The best in the last night of the season. Perfect.
We were in Palm Desert to celebrate our 50th wedding anniversary and went to our favorite restaurant. Manager and our server were both fantastic! Food was delicious, as usual. It was their last weekend before closing for the summer. We’ll be back when the open again!!
Family weekend away! Birthday!
One of our favorite restaurants in the desert. We keep coming back for more.
Castellis is always good, a classic, steadfast bastion of old-school Italian with great ambiance, superb service, and delicious food.
Castelli’s is absolutely wonderful and is a special place! Just go!
My husband and I just love this restaurant. He has been a loyal fan for over 30 years. Everyone here makes you feel like you are a member of the "family". Great food, great service, consistent quality... a sure bet every time!
The food was delicious. The ambiance was perfect. The waiters are attentive and excellent.
What a fabulous meal with incredible staff and piano player! We will be back whenever we are in Palm Springs!
Our second visit to this gem. Always feels like we our back home on "The Hill" in St. Louis where the Italian food is simply marvelous. Javier, our server, was very attentive and welcoming.
Lovely atmosphere. Great food. Romantic pleasant setting.
From the time we entered the restaurant until we left, the staff was very pleasant and attentive. Great service and yummy food. I don’t think we left anything on our plates it was so good. I had the salmon special that had a lemon caper sauce and hubby had the lobster ravioli. Both were cooked perfectly. Creme brûlée for dessert was very creamy and tasty. We loved the ambiance too. Definitely a place we will visit again.
We are Italian food snobs, since we hail from Chicago. The other local Italian entries are wide of our mark and we do not go. However everyone loves Castelli's so we decided to open our closed minds and are we ever glad we did. We feel at home with real East Coast Italian fare. This place goes into the rotation for sure.
Always outstanding and a valley standout.
Service was outstanding but the food was a little short for us. Thought the food for the prices would be great, we had pastas and the sauces were bland. I love sauces but these were not satisfactory and the chicken was hard. We were first time customers and had a gift card though we weren't really paying but the food should be their best, always. we were disappointed. I would maybe try it again.
On a hot desert evening, Castelli’s was a cool and quiet place to dine with friends. We’re glad we saved room for their Chocolate Mousse!
Nice restaurant that has been around for a long time. Food was good, with some notable items, but pretty standard Italian fare otherwise. A bit pricey, but the service is very good. They were busy on Father's Day, and the noise level was pretty high. If we return, I will have to compare the visits and update the review. Very friendly staff.
Would prefer main dining room instead of the patio area.
We enjoyed it very much, but the room we were in was full, and the noise level was very loud, we could barely ourselves talk.
Excellent atmosphere, along with excellent food and service. I will be back soon. But where are my points??
We try to visit Castelli’s several times a year - and especially before they close for the summer. This time, we were given a lovely, quiet table in the corner where we could chat and enjoy the experience. The wait staff are all very professional and the food is consistently excellent.
This is our third visit and this latest time the food was mediocre. Service above average, however the red sauce not real tasty and linguine over cooked.
I am always impressed with the food at Castelli's. This time I went two nights in a row and was very pleased.
This restaurant is one of our favorites to take business associates visiting the area. Very consistent. You can always count on an excellent meal and outstanding, personable servers like Miquel.
In a world of falsehoods and hyperbole, it is difficult to find a sanctuary and true excellence in any field including dining and service. Let me say that the service we had was excellent from every single person. This was not the stiff and snooty version, but warm and friendly, yet very professional. Not a single suggestion for improvement, but I would like to set that aside as I want to talk about the meals. This is a meal that my wife and I will remember for the rest of our lives. The flavors were perfect, intense and delicate when they needed to be. My wife had the garden salad and I had a Caesar - both were chilled and flavorful. Hers was a large variety of vegetables that I could not imagine. Mine had an edge of garlic that many hold back on which is betrays the entire idea behind the salad. Our main course was as close to perfection as one could hope. My wife asked for and received a special pasta that included broccoli, tomatoes in a light sauce. Simple, but amazing taste. I had their Veal Picatta with a side of marinara pasta. Just the marinara was incredible. The veal was a large portion, but the taste was as good as you can imagine. I cut it into very small pieces in order to enjoy it for the longest time. Both of us are not light eaters, but we took quite a bit home with us. As others have said their bread was tremendous. We had a simple vanilla gelato for desert and it was light and ethereal. All in all, of course we will be back. The atmosphere was complemented by the soft piano and the darkened and cool ambiance. For two salads and two entrees and desert, we spent $100. One of the best investments in the quality of life we have ever spent. This high quality restaurant deserves our support because they deliver what they say and that is rare in today's world. They do this with an abundant of grace. Just as an aside, I am Sicilian, my father and grandfather were talented at creating cuisine and I have an experienced palate.
Old school at it's best! Top service, food and atmosphere with crooners in the background.
Great place, great ambience, great service.
Always enjoy dining there! owners are always generous to Assistance League of Palm Springs Desert Area, an organization I belong to.
The food and service were excellent. Always a good choice.
Felt a little rushed to order and the time between appetizer and main was too short.
Food and service were excellent. A wonderful dining experience for our party of 8.
The service is amazing. The food is delicious. Go there
Castelli’s is always an enjoyable experience. Food is excellent. The maître d’ made sure that we were comfortable and checked on us several times throughout the evening. I highly recommend it.
Great Birthday Celebration!
Always a great time with great food, service and Libations. Can’t beat Castelli’s
We had not been here in at least 3-4 years. We went because of Restaurant Week in PS. It is an older well established restaurant with a good following as far as we know. The waiter was good, we had a wonderful table, and most of meals were liked by the people who ordered them. Our friend had the veal and he could cut it with a fork. My wife had the veal and it was tough and probably over cooked. She probably should have asked for a new meal. The other two of us had the pork chops which were very good, but we got two huge chops that were more than we could eat. We are winos and the wine list is pricey and the corkage is too high to bring our wine. We got wine by the glass that was very acceptable. Anyone who has not tried this restaurant should at least do it.
Loved this restaurant and will definitely be back!!! Great food and service, and loved the music too!!!!
OMG! WOW! Upon our arrival the smiling Maitre 'D showed us to a table near the bar. We wanted quiet conversation. He then took us to another room, which I had never seen before, and it was lovely and quiet. There was a large 4 person table that suited us just fine. It was my cousin's birthday and she had just returned from a world wide cruise. We all wanted to hear about it. The Price Fix 3 course meal had so many choices. I had the Italian Wedge, the dressing was made from gonzolo cheese, so much better than blue cheese. My friends had the Ceasar Salad-superb. The entrees were to die for. Their Signature Pork Chops-unbelievable, Linguine Mara-so much great seafood, the tortellini with a creamy sauce-he loved it. And the piece de resistance, dessert-Spumoni Pie, Cheesecake, Tiramisu. Oh my! We will be back.
We went for Restaurant Week, and fount that Castelli's is carrying the specials for the whole month! We have already recommended Castelli's to a couple of friends. We were very pleased with the quality, taste and quantity of our meals. Everything came out piping hot, and very tasty. We are hoping to go back soon to try other menu items.
Excellent dinner for the four of us n Monday night for Restaurant Week. Javier, our waiter, was gracious and professional.u meals were very good and I would definitely come back again!
