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:
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.

    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.

    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!

    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

    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!

    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.

    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.
