Ristorante Castello at Blue Bell
Food was very good, service, on a slow night , was pathetic .. Party of 5, 4 dinners were served at more or less same time, though one was the Bronzino special, with the smallest piece of fish ever served ..alas, 5 minutes later , another plate of Bronzino was provided, must have found the rest of portion! 5 th entree was delivered 10-15 minutes after the first 4.. bread? Oilve Oil was there, no bread..we asked the server for bread , yet never arrived...Water? You get one glass...not a refill to be found... for a place that wants to compete with other white linen table cloth restaurants, this place is lacking...It was our first visit, and shame on us..we should have stayed with Blue Bell Inn.
Perfect place to catch up with friends. Food was excellent!
Great food, service and very enjoyable.
2 of us ordered the tuna special. It was topped with a large sweet scallop and cooked perfectly. Service was attentive and as customers we felt appreciated. Will be back.
Great time great food. Enjoy every time we go. Service is always great. Plus it's A BYOB
Been there for the first time and it will not be the last! We had langostine and mussels seafood pasta, porcini pasta, burata salad with arugula and a very delicious sauce, fried calamari and bruschetta was if you want to drink wine it is BYOB, for others they have a bar.
Our food as always was excellent, that is one of the reasons why I brought my cousin who is from Italy there. She speaks with a heavy accent. I mention the accent because our waiter mocked her. He was so rude. He kept saying well I’m Irish so I don’t know what that is. He ripped the menu out of my hands after we ordered two entrees , well there was three of us, so I didnt even have a chance to tell him my order before he was gone from the table. This went on and on. My advice is if you don’t care for people, find a new job! Because being hospitable and providing a good service is what this Industry is all about.
Had not been here for some time and was better than ever!! Can’t wait to return.
One of the best meals we've had in a long time. My husband is still raving about his veal chop!!
We celebrated my husband’s birthday at Castello’s with our two young children. We sat outside next to beautiful outdoor heaters. The staff was very friendly to our daughters and accommodating to children’s food choices. Our meals were delicious. We had a lovely night and look forward to visiting again!
The food was delicious. The waiter was attentive.
Exceeded my expectations.
Great service and food. Enjoyable
First time trying Ristorante Castello really enjoyed the food and atmosphere.
Wonderful Friday lunch gathering for dear and close friends. Entire party was delighted with food, service and level of comfort. Much appreciated!
We stopped going to Castillo’s , even though we enjoyed the food, because the service was so bad. Well we have been back 3 times this past month. Felt very safe, well spaced between diners. Excellent food and service. Can’t wait to try more things on the menu and their specials. Like the option of Bring your own wine or being able to order a drink from the bar. Definitely will be back again soon.
Outstanding whole bronzino, cleaned by chef, and superb service by John. A simply elegant place & satisfying meals.
Food is always delicious!
Very nice evening
Service was excellent, food was very good and they were very kind to let us stay as long as we liked.
Very good food and friendly and attentive service. Interesting menu. Nice, local restaurant in an informal setting.
Food was excellent. Our waitress was very sweet but the support staff needed some training, i.e. reaching over me to pick up my husband's dirty dishes rather than walking to the other side. This has become our favorite go to place despite the service this time. We've had excellent service in the past.
We love going to this restaurant ! Staff is always lovely and food is fantastic all the time!! Wonderful!!
A great local place to have an upscale meal in a friendly, family-oriented atmosphere.
From the start, was just underwhelmed. Sat at the table for a while until we get spoken to by waitress.. ordered the grilled calamari and it was over cooked and rubbery. The food was under seasoned too. Really disappointed
They were following all the COVID guidelines for safe dining. The food was excellent as was the service.
One of our favorite restaurants to go to. Always great food and staff is always pleasant
Food and Service were excellent.
Most frequently our "go to" place. We can always anticipate good food for good value and, since it is a byob, we can take the wine we like. On this particular visit we invited an elderly friend to join us as a going away time together before she moves. As predicted, the menu was inviting with lots of choices; our selections came out prepared to our liking. However, there were two things for which we had to apologize to our guest: a group of (I believe 8) millennials were dining/celebrating before we arrived and were still there when we left; making conversation difficult, and, secondly, we had to explain that our server wasn't normally so careless and "rough" serving food and retrieving dinnerware. The pandemic has been hard on everyone; I am pretty sure this evening was a "fluke." Too bad it was the evening we chose to invite a special guest!
We loved it!
We were alone in the back dining room, so plenty of space to converse freely. After delicious apps of Oysters Rockefeller and fried oysters, we had quite a long wait for dinner. We wondered whether the chef had forgotten about us, but noticed the dining room was rather full as we sat down. The staff assured us it was on its way. The food was very good. Dessert was a take-out as we had to get back to let the pooch out!
The food is fantastic, especially a few of the pasta dishes on the menu (gnocchi, bucatini, etc.) I would strongly recommend this place to anyone looking for great food with a nice yet laid back atmosphere. Distancing was good and we felt completely comfortable with indoor dining.
Castello never fails us; the food is always good and the service friendly. This week’s “special” menu contained a bevy of intriguing appetizers; I chose a special beet and goat cheese salad and then two appetizers as my entree; never disappointed me and I was glad I made the decision.
Since it was my birthday, I was happy to hear John’s voice as he sang me a personal Happy Birthday. A wonderful evening all the way around.
Excellent! We had a wonderful evening with friends!
3 of 4 meals was not very good. My wife’s fish was full of bones.
great menu and service. Food was delicious and will eat there again.
Food was very good. A little over priced but nice that they allow you to bring your own wine.
Excellent meal as always.
excellent food and prompt service will return again
Kitchen was extremely slow getting food out even though the restaurant was not overly busy. Server seemed somewhat frustrated by this.
Good experience but they put people at tables too close together.
