I always, always have a great experience at Celestino's. Calogero, the owner, is warm and welcoming and Mario is the best waiter (manager) you can always ask for.
I thought it should be very good place with big menu but it is not Good.
Made our reservation two weeks prior and got put outside without being asked what our preference was. Lentil soup was ok. Sea Bass was accompanied by a sliver of mashed potatoes. Wine was overpriced.
Service was poor. Menu stated rigatoni, but was served linguini. Menu stated an assortment of veges but was only served broccoli. Overall the food is very good —-the service is very bad.
We loved the wait staff! Mature servers who had each other’s backs. We weren’t clear who our official waiter was, as different people helped at different stages, but they made it clear they were coordinating. Comfortable dining room, conversation all around, but not loud, just lively. Age of patrons skewed older, but that was fine for us. Perfect experience for a special dinner.
Have not been here for some time (moved to Utah almost two years ago), but ALL the servers and the bartender remembered us. The service, the food and the drinks were all fantastic! We will come back every time we are in town.
Food was yummy and our waiter was outstanding.
Out of town friends and I enjoyed the European service (unobtrusive, but always at the ready) and Italian cuisine. Our pastas and osso bucco were excellent; the birthday tarts were a surprise and the waiters' jovial birthday song made it fun. The ambiance is understated, comfortable and relaxed, and we could hear eachother speak!
Brought a date here. We arrived around 730 so I asked if we could be seated earlier and they said yes. My date loved her angel hair pasta and I liked my penne pasta also
Wonderful as Always
Took almost 45 minutes to receive our scallop appetizer, despite asking three times. Foos is always good, but cannot treat repeat customers so poorly.
Celestino is consistently good and authentic! Love the fresh ingedients and beautiful combinations. A great Italian "go-to"!!
Always the freshest pasta in Pasadena.
I have never had a bad meal at Celestino. They consistently provide great food and great service! One of Pasadena's best :-)
I never expected to find such an authentic Italian restaurant in Pasadena! The food was extraordinarily well-prepared, the menu very extensive. We highly recommend the petite mushroom omelette with truffle appetizer, the osso bucco, and the duck ravioli. For dessert, definitely the panna cotta! Our waiter was exceptional--professional, knowledgeable, and welcoming. On the negative side, being seated by the prep station was a bit noisy. All in all, a gem worth visiting.
The food is delicious, but the service is abysmal at best.
Food was delicious and service was great! Good food and dessert
It was okay. I wasn't blown away by it, and the service was slow. It looked like they were short staffed.
had 5;30 dinner as we left Santa Anita and perfect timing as the restaurant wasn't full and we enjoyed great service from the staff. by the time we left it was jam packed and quite noisy due to slow check in of parties, which had people standing around entrance/bar.
from food perspective, it is a solid italian spot. pastas savory and no overuse of garlic, which is rare!
