Ristorante Castello at Blue Bell
Good food and efficiency of service were both typically excellent. Tables still a bit cramped for 4 diners. Last night the servers seem to have an 'edge' attitude- verbal communication didn't seem to have a 'smile' on it.Specifically the artichoke appetizer and tuna entree were beyond excellent as was the pasta with calm sauce. BYOB is always a plus.
I've been there 5 times now and I've always had a good experience. The food is consistently good as well as the service. Even my mother who is a picky eater enjoyed it and polished off her apps and meal. It's a little pricey but you save on alcohol because it's BYOB which I much prefer. I'll definitely keep going back.
Service wasn’t so great and pasta special wasn’t good. Disappointed as I’ve been to Costello’s numerous times. Fell short this time.
This has been our "go to" restaurant when we take friends out to eat. The waiter gets an A rating when it comes to remembering and reciting a very long list of specials. Unfortunately, our guest was given an incorrect main course. This took some time to correct. The noise level in our dining room made normal conversation nearly impossible. As always the food was superb!
Always fabulous. The food and service is above amazing
Excellent Italian food! Great portion size and friendly service.
we were there at lunch time and made reservation day before. Reservation was easy with cell phone. Food was good as usual and also price was resonable. I do not have any complain.
Impressive menu, decent service, delicious food. An old Italian classic place. I will definitely go again.
Service is good and food was pretty good. I ordered the Roman artichoke special and it was good but very oily - a drizzle of olive oil would be good but it was drowning in oil. Other than that, the meal was fine.
First time visit at Castello and it will certainly not be my last. The restaurant was comfortable and well appointed. Service was superior with kind and informative staff. Our seafood pasta entrees were flavorful and exceptionally prepared with light sauces and the freshest seafood and produce. Can't wait to return. Thanks to all who made this first visit memorable.
Great food, our server Laura was excellent! Recommend highly
They have a bar for liquor but are BYOB for beer and wine. That wasn't clear beforehand.
Great food great service have been here twice and will visit many more times
The waitress, Laura, had an attitude. After we told her that we were not ready to order yet we waited at least 15 minutes for her to come back. She was not very pleasant in a small restaurant where you expect people to be nicer
Everything was terrific esp app lump crab w/ mushrooms in brandy sauce and lobster ravioli in vodka sauce. You’re my new favorite restaurant. This is my 3rd time in last few months and I’ll
Be back next wkend w/ my husband and friends.
Great food and great service
Everything was really fine, but places have to learn that when someone has 2 small children with them in a relatively empty place, sitting 5 loud and somewhat foul mouthed individuals next to them is really silly. It is done for the restaurants convenience and not that of their customer
This is one of our favorite restaurants. The service is always great. John, our waiter, is friendly & knows the menu. We've never had a bad meal. My husband had the strip steak with blue cheese special & I had the risotto & seafood, scallops, mussels, clams & shrimp. We've taken many friends here. I highly recommend Castello's.
A great spot for fantastic fresh Italian food. BYOB is also a plus. Service is outstanding and friendly.
Overall enjoyable. It must have been a busy night because our dinner took a very long time to come out.
Our daughter and her husband were visiting from out of town. We all enjoyed the dinner. We decided that when they visit again, we will definitely dine at your restaurant.
The service was very slow. We had to wait over 30 minutes for our 8 pm reservation. Then, the wait staff kept walking by our table. The food was VERY salty and came out differently than requested. For example, I asked for a little bit of sauce of my gnocci and it came out drowning in the pink sauce. This was not our first visit- the last time the experience was much better.
Birthday with my friends
Always consistent in both service and food. Well worth a visit if you are looking for a restaurant that makes you feel welcome !
Terrific restaurant with many specials. Food is wonderful!
Early impromptu dinner and was offered the table by the front door with an empty restaurant to choose from. Moved to a table by the swinging door into the kitchen which was noisy but not an issue. Pasta and soup apps were very tasty. Appreciate the ability to have pasta entrees made into apps. Bronzino only had one bone. Not bad! Orange Roughy was excellent as usual. Veggie and Potato sides are always finished and bread was incredibly fresh. Waiters were very attentive and plates were cleared quickly and glasses were refilled promptly. Come here about once every 2 months. Will be back.
Great food, and lots of interesting specials.
Nice birthday dinner.
Food was delicious, especially the branzino which was filleted table side. The service was good, although it was a little slow. It's BYO for wine which is a plus and the atmosphere is nice too.
Wonderful food, great Staff! byob....what else could you ask for
Well. I’ve been here before and had a good experience but the place has always had a weird vibe about it. It’s sort of like going to us wedding venue without a wedding. Sparse decor and strange vibe. The food is good enough but the chicken saltimbocca I had was just chicken breasts with smoky cheese and brown sauce. No prosciutto or sage which are hallmarks of the dish. Just weird preparations. Overhearing the specials recited at the table next to us after we ordered was a completely different assortment. Made us wonder. Oh well. It’s close by and convenient. I just hate when dishes aren’t what they should be. Indicates inexperienced kitchen staff.
Not our favorite place. Overpriced and service is so awful. We only went b/c it's a favorite for senior citizens - and we were celebrating a 73rd birthday. Will not return.
Absolutely delicious and love that it’s a byob. You will be my new favorite Italian restaurant.
Great meal, early Sunday before snow storm, only one other table there. Excellent, friendly service. Stuffed octopus was delish as an appy. The capesante scallops were great, as was the seafood risotto and bucatini amatriciana. So many specials we couldn't remember them all! Great dinner and the fact that we could byob wine was perfect. Would definitely recommend.
Great place, it was a little pricy for us and not as intimate of an environment as we hoped as t got quite loud when room filled up with guests but food delicious and service excellent.
Fantastic. Great menue, serice and atmospere well beyond expectations.
Always outstanding food when you want something nicer than a regular restaurant. High end but not pretentious. Rack of lamb special was fantastic! Service is always attentive. Didn’t feel rushed
Fantastic experience. Table was ready when we arrived. Waiter allowed us time to talk with each other, and then took our orders. Scrumptious Appetizers came timely, the entrees were fabulous, and the desserts were divine. A wonderful way to celebrate our daughter's 48th birthday. (They even brought me mayonnaise and ketchup so I could make my own Russian Dressing for my salad.) The timing was perfect, as one of us had to leave after 1 3/4 hours for a musical gig.
Another delicious meal. Service was great and a good variety of menu choices.
