The Chateau Restaurant chain is owned/operated by the Nocera family, established in Waltham many years ago. Now they've grown to several stores throughout Massachusetts.....Bottom line is this: Get to one of them...they are awesome in prices and quality of food and service. A definite cannot miss !!!

My Italian-American inlaws don't really eat this way at home, but when they want comfort food that speak southern Italian, this is where they head. I was in town for a funeral and afterward the family rented a full room, and the restaurant set out trays of food that they served us from. For banquet food, it was pretty darn... More

I think most families grew up at this restaurant, they had more functions here. Now they are all over the place. This is the place to go!!!!

Sorry mama but this is just as good as yours! We ordered penne and meatballs and Italian sausage. The sauce was oh so good! Tomato paste base and stewed tomatoes are simmered to perfection. Just the right amount of spices makes this pasta sauce a southern Italian staple. The meatballs with the right amount of breadcrumbs and Parmesan cheese. The... More

Anytime you are looking for basic, comfort food Italian, this is the place for you. It's been around forever and keeps expanding so it must be doing something right. Nothing fancy, just good food, service and prices that will make you happy. The fried ravioli are a treat!

Food was delicious (The Chateau in Waltham is the original and the BEST). The bread is to die for, but I can't say enough good things about Dorothy. She was funny, talkative, and such a warm waitress. She made the whole experience so wonderful that we will definitely ask for her again. Have eaten at Norwood, Burlington and Westboro, but... More

My family and I have been going to the Chateau for years for lunch and dinner. The food is always good, the service is helpful, and we love the endless scali bread! We typically order the entrees, so have only had the pizza once - it was good. We especially enjoy the lasagna, chicken parm, eggplant parm, and the chicken... More

We have been frequent guest at the Chateau for many years. Always consistent, always good. We have had lunches and dinners ranging from salads, to Italian and surprisingly the turkey dinner and on st pats day, corned beef and cabbage. Excellent! Nice place to relax. Try the bar side if it is just the two of you.

This family restaurant has been around for years and that's not a surprise. Their spaghetti with meat balls and their toasted ravioli are to die for. The staff is always friendly and efficient. For the buck, you can't do better.

When we lived in Belmont in the 60s and 70s we often came here. It's been a while since then and apparently both we and the restaurant have changed. One of the things we looked for was the bread; it does not taste as good as it used to. The salads were very good and there was a large choice... More
