Have lived in Danbury for years but have never tried Castello. After reading all of the positive reviews, we took a chance and finally tried it. We have to say we were very pleasantly surprised. Service was wonderful and the food was great. We will definitely be back.

Food was ok... but for the price I would have expected better. The meatballs tasted like Cosco frozen ... portions were small and the food tasted ok otherwise. Overall not a bad place but not at all what I expected. Costello is an average restaurant with average quality food.

Always a great meal with impeccable service. I think this is truly a hidden gem in Danbury. With so many dining establishments a step above fast food, Castello’s is a welcome throw back to fine dining. Without the price or air of pretense. They have the best Caesar salad anywhere (they make it at the table), amazing pasta cooked perfectly, fresh seafood, and delicious desserts. The strawberry flambé is a must. If you are looking for great Italian food with old school, professional service at a reasonable price, this is your place.

The quality of the food was excellent. The service was excellent except they forgot to bring us our side dish. We reminded the waiter who had an order fried up for us..it was for the highly recommended fresh potato chips which were delicious. I would say the portions for the price were a bit small on some of the entrees we had. My husbands portion of the chicken saltimbocca was larger than the others. They had a very small portion of the vegetables that accompanied the entrée. Plate looked a bit empty. But again the food was excellent..

Last minute find in Danbury. Service was great, there was a abundance of servers always around. Food was very good, baked clams were on the smaller side though, i think they were manila clams (add more clams if using such small clams). Besides that I would recommend!

Went on a Thursday night so there weren't many diners, so service was quick but all the staff were very attentive. The food was excellent (we had veal) and the prices were reasonable. Diners were all seated in the bar area so the ambiance was lacking but there is a nice dining room that would normally be used on busier nights. We plan on coming again.

We had a very disappointing evening right from the onset. The parking has always been problematic in that location. The Valets were running back and forth across a busy two way street in the cold without reflective clothing on. We had a 7PM reservation and were in the restaurant a bit late waiting for the valet to take our car. We entered a very loud and crowded venue. All four of us were given a ticket to have a complimentary glass of wine from the bar, which seemed like a very nice touch. We did not realize at the time that the glass of wine was probably to keep us busy and patient since we did not get seated at a table until 1 hour and 10 minutes later. We were told several times that it would be just a few more minutes since people continued to occupy the table. When we were finally seated, we were just left sitting there with our empty wine glasses, water and a bread basket. After an extended period of time, I walked up to one of the servers and asked for someone to take our drink and appetizer order. Thank goodness we also gave our meal order at that time. We finally got our meals at 9:45.

Saying you are sorry several times would have been great if they had been attentive when we were finally seated. It was also hard to appreciate the 20% discount since nothing was said when we got our check. We noticed it ourselves at the bottom of the bill.

On a good note, my Chicken Francese was tender and tasty but I still won't go back for seconds.

I do not take giving poor reviews lightly because I believe that these reviews do have an effect on businesses and therefore overly critical reviewers should be ashamed of themselves. Castello's was an awful experience and I would not go back. Truthfully I have to begin questioning the legitimacy of all of the positive reviews. Without the emotion, the dining room was cold temperature wise, dark and sterile but who really cares if the value and food is good; it is not. Castello's main focus is clearly profit margin, not the food or the experience. Several servers hovered around our table which was ridiculously uncomfortable yet with all of that hovering they never asked if all was good..it wasn't. High prices, small cheap portions made with no love, very average food with no salads or pasta's included. $12.00 for a very average drink $32.00 dollars for 5 medium sized scallops and a very small, plain serving of risotto.
Gouge is the word of the day. Additionally there were two women sitting right in front of us passionately complaing to management about all of the very same issues we had; it was ugly. We left with no coffee or desert and again, were never asked if all was well even though we had servers on top of us the entire time. Never again.

I really enjoyed our visit here. All items ordered were really good. Some items are prepared at the table (At ours, the Caesar Salad, for example, prepared completely from scratch).

The regular menu has a really wonderful selection, but the specials also all sounded fantastic! Real attention is paid to the presentation of everything.

The entry to the restaurant was a bit strange, for me. And I couldn't shake the chill from the winter air. But the place is really nicely set up. And the people serving us were really fantastic! Attentive to what we needed, and engaging in conversation.

For us, a truly great find that I highly recommend!

This was our first time dining here and we had a very early reservation. The very professional staff was ready for Saturday night guests. Because we were so early the staff had little to do but serve us. Glad to see the staff was very professional. Served us with great timing between courses. We had an excellent meal, oysters, soups and great entrees. I like the very user friendly parking lot under the restaurant. If I had to make one suggestion it would be to suggest they improve the decor in the dining room. We will be back soon!

The food was very good, but you felt you were in a VFW not an Italian restaurant. There is a lot of room for improvement , lacking atmosphere and service. I would try it again if they changed the look.
