Recommended by our hosts we walked to Castro's to find they had an $18 night for pizza or pasta. It was very busy but they managed to find us a table and then were happy to move us later once the place had thinned out and it was a bit cool where we were. The place smelled good and the... More

Quiet evening for myself and 2 companions. Castro's had been recommended, and we were surprised firstly by the casual way in which they appeared at first. Then their real professionalism showed through. Service was excellent, and the food - although we all had simple items off the menu - were splendidly cooked and presented. The wine list was more than... More

We had a very enjoyable meal here - two vegetarians and two meat eaters all found the food very much to their liking. The waitress was friendly and helpful. They didn't have our first choice of wine but the one she recommended was excellent and cheaper!

Decent restaurant. Went there with work colleagues. Service at right pace. Food good. Friendly staff. Had steak. Little more cooked than asked but good all the same.

Friends and family had an enjoyable meal at this busy and friendly restaurant. Those at the bar were enjoying themselves so you would not want to be looking for a quiet or romantic dinner here. It is all pretty informal but the predominantly Italian menu is good and my spaghetti marinara was excellent and others with me enjoyed pizzas and... More

Arrived before 6:30pm for an early dinner. Stood waiting for several minutes while the wait staff served other patrons, but didn't bother to acknowledge us. We chose a table as the one offered was in the outside section that appeared to be an add on. Both the pizza my friend had and the seafood pasta I ordered were very tasty.... More

Deplorable service, waited a good twenty minutes for our drinks then watched them sit on the bar for another five minutes. So my husband and I took it upon ourselves to get them! One waitress to a busy restaurant 'not good enough' We never got asked if we ever wanted another drink? Oh and seeing as though there was only... More

Never known pizza to completely burn our mouths and lips. Ordered a Castro's pizza (takeaway)and could barely eat it. Have eaten plenty of pizza in our time, but never so incredibly hot that it burned our mouths ! We tasted the pepperoni on its own but it was okay. We think someone must have made a mistake with the tomato... More
