I don't understand why others are bashing the decour of this restaurant. It's European Decour and tile floors are perfect for an Italian restaurant. The service is impeccable. The food was very good. I had rissoto with scallops which was outstanding. I will return to this restaurant.

We have been visiting this restaurant for several years. We are Never disappointed. The food is outstanding. The service is fantastic. It can be a little noisy as it has tile floors. My husband and I have date nights here and our grown children love it when we take them for special occasions.

A party of four for dinner with no air conditioning in the room we were in. I enjoyed my veal francese which was not a menu item, but was totally uncomfortable for the entire dinner due to the heat.

If it wasn't for the very gloomy interior and fairly uninspired décor, I may be able to recommend Castello Restaurant a little more enthusiastically. My dish, which I ordered from the day's specials, was beautifully cooked - in terms of the protein - but the way-too-hard broccoli was more for decoration than to eat ... it was almost raw.

Dinner for two. My wife had scallops, which were prepared in an elegant manner. I had veal, which had an excellent sauce. For a high quality restaurant, Castello fills the bill.

While Connecticut is sadly littered with mediocre Italian restaurants, Castello is a refreshing improvement. They serve well prepared, primarily northern Italian dishes. Their veal dishes are superb. While we generally avoid Italian restaurants due to their uninspired cooking Castello is one we enjoy returning to.

My boyfriend and I were on our way to grab some pizza, but we drove by and decided to give it a try. We always wondered how the place was, and after reading all the reviews, he turned in.... The restaurant was beautiful inside, and of course we were underdressed. We still decided to stay for dinner. The hostess and... More

We went to Castello based on recommendations and knew what to expect. The food was very good but I will just make a remark about the desert, I have never seen a soufflé with ice cream on top as the whole idea of a soufflé it is to be fluffy! The service was great, a lot of attention but the... More

I would suggest a different Italian restaurant over this one any day. We went here on NYE for dinner, mainly because it was a last resort, but I saw the reviews and thought maybe it would be good. I've never reviewed a restaurant at such a low rating before, but this place gave me no choice. The portions were unsurprisingly... More

Went here on a group on last night so this was the first time. As a previous reviewer stated don't judge a book by its cover. First drove by it and was unsure whether we wanted to try it. We were happy we did. I had a chop special that was very tasty and the wife had a seafood special... More
