Grilled salmon topped with fresh tomato and basil
Excellent food. Pleasant atmosphere. Service was generally good. Will definitely return.
Food was great. The ambient was also lovely. Just wont give a 5 stars due to service. Although our waiter was very nice, she took almost 45 m to take our order. We had asked her for 5 extra minutes and she never came back until 45 later.
The food as always was superb and our Waiter John was fabulous. I highly recommend Ristorante Castello.
Ristorante Castello is our favorite restaurant for family celebrations -- birthdays, anniversaries, graduations, etc. The menu has great selections for everyone's palate, from age 11 to 81, and 4 from age 17-25. In addition, there are always a number of "Specials".
It is well worth the cost, which is reasonable based upon the quality of the food and the service. My veal parmigiana was so big, that I had to take home 2/3 of it, enough for 2 more meals !!!
This was our second visit to Ristorante Castello and it won't be our last. The food is incredible (huge selection), the servers are easygoing but attentive, and the ambience is pleasant. It was a wonderful experience with good friends.
Food was outstanding and our server and his support staff were attentive in just the right amount. Wish the hostess could have been a bit more congenial and not made us feel like we were doing her a favor by eating there!!! You could tell that many of the people there were long time customers but for a new customer the treatment should not be in that much contrast!!!
food was bland and waiter (owner) thought he was clever but it was annoying and sarcastic.
Food was delicious... as it always is!!
Outstanding food and service at this excellent BYOB
The food was very good and nicely presented. We had some problems with the wait staff. Our appetizers arrived in a timely manner but after that we were forgotten. We then waited 45 minutes with dirty dishes on the table and had to ask what happened to the rest of our meal. Other diners who arrived after us were already eating. Ten minutes later our entrees finally come out. Our waiter later apologized and did compensate us with free dessert. We plan on giving them a second chance with a future visit as we did enjoy the meal once it arrived.
We did not realize we would be limited to a special (overpriced) Valentine's menu. My salad was very pricey and tomatoes were pulpy and salad was bland. My entree (chicken with vegetables) was tasty but half of it was cold. The calamari was good. My husband thought his osso bucco was just ok. Our server John was not great and seemed to not want to be there.
Valentines with kids
Raised prices $10.00 on every entree and desert for Valentine’s Day.Had lobster ravioli with a lobster tail on top. Lobster was chewy and tasteless. Ravioli was fishy. Very average. Waiter was great.
We have been to Castello a number of times and it is consistently good. John is a waiter with a nice manner.
I took a dear friend for a birthday lunch. We were greeted as we entered the restaurant & seated promptly.
Water was poured as we settled & our byob wine opened.
Our server was courteous & attentive.
The food arrived timely. Nice presentation & hot. We sat & talked about 2 hours, the place wasn’t busy, we weren’t rushed at all. This was my first visit & I plan to go again.
As we entered, we were seated at a nice round table. Bread was in the table and water was quickly served. The waiter allowed us to look at the menu then came with a long list of specials, all of which sounded marvelous. We ordered and the salads and appetizers quickly followed. The entrees were superb and we toped it off with a piece of black forrest cake to share. A wonderful night to celebrate my Mom's 89th birthday!
Attractive dining rooms; varied menu and excellent service provided by John O'Hara.
My dining partner had previously had the artichoke appetizer so we ordered that again and it was very good, quite different. I ordered the same pappardelle with wild mushroom sauce which I had before because it was so good. Even the bread is delicious.
I went there for one reason: for my son to taste the wonderful artichoke appetizer. It never disappoints!! And neither did the mussels, which was my main course. Bread is great, too.
Always excellent food and service. My favorite restaurant
Server was amazing. Food was prompt, and atmosphere was relaxing. Love the place.
Consistently good! Enjoy getting Philadelphia Italian restaurant quality so close to home!
his is ne of our favorite restaurants. Food and service is always very good. You can bring your own wine, but they also serve wine by the glass and mixed drinks. We forgot out bottle at home and had to buy a glass it was very good and reasonably priced. Would recommend this restaurant.
When we arrived, we were unhappy with our table next to a service area. The staff very courteously gave us a private table in the other room. John and Laura were very accomodating. We are neighborhood people and repeat diners.
We had the best waiter and waitress., we had a 2 year older they could not have been nicer they were very accommodating. Food was delicious love Castello for birthday dinners.
Food is consistently good. Loud restaurant though for sure.
Birthday dinner was great! Food was fresh and delicious! Service was excellent!
Great place to celebrate a special occasion!
We loved being seated in the alcove. Very romantic. My Caesar salad and veal Castello were excellent as usual. My wife had the mista salad and the Chilean sea bass special. Once again excellent. Patrick, our waiter impressed us with his flawless recitation of the numerous specials and his explanation of each.
My food was great. my husband did not like his: breaded Veal chop with Arugala
Wonderful food in an inviting atmosphere with great service. One of my favorite restaurants and consistently delicious.
Fabulous evening! Ristorante Castello at Blue Bell is a terrific restaurant and always a great choice for any occasion.
Nice place, good atmosphere. Just not for new years eve. Fixed overpriced menu for NYE followed by excruciatingly slow service from kitchen. Waiter(s) apologized for slowness long after the rush at 930pm.
New Years Eve
No. This was my second experience. On the first visit we ordered a screwdriver and were told that they didn't have any orange juice. On this trip the food was very good, the prices were at least 50% higher - maybe 100% higher - than a standard menu. The service was horrible on many different levels. My suggestion would be that the waiter doesn't give up his day job. Being a server is not his thing. The 10% tip was not a mistake - it was a statement for the poor service.
We have been to Costellos on prior New Years Eve. This year was disappointing. The people in our party who ordered salads never got them until after everyone else had eaten their soup and only received them when we asked the waitress where our salads were. Dessert included coffee but our waitress never asked if we wanted coffee and just brought our dessert. The waitress appeared to be none too happy that she was working on New Years Eve.
Ristorante Castello provides a consistently high level of service and superior food.
Our waiter was very good and we were not rushed with our dinner.
It was a very busy Christmas Eve with few area restaurants serving dinner. Castello no only stayed open until 10 pm, they served their full menu complete with a large number of additional special selections. Servers and other staff had the business of efficiency perfected, helping one another in smooth perfection. We were seated upon arrival. Our cocktails were made perfectly and we were given some time to enjoy them while reading the menu. The lobster bisque was very nice, but the pistachio crusted oysters were overly breaded and dry. The stuffed pork chop was huge and delicious; the rack of lamb was tender and a nice portion. The carrot cake was moist and decadent. Our server was extremely professional but he made it clear that he didn’t want to engage in conversation, a bit too dry for my gregarious nature. Still, he was efficient and professional. It’s really great that it’s BYOB and they can also make you a cocktail. There’s no physical bar where you can sit. We will surely return.
