The steaks are good, the salad with roman dressing and good fried chicken. Friendly staff, atmosphere. You can get a ride from the casino if you need it.

We visited for a meeting and had dinner. I had the "special" 8 oz sirloin. Good, plain steak. It was cooked as requested with mushrooms and was very good. It came with a huge, perfect baked potato and salad. I opted for the house dressing which was a sort of caesar. It was excellent. My wife had chicken livers which... More

Most of the food is very good here, I particularly enjoy the fried chicken and breaded pork chops. The grilled pork chops are also very good. Tracy's special salad is also excellent. Good bar and good desserts as well. Great friendly service. Gets crowded on weekends, especially on Sunday.

Ordered a carry-out family dinner consisting of chicken fingers, mashed potatoes, green beans, salad and bread. It was truly the most bland meal I've had in a very long time. Chicken fingers had absolutely no flavor with the exception of the honey mustard sauce we made ourselves because the restaurant didn't provide any. I've had more flavorful green beans opening...

We were looking for a place to eat in Alton and did a google search. Castelli’s came up with 4.5 stars and only 2 dollar signs. After reading the reviews we decided this was the place to take our out of town visitors. The menu has a lot to offer. Everyone raved about the chicken as we came in. Even... More

Food was average, nothing special. The house salad is more like a large bowl of slaw. The bread was gleaming white, processed cardboard. The service was very slow for a Tuesday night. The food was overpriced. Skip it

I love the tortilenni alfredo! I love the house salad! I always order the same things because they are the best! Very nice place with real cloth napkins but you can still dress nice cascual.

The right blend of perfect atmosphere, efficient & friendly service, and superb menu offerings made Castelli's "Moonlight" the perfect place for a fun, memorable lunch. Seven of us ordered a variety of foods: steaks, Italian food, and chicken. Everything was excellent. The atmosphere enabled us to have an undistracted, meaningful conversation.
