Every time we visit the Indian Wells area we visit Castelli’s. The energy level is great and the food is spectacular. Everyone always enjoys their meal and the service is great.

Hated it. The food was bland, I hated the room we sat in, overall the Desert has many other restaurants that not only better, but when you request a table in the bar area and then get seated in the far room so away from the bar Rea I might as well be in riverside!

I felt the food was over priced. I have had better pasta at Francesca’s in the Valley then here. My friend order the king crab legs and the price was way over what they should have been. $80.00 really. The noise level was impossible to hear a conversation at our own table and we were seated in an area with young children.

I won’t be coming back.

The garlic bread was amazing! I liked The cannelloni but would have liked the,option of a white sauce instead of red. And it needed a bit more flavor in the filling. Wonderful service and and loved th ambiance. My friends garlic spaghetti was just ok. And the Tuttu De Mar need more seasoning. But we enjoyed the wine and evening. Prices seemed about right, just wish the food had been a bit better.

We have dined at Castelli's several times and there has been a tremendous change in the food, quality and service of this restaurant since our last visit. Our night was a huge disappointment. Starting with a reservation at 7:30, our table was not ready until 8:00 and we were sat right by the kitchen door. Though the waiter we had initially seemed attentive, he was no where to be found once our orders were taken. Our food arrived and was literally left on a tray next to our table for several minutes until we asked a bus boy to serve us. The food was almost inedible. One pasta dish with seafood looked as if a can of stewed tomatoes had been poured on top and the pasta was mushy. Another dish of veal parmesan was a mystery as it did not look or taste like anything known. A chicken dish came out like a big thick blob with sauce on it and the two side dishes were awful. The garlic bread was literally store bought plastic Italian bread topped with a spread. No one checked on our table during the meal. I can only assume that there is a new chef and the quality of ingredients has been brought down to cut costs.

Food was good but waiter tried to use misleading information about the salmon special until pressed about whether it was fresh caught wild and when versus farmed.

Service was fair.
The noise level was abysmal. Even sitting at a smaller table we had to practically yell to hear each other.

A fun, friendly atmosphere with food that is just what one wants when looking for good, unpretentious Italian food. Comfortable place with bartenders who probably are used to seeing the same people over and over and don't really go out of their way to try to make a first timer want to make it a regular haunt.

Unfortunately one of us had the god father and the Shrimp was very tough and not very flavorful. One of the other party had the scampi and stated the same thing. Hoping it was just a bad night for shrimp.

Usually I have a wonderful dining experience, but last week I ordered the heirloom tomatoes with burrata and it just wasn’t as excellent as I expected. The tomatoes were too hard, the burrata not creamy, at all, and the presentation was lacking.
I won’t order this appetizer again.
However, the filet mignon and lobster were cooked to perfection!
Yes. I’ll be back for sure!

First time at Castelli’s! We enjoyed the escargots Italiano and beet salad, linguine pomodoro & chicken fettuccine Alfredo, Carmel ice cream and cappuccino. Fabulous service by Laura and two other team members. Only drawback was the table location, as we were seated in the patio area next to the entrance. Next time we will request table inside the restaurant in order for improved ambiance.

Getting tired of waiters saying “no worries” or “not a problem “? Won’t happen here. Staff is attentive, service is immediate but not intrusive, and very helpful. We ordered a wedge salad, for example, and the waitress asked if we wanted to split it and have it chopped up. Perfect idea and just enough food for each of us. Best Italian ambience and menu in the valley. The roasted artichoke hearts were superb. And the chiopinno: perfecto!
