Get the chicken!

I have been going here with both family and friends for years! I can't say the decor has changed much at all...it could use a bit of a freshening up. But, we don't go for the decor, we go for the food! And, we have never been disappointed! The fried chicken is not only the best around, but... read more

I've been going to Castelli's (Moonlight) since I was 14 and that's nearly 50 years. The food is okay, but doesn't seem to be as good as it used to be. The salad (House) that I've loved was smaller and the lettuce seemed wilty. The chicken was okay. The service was good. I don't know that it will be my... More

First, service great! Salad as previous reviewer stated. Nothing but lettuce and over dressed. House dressing good but with just a little effort salad could have been so much better. Bread o.k. Nothing special. Ravioli just came. Will report in a few minutes. O.k. server needs help. Ran out of cabernet. Debbie the server just came over and said holler... More

Well I'll start it off by saying our waiter was good. We ordered spaghetti and meatballs, and the ravioli dinner with meatballs. We had the house dressing on our salads. When he brought out the salads it was just salad, no tomato or onion and it was soaked in their dressing. Salad was limp like our had been sitting in... More

We had a group of friends who ordered a variety of food for lunch. We all had salad which was great with the house dressing. I had the fish and chips which was delicious. The white fish was light and flaky. Others in our group had chicken, which is one of the specialties for Castelli's. The chicken was juicy and... More

We use Castelli's every time we visit Alton as many of our locals in St. Louis are unaware of it so they get to try something different. And every time they perform. The service is quick, the food is delicious and delivered hot. I'm always please to introduce people to their signature items such as the Roman Salad dressing and... More

My favorites here are the spaghetti Bolognese and the fried chicken. It's hard to pass up either one. The Bolognese sauce is like none i've tasted in the area and it is a huge portion of pasta. The chicken is broasted and the taste is incredible. I've been there numerous times and have never been disappointed with the food or... More

This place was called "The Moonlight" for fifty years or so until new management took over a few years ago. Whatever you call it, it is a good, solid, family-run favorite that is very popular with the locals. It's known for it's fried chicken, but the Italian dishes are great too. Portions are healthy and the price is not bad.... More
