Loved the ambience. The outdoor lighting was romantic and the wine we selected was perfect.
Due to the pandemic, these restaurants are struggling. It is important for us to support them. Celestino's went above and beyond to make our visit wonderful. Food was amazing as always. Service was beyond wonderful. They made us feel welcome, happy and full. thank you to their entire staff. Happy holidays.
food was incredible
service was very friendly and kind
maby some music will help ...
Food was great, Server was great, & outdoor area was nice! Highly recommend!
Celestino has such a lovely patio in the back, the tables are well-spaced and the food and service are always outstanding!
The waiter was excellent knowledgeable on food & drinks made excellent recommendations.
Celestino continues to serve excellent Italian food with Sicilian warmth, even in the chillier ambiance of outdoor dining in November. The terrace has heaters and is partially closed in with glass, which helps. They have returned to their pre-COVID-19 long list of daily specials, among them their wonderful baby artichoke, pecorino and arugula salad with lemon dressing. It's surprisingly creamy-smooth and refreshing. The lamb chops were juicy, plump and generously sauced. The guests enjoyed their grilled branzino, pumpkin tortellini and chicken milanese, which is always a winner. Here's hoping the restaurant survives the endless lockdowns.
Celestino has the authentic Northern Italian vibe. I had the OssoBuco over risotto and my wife had the Pheasant Pappardelle with Mushroom Soufflé as an appetizer which had the best Truffle cream sauce I've had since Palio closed in New York City. The Arugula and Artichoke salad was a perfect palate cleanser. We did not have room for a pasta course but will be back soon! Our waiter helped us find wine selections, was super attentive without hovering, and the desserts, ricotta cheese cake and pannacotta were divine. The fact I can remember each dish is testament to the level this place it at. You will not be disappointed.
Love Mario! He is the best!
What a nice and pleasant spot for an outdoor lunch. The courtyard is lovely and quiet. The staff attentive and more importantly very safe. Food was delicious.
It’s always a wonderful experience: great service, incredible menu, and perfectly prepared food.
Great food as usual and Nice set up for outside dining. Only problem was no heaters so a little chilly!
Need space heaters in rear patio as it gets colder
We had dinner at Celestino a couple of nights ago and it was excellent as always. They have plenty of outdoor seating, so social distancing was no problem, almost like the old days. The mushroom soup was the best I've ever had, the fusilloni delicious.
We arrived and the restaurant did not have our reservation through Open Table. Even though I showed the confirmation on my phone to the ‘Maitre D’’ he argued with me and said that they could not honor the reservation nor could they honor the Open Table 1,000 point bonus. He then pointed to an outside table on the street and indicated that we could take that one - even though the restaurant was empty. The food is always excellent at Celestino, but the service staff is abominable. We doubt we’ll be going back.
Fabulous service and fabulous food!
Love Celestino’s. It’s the best pasta around. Always consistent.
First time in a long time we were disappointed overall. Not up to their usual game.
Service improved. Food was abundant and tasty. This is among my no. 1’s for Italian food in Pasadena.
Mario was awesome and accomodating to my food allergies
No wine list. Staff running around too much. I expected a 5 but turned out to ba a three at best. Setting is pretty good, but no wine list is inexcusable.
My Cesar chicken salad wasn’t good as the food tasted there before.
My guest’s pasta special wasn’t very good
Even during this pandemic, Celestino has captured the dining experience with their outdoor patios, never missing a beat on their service and excellent food plus safe and social distancing. Thanks for always having us your first priority.
Consistently the most delicious Italian food in Pasadena!
It was very nice that evening. The table was wonderful and the fish was outstanding.
They need to turn some music on to uplift the mood.
Celestino’s never disappoints. Food and service were outstanding as always.
Very good food, and ambience my date and I really will go back
We celebrated my Birthday there. There service was more than excellent. The mixed drinks were perfect. The appetizer was delicious and the Mushroom soup was so earthy. I ordered the lamb osso buco. It was great for dinner and a marvelous leftover meal. My wife had Pheasant Pappardelle pasta which she loved.
We were so happily surprised t get a Birthday song and Panna Cotta with a candle. Thank You for making my Birthday on the 20th and my wife’s on the 10th so memorable.
Fine. Good service and delicious food.
Food is always good here. Service was surprisingly mediocre tonight, and the waiter was not at all attentive or caring. That was a disappointment. But they are doing a good job at keeping the place nice during these difficult times.
It went smooth sat us down immediately. The food was tasty, happy to serve us.
The ambiance was great and so was the food. The attention was also appropriate,
Ordered take-out. The phone exchange, streetside pick up were efficient, friendly...a pleasure. 3 courses were tasty, though not exceptional. We enjoyed a lovely Italian dinner.
Thank for a beautiful dinner! Food and Service was top notch!
Always a safe bet..good real Italian food with good service.The Back Patio is quieter than the one on Lake.
The half chicken was very dry, I unfortunately had to send it back. The food, in general, was basic. I wouldn’t say bad, but nothing to write home about. I had higher expectations given the reviews I had read before I dined.
Celestino has always been my favorite 'go to' restaurant and Carlos is an amazing person and server with such professionalism. The way you are being so creative with the new dining experience is wonderful. May you continue to have great success. Thank You.
Will be back many times!!!
Limited selection of wines. Nice garden and great for social distancing.
I recommend it!
