New York Times Review. (10/23, 2010 by M. H. Reed) WORTH IT!
"Rediscovering the Art of Classic Details - Diners missing the serenity and Old World details once offered at the county’s high-end restaurants, many of which are now defunct, can rediscover some of those niceties at Il Castello."
Food: 24, Decor: 19, Service: 25.
This tiny jewel of a place in Mamaroneck, NY packs a big punch with delicious Northern Italian delicacies and an excellent wine list delivered via an impeccable staff.
Rich wood, chandeliers and civil sound levels provide an impress-a-date setting at a cost that is not that expensive for the neighborhood. It is recognized for excellence and one of the best Italian restaurants in Mamaroneck.
Pasta and bean soup
Grilled with roasted garlic, rosemary and olive oil
Scaloppini of veal sautéed with chopped shrimp and shitake mushrooms in a brown sage sauce
Incredible roast duck! At an Italian place!
Wonderful food and service
Ate inside for a change. it was quite chilly outdoors. Very generous and well-prepared cocktails. The food came out of the kitchen piping hot and as ordered. The service was impeccable. The Dover sole is done in a white lemony sauce. The duck was real crisp and moist on the inside with a not too sweet cranberry sauce. I do miss the table side service of the Ceasar salad and the finishing of the fish. This always made our dining here a very special treat. They have valet parking if needed. Plenty of street parking and also across the street in the Metro-North parking lot.
Always a perfect meal.
Old gem and always puts a smile on my face when I come here because the staff is so sweet. The food is prepared well and very simple and the fish is so good here! Highly recommend
Got there waited patiently for 30 mins to be seated. Meal took 2 and a half hours. Then came with cheque and ask us to pay and leave immediately. That did not go down well. Won’t be back.
Loved their outdoor space. Food excellent
Outstanding food & service
love this place! food is solid, service is so nice and accommodating. highly recommend
This is a small quiet gem
The food was outstanding
Wonderful baked clams
The Caesar salad was to die for
We shared many appetizers
Doc had the grilled octopus
Voot had the seafood special
I had pork chops with peppers
Bear had pork chops and Danny had the snapper which was outstanding
We were there for over 4 hours
Very fun night
Always consistent in service, terrific food and well done ambience
We had our first, cozy, warm outdoor winter dining experience-it was wonderful! The service was welcoming, accommodating, attentive and professional. Care was taken to be sure that the patio was well ventilated, all tables were adequately warmed by heaters and socially distanced. The regular menu and specials offered a variety of choices (though not too many as to be overwhelming), portions were generous and all of our food was delicious. Even when I reheated my left over veal scaloppine for lunch the next day it was still tender and moist!
Lenny greets his customers warmly. The food is delicious!
Fabulous experience as always!!
The food is always so authentic and so yummy that I order out 3-4 times a week from this cuisine. But I had the best veal Marsala in my life I couldn’t even believe it. I’ve loved this restaurant for years now and it definitely won’t be leaving my list any time soon. Ps their fig and prosciutto special was beyond this world. Definitely recommend for any event
Food not very good. Service adequate. A bit noisy. Way too expensive for quality of food
Won't be back
One of our favorite restaurants. The food is maybe the best in the area. Highly recommended.
Awesome restaurant: food, service and great outdoor dining!
Always very good, does not disappoint.
Great time, with excellent food and drink. Will return again!
Another great meal and the outdoor heated patio was perfect. We weren’t cold and the area was well ventilated and the tables well spaced. Looking forward to returning soon.
Everything on the menu is so good I can’t even explain. Even the outside patio which is heated very nicely and completely has ventilation with fresh air.The tables are perfectly distanced from table to table. I had the doversole and my wife had the veal parmigiana and it was great, My mouth was watering the second I saw it come out the kitchen. The wine was great and the staff their is amazing you feel like family right away from lenny and his boys. One of the most coziest restaurants I’ve ever dined at in my life and I 100% would be coming back. Definitely recommend this place and the owner is serious about the covid and keeping his customers safe.
My friend and I had lunch at the heated patio a few weeks ago and had a wonderful experience all around. The back area felt safe (closed from the elements but still open air) with heaters and tables spaced apart. Lenny provided exceptional service, from recommending a delicious and affordable bottle of wine to splitting our shared entrees onto individual plates in the kitchen. It felt like a professional Italian home cooked dining experience with delicious foods all around. We ended our meal with a tasty cappuccino and homemade limoncello.
We would definitely recommend this restaurant. Thank you for the excellent dining experience!
The new patio in the back yard of the restaurant gives us an additional good reason to enjoy the delicious Italian cooking.
We had a lovely meal last night. They just opened a newly renovated outdoor rear patio. There was plenty of airflow & heaters so we felt very safe but also warm and cozy. The food is always delicious and we are so grateful for this local favorite!
Really nice place! Waiters tried very hard to give top notch experience and were super nice, and there are heaters everywhere throughout the restaurant outside. Very nice outdoor set up, completely covered and very warm. Food was also pretty good.. not the most amazing ever but good quality and will be returning!
We went for my birthday, chose to eat inside (enclosed outdoor was available) and we were both very pleased. Since there were fewer tables noise level was nonexistent, not sure what it would be like otherwise, food and service were great
It was very nice outdoors and the waiter was very careful and masked. Real italian comfort food, with creative twists like figs and mushrooms on the veal.
Dinner was delicious as always. Wait staff was friendly and attentive. Love this restaurant!!
Always good and never disappointed
Always excellent meal thank you Lenny !!!
We were directed towards an alley in the back of the restaurant where we had our dinner. They didn’t have any lighting at all (not even candles), so we used our iPhone flashlights as light sources during our dinner. Fortunately, the services was super fast and the food was really good for what you pay. Overall, the restaurant is pretty good, but I don’t think we’ll be back until they start doing service inside again.
We went to Il Castello last night and had another great meal. They have done a great job with their outdoor dining! The newly opened rear patio space is cozy, warm and inviting. There is plenty of airflow and heaters so it feels very safe and comfortable. We are so happy to be able to continue to enjoy Il Castello especially during these crazy times.
Good food We will return
Best Chicken Scarpielo I have even had. Service was excellent, although eating outside was a bit noisy.(but safe).
For undisclosed reasons, the menu and staff was from Lenny’s Steakhouse the night we ate at Il Castello. The food was very good, but there were only 3 pasta dishes on the menu. Also,
The dish my husband ordered was not the dish he received. The entree was enjoyable, but no one bothered to tell him what he requested wasn’t available.
Having said that, the open-air setting was lovely. We will return to sample what IL Castello has to offer.
The best food around. We ordered appetizers fried calamari and special octopus cocked perfectly. For entries we there famous Branzini and a homemade cheese ravioli both excellent. Lenny is always there to make sure things are excellent and every time we it is .
Went there for Father’s Day they were able to accommodate everyone and didn’t have to wait for too long for drinks. Food was great, wait staff was awesome
