About Il Castello

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."



Zagat Survey 2011/2012:
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.

The food and service were excellent. The noise level was very high that I had trouble hearing people at our table. The other couple has eaten here during the week and told us that noise is not a problem. We will definitely return but on a weekday night.

Small restaurant so the noise level is low. Food is fresh and reasonably priced. Good service. Valet parking takes a little long on a cold Saturday nite.
I will definitely be back.

When we walked in, the place was packed so full there was literally no place to stand. Luckily it wasn't winter, and the owner quickly brought us drinks to happily pass the 5 minute wait outside. The staff was attentive and friendly, and the food was outstanding. No disappointments whatsoever and we'll definitely be back.

We love Il Castello and try to dine here as often as we can. Lenny, the owner, and his staff are very attentive . The food is consistently great and prepared to perfection. It was very crowded for a Tuesday night but service never suffered. We would recommend Il Castello to anyone looking for their forever restaurant.

Food was excellent! I am a Chicken Scarpiello snob. The dish was perfectly done! The drinks were great (a bit pricey) and the service could not have been better. I liked how the noise level was not too high, so you could actually have a conversation. They had an enormous list of specials, even for a Sunday night. All in all, this is definitely being added to our stable of "go to" restaurants.

for a Saturday night, the service and food remains true to their excellent style. The owner and waiter greeted us as old valued patrons( which we are). The wine selection was just right for our wine savvy table. Everybody had different appetizers and main course, which w all shared with a taste. All were excellent.
if you like garlic, just ask for additional, especially the Cesar sald .Just say "Larry's Cesar" and they will know.

This is our all time favorite "eat ou" & "go to" restaurant. it is nearby in a non nondescript building on the main street of Mamaroneck with valet parking if needed. The train station is nearby and has lots of spaces in the early evening.
Their cocktails are more than ample, along with a good wine list.
The food is always outstanding. lots of specials each night depending on the season.
One of our favorites are the table-side Cesar salad preparation. If you like garlic, ask for Larry's version. Other great dishes are Chicken Scarparello, most pastas and their duck specials. They always have branzino and dover sole finished at the table.
Lenny the owner has another restaurant close by. On Mondays, when Il Castello is closed, visit Lenny's Steakhouse a mile away( open everyday), to get similar prepared dishes as well as prime steaks.
Every meal is a winner and take it from someone who eats there almost weekly or more.
