Great atmosphere service was amazing a Pasadena gem!
Excellent food and exceptional service.
The folks at Celestino always treat us very well, and are willing to adapt and find you whatever you feel like eating. The quality of the food is great and Mario can find you excellent wine.
Our recent visit to Celestino was excellent because the music was at a quiet level so that we could still hear each other without having to shout. The waiter patiently recited the long list of specials and repeated a special when asked. He also volunteered information such as sauces that could be substituted on various menu items. After opening delicious white wine we ordered, our waiter promptly brought the ice bucket to chill it for us. Our appetizers and mains were delicious. It was, overall, an excellent experience.
Lunch on the patio at Celestino on a fall afternoon was great. Really good food. Excellent service. Terrific ambiance. All around terrific. Highly recommend.
First basket of bread seemed like it was left over from lunch. The second I requested was much better.
Great food, nice comfortable ambiance. I'll be back again!
Five-star experience ruined by their bathroom. One of the best restaurants in town, with one of the most disgusting bathrooms in town...
amazing as always!! The service is impeccable and the food delicious
A go to place. Wonderful food and great service. They are always flexible if you want something a little different.
So so good. I have food allergies and so it is sometimes hard to eat yummy Italian food but Celestino takes that into consideration and will make changes/additions so that you can enjoy. Best Risotto I ever had and it contained no cow diary. YUM
The pasta was over cooked and the staff showed no interest in diners. The forgot items and rushed us . The sauces were poor. We were not impressed with the food.
Excellent service and great food!
Mario and Luis spoiled us to the hilt! Definitely will be back
Love the food, the servers were very nice, I will definitely come back again.
Celebrating a birthday, and it was the perfect evening! Exceptional service, innovative food, and a super relaxed atmosphere. We’ve been here often and will continue to do so!
Always a great dining experience with exceptional food options.
We go there every time we’re in Pasadena. Great food. Charming service, unrushed, comfortable setting.
Very disappointing experience!!! While the ambiance and service were convivial, the chicken parmesan did not deserve to leave the kitchen. It was rubbery, almost plastic, must have been microwaved beyond embalmed. The waiter’s response, “Sorry, would you care for dessert?” Do yourself a favor… find a nice steakhouse in Pasadena
This was actually the worst lasagna I have ever had, and I am including frozen lasagna. I loved the ambience and have had good food here in the past, but if a place with the cost of Celestino's can't make a good lasagna, I have no interest in going back.
Great place to hangout after work! Outstanding service. Very friendly atmosphere! Halibut with spinach was excellent choice even though they have a lot of other good options. Desert with strawberries was delicious! Thank you!
Will go back again!
Amazing food!!! Highly recommend
Wonderful dinner great service
Valet parking available in the front or easy self park in the back.
The staff was friendly and attentive. The food was great. You could tell it was more authentic. Will go back to try more. Oh and the Panna Cotta was divine.
service is a huge part for restaurant business. if food, ambient, or deco is not great, an awesome waiter or waitress can change everything. it did not happen in Celestino. It was for birthday celebration which was noted when I made a reservation. it does not feel welcome. No one cares about our glass is low in wine. No friendly suggestion for food or desert. next table with same staff got treated way nicer. I felt i am being discriminated. is it because i am not Caucasian?
Its out mainstay. Lovely fresh food and great service.
Perfect as always! Love the food! Love the service!
Celestino never fails to please. It's truffle season, and the fresh truffles are ALWAYS welcome to any dish. I had shell's with scallops and shaved black truffles. One of the Best dishes I've had there.
Antonio was spot on with his recommendation. Mario brought us a red wine from Sicily that was an OUTSTANDING compliment to our dinner. BRAVO CELESTINO!
See you again soon.
We were very well treated and attended to. We’d mentioned that we had a theater engagement and were given excellent and rapid service. Very attentive staff, beautiful atmosphere, delicious food and wine. Who could ask for more?
Never had a bad food there, add that to the great owner and a friendly staff and you’ll have a great experience every time!
A Pasadena classic. Best Italian in San Gabriel Valley. The Drago family knows what they are doing!
Awesome experience. Always learning about a new wine. Or a new dish, maybe not on menu. Feels like your personal neighborhood restaurant.
High-end Italian cooking in an elegant setting. The specials are reliably excellent, and the pasta is light and delicious.
By far the best meal and service in Pasadena. Attention to detail is what sets it apart. Thank you for a wonderful experience.
We always enjoy Celestinos! The service is always outstanding, the food EXCELLENT and the atmosphere warm and inviting and not too loud.
Food was incredible and definitely some of the best Italian food you will find in Los Angeles County. Service was impeccable and was well located to quickly get over to the Rose Bowl.
Seated in a booth with lot of ambiguous staining on fabric, oily, stale food odors and food crumbs and grit on seat cushion and we were the first seating of the evening, it should have been clean. The staff was low energy, not unfriendly when interacting but when congregated together looked unhappy to be there. Food was okay, not bad not memorable, was definitely hoping for more given the reviews. Asparagus soup was tasty, beef carpaccio was overwhelmed by sauce, roast chicken had a nice crust was a little dry but overall flavorful and potatoes nicely done, pana cotta good but strawberry sauce had a bitter note. Restaurant needs a serious cleaning. Staff is good but details and appearances matter. For instance, as we left, two staff members stood by door, neither opened it for us. Little detail perhaps but they add a high end, cared for experience that keeps people coming back.
As usual, outstanding service, lovely ambience and delicious
food. We’ll keep going back again and again!
The service was outstanding. Our server arranged for us to have squid ink pasta, which wasn't on the menu. Yummy.
We have eaten here many times and have always been satisfied. Our last visit was our lobster/crab with pasta dish was a little dry. Carlos and all the waiters there are great. We had a party there with 25 people food and service were great then. We will be back with another large party in the future. It is our go to restaurant for Italian food and service.
