliced seasonal vegetables- turned out to be different beets among others. Excellent. Main courses sew shrimp and pasta with a delicate sauce, and steak - smoked and cooked just as asked. The staff was attentive, knowledgeable and pleasant. Casta Diva is an undiscovered gem
Always a great experience
Front of the house efficient and bubbly and the kitchen has been spectacular Had the octopus salad it was incredible and the smoked steak with potatoes absolutely delicious
The food served at this little hidden gem is out-of-this-world fantastic. The cozy and intimate ambience matches perfectly with two servers that takes care of the diners. It feels like you are in a warm Italian home with a fabulous authentic Italian cook.
The food really is outstanding. from the light perfected sauces and delicious delicate home-made pastas to the delicately prepared artichokes with lemon tarragon butter sauce, every dish here is made with perfection.
Love Love Love this place.
Creative food in nicely sized portions; very good and attentive, but unobtrusive service; lovely small restaurant - worth a visit.
Casta Diva is always good. It is a no-brainer to eat there or take friends there. Everyone is always happy.
Had a great window seat while we enjoyed an excellent dinner on a recent weekday.
The night special, Fava bean salad and salmon over crushed fingerling potatoes and lump crabmeat was outstanding!
Reliable and interesting Italian cuisine. Served at just-right temperature by pleasant wait staff
