Castello Ratings and Reviews
Food is always delicious no matter what we order. Ceasar salad prepared table side .....wait staff are very accommodating and will fix something not even on menu. Warm personable servers and wait staff....engaging and humorous.
Try it...you won't be disappointed!
This will have been my second time coming to this restaurant. My wife being Italian she loved the environment. The interior decor, the food, and the wine were on point. This place is both suitable for a mature crowd as well as a family crowd. The wait staff were very friendly and constantly visiting our table taking care of our needs and always kindly asking if we needed anything else. When I made the reservation I mentioned that this was for my wife's birthday and due to this we were given what I consider one of the "best spots" for seating. The specials were of a variety and the prices that went along with it were very reasonable as well as the menu items. All in all, if you like Italian food and want to go somewhere considered nice this is the place. Definitely a gem of Danbury.
Castello was one of those rare choices where I asked the advice of OpenTable. Meeting friends attempting to locate a mutually distant choice but, wanting to find a rare jewel. Mission accomplished, I'd suggest to anyone the delicious dining experience was greater than my expectation as well as my guest. An outstanding menu only improved by a variety of nightly specials, insightful servers who were accommodating, knowledgeable and attentive. Please add a visit to your 2018 New Year resolutions, a true after the holidays gift to yourself, Ciao!
The food is consistently excellent! They make a table side Caesar salad that is Amazing! All pasta and fish entrees rival any 5 star NYC restaurant. That is what we have tried. Also the desserts are homemade and authentic Italian. This is a small family business. Two brothers wait and bus the tables any time we've been there. They are so congenial, funny and polite. The service is impeccable!
The ambiance is old Italian. It could use a little updating.
Took a client group for a dinner meeting and had made a number of special requests regarding menu and room set up. Everything was handled perfectly! The staff were highly attentive without being intrusive, and the food and wine were outstanding. I will definitely be back, and I highly recommend the restaurant for personal or business dining!
If you're looking for a great taste of Europe, look no further. As soon as you walk in, it feels as if you're in Italy. The ambience of the place makes you feel as if you're right at home with that wonderful, welcoming, & comforting feeling. The service and food was remarkable. I had the spaghetti alla Castello and it had the right amount of spiciness to my dish which made it very enjoyable for me. The service was excellent & efficient, we were able to enjoy our dinner comfortably & we didn't feel like we were being rushed at all. Definitely will be coming back again.
The service was excellent as was the food. Tableside preparation of Caesar Salad and also tableside service of Red Snapper were phenomenal! Highly recommend to anyone who truly enjoys an outstanding meal with service to match. One of the best restaurants in the area for certain.
Castello is a nice place to bring a date. The service here is professional and attentive. Nobody will rush you through your meal, and if you need anything all it takes is a glance at the waiter. This is unusual in an American restaurant and seems a throwback to the old world service model. When you want the check, you need to ask.
This was my second time at Castello and the food was again fantastic. It's always a pleasure to have a caesar salad made tableside in a wooden bowl. Our server did a great job and had a good sense of humor. I had the Chicken Scarpariello and it was delicious. The homemade sausage with a hint of fennel really made the dish shine. My date had Chicken Marsala and that was tender and tasty. I almost got the Branzino again. Last time I was here I got that and it was awesome. The tableside preparation was nice with that dish. A nice wine selection brought us a bottle of Montalcino.
WE skipped appetizers to save room for homemade dessert. The creme brulee had a nice crust and the chocolate lava cake with ice cream hit the spot too.
The service was awful!! I made a reservation for 2, and when we arrived, no one was at the desk to give us a table. We waited 10 minutes while 3 different waiters walked passed us and didn't help at all. I finally had to take it upon myself to ask the busboy to find us someone that could seat us. Once we finally got a table, we were given bread but no menus!!! We had to personally ask for those too, and on top of that we had to wait another 15 minutes for someone to come over and take our order. After waiting for food, they didn't clear our plates when we were finished but yet tried to rush us through eating.
Instead of serving up fake smiles and pretending new customers don't exist, they should've been concerned with giving us quality service!! The decor and ambiance was nice, but the service was BAD enough to ruin our experience. Never going back!
We have lived in the area for nearly 20 years and had not discovered this little gem. When looking for a spot for after graduation celebrations this popped up as having room for 12. We showed up with 13 and we're seated with no problem. The waitstaff really made dinner fun and engaging. Everyone's meals were excellent too many to list and the deserts fantastic. I will go back!
I have been coming to Castello for months now, sometimes I find myself there two- three times a week! The food is out of this world, and the service puts this place on top! I have never felt so welcome into a restaurant, most of the workers here are family and they make you feel right at home. The wine list by the glass and the bottle are very well put together giving you some options. If you need a suggestion just ask Nori, he is very knowledgeable. This place still does table side caesar salad is just wow, that is made by the younger brother Zenel. Tableside doesnt end there, they have bronzino and flambé both of which are a great show and taste even better. Fantastic, Highly Recommend!
My husband and I had a nice meal at Castello on our way to Boston from Pittsburgh. His seafood risotto was as delicious as my Veal Marsala. The beet salad and homemade bread basket was a welcome treat to our shared beet salad! My husband and I were left wondering why at some point during dinner that we were the only two diners!? Service was excellent too! If we lived close by, we would be regulars!
After hearing a lot of noise about this place and reading the great reviews, I decided to give ot a shot with my girlfriend. As soon as we walked up the marble staircase we were greeted with a friendly smile and seated promptly. I travel a lot for work so I get to try many places. My girlfriend had the soft shell crabs and shes still talkin about them. I had the 12 oz Rib Eye that was simply cooked to perfection. For appetizers we had the bacon wrapped scallops and the ceasear for two table side, both were amoung the best i've had. For dessert we got the chocolate lava cake that was perfect. I can't forget about the staff who were very well trained and knew their stuff. Castello has become my new favorite restaurant, I highly recommend this place.
Me and the wife went to Castello last night after driving by it for so many years, we have been hearing great things about the place and on arrival we were pleased. The marble stair case takes you from Downtown Danbury to italy. Merlinda(the hostess) took us to our table and even pulled out my wife chair for her. Nori the head waiter made his way to us from another table and greeted us as if he knew us for 20 years. Castello has a great menu but what will keep me going is the daily specials. I have the 12oz rib eye that was cooked to perfection, my wife had a branzino which she loves, which was deboned tableside. We normally do not have dessert but we saw a young man making bananas foster which I haven't seen in a while and it smelt amazing, so we had to get it. This banana foster is in the top 2 all time, neli the young man making it is a funny one. Over all Castello was a hit, me and my wife both enjoyed everything and I don't know if it could have been better. The staff here is welcomeing, professional, and knowledgeable about what they have. If you having been, you truly are missing out on one of Danbury best restaurants and a style of service and cuisine that would make any foodie happy
Food was acceptable, however, the servers seemed to pay attention to every other table except us. They completely ignored that we had finished our appetizers and had been waiting
just over 20 minutes before we actually called them over to look into our main course order, and even then, there was another wait. Service needs major improvement.
