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.

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?

Food was excellent. Quarters were a little tight, I imagine because this restaurant is so popular and-busy they try to accommodate as many as possible and keep the customers moving at fast pace.. We got the last reservation on a Saturday night. The waiters were professional and gracious. Honestly, we felt a little unappreciated and rushed out when our bill came from manager -when we hadn’t even received our coffee or dessert. He was apologetic and offered after dinner cordials when he realized , however message was sent; No lingering too busy! Food was delicious though -guess we were lucky to have reservations on such a popular night

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.

A bit expensive as we all went for the “special”...1/2 lobster, calamari and mussels. But what the hell, it was Christmas eve. Absolutely delicious. And the grassini, the mini breadsticks...a nice touch. Had to order more.

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.
