Fantastic experience. Great food, great fun.
Everything was wonderful, except for a very noisy party inside the restaurant. But the food and service were exceptional.
Not worth the price
Very good authentic Italian ...great service. Wonderful atmosphere. Delicious!
I’d love to speak to a manager to discuss our experience with Tony. Please feel free to call the number listed in the app. Thank you and I look forward to speaking with you
It was a wonderful dining experience the food was excellent. The service was five star and I will be back again and again.
This is among our very favorite restaurants in the desert, so when they reopened following the worst of our pandemic, we rushed to make a reservation. So glad we did, as it was akin to visiting an old friend we hadn't seen for a while.
Our dinner for four was every bit as wonderful as we had remembered from previous visits. Great service, excellent food, and just the right ambiance after months (it only felt like years!), of no dining out. When we returned home, I said to my wife, "We're going to be OK; Castelli's is back". What more is there to say.
Castelli’s is one of our favorites for many years. Had a terrific experience, great server, fantastic food!
Great experience here, food and service was excellent and they created a great atmosphere for outdoor dining.
Highly recommend for any occasion. We need support our local community restaurants
Love it - best VEAL and FETTUCINI ALFREDO in town!
This was their 2nd night open and it showed. The wait staff were great but the kitchen was unable to accommodate my food allergies. Food was under seasoned. Restaurant was packed and there was no social distancing. We cut out meal short when a couple was seated outside next to us, we were inside with an open window, and the mister was blowing inside. Felt very unsafe and we are not even in the at risk demographic.
LOVE this restaurant. Pefect fettucini alfredo. Perfect Negoni. Perfect Italian ambience and service.
It was wonderful!!!
Great food and exceptional service. It was my first time to dine here and I was very impressed by the service. Jack was a great server. Extremely personable! I will definitely go back when I’m in the area again.
Husbands birthday party this week at Castellis! Lovely round table for 8. Food was fantastic and the round table made for great conversation. Service was very good too.
We were greeted at the door and seated promptly in the section we specifically requested. Good start! Love the fact that Castelli’s is a lively local spot, not a chain restaurant. It has the classic charm and character we appreciate. Really enjoy the live piano background music.
Thorough wine list and a complete menu of Italian standards as well as specials. My veal dish was excellent and my wife’s pasta dish was perfect. Service is first rate, prompt and friendly. This is clearly a well managed establishment and a must when we visit Palm Springs several times a year. Highly recommended!
Good food and service for a family get together.
We love Castelli’s, never disappoints!
From Atlanta and my favorite is La Grotta
Castelli’ s easily gives it a run for its money
Hands down some of the best Italian food I have had and I travel the country for a living and have the opportunity to eat in some of the finest Italian restaurants in the county!
I would easily give it 2 Michelin stars!
And the wine list is to die for!
The homemade canneloni was good but the use of pre-made pasta for most of the dishes was disappointing given the relatively high price. Portions were generous however. Service was excellent but the decor is out-of-date and a bit worn. Overall an okay experience but there are better choices in Palm Desert
The food and service were excellent. The wine list is fine within limits. The piano was good, but was difficult to hear in the main dining room. It is a comfortable, elegant dining experience with an excellent Italian menu. Excellent bar.
The Veal Piccante was good the Veal Parmigiana was ordinary. Caesar salad was unremarkable, Tirramasu was excellent .
Waited for some time to try this restaurant but was really disappointed with the quality and the taste of the food. We love Italian food and are very much into pasta. This was not good at all. Ordered Canneloni and Ravioli - had no taste at all. Tasted like it was cooked in a microwave. Absolutely no flavor and the sauces were tasteless. Also had eggplant as a side dish and the eggplant was like eating rubber - since when do you need a steak knife to cut eggplant? Would not recommend for food. But the wait staff was excellent!!
We come to the desert each year and this is our favorite restaurant. So good we went back the next night.
I want to say how impressed I was with the service we experienced on my birthday dinner. Our wait staff was over the top fun and made the experience a real joy. looking forward to going back when we get back to Palm Springs.
We always come to this restaurant when we visit Palm Desert. The food is delicious & the service is outstanding!
It was nice. Food good but we won't rush back. First time I have ever dined and the server never came back to pour more wine from the bottle we ordered. It was self serve. It's just not customary to have to do it yourself.
I have been coming to the desert since the 70's and this was my first time to Castelli's. What a mistake! The food and service was spot on. I will definetly eat there at least once every time I am in town. I was blown away!
The best in the valley.
Tiny was fabulous All wait staff was terrific. Noise is a real problem tho!
Clearly a local favorite - packed on a Monday night! Salads were very good and the Osso Bucco and Vitello Milanese were excellent and huge portions. Wine was very reasonably priced. If back in Palm Springs will certainly stop here again.
This is definitely a special occasion place. Food and service are consistently excellent, and the bartender makes a mean Manhattan! Try the osso buco. And save room for the tiramisu for dessert.
perhaps the best veal chop ever........pasta was perfect. old school charm with the benefit of being able to converse without struggle
We had a glitch, but management took care of it right away. We love this restaurant, it's our 3rd time back.
This appears to be a very popular place with many regulars. Staff and service were good, but the food wasn’t as good as expected. We didn’t order appetizers, and were surprised at how quickly our entrees were brought to the table. That made us wonder if they were not just made to order for us.The risotto under the Osso Buco wasn’t hot, so that order went back. The Veal Milanese was pounded too thinly so it was overcooked. Probably will not return unless we decide to give the pasta a try.
Enjoyed dining at Castelli’s. Food was wonderful !
Love the food here and the service was exceptional. Noise level high so hard to hear dinner companions!
My family and I LOVE to honor our special occasions with the AMAZING food at Castelli’s. From the extraordinary service, to the pianist, to the presence of folks waiting to make sure you never want for anything, this is our spot! Laura our waitress was fantastic! When you go make sure you finish your meal with a piece of sweet Spumoni pie. Now I’ve made myself hungry! Go to Castelli’s, you’ll love it!
