We stopped in for a dinner with the kids and we all came away pleased. The pizza carnuda ("meat lovers") was a hit with the kids and the adults enjoyed the pasta carbonara and primavera. Service was good - they brought the kids' food out first and were otherwise perfectly attentive. The out the door cost was reasonable. I'll go... More

Not massively impressed by this Italian. Service was slow and the food was nothing special. The flavours were simply not there. Nice decor and nothing overly offensive, but nothing to write home about either.

I just back from eating at Castello, and I have to say the food was on point. They start of with a free appetizer dish called pesto bread, it was fantastic. I ordered the broccoli soup, and pesto spaghetti, I highly recommend them. They both brought fresh bread! An abundance of bread which isn't a bad thing, but I couldn't... More

I reviewed Il Castelo over two years ago so when I had the chance to chose a restaurant to go with family for a special occasion I decided to go back. Since that time, they remodeled the place, it looks chick and casual, better than the old brooklyn style decor they had before. The food is very good, I tasted... More

Pleasant atmosphere in a spacious restaurant. The food is generally good, although high calorie, mostly pastas. (Don't go here if you're on a diet.). Decent drinks. I was disappointed in the steak, which was thin and tough.

Although the food was excellent. The service was poor. We asked for menus and got them...20 minutes later. We ordered the food and the waiter said, "there is allot of people so the food is going to take a while". By saying this a waiter is clearly denying to provide good service. Also, when we called for a reservation the... More

Nice entourage with good service but the food is a bit overrated in the reviews. We ordered lasagna and ravioli in two different styles. The ravioli was a bit too dry. Still a nice place to spend a dinner.

I went with a friend for dinner at Il Castello and enjoyed it very much. They have a wide selection of Italian entrees. The Bolognese and Puttanesca sauces on spaghetti pasta were both very good. The restaurant has a full bar the glasses of house wines by the glass are very good.
