We really enjoyed dining at Castelli’s. The service was outstanding, everyone was so friendly. We felt we had great food at a good value - extras like the bread (I think it was baked with a garlic based topping) made it special.
The fettuccine Alfredo was cooked to perfection- and our Caesar salad, sublime. Will be returning !

This place never disappoints in normal times and during the Covid restrictions it was no different. The service while not inside, was still fantastic and comfortable. They are serving on the patio area which has covering and heaters. The pasta and chicken i ordered were fantastic.

This place was so nice! Friendly and fast service. The food was so good as well as the wine selection. I don't know how they knew but they brought us a little dessert for our anniversary.

We've been coming here for twenty years!
The only disappointment was the lack of people due to limited COVID restrictions.
Food is beyond 5 stars, service always top notch. Just need indoor dining and the old standard ambience we and they are used to!

We had a great dinner at Castelli's. The Osso Bucco and Linguini di Mare were fantastic. The waiters did a great job. We felt safe as the tables were well spaced. We've always enjoyed Castelli's and they are handling the pandemic very well.

Love Castellis food and service. Dining outside is wonderful now that we have cooler weather. My staple is fettuccine alfredo... Perfect calamari app and perfect negroni!

Food was good. Osso Bucco read tender and delicious. Service was top notch. Foul mouthed customer sat near us and argued with his wife? all through the meal. Not the restaurants fault. He finally left and it was a really nice meal.

The veal was rubbery. There were very few clams and they were tiny.
Crab cakes were excellent
Cream brûlée was a bit watery.

Yet it still was worth it
