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.

Il Castello Ratings and Reviews
Consistently outstanding, with delicious food, warm and attentive service, and pleasant atmosphere. Lenny greets you by name and always checks to make sure you are happy with your dinner. Specials are numerous and reflect creativity. Excellent veal dishes; fish is top-quality. Branzino is especially good. Service is friendly; your water glass is replenished often. Valet parking is a definite plus, especially in cold weather, and is efficient. In sum, Il Castello continues to be a gem as well as an excellent value.
We have been coming here for quite some time since we discovered it. The food is terrific and the staff is so friendly and pleasant. They go out of their way to make your experience perfect. We not only go for occasional date nights but also for special occasions. It is perfect to bring a large family. There is something for everyone.
This Italian food is the highest quality presented and served with professional finesse by a terrific staff.
Same owners also have a sister restaurant in larchmont. Lenny’s which we love as much. Thanks to lenny for making these two fantastic dining choices in the sound shore. Love them both highly recommended!!!!
Lenny continues to make this proper Mamaroneck Restaurant a true gem for classic Italian dining. Listen carefully to the specials as each one is carefully selected based on the freshest ingredients and the chef has a perfected recipe book. Veal Valdostana literally melted in my mouth. Il Castello draws an older crowd compared to his other Restaurant “Lenny’s Seafood and Steakhouse “, but I think the clientele are wise to the slightly upscale dining options here.
Always a great meal !This is our "goto" restaurant , that we go to regularly. The food is varied enough to always get a new taste. Service is truly impeccable. And on Mondays, we go to their sister restaurant, Lennys in Larchmont for similar fare, plus prime steaks.
Yep, good food consistently.
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.
