The food was exquisite, the service was phenomenal... I truly recommend the experience to anyone that reads this review Five Stars😇🤗☺️
Excellent meal and service! the langostino special linguini was beautiful. We had an early dinner pre-theater. The service was spot on and got us out in good time without rushing.
Very very good. Service even better than usual. The special beet salad was amazing. Simone was great too.
From the moment we arrived, our experience was wonderful. Our reserved table was ready and we were seated immediately. Our waiter was knowledgeable, professional, personable, and more than accommodating. The food was delicious and served quickly.
it was Mother's Day. Maybe not a great night to dine out. We waited a long long time!
My review would have been much better had I not had to threaten to leave after waiting for one and three quarter hours for our entrees, which then took another ten minutes or more to arrive. Others around us were seated long after we arrived and received their meals long before ours. The waiter never apologized, no one ever gave us an excuse or explanation for the unreasonable delay, but instead someone from the kitchen (not our waiter or the maître d') meekly brought five deserts to our table that we accepted but frankly would have preferred to avoid.
Very disappointed with the service we got. I choose this restaurant as I had dined here before and had a great experience. Invited my Cousin and Aunt to celebrate Mother’s Day with us. There were 10 of us the sitting was a little congested. It was ok with us. Then comes the bread basket, 1 for basket was served for us 10, not even enough to have 1 bread each. Our waiter was just in a hurry and always we gave to find him or flag him to order something. Drink we’re not refilled, nobody was checking on our table, like the whole meal we have to hunt him down. Never checked if we like our good. Never ask if I wanted more wine. As in were there on our own. I get it, it’s Mother’s Day and it’s busy! But no effort was made to make this fine dining a fine dining!!! $470. And yes I still give a tip!!!
In fairness, food was great. The tiramisu was to die for and NO I will never dine here again.
I’m sure there are happy and satisfied costumer but this special night....we felt left out. I feel bad for my cousin and her family who drove all the way from the valley just to have a very disappointing experience in this place.
The food was excellent. We were seated in a room off the main dining room - it was quieter (we asked for a quiet table), but the room had no charm. If you want to be in the livelier part, be sure to specify you want the main dining room.
The service also was excellent. The only glitch was Celestino's credit card reader wasn't working when we were ready to pay. Fortunately I had cash.
not great food I was expecting from the Drago Brothers. Disappointing and I won't be back.
Celestino never disappoints.. great food and service.. we were not rushed and enjoyed a wonderful leisurely dinner with an old friend...
Waiters were quite pushy, sort of like “what do want? No wine? No dessert?” “Here’s the check”. No thank you .
Still going strong after all these years. Felt like revisiting an old friend. Terrific birthday dinner.
You are one of my favorite restaurants, but it was just not a good night. The table next to us were celebrating a birthday and they're so loud we could not hear each other talk. There were 6 at the table and they're beyond loud the entire time. We think the kitchen lost our order as we sat for well over an hour waiting for our dinner once we ordered. The veal scaloppini was mediocre, as was my pasta with porcini mushrooms from your special mushroom menu. However the ravioli with morels and truffles was great...We all shared bites. Beat salad was also great.
I wish I could write a better review but I can't from Friday night.
Food and service excellent.
The pasta is very good here. The Branzino was ho-hum. Service not particularly fast or warm.
Overall we prefer Gale's.
Food was fabulous!
Drinks are pricey, food is a good value for quality, will continue to go back
Never disappointed with this amazing restaurant. The atmosphere, the service, the food, and a wonderful wine list all add up to a perfect dining experience.
Always have a good experience at Celestino! The food is excellent, the owner comes around to chat. Also the waiters are always the same...very low turnover, which says a lot.
Splendid. No pretenses. Charming service, contemporary and traditional Italian crafted plates. Always just right in every way for a business lunch.
Consistently great Italian food done right with a good wine pour - prices are very reasonable - one of our go to places in Pasadena
Good food, but with an unusual twist/preparation. Salad was just okay and overpriced.
The food and service is excellent!
Fantastico come sempre! Our party of four sampled the savory tomato and vegetable soups, the mixed green salad, the calmari steak and tricolore salad, all delightful start to the evening. The creamy lasagne was melt in the mouth delicious. The veal and rabbit entrees were wonderful. The tiramisu was a heavenly way to end the meal.
Poor service. Chaotic environment. Charged for soda water on top of $14 drinks. Server never came after being seated, we had to ask who our server was. Owner/manager came to take our order, but what was brought was not was we ordered. Food was OK, but not worth the frustration.
Good place for talking , eating, especially for family gathering
Excellent food , service and atmosphere!
Always great food!
It is a nice restaurant with very good italian food. It is a in a higher price class, especially the vines are very expensive.
One of my favorite places. Always delicious Italian cuisine and an extensive menu supplemented by daily specials. Service is warm and welcoming, more so if you speak a bit of Italian. Free parking around the block at the rear is a real treat. In over 10 yrs of eating here, I've never tried anything that wasn't excellent, whether fish, meat, or pasta. Osso buco, branzino, lasagne, ragu sauces for pasta, all are first-rate. Salads are fresh and generous. Soups are wonderful. If you haven't been there, go now!
Great food and service; best Italian cuisine in the area.
Quiet dinner on a Tuesday night. Few people there after a large dinner party left. Excellent food and service as usual.
We had a fabulous dinner, some of the best Italian food ever (and we've been to Italy several times). BUT, it was Sat night and they were very busy and lost our order. They were very apologetic and gave us some appetizers to tide us over. BIG DRAWBACK:the wine by the glass is barely drinkable. It's a disgrace.
Lasagna and side of meatballs (not on the menu) was delicious.
We had a great dinner at Celestino. We started with the Tomato Bread soup and the Beef Carpaccio, both of which were great. We then shared the penne past and the rissotto -- again very good. Service was great and our waiter helped us choose a sumptuous wine. In fact, the food was terrific but the wine was better yet and was fairly reasonably priced (~$90).
We have dined at Celestinos frequently. We have always had wonderful dinners but this time it was the best meal we have ever had. Fabulous!!
Really good artichoke salad and the entrees were great. Vodka pasta and the salmon. Bartender makes an awesome vodka martini.
We had a wonderful dinner at Celestine’s. We brought our daughters and were given a very nice table in the outdoor area in the back. The service was outstanding and everyone was able to find just the right thing to order. The pastas here are delicious and varied. Our waiter recommended the pasta with mushrooms and pheasant, and it was really extraordinary. All in all a wonderful night.
The food was delicious!
Celestino never disappoints. The food was very tasty and well prepared. Service this time was a little slow. They had a truffle menu which we did not order from, but it looked good. Not cheap, but still worth it.
