We truly enjoyed every minute of our amazing dinner at Castello Ristorante Antico!! The talent that went into the homemade pasta was both delicious and visibly appealing. The calamari was the absolute best I have ever had. We will definitely return to this fantastic restaurant when we next visit the Vaughan area. Such a fabulous dining experience from beginning to end.
We sat outside and the setting was very nice. We had ordered Calamari to start. Our main dishes were shrimp linguine and argula risotto. All three dishes were excellent. The service was also very good. Staff are very friendly and engaging. Haim was our waitor. We hope he is there next time we go.
Amazing service, proper sanitized during covid. Definitely would return.
Drove by this place and decided to book a reservation for later that evening. Our server and hostess were so nice, and provided a great experience! The food was to die for! I was expecting it to be a lot more expensive for the quality and presentation of the food, but it had to be one of the best pasta dishes I’ve ever had. We finished with coffee which was amazing, and a piece of their cheesecake. We devoured the hot oil they provided for our app (bruschetta), and loved it so much we bought a bottle! We live an hour away from this restaurant, and I will 100% drive that hour again to have a delicious, filling meal! Thank you so much.
Olympia was a great waitress!
Initial wait for service was a little long however they were quite busy. Service was great throughout dinner. Food was excellent; definitely will come back.
Excellent restaurant great value. Will recommend to all my family and friends
Great service and great food. Always able to accommodate a reservation.
Took my wife to Valentine’s Day dinner,, got seated fast , service was great and food is amazing,great authentic Italian food , our family normally reserved this place for occasions here..
highly recommend this gem to anyone who wants to experience a home cooked Italian meal,who’s looking for a great dining experience & quiet & intimate..
Will gladly be heading back soon
Awful experience for what was supposed to be a romantic New Years Eve dinner. Whoever answered the phone so I could confirm my reso was horribly rude. They sat my boyfriend and I in a secluded corner alone essentially behind a curtain like they were embarrassed by us. They didn’t tell me they’d be giving us a reduced menu so the majority of what we wanted to order wasn’t available. They got our order wrong. They left the sticker on the lemon with our calamari. It was just so bad. Would never go back or recommend.
Thank you for a great evening. Our party enjoyed all our meals, waitress was nice and very friendly. Owner Maria was nice she came over to talk to us about a party we were considering to have at Castello Ristorante Antico. Unfortunately we declined only due to time slot available. I would recommend this restaurant to friends. Thank you
A nice family friendly restaurant. The food is average as well as the service. They messed up our orders twice but we’re quite apologetic.
It really saddens me to write a review like this
We arrived at 6:20 am were seated right away
Olga our waitress came over and introduce herself took our drink order and ordered our starters
We didn’t get them till 7;15
When they arrived we order our main
1 Quattro stagione
I Spaghetti ala chitarra
I pasta with chicken and pesto
1 pasta ala vodka
Our main arrived at 8:20!!!
When it arrived there was an error with one of the pizza
We did not receive the Quattro di stagione
It was a totally different pizza
There were no artichokes on it
When we notified the waitress about this she argued that it was the right pizza
Then we called the manager over and explained what has happened
She agree yes it was not the right pizza
She went back and reorder the correct one
She left and Olga return stating that she punched in the correct order but the cook had mad an error and would be making a new one
Then the manager returned and told us that
When the cook went to get the artichokes he notice that they were not a good quality to put on the pizza
So he just sent one that he thought we would like
Are you kidding me!!!
First 2 different stories
Then no one came to the table to tell us that there wasn’t anymore artichokes and would we like something different
They decided for us!!!
Also our drinks were never refilled always had to ask for mor water
Olga was more interested in a table of quests who knew all the waitresses !! They were seated 40 mins after us but received their meals way before us she was constantly huffering over that table!!!
Forget about all the other Guests that where seated !!!
In the end we finished our meal that took almost 3 hours to eat and paid our bill and left
Also they gave us a free pizza to take home
I’m sorry but a restaurant who claims to be the best Italian restaurant around need to relook at that claim
Thank you for listening
Good food and good venue for a party (baby shower, bridal shower, birthday or engagement party), but we went for our wedding anniversary and still enjoyed the experience
Because it’s also a venue for party, it meant the service was a little slow, (it took a while for the waiter to take our order, however after we placed our order, food came very quickly). This is because the staffs were attending to the 3-4 different events taking place.
Nevertheless I would still return - husband loved it too
Friendly and helpful staff. Delicious food and reasonable price.
Celebrated our Mom’s “80th” Bdy here. Incredible Service...our waitress was Patricia, she was fantastic! Food was great. My Mom was a chef for 37 years and loved it here. Trust me that says a lot. Extremely accommodating, comfortable atmosphere. Will definitely come back again for no reason other than for a nice dinner out. Don’t let the location tucked in a strip mall fool you. A little diamond in the rough.
Thank you everyone for a memorable evening.
We cannot say enough good things about Castello Ristorante. We went there for my daughter's 25th birthday and were blown away by the food and the service. There are a lot of good Italian restaurants in Woodbridge but this must be the best one that we have gone to. Everyone in our party ordered a different type of pasta and each person raved about their food. The appetizers and salad were very good as well and the bread was excellent.
An amazing dining experience and we will definitely go back.
Our first time. Mary was outstanding. Warm, engaging and friendly. He assistant, didn't get her name, was so attentive and pleasant. Water glasses never went empty, plates taken away immediately. Not sure why there are negative reviews. Place has been there for 20 odd years. Service was outstanding. Food was fresh. My salmon was cooked perfectly as I requested, medium. We will be back!
We were welcomed by a very friendly staff and given a seat that we liked.
The owner engaged us with a little history of the restaurant and some menu suggestions.
All in all a fabulous date night with my sweetheart. I'm glad we went to Castello.
We will be going back!!
We came for my mother’s 90th birthday lunch. Service was friendly and accommodating. The food was very tasty.. it unfortunately took awhile for our food to arrive because there were two other large parties going on in the back area of the restaurant
We were a party of nine including 5 children. After ordering 5 bottles of water we asked for a jug of tap water. The waitress needed to ask for permission to do so. I found that slightly off. In addition one entree arrived after we all finished our meals. Not impressed. The food was generally liked but the kids were disappointed with their pizzas.
Friendly service and nice atmosphere is quickly forgotten post the meal. Bread was not fresh and sauce was too acidic, almost undercooked. Char on crostini tasted like it came from an open gas flame and was unappetizing. Desserts tasted like they came straight from the freezer.
Fantastic dinner! Lasagna was delicious. Definitely going back again.
