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.

Fabulous food and ambience. Big fan of the gigantic stuffed artichoke. The chicken with sausage and peppers was outstanding and the veal was so tender you could cut it with your fork — no knife needed. Wish that they would open up another one in the city — we would come often!

The moment you walk in to the restaurant you are welcomed and seated immediately. The restaurant is small so reservations are a must. The list of specials is varied and very interesting. The menu is plentiful. Service is prompt, food arrives hot and wait staff is very attentive. I would only say that their wine is pricey which is too bad because the food is so excellent you want wine to go with it!

Food was not worthy of prices. Fresh pasta “pescatore “ was clams and mussels and a single shrimp with a mass of stuck-together pasta clumped under the shells. With seemingly hundreds of Italian restaurants in southern Westchester, it’s easy to do better.

The outstanding feature about Il Castello is the way customers are treated. We hadn't been here in a year, yet we were made to feel as if we had been at the restaurant yesterday. In addition, the food is delicious. My husband says the pasta e fagioli is the best ever, and my daughter thinks the stuffed artichoke is fabulous. We love dining here, and only wish it were closer to us.

Veal as a main course was very small. Husbands food was over cooked. Should have sent it back. My veal with prosciutto and cheese was sliced very thin. Don’t order veal if you are hungry. Eggplant Rollatini was excellent.

Il Castello has yet to disappoint. Celebrated our anniversary on a quiet Tuesday evening. Lenny and his staff went above an beyond to make this night special for the two of us. The meal was outstanding and we can’t wait to get back to this hidden gem on Mamaroneck Avenue.

The ink pasta with Lobster and clams and mussels was sensational . My husband and I shared the meal . The pasta was al dente.. Leo our waiter was attentive and informative . He suggested a great Savion Blanc wine from new Zealand. My sister had the Branzini with herbs and lemon and was moist melt in your mouth .

Looking forward to returning for another memorable meal.

Made a same day reservation on Valentines day for 4 people at 7:00. We were greeted at the door with a fine hello and our table ready for us. The service was excellent. Leo and the rest of the staff were friendly and attentive. The food was outstanding. Appetizers were well made and well sized. The entrees were delicious and again not overly large but more then enough for a healthy portion. Dessert was surprising as the Ricotta cheesecake was one of the best I have ever eaten. We will be back

It's a shame, Il Castello food was always delicious but the service staff was very unattentive, it made our last dinner so unenjoyable. There is no excuse, the restaurant isn't that big. We'll return, hopefully, Lenny will improve the service staff.

I really wanted the swordfish, but they ran out of it. The prongs of my fork were askew. They offered no fruit for dessert. Most fine restaurants offer strawberries with whipped cream. Other than that, my follow-up dish was good.

Very much a small local place that caters to their regular customers. In fact most of the restaurant seemed to be populated with regulars. Special Branzino was the best fish I have ever had . . .. however, salad was nothing special, three veal dishes ordered by 3 other diners were not at all good and pasta was to quote my husband, "probably Ronzoni." for the prices go elsewhere for Italian food, if an italian restaurant cannot serve good pasta and good veal then what's the point?
